      Comments about Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier:

      It made my skin feel greasy, it did NOT improve breakouts, and if not applied JUST right, it will pill, and you'll end up with little balls of product on your skin, which will in turn make it impossible to apply any other skin care product or make up. Thumbs down. The price range is just ridiculous, too. I spent a LOT of money on several Dermalogica products and I'm furious I wasted so much for such ineffective products.

      I have a really oily t-zone and this is the ONLY thing that has ever controlled my oil. I am absoutely amazed. I have tried every single product out there. I love this. My makeup still looks perfect at the end of the day because of this product. And a bonus it controls my minor breakouts.

          Comments about Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier:

          WOW this stuff really works! BUT you have to use it along with the oil control lotion. Yes it is expensive, but you only need to use it in the morning and you only need to apply a small amount.

          I have tried a million products for oily skin and none were effective at all. I used to have to use facial wipes to wash my face and re-apply makeup mid day because my skin was extremely oily. But with this cream I just use it once in the morning and my face is not oily at all!

          Give it a try! If it doesn't work for you all you need to do is return it for a full refund. You have nothing to lose!

          This stuff is magic. If you're looking for a primer, it's not bad. If you're looking for a mattifying product, it's great, although I still need powder for real oil control. If you're looking for a clever way to control your breakouts under your makeup, this is it. It goes on smooth and will clear your skin. I've also had excellent results using this on my chest or neck, those areas where I get tiny annoying whiteheads. This is a skin friendly product that makes a real difference to me!

                    This is the best thing I ever could have purchased for my oily skin. I put this on before my face primer (an extra step, yes, but worth it) to keep my oils from breaking down my makeup.

                    I pair this with an oil absorbing primer and I am oil free for 8+ hours. I sometimes don't even use a primer, just use this under my foundation and it smooths my skin all while keeping me from using three blotting papers after lunch.

                        Hello Sandy,

                        Clearing Mattifier is perfect for absorbing excess oil and regulating oil production. Apply a thin layer the clean skin in oily areas. The size of a grain of rice is enough for the T Zone. For very oily skin follow with Oil Control Lotion or Oil Free Matte SPF30. You may reapply Clearing Mattifier by dabbing a small amount over moisturizer and make up.

                        Hello Ebie,

                        Thank you for your inquiry. Clearing Mattifier can be used with Oil Control Lotion to help reduce oil production and keep skin shine free. Apply a very thin layer to skin in oily areas under Oil Control Lotion. You may also touch up with a small amout to reduce shin during the day.

                        Hello Cecilia,

                        Clearing Mattifier does not have sunscreen in it. We recommend using Oil Free Matte SPF 30 as daily moisturizer with sunscreen for oily skin. You can lay these two products for very oily skin. Clearing Mattifier would be applied in a very thin layer under Oil Free Matte SPF30 and can be used for touch ups during the day.

                    • Q:

                      I have combination skin and am primarily interested in controlling the oil in my t-zone, specifically my nose. My question is if this product could be concentrated on my nose or t-zone only, underneath my primer and above my moisturizer. Or is there a better product I can use because my nose is the worst.

                        Hello Michelle,
                        Clearing Mattifier is the best product for this purpose. For best results apply Clearing Mattifier after toner to clean skin under moisturizer. It can be applied through out the day as well to spot treat shine. Clearing Mattifier will not only help to minimize shine, but reduce pore size as well. Use daily for best results.

                        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!
