    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.

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

              I live in south Florida and I have oily, combination, sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts. This product works well at keeping my face moisturized enough, smooth and with minimal shine. Of course SPF is very important,especially down here in FL. The lotion feels thick like sunblock but smells herbaceous and once it is rubbed into your skin, a little goes a long way, it dries. I put a powder foundation on next by Jane Iredale and I'm very happy with the results. I will be buying this product again.

                I was hesistant to spend $$ on this, but with Ulta's reaturn policy and my desperation to find a good lotion for my oily skin, I took a chance. I'm glad I did! I have the most insanely oily,acne prone skin. I have used Cetaphil for oily skin in the past but wanted something to help mattify my skin better. This is it! It is thicker than what I had in mind for a facial lotion, but I don't care because the product delivers what I need. It absorbs quickly and is a good primer before I apply my concealer and foundation. Leaves my skin feeling velvety. I stayed shine free all day, I was in shock. I didn't need to use my oil blotting papers at all, which I usually need to use by my lunch break at work. Because of how thick this product is, I think it will last a good while with daily use, so I don't feel so bad dishing out the $$ for it. Oh,the spf is an awseome addition to it as well, since I'm a red head living where the sun always shines.

                • For T-zone

                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.

                      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.

                      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.
