In my quest to find a product to banish the unwanted shine on my T-zone .. I got this baby on Cynthia's recco and this works wonders for me .
Just to give you a background on my skin .
I have a fairly oily T-zone and I cant use the regular creams and moisturiser .I have to use calamine and Loreal anti imperfection moisturiser if I have to prevent oil burst out for couple of hours .With this on , I can survive 8-10 hours of beautiful semi-matte skin .
HOW TO APPLY THIS ?
DO NOT apply it like regular cream . It is oil control concentrate not cream. I apply it wherever I am prone to oiliness i.e T-zone .You can use it before or after foundation , completely your choice. I apply it after my TM (if em wearing one) , else after the moisturiser . The nozzle tip allows just enough product to use . With the nozzle tip as a product dispenser , You wont have a chance of wasting it :)
I use it as a substitute for eye primer too . This + little concealer helps the eye make up on me to last much longer . I even tried Rati's Primer remedy (Lotus sunscreen + concealer) and it worked fine too . Though with PMOCC , My eye make up retains longer .
I think its similar to MAC matte, Though I havent tried it . I also had my eyes on Vichy Normaderm pro matte, which is also similar , in my opinion.
Only drawback is the packaging.No, No I love the nozzle tip but the long tube size is rather consumer - unfriendly.You can't fit it in purse and storing it is such a pain .. it has no grip so you gotta store it horizontally :(
Overall .I LOVE this product and would recommend it to combination + oily skinned ladies without apprehensions .The best part is that it is totally affordable at 250 INR (for 50 grams)comparable to MAC Matte (1000-1200) and Vichy Normaderm Pro matte ( around 800-900 ) . I would say YES YES YES to it !
