Whilst both are non-comedogenic (i.e. they do not clog the pores) and similar in formulation (other than in USA), the lotion is less viscous (thinner in consistency) than the cream, making it ideal for daytime use.
In both cases, the texture sits comfortably on the skin, isn’t thick or greasy and absorbs quickly, making it suitable for application prior to makeup (wait 5 minutes before applying makeup).
ACTIV O2 Skin Breakout Clearing Cream comes in a 50ml jar while the lotion is contained in a 75ml plastic tube.
