          Comments about Philosophy Total Matteness Pore-Minimizing & Mattifying Cleanser + Mask:

          I have very oily skin and love almost anything that is a matte finish. After the first time I used this just as a cleanser, my skin felt so soft and no more shine. Perfect for oily skin, I have not used it as a mask yet, but plan to do so!

          It's great as a on e a week wash but was too harsh as a mask. If you have even mildly sensitive skin, this isn't the best choice for you. It definitely does what it says....dries!!

          this product Completely dries out my skin. I asked the Ulta rep for something for oily skin to help with pores and blackheads. but the product as soon as I use it makes my skin feel dry and flaky. it did help some with the pores but the blackheads go no where no matter how much I use. Expensive useless product.

                Did not work as well as much cheaper products like Neutrogena for oily skin. Not worth the extra money.

                    Comments about Philosophy Total Matteness Pore-Minimizing & Mattifying Cleanser + Mask:

                    I've yet to find a Philosophy product that I don't like. I use this mask about once a week (or as a wash as needed if my skin is feeling particularly oily or rough). It acts as a gentle exfoliate and sucks up oil. My pores really do look smaller. The first time I used it, a couple of coworkers actually complimented my skin the next day.

                        The product is described to be mattifying and absorbs oil and minimize shine and it couldn't be anymore false! After applying this product, my face was oily within an hour after use. Now I know with the summertime and high humidity levels, my face will be oily no matter what, but I at least expected this cleanser to mattify my skin at least for several hours. Truly disappointed and it's not worth the money. Drug store cleansers work better than this.

                          I use this product every night as a face wash, then as a mask 2-3 times a week. I have very oily skin and large pores, a week after using this product I saw a total change in my skin. So soft, less oily & my pores are visibly smaller. I wish I would've tried this product sooner!
