A better life for sensitive skin.
Home > Effaclar > EFFACLAR MAT
Oily skin. Suitable for sensitive skin. Oil-free blotting effect texture: Proven long lasting mattifying effect. Non-comedogenic. Tested under dermatological control.

Day after day, acts at the source for a two fold performace anti-shine + anti-enlarged pores. With the exclusive association of :
- Sebulyse , a new sebo-regulating active ingredient more powerful than Zinc, selected for its ability to inhibit sebum production at its source.
- Oil-free texture enriched with absorbent micro-spheres and perlite for matt skin on application.

Moisturizes and mattifies the skin immediately. Day after day skin texture is refined, pores are tightened and sebum production slows down.

Apply morning and/or evening on the whole face. Avoid eye contour. Excellent make-up base.

This "moisturizer" should not be considered a moisturizer at all. It feels like it leaves a film on the skin. Cannot be easily layered under a primer. This IS basically a primer. After it dries, if you rub your face it will flake off this weird residue that's left behind that looks like dead rolled up skin. NO THANKS. I need a moisturizer because washing dehydrates and strips the skin of oils. This made me SO greasy after 30 minutes because it offered no moisture replacement. I wish I kept my receipt :( If you are considering this, I HIGHLY recommend you get a test sample first.

Great for combination skin!!

Amazing product!! I have mostly oily skin, with a few dry patches, but with effaclar mat I can make it through the whole day without getting shiny! And it hydrates too so it's not leaving my problem areas dry and flaky! Great as a primer under makeup!

I purchased this product to battle the effects of sticky, hot, humid summers in Toronto. This completely prevented shiny skin without drying out my combination and acne ridden skin. Will continue to use it, like the other effaclar products, NO COMPLAINTS! My skin is improving!

Game Changer

This is amazing. I went from having to us a 50-pack of blotting papers every 2-2 1/2 weeks to not having to remove the excess shine at all. In the afternoon my skin would get so oily it would hurt and now it feels amazing all day.<br/>Thank you! Can't wait to try more products in this line.

Excellent for mixed skin

I used to have a lot of break outs because all the products I used were not accommodating for mixed skin. Moisturizers made oily parts of skin even more oilier while acne solvants dried out the dryer parts of my skin.<br/><br/>Effaclar Mat balances out my skin so that the oilier parts stay matte and so that the dryer parts stay moisturized. I've probably used this for just a week and a half and most of my breakouts have disappeared and my skin doesn't shine throughout the day anymore.<br/><br/>It's a must try
