Like most women, I like to glow. But I like to have a glow that makes people think, she's "perfect and vaguely threatening", not "oh, she needs to blot." And it's a very tricky line to toe. Too much grease is never going to be something I aim for, and well, in hot and muggy weather, that's almost a bonafied guarrantee. But Murad's new oil-control mask is basically the magic solution for excess oil, keeping my skin glowing and comfortable all day long. Myself and Victoria loved it so dang much that we just had to put it in our Beauty Bag for June. Read on for more details on why it is *praying hands emoji*.

What Makes It Special:

This versatile formula can be used as a cleanser or a mask. Murad’s proprietary Oil-Control Complex® instantly absorbs excess oil and provides a long-lasting matte finish.
