Great for a night of lots of pictures

Perfect primer for a big night. This is not something I would use everyday but great for weekends and special events

Love it!

I have very oily skin so I can go through 7 blot cloths at a time because of it. I have tried a sample of this before and I have loved them, it really puts my oils at bay. I'm really considering getting this item since I feel it might be a good investment.

Works great!

Let me preface this by saying that I have a very oily t-zone. I've used many mattifying products with varying degrees of success, and I must say was extremely skeptical about this especially since I've never heard of the brand. I tried it for the first time this morning. I'm amazed at how effective it's been. No trace of shine on my nose or forehead whatsoever! I would've had to powder at least once already.

The only downside was that it made my foundation a bit hard to blend, but it's a small price to pay for a shine-free face in the middle of a hot and humid NYC summer season. Definitely will be purchasing this!

Not for me

I'm pretty lazy, so I believe in a one do it all product (I love BB/ CC cream!!), but since it's summer and my face is pretty greasy, I thought I'd give it a go when this came in my box. Of course, I used it sparingly, since I only had a small amount. Do NOT do this. In order to effectively use this product, used a thicker layer and allow to dry before moving forward.

Amazing!

I wore the sample under my CC cream to a friend's wedding/reception. The CC cream when on smoother than normal after application. After about ten hours, including standing around in hot and humid weather outside for an hour or so, and then dancing a lot for at least five hours, I still didn't have any shine, and my makeup held better than it normally does. This product is well worth the expense!

GAMECHANGER
Sampled

If you have oily skin like myself, OC8 Professional Mattifying Gel is a gamechanger for your skin care routine. This gel, which you apply after moisturizer but before makeup, keeps your skin looking radiant, smooth and shine-free. Even after walking around the city on a hot afternoon, my skin still looked flawless up to 8 hours after application.

This product is a MUST HAVE.

Not weatherproof

I am not sure this product works or not - it is summer, and it is hot! Everyone is sweating, this is not a miracle product. Works as well as many other primers....

How am I the first to review this?! I wasn't thrilled over this in my box, however, after using it I am sold. It's like a primer for everyday use. Price is a little high but I think it's worth it for the quality.

It works- but for a price...
Sampled

I didn't really think this product would work, but it did maintain a matte finish on my makeup, and for me it was all day. I noticed I didn't get shiny at all today, which is a usual for me because of my skin type and the fact that it's hot and humid in the midwest- plus I am extra hot and sweaty all the time due to being 7 months pregnant. I think a little bit goes a long way, I sampled too much at once and had to wipe some of it off. That could be a good attribute given the price. I really liked it and would definitely buy except that I think that it's outrageous to pay this much for a matte finish.
