You guys know of my oil combatting adventures. Remember MAC Matte?(Why don't I just leave the oil alone and let it help me stay young? I know, I know! This is really just a Spring/Summer issue.) Since it's not my holy grail mattifying product, I've been on somewhat of a search for just that.
A Sephora visit afforded me the opportunity to try Cosmedicine Medi Matte Oil Control Lotion with SPF 20. (Go Beauty Insiders!)
- Controls sebum production creating the perfect environment to normalize oily skin
- Reduces potential for breakouts by eliminating excess oil and clogged pores
- Reduces shine for up to 8 hours
- Makes skin look even, smooth and flawless
I used a bit of this and was very impressed. I applied the almost-glue-like product to my tzone areas. The product didn't quite show results for 8 hours, but long enough that I'm thoroughly impressed. Some may feel that the product is a bit thick, but when placed right in the tzone areas, the formula goes on and mattes out into your skin. No big deal. This blows MAC Matte out of the water results wise. However, the cost is quite exorbitant ($42 on their site). Though, with the money spent on trying other mattifiers, powders, and primers, I could have bought this and would have been completely satisfied. I can't vouch for the other claims, but for me, it's a product that works!
Some of the key ingredients are pomegranate, vitamin C and dimethicone.
Have you tried this? What do you think? Hopefully, when I replace my cam I can show you some pics =/
