Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works! I bought this a couple of weeks ago and wash skeptical because I have extremely oily skin and I had tried mattifying moisturizers before and not had much success. I have been using this every morning and I can honestly say this has reduced the amount of oil on my skin and my makeup stays on all day I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can’t do without this moisturiser Fantastic moisturizer if you’re using acne fighting products that dry and flake your skin. This smooths onto your face and the difference is immediate and long lasting. I’m on my second tube and can’t recommend it highly enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Change for the Better Changed to this moisturiser not to long ago already got through a tube and willing to buy it again. it doesn't necessarily mattify my skin however I find that it has visibly made a difference. I suffer from a lot of pores and i'd get small bumps/spots across my forehead, chin and nose. This product has made this completely reduce.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For acne skin that is dried out from benzoyl perox Never leave reviews but I have to for this. I'm 28 recovering a terrible bout of acne that I've had for about 10 months. Acne is slowly getting better but the harsh benzoyl peroxide and acids that I have to use have simultaneously being ruining my skin at the same time as saving it by killing the bacteria. This is the first moisterizer I've found in many months of using benzoyl peroxide that doesn't just sit on top of my skin, it soaks in quickly and doesn't break me out at all. I also feel like it's also helping a lot with the texture of my skin which has felt very bumpy and uneven (probably just dehydrated around acne scars), it seems to instantly plump and make the whole area look like normal skin again. Only used it for a few days but so happy I bought it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT moisturiser for 40 skin too if oily/acne I use all the effaclar products but never bought this as I thought it would be mainly a mattifier and not much of a moisturiser. I tend to use the Effaclar H moisturiser for dry skin, which is great in winter. But now in te hot summer I thought I'd try the mat+ moisturiser and my 43 year old acneic skin is super happy. It visibly reduces pores, and it moisturises by sinking in immidiatlely; I also think it helps with the acne . Won't take all shine away (but that is not why I bought it - some shine reduces look of wrinkles anyway!). Super happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect moisturiser for oily skin I never take the time to review my skincare products, but this one leaves my skin perfectly balanced between moisturised and oily. Totally non-greasy, sinks in straight away, deals with dryness but mattifies instantly. Really does what it says on the tin - my skin stays matte for longer (I'm very oily) and when used under make-up it's a little longer until shine starts to appear. It won't eliminate shininess / oil, but get your skin off to a great start. It's helping to shrink my acne too! You only need a tiny bit at a time but I wish there was a little more product in the bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works really well for oily skin I never review anything, but thought I should for this. I have really oily skin and found this helps loads. My make up stays in place longer and really helps keep the shine at bay. I definitely recommend this for people with oily skin, it's been a life safer after many years of struggling.
