At first, the moisturizer absorbs into skin very well, but after a few hours it makes my skin feel a bit too sticky. I have combination skin and actually prefer the traditional Follain moisturizer. Will not repurchase.
This moisturizer is amazing. It feels light and airy going on and really does make my face less oily throughout the day. I also struggle with acne still and this helps with that as well. Thank you Follain for making beauty products that are both safe and effective. It’s game-changing!
best moisturizer I've ever used!
Controls oil, hydrates, and anti-aging!
I’m very pleased with the Mattifying Moisturizer for combination to oily skin that I received complimentary from Follain. I have combination skin with a rather oily T-zone. This product has provides great oil control and excellent hydration. The gel cream formula is light and absorbs quickly with no oily sheen or greasy feel. My skin feels soft and looks better. My T-zone no longer reflects light! I love that Follain Mattifying Moisturizer is dermatologist-tested, non-GMO, cruelty-free, vegan, non-toxic, and gluten-free. It has quality ingredients that really help my skin like Bakuchiol (a non-irritating alternative to Retinol) and a Peptide Complex shown to smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles. I have tried quite a few moisturizers and this one really addresses all of my wants and needs.
Nice moisturizer without the sticky feeling!
*Received complimentary from Follain but my review is all my own.*
I have been using this moisturizer for about a week now and it has given me some good results so far. I have the most oily skin but with this moisturizer it gives me a non-greasy after look when I apply it. I also apply this moisturizer before applying my sunscreen and makeup, making it look smooth and healthy. I would totally recommend this moisturizer for anyone out there struggling with finding a moisturizer that doesn’t leave you feeling or looking greasy after!
gifted by Follain
Gifted by Following. I absolutely love follain matifying moisturizer. I was able to use it on my face before applying makeup and did not have to use primer. It goes on silly smooth and is not sticky or thick. It left my face feeling so soft and smooth. It left my face smooth and oil free all day long.
Such a great matte moisturizer!
Follain gifted me this Mattifying Moisturizer. I’ve never used or heard of this brand prior to using this moisturizer, but I looked them up and was so impressed to find out how clean their products are!
Most of the time our skin may dry out when we use a product because they often contain synthetic fragrance or ingredients that make them last longer on the shelf. HOWEVER, @Follain ensures that every ingredient in their product is safe for our health and is NOT linked to cancer.
As a gal with oily combo skin, I was so excited to try this moisturizer. I wish I had discovered this during the summer when my skin was an oily mess every single day. Although it has a runny and serum-like consistency, this moisturizer definitely gives a VERY mattifying finish like it claims to do.
I was afraid that a mattifying finish wouldn’t be moisturizing enough so the first day I used it, I topped it off with squalane oil. I realized that that wasn’t necessary though. The moisturizer really delivers that hydration and absorbs beautifully into the skin.
My skin feels so bouncy after using this moisturizer. It really preps my skin for makeup! And even though there is a mild scent, it’s a pleasant & non-synthetic one.
I haven’t broken out at all since I started using this moisturizer and I definitely do see myself purchasing this again in the future after I’m done with this bottle. I do wish that it contained brightening ingredients so that it’ll lighten my acne scars though.
This Mattifying Moisturizer: Oil Control was gifted by Follain for my honest review, but all opinions are my own. This Oil Control Moisturizer is definitely one of the thinner moisturizers I own. It does spread evenly and absorb quickly. While it doesn’t have any added fragrance, it does have an odd scent that almost reminds me of white school glue. My skin is mostly normal with some areas that can get a little dry and some that get a little oily (mainly my T-Zone). This moisturizer is supposed to help mattify oily areas and I think it definitely helps with that. I do notice a matte appearance to my skin after using. This moisturizer still leaves my skin feeling hydrated and isn’t greasy or sticky.
fantastic for breakout prevention
The first month I used this, my skin was glowing like nothing else. After a week, it brought down my breakouts to a few isolated pimples, which I havent had in years. Regardless of what cleanser you use (mine are relatively light), this helped balance my skin and keep it breakout free. I’ve even stopped using my expensive toner and other products to really simplify my routine.
