A Great Moisturizer For Oily Skin: Dermelect Cosmeceuticals Pore Revolution and T-Zone Mattifier

Skin Care


Every once in a while, I stumble across a product that is ideal for people with a certain type of skin.  That’s the case with the new Dermelect Cosmeceuticals Pore Revolution and T-Zone Mattifier ($20.74 when bought through EBates.com [sign up and search for the product through the site, so this is the lowest price I could find]), which promises to relieve just about every annoying symptom there is about oily skin, from visible pores to shininess to acne production.

How does the product work?  The main secrets are the salicyclic acid, tea tree oil, and the dry silicone base.  Salicyclic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid, gently cleanses and exfoliates the skin by softening keratin and thereby loosening dry scaly skin, effectively increasing cell turnover and unclogging the pores.  For this reason, salicyclic acid is included in many anti-acne products.  In addition, although found in lower concentration, the product’s tea tree leaf oil may reduce the occurrence of acne in a manner similar to benzoyl peroxide, though at a much slower rate.  Tea tree oil used topically may also control oil production, according to many sources, including The Prescription for Nutritional Healing.  Finally, the cream’s dry, powdery consistency leaves skin feeling soft without being oily, shiny, or sticky.

My only potential complaints about Dermelect Cosmeceuticals Pore Revolution and T-Zone Mattifier are the smell (a bit medicinal) and the fact that it doesn’t contain sunscreen, so it should be reserved for nighttime use.  Still, though, with a dab of your favorite perfume, it’s the perfect thing to use for your oily skin before a big night out!  🙂  I give it a solid, enthusiastic 9/10 for anyone with oily skin.

    I have been trying for years to find the right moisturizer for my skin, which despite being super oily and prone to breakouts, dries up and flakes in certain areas. It’s been so severe that I have not been able to wear make-up, because it would just accentuate it.

    From the first day I used the Vitamin Enhanced Moisturizer (from the Made from Earth skincare line), the problem was eradicated. It was heavy but NOT oily, and the dry spots were gone! Not only that, but my skin was wonderfully clear and soft.

    After I ran out of this, I tried using a more expensive Estee Lauder cream, and the dryness was back in a few days. Yes, the price tag is a bit steep, and as some reviewers have mentioned, but its is HYPOallergic and worth it to avoid any reactions – perfect for those of us like me with ULTA sensitive skin.

    Definitely give it a try is you have tried everything and nothing seems to work – This moisturizer is well worth looking into!

    The Made from Earth Rosehip & Hibiscus Face Serum is perfect for my skin. My chin, forehead and especially my nose tend to be oily, but the rest of my face can be really dry. Anything I use to prevent or reduce acne generally dries out my face. I haven’t been able to find this moisturizer at my regular stores lately, so I used another brand’s moisturizer (Dove, I believe), and my face started breaking out by the next day. I’ve read other reviews where people said this moisturizer makes their skin softer than it’s ever been. I guess it just really depends on your skin type. They should sell cheaper samples, so people can try out these kind of products. Oh well. I’m just glad to find it on their website – if your looking for it its: http://www.madefromearth.com.
