I'm so glad this product works for me. I love the cooling feeling, and that my face doesn't appear oily after use. Of course, the effect varies as not all of us have the same skin type, but I must say this one is really for me!

The texture is more lightweight and has oil-absorbing benefits to keep the skin looking matte with a velvety finish. Thus, no stickiness at all upon application. I've used this for day and it's certainly not moisturizing enough for my skin. Oily complexions would benefit more from this.

It does took the shine away from my face for about half of the day, but I noticed I had white heads build up after using this for a few days on top of the hydrating treatment. also my pores were bigger towards the end of the afternoon. I had to wash my face by then.

I have always had oily skin and this product is definitely worth the try. I really noticed that my pores were minimized and my T-zone is less shiny.

This product for me is so versatile.. it is perfect for any skin type - oily, dry, or combination. I am amazed that my skin looks and feels shiny and dewy without being oily and at the same time mattefying without drying! it is indeed neutralizing. I applied it once in the morning, opted to skip my usual bb cream and directly put my makeup on, and I swear my pores is not visible despite not putting on bb cream. It even lasts the whole day.

This is one of the best products I have tried in Sample Room though I find the sample size too small, still enough to somehow appreciate . I like it because it's great for my combination skin -- a bit oily in the T section so I really make sure I get the right product to keep my face oil & shine-free but can handle some dry parts of my face (cheek area). It really had a great effect on my skin, I notice that it didn't cause me any breakout lately. I also like that it is very easy to apply especially when you are in a hurry every morning. It can easily be absorbed by my skin and it does not feel icky.

I love the texture of this gel because it can be easily spread on my face. It does not feel greasy and feels light on the skin. When worn alone, it did nothing to hide my large pores. I tried using it under makeup. I put foundation right on top of it without setting my face with powder. Although I can't say that it gave me a matte finish, it did minimize the appearance of my pores, working like a foundation primer. After an hour, I did get a bit more dewy-looking but not really oily.

Luckily i don't have oily skin, so i really can't tell how effective is the oil control factor of H2O Shine Neutralizing Gel is. But i dig in the moisture it provides the whole day and unlike other moisturizer, it doesn't leave a shiny texture on my skin. It also has a refreshing feel after application and smells great.

The gel feels really smooth and you only need a small amount or else it will feel sticky. It improves the application of makeup. As for the shine neutralizing part, it didn't last all day, my face is shiny and oily after 3 hours. Didn't see much improvement on lines/pores.

True to its promise, it does neutralize oil on my face! I used it on my T-zone and was surprised that i made it to lunchtime without need for my oil blotter, it actually leaves a matte look finish and does not sting at all so this helps people with very oily skin like mine to lessen the shiny look :)

Same texture as other H2O products, feels nice and light weight. It is absorbed by the skin fairly fast. I noticed that my T-zone does not oil up that much whenever i use this.

i appreciate how this gel applies smoothly and creates a smooth and matte surface for my bb cream application. there's still some shine towards the middle of the day, but my face doesn't seem to oil up as quickly as usual.

I like the feel and texture of this product as it is in a gel form. I belive its water based which I like mostly for my oily face. It has quite a similar color and texture with the H2o eye cream, which is why if you are not reading the label twice you might confuse one from the other. I am not sure about minimizing pores but has an average performance in absorbing oil. I still love this product but it is the price tag that draws me back.

Well, I’ve been using it for a week and here’s my verdict:
-The gel comes out from the tube as a aqua-blue (reminiscent of the sea), but when applied to the skin, it is transparent and translucent.
-It feels as if you hadn’t applied anything on your face. It is non-greasy and very lightweight, no feeling of heaviness and dries out fast too, unlike in most moisturizers.
-The smell of the gel is very subtle and fresh.
-I use it before I put on make-up primer and powder, and it surprisingly does keep shine and oil at bay. Although it doesn’t completely or totally eradicate shine by making my face matte all day, I noticed that it really lessened the oilyness. The entire week I’ve been using it, I only retouched face powder once a day. Amazing!

The only downside with this is the price. But I like how it is moisturizing but at the same time no greasy feel on the face. I have a combination skin with shiny T zone but drier skin on the cheeks and nose. Great product for those lwith skin type like me, This is great for the comming summer months. And it has a cooling effect on skin.
