I’m always on the hunt to find products that cater to my skin type that also works for me. I have acne-prone, oily/combination skin and products that mattify my skin without completely drying it out are always on the checklist. Murad Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++ is my new favorite moisturizer because it does just that. It’s lightweight and helps to absorb oils from my skin. It is like a matte primer…with SPF5 that still provides hydration…basically my new best friend, lol.
Also on my new favorites list is the Murad InstaMatte™ Oil-Control Mask. I wasn’t one to try a lot of masks, or use masks period until I started really paying attention to my skin and her needs (yes, my skin is a she;). This mask perfectly absorbs the oils, firms the surface, and leaves a matte finish. Another great thing about this mask is that it only needs to be on your face for 3 minutes…not 2 hours like most lol. It’s fast acting and the results from the mask last all day!
Pairing these two together are BOMB, especially in the summer for an oily gal like myself. I must confess that I also use a mattifying primer, oil free foundations and set my face, but who doesn’t in this weather? I take many preventative measures when because my I don’t need my pores to be all open, free for oil to seep out and have a party. It’s a no for me, dawg. However, I can say that because I’ve had a steady regimen it’s a FACT that both of these babies improved my skin and attributed to my overall makeup longevity. Most definitely a keeper.
