Rated 5 out of 5 by Chagiya Love love love this product !!!!'
After reading the reviews I just had to try this product and I am so glad that I did.
I have battled oily skin for years and have tried so many products that are supposed to
absorb the oil but they have never worked. After an hour or so there is the shine again,
but not with the Murad oil-control mattifier.
I never saw any shine even after a whole day of Hawaii's high humidity.
I hope that QVC keeps this item available.
Thank you QVC and Murad !!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by AandB Keeps oil away, new primer!
I have used this every day for a solid week and the results are amazing, better than any primer I have used (Mally, Laura Geller, Bare Essentials) -- and no touch-ups have been needed to "blot" away excess oil in the afternoon. I use this in the morning after my cleansing routine, followed by a full face of makeup. When I look at myself at noon and at 5 pm, I look exactly as I did at 7 am! Normally I would need to blot away the oil starting around noon...but not anymore.
Yes, this does seem a little pricey because you will use a good amount (it is very thick and doesn't like to spread well). However, look at what you will be saving in makeup primer and afternoon touch-up products! Not to mention that if you are a professional, you do not always have time to "freshen your makeup". You are always ready (with no shine) if you use this under your makeup.
I will say that I continue to use Josie's argan oil as my evening moisturizer, so my skin gets a good mixture of hydration. I think that is the key with this product...don't know that this alone would be enough. Even with oily skin, you have to have hydration to repair the cells and stay youthful looking.
Rated 5 out of 5 by littletex Finally an oil control product that actually works
This is a really great product. You do need to apply liberally however if you have really oily skin like I do. It is so nice to have something that actually works more than a couple of hours and also creates a nice palette on which to apply makeup. The added sun protection really puts this product on top!! LOVE IT!!

I have used this three times and I love it so far. My forehead gets very oily and I hate it. I tried Mally's and Geller's products but they only last a couple of hours. This has lasted all day. I'm not sure how it will hold up in the summer but after several hours of shoveling snow the other day and working up a sweat, my forehead and nose area stayed mattified. So very happy I tried this product.

For those days when I have back-to-back meetings all day and no time to blot or powder any oils or shine from my face, this is my go-to product in the morning. My skin is dry-combo and I have visible pores on my nose. After washing my face, I use a light facial moisturizer; let my skin set for a few minutes. Then I apply Murad Oil-Control Mattifier. My skin looks smooth and poreless afterward. No need for me to use a facial primer. I just apply my Airflash foundation afterward. I also lightly sweep a finely milled HD finishing powder on top, and my skin looks good & stays matte the entire day. Also worked great this summer in the heat & humidity on Jersey shore.
Rated 2 out of 5 by ilovemakeup10 Disappointing
I was really hoping this product would work. I have very oily combination skin and it just made my face more oily. Maybe it needs to be used in conjunction with the other Murad products to fully work? Either way it's too expensive to just use as an SPF so I'm returning.
Rated 5 out of 5 by rlw Oil Control + Sun Protection
This is the only product that says "oil control" that actually controls my very oily middle-aged skin all day! It also has antioxidants and sunscreen to boot! I use Proactiv cleanser, mask, toner and repairing treatment (in that order) every night. In the morning, I use Murad clarifying cleanser, exfoliating treatment and oil control mattifier spf 15. Proactiv by itself and Murad by itself never worked completely, but using the combination of both products have worked wonders on my skin! Large pores, blackheads, chin zits and extreme oiliness is now completely under control using BOTH Proactiv AND Murad!!!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by tx syd fabulous find
i have been using murad mattifier for a few years now and it's wonderful for my oily middle aged skin. the sun screen is not often found in mattifiers so the double duty of this product is a true bonus.
I find that a little goes a long way and it does absorb on my skin quite easily and quickly in dry or humid conditions. I use a powder foundation and it keeps it from "slipping" or shining for many hours and in the summer that is key as one can appreciate.
it doesn't feel heavy on my face and that too makes it a great product.
you will not be disappointed.
