    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer:

    This product was actually suggested to me by one of the girls at an Ulta location. I was very skeptical about it having that my initial thought was that I didn't need moisturizer because I'm extremely oily. I have been using this product with drug store foundation, which by the way get's me oily within 2 hrs and OMG. My skin never looked this matte. It's great, I highly recommend this.

    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer:

    I definitely like this product for moisturizing oily skin. However it doesn't allow primer to go on smoothly after. I still get out and feel the need to use a primer under my makeup. This product is great especially for a makeup free day.
    Also I wish it had some spf!

    Great Lightweight Lotion

    By SpaGirl

    from Chicago

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Light weight, mattifying,

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Oily/Combination skin, sensitive skin

      Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer:

      Nice lightweight lotion that absorbs quickly and really does control oil. I found it to have sufficient moisturizing properties for my combination skin.

      If you're expecting to be oil free all day...I don't know of any products that provide all day oil control. But this does a great job of keeping oil at bay for 4 hours. I'm usually oily within an hour after applying makeup so I'll take the extra few hours of shine free! My only complaint is I wish it were unscented. Most Laroche products are...luckily the scent dissipates quickly.

        Although I find this very expensive at full price for the size of lotion you get, I find it very nice. It is smooth, feels great on my face and doesn't clog my pores. I notice the matt works well in the beginning but at some point it does come back if you do not wear makeup.

          I have very oily skin, acne prone, and recently very sensitive skin.
          This product has Saved my complexion! After a year of trying many top products, all causing irritation, allergic reactions, ect... My research led me to this.
          In a matter of 48 hours, it started working, and my skin now looks better than it has in a long time.
          I use this moisturizer with the Efacler Duo for best results.

            Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer:

            I struggles a lot with acne since I live in Florida's humid and hot weather and all the products I used even the expensive ones used to break out my skin , until I used effaclar mat oil free moisturizer. First of all its texture is super light and barely leaves a residue on the skin, it doesn't make my skin shine even under strong lighting which is great cos you can use it as a primer under makeup. It NEVER breaks my skin with acnes and keep my skin well moisturised. I have been using it for a year now and am not planning to change it . It's a really good quality product .

                I've known LaRoche Posay for awhile & was hoping this was effective in dealing with my oily / combination skin. But, my face got oily after a few hours of using. Returning it & not buying it again. Seems the only thing that works for me is oil control moisturizer by Mario Badescu.

                    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer:

                    To begin with, I have super oily skin and large pores, especially around my nose. I tried this lotion hoping it would at least reduce some of the oil, but alas, it did nothing. My pores looked the same and my skin was as oily as ever. I also found the scent rather strong - kind of a flowery perfume kind of smell. Not a bad smell, but I don't want my face to be scented. After a few days of using this and seeing no results I decided to return it.
