Q: How do you stop this from pilling when anything is applied over it ?? I have tried several sunscreens, including La Roche-Posay, and everything pills...

submitted by quentinsmom - 3 years ago
  • A: We are so sorry to hear about the issue you are having with your new product. At times, if this very hydrating moisturizer is layered under or over another hydrating skincare product that has not fully absorbed into skin, it can cause the moisturizer to ball up or “pill”. To help avoid this, we recommend allowing the first product you apply in your skincare routine to fully dry and absorb into skin until it feels dry to the touch before layering on the next product. We would love to be able to provide further information and recommendations for your specific issue - please feel free to call La Roche-Posay's Customer Care Center at 800.946.4459 M-F 9a-5:30p ET and provide the ref #18477766 so that we can best assist you.

Q: Is this vegan and cruelty free?

submitted by WatchDominion - 4 years ago
  • A: Hi there - Thank you for reaching out. The L'Oréal Group, which includes La Roche-Posay, has always made our consumers’ health and safety an absolute priority. As is the support of animal welfare. L’Oréal has developed a very rigorous safety evaluation procedure of its products, backed by research. Well before the question of animal testing was raised by civil society or within a regulatory framework, L’Oréal has been committed to new methods of assessing safety that don’t involve animals. A true pioneer, L'Oréal has been reconstructing human skin models in laboratories to elaborate invitro safety tests since 1979, as an alternative to animals. In 1989, L’Oréal completely ceased testing its products on animals, 14 years before the regulation required so.

Q: Does this product protect against the sun at all? If so, what is the SPF?

submitted by myvatn - 4 years ago

Advanced protection absorbs pore-clogging oil, even in heat and humidity, and won't cause breakouts.

I applied this on a freshly cleaned dry face and there was immediate burning and redness. I thought it would go away after a minute or so but after 30 minutes I decided to wash it off my face. Now my entire face is inflamed and irritated, and it looks like I have a mild sunburn on my cheeks!!!! USE WITH CAUTION.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love all of the company's products. This one in particular, is over priced for the size. I paid about the same price for the another facial moisturizer that was more in volume. I would definitely love to see this Mat moisturizer in a little bigger size for about the same price as the other moisturizer.

I have only used twice so far, but I love this moisturizer! I have combination skin, and this seems to make it less oily throughout the day and you do not need a lot to get good coverage. Will be using this as one of my moisturizers from here on out!

It has only been a few days of using this product. I have very oily and very sensitive skin and this product has worked well for me. The oiliness that typically surfaces a few hours after washing has not appeared. It leaves my skin feeling soft and has not given me any breakouts. I'm still waiting to see a difference in pore size but overall a very good moisturizer.

I have struggled with incredibly oily skin and acne my entire adult life (I’m 37). This stuff is Heaven sent! Before finding this product only a few weeks ago, my face was oily no matter what I did or what I used, even with the help of dermatologists. It would be oily within a half hour and I’d be total oil all day. Like ALOT of oil. Constant oil absorbing pads and compacts. I somehow stumbled upon this gem and I can’t believe how much this works! I no longer need to freshen my face up at all during the day, up until I wash at night. No more oil absorbing pads or compacts! My make up stays in place and no oil!! I LOVE this! My only wish is the bottle is a bit larger for the same price. It’s very expensive for the size you’re getting, which is why I deducted one star.

Good Moisturizer, Insane Price

3 out of 5 stars
Chris - 5 months ago, Verified purchaser
I enjoy how this moisturizer makes my face feel and I enjoy how this moisturizer smells; however, I thought the price was a little steep for how much you get AND the price has gone up by $8 since I last bought it 2 months ago in October! $44 for only 1.35oz is crazy. Would be 5 star for me if it wasn't for the insane price hike of 22%

It's sad that this product is only available for 50ml. Too little. And I do not see any improvement for my skin for using this moisturizer. Maybe because this is my first time using moisturizer. As I have oily skin I am not a fan of moisturizers. Not bad though.

I liked it at first- not greasy. After a few times of using it, I noticed white shavings on my face. I thought it was a serum I used. I only used this and rubbed my face once it dried. It pilled every where. Not worth the money.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Good morning, so far, I haven't had any issues with the moisturizer. I do have strong oily skin, but so far, I feel good after applying the moisturizer, I would recommend to drink allot of water, stay hydrated, wash your face before going to bed, and basic facials are good, try to get a facial once a month or every two months. But I am happy with the product.

Might not work for the Truly Oily

3 out of 5 stars
bibbity - 7 months ago
originally posted on laroche-posay.us
If you have truly oily skin, this probably won’t work for you. After awhile, my face is oilier than if I’d used my normal face lotion (just cerave). I think it’s because my skin overcompensates for the lack of moisturizing and it makes me extremely oily. I used this for several months and my skin never adjusted. It does feel really nice when I put it on though—very matte. If you have more normal-to-oily skin, this might still work for you.

Hi Mikeyyyb. Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding Effaclar Mat Mattifying Moisturizer for Oily Skin. Sometimes during the filling process, because of the thickness of the product, air spaces may occur which could create the appearance of an underfill. Our products are filled by weight and it is our policy to slightly overfill to accommodate for this situation.
