Question

The description of this product says that it is a "3-in-1 moisturizer that mattifies immediately, controls oil up to 8 hours, and effectively reduces breakouts" Most of the people that have answered this question seem to assume that if your skin is oily or blemish-prone, you do not need a moisturizer, but that is not the case. All skin types, even oily ones, can be dehydrated, which is why there are oil-free moisturizers on the market. I used to work for a major skin care/cosmetics company, and I have personally used this product on my very oily, blemish-prone, dehydrated skin, and I think it works wonderfully, even in Florida's unforgiving humidity. After cleansing my face and applying any treatments like acne spot treatments, etc. I use this as my moisturizer, SPF and mattifier, then follow with my smashbox oil-free primer and foundation. In my opinion, you can't go wrong with this daily essential!

I dont know why everyone keeps asking if you need a moisturizer with it. Obviously you would only be looking into this product if you have very oily skin. If you dont have oily skin, then murad has plenty of other products to try out. Second, this does have moisturizing ingredients in, the seasme seed oil is really all you need, that is a fine emollient for sealing in moisture. If you have dry skin, then dont bother using this obviously.

I don't know why you would want to use a mattifier and a moisturizer together!!! Even though this mattifys, it does not do it to the extent you would feel dry to the point that you need a moisturizer. If you need a moisturizer, then you should not use a product with a mattifier.

You DO have to work fast if you want to blend it with anything, OTOH this is made up for by the great mattifying that it does. If you are putting foundation over it, try blending the foundation in your palm with the moisturizer?

i found that it is a little hard to blend as well but if you warm up your hands a bit by rubbing them together then it helps the product to warm up and spread a little easier. It takes me a good couple of minutes to get mine worked in but i believe it is because of the spf.

I would say, no. It is not good for acne-prone skin, does not prevent, and in fact, promotes breakouts, and does not mattify well. I have combination acne-prone skin and use Smashbox, photo finish light, without the problems this product caused. The Smashbox product also mattifies better.

If you have combination skin, and this drys out parts of your skin, I would only apply this to the oily areas, otherwise you may find it drying.

I have the same skin type and so far it has prevented any new breakout in the area where I apply it. When I see a pimple on my cheek (an area i don't apply it in, since I'm using it for my t-zone) I apply a bit and it heals it quickly and effectively. Has a pecular scent but not anything that can't be ignored. Not over drying, still leaves softness in your skin.

I have the Dr. Bronner and it fills your pores to create a smooth finish under makeup. This product is an oil inhibitor, so instead of filling pores it tightens them up and keeps them from putting out oil. Your makeup/ powder stays dry and smooth all day and your skin appears tighter with the pores all closed up. Breakouts dry up faster and skin gets clearer quickly.

This is an oil controler. See, what it does is it constricts your pores, making them smaller and limiting the amount of oil your pores produce while it is on. There is no "filling" things in.... this was formulated for people who have OILY skin and need help controlling that oil.

No, this product doesn't fill in your pores, just mattifies, so you don't have to worry about your pores getting bigger. It does make your pores less noticeable though because they don't stand out when you're not shinny! Hope this helps!

I have not noticed this at all. My skin looks smooth after use. It works almost like a primer for oily skin.

I have not tried Dr. Brandt products. When I find one that works, I stick with it.

I actually use this at night & in the AM, even though it has sunscreen. I have really dry/colored hair & using this keeps my bangs from getting oily at night. So I use it quite a lot.

All that to say that I haven't noticed any problems with using it continually. Of course, I DO use an enzyme mask to help keep my skin and pores clean. If you weren't to use proper cleaning habits, that might be more of an issue.

I don't find that it fills the pores. My pores are not larger and it preps my skin for a mineral foundation very well.

Question
Should I use this at night?
I love this product in the morning before applying my makeup, but should I apply it at night after washing off all my makeup?

Yes you can and should use it at night as well as in the morning because we tend to produce a lot of oil on our face at night.

I find that it's not moist enough for me at night. You probably COULD use it at night, but personally I prefer something a little richer, especially since I don't really care if I'm oily in my sleep and I don't need the sun protection either :) I'd recommend a separate night cream for just about any sking type.

I switch to a lighter-weight moisturizer at night without SPF, but still use my Murad acne cleanser so I get the benefits of the acne treatment without the weight of the moisturizer.

I do the same thing! I reapply it before my makeup; but i also apply it at night after washing my face to keep my skin hydrated and to absorb it throughout the night. I would recommend once in the morning and once at night.

I would just use this during the day under your make up. Give your skin a chance to breathe.

I don't think so, I typically later on a night moisturizer for extra protection. Nobody sees my oily skin at night.

I tend to do that, just because then I wake up with non-oily skin, plus it seems to clear my skin up a lot.

It is a moisturizer too, but I would think for night time you would want to use a different product. Just my opinion.

I think this is definitely a day time product. I would look for a murad product specifically made for a bedtime routine. Mattifier and spf aren't necessary at night.

I only use it during the day to keep my face matte. I figure that I don't need my face matte at night when I'm going to sleep, but that's me. So I'll typically use the product once a day.

It depends on your skin. I use this during the day, but a heavier cream at night. I need more moisturizer than this alone provides but it works great during the day.
