          I had the problem of my oily skin coming through my foundation only hours after application. I use this product before I apply my foundation and I don't have the issue of the oil seeping through the foundation nearly as soon as before, or nearly as bad. I really like this product and won't put my foundation on without putting this on first.

              I've used this in the past and loved it. With my wedding coming up, I decided to spring for it again. However, it makes my face feel much drier than I remember. It does keep my oil under control, so that part I love. But I usually need to use it in combination with another, more hydrating face lotion to keep it from feeling dried out all the time.

                I apply this in the morning and it perfectly finishes off my skincare routine! Cleanser, toner, essence, serum, moisturizer (I don't use this as a moisturizer), sunscreen, and then this mattifier! I don't have to touch up my makeup anymore throughout the day & by the end of the day I just look a little dewy, not oily.

                  I have combination skin and suffer from moderate adult acne. I have had some bad experiences with products in the past causing allergic reactions so I am always wary to try new things. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!! It keeps my skin from getting too oily while keeping me moisturized. I feel like my makeup has never looked better! I highly recommend that you try this product if you want a moisturizer that mattifies while providing sun protection.

                      Comments about Murad Acne Complex Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++:

                      I have very oily skin, especially my t zone. I have been using this for only 3 days and I am already extremely impressed. I went to a baseball game yesterday, and after waiting in the hot sun and sweating for 45 minutes before we could go into the stadium, I cooked off and checked my t-zone: BARELY oily! Such minimal oiliness that it was as if I had just put the lotion on, like I had experienced with other oil control/mattifying lotions. This one though - it will be 10-12 hours later and my t-zone oil is being controlled! I only bought the starter pack for acne prone skin, but will definitely be buying the full size lotion.

                          I've tried a bunch of Murad products and I have always loved them. This is the first product that I didn't like. I actually wish I would've taken it back, but instead I used the entire tube. It was fine on my sensitive skin, but the feeling of the moisturizer was horrible. It was think, heavy, and didn't rub into my skin well. The only reason why I am giving it 2 stars instead of 1 is because it didn't cause me to break out like other moisturizers have. I really liked that it had SPF 15 in it, but sadly I won't be purchasing this product again.

Oil control is my main concern and so i cannot decide between this and the balancing moisturizer with spf (pink tube). And i do have visible pores. Please help

                              This product was designed to give matte skin for up to 8 hours with lightweight hydration. If controlling oil is your main concern, this is the right product for you.

                              You would apply this first and Invisiblur last before any color product. Think of it as your finisher.

                              You can use all of these items. It really depends on your main concerns. Typically we would say use 1 in the morning and 1 at night. For you, you can mix and match depending on what your skin is doing and how it feels. For example some days I use a few of the acne products and then some of the products from Age Reform. Other days I use some Environmental Shield products with the Age Reform.
                              As for the Oil-Control Mattifer - this is a very light moisturizer that will give the skin a matte finish. This woul dbe your last daytime step before apply any color makeup.

                              In a clinical study, Murad Acne Complex Oil-Control Mattifier was proven to control oil for up to 8 hours! It is an ideal choice for those with oily skin to help balance oil production and minimize shine. It provides lightweight hydration, so use of an additional moisturizer is optional. Its silky texture will also help to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores.
