Murad Oil Control Mattifier

Murad Oil Control Mattifier
Hello My Gorgeous Readers
I believe you have been well and today I have a review of Murad Oil Control Mattifier with SPF15  for you guys. It claims to protect skin while providing all day oil control.

What it is:
A shine-reducing moisturizer that controls oil for up to eight hours, decreases breakouts, and protects skin.

What it is formulated to do:
Oil-Control Mattifier
reduces shine on contact and is clinically proven to control oil for up
to eight hours while effectively reducing breakouts. It immediately
mattifies, regulating oil throughout the day, and prevents sun damage by
delivering powerful UVA/UVB sun protection. It is ideal for acne-prone
skin and is recommended as a step three moisturizer in any Murad acne
regimen, while eliminating surface shine and reducing breakouts as part
of Dr. Murad’s Inclusive Health® system of care. 

My Experience:
I purchased this deluxe sample of the product to try and test it before spending large amount on the full sized product. It a part of Murad Acne solution kit and comes in little white tube. The texture of Murad Oil Control Mattifier is a bit thick and gluey may be that’s the reason its a bit difficult to spread. Once its spread properly it works like a charm it keeps my Oily T-Zone matte for very good period of time sometimes I just use it as a moisturizer and it works fine. It has some sort of weird smell to it but it does not bother me at all.  Over all its one great product for maintaining oil control and acne problems.

Its a bit expensive $40 for 1.7OZ and can be purchased from Sephora tell me have you tried this one?

Aiken Spot Away Facial Cleanser!


I have almost finished this tube of Aiken Spot Away Facial Cleanser & its time that I write a quick little review about it.  Aiken is a Brand of Unza & that’s all I know about it because we don’t have Aiken brand officially distributed in Pakistan. Lets get on with the review I got it from Naheed Super store for Rs: 320 something for 100 grams. Purchased it because it has got tea tree oil in it, you all must be aware of the healing & amazing powers of tea tree oil. Thank God I don’t have acne prone skin but it sure is combination (oily) so I always am in the search for good oil controlling products. Today I am reviewing Aiken Spot Away Facial Cleanser as oil controller not as a  pimple remover. Let’s get on with the review, shall we?

L’Oreal Hydrafresh Anti Shine Icy Gel!


Hello Dear Readers 

I believe you have been well. 
Today I am going to review my newly discovered moisturizer L’Oreal Hyderafresh Anti Shine Icy Gel. This product claims to hydrate & mattify oily skin at the same time so I had to try it.
Product Claims:
This Icy gel contains deep marine source water enriched in minerals
to improve skin moisture and help prevent water loss. Enriched in Zinc,
known for its powerful sebum regulating properties, this Icy gel helps
to bring shine control. The formula also contains micro-sponges that
help to absorb the excess of sebum for immediate and long term matify.
Dermatologically tested on Asian skin.  Results, immediately skin is
cooled down, durably matifies and quenched for all day. Day after day
skin gets rid of shininess and pores are clear and tightened. Skin is
smooth and evened out. Full of moisture, it is “water-bouncy” and looks
healthier like “water transparent.”
My Experience:
I have been using this for about two weeks now & I can say that after Ponds Flawless White Day cream (Review here) I really like this one. This is one affordable moisturizer perfect for summers I got mine from Naheed Super Store for PKR 650.
 It has gel like texture, very light easy to wear keeps my skin hydrated & my Oily T-Zone Matte. It gets absorb into skin very quickly, gives instant ice-y felling & has got cucumber-y smell to it which I like. I did not encounter any kind of break outs with its usage plus it didn’t make my make up melt.
Things I dislike about this product;
1. Packaging the gel comes in a heavy jar which makes it Unhygienic & not suitable for traveling.
2 . It does not stay put for long time keeps my face matte just for three hours.
I would not recommend it if you have dry skin & I don’t believe that I will be needing this one in winters but its perfect for summers. Purchase it if you want a good quality affordable moisturizer for oily skin.

Garnier Oil Control Fairness Cream!

Garnier Light Oil Control Fairness Cream

Hello Readers!

Here I am with another product review and this time its Garnier Oil control Fairness Cream. I may be the last person on the planet earth to try this but anyways =p
Here is Product Claim:
If you have an oily and dull skin with acne marks. Now you can fix them
all. Garnier light oil control fairness cream makes your skin fairer,
visibly lighten acne marks and reduces excess oil. Perfectly clarified,
your skin is mattified up to 8 hours. Its unique formula combines
selected active ingredients:
  • Pure Lemon Essence to clarify the skin and help remove dullness. 
  • Oil – Trapping Technology to help reduce excess oil and control sebum for an 8 hours shine free look.

Its ultra light texture is non
greasy, non sticky and absorbs quickly into the skin for an all day
comfort and shine free look. Use Garnier whenever possible, carefully
extracted nature-based active ingredients. Garnier products are
dermatologically tested for their tolerance and efficacy of products is

My Experience:
Garnier Oil Control has got Moose like texture and I find it hard to apply as it gets absorbed too quickly. Be careful, don’t apply it again and again your face will become flaky. The cream is ultra light textured perfect for summers it has got lemony fragrance which pretty much stays in the tube.
 Garnier oil control has got perfect formula & it keeps my T- Zone matte. Another good thing about it is that it contains SPF 15 which could be recommended for day use. I did not experience any breakout with its usage but it does not last up to 8 hours that’s total exaggeration of facts it lasts for three to four hours on me. As far as the fairness is concerned I did not notice any significant effects on my skin. Therefore I recommend you to use it only to get shine free face not fair face.

I have mine in 40ml tube which is priced at PKR 199 there is another one 20ml priced at PKR 99. Good product worth a try…
