- Highest Quality Acne available
This product works really well. I have combo skin and it gets oily in the T-zone and this helps. I got my brother and sister in law on it too. They love it too.
I’ve been using this for a while after my racialist detested it to me. It made a huge difference! It prevents new black heads or white heads from emerging and keeps your makeup in a matte Finnish! I would highly recommend it!
I expected more…
My oil problem is extreme. I don’t have bad acne, just extremely oily skin. I use oil mattifying lotion, oil inhibitors, makeup "stay spray", shine reducing primer, oil control foundation, normal powder foundation, and invisible oil absorbing powder on top. This was the most expensive oil control product that I’ve ever purchased so I guess I expected more. I still have to blot every 2 hours or so. I’m going back to my old brand which is half the cost and works a little better.However, I do notice that immediately after I apply it, the shine reflecting off my skin in the mirror greatly diminishes. I wish this same effect would last all day.
Not because I have mixed skin type
I don’t love it because I have mixed skin types including oily skin areas; but because it vanishes acne insanely fast without making my skin dry out like a retin-A product does.Admittedly, I didn’t use this product properly and it kept peeling off my face like as if I was shedding silicone skin. I also didnt care for the texture on my fingers and was doubting if i would like it on my face. After I went onto dermalogicas site and read up on the product, I realized I was using it improperly. They recommend putting it on the T-zone as its supposed to reduce pores, ect, etc. For me, I didn’t see any difference in pore size, however it kills my blemishes within 1-2 days with no flakey dry skin or redness. If I feel something coming on, I immediately put it in that area and it either never surfaces or minimizes the duration. Also, when I do have a blemish, it smooths out the skin and reduces the redness so that it’s much less noticeable. I don’t wear concealer or foundation, so for me, this was a bonus. However, if you do wear makeup, I think it would act like a primer does for even application. It’s not meant for an all over the face type thing. I really only use it in blemish areas.Side note: I noticed that this doesn’t “stay on” if I’m sweaty (right out the shower). So If that shedding stuff happens to you, make sure you put it on while your skin is super dry and clean. I use this in the AM/PM and any other time for spot treatments. Also, after a while, I still get a shine and feel that the shine is exponentially decreased when paired with “oil control.” Again, the strongest points for me with this product is that it gets rid of the blemishes, evens out the skin so it’s less noticeable, and reduces redness slightly. The other promises about black heads, reducing pores and oil control didn’t work. But I still love the product for the spot treatment.
Uses it everyday
Keeps the shine away and helps keep skin clear of pimples. Sometimes I put too much on and it tends to peel off. Make sure your skin is totally dry too.
Great for Oily or Combo Sensitive Skin!
This product is a godsend in the summer; your make-up will stay on and shine is eliminated.Plus, it helps ease the redness and irritation in the blemishes while also helping to clear them up!I use it in the t-zone, only.Amazing!
