I am so incredibly disappointed with this product. I had high hopes after reading so many positive reviews and I finally went out and bought a tube of it this past weekend. I have incredibly oily skin and with my typical makeup routine, I can go about 2-3 hours before I have to blot. I've worn this product a few times and every single time I've become overwhelmingly oily within the hour! I've tried multiple different application techniques when putting on my makeup to see if maybe I've just been applying it wrong, but nothing seems to cut it. My makeup always ends up looking super cakey and unappealing with this. I'll give it another couple tries before I return it, but I can already tell this product isn't the miracle I was hoping for.

I'm honestly surprised these aren't rated higher. I'm going to Sasquatch this year and didn't want to have to deal with washing my face twice a day, so i decided to pick some of these up to test them out before the big trip... and I can honestly say I will be continuing to buy them for as long as they're available. These things are amazing at removing my makeup and cleaning my skin. I have REALLY oily skin and clogged pores that are impossible to control, but since I've started using these, my skin has actually improved, which makes me think my cleansers never did a good job at removing my makeup in the first place.
I have combination skin with a very oily T-zone, and this is honestly the best foundation I've found for controlling my oil. It lasts about 3 hours before I have to blot (on a good day, applied in between a primer and setting powder), but I haven't found anything that lasts longer on my skin, which is unfortunate because I wish I could find something long lasting that matches my skin tone properly. I'm very fair skinned and the lightest shade (classic ivory) is slightly too dark with a pink tint. The reason why I only give it 3 lippies is because it lacks a wide variety of shades. Over all, it's a decent foundation for controlling oil and doesn't hurt your wallet too much.
At first I tried this product and absolutely hated it. I wasn't able to get my money back, so I decided to stick with it and see if different application tequniques would improve my satisfaction. I don't know what changed, but I'm now in love with his. I have really oily skin and I'm able to go about 4 hours before having to blot (apposed to the previous 2 hours before I started using this). The colour match is pretty accurate, although I wish it wasnt so heavy. I use a setting powder to get a nice finish, but I always feel like it's pretty obvious I'm wearing make up, which I don't like. All over a pretty good product though! will buy again
