MOST AMAZING OIL CONTROL EVER
Tags +Non-Oily, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly, minimizing oil
I have had a very oily face since puberty, I have decided to try this oil control lotion, and I am glad that I did!! My t-zone is a problem area for me, as it gets oily fast. I wash my face morning and night with frequent oil blotting sheets during the day... Since using this lotion, my face literally remains matte from the morning when I first apply it, until I wash my face before bed. I will never go without this lotion again. Thank you MAC!!

Smooth, Balanced, Baby-Soft Skin
Tags +Non-Oily, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly, normal-to-oily, oily, combination, humidity
This is one of my favorite moisturizers, and not just for oily skin. It absorbs super quickly, leaves no film or residue behind, and makes my skin feel very soft and smooth. I love that it balances out my combination-oily skin so that I don't get as shiny in my t-zone but I still feel hydration on the outer parts of my face. I use this as my daytime moisturizer and I can start applying my primer and foundation immediately after it. Three pumps is the perfect amount for my whole face.

love this product
Tags +Non-Oily, oil control.
am i the only one who noticed you can buy two of the travel size for $30 and get (total) 2fl oz.. or you could buy reg size for $30 and get 1.7fl oz.. i think i'm reading that right.. the better deal is buying the two? if i'm wrong, someone correct me.
this product does what it says, i have super oily skin.. and it controls it all day.. love it, won't live without it.

Shine be gone
Tags +Non-Oily, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly, oily skin, acne-prone skin
i love love love this moisturizer. I'm extremely oily and wth mostmoisturizers ive tried they have either burned my face, or have just not worked. without this lotion my makeup gets shiny and comes right off.
Since i've gotten this lotion ive noticed a huge difference in my face when i have makeup on. my face says matte longer and im able to go through the day without worrying about powdering my face.

Oil No More
Tags +Non-Oily, Lightweight, moisturizing face
So I bought this moisturizer because I lost the one I normally use and I was getting ready to go out of town. Normally I have oily skin in my t-zone and sometimes my cheeks but that is now a thing of the past. This product is remarkable because I have tried so many different products and i figured there was nothing I could do about the oiliness. My skin looks so natural and I am so pleased. And know when I get home I dont feel like my face is weighed down because I still have make-up on... I would suggest at least trying it. Please keep in mind I live in the humidity of Houston, TX.

Finally!!
Tags +Non-Oily, Oil control
I am a 44 year old who has had to deal with VERY oily skin all my life. I have looked high and low for something that controlled the oil even a little bit. I have used this product for years and, to be honest, I dont care if it was $100 I would find a way to get it. This is the BEST product on the market for oil control.....Thanks Mac

Love the oil control
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly, dry skin
I got this to wear because when I moved to SoCal, my make-up decided to move too... down my face, in the heat.
I put this on in the morning (I nix the moisturizer when I'm using this product), my make-up stays where I put it, all through the day. It doesn't matter what you throw at it, running around at work, on errands, running after the kids. Layer what you will over it, it stays. Foundation, powder, blush, bronzer... it all sticks.
Having sensitive skin, prone to breakouts and redness (i'm over 30), this puts a stop to the embarrassing moments when the make-up starts to slide and blemishes bloom.
If I were on a desert island, these would be one of the things I'd bring.

Not for me :(
I have extremely oily skin and this product just doesn’t seem to cut it with controlling the oil but it does have a great scent and serves as a good moisturizer but that’s about all.

A Must for kit and Personal Use!
Tags +Non-Oily, Absorbs quickly
I have combination skin-T zone oily-and Mac's Oil Control lotion solves the problem for me. I do still have to "powder my nose" mid day, but this is definitely a must have for my kit and me! I'm truly happy with this product.

BEST Oil Control Product I Have Used!
Tags +Non-Oily, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly, controlling oil, great makeup base
This is hands-down the BEST Oil-Control product I have ever used! I get very oily in my T-Zone and would normally have a really shiny face about two hours after I had applied my make-up. I ordered this product and have only been using in for three days but it WORKS! I can go at least six hours without any powder touch-ups.
My skin is very sensitive and breaks out easily but I have not noticed any acne flair-ups.
This product is lightweight, absorbs quickly, perfect for oily skin. I will DEFINITELY be re-purchasing!!

It's pretty good.
Tags +Lightweight
Brought this about a week ago and it's been working so far...okay. My skin is very oily and when I apply it, it goes on smooth, absorbs great. But only after a few hours the shine starts to be noticeable. It's a good oil absorber but not for long wear use.

Amazing
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Skin brightening, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly
I went to the MAC store a few days ago and I asked the lady at the counter what she would recommend because I had no idea what I wanted. She asked me what my skin type was and I said oily in some spots and dry in others. Well she put this on my skin and it didn't feel cakey. I love this and I use it every day now. It really helps with oily AND DRY skin (:
It's also actually clearing up my acne too!
Will continue to purchase this!

Great for oily skin
Tags +Long wearing, oil control shine control oily skin
After wasting money on orher "shine control" and "oil control" products I can say I finally found one that works. I start each day off with this lotion. And it actually lasts. The area around my nose gets super oily and this helps control it.

This lotion has improved my skin tone after only a few days of use. Amazing!!! I had the most uneven blotchy skin tone. Not anymore! It also helps my makeup to stay matte throughout the day. I'm so happy with my purchase!!!

Noticed no difference.

I have very oily skin and was hoping this lotion would be 'the one'. Nope. The lotion is very light and feels good on my skin but no oil control and that's what I need the most.

Great for Combo/Oily Skin
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Skin brightening, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly, prepping before primer
I have combo/oily skin and this works like a miracle. It helps control my oily skin and hydrates the rest of my face. It doesn't make my face tight or dry and of course doesn't make my face greasy. It's very lightweight and absorbs quickly, it works great under primer as well. :)

Was skeptical at first but this product really works! It's been over 6 hours and my face is still matte and oil free and I was sweating a bit today and this helped my makeup stay put. Would buy again!

You get what you pay for.
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Skin brightening, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly
This product is a staple in my collection. I put it on after I put on my SPF and it makes my skin so matte, smooth, and ready for makeup application. I barely have to blot throughout the day when I use this.
The only downfall of this product is the price.
You are getting more bang for your buck though with the 50 ml!
Defiantly recommend!!

Just what I needed
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly, prepping face for make up application
Like alot of people I have super oily skin, that makes wearing makeup somewhat challenging. I would change foundation types and try primers and powders and setting techniques that still left me shiny and greasy by 3pm. When I went to buy a new foundation I was discussing my issues with the Mac Consultant and she told me something that I thought didn't make any sense; my skin is oily cause it's super dry. WHAT? If my skin was super dry then all of this oil production should take care of it. Or so I thought. She asked me what moisturizer I used and I admitted none. She said I needed to moisturize because my skin was over compensating with oil production. And to think I had been using a toner trying to get rid of the oil. She sold me the oil control lotion and I was somewhat skeptical. PLUS it's 30 bucks for what seems to be a small bottle. But it works! I have less oily skin, my make up isn't wiping off on everything and creasing. Thumbs up!
