I would say yes. Even if you are prone to acne or breakouts, you need to moisturize daily! If you do not, your skin will try to absorb moisture from other sources, such as your make-up (EWW!). I found that the only thing that prevented my breakouts was this moisturizer. Plus it's great, because it's a cream-gel formula. If you're oily, you definitely do not want a heavy cream. Hope this helps!

I didn't find this helpful for my oily skin at all, and found that it made my already very oily skin even more oily.
It has salicylic acid in it, but it just made my skin break out more. But best to ask a real physician, not the internet.
Keep calm and beauty on!

I have a similar skin type and this isn't working for me. I don't find it mattifies at all, it's actually quite greasy but at least it's not causing any breakouts (not helping either).

My skin is very oily and I also feel severe dryness under my skin after all those years of using acne related products. (Now I learned that it is really important to give your skin enough moisture even if you feel your skin is oily!!!)
I cannot tell this particular cream helps with acnes but it is not oily so it does not bring more acnes.

I would not say that this help eliminate acne. But it does not cause acne. I used it over top of Murad T-zone pore gel. It is a great combo for acne prone skin!

I do not think it treats acne, but I have not experienced any breakouts since starting to use it. I've been using it 1x/day for about two weeks.

This product is great for my combo, sensitive, acne prone skin?

This product does contain Salicylic acid, which is also used in many blemish creams. It might help with your issue as well.

You have totally just described my skin: oily t-zone and dry chin and all around my mouth up to my cheeks. When I use this cream/gel, I feel like my skin is moisturized, but not oily, and it stays that way all day! I would usually have to go blot my face or put some powder on the t-zone about 2-3 hours after doing my makeup, but this moisturizer keeps my oils under control. I would definitely recommend this moisturizer! And if you end up hating it (which I doubt) Sephora is pretty great about exchanges.
