    Comments about Murad Acne Complex Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++:

    I have never actually purchased moisturizer. I am always getting samples of moisturizer and every kit you buy comes with a moisturizer. The first time I tried this, it came with the kit. I have repurchased it twice now. It really does "mattify". I will say, it's a little bit on the thick side, so I add a drop of tea tree oil to it, and it's the perfect consistency.

    A Must for Oily Skin

    By raylynn

    from pennsylvania

    Comments about Murad Acne Complex Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++:

    As a sufferer of relentless oily skin who has tried every product and always been let down, this one is the best out there! It actually helps you stay matte for a lot longer than I would be without it, and you can use it on normal/dry areas and it is not over drying. I put it on my whole face after washing in the morning and before starting my makeup. It never caused me any redness, irritation, or breakouts as so many do. It's pricey I guess but hey it just the job! And its a small bottle (under 3 oz) but lasts me months when applying every day, so not a bad deal at all. I would recommend this to anyone with oily and/or very acne prone skin.

      I use this every morning and it keeps me shine-free all day.
      This item is so great because with keeping my oil production @ bay, I break-out way less. This product is the first product that I have used that did what it said and helped make my terrible acne, oil, black head skin noticeably better! will NEVER use anything else.

      ACTUALLY Controls Oil!!!

        Comments about Murad Acne Complex Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++:

        This is by far the best oil-control moisturizer I have ever tried because it ACTUALLY does what it says!

        I always read reviews where everyone says they have "very oily skin" and a certain product lets them forgo blotting all day. For me, those products NEVER work like that. When I say I have super oily skin, I mean SUPER oily. As in, I am an oil slick two hours after applying mattifying EVERYTHING and need to blot about four times during the work day.

        However, I'm feeling like this Murad Mattifier is my holy grail!!! I've had it for a week now and it's been extremely humid, yet my blotting has now been reduced to one time a day!!!

        This product seriously moisturizes skin, but leaves your skin still feeling light and not greasy at all. BUY THIS.

          Comments about Murad Acne Complex Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++:

          I was looking for a good primer that would work on my very oily skin when I was recommended to use this product. I've been using it as a moisturizer every morning for about a week and I am so impressed! This product keeps my face from looking like an oily mess, but without over drying my face. I've actually stopped using my primer since I got this product.

          I encourage anyone that has oily skin to try this product! Not only does it keep my face control oil, but it protects my skin from the sun and from blemishes. This is the PERFECT product for the summer!

          cons- it kind of has a tiny hint of the sunscreen smell to it, but you can't smell it once you apply it to your face!

            LOVE this product! I have very oily skin and always need to touch up my makeup at least 3 hour into wearing it. I tried MAC oil control lotion and it worked somewhat, but I decided to try this after hearing good things and I'm so glad I did!!! I use it before putting on my foundation and I dont have to touch up ONCE! My makeup lasted literally all day without being oily. Love this stuff! I will definitely buy again

              a lot of product does not go along way. It is great if you have money to spend. There is no scent to this product. Although this is the Acne line, I do not why this product is supersaturated in Silicone. Murad always has strong product which is why there products do the trick, I was not wowed with this product I returned it due to the Silicone.

                    A:

                    In a clinical study, Murad Acne Complex Oil-Control Mattifier was proven to control oil for up to 8 hours! It is an ideal choice for those with oily skin to help balance oil production and minimize shine. It provides lightweight hydration, so use of an additional moisturizer is optional. Its silky texture will also help to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores.

                    Yes, this product is step 3 - hydrate/protect - in your regimen, so it would be used as a moisturizer and sunscreen. Yes, apply it before your primer for best results.

                    This product serves as a mattifying treatment, lightweight hydrator, and sunscreen in one. If you desire sun protection beyond SPF 15, you can certainly layer a higher SPF product over this product.
