Only product I've found that mattifies my skin

I've only recently begun to experiment with makeup. I'm in my 30s and have extremely oily skin and have always had to blot excess oil off my face throughout the day, however now that I am wearing makeup more often, I'm having to do it more and I'm also wanting to preserve my look. I have occasional acne flares but mostly just deal with an oil slick on my forehead and nose. I received a sample of this product and it is the only liquid based foundation/cream that keeps my oil at bay throughout the day. I am now on a quest to discover a comparable product to this as it seems this BB cream is discontinued.

The best discovery I've made on Birchbox so far!
Purchased

I first received this as a sample with the dr. brandt "clean up nice" kit and I immediately purchased the full size. I have combination skin that tends to be a little more on the oily side so I've never had much luck with BB creams. They always have too little coverage and end up leaving my face really shiny. This one was different! It has the perfect amount of coverage while still looking natural and it keeps my face shine free pretty much all day when I use it with a primer, which is amazing because I've never been able to find a foundation or BB cream that could do that for me! I'm absolutely in love with this product!

Great foundation
Purchased

Just give it a little shake before you apply and it goes on really evenly. I know other reviews complain it comes out a little separated but all you have to do is shake it a little before you squeeze it out of the tube. It's nice and lightweight and provides the SPF which is a huge plus. Overall a really nice BB cream. I have fair skin and the light shade blends really well.

My go-to product
Purchased

I've tried a TON of BB/CC/foundations for my fair skin and very oily t-zone and this is my favorite. I layer it over Smashbox's Photo Finish primer, with a dusting of powder over the top, and it lasts for hours. You do need to shake the bottle because it does separate, and there is initially a pretty strong smell, but it dissipates quickly. I love how you can layer it and it doesn't just float on top of my skin like other creams. The lighter shade is just light enough for my skin, although if you're very fair it will be too dark. It also doesn't exacerbate the flaky skin around my scalp like other products for oily skin.

LOVE

I've only tried the sample (enough to last a couple weeks), but I love it. I have always disliked the way foundation looks, but this lotion provides the perfect amount of coverage AND it looks good all day.

LOVE

I ALWAYS use sunscreen each day, but I love that this product is a 3 in 1. It hides small skin discolorations, and dark circles after not enough sleep, and also mattifies any oil buildup. I have fairly oily skin, and this just is a really pretty base to put on first thing in the morning. All I need to use on my skin after this product is a little powder and concealer on my trouble spots. I love this stuff and will be buying the full-size ASAP!

Great for summertime coverage
Purchased

I bought this product on a whim, hoping it'd be great for summer, with so much sun and fair skin. I was right! I used this BB matte on days I was going to the beach or pool and it protected my skin just fine. It smells a little sunscreen-y and it goes on somewhat thick, but still worked the magic I bought it for. Would purchase again next summer for sure!

Love the coverage and no more shine

I had this in my sample box and once I tried it I had to get the full size! It has great coverage, applies easily, and definitely leaves you shine free!

Love this product!

I've never bought any of the samples I've gotten from any of my little subscriptions but this is a must have. I have to order it now before my sample runs out. I'm not into any foundation or cover-up, just not that chick BUT this is a must have. I can't even tell it's on as far as heaviness goes but when I look in the mirror, I can't stop. MUST HAVE PRODUCT!!
