Can Anyone Recommend A Good Matte Moisturizer?

3 posts in this topic

I use Olay Sensitive Beauty Fluid at the moment which took me awhile to find because nearly all other moisturizers clogged my pores/ broke me out. However it makes me look greasy and although I dont mind this at night when my skin needs extra moisture because I use all my drying products at night. I need a matte moisturizer to use under my makeup because using the Olay during the day is making my makeup slide off and have that oil slick look. My skin is oily but not overly.

Any suggestions? Much appreciated.

Currently Using: First Aid Beauty Deep Cleanser, First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Liquid Recovery, Paulas Choice 2.5% BP, Olay Sensitive Beauty Fluid.

Extras: Paulas Choice 10% AHA & Paulas Choice 2% BHA.

Failed: Duac, Differin, Bactrim, Tetracycline, Doxycycline.

Acne status: Clear on chin and forehead except for pigmentation. Working on closed comedones around nose, top lip, upper cheeks and overall skin texture.

If light and dewy, almost barely there, is what you're looking for. I'm a big fan of the Body Shop Aloe Serum with a lightweight primer over it.
