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.

Nice but...

I had high hopes for this primer, as I've been trying lots of different ones. Although it worked I found that it did not last as long as my favorite drug store primer.

Love it!

I have sensitive combo skin, and being 'middle age' , deal with hormonal skin issues as well, so I'm wary of trying skin gels. THIS IS A GREAT PRODUCT! It controlled oily appearance, and I used it under both foundation, and powder only. Thanks Birchbox, for the sample!

I bought this for my boyfriend. He has extremely oily skin. I can tell a big difference since he has been using this gel.

I got this as a sample and started using it and had to come back for full product. I use this everyday and it definitely keeps my makeup lasting longer and looking better.

Does wonders!

This mattifying gel goes on really smooth and it covers any existing blemishes or imperfections. It did not make my skin feel extra oily which I liked because I already have some areas that are very oily.

Ok

This product seemed to work as advertised, but I think mattifying gels just aren't for me. I really didn't care for the texture on my skin.

My skin feels awesome!

I was skeptical to try this product, I wasn't sure what it would do for me, but I was so wrong! It leaves my skin baby-soft and looks like I have zero pores. Love it as a base coat under my powder foundation!

My skin is sensitive so this product is a must have for me! It works perfectly with makeup on.

Glad it came in my birchbox!
