  • The Details

    Finally, oily skin meets its matte. Developed as the product Ole wishes he had during his own struggle with oily skin, this lightweight, mattifying skin hydrator gives oily and combination skin types the essential moisture they crave. Oily skin needs hydration, too, to look its healthy best.

    This innovative oil control moisturizer is powered by Green Fusion Complex™, a proprietary blend of potent active botanicals—green tea, eucalyptus, algae (kelp) and Irish moss extracts—with natural antiseptic properties. Combined with neem seed oil and powerful alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), it helps keep pores clear and skin matte all day long while maintaining optimal hydration and a healthy balance.

    This groundbreaking oil absorbing moisturizer also significantly improves the wear of foundation for up to 8 hours, making makeup meltdown a thing of the past. The complexion is soft, smooth and refreshed with a healthy-looking, matte Ole Glow™!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I have to say that every product I’ve purchased has been fantastic. This is another great one. It really does what it claims to do. Btw if u haven’t tried their walnut facial scrub/wash,you really need to try it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really controls oil I use the 3 little wonders and it totally changed my 70+ year old sensitive complexion. I do have an oily t zone, so I tried this new one and I really like it. It really makes your skin so soft to the touch right after applying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and does the job! I really enjoyed this hydrator and repurchased it many times. It's lightweight for oily skin, has a very nice smell, and hydrates without any oily or sticky feeling! My only issue was the packaging; it was hard to get all of the product out, and it started to get a little lumpy in the pump. Otherwise, I loved this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps me oil free Usually by lunch time, my T-zone is an oily mess. I have been using this product for about a week now and am very pleased. By the time I get home from work I still do not have any oil on my face! In the winter I also get dry and itchy on my forehead. This still is moisturizing and helps with that too! Has a slight minty scent to it and absorbs quickly so work fast! I currently have the sample/travel size and will definitely consider purchasing the full size bottle.