As a guy, I don’t spend too much time on my daily routine, and don’t use makeup to correct or cover up my skin. It’s been 6 months, and I rely on this product, a light cleanser, and the eye cream here to keep my skin looking clear. Its the easiest process I’ve had to achieve smooth, balanced skin.
I will say this is great in’spring and summer in hot humid climates, but if you are in a dry and cold climate, would recommend putting another layer on top of this for full day moisturization.
such a great find
I received this moisturizer complimentary from Follain . I absolutely love the light weight feel of it on my skin. Living in Texas where it’s still very warm my skin needs hydration that won’t be too heavy and this is a perfect fit. I also find it’s great under my masks because usually I sweat a lot while wearing a mask and what skincare I do have on would normally cause a breakout . This is mattifying and has skin resurfacing ingredients in it which I find help to limit my breakouts .
I was gifted this product complimentary from follain. All opinions are my own. For reference I have oily/combo skin. To start off I liked the packaging. It’s small and has a convenient pump. What attracted me most about this moisturizer is that it contains AHA And BHAs which can help resurface the skin. It’s also cruelty-free and vegan with clean ingredients. I have been using this at night and the lotion has a nice consistency. It absorbs easily into the skin and it feel light weight. It didn’t make my skin look shiny. I also have been using it in the morning before makeup to test it’s oil control claims. This did provide hydration without making me overly greasy but I didn’t notice any oil control which was a let down. I haven’t been using it long enough to see the results of the AHA/BHA. Overall this doesn’t do the job of combating my overly oily skin but doesn’t make it worse either. I will continue to use this in my daily skin care regime
Great product but too little of it
I really liked this moisturizer for my oily, acne prone skin. Unfortunately, there is just not enough product. I used the entire bottle in less than a month using about 3/4 of a pump in the morning and evening. If there was more product, I would purchase again, but unfortunately it’s just not cost effective.
good product overall!
I do think this a great matifying moisturizer, and does all as advertised! only giving it 4 stars because of a slight chemical-ish smell that I don’t love
Great for acne-prone combination skin
While I liked Follian’s original moisturizer, I LOVE this one. It’s far more suited to my skin type. It’s light and smooth, after putting it on I immediately feel like I can throw on some make-up — or go without! It doesn’t feel oily at all and hasn’t clogged my pores like other moisturizers often do.
My Holy Grail Moisturizer!
I finally found the perfect moisturizer for my oily, yet dehydrated, acne-prone, sensitive skin! I can’t believe how beautiful my skin looks using this daily- smooth & plump, yet a nice base for foundation. It is rare to find my skin looking so balanced and not irritated. I also love that it does not have phenoxyethanol since it irritates my skin. Great gem and must-have for my skincare arsenal!
I love this stuff
my sister randomly gave me this and omg. I love it!!!!! SO good!
I have struggled with acne and oily skin and this moisturizer is amazing! It is very hydrating without making my skin feel oily. It goes on very thin and moisturizes perfectly.
As someone with oily skin, I have always been apprehensive about using moisturizers, fearing that they will just add to the oil and congestion on the surface of my skin. However, Follain’s Mattifying Moisturizer, especially when paired with the Balancing Cleanser, reduces the oil and shine while also providing deep nourishment that my skin needs. I also really like how this product dries matte and it has a really light, nice feel to it!
New Favorite from Follain!
I’ve been a fan of the original Follain Moisturizer for quite a while now (I’m on my third bottle), but I must say, this is a new favorite for summer. It goes on almost like a serum, but still provides plenty of moisture. Definitely my new summer moisturizer staple!
Love how quickly this absorbs into my skin for a nice matte finish, but still adds a beautiful glow to my overall complexion. Sits so well under any SPF or make-up and is perfect going inot the summer months!
