OC8® Professional Mattifying Gel

To keep contestants’ faces shine-free under pressure (and scalding-hot stage lights), makeup artists for shows like American Idol and The Glee Project turn to this mattifying gel. The fast-drying formula creates an intermediate layer that absorbs grease for eight full hours. Use it to score a matte, shine-free look—with or without the help of makeup. Alcohol-free and oil-free, it’s safe for even acne-prone skin. Get ready for your close-up.

I have such oily skin. Like an oil slick! This helps keep it at bay and control the shine and oil for up to 8 hours. A keeper

I received a sample of this mattifying gel in my Birchbox and just ordered the full-size. This gel left my skin shine-free for the day and my makeup looked fresh until it was time to come off at night! I have somewhat sensitive skin and this did not irritate my skin.

Changed my mind...

Okay - I didn't like this so much at first. But the more I use it, the more I'm learning to like it. It really does do a good job of keeping skin tone even and looking nice. I'm just not sure about the price being worth it...

No Oil in Sight

I have always had trouble with oily skin and nothing ever seemed to work longer than an hour or two. This gel worked wonders! It kept my skin oil free for the full day at work, which unfortunately is longer than 8 hours. It also did not dry out my skin. My skin has a tendency to peel and look flaky around my nose even though it is oily and this product didn't prompt any of those issues.

Worked nicely

I really liked this product. I have an oily t-zone and bangs, so keeping my face as oil free as possible is important. I liked the way it felt on my face and only needed to use a small amount.
