Clean & Clear recently released a new moisturizer to their skin care line called Clean & Clear Finishes Mattifying Moisturizer. Seeing as how I have oily skin, I rarely find moisturizers that control oiliness. Most people think if you have oily skin, you don't need a moisturizer, but by applying extra moisture to your face, it tells it to stop producing as much oil.
The Clean & Clear Mattifying moisturizer not only mattifies, but is oil-free and has spf 15 uva/uvb sunscreen. It's always nice to find a moisturizer with sunscreen it and it's really important to find one that is oil free, especially if you have oily or acne prone skin.
This is one of the first moisturizers I've found that doesn't break my skin out. I've tried several oil free, for oily skin type of moisturizers before, but for some reason, they also made me more shiny and would break me out.
This product not only doesn't break my face out, but helps control oil. The product boasts that it has all day shine control with super absorbing mineral complex. I haven't really noticed how long it controls the oil because usually after I put my makeup on, my face doesn't get oily again until the end of the day, unless it's really, really hot outside. But I do notice the immediate results of the product. When I first wake up in the morning, my face is so oily it looks I've been sweating. It's really gross. But after I put this on, my face looks very matte and the nasty oil is gone from my face. It also helps makeup apply a bit more easily than if you didn't use a moisturizer before application.
As far as the spf, don't solely rely on this as your only form of sun protection. While having spf15 in the product is a bonus, it still isn't enough to keep your face protected from the sun all day long. However, if you have spf in your moisturizer, foundation and your finishing powder, you can see how this all adds extra protection to your skin in addition to using your normal sunscreen.
This product is priced at around $5 - $9 depending where you purchase it and you receive 1.7oz (48g) in each tube. You can find it most major retailers (walmart, target , etc) and drugstores (cvs, walgreens, rite aide, etc).
Overall, I recommend trying this moisturizer if you have oily to combo skin or perhaps if you have normal skin that tends to get a little shiny during the summer months.
