Gather round ye old Prescriptives fans and enjoy an ode to Comfort Cream. Fans of Prescriptives cried bloody murder when the brand suddenly shut shop and took all their favorites products away.
I used to love their LE items but I wasn’t as die hard a fan as some of you are to this day. Some of you have proclaimed the joys of the perfect foundations and concealers from the brand and sobbed your heart out when it was said and done.
A little good news to lighten your heart. MAC brings back Prescriptives Comfort Cream in a big old jar plus a way cheaper price tag.
Sensitive types rejoice!
A thick moisturizer formula to hydrated and provide relief to red, irritated skin.
Although thick this absorbs fairly easily into skin and leaves behind a super hydrated finish. I actually like using this as a prep and prime for my makeup as it really creates a moisturized, even surface for my makeup. I don’t suffer from redness or sensitive skin but I can still take advantage of the extra moisture this provides.
Those with sensitive skin will find it very soothing and hydrating. Even if your skin is as dry as mine you can still easily see how delicate and gentle the moisturizer feels on your skin.
The MAC Complete Comfort Cream is merely renamed, resized (bigger), and re-priced (cheaper) version of Prescriptives Comfort Cream so if you were a fan now is your chance to snatch it up again!
It’s a basic moisturizer so don’t expect alot of bells, whistles, or anti-aging ingredients here.
- Anyone who wants a solid moisturizer for prepping prior to makeup!
- Anyone with sensitive skin.
- Those who suffer from redness and need a moisturizer that’s gentle enough to ease the problem without causing further issues.
- Anyone who wants a soothing cream with a good hydrating effect.
- Those who want more (if you need anti-aging benefits, something to ease dullness, etc…this won’t do the trick).
This is a great purchase for those with drier more sensitive skin. It’s thick and creamy but still manages to be gentle and delicate on skin. It’s fragrance free and sports an easy absorb formula that makes it an ideal pick for pre-makeup moisturizer.
It won’t take the place of my daily moisturizers but when I’m hurrying around or need a bit more hydration, this does the trick well! I’d recommend it big time for those who are sensitive.
Anyone try and love it?
