Several years ago Clinique discontinued the original Oil Control product and this looks to be an amazing replacement. Have been using for several weeks now and enjoy the "no-shine" results!
This review is COMPLETELY OPPOSITE to the rest of my Clinique reviews. I got the diagnose or whatever it's called, and I got skin type 3 - which is true. I received the recommendation of getting the Acne Solutions kit (which is truly amazing, I love it) and this moisturizer as a compliment to mattify my face and control the oiliness. I used it the first day it got here and it didn't work. At all. Well, it worked for the first 10 minutes or so. After that, my face was super shiny, heavy, greasy... all over the place. I never used it again. And I have it there... I'm waiting to give it away to anyone who likes it.
Instead of using this, I would recommend the Pore-Refining Solutions Stay Matte Hydrator, which is my favorite product and WORKS GREAT. Now that one's a true mattifier.
One of the ladies in a local store told me that maybe it didn't work for me because of my skin type. So, if you don't have to deal with too much oil production, this may work for you.
I was very disappointed with this product, but it's the one and only disappointment I've gotten from Clinique. I'm blown away with the rest of the products I have tried, and I have written reviews for all of them!

I have a very problematic forehead area, which would get very oily especially due to manual labor work that I perform. This product prevents oil from forming on my forehead even during hot temperatures, creating this magnifying effect as if my skin is completely moisturized yet without any trace of oil!

Very Good Moisturizer. My husband has been now using it less than a month a loves the way it dries into skin and does not get oily.

I bought this for my teenager son. He is acne skin and he hate fragrance. He likes this.

I'm super impressed by this product. Usually I'd feel oily by the afternoon with or without sunscreen, and it was always really annoying. This moisturizer works great by itself or underneath sunscreen. It moisturizes really well and then dries matte.

I bought this for my bf and he liked it.

I purchase this moisturizer for my 22 year old son who has naturally oily skin. He's super picky about what he uses on his face, and his skin has completely cleared up, and is in perfect condition since he began using Clinique oil control products. They are a must have!

It definitely takes away the moisture and shine and has a pleasant smell, but it does seem to make my skin more prone to breakouts.
Sergei N from Moscow
Has a very pleasant texture and significantly reduces shine for the whole day. My favorite!
Mickey from Mn
Easy to use. My teen willingly uses this as it gives him instant dry skin relief and doesn't cause breakouts or a greasy look

I use this product daily. It is very good at controlling my oily skin.

I got this for my husband. While he was using a moisturizer from a different brand, he used to come home in the evening with a greasy forehead. Since he started using this moisturizer, his face doesn't look greasy anymore. He loves it and will continue to use.

For years I've been looking for a moisturizer that does its job (moisturize) on my face & neck without making me look super shiny after just 1 hour ... and without creating acne. This has been the one for me! I've been using it daily for several weeks and it truly made a difference/

Bought for my husband and he had used this for more than one year.He said it felt clear and comfortable,queck assorted.

This is amazing moisturiser for men with oily skin. After struggling for years to find a good moisturiser for my skin type, really happy with this one...my friends use to joke I have oil factory in my face and now i can see the difference.

I've been wearing DAILY for a little over 2 years now. I simply cannot go without it. Growing up I always had issues with acne and constantly used abrasive chemicals to battle the issue, resulting in dry skin that only made matters worse. I started using moisturizer but quickly found that I had to have a moisturizer that was oil free. Many on the market, but I was attracted to the "mattifying" label and the Clinique brand. Started using this and never gone back to anything else. I put it on each morning after a shower and wash and my skin stays moisturized all day while also controlling the oil. Definitely recommend. I only wish the price was less, preferable under $20. If I can find another product that works as well for less money, I would switch.
George from Athens
That's a fantastic moisturizer for normal - mixed combination to oily skins.
It soothes , hydrates , rejuvenates and gives a mat finish look.
Those with extremely skin conditions are wrong to fault this product if they don't get the desired results, because like on very dry skins, one only product can't solve the hormones problem but a combination of products (oil Wash, lotion, serum etc).
But anyone willing to having a mat look and only themselves knowing that are wearing a moisturizer, it's the perfect solution.

Bought this item a couple times before in the past. It work just as described. It reduced the daily oil content on my skin, and I have really oily skin. All this without over drying my skin

Have been struggling with oily skin for so many years. Tried so many moisturisers before this Clinique product but all made me look like a tank full of oil after 30minutes. This one real works well on oily skins.

It says oil-controlling. The texture is like the DDML oil free version.

I am a woman with sensitive skin and an oily T-zone. Have used Clinique makeup and skincare for over 20 years. I wanted a similar but less expensive alternative to Clinique's Stay Matte Hydrator (in the Pore Refining Solutions line) and found this men's Mattifying Moisturizer to be virtually as effective, and you get nearly twice as much at a lower price. The only thing the men's moisturizer lacks when compared with the Stay Matte Hydrator is a pore-refining component. But if my skin is effectively matte-ified and my makeup goes on well over it (which it does -- a loose mineral powder applied with a brush), I can live without the pore-refining substances and get a better deal, too. It doesn't bother me at all that this is a "for men" product, especially as it has no fragrance. (For those that do care, just squeeze it all into a different, empty container, maybe?)
Jennifer from St Paul, MN
I love this moisturizer! I mix it with my foundation to make it go on lighter and look more natural. It's the only moisturizer I've found that doesn't make my face break out.
Kevin from Washington
I started using this after searching online for a product that I had not tried yet. I came across this. I started using it faithfully because I hated coming home and looking in the mirror and notice how shinny and unattractive my face was. I have very oily skin and have been plagued with horrible acne ever since I think the very second my body recognized I had hit puberty. I started noticing right off that my face didn't have a shine to it anymore. This seemed to last all day and I was extremely happy about that. Well a week to 10 days passed and I was shaving and noticed how firm my face had become.!! I couldn't believe it? A product that does exactly what it says it will do and then some. I have always liked Clinique's products and felt as though they were made with the same high quality Ingredients as the other big name products out there. The difference with Clinique is the price, they have always kept their prices reasonable.

I've used many high-end products including Aesop, Kiehl's, Malin + Goetz, and etc. I read about this product on some online editorial (maybe it was Mr. Porter — I forgot) and decided to try it.
It's not like anything I've used before. It definitely moisturizes but your skin stays silky smooth, not wet like most moisturizers. The smoothness stays throughout the day without having to reapply. I've used the combination of the oil control exfoliating tonic along with the scrub.
I used to break out a lot but not any more since I started using these. I realized that my skin was dry and produced excess sebum to compensate — my pores got clogged and led to breakouts. To make long story short, this is an excellent product worth trying once. I'm getting rid of Aesop. Dead serious.

I purchased the set (cleanser, toner and moisturizer) for my husband and it has done wonders for his skin! He is slick head bald with very oily skin, to where it looks like he shines his head, and this line has made it not be so greasy looking...only with a healthy glow! He had occasional breakouts before and they are minimal now. This has been a awesome item to add to his routine.
URR from Dallas, TX
I bought this product for my brother as a gift and he LOVES it! He had a ridiculously oily forehead but sensitive skin so nothing worked until he tried this. It is a complete change, you can no longer fry an egg on his forehead, and is usually pretty matte now.
