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

    I have been using this product for probably about 10+ years! I am extremely oily and sensitive. I use this as my moisturizer, under a primer and under makeup, everyday. It keeps my face from getting so oily throughout the day. I will even use it on the days I dont wear makeup. I love that it has spf in it. It spreads so easily you do not need a lot at all, so it lasts a very long time! It is definitely a must have for me!

                      If you're like me, then most sunscreens cause undeniable breakouts... I was skeptical when I first tried this product because it is really thick in consistency but it rubs in easily and absorbs without any residue left behind. I've been using this product every day as my daytime moisturizer on top of the acne clearing solution and I haven't had any issues with it whatsoever. Yay! I've noticed my overall skin tone has evened out significantly since using this product regularly and I don't get as oily either. Lastly, I'm very happy with the amount of hydration it provides as I was worried the mattifying aspect might cause dryness or just simply not moisturize enough but that's not the case at all. For reference, I have oily/combination skin and mild acne. Super happy with this product and I absolutely recommend it, worth the price and does exactly what it claims.

                            It can be good for combination skin. Because it's very mattifing some people who are drier in certain areas of their face like to use this in their T-Zone and a more hydrating moisturizer on the drier areas.

                            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.
