Irritating and oily

By 

from California

Comments about oil clearing matte moisturizer spf15:

I bought this from a local spa after it was recommended to me. When applying, my skin feels irritated and the product have a bit of a burning effect. Leaving it on throughout the day hoping my skin would be okay, the burning effect never went away. Also, after about two hours my skin looks like I just rubbed butter all over it (literally ran my finger across my skin and oily dripped off.) I'm assuming it's from my skin being irritated from the moisturizer and due to that, it created excess sebum to try to protect it. So overall, my skin is very irritated from this, and I'm insanely oily.

A Beauty Staple!!!

By 

from Maryland

Comments about oil clearing matte moisturizer spf15:

Pros of this product -
~absorbs quickly
~light & non sticky
~matte finish discourages oil
~has a mild & pleasant smell
~convenient container design
I use it daily, twice a day - after I wash my face in the am and pm. It's light and absorbent. I find that my face is oilier throughout the day if I don't use it. When I used it at first, my skin was unaccustomed to it (a minor, cool stinging but no redness or irritation), but after giving it a steady week, my skin began to respond wonderfully. I don't know how my skin survived long enough for me to find this product. I'm not really good at keeping a steady face cleaning regimen but I've been improving with the help of this moisturizer - it feels so good to put on that I never forget to!

Disappointed

By 

from Lancashire

Comments about oil clearing matte moisturizer spf15:

Very disappointed with this moisturiser, bought on recommendation from local salon for my teenage daughter along with Clear Start cleanser. The first time she used the moisturiser she said it felt like it was burning her skin and it made her skin dry and uncomfortable. Salon suggested her skin needed to get used to it but she refuses to use it anymore as it is so uncomfortable.

Meh

By 

from Washington, DC

Comments about oil clearing matte moisturizer spf15:

I started shaving my head totally bald and was looking for a moisturizer with SPF and a matte effect so I don't have the shiny dome look.

This product works as a moisturizer and leaves my skin feeling nice. Has a pleasing light herbal/green scent as well. That said, it leaves a slight shine on my skin, I don't find it to be matte. I have had better luck with other matte moisturizers (but those don't have SPF).

i really like this

By 

from Nottingham

Comments about oil clearing matte moisturizer spf15:

I have been using this product since I have first tried the sample. It is, noticeably less shiny than other products, lightweight and does the job, it doesn't cause any breakouts or feel layered/ greasy.

Burning

By 

from England

Comments about oil clearing matte moisturizer spf15:

I got this product as part of a sample pack with the other clear start products. Applied it to my face and after it finally sank into the skin, a painful burning sensation started. Really not impressed.

Burning skin

By 

from UK

Comments about oil clearing matte moisturizer spf15:

Bought this for my teenage son who had previously been using the daytime treatment moisturiser which seems to have been discontinued. Within seconds of applying his face like it was reacting - he waited to see if it would calm down but it got worse and after a few minutes he had to wash it all off with cool water - his face was burning and his skin was red and irritated. He wont be using it again!

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

      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.

  • Q:

    Can I use this morning and night, or just the morning
    Asked on 4/12/2015 by Muffinman from Sydney NSW, Australia

    1 answer

    • A:

      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.
