3 Tips for Talking to Clients about Oil Control


Skin care professionals: With spring underway, and summer hot on its tracks, more and more clients will come into the treatment room experiencing excess shine. We’ve talked about oily skin causes , and how Oil Control Mattifier can stop the shine before it starts, but it might seem difficult to find a time to recommend an at-home remedy in the treatment room.  Here are our top 3 tips for talking to your clients about the solution to excess oil.

  1. The Consultation: The first step in every Bioelements facial is also the first opportunity to identify whether or not your client needs Oil Control Mattifier. Used as a way to accurately recognize skin problems, the consultation step of the SkinReading system allows clients to express hereditary or periodic oiliness they might experience. Look for phrases like, “so oily,” “constantly shiny,” or even “prone to breakouts” on their SkinReading form.
  1. Verbal Cues: Beyond what’s written on your client’s SkinReading form are the verbal cues given when discussing their skin problems. Statements like, “I’ve been experiencing an oilier t-zone since the start of spring,” or, “My skin looks greasy by lunch time,” are signals that they are good candidates for Oil Control Mattifier.
  1. The SkinReading: After you have removed your client’s makeup and can view their skin under the magnifying lamp, you can more thoroughly evaluate their skin. An Oily skin type can have larger pores in the t-zone and cheeks along with pores clogged with blackheads. The SkinReading can reveal details and concerns left unmentioned by the client.

I would love to be able to offer this to my clients. This time of year I get a lot of complaints about excessive oil and breakouts. I would love to have another option to try with them (and myself!).

I’m super excited about trying the new Oil Control Mattifier because so many of my clients have been complaining of excess shine in their Tzone yet struggling with dehydration issues at the same time. I hope this can be the cure for them!

I am so excited about this product because I have always felt there just wasn’t anything strong enough for truly oily skin to control their shine all day long. Even with great products like decongestant cleanser and customized beyond hydration their oil would still break through midday. I gave my oiliest client a jar of this to try on me and she can not say enough great things. Her pore size is diminished, her makeup stays put and it held up just as we’ll on her Florida vacation. This is gonna mean great things for my ability to treat oily skin!

I’m so excited for the Oil Control Mattifier because the weather is extremely hot out here in Southern California and my oily clients are having a hard time during the summer to keep their makeup on even though they’re using the Decongestant Cleanser and Beyond Hydration. I’ve tried it on myself and it really is a miracle for my oily skin type clients. Love it!

I am excited because finally there is a product to mattify the skin, eliminating the need to constantly blot the face with the “rice paper” to remove excess oil. And the best part is you can re-apply by dabbing the product on top of your make-up without ruining it.

So excited to offer something new to my clients! I hate hearing about how so many of my clients suffer from oily skin and have never found a product that gets them through entire day without shine. Finally something that will work for them!! No more blotting and reapplying makeup all the time!

I am excited to share this product with my clients who have told me of the embarrassment they feel from the excess oil in their t-zone. The fact that this product can be used as a spot treatment, and will hold make-up in place during the work day ensures it’s popularity!
This product will be a must have for oily and combination skin types!

I am very excited about the new Oil Control Mattifier. It’s amazing to me that with one product you can halt the appearance of excess oil, have a matte finish to put on your makeup, and be able to re-apply it OVER makeup later on.

I can’t wait to offer this product to many of my clients who, like me, fight the build-up of oil and shine in the t-zone as the day progresses — especially as the weather grows warmer. The fact that it can also be applied throughout the day, over makeup, will also appeal to those of us who wish to control that shine.
