        Comments about Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion:

        I was very disappointed in this product. I have oily skin yet still need a moisturizer. When I put this on it's ok, but a few minutes later if I touch my skin it peels off. After a while it looked like I was shedding. I tried it for two weeks and it did this each time.

        In the morning I use it with the clearing mattifier and at night I use it with the overnight clearing gel. I am no longer oily through the day. I used to have to wipe my face down from the oil a few times a day.

        Comments about Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion:

        I love this product and I've been using it every day for several months. I have very oily and acne prone skin at 30+ and I switched to this from Clean & Clear's dual action oil-free moisturizer. That one would always make my skin look oily. This one makes my skin matte, soft, and doesn't sting at all like the old product did. It's a wonderful product for my skin, and I foresee using it it for years to come.

        The only con for me is a big one, though. After using the same bottle for a couple of weeks, it starts to clog and becomes nearly impossible to get any product out. This has happened with the last three bottles that I've had. I've had to stick paper clips and pins in to try to open up the clog, but end up having to ask my boyfriend to squeeze it for me :(

          Comments about Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion:

          My facial skin is fair, VERY oily, has large pores, adult acne (I am 25 as of 2014), and I live in both southeast Georgia and north Georgia, so I am battling humidity too (my face sweats really easily). In addition to my skin problems, I take a medication or two that can cause acne, as a side effect. My recent skin regimen that appears to prevent the oil slick: Dermalogica's clearing skin wash then apply Dermalogica's clearing mattifier and oil control lotion along with clindamycin (from the dermatologist). I then use Hourglass Veil primer, then Dr Brandt BB shine control, and then Tarte Smooth Operator powder. I wait 5-10 minutes between applying the Dermalogica and clindamycin (I use the clindamycin before applying the Dermalogica mattifier and oil control). Then apply the primer and wait 5-10 minutes before applying the Dr Brandt BB shine control cream. I've had success with both types of Tarte concealer, which I apply after the BB cream. Then, after applying Tarte blush and Tarte matte bronzer along with Urban Decay eye makeup and Smashbox eye primer (I feel Smashbox eye primer doesn't try my eyes out like Urban Decays but both will hold eyeshadow) and Smashbox brow tech (which is incredible and waterproof). I finish my makeup routine with Urban Decay's De Slick setting spray. I've also had success with Benefit's porefessional primer. This is my first bottle of Hourglass Veil, but according to the label, it has more beneficial ingredients for your skin than the porefessional. I used to use Murad anti-aging products and acne products especially the oil control lotion, but it was doing good to hold the oil back for 8 hours. However, I was using Tarte BB primer cream instead of the Dr Brandt. I haven't used Tarte BB with the Dermalogica or Murad with the Dr Brandt BB. After the success I've had with the Dermalogica and Dr Brandt duo, I'm hesitant to retry the Tarte BB and Murad. Note, I use Tretinoin gel at night and take oral doxycycline hyclate both from my dermatologist.

          Comments about Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion:

          I usually try to go budget end on everything. However, my extremely oily skin was impossible to deal with using low-end products. I've been using Dermalogica for about a year now, and I love it! Especially this product! It's the only thing I've found that truly controls oil all day without harshly drying. I won't use anything else.

          Comments about Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion:

          I have very large pores so my skin is extremely oily. I saw absolutely no difference in the amount of oil on my skin after 3 weeks of use. I realize given how oily my complexion is nothing will last all day, but I would expect to have a few hours of oil free. It went right back to the store.

          This product work great for controlling excess oil and is easy on my sensitive skin. However this product is lacking slightly in the overall moisturization of the skin but I will still be buying this again.

            living in the Caribbean it's hard to find a moisturizer that works with the hot weather. this is one of the best i've used. not heavy/does not feel like cream, mattifying but not drying. i'm now on my second bottle. bought the first one after it was recommended by my dermatologist last November..so it lasts a while despite its size. Quite pricey though.

              Comments about Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion:

              The easy to use bottle was the only good thing about this product. I have never used the Dermatologica brand before but decided to try it at the recommendation of an Ulta employee. The product made my already oily skin more oily throughout the day. It also made my skin feel sticky upon application and I'm not sure if it contained SPF because I could not find it on the bottle and the Ulta associate did not know either. I switched to Dermatologica Clean start mattifying moisturizer and I like it much better and it contains SPF (the smell is a little strong though). This is Dermatologica's last chance to live up to its brand.

                  A:

                  To help control excess oil, we recommend using Oil Control Lotion. Active Moist can be used to provide lightweight hydration, but it does not contain any ingredients to combat excess oil production.

                Do I use this with the Clearing Mattifier?

                  A:

                  These products should be layered. Clearing Mattifier is a targeted treatment that absorbs and slows down oil production. It is applied in the morning in a thin layer directly on to clean skin and then layered with Oil Control Lotion. Oil Control Lotion is a moisturizer that has microsponges in it to absorb oil while hydrating an oily skin and can be used morning and night. For excess oil it is important to use a clay based masque like Sebum Clearing Masque 2-3 times a week. We hope this helps!
