Where have you been all my life? Usually, by the end of the day, my face feels completely heavy and gross. All I could think about was getting home to wash my face. I don't wear foundation 90% of the time either because foundation won't stay on my face or the oils make foundation change to an orange color.

The first day I tried this, I thought "Okay! Works nice at 7:00am. What product doesn't?" But this kept working, and kept working, and kept working. I could still see WAY less shine at 5:00pm when I got home. No makeup on after working in the outdoor elements a few hours. I didn't feel completely heavy and gross face by bed time.
So, it's a week later and will absolutely buy this again. I have sensitive skin, and it hasn't bothered my skin any. I have used it with foundation without any problems at all. I am definitely recommending this to my shiny guy and gal pals, too.

a nice product.

This seems to work well and my skin feels nice. The hydration is just right for warm days. I do like that it does calm my skin at time when my face is not at its best. My only problem was that I could not get the applicator to work. I ended up prying the top off and replacing it with another

Nice moisturizer, but not mattifying

I was really excited to try this, but unfortunately, it fell short. The nice thing about this is that the lotion smells nice and hydrates well, and is light weight. But i was really looking for something to really control shine, and it doesn't. As least not to the degree I expected since Mattifying is in the name of the product. It might help with minimizing shine, but under my makeup, I can't really tell and still need to touch up with a powder to control shine.
On its own, without makeup, I didn't notice any difference in my face, other than feeling moisturized, which is nice, still not much of an improvement on shine. Maybe my expectations where just a bit too high. But I will continue to use it since it does hydrate and smell very pleasant.
