I have used this for a month now and I already love it. This is the best moisturizer I have ever used. It made my pimples go away. I don't have huge acne but 2 or 3 pimples each week but I haven't seen any since I used this. It is also great for people with combination skin because it doesn't makes my skin looks oily. I love the smell too!! Buy this!!
I've repurchased this many times and it's my HG sunscreen moisturizer for when my skin is on the oilier side such as the hotter summer months. It always preforms well with my make-up, absorbs quickly, contains beneficial skin ingredients such as antioxidants & anti-irritants, great pump packaging, and never feels heavy or greasy throughout the day. Plus the empty bottle can be used towards the Back 2 MAC recycling program too. Highly recommend this sunscreen moisturizer for those with combo to oily skin types. continued >>
Okay, so I never really was interested in MAC for their skin care products but holy cow this is a great moisturizer for oily skin! I have very fair, sensitive, acne prone skin and this sinks right in leaving a matte finish! It doesn’t feel heavy, doesn’t leave me shiny and never causes sensitivity or breakouts! It is fragranced and the fragrance is strong, but it smells good and you get use to it!
I love that this is lightweight and easily absorbed but it isn't moisturizing enough for my slightly flaky cheeks. I apply it in the mornings before my makeup and I love that it has SPF.
I won't be repurchasing but I'm on the lookout for something similar, just more moisturizing!
I have been using Kaya mositurizer for over 2 years and used to love it... But recently it got discontinued and after some research I heard and read good reviews about this one. I have been using this for almost 10 days and it's a nice silky texture...although you feel like it's smooth and gives a cool feeling but it doesn't. It definitely evens out the skin but absorbs really fast! I like it has SPF. The trick is to use as little as possible. I wouldn't recommend this mositurizer for dry skin. Since I have oily/combination skin, it works great for me. The only flaw is the price. It's too expensive and in future if I come across something economical and better I would go for it. For now, I like this one!
Ive been using this moisturizer now for three days and am having mixed thoughts at this stage. Firstly the reason I bought this product in the first place was because I've been pretty slack with the whole wearing an SPF during the day so I thought I'd look for a day time moisturizer with an SPF but also all the other things a good moisturizer should have, and this moisturizer does as it is a Paula's Pick from Beautypedia. So anyway I've been using and here is what I'm thinking.
- Love the texture and the way it feels on my skin
- The smell is nice (typical MAC smell)
- Brimming with antioxidants, skin identical substances, spf 15 etc
- Stable packaging (air and light resistant)
- Possibly not quite enough moisture for my normal to dry skin
- Pump bottle will be hard to get last bit of product out.
- Price is a little on the steep side
- Feel like I need to use a lot of product to cover my face and neck and at this rate it will not be lasting me very long.
So there are a few small concerns and that is why this product didn'y get 5 lippies from me but nonetheless I'm quite happy with it at this stage and will continue to use and more than likely continue to buy as long as my skin doesn't start to get dry. I will update further down the track if this is the case.
So it's been two weeks now and I'm very happy to report that my skin has adjusted to this moisturizer and I no longer feel a bit dry afterwards which I'm thrilled about. In saying this I have changed to 5 lippies and will continue to use this product. My comments still stand on the fact that I have to use quite a lot of product and it will be hard to get the last bit out of the bottle but I can live with that.
This moisturiser is okay. It does its job of moisturising but its nothing special, its just a normal, average moisturiser. For $52 I will definitely not be repurchasing, its a waste of money due to the quality and the quantity. Its just as good as a nutrogena moisturiser that cost me $15. My pump also broke (I did not drop it) so I found myself having to unscrew the lid and bang each time I wanted moisturiser. I just want to say though, this moisturiser makes for an AMAZING brow gel. I put a little bit on my eye brows every morning and they stay neatly groomed all day.
Save your money and buy something special from MAC, they have a range of amazing things!
This is the best daytime moisturizer I've found. I can't tolerate most sunscreens with an spf of over 15, so this is my only sun protection, aside from vitamin C serum.
It has a great texture, it doesn't make my combo skin oily, yet provides enough moisture, and works beautifully under makeup.
According to Paula, it is rich in antioxidants, which is a must for me, and I am happy it's in stable packaging, but the packaging pisses me off. It stops working before all the product comes out, so I haved to take the top off around the last week of use. But, theproduct is fabulous, so I overlook that annoyance.
I love this stuff for my skin; oily, clog prone and can't tolerate a bunch of crap on it. So when I found out how light this was and that is was a Paula's Pick, I tried it out and fell in love. It's not greasy, doesn't irritate my skin and my face has never looked better.
I love this as my daily face lotion. I have combo-oily skin and I feel that this one keeps my skin moisturized without leaving it greasy. Dries to an almost matte finish, I find it ideal under makeup. UVA/UVB protection decent enough for the day-to-day sun exposure when I'm mostly indoors (but need to be protected from window light, driving in the car,etc). If you are going to be in the sun all day, this isn't going to cut it. Smells amazing and luckily no irritating fragrant oils so it gets a Paula's Pick (I trust PB for skin care advice, not-so-much for makeup advice). It is a bit pricy and the bottle is quite small, but it does count toward back2mac. I highly rec for other combo-oily or oily gals, but I don't think it woud be moisturizing enough for dry skinned ladies.
