      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.

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

        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.

        • Enlarged Pores
        • 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.

              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.

                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.

                    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.
