Love this stuff! Needed a moisturizer that would help my oily/combo skin & saw this on Sephora. I was a little thrown off by the price, but decided the splurge was worth it for skin care. I'm so glad I did! I use this morning & night. I've read some reviews using it as a primer, that's not really I how I use it. I use this and if I'm feeling like a primer that day I'll use another one on top. Love it! Makes my skin baby smooth and really keeps my oil at bay. Highly recommend :)

Update: if price is an issue for you (alone it's $30), Sephora has a set of products in red tubes like this one & you get a full size of this & other skin care products for $48 :)

This product is really good it's a little on the expensive side I buy mine from Sephora and I have acne prone skin and it's also oily and I've been having this problem since I hit puberty and it's been a real struggle and I'm in my mid-20s now but I'm finally starting to get it under control and this product makes my skin feel amazing. I feel like my a little bit tighter not very much but I definitely feel like my pores are getting smaller and it just leaves my face feeling silky smooth and a little bit brighter or maybe that's just because it's taking the dull skin off but I definitely have this in full size and will keep it in my routine

I do not like this product very much on its own, but I have still found many used for it mixed with other products. It makes other face products easier to spread on the skin and longer lasting. I like to mix 1/2 Laura Mercier radiance primer, 1/4 CoverFX foundation (which is full coverage but not the easiest to blend out) and 1/4 FAB Mattifying Gel. For me this makes the perfect glowy light-medium coverage foundation with a natural skin finish. If you haven't tried mixing this with your other products, you are missing out! It seems to mix well with anything I have tried so far. (Bonus, it's going to last forever).

I have been using this for a few months now and have nothing but great things to say about it! I love, love LOVE it! That being said, it is not at all marketed for what it does. It is so much more than a mattifying gel. It has antioxidants to protect your skin from environmental factors (free radicals), also skin identical ingredient, Niacinamide which does great things for your skin all around, it is similar to retinol, it helps shrink pores, but it will also help anti-aging. Great product all the way around, highly recommend!

I got a sample of this moisturizer from Sephora last week since I was looking for something for oily skin. I have used this product as a primer before applying makeup and I've worn it alone and it does not make my skin matte!!! I still look shiny which is not the look I'm going for when I'm already shiny lol however it does moisturize my skin which is why I rated 3 stars. Maybe this product would for combination skin but if you're strictly oily like me then I wouldn't recommend this

This product feels great on the skin but you will not notice a consistent matte finish until you use it few a little while. I also wanted to use this as a treatment prior to applying my makeup, almost to replace a primer, but foundation (at least neither of my foundations) does not apply smoothly with this product even after letting this product dry. I do love it as a treatment before sleep now and I have (after about a week and a half) noticed a continued matte finish to my skin.

I have incredibly oily skin (gross I know). One of the Sephora girls recommended this to me because I told her that I get super oily and primers make me break out really bad. She said this doubles as a primer and it wouldn't clog my pores. This product has been a miracle for me. I BARELY get oily throughout the day. It hasn't caused any problems for my skin which is amazing. I highly recommend this!

I use this as my morning moisturizer and it works great! It is light weight, helps prevent oil, and you only need a small amount so the tube lasts a long time. I have oily acne prone skin and I would recommend this to anyone with the same skin type. I pair it with urban decay deslick setting spray and rarely ever get oily throughout the day!

Review for: First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue OilFree Mattifying Gel 2 oz
My face for some reason is incredibly oily and no matter how much I tried to keep it under control nothing helped.
Until I found this lotion! It leaves my face really soft and keeps it matte almost all day! Get a sample from sephora and try it for a week or so because a little goes a long way with this product.

I love this! While it's not exactly a moisturizer, it does keep me matte all day. It's a little pricey for the size if I'm honest, especially since I have to use a moisturizer under it, but overall this is a very good product if you have more oily skin or if it's the summertime. I would buy this again.

Is this worth the price? I have oily, acne prone skin and have heard that gel products are really good for your skin, but I don't know if I can bring myself to spend $30 on a moisturizer. Does it actually minimize pores and oil?

I've read that this actually causes more oil and isn't Mattifying. I love the cleanser but would like some insight before purchasing this gel. Does this actually help with oil prevention?
