Love this! I own both this and MAC's Matte, but this wins hands down. It's a liquid formula that comes out of a drip bottle, and you apply one drop at a time until you are finished. I purchased this at Target when I was re-buying Boots Anti-Blemish line, and thought I'd give it a shot, and I'm glad it did. I applied it after my moisturizer and before foundation, and it did keep me less shiny than normal.
This is a wonderful product for oily skin. I tend to have a "shiny" T-zone by the end of the work day. I use this on top of my tinted moisturizer on days I don't wear my BE minerals foundation. Prevents the shine that happens around midday. I love the fact it's a liquid--I just add it to my moisturizer and apply. 2 drops are plenty. Has not made me breakout--using it for about a month. Relatively inexpensive. I used to use Benefit Dr. Feelgood balm--I prefer this product. Definitely would recommend this product. I'm slowly becoming a Boot's fan--thankfully my local Target carries this brand.
The bottle sucks and is small for what you pay for. However, I do see a difference in my oily skin. It looks much more in tact as the day wears on. It is very watery. I apply it by dripping it into my palm and taking my elf flat top brush and patting it into my oily areas. I found that putting it on after I have put my foundation and powder on works best. I suggest to pat into your skin instead of smearing it as if it were a lotion.
I love this product. it literally does instantly matte your face. I have very oily skin. my only issue is it is very watery! and most of it drips off your fingers before you get it to your face. but i just put mine into an old travel size urban decay de slick bottle and spray it on my face. they both contain 15 ml. but honestly i see WAY better results with the boots brand!
I've always thought of myself having combination skin, but I think the moisterizer I'm currently using I think is making me oiler than usual. No breakouts, but usually after about 45 min. my face gets noticeably greasy. Well I tried this out for the first time today. I have to be honest I wasn't expecting much. I don't like the way the the product dispenses, basically a drip on the finger and apply. But I applied to my usual oily spots. I went out saw a movie, did some shopping. When I came back home and checked in the mirror, I was surprised to find that my face was still not shiny! So I'm quite happy with this product. I would buy this again.
This product is Excellent. I have a Very oily T zone.Have tried all kinds of products and foundations for oily skin.This stuff works. I apply moisturizer everywhere but the T zone,put a few drops of instant matte on T zone and make up on top...the oil stays under control most of the day...Love this stuff (and no break outs from it) !!!
This is HG! My face is basically an oil factory, Im constatly blotting all day long and I still look like I could guide a plane with the reflection off my face! I have used this for a couple of days and my face has never been so matte and my makeup has never lasted so long! I wear EL double wear and that alone helped to control my oil, but I still would get shiny, but this stuff makes it so that i only have to blot once maybe twice a day. Its like magic in a bottle, but I do wish that it had more of an eye dropper top instead of just a flat dropper top, but other than that its AMAZING!
Oh and used with the boots oil control lotion its twice as lovely!
O-M-G!!! This product is like magic in a bottle. Ive tried various mattifiers over the years and this is hands down the best!!!
A few drops goes a long way! I apply it after my moisturizer but before my foundation. Im shine free all day with no need for touch ups!
Absolutely recommend this to any one looking to be shine free without adding extra layers of makeup.
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!!!!
This did absolutely nothing. I put in on thinking that my face would be matte, but it looks exactly the same. If you are looking for a really good matte product, try Medi-Matte. That's what I should have purchased instead of this. I'm taking it back.
I have a very oily complexion (especially in winter - natural reaction to the dryness and cold) and this kept it in check for over 8hrs. I'd honestly have to say this is a HG for me, and I'll definitely be trying out more of the No. 7 line.
