Bought it recently for winter time. Using Ultra Matte for the summer. Works wonders. Gives enough moisture for my oily skin but not overly greasy and sticky mid-day. Still has some shine mid-day but not as bad as when I used different brand.

Didn't work for me (combination skin).
I've got acne and bought this product along a roses toner no the tamarind foam... This lotion neither gave a matte image nor moisture.
I think it depends on the person also, because I have tried other Clarins products and are really good.

Skin is precious
The one thing I learned as a teenager with what I thought was the worst skin on the planet was that I had to take care of my face. I learned to look at it as true pampering every morning and night but when you have skin and pores like mine, you cannot skip out so the positive attitiude about taking care of your face is key. Our pores look larger when the face is not kept clean and appropriately moisturized. I exfoliate twice a week, keep my hands away from my face whenever possible, keep hydrated and use the Truly Matte line. My skin actually feels joy and while you are stuck with the pores you are born with, you can reduce their appearance by keeping your skin clean and hydrated. The Hydra-Matte lotion is perfect by itself and as a primer for my makeup. Even in my late 40s I used to shine up like I had an oil slick on my face, but never again with this product. I highly recommend it - and it works even better with the other members of the Truly Matte line.

Refresh: yes; Pore, no.
The same as the serum in this line, it is a very nice product in terms of refreshing and gentleness. But didn't work on my visible pore.
