Having oily, aging skin is the weirdest combination. I don't have a lot of wrinkles, but I'm still getting pimples like a teenager. A lot of the products for clear skin are designed for teens who have young, resilient skin, and can be too harsh for me. But, every once in a while, I come across a product that seems *made* for my particular skin issues, like Michael Todd Mattifying Gel Corrector!
This product is both skincare and makeup. It contains ingredients that control oil production, exfoliate. and moisturize, while leaving my skin with a satin finish that looks great on its own, or as a primer under makeup.
Most of us with oily skin know that we need to control our oil, and how good exfoliation is for our skin. This product has lactic acid for gentle exfoliation, and a patented ingredient with lilac extract to balance oil production. What isn't always emphasized for us is the need to moisturize. Oils provide a barrier on the skin to keep moisture in, but they don't always actually provide moisture - which every skin type needs to look young and healthy. This serum contains Phytomoist to help moisturize the skin, and a blend of vitamins to nourish it.
