Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Stay Matte Hydrator:

Don't use this as a moisturizer! It works great as a primer. It stops shine and sits well under makeup. Even on days when I go out "natural" I like to wear it on top of my regular moisturizer to look less shiny.

    Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Stay Matte Hydrator:

    I have been searching far and wide for my whole adult life for something to help reduce my oily-ness. My whole face is like an oil refinery and its been that way my whole life. I've tried a few other products but have had allergic reactions. My worst spots are my t-zone, forehead, nose creases, and chin. So, pretty much my whole face. This product has helped reduce the amount of oil and I've only been using it for about 4 days. Im eager to see how it will hold up after a few weeks. It actually does help reduce pore size even as a stand alone product. It goes on pretty well but be sure to not rub it in completely or it will come off. My routine is: clean your face with whatever cleanser you use (I wash my face during my morning shower with just my bathing towel most days and ivory bar soap because i have sensitve skin ((i use an exfoliation glove once a week)), then i pat dry my face, i apply my moisturizing serum that i get from work and let it soak into my skin for about 5 minutes until it's gone, finally i apply the matte hydrator focusing a little more product on my more shiny areas. I usually use 2 pumps just so i know i have adequate coverage. I haven't tried applying twice a day like the instructions suggest because i do this before i leave for work and i don't have time to do it at work. I don't stay matte the whole i hours but the shine is definitely reduced significantly. Overall, i am very pleased with it after only being on it for a few days. But take in account for muggy/moist environments and hot flashes because oily skin tends to over react.

          Ok Mattifier

          By LHuynh

          from KCMO

          Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Stay Matte Hydrator:

          I am dry/dry combination and get very oily in some areas (cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose). I had some high hopes on this mattifying lotion, but after just about 2 hours, I was oily again. It felt and looked ok upon first application, but it did not hold up too well for me unfortunately. I think I will keep using it since it does seem to have some hydrating properties, but not as a means for good oil control.

          Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Stay Matte Hydrator:

          My skin is extremely oily and I tried several products but nothing worked for me at all. This product really helps my skip to stay matte, although at the end of the day my skin gets oily again I still like this product. Definitely I'll be buying this product along with the other 3-step products.

              A:

              Hi! Thank you for your question. The primary purpose of this product is to control oil on the surface that can make pores look larger. If you were looking for a foundation, this is more of a treatment product and won't offer any concealing. If you purchased this product at Ulta and would prefer a foundation, we are happy to exchange this item for you. If you are happy with the product, and it is meeting your needs, the use up rate will depend upon how often you are using it, and where you are applying it to your skin. We are happy to help in any way! Have a great week!

              Hi! Yes, you are correct! Cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, use your Stay Matte Hydrator and apply your primer right before your foundation. Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!

              Pore Refining Solutions Stay Matte Hydrator is a lightweight lotion that controls oil and minimizes the look of pores. It is not a makeup primer, but it will improve skin texture, causing your foundation to look smoother on the skin.
