Made me breakout...

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

    This worked SO well for about two weeks. I have a super oily t-zone, and this kept the oil under control. After about two weeks, I started getting large, PAINFUL breakouts all along my t-zone. I stopped using this about a week ago, and my face has cleared up. Now I need to find a different product. :/

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

      I started taking a medication that makes my skin really oily & it was causing severe acne. My dr put me on a prescription ointment and I noticed no change. I stopped using the ointment. I had ran out of my usual moisturizer (thank God!)and started moisturizing w/ a sample of this product. My face cleared up within two weeks because the moisturizer did such a fantastic job of absorbing the oil. I just purchased a bottle today. I would say it is well worth the money. You don't have to apply much & the tiny little sample lasted me at least a month. I was so sad that every product I was using seemed to increase my acne/oil production. So grateful that I found a product that does what it says it's going to.

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

      I have fairly oily skin, particularly in my T-zone, and I was hoping this product would help me combat that. I got the sample size a while back when I purchased my foundation, and I still have it and continue to use it, but from the looks of it, I wont be purchasing the full $40 size! I put this on my nose before I put on my makeup every morning, and my nose still becomes an oil slick within an hour or so. BUT The product claims to control oil for up to 8 hours! My T-zone and nose are basically the same oily consistency as when I put this product on or not. I love the murad line of products but this one just isn't cutting it for me.

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

      I've tried so many primers to keep my foundation from running and fading in the hot humid Florida weather and I've finally found it! Works great under liquid foundations and BB creams and does not cause break outs. Just apply a thin layer to your t-zone or all over, like I do, and apply your makeup as usual. Smell is not optimal but fades quickly. I use Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation full coverage (to minimize acne scarring) and my makeup looks flawless and lasts all day! I'm thrilled with how well it works! If you have oily skin- give this product a try!

      Best mistake I've ever made

      • Moisturizes
      • Non-Greasy
      • Oil control

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Daily Use
        • Oil control

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

        This is probably the best mistake I've ever made - I accidentally picked up this lotion when I meant to restock my murad Acne Complex Skin Perfecting Lotion. I always have very oily skin which nothing would even help - my face greases out almost instantly a couple hours after I wash my face. Although eventually I got the breakouts under control, but the oily issue is still the main cause for my clogged pores! I've tried sooooo many things, from variety of skincare products from drug store brands to department store brands, and even physical treatments such as chemical peels, IPL treatments (those were effective but they are so costly and only last temporarily!)

        Anyways, when I first realized that I picked up the wrong lotion, I was going to keep it unpacked so I could exchange it - but then I read the reviews online, and decided to give it a shot - OMG! It really WOWED me! It feels a little thick at first compares to the complex skin perfecting lotion, but a little goes a long way - I used a pea size and it doesn't make my face feeling dry at all, not to mention how much oil controlling it does! I am very pleased and impressed by this lotion!

        I really love this product! Sometimes it can over dry or irritate my skin, but usually it does fine. My skin is dry when I don't lotion but can get too greasy with many lotions. This is the perfect compromise!! Highly recommend.

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

        I have very oily skin, to the point where I would have to blot every hour. I saw this product on youtube and wanted to try it out for myself and it was AMAZING!!! Nothing else works, not even Mary Kay, Dermalogica, or drug store products.
        I just apply this under my face primer and it lasts my all day. I still get a little only, meaning I only have to blot maybe every 3-4 hours compare to the usual 1. This is a HOLY GRAIL product for me.

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

          I absolutely love this product. I've always battled oily skin and am constantly having to blot the excessive oil on my forehead, nose, and chin. I recently used the proactiv version of this and after about 6 hours, I'm blotting. With Murad I have yet to have that issue. I put this on after the T zone pore serum and it works amazingly. Ive also used it right after the cleanser and it still works, but makes my skin feel a little tighter. All in all this is a great product and I will keep using it.

              I have always used Dermalogica products but unfortunately even Dermalogica doesn't make a moisturizer this good! It provides an all day matte which is exactly what I need during my long work days! I can now say I love Murad as well!

                  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.
