Will this help with acne?
I have combination skin, very dry chin, but very oily t-zone. I also have some acne and whiteheads. Is this moisturizer good for combo skin that is acne-prone? Thanks!

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!

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.

Question
Salicylic acid in the new one?
I had the older version of this moisturizer (bought it in Nov 2011), and salicylic acid wasn't listed as one of the ingredients. A sales rep at Sephora told me that they didn't add salicylic acid, even though it was in the ingredients online.

Does it or does it not have salicylic acid?

It does list salysilic acid in the ingredients about halfway through. This is my second jar of the 'repackaged' version and I haven't noticed any difference in it from the older version in the jar with the silver lid.

I have oily/combination skin and a very oily T-zone. It worked well for me, for about 3 weeks, but then my skin got used to it and started getting just as oily as before. Other than that, it is a great moisturizer. If your skin is not extremely oily, i think it can be a great choice.

I know there's a log code on the container but it wouldn't tell me the manufacture date. I guess most product in Canada or in Alberta province wouldn't have an expiry date. That's why I'm curious on how to find out about the expiry or maufacture date with that code.

Generally speaking, I wouldn't recommend using this for more than 6 months given that it doesn't have a pump and so you're dipping your fingers into it (and so bacteria can accumulate in it pretty easily). There isn't an expiration date on it like there would be for a lush product.

This moisturizer has been discontinued. A sales associate called around and confirmed this for me. I switched to Kate Somerville's Oil-Free Acne Moisturizer which has done wonders for my skin but it is double the price of the Korres. This Korres moisturizer was actually causing me breakouts. Murad could be a better option if you don't want to splurge too much.
