About Me Beauty Expert

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

I use this in my T-zone under makeup. I got a sample of this and it quickly became something I couldn't do without. I have tried a lot of products to help my large pores and oily T-zone. This has been the single most effective thing I have ever used.

It made a visible difference by reducing the number of blackheads that form on my nose and chin. After a month of use, my pores looked noticeably smaller. It controls my oil and makes my foundation last longer. I have purchased the full size. Although it was expensive, it has lasted over a year. A little goes a long way.

I am in my mid 30s and have combination skin. This is not hydrating enough to use all over my face, but it is fantastic for my oily breakout prone T-zone. The texture is very paste like which is strange and it takes a little effort to apply. However, it really works and has multiple bennifits so I use it daily and highly reccomend it.

      I have tried prescription acne products and other over the counter products. I have also done expensive skin peels and have not had the results like I have had with this product line! I would absolutely recommend!

        • Daily Use

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

        I started using this over a month ago. At the time I had pregnancy hormones driving my oil production through the roof. This didn't stop me from getting oily, but it reduced the shine longer than if I used regular moisturizer. I've had the baby and now that my skin is less oily it stays matte longer. The lotion itself is very thick and heavy, so you'll probably go through it faster than a light weight one. Also, my skin does not feel any more moisturized after using it, so I have to be careful not to use any masks or anything that will dry it out. I've tried other mattifying lotions and they dried my skin out so that it increased oil production. This one does not do that.

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

          I should start off by saying that I work in a green house at a hardware store, in the humid, Florida summer heat. I use this everyday under just a bit of foundation and my skin looks amazing all day! I got this as a free sample when I ordered something else and fell in love. The only downside to this product is the price for a full-sized bottle.

                  I have oily skin and by 11am I look like a hot mess, so this moisturizer was my salvation! I no longer have to worry about blotting my face all day long because it keeps the oil under control. I am very happy with this product!

                    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. :/

                        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.
