redness relief

i received this sample and have used it once today and i'm in love already, it makes my skin so soft and i applied my foundation on top which felt good, it's already reduced my oil

definitely helps reduce the look of large pores while controlling oily skin and smells wonderful

Great for oily and sensitive skin

Best moisturizer for sensitive and oily skin. It feels lightweight and pleasant.I use this with Peter Thomas Roth Skin to Die for Mattifying Primer and Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Liquid Face Sunscreen SPF 50. I can't believe how great my face looks all day! My skin stays matte, and the products are not heavy, even when layered. No break-outs or irritation at all.

Most favorite product

This was originally called Clear Difference Oil Control Hydrator and I LOVE it for oily skin. I have all my teens using it for acne control. I panicked when they changed the name and I thought they'd discontinued it!

Only for incredibly oily skin!

I am not a fan. I have combination skin with a tendency for a bit of extra oil in some areas and this dried my skin out on a fantastically bad level. It felt nice going on and ten minutes later I was parched - I actually had to rinse off any residue and put on something entirely different. This is 100% only for people who have very (!), very oily skin and even then I feel like I'd like to see it work before believing it. Also smells a bit more chemically than their normal Day Wear, which has that lovely light cucumber scent.

Miracle Worker

I have very oily and acne prone skin and I've struggled to find a moisturizer that did not make my face even more greasy. Most of the moisturizers that I've tried made my foundation slide off after my makeup application. That is until I found Daywear Matte! This moisturizer has been amazing for my skin! It reduces shine all day long while keeping my skin supple and hydrated. It's helped my makeup stay in place but without any added shine. My pores look smaller too! I love this moisturizer and will definitely make this a part of my everyday routine!

Really helps control oil!

I love this stuff for very oily/combination skin! It's very light and absorbs quickly with a nice cucumber scent. I normally have to blot my face two hours after washing/applying foundation, but with this moisturizer, I can go 5 hours. Hasn't irritated my acne prone skin a bit, will definitely keep repurchasing.
