    Comments about Boots Expert Shine Control Moisture Cream, 3.3 fl oz:

    I've been looking for a moisturizer to replace my all-time favourite (Clean & Clear Finishes mattifying moisturizer), which has become increasingly hard to find. This isn't it!

    The texture is similar to Clinique's oil-free gel & it goes on nicely but it smells really clinical/medicinal and that was an immediate turn-off.

    It mattifies OK but not all day & it wasn't enough moisture for my cheeks - they were dry after a few days of using this.

    Worth a shot, especially for the price, but I've already replaced it with another moisturizer.

    Comments about Boots Expert Shine Control Moisture Cream, 3.3 fl oz:

    I have combination skin so when I use any other moisturizer i wind up looking shiny. This leaves a nice matte finish which is great. It could moisturize a little better and it has a little bit of a residue, but nothing too terrible.

      I work in an office and my face always feels greasy from the overhead florescent lights. I bought this in the hopes it would cut the shine, however I haven't found it to be helpful.

      Light shine control, nice moisturizer

      Pros

      • Absorbs Quickly

      • Not Greasy
      • Softens Skin

      Cons

      • Not Long-Lasting

      Best Uses

      • Light moisturizer

      Comments about Boots Expert Shine Control Moisture Cream, 3.3 fl oz:

      The shine control only lasts about 2 hours but it is a nice light moisturizer. If you are going for something to control heavy-duty oil and shine, this isn't it, but if you want a light, non-greasy day moisturizer with light shine control it would be a good choice. It is a nice size bottle and a little goes a long way so it is definitely a good value.

        Comments about Boots Expert Shine Control Moisture Cream, 3.3 fl oz:

        This has actually reduced the shine on my forehead, which is great. I don't use it everyday, so I can't speak about its long-term claims. Although, when I touch my face, I can see the oil on my fingers; yet when I look in the mirror, my forehead has a rather matte appearance.
        It may be a little pore-clogging though. Too soon to decide. But so far great.

          This finally solved my problem with having shiny skin. Althought i am not sure how long it lastes. I am overall, satisfied. Sometimes i would last the day without having shiny skin but sometimes by the end of the school day ... i would feel pretty greasy. It has improved my control though.

            I have been searching a LONG time for a good product to replace my no longer available Biore Shine Control moisturizer. (WHY Biore??? WHY discontinue such a great product???) It isn't QUITE as lite as the Biore was... but it is a good substitute.

            It is hard to find something light enough for combination skin and this seems to do the job. The fragrance is light and not annoying. It absorbs quickly and seems to control the shine pretty well. I will purchase again.

            I usually use Clinique T-Zone shine control for during the day, which has always been my favorite. I bought this product for nighttime use (and to save money) as my skin is oily and I don't like waking up with a shiny face. I am impressed. It was so inexpensive and worked well that I will continue to buy and use this product. It leaves a light matte finish. I use it at least twice a day after washing my face and before applying make-up. It has save lots of money on expensive cosmetic products and does a great job.

            Comments about Boots Expert Shine Control Moisture Cream, 3.3 fl oz:

            I have oily skin. I've tried products that cost up to and over $40 and have never found anything that suits my needs, which is to have my face remain oil and shine free all day long. Not even the most expensive products I have tried works. This product, as cheap as it is, does a fairly good job. I find that if I apply it again mid day, then I can get through my work day mostly shine free. I'll recommend this one because it's very cheap and does a fairly good job of absorbing the oil on my face. I'd give it 5 stars if it would simply last all day.
