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.

My face tends to get oily and I constantly have to blot it. I like this product, because I can go for 3-4 hours with a matte, dewy face. Unfortunately, as soon as it wears off, my face gets even oilier than normal, so I have to keep reapplying throughout the day. I haven't come across a better product yet, but I might hold off on purchasing and wait for a longer-lasting product.

OMG! This is definitely the stuff for me! I've been looking for something good that takes my oily shine away.

This definitely works - but I don't really wear a lot of makeup, and I'm not sure I need this in my daily routine. Maybe for special occasions? Would definitely recommend to face-makeup-wearing friends though!

I don't have oily skin but I still get shiny sometimes in the summer/spring so I like this product but don't have tons of use for it.

Shine is a major problem with my skin. It was great to try a product that minimized pores and minimized shine. It was something I had not tried before.

I liked the silky feeling this gave my skin, but I really don't think it did much for shine-control. In fact, I think my blotting sheets came out more oily on the days I used this product than the days I didn't.

I am still not sure about this one. I think I can tell more of a difference in pores than when using my boscia no pores treatment but I'm not sure if it justifies the price. Will try out another week or 2 and then decide if I want to buy 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!

I think this def worked. it didnt break me out but it felt really weird putting it on. Like powder gel. Not sure if i should moisturize first and then put it on or what....hard to know how to use it.

I felt that this didn't do as good of a job as my Smashbox primer at keeping my complexion oil free. I love how it feels going on though!
