PETER THOMAS ROTH Max Anti-Shine Mattifying Gel

There's a major difference between a dewy complexion and an oil-slicked face, which is why we're working hard to find products that cure the latter. Our latest acquisition? Peter Thomas Roth's Max Anti-Shine Mattifying Gel, which features an advanced roster of powerful oil-absorbing and pore-minimizing ingredients. We love how it absorbs shine and controls excess oil without stripping our skin's natural moisture barrier. Plus, it keeps our makeup from sliding down our faces midday, which is a miracle in itself.

Best product I've bought on Birchbox
Purchased

I've bought maybe half a dozen full-size products on Birchbox since starting my subscription a little less than a year ago, and this product is hands-down the best of the bunch. I have very oily skin, and by the time I get home from work, no matter what I've done to my makeup, I'm shiny and gross. When I use this product under my makeup, I stay matte longer. What makes it doubly awesome is, if by early evening I'm shiny but don't want to wash my face and reapply my makeup for going out, I can put this over my existing makeup. It absorbs the oil and doesn't ruin the makeup I have one. This product does everything it promises. Hugely recommended.

This stuff is great! I can avoid foundation when I use it. A little goes a long way. I just wish the full size came in a tube like the sample instead of a bottle.

LOVE this!! Finally something that works and LASTS on taking the shine out of my T-zone. This works for long nights out with friends, or hot days outside. LOVE it.

I am in love with this product! I often have oily skin and am always in search of a product to help prevent the oil from taking over -- or, at least, delay it. I often use blotting papers which are great but only fix the situation once it has occured. The Anti-Shine Mattifying Gel goes on like airy velvet and really does work. I use it along with other serums, moisturizers, and primers, and there is a noticible reduction in oil and extension in the life of my makeup each day. I can't wait to try this out in the summer when it gets really hot!

My skin gets really oily during the day and I've tried other matte primers, anti-shine powders, etc... but the very first time I tried this, it worked ALL day. When I came home, it was 10 pm and my skin looked so soft and amazing that I almost didn't want to wash my face. It's a wonder product and I daresay worth the price

I have very oily skin, and have found few products that help much with it. I was skeptical of what this mattifying gel could do, but I was wrong. It is amazing. I'm glad to have discovered it before the summer when my face is most oily.

I put some of this on today over my makeup. It was early evening, and I noticed that my nose and cheeks were looking shiny. I couldn't believe how quickly this product worked! It went on super-smooth and light, and it instantly made my face "matte," but not dry-looking. I was very impressed. A little went a long way, and since this only comes in 1 oz. sizes (that I know of), I guess that would last me for a while.
