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

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.

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

                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!

                    Effective yet affordable. I use this mask with my steamer. It does a great job of opening my pores and the steam/cooling device closes them. I feel like my pores have shrunken.

                      It is well worth the price tag and a little goes a long way. I have been using it daily for 6 weeks and I have seen a tremendous difference in my skin tone and texture. It helps control my oily t-zone but doesn't dry me out. Love this product.

                        I bought this product to use as a mask for my recent breakout in my T-zone. Mask does do what it says, skin is matte and oil free after use. Pores feel tighter after and skin is left feeling a little warm and tingly. I apply my nighttime moisturizer and the heat goes away. Overall, happy with this product and will continue to use it. Seems to dry up my breakout and they look smaller.

                        This stuff is amazing! In the course of one month, using it 3+ times a mask, I have seen a significant decrease in the amount of oil on my skin (I also use Porefessional which works wonders for oil), smoother skin, and my skin tone has evened out as well. My acne is at an all time low, I mean I still get zits, but not nearly as much as I used to. A little goes a long way, which is great considering that its $25, but it gives you results!
