Murad Oil Control Mattifier SPF 45

People that suffer from acne are often cautious about using moisturisers, but hydration is key for healthy looking skin. Try a product like Murad’s Oil Control Mattifier if you have fears about appearing too shiny. The lightweight silky gel-cream formula has a velvet-finish on the skin and works to minimise pore visibility thanks to its ‘oil-trapping microspheres’. It gives you up to ten hours of shine-free hydration and contains Avocado and African Yellow Wood Bark extracts so over time you’ll become less prone to breakouts. Plus it contains high levels of SPF, so you’ll be protected from the sun too.
