I used to use the Laneige Balancing Emulsion in LIGHT and that worked great for my acne prone skin with the water bank essence. Recently they stopped that line, reformulated the formula and came out this Balancing Emulsion for "Combination/Oily" Skin. With the previous formula, my combination, acne-prone, sensitive skin was healthy, hydrated, and clear with no break outs. Right when i switched to this moisturizer, but keeping all the same products for the other parts of my routine, my skin broke out horrendously. And it wasn't a normal bacterial acne break out, i broke out with stubborn fungal acne. There were bumps under the skin all over my face. I dont usually break out on my cheeks and chin but it was just FULL of under the skin bumps. Touching my face was painful even though the bumps were underneath the surface. I stopped using it for a week now and the bumps have cleared up and my face isnt as painful to touch.
The only thing i like about this product was it didnt make my skin too oily, i woke up feeling my skin was well hydrated and it really brightened the skin (it does contain niacinamide which brightens your complexion), making it look glowly. But if you are prone or had fungal acne before, i wouldnt try this moisturizer.
