La Roche-Posay Effaclar MAT 40ml
It's taken a long time but finally I've found the perfect moisturiser
I have been struggling with moisturisers for a few years now, i think my skin changed in my late twenties. I have combination skin and every moisturiser i bought left me shiney within an hour, making my foundation slide off my face. I've spent a fortune on foundations, creams, primers and blotting powders. I would have to take blotting powder everywhere with me and continually re-apply to my t-zone. I know this says it is for oily skin, but i have been using it for 2 weeks morning and night and my skin feels soft and smooth and it hasn't dried out my cheeks. It definitely makes a difference with shine, I have ditched the blotting powders now and my make-up lasts a lot longer. I wouldn't say it stops shine completely but it has made a huge difference. I am so impressed i am now buying a lot of the other products in the range including the foundation and hoping that i am equally as impressed. It is a good base for your make-up and you only need a small amount.

Amazing product!! Shame about size
The best moisturiser I have used! I get quite an oily t-zone but with this and other La Roche Posay products my make up doesn't get noticeably shiny anymore. It leaves my skin nice and smooth and the texture is really good and matte! II could also apply make straight onto of it as it is a really good base.
The only problem I have is that it is only 40ml and it doesn't last me very long; only 8-10 weeks. If they did a 100ml bottle it would be perfect!

Feels so high end!
I am recently a new fan of this brand, so I thought I would give this a go since my skin can get quite oily, this really is an amazing daytime moisturiser which protects from any shine. However I wouldn't recommend this for using under makeup even though it says that it is "an excellent makeup base", because I think it's too dry to the point where the foundation will look quite dull and grey, but this is amazing for during the day without makeup. The packaging itself is completely matte which makes it feel really high end.
