the best lotion i have ever used! it makes my makeup matte really well for more than 8 hours. but then i stopped using this when i found avene skin recovery cream since its for intolerant skin. but what do you know? it breaks me out even more, or possibly WORSE! so then i stopped using the skin recovery cream and use this again... it doesnt just helps to absorb excess oil but miraculously heals those annoying cystic bumps. however its quite pricey for such a small drugstore product - like maybe around $32 (in my country) for 40mL. oh well, it doesnt even matter. as long as it done the good job, then i dont mind repurchasing it over and over again.
I think this is a very good product. It does not irritate my skin and helps control oil production. I have a problem with some similar types of moisturizers that when I apply it, my skin produces even more oil. But I have no problem with this moisturizer. The texture is very light, and the scent is very light, too. It doesn't break me out. The only problem is, this stuff doesn't work with thick and long-lasting foundations, because it makes your skin feel dry and cakey. When I use this product under a regular liquid foundation, it didn't happen to me. I recommend.
A good product. It keeps me matte for a reasonable time (2-4 hours) and even if I sweat a lot, it still controls excess shine after I blot the sweat away with a tissue. That's definitely one of the best sides of this product. I sometimes start looking oily even after 30 mins of applying make-up so this product is a must for work days.
The product is a light gel, which turns more powdery after you spread it but doesn't have a nasty silicone slick to it. So far, I have liked every Avene products I have tried and this one doesn't disappoint either. Thumbs up!
This product smells great. It's a soothing sweet but "rounded" smell found in most avene products. Compared to the other mattifying products I've tried, this beats them all hands down. I've tried garnier light oil control cream(pore clogger!), Khiels Rare earth pore minimizing lotion (sucks and it's hella expensive at S$69~ US$57.50), etc. and all of them makes my face shiny within an hour or two. This doesn't! My face remains matte for four hours, and that's great considering how oily my skin is and how humid my country is. It costs around S$36~US30 without discount but I got mine at S$24.40 at the local polyclinic so I'm quite pleased. I've got a second tube stocked up. I honestly can't expect an all day mattifying lotion as that'll mean it's hella strong. This doesn't make my face very oily after four hours, but there is some sebum production. Can't blame this product. Might work excellently in colder, drier climates.
so far the best moisturizer i've used in my life.I cant go without it, yesterday i didnt used the cream and my face felt disgusting. The only con about it is that it cost almost 30$
This does nothing to regulate my oil. Felt so dissapointed :c.
It made my face oilier than usual, why is this happening to me??
Been using this for a few days now (morning only) and so far I am very pleased. I have a very oily t-zone and use powder every couple of hours. I've noticed I'm using a lot less powder with this stuff (and i even wore it with sunscreen with it today!). This moisturiser is just what I've been looking for.
To those with super oily/acne-prone skin... This product does what it promises. It regulates the oilyness significantly and has a super matte finish without drying up the face. The smell isn't pleasant, but then again,its because there are no unnecessary ingredients to enhance the it! Honestly, I'm going to repurchase as soon as I'm out.
This is too drying for my combination skin. I will give it another try in the summertime.
I love this lotion, I always put some in the morning before I put my make up on, and some in the evening before I get to sleep. I love the smell, very fresh and delicate. It leaves my skin matte and hydrated. I'm currently using my second bottle and I'm happy about the results I get.
