Proactiv Daily Oil Control - Review, Photos, Swatches

Troubled with oily skin? You are not alone.

Living in a tropical country, having oily skin is pretty common. I have an oily/combination skin. My problem area is my T-zone (forehead, nose and chin). I also have some dry patches on the sides of my nose and the area on my forehead above my eyebrows, which makes my skin regimen a little more complicated. 

Having an oily T-zone really makes me depend on mattifying powders and oil blotting films. But sometimes, they are not enough. :( Because I also have dry patches, I have to balance out the mattifying products I use with my moisturizers. I recently found a skincare product that would help me with my battle against oiliness.

Proactiv Daily Oil Control is a non-comedogenic, oil-free product that helps in eliminating shine. How does it work? It gently balances the skin's oil levels, without totally stripping out the moisture. It still keeps the skin hydrated and healthy-looking without the shine. It's light, oil-free formula contains ingredients that are specially designed to reduce sebum levels while controlling acne blemishes.

The Proactiv Daily Oil Control is ideal for men and women with oily skin because it controls and balances the oil levels and gives a matte finish after using it. 

What are the benefits of using Proactiv Daily Oil Control?
1. It helps control oil and other impurities that may cause pores to clog.
2. It helps to add moisture to the skin without a greasy feel.
3. It helps control sebum production that can cause skin imperfections.
4. It helps prevent makeup from streaking throughout the day.

How do I use it?
With clean fingertips, I just apply a thin amount on my face after cleansing. But I only apply this on my T-zone. I avoid the areas with dry patches because they will be more apparent once I apply my makeup. Makeup is best applied on clean and moisturized skin, so I only use this on the areas that need oil control. It's gentle on my skin, no stinging at all. It has a clean light scent, almost unnoticeable. It also has a cooling feeling. It dries pretty fast, too. It turns matte a few seconds after application (see last photo below). It really helped in controlling and minimizing the oiliness of my T-zone, saving me from using a lot of oil blotting films daily.

How does it complement the Proactiv 3 Step System?

Just a thin layer of Daily Oil Control reduces excess facial oil and balances your skin's natural oil level to get rid of shine. It also keeps makeup from streaking and helps keep pores from clogging while it hydrates skin, so it's great for your complexion. Directions: Use after Repairing Treatment. Apply a thin layer to entire face with fingertips.

Just so you know, here are the key ingredients of this product:
Decylene Glycol – a highly effective moisturizer and oil controller
Silicone blend – provides a moisture barrier to soften, soothe, and hydrate the skin
Nylon-12 – absorbs excess oil, and provides anti-shine properties

Proactiv Daily Oil Control

PROS: mattifies the skin gently yet effectively, perfect for people with oily skin, doesn't irritate my skin, locally available, complements the Proactiv 3 Step System really well, can be used under makeup

CONS: I won't recommend it on dry patches or people with dry skin, a little pricey


 I will definitely repurchase!
