La Mer Oil Absorbing Lotion Review

Hey guys, so when I bought the Creme de la mer cream, I received a free sample of the La Mer Oil Absorbing Lotion as well. I used it for a little over a week everyday. By the way, I have really oily skin. Yes, I would like to emphasize the REALLY OILY part because it is true. My oil slicks are not just on my T-zone, but they are even on my cheeks at times. Honestly, I have tried just about every oil free mattyifying lotion or primer out there and none of them have worked for me. For the week that I was using the La Mer Oil Absorbing Lotion, I have noticed that my face was matte for a few hours, but gets a little greasy afterward. It usually gets oily when and while I am working because I am moving around a lot and sweating. Point is, my skin is extremely oily and so far this is the best product that has worked for me. It does not keep me completely matte for the entire day, but lasts hours, so if your skin is greasy, but not extremely greasy like mine, I can only imagine how great this product will work for you. It is light, thin, and has not broken me out (which tends to happen with a lot of products). I really wish I had more to use because my sample is all used up. I will most likely purchase the full product soon. I would recommend for anybody who is interested in trying this product to get a sample first, which La Mer does give out. Their products are very luxurious and expensive, so it would be a good idea to get the sample in case you don't like it and waste like $200.

PROS: mattifying for extremely oil skin (for about 5hrs for me), but will probably last the entire day for people with moderate oily skin. very light and silky, no overwhelming scent, feels like nothing on the skin, does not cause breakouts
CONS: very expensive!
