So this is a night treatment for blemishes. It is not a moisturizer. It has a rather gritty consistency and will take a while to absorb, but once it does it is dry, not oily at all. The thing is, it has this weird smell, not unbearable but not pleasant either, that takes some getting used to. I am willing to put up with it though because it dries pimples every time I use it (unless they are huge, in which case it might take 2 nights).
