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

    I was so skeptical of buying this because my combo skin either gets super dry or super oily with any product like this. But, it sucked up the oil in my T zone and left my whole face with an even, moisturized feel.

              I have never actually purchased moisturizer. I am always getting samples of moisturizer and every kit you buy comes with a moisturizer. The first time I tried this, it came with the kit. I have repurchased it twice now. It really does "mattify". I will say, it's a little bit on the thick side, so I add a drop of tea tree oil to it, and it's the perfect consistency.

              A Must for Oily Skin

              By raylynn

              from pennsylvania

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

              As a sufferer of relentless oily skin who has tried every product and always been let down, this one is the best out there! It actually helps you stay matte for a lot longer than I would be without it, and you can use it on normal/dry areas and it is not over drying. I put it on my whole face after washing in the morning and before starting my makeup. It never caused me any redness, irritation, or breakouts as so many do. It's pricey I guess but hey it just the job! And its a small bottle (under 3 oz) but lasts me months when applying every day, so not a bad deal at all. I would recommend this to anyone with oily and/or very acne prone skin.

                I use this every morning and it keeps me shine-free all day.
                This item is so great because with keeping my oil production @ bay, I break-out way less. This product is the first product that I have used that did what it said and helped make my terrible acne, oil, black head skin noticeably better! will NEVER use anything else.

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

                  This is by far the best oil-control moisturizer I have ever tried because it ACTUALLY does what it says!

                  I always read reviews where everyone says they have "very oily skin" and a certain product lets them forgo blotting all day. For me, those products NEVER work like that. When I say I have super oily skin, I mean SUPER oily. As in, I am an oil slick two hours after applying mattifying EVERYTHING and need to blot about four times during the work day.

                  However, I'm feeling like this Murad Mattifier is my holy grail!!! I've had it for a week now and it's been extremely humid, yet my blotting has now been reduced to one time a day!!!

                  This product seriously moisturizes skin, but leaves your skin still feeling light and not greasy at all. BUY THIS.

                      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.

                      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.
