Most Helpful Positive Review Great for ache prone sensitive skin!!
I TOTALLY disagree with the other review on this product, it works really well with keeping your face from getting oily and shiny. I wash my face with Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel first and then use this moisturizer and let me tell you after a week there is a big difference. I have rosacea and very sensitive skin and this stuff is so gentle and has improved my skin in a week of using it in the morning and at night after first washing my face with the purifying gel.
Most Helpful Critical Review Face still oily
I've known LaRoche Posay for awhile & was hoping this was effective in dealing with my oily / combination skin. But, my face got oily after a few hours of using. Returning it & not buying it again. Seems the only thing that works for me is oil control moisturizer by Mario Badescu.

This moisturizer does just what it says. I bought it from the recommendation list after doing the skincare regimen finder. I have combination skin, so I wouldn't use this all over my face - but it surely mattifies! I am not sure about the moisturizing aspect (perhaps it's great if you don't suffer from dryness!); but on oily skin it works like a charm.
Great moisturizer for oily skin
KcBear from Memphis, TN
Is absolutely amazing. Goes on smooth and dries non-greasy.
LOVE THIS SKIN CARE LINE!!!
Stephanie Jae from Detroit MI
This moisturizer is PERFECT for my skin!!! I have oily skin and have struggled with underground pimples. Leaves my skin beautifully moisturized with a bit of a mat finish but skin still looks healthy! Underground pimples gone. Use in conjunction with Effeclar Toner and a retinol product. So happy to finally find something that works!
Magic in a bottle.
Mady Cabrera from New York, NY
I completely love it!!!!
This can make a big difference in your skincare routine.
Holy grail for oily skin
lola17 from Connecticut
Ok I literally have the most oily skin ever. I've tried every mattifying whatever there is. This is by far the best thing I've ever tried. My skin just looks normal and not super shiny on my t-zone. Literally so worth it and better than any high end stuff. If you have oily skin, you won't anymore with this!!!
Nicki from Illinois
It's ok. I have oily skin that is also dry. So i need something with lots of moisture and this isnt it. Im thinking maybe it will be great for summer. And i was less oily, but it certainly isnt going to make you matte.
Helps oily skin
Des from Whittier
I haven't found moisturizer as good as this one for my oily skin. Applying to the face twice a day works a lot better than once a day.
Pills and shines
Jo from Kc
I've been searching for a matte moisturizer for a while now. I read mixed reviews but decided to give it a shot. Unfortunately, I agree with other reviewers. It didn't control oil and the pilling was awful. It was barely on for an hour and it was rubbing/rolling off my face any time I barely touched my skin. It would've been even worse if I had tried to put makeup over it. Thank goodness for Ulta's awesome return policy.

I hate how small the packing is for the high prize but this moisturizer keeps my face mat all day. Also, it is so smooth and applies nicely. It is heaven sent so the price is actually worth it!
Best Moisturizer I've Ever User
Mimi from Louisville
I LOVE this matte moisturizer. It has a wonderful light powdery texture and blends into my face well. It does a great job at hiding my pores and rougher skin texture with consistent use. It does not break my skin out. The only downside is that this one bottle only lasts me a month and it's fairly expensive.
I really like this
colleens32 from undisclosed
I really like this moisturizer and how soft it makes my skin feel. It isnt oily or watery, it goes on nicely and doesnt irritate my sensitive skin or clog my pores! The only thing is I wish they would seek it in a larger size!
I like that it doesn't feel greasy on my face!!!!!

I use this product twice a day. Once in the morning after washing my face and applying serum. I also use it right before bed after washing my face

The moisturizer is good but the package is super small

I love the texture and how soft it makes my skin feel.
Mila from Philadelphia
I love it! It's life changing cream for me and for my oil skin.
Only moisturizer I use
Tara from Las Vegas, NV
This moisturizer doesn't clog or break me out, it absorbs dry, you only need a little. It's expensive but it is the only moisturizer I've ever been able to use consistently with no issues.
Not work for me.
Judy Only from Lakewood，CA
The product pills up and hard to clean. Too bad not work for me.
Love This Stuff!
Mimi from Louisville
I've been using this stuff for a month now and I love it. My skin is extremely oily. I am acne-prone and also very sensitive to lots of things. This moisturizer makes my skin feel soft, there is no scent, it doesn't break me out, it keeps my skin from getting too oily. I love everything about it.
anonymous from Pennsylvania
I like the consistency of this moisturizer. The cons for me are how it smells AFTER it's on my face and I have not noticed any difference in my pores or the greasy shine of my face. I've been using it one month.
anonymous from Ohio
My face doesn't shine while it moisturizes my face.
Does what it says but also has a downside
Ariana from NC
I really wanted to love this moisturizer, on one hand it does what it claims, it cuts down on my shininess and does minimize my pores a bit. BUT on the other hand it also pills really badly on my skin 😩 this could just be a problem specific to me as I apply this over top a hyaluronic acid serum and a thin layer of differing gel but it completely ruins the pros of the product for me. It's impossible to apply a clean layer of make up when your moisturizer is pulling all over the place. Bottom line is I wouldn't repurchase this again but it could work for some people!
Non-greasy primer-like feel
Wellina from undisclosed
Somewhat small product amount. Goes on smooth with a definite dimethicone/primer-like feel which is not a bad thing. No problems with greasy or sticky feel. Did not cause me any breakouts which is the biggest plus in my book!
I would buy this again
Denise from FL
My 22-year-old daughter loves this moisturizer. It moisturizes without any negative affects - she has acne.
