Review- clean and clear mattifying moisturizer

So I bought this at target the other day. I have been having super oily skin all of a sudden. I dont know if its a hormone change or what but I needed to get something to help with the oil. So I did my normal routine of washing my face and using my noxzema pads, then I applied the clean and clear.

First thing I don't like is : Its not very moisturizing. It feels like Im putting on a primer that doesn't go on very well.

Second: It also leaves my skin white washed. It doesn't absorb into my skin well at all.

Third: Within about 3 hours I had oily skin and shine. It says it controls the shine all day but in my case it did not :(


So Im very disapointed in this moisturizer and will keep looking for something that will help with the oil/shine.

Hey beautiful! Thanks for the review - I am always on the hunt for a good moisturizer. The first one that I have found that I absolutely love is by Exuviance Age Reverse Day Repair. It is so awesome! They sell it at Ulta & Sephora, but it is def on the pricer side.

@ Mary and Dyer- I would spend a bit more money on a product that did more then just moisturize my skin. Im looking for a good moisturizer that also has the anti aging stuff in it, so Im going to take a look at ulta at the product and see about getting it :) thank you for letting me know. That was sweet.

It sucks that you did not like it but thanks for sharing. My skin has been really oily lately too so at least now I know that I shouldn't get this.

Vicky said...

Oh no :( I just bought a clean & clear facewash myself. It's not the same as this but it's oil free..I hope I get on with it ok!x

I used it, worked for me. Try using mark Matte Chance Mattifying Lotion by Avon. A little pricey so IU recommend getting the mark Plan if Action Oil Control Kit. Get WAY MORE bang for your buck that way
