Your t-zone isn't very oily.
Pros: all natural, not tested on animals, great mousse-like texture, blends easily
Cons: little staying power RE: matte skin
I've tried many of the oil control/mattifying lotions/gels (from basic drugstore to department store high end: Covergirl Baby Skin to MAC Prep and Prime to La Mer Matte lotion to online boutiques like Paula's Choice "Shine Stopper"—love the products by La Mer and Paula's Choice, but the oil control items didn't do much at all; —note: Mac Prep and Prime works well if you're not of a very, very oily complexion), and none come close to OC8, which is the holy grail of mattifying gels for anyone with a very oily t-zone. I gave this a shot because I like that it's all natural and it was listed on this professional website. Unfortunately, it did little for oil control (as most of the products I have tried in the past).
