I have incredibly oily skin, and any makeup I would put on would only last 3 hours at most because my oily skin would take over and it would come right off. But ever since I've got the Murad Oil Mattifier, my life has changed! literally! It works in seconds, I use it as a primer and SPF (obviously) and put my makeup right on top, it lasts all day! Plus I've gotten so many compliments on my makeup because it finally lasts all day! and I live in LA (the valley) where its always hot, so imagine that. My whole life (I'am 30)I never found a product from oil free makeup to moisturizers that would work on oily skin, till this!!! I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone with oily skin.

Reduces Oil, Shine, and Breakouts! 
I LOVE this mattifier! I did an amazing job at drying out the excess oil on my skin! I also noticed it helped to reduce some of my breakouts! The only downside is that if you apply it to areas of your face that aren't extra oily, it will dry them out. I made this mistake and applied to my whole first at first which really dried out and made those non oily areas red. But now i only apply this to my Tzone, cheeks and chin and love how it works on those areas! If you have oily skin and are considering this, try it out! However, i recommend using a more moisturizing moisturizer at night so that your skin is not becoming dry and compensating by producing more oil which you can mistake as simply being oily.

Not Right For Me 
I hate this product, but I think it is for more individual reasons than anything else.

I bought the Murad Acne 30 trial kit, and was severely disappointed in this moisturizer. I have combination skin with hormonal acne, so I was frustrated because my skin was being completely dried out by the cleanser, but this moisturizer was not replenishing the drier parts of my face. I also do not like the really thick consistency of the product.

That being said, I feel the product is mattifying as advertised. I like that it has SPF, and the scent is pleasant.

A miracle 
I have the oiliest skin of anyone I know, and this product is the only thing that actually keeps me from looking like a greaseball a few hours after putting my makeup on. I love that it has SPF, since skin cancer runs in my family. If you are on the fence about this product, go to Sephora and ask them for a sample. And then you will be hooked like I am!

A: We can not say for sure why you are reacting but it sounds like you are sensitive to an ingredient within the formula. You can check with your physician to try and determine what it is that you need to avoid.

A: If you use the Oil Control Mattifier and feel that your skin does not have enough moisture you can apply the Skin Perfecting Lotion first and then follow with the Oil Control Mattifier SPF 15.
