Bought this after reading reviews on here and have to say I am very very impressed, I have a very oily t zone, I apply this sparingly before foundation (sparingly is the key word here otherwise foundation won't go on right), and although I still have to blot after a few hours, it's way better than not using at all and blotting every single hour!!
I tried a sample of this for about two weeks, I hate having oily skin and will try anything and was attracted by the great reviews here, but I have to say it really didn't work for me, whilst it's lovley to use, smells divine and sinks right in, I had a sneaky feeling it was making my skin more oily than ever!!
Got this in Nude, mostly use it over sunscreen like Clinique City Block and it does help keep my oily t zone matte for longer, it's extremely natural and doesn't show on the skin at all, only trouble is the packaging although cute, is a bit awkward for taking out!
Wow I love this foundation, I got it in the lightest shade Laurel Nude, and it looks fab, really natural and my skin but better! I stumbled on it by chance and I'm glad I did, I've tried a fair few foundations now and think this may be the best. Edited to say that although I love this foundation, unfortunatley there are not enough shades and I couldn't find a perfect match, if I could I would definately stick with it!

I wanted to like this moisturiser, I love the scent and the cute jar, but, I found it left a bit of a shiny sheen on my face so I didn't feel as though it really sank in.

I really really like this moisturiser, I have combo skin, oily t zone, I only moisturise at night, this really is the only moisturiser I've found that really sinks in, it has a lovley fresh cool cucumber scent, I love the tube as it's so hygienic, just squeeze out the amount you want, and best of all, it's cheap.
I have been using this for about a week and really really want this to work as I have a very oily t zone, am using Dermalogica products maily, I would like people to message me and convince me to carry on with this as even though I am using this sparingly it still feels a bit greasy to put on my skin, and I still have to blot skin with Clean and Clear oil sheets every couple of hours, anyway will report back on how I'm doing in a couple of months as all the positive posts on here have made me think I'll persevere with this a while longer! OK update as I've given this a couple of months, I've given up on this as a bad job, and I'm quite relieved I have, it did nothing for me at all and I still have to regularly blot my face so no reduction in oil production at all, plus it does feel yucky on the skin even though I did use the tiniest drop, I didn't feel as though it ever sank in and it just sat there adding to my oil slick.
I really like this but I have a feeling that using it too frequently could make my skin produce more oil, so would only use it once a week or there abouts!
This is lovley and i love the packaging (I'm so shallow!!) but I just have a feeling the mattifying powders in it were making me produce more oil!!

I absolutely love this serum, it feels like silk on my oily skin and soaks in so well, only downside is the price!!
Liquid -Clinique - Superfit Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

I really really wanted to like this product, I have combination/oily skin and this had been recommended to me, but it just didn't last at all, it had virtually disappeared after a couple of hours, never mind, my quest for a good foundation continues!!
I really couldn't get on with this at all, it looked really chalky on me, the two shades the sales assistants gave me were totally wrong and it just felt too dry and powdery even though I have combination/oily skin.
I really really love this foundation, I have combination/oily skin and this feels so nice, some foundations feel yucky on my skin but this feels so natural like there is nothing there at all, it gives a nice natural coverage and it lasts and lasts, unlike some I've tried which just sort of disappear after a couple of hours!! Edited to say that although I love this, again I couldn't find a perfect shade for my skin, such a shame.
