        I have very sensitive, oily, acne prone skin. Typically I have to blot my skin several times per day to take down the shine. No more blotting! Also my foundation seems to stay put so much better and no breakouts have been caused. Will definitely continue to use!

          I use this product before my make up and it doesn't add any shine or greasiness throughout the day. I have oily/ combination skin especially t zone area. I find that using this product really helps control the oil in these areas as well moisture the rest of my face. Love that it has SPF in it as well.

                  I think this product is amazing if you have troubled skin. But I bought this for the soul purpose for using under my foundation as a primer. Was a recommendation from Young, wild and polished on youtube to her viewers. I didn't feel like it was worth me keeping for that purpose and not keeping my skin matte.

                    this does make me less oily, thus extend the wear of my foundation better than other products. it's not controlling my oily for a twelve- fourteen hour day, but it does for probably six to seven hours.

                          A:

                          You can use all of these items. It really depends on your main concerns. Typically we would say use 1 in the morning and 1 at night. For you, you can mix and match depending on what your skin is doing and how it feels. For example some days I use a few of the acne products and then some of the products from Age Reform. Other days I use some Environmental Shield products with the Age Reform.
                          As for the Oil-Control Mattifer - this is a very light moisturizer that will give the skin a matte finish. This woul dbe your last daytime step before apply any color makeup.

                          In a clinical study, Murad Acne Complex Oil-Control Mattifier was proven to control oil for up to 8 hours! It is an ideal choice for those with oily skin to help balance oil production and minimize shine. It provides lightweight hydration, so use of an additional moisturizer is optional. Its silky texture will also help to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores.
