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!

Q: can I use it before applying suncreen ?
Asked : Oct 27, 2015
By : Gracie, Westminster, CA
Know the answer? Answer this question
A: You can apply the Oil Control Mattifier SPF 15 prior to your SPF. An SPF 15 protects against 94% of UVB rays whiles an SPF 30 protects against 97%. Anything higher is only about a 1% increase which can provide people with a false sense of security. The reality is that most people don't apply enough. It takes 30mls (about the size of a shot glass) of sunscreen to fully protect the average body from head to toe. One teaspoon of that should be on your face. Protection can be decreased with clothing rubbing the sunscreen off, sweating or being in water. In light of the various factors that can decrease protection we do recommend reapplying once every 2 hours to maintain a constant level of protection, regardless of the SPF.
