Honestly when it comes with Oily skin,there is only so much one can do to control oiliness.Vichy Total Mat gives oil control,reduces shine and gives matte finish for about 4-5 hours.It gets absorbed by the skin easily without making face oily or greasy.You really feel you as if you have applied nothing.For those initial 4-5 hours,it really works.It also does not make skin sweaty.It really helps especially in the summers.I just wish it lasted for 8 hours or so! Expensive but a good product!
