Most Helpful Positive Review Matte, UV protection,feel fresh- Swiss Army Lotion
The silky smooth feeling of this lotion has an immediate refreshing effect that makes one feel like a Ferrari getting a turtle wax treatment. The best part of this lotion was that it lasts for most of the day. My skin felt matte and non oily from 9am until 7pm when I came home. The added UV protection is a unique addition since I don't know of any other matting lotion that is appropriate for a man that also has UV protection. This does it all and I even use it after shaving with no problems. It soothes my nicks and unlike other lotions does not result in pimples or blemishes. Great product!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for sensitive skin!
I was given a sample of this to try on my oil, acne plus sensitive skin. During my first application in the morning, my skin didn't react and there were no problems whatsoever.
By the time I got back home from work and after I've taken my shower, my face was full of redness! I blame on this product as it made my face very itchy which caused major break outs. My face looked like that I've been suffering from rosacea. I will be sticking with my original Dermalogica routine. However, after five days of my discontinued use of this product, my skin is now calmed back to normal.

I really like that doesn't feel heavy on my skin! My skin feels different! I would totally buy this again!
Wouldn't call it "sheer" or "weightless"
Jess from Boulder, CO
First of all, for a daily sunscreen, the full size bottle is surprisingly small. This stuff feels pretty heavy on my skin (compared to water based sunscreen, which is what I normally use) and most days, leaves my skin oily looking (not matte at all). I won't buy this again.
makes skin oily
Mal from milton, vermont
this product makes amy already oily skin very oily.
New staple for me!
Erin B from Fishkill, NY
I love this product. I am currently trying to manage hormonal acne and this provides the sun protection I need without feeling heavy or oily. Very happy with this item!
The Results Were Great
Paty from Sarasota
The results of Dermalogica Products were great my face was oily and had bumps but now I have smooth skin and a non oily face. I recommend for everyone who has Oily face or rough skin and acne.
Feels quite dense
Rina from Delaware
Since mediBac Oil Control Lotion was discontinued I was looking for a lightweight replacement. Unfortunately this product feels dense on my combined skin. Maybe for sun protection it is ok, but not for all day long wear. Wish the lotion version can come back.
Baby B from Los Angeles, CA
A sunscreen I can use on my face that doesn't make me super shiny. So many of the sunscreens that advertise themselves as leaving a matte finish use mica and silica, and they give me miniature breakouts on my face. This product doesn't use those ingredients at all and does a much better job at keeping my T-Zone less shiny. I'm so happy with this product!
Love this stuff!
Nat from CA - California
I absolutely love this matte sunscreen! Its keeps my face from getting super oily and also prevents breakouts!💙 after switching to dermalogica I hardly ever wear make up!
My favorite daily facial sunscreen
Alyssa from Richmond, CA
This is by far my favorite facial sunscreen. I have been wearing it daily on my face, neck and chest for years. I like it a lot because I have oily skin, and this is one of the few sunscreens I can wear on my face and not have it be super greasy. Other sunscreens I need to use a face powder after I put them on to keep my face from getting too shiny. This one I can wear all day without makeup if I want to, and I don't have to worry about my face getting that gross greasy feeling that other sunscreens give.
Fantastic for Oily Skin
MonicaCO from Colorado
I love this SPF paired with Hourglass Mineral Veil primer. It's the perfect combination for oily skin gals.
I wouldn't buy this product again
Tee from Georgia
This product use to be amazing. I have extremely oily skin and it's just not cutting it anymore.
Mostly does it's job
Abby from Michigan
The only reason it does not get 5 stars is because my face will still get oily, therefore the "matte" portion is not super accurate for my skin personally
Melanie from fl
This was great gentle product! would totally recommend
Jake from New York
This was supposed to be the replacement for the FAR superior Oil Control Lotion that has inexplicably been discontinued. I found it greasy and more like sunscreen than a moisturizer. It is also terrible for darker complexions and men with facial hair as it left white streaks and white thick patches on my beard. I had to rub my face aggressively with a towel to get rid of the residue. I do not recommend.
Good for everyday use
Jess from Washington, DC
I like this product! Certain spfs make me break out really easily and this product does not cause me to break out.
Not too heavy, didn't break me out
Christine from Boston
A nice daytime moisturizer with spf. Doesn't sit on top of my skin or feel greasy. Didn't breakout my acne prone skin or clog my pores.
Love love LOVE
Nat from Kern County
I really like this moisturizer... I recently stopped taking birth control and let me tell you... hormonal gnarly painful cystic acne is REAL! I switched over to dermalogica and the results have been phenomenal! I know it can be pricey but a little goes a long way and if my skin continues like this I can keep going without make up again!!
Dr Z from Los Angeles
I breakout when I use sunblock, especially when reapplying throughout the day. I don't break out with oil free matte.
BritH from Orange Beach
I am oily in my T Zone area, so this product helps give my make up a matte look and protects my face from sun damage!
I would not buy this product again because it makes lumps.
Lidia from Edison, NJ
The product is good, but it makes lumps that's why I dont like it
Oily no more!!!!
Alex the oily from New York
I got this as part of a kit from my skin therapist and It truly does mattify the skin quite well and very quickly, in just days I was matte from the moment it went on qnd almost until I went to bed, but even though it doesnt last all day for me i still am way less oily in general. Great product!!!
Way too heavy for oily skin
MB from Illinois
I typically used the oil control lotion but it's no longer made. I figured this must be it's new equivalent. Not even close. It's so heavy and makes my SUPER oily skin even more oily, which I don't think was possible. I hope there is another lotion for oily skin on the way :(
Asdf from MI
Was hoping for a matte sunscreen that would help with oil control. My skin appears very oily after using and is not at all matte. Smells like sunscreen.
Mo from London
I had ran out of my Oil Control Lotion. This is the NEW Formula. I find it is very hard to apply. Greasy and uncomfortable when applying. Dos Not go on smoothly. Feels uncomfortable. May as well be sun lotion
does exactly what it says
Mari from Bay Area, CA
this product does exactly what it says, and nowhere does it claim to be a moisturizer, it's only an spf so don't expect it to replace your moisturizer. this works great on my oily acne prone skin and keeps matte throughout the day, unlike other spf's i've tried before. it also doesn't break me out which is great.
