Mentholatum Acnes Oil-Control Moisturizer

This is another product from Mentholatum. In case you're unaware, Mentholatum also owns Phisoderm, OXY and Softlips in the USA. This is a product of Mentholatum Asia.

Acnes is a facial skin care line that concentrates on the treatment of pimples and blackheads. It's targeted towards teens that's why their products are cheap.

Acnes Oil-Control Moisturizer is formulated to control excess sebum, unclog pores and treats and prevents pimples. It has SPF 15 PA+ for UVA and UVB protection.

What I like about this moisturizer is that the consistency is like gel. My face isn't sticky after I put this on. The only problem is, the gel moisturizer is a bit liquidy, so, I have to use a lot since it dries out pretty quick.

To test out if it's good in fighting pimples, I had my sister use it. My sister suddenly broke out pimples all over her face due to a moisturizer that didn't suit her. I had her use this instead. A week after, her pimples are still there.

This moisturizer is meant for oily skin. That's why it's so light-weight. And it also has oil-controlling properties. About that, it did kept my oil under control because I wasn't as oily on my t-zone as I normally am when using a different moisturizer.


  1. Do you know where I can buy this?

    1. And does this product have other products of the same line?

    2. Although Mentholatum is an American brand now (pHisoderm and OXY) this product is available in store only in Asia. Try to check their website -- to view the other product of this line.
