awful burning

1

as soon as i put the moisturiser on after cleansing with the foaming cleanser (which i love) there was an awful burning sensation on my face, which a lot of other customers also seem to be describing. do not buy, a waste of money for a painful burning on your skin.

An unfortunate purchase

I had high hopes for this moisturizer. Instead of matte I got even MORE oily and that was after dealing with the burning sensation this induced.

I use this product when I have oily skin as it makes my skin matte to give me a even and easier base.I do not use this product everyday as my skin is combination so it dose tend to dry you out, but I do love this product and definitely recommend it .

Bad reaction to Clear Start Products

1

I bought this as well as the Foaming Cleanser. Both have caused extreme dryness to my skin and stinging after their use and then caused breakouts due to increased oil production to makeup for the dryness. Maybe because this line is designed for younger people (teens) I should't have bought this, but i have never broken out more in my life after using an acne related topical solution. Is a shame because i love other dermalogica products.

I wouldn't buy this product again

I found this product would sting my face as I applied it. It's a shame as I also purchased the clear start fizz mask and clear start foaming wash and really love these products. I only used the moisturiser a few times but found it really dried my skin out and irritated my skin on application.

Oily

This doesn't mattify your skin at all. It left my skin looking and feeling oilier than before. It does the exact opposite of its purpose for a high price.

Left My Face more oily after an 30mins instead of matte

2

I use to apply this after applying the whole clearstart rage in the morning, or sometimes randomly when my face needs a bit of moisture underneath cakey makeup. And I found it making me more oilier then usual throughout the day.

melbourne, Vic

I would buy

I use this every morning to control light acne. I think it is working. It applies on the face easily and smells good.

Is this moisturizer oil free? Does it hydrate dehydrated, oily skin that is acne prone?

Ben

Hello Ben, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This moisturizer is for oily, acne skin. If you are dehydrated, oily and have acne, try Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion. Kind Regards, Bernadette

what level of UVA protection does this offer? how does it compare to the medi bac clearing spf 30 in terms of UVA protection?

LibbyW

Hello, Thank you for your question. This moisturizer offers an SPF protection of 15. Kind Regards, The Dermalogica Team

Can i wear this under my foundation make up

Rockyroad12

Thank you for your inquiry. Oil Free Matte Moisture is a light moisturizer that can be worn under make up for daily use. This moisturizer will help to absorb excess oil and help keep a matte finish for oily skin. -The Dermalogica Team

DermalogicaSkinTherapist

I would not wear it under foundation because I've had problems with it flaking of/into the foundation when I put it on.

EliseNorway

Can I use this morning and night, or just the morning

Muffinman

Thank you for your inquiry. It is recommended that you only use this moisturizer in the daytime due to the SPF in it. Sunscreen is not needed at night. If you would like an oil controlling moisturizer for night time Oil Controlling Lotion would be the best option. It has micro sponges and light hydration to balance oily skin without sunscreen. Please contact us with any further questions. -The Dermalogica Team
