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

      I was looking for a moisturizer to use under my makeup and primer, but wanted something that wasn't heavy or something that was going to be greasy and oily. This worked perfectly!! It keeps the dry spots on my face moisturized and the oily spots matte all day long. I have very acne-prone skin and since it's oil free it hasn't broke me out at all. This product has definitely become a staple in my everyday routine.

          I like the smell of this a lot and I wish it worked. I think it did alright in helping my face stay matte, but this product pills on my face (like how fuzzy sweaters pill). No matter how gently or how long I waited to put it on, I always ended with little rolled lotion particles. Could be good for summer when I need the extra spf and mattifying but for now it's a no.

            It is effective in reducing the oiliness, though, not completely oil-free throughout the day. My face is even less oily when I use a primer + power foundation along with this lotion. Only 4 stars because it doesn't feel like my face is moisturized enough, however, when combining with another lotion it doesn't help reduce the oil.

                    I purchased this as a replacement for my Shea Moisture Problem Skin Moisturizer. The Shea Mositure product was too oily for my already oily combination skin. After using this "Matte Moisturizer," I have noticed a difference in my daily oil production but it definitely needs reapplication after a few hours.

                    • 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?

                      Will the product help repair/brighten skin? Side note- I am 24 with incredibly oily skin that is recently less break out prone. This works amazingly to keep oil away, but is this the best product for me?
