If you're like most people with oily skin, your complexion often becomes shiny, particular in the t-zone area of the forehead, nose and chin. This shine develops due to excess oil, which lingers on the surface of your skin and creates a reflective surface. Numerous techniques are available for controlling shine from blotting papers to face powder, but typically these products offer only short-lived benefits. With an hour or two, your skin has manufactured enough oil for the shine to return, creating a continuous cycle of short-term treatment followed by the return of unwanted shine.
OC Eight skin care products help to break the shine cycle, allowing your skin to look matte and radiant without the need for cosmetics or blotting papers. The formulas found in OC Eight skin care products absorb excess oil on the skin and remain effective for up to 8 hours, keeping you free of shine throughout your entire workday or evening. The OC Eight skin care collection also includes products to help treat acne, another common problem associated with oily complexions. Fight oily shine before it starts with OC Eight.

Keep that unwanted oily shine away for up to 8 hours per day with OC Eight skin care products, formulas that absorb excess sebum without hiding your skin's radiance.
The OC Eight Professional Mattifying Gel contains a unique biotechnological ingredient that allows the formula to combat that oily shine for up to 8 full hours. Called ACRYSORB, this ingredient consists of tiny particles, which are highly absorbent. As the particles rest on your skin, they draw in excess oil and hold 6 times their weight in sebum. The result is a reduction in shine that does not conceal the natural glow of your skin. When applied before makeup, the mattifying gel helps to prevent sebum from diluting the pigments, helping your cosmetics to stay in place all day long. The formula is sold in a 1.6-ounce inverted tube.
The OC Eight Acne Mattifying Gel is an effective anti-shine treatment and acne remedy in one convenient product. The gel contains the original ACRYSORB micro-particles, so it effectively fights shine for up to 8 hours. In addition, the formula features 7 percent benzoyl peroxide. A traditional acne treatment successfully used to combat pimples for decades, benzoyl peroxide works on the sebaceous glands, causing them to slow down their rate of sebum production. As a result, less oil is released into the pores, reducing the likelihood of blockages and the acne that follows as a result of clogs in the pores. The acne treatment product is available in a 1.6-ounce tube.
