How to Use
Rated 4.39 out of 5 stars
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.
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.

In the description it clearly says formulated without fragrance. However fragrance is listed as an ingredient on the box. Super irritating to my skin.

Got this about a month ago, I like the product but compared to all the other products I purchased it was surprisingly small and the bottle didn't feel very full either.

Love the way my skin feels after putting this on! Not greasy at all.

This is the one!!! My face was becoming more oily and shiny to a point that was getting out of control. I live in Florida so humidity and hot weather so add that to my problem. I found this product and combined with effaclar Micellar Water for Oily Skin is a game changer. I had used for 1 day so far and I can feel a LOT difference and last it the whole day.

I started using this product like 2 months ago, and it is a serious game changer. I was using the Effaclar line already, the face wash, the duo spot treatment, and sometimes the toner which dried my face out. I would always try lotions and it would break me out even more. Then I started using this treatment. I went from having like 4 new breakouts a day down to one or none. It's also nice because it doesn't give you that greasy film afterwards. I usually don't write reviews ever, but this is one product that I would suggest to ANYONE. It helps break outs, it helps moisturize your skin, especially if you have combination skin like I do. And it leaves you feeling refreshed in the morning. I have been feeling so much more confident in my skin and I love it. And because it's not greasy, I can finally put lotion on in the morning. Every other lotion would make me look like I was greasy or like I was sweating, but this one absorbs right in and skin looks amazing. The only issue I have with it, is the fact that it's so small. It runs out really quick, and I usually hate having to spend money, but for this it's so worth it for me.

This is the only mattifying moisturizer that really works!! And not only that it's effect last almost 7 hours. I just love it!! I found it and I am sticking to it.
Nicole from Maryland
I like how lightweight this translucent cream is, and it does mattify initially, but unfortunately I am still oily about 2 hours later.

This isn't my #1 product that I've ever used, but it does do the job. Good packaging and works for now.
Jayla from CA
I used this only on my nose, it is really helpful~ less oil and less blackheads!
YYMP from New York City
Great moisturizer, absorbs fast and improves texture. Perfect for summer. The bottle is a little small.

I'm a big fan of La Roche Posay's Duo+ cream but with my skin being more oily combination these days and my breakouts being less frequent I decided to focus my day cream more on oil control, so picked this up as also from the Effaclar range.
I'm amazed at the difference, normally after a few hours my face feels shiny again but since using this my face is matte all day. Not intensively moisturising but for me for my day cream that's exactly what I need. Sits perfectly under SPF and make-up.La Roche-Posay Effaclar MAT Mattifying Moisturizer
Gdrc from Yuma
My face is very oily and acne prone skin so I was looking for an oil free moisturizer. However, this did not hydrate my skin at all. Has a silicone feeling
MaryA from Fresno California
It helps but lasts about half day. Will need tissue blotting at noon to keep the shine down.
Sandy C from CLE OH
I love this product it keeps my skin hydrated without looking oily
AHuggard from undisclosed
I have slightly oily skin but I found that this lotion actually makes my skin feel too dry and tight
Crgamble from New York
My dermatology friend recommended I start using this. I love it.
Lex from Portland, OR
I understand charging over $30 for moisturizer. Charging that much for an ounce? It's clear they're not in the skincare business, they're in the moneymaking business.
Lynn78 from Milwaukee, Wi
I really like this product. I do wish it came in a bigger container.
Prezime from NC
Works well for oily skin. Light weight and absorbs quickly
annika from spokane, wa
I was disappointed that I shelled out the money for this only to find that it made my face even oilier than other products i've tried.
Anesu from Dallas, TX
The mattifying effect only lasted for a few hours. After the few hours, my face became more oily than when I wasn't using this product.
rickey from Washington
I'm 16 and my mom told me this was a good brand to use, it did what it said it would it made my skin very mat but made me break out within a few days. I tried using it again a few weeks later but the same thing happened, so overall it did what it described but made me breakout, it might work for someone else though.
Avery from Muskego, WI
Love it!! Especially for my oily skin. Really makes pores smaller. Wish it wasn't so expensive.
Josh from Auburn, Wa
This made my face more oily and shine. But I would use my review as a reference. I've used every product I can find and nothing works. This is the first one to make it alot worse though
Vingt from California
Mattifying. But it hurts my eyes if I rub too much on my face.
