Review: Suki Balancing Day Lotion

My sister passed me a sample of Suki Balancing Day Lotion a couple of months ago. Using it alone, I noticed that it really helps to control oil and keep my face matte during the day! (It doesn't really give a matte finish per se; I still need to follow up with loose powder, but it keeps my skin matte under the loose powder and prevents oil breakthrough.) So I purchased the full-sized bottle. It's a white, runny lotion with a heavenly floral scent that evokes ~luxury~. The beeswax gives it a bit of slip but it feels a wee bit heavy on my skin. 
After using it for a while (before starting on YULI), I noticed that it doesn't really moisturize very well - it would leave my skin dry at the end of the day, after working in an air-conditioned office. When in Hong Kong (winter), I tried layering it on top of YULI's M.E. Skin Fuel during the day, but it felt a little too heavy for me. 

I think this lotion would work better for oily skintypes, and I would use it in Singapore (summer weather), if I wasn't in air-conditioning (like maybe on a weekend). I realise I haven't said anything really good about the Balancing Day Lotion, but it keeps my face matte for a long time and that is exceptional! If you have an oily complexion - give it a try! Maybe try layering a hyaluronic acid serum underneath it? 

It contains willow bark extract (salicylic acid) and natural retinol, so it's good for oily, acne-prone skin!
