          This product works well for extremely oily skin. The only con is I wish the SPF was higher than 15 at lease a 30 other than that it absorbs the oil throughout the day

            I have extremely oily skin, and I'm on acne medications minocycline and epiduo. The meds have worked and I'm acne free but I have a pretty greasy face. I used this under my Merle Norman CC cream & within minutes my face was shiny & pools of oil were forming in my t zone. Not worth the money.

              I use this product after my moisturizer and before I begin my makeup routine to try to minimize the slipping I was noticing would occur as the day wore on. It does seem to be helping. I have modified the collection of products I used along with my routine to try to combat that midday shine.

                  I had expected this to be mattifying, but I couldn't get it to work for me. It went on shiny and made me immediately look like I needed powder. I tried it alone, over primer, under primer and with foundation. It just didn't mattify at all. I think it's the octinoxate - tends to make me look greasy.

                    Skincare is key. No primer or makeup will work if skin is not taken care of. I use this on my tzone only and it controls my oils very well. I have extremely oily tzone. I notice certain makeup makes me more oily than others in conjunction with this, but nothing like before. This is the best I have found so far and love it. Started using Murad recently and I am very impressed. Will try other products.

                              I have very sensitive, oily, acne prone skin. Typically I have to blot my skin several times per day to take down the shine. No more blotting! Also my foundation seems to stay put so much better and no breakouts have been caused. Will definitely continue to use!

                                I use this product before my make up and it doesn't add any shine or greasiness throughout the day. I have oily/ combination skin especially t zone area. I find that using this product really helps control the oil in these areas as well moisture the rest of my face. Love that it has SPF in it as well.

                                    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.

                                    Yes, this product is step 3 - hydrate/protect - in your regimen, so it would be used as a moisturizer and sunscreen. Yes, apply it before your primer for best results.

                                    This product serves as a mattifying treatment, lightweight hydrator, and sunscreen in one. If you desire sun protection beyond SPF 15, you can certainly layer a higher SPF product over this product.
