OC8 Professional Mattifying Gel Review

Before I begin to wear makeup I want to make sure I prime my face. As you have read several times on here I am an oil slick and if I don't wear a primer or some type of mattifying product, my makeup will just slide right off. I received this sample in a Birchbox and put off using it. Well I put it off no longer and tried it...and I love it!

The OC8 Professional Mattifying Gel does just that, gives me a matte finish for a good 8 hours. This gel is clinically proven to keep you shine free for 8 hours! The consistency is like a moisturizer. It is not heavy at all! It feels just like skin when it goes on your face. It is white, but leaves no traces of white on your skin. It blends beautifully and dries quickly. When using this you only need a small amount to get the results you want.

I have used this in instances where I got ready around 1:00 and by 9:00 that evening it looked like I had just put my makeup on. This mattifying gel would be great for a bride or bridal party that wants their makeup to last.

One thing I loved about this product is that you can still wear your moisturizers and serums underneath this gel. I also loved how you don't have to wear makeup over the gel if you didn't want to.

Now, the one thing I don't like about this is the price. It is 41 dollars. The only way I would get this is A.) if I had some spare cash lying around or B.) Use my Birchbox points. Even though I say it is expensive, I could justify the price because you don't need a lot and it will last a long time.

You can find out more about OC8 at their website!
