OC8® Professional Mattifying Gel

Alcohol-free and oil-free, it’s safe for even acne-prone skin. Get ready for your close-up.

After first applying the product I did notice nice mattifing effect. However very shortly after my face was oily like it always is. There are other products that work better for half the price

Just not for me

I do not have a problem with shine, so its hard to say if this actually "worked" or not, but it went on smooth and didn't feel too heavy with my makeup over it. Packets for samples were frustrating, would have preferred a small tube.

Honestly, I do not want a gel to put on my face. I was a bit disappointed to receive this in my box. I do not believe this lasts a total of 8 hours, but it lasts. I think it's best for very oily skin.

First of all the smell is terrible. I felt like I could smell it all day. The first day I felt like it did pretty well. Maybe a little less oily than normal. The second day I used my BB cream over it and it just flaked off. I

I have super-dry skin so this product is kind of a bust. A total bust. The last thing I need is matify-ing anything

This is fantastic! I have a really oily t-zone and in the summer I tend to be make-up free because it's just not worth putting on the makeup only to have it slide right off. I used this two mornings in a row and wow. What a difference. I live in Central Florida and as you can imagine the summer is brutal. This kept my makeup on all day and looked good even when I went out at night.

Similar to smashbox

Liked this, but it was so similar to my smashbox photo finish, which is about 1/2 the price, that I think I'll stick with that.

This product is excellent at reducing shine and smoothing out skin making it look consistent.
