Great, not greasy.
This really hydrates my skin and keeps the oil down. Just wish it was bigger. I have essential oils in bigger bottles.

Recommend 100% - cleared up acne problems
Tags +Long wearing, acne solution, great aroma, little goes a long way, why couldn't i have found this product years ago
I absolutely love this product. One of the Mac professionals recommended this product when I said I had issues with acne control/oil control and sent me home with a sample. I wish I had before and after photos! I returned days later to purchase this product immediately. Not only has it completely helped clear up any acne issues I had, it leaves my skin clean, soft, and makes a good underlayment for my foundation and makeup (liquid Mac). The one and only wish I have for this product is larger sizes to purchase. I used this product so religiously (morning before makeup application and at night after I remove my makeup - or anytime after a shower) that I need to buy more already, I have already recommended this product to all of my friends and those who purchased it have agreed with my recommendation.

Holy moly this stuff works!
This stuff says it controls oil and it did not disappoint! I used it after my morning skincare regimen and it worked! I used it a few days without any makeup while around the house to see how it would do. I've decided this is my go-to product for under foundation and/or primer to control oil!
I would say it probably isn't so good when used with powder foundations as it will probably be too drying, especially with Studio Fix line, but with the liquid foundations, its the BOMB!!!!

Dried out my skin
This product really dried out my skin and left a few dry patches here and there, which is surprising because I have really oily skin especially T-zone. Since it's winter I paired it with the waterweight foundation which is really moisturizing and a bit oily. Still, it dried out my skin. I gave two stars because I did feel like it was working since my face didn't get as grossly oily as often.

Best product ever!
Tags +Long wearing
I love this product! I bought the travel size but I am for sure going to buy this one because the travel didn't last long. I would highly recommend this for anyone who does have oily skin. The smell of it is pretty good as well.

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.

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!

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.

Hooked on this!
Tags +Non-Oily, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly
I have always used Murad oil control with SPF lotion for my face because I put on foundation and about 3-4 hours later it's so oily and I have to blot. With this literally about 7 hours later I noticed a slight dewy ness to my foundation but not the nasty greasy look! I'm so in love with this! I'm hooked! Definitely worth the money!

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!!

oil control
I am in love with this stuff. Working in the restaurant industry it's hard to find makeup and products that don't slide off your face by three in the afternoon. But this keeps makeup in it's place.

Oliy Skin, extreme oily skin
Tags +light oily skin
I thought this product worked well with my skin when I first purchased it but over time I realized my skin went back to its usual oily outburst. Just wasn't working for my extreme oily skin.

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. I have extremely oily skin and after just a few days of using my New Oil Control Lotion along with my Mineralize Foundation and my Skin Base Primer I could already see the difference in my skin.

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.

Doesn't completely stop the oil, but good enough! Flexible, not sticky. A good primer for under makeup.

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. :)

Money is Worth it!
Tags +Non-Oily, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly, control oil build-up, control shine
I have oily skin. This product works! It stops my oil production on the face and it leaves a soft matte feel after it dries/absorbs into the skin. Never over dries to a flaky feel, I use it during winter and my skin is perfectly fine. When applying; the texture feels light lotion; not thick nor greasy. You don't notice a smell at all! I would recommend this for oily skin and combination - apply on oily areas. I am on my second bottle. It's prefect to apply after a wash, then prime, and your makeup afterwards. No shine all day; might have a hint of dewy around the evening. You can always use a finish powder to matte it. I luv luv LOVE this product! It saved me from embarrassments of shine. Product last me around 4 - 6 months (depend on usages). My money is worth it!

DOES WHAT IT SAYS!!

This OCL is the BOMB!! I don't know why I had not tried it sooner. It works! I use this along with the Prep +Prime Skin Refined Zone. The combination of these two products have made me VERY happy because I now have a shine free face!! I mean the first time I used it, it left me shine free all day! If you are suffering with oily skin, this is your BEST friend!! Try it now!! :)
