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

LOVE this product! I have very oily skin and always need to touch up my makeup at least 3 hour into wearing it. I tried MAC oil control lotion and it worked somewhat, but I decided to try this after hearing good things and I'm so glad I did!!! I use it before putting on my foundation and I dont have to touch up ONCE! My makeup lasted literally all day without being oily. Love this stuff! I will definitely buy again

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

    a lot of product does not go along way. It is great if you have money to spend. There is no scent to this product. Although this is the Acne line, I do not why this product is supersaturated in Silicone. Murad always has strong product which is why there products do the trick, I was not wowed with this product I returned it due to the Silicone.

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

        I have a super oily T-zone and have tried dozens of things to control it. This is the only one I will use from now on because it actually does work all day long. It took a little getting used to at first because it has a slightly "minty" smell...it reminded me of slathering toothpaste on my face. But it does what it's supposed to, so I don't care. Worth every penny!

            I have normal/oily tzone, and with this product I simply love it. I use it everyday and ever since my tzone is less oily and my makeup stays longer. I used to be a grease ball at the end of the day but not anymore. I highly recommend this product.

              I've always had oily skin and tried many products, but this one was amazing since the first day I used it! I've been using this for over a year. It really does absorb oil and makes my makeup looking amazing throughout the day.

                    A:

                    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.

                  Does this product has salicylic acid? I want to know because it breaks me out. And does this comes in a sample size?

                    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.

                    A:

                    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.
