    This product does exactly what it says it's going to do.

    I was initially hesitant to purchase this product b/c of the price. However, if you have oily skin like I do, this might be your lifesaver. Since a little goes a long way, it's totally worth the price. The results are immediate and over time, it really changed my skin for the better. My make up sits much nicer (I still use another primer as well still). At the end of the day, I do not look like a grease-ball with huge pores with make up jammed in them.

        I tried this per an associate's recommendation and it is by far the best product I have ever used. All day oil-free!! My dermatologist commented on how great my skin looks since my last visit.

        Comments about Philosophy Total Matteness Oil-Free Mattifying Pore Eraser:

        This product absorbed into my skin quickly and left it feeling silky smooth. I gave it a shot for two weeks in hopes of controlling my oil, and man am I oily! Unfortunately I felt as if this stuff made me even more oily!! I was blotting about an hour into applying. As a plus, it smoothed my large pores and made them (almost) disappear! So in terms of oil control, this product was not for me. As far as smoothing my skin and minimizing my pores, it did a wonderful job. I was so on the fence about returning it because I loved the way my skin looked for the first hour-ish, but I was strictly looking for oil control.

          I find this helps my makeup last longer. I have very oily skin and prior to using Total Matteness, my makeup looked like it was sliding off my face by lunch time.

              I went to store to purchase make-up and left with this. I am a minimalist when it comes to make-up; I wear make-up to look more natural, not made up. I was told a good face primer is the foundation to a good make-up routine. Which is odd, since this is not a face primer. Long story short, I used the product for a week. The results were dry, tight, flaky, irritated skin. If it didn't cost so much, I would be over this!!

                Comments about Philosophy Total Matteness Oil-Free Mattifying Pore Eraser:

                I've been using this for a couple weeks now and it does a really good job at handling my shiny nose. It keeps the shine down through most of the work day. I notice a little of shine toward the end of the work day. I usually need to powder after work before going out, which is minimal compared to what I dealt with before.

                This product was ok for me, I will not repurchase because it didn't really wow me. For the price I could of found a better product. I used this daily and used the bottle all up in two months, so you don't really get a lot for your money.

                    If you're looking for an ultra matte face, this isn't going to give it to you. But it will give you a satin natural finish type skin, which is why this product is so glorious.

                    I have extreme combo-oily skin & this is the only product I've found that mattefies my oil puddle of a t-zone but doesn't dry it out. This product smoothed out the large pores on my nose & the texture in the problem areas of my skin & what I LOVE MOST about this product is that after you use it, your skin still looks like skin. This product doesn't dry your skin out to the point where it freaks out and over produces oil to compensate for the dryness. I'm not a fan of a matte face because it looks aged. But this changes skin to the bright, smooth, flawless finish I've been searching long for.

                      This product is great! It does exactly what is says it will do. I have very oily skin and huge pores. I noticed a huge difference the first night I used it. Now, after using it for about three weeks I'll never use anything else. I use it in conjunction with philosophy's microdelivery exfoliating wash. Both of these I use three times a week. I'm a bubget shopper so the price of this held me back from buying it for a while but It takes so little to apply that it will last so long. Like they say, you get what you pay for. I highly recommend this to those with with oily skin and large pores.

                        Comments about Philosophy Total Matteness Oil-Free Mattifying Pore Eraser:

                        This is an excellent product, I was very hesitant because of the price but it is worth it! It controls my oils, I do not not notice a pore reduction but I don't have an issue with my pores. I swear I don't even need a primer, people that are saying it doesn't work might not being applying it correctly.
                        The lady at the store told me to use the dopper to apply a drop to 2 or 3 finger tips and pat onto face until it starts to dry then gently rub in. I mostly pat till dry, maybe that's what makes the difference.

                        I feel like my foundations stay on much better with this product! Will reprchase. I've used this for about 3 weeks hand have hardly made a dent in the product.
