I have used Origins products for years and used to be a slave to Matte Scientist during the warm Texas summers. I work in Public Safety, wear no foundation at work, but really like to stay clean and fresh looking. If made to choose, Matte Scientist was better foe the texture of my skin, but the Zero Oil Instant matte works longer, even if it doesnt leave my skin as smooth feeling. I do like the tiny size; I keep it in my pocket for a quick freshen-up between runs.
All in all a good product, but I miss my Matte Scientist! I still had some left over when I first got the Zero Oil, and actually used both-the Matte Scientist underneath and the Zero Oil on top and it was a PERFECT combination. Origins give us back our Matte Scientist please!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by GinaNuch0325 I cannot live without this product!
I think that I was one of the original users of this product, and have not stopped using it since I first tried it. I don't know what I would do if they discontinued Zero Oil Instant matte finish. I actually stock up on Zero Oil so I will never run out of it. I can definitely see a difference in my skin when I do not use Zero Oil after I apply my makeup. Helpful hint for those that feel Zero Oil leaves a white chalky appearance on your face after it is applied. I shake the product very well and pour a small amount into the palm of my hand. I apply it to my face by just rubbing my hands together and dabbing Zero Oil to my entire face, concentrating on my most oily areas, like my nose, forehead and chin. When the product dries, I take a clean, dry paper towel and work it lightly over the white areas and they instantly disappear, blending right into your skin. The look of my makeup is like night and day if I do not use it. Without Zero Oil Instant matte finish, my oily skin is uncontrolable. Works very well with Matte Scientist oil free face lotion. Please bring back Matte Scientist. Biggest mistake that Origins made when they discontinued this product. Please don't ever discontinue Zero Oil. I would be devastated!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Nikibits Great product!
I typically do not write reviews but this product is amazing. I am 30yrs old and have horribly oily skin. This product takes all the shine away, so much so that people often think I wear makeup because my skin looks great.
If you have oily skin and have 15 bucks to spend, BUY THIS!

I purchased this product in search of a mattifier that would control the oil in the T-Zone. This product is okay, however, it doesn't control oil breakthrough in the T-zone as well as I would like. I will continue to use but I find it necessary to use blotting papers and/or powder throughout the day.
