Rated 4.32 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.

4 stars for the size of the bottle. A bit pricy for a small bottle but I do like the product itself. It applies on the skin very smoothly.

It has only been a few days of using this product. I have very oily and very sensitive skin and this product has worked well for me. The oiliness that typically surfaces a few hours after washing has not appeared. It leaves my skin feeling soft and has not given me any breakouts. I'm still waiting to see a difference in pore size but overall a very good moisturizer.

It feels good when you apply it but you need to use a big amount of the product to cover the face and the container is small for the price.

I have struggled with incredibly oily skin and acne my entire adult life (I'm 37). This stuff is Heaven sent! Before finding this product only a few weeks ago, my face was oily no matter what I did or what I used, even with the help of dermatologists. It would be oily within a half hour and I'd be total oil all day. Like ALOT of oil. Constant oil absorbing pads and compacts. I somehow stumbled upon this gem and I can't believe how much this works! I no longer need to freshen my face up at all during the day, up until I wash at night. No more oil absorbing pads or compacts! My make up stays in place and no oil!! I LOVE this! My only wish is the bottle is a bit larger for the same price. It's very expensive for the size you're getting, which is why I deducted one star.

Made my skin extremely oily. I tried using the smallest amount possible to see if i was using too much and i wasn't. Tried it for 3 days to see if it would change, it didnt. I'm having to wipe the excess oil off my face every hour and my skin isn't ever that bad. I love their other products, this one just isn't for me.
Potay from LA
It's sad that this product is only available for 50ml. Too little. And I do not see any improvement for my skin for using this moisturizer. Maybe because this is my first time using moisturizer. As I have oily skin I am not a fan of moisturizers. Not bad though.
Maria Rosado from New Jersey
Good morning, so far, I haven't had any issues with the moisturizer. I do have strong oily skin, but so far, I feel good after applying the moisturizer, I would recommend to drink allot of water, stay hydrated, wash your face before going to bed, and basic facials are good, try to get a facial once a month or every two months. But I am happy with the product.

It really helps my oily skin feel better and less greasy.

Can I use it with vitamin c in the morning? Still this is my second day but it's kind of expensive compared to the size

I love this product. I use it all year long. It leaves my skin smooth, moisturized, and mattified.

Small bottle. This is a nice subtle moisturizer, nothing to write home about honestly. I like the double-repair moisturizer better for the thickness and smell but that's just my personal opinion. Overall 7/10

I love using this product after i for the first 3 steps of the acne treatment.

I have very oily skin and really wanted to love this product but it made my face more oily after my make up was completed. It's also very expensive for the amount yoy get. I went back to my Neutrogena Hydro Boost gel cream.

If you have truly oily skin, this probably won't work for you. After awhile, my face is oilier than if I'd used my normal face lotion (just cerave). I think it's because my skin overcompensates for the lack of moisturizing and it makes me extremely oily. I used this for several months and my skin never adjusted. It does feel really nice when I put it on though—very matte. If you have more normal-to-oily skin, this might still work for you.

I was really looking forward to try this product, but for some reason it stings on my face and it last the entire day untill I wash it off. Also skin seems to be even oilier through my make up. Very upsetting :(
I use effaclair face wash and it works wonders, but moisturizer is no go for me.

Bottle comes half empty.. and for the price that shouldn't happen

Not impressed with this so-called matte finish moisturizer. It does not really give a matte finish, actually on the shiny side and for the price it contains a very small quantity.
Salina from Canton, MI
This makes me skin matt even after i put on sunscreen. Im in love with this moisturizer, my new go to. Though, why is the packaging so small! Cant they make a value size, its really recommended. This product doesnt last very long from my experience, maybe im using to much?
Samantha B from Vista, CA
I love the matte feeling of this lotion. It's the perfect finish to my daily skincare routine. It's takes away the oily complexion that I have.

I bought this product yesterday afternoon and used it for the first time before bed. As I was putting it on, I was loving it! A little while later, while I was laying in bed I brushed my hand across my face to feel the moisturizer after it had dried down. With the light pressure of my hand it started to pull up immediately. So sad. Going to try the other LRP matte moisturizer. Hope it doesn't pill!

Is this stuff great?! YES! But the price is ridiculous for the size of bottle you get. I read the size before buying but was still shocked by the small amount you get for almost $40. It blurs, is great for oily skin, & honestly my favorite moisturizer. However, its just not afforable for everyday use. I dont think I'll purchase again simply due to the cost.
Maggie from WV
I was recommended this by many people bc my skin is sensitive & oily. It made me more oily in my t-zone & cheeks then I was before, & I started breaking out in the same areas. It's also scented, smells good, but not for sensitive skin.
Ainosya from Pittsburgh
I have an oily T zone. Therefore I planned to use this product only there. But it burns and when I applied it to my front head it gives ne headache even with a tiny amount
I am really disappointed of this product.

It's over all a very good product

This is the BEST moisturizer! Please don't ever change it or stop selling it. I'm going to be a life long user.
