      Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Oil Clearing Matte Moisturizer SPF 15:

      I bought this as a substitute to my usual Murad Oil Control Mattifyer SPF 15 to save a few bucks and regret it. Unlike Murad this left my face shiny and greasy looking as soon as I applied it. It also stung my face a little. I think it also aided in some new breakouts. I don't think I will even finish the bottle.

        Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Oil Clearing Matte Moisturizer SPF 15:

        This does had a low spf, which many people may like but since I use Dermalogicas primer and face tint I don't really need it. I will say, on the days when I like to go bare faced, this matte finish is nice as it reduces the shine on my forehead, nose and chin. This is the only matte moisturizer I have ever used so I have nothing to compare it to.

        Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Oil Clearing Matte Moisturizer SPF 15:

        Overall I really liked this product. I think it does exactly what it says it does, absorbs oils creating a matte finish, and protects against UVA/UVB. However, I have sensitive skin, and this lotion stings and burns my skin, A LOT! Enough that I'd say the cons outweigh the pros of this product.

          Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Oil Clearing Matte Moisturizer SPF 15:

          I use the cleanser and spray toner prior and allow the toner to dry. Then I apply a small amount of moisture and it's really light. Goes on smooth and isn't cakey like some matte moisturizers. Doesn't clog pores and feels great on my skin. No tightness or excess oil. Perfect balance.

                      • Q:

                        Dermalogica has both this moisturizer and also the Dermalogica Active Moist moisturizer. They're both marketed to reduce oil production and moisturize, but the latter costs a lot more. What's the difference between the two? Is the more expensive one more effective at reducing oil production?
