MAC Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Gel Review, Swatches, Photos
I’m having a lustful skincare moment here as I’m currently in lust with MAC Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Gel. To my knowledge this is the first time MAC has done a gel moisturizer but feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.
Although I’m not a faithful user of MAC Skincare one solid point is all their products wear so well under makeup. Anyone notice that? Eye creams, moisturizers, etc…they all have a perfect wear under makeup. In the case of their new Moisture Gel it’s just as lovely under makeup particularly for the dry skin girls out there.
Take a look!
Make no mistake here when you read “gel” and assume that this is a lightweight facial moisturizer. I hear gel and I automatically think of Asian gel moisturizers which are super light and suitable for oily skin. This is actually quite a heavy weight. It’s a thicker gel formula that soothes drier skin beautifully and offers a strong moisturizing finish that reduces the appearance of patchy or flaky dry areas easily.
MAC supercharged the moisture gel with their 77 Mineral Complex. Now I like Charged Water well enough but I’m not sure how beneficial the mineral complex is to your skin so I can’t really speak for that aspect of the product.
The gel absorbs easily into skin and leaves it softer, smoother, and perfectly prepped for makeup. I prefer a richer facial cream for daily use in the colder weather and this fits the bill perfectly as it offers plenty of lasting hydration and preps my skin so well that I can easily use powder without aging myself due to drier skin.
Overall, MAC Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Gel is a welcome staple to my skincare collection. I’ve been using it daily for the past two weeks and must say it proves a great prep for makeup and allows my skin to breath easily without feeling too heavy, greasy, or oily. The smooth surface it creates after application proves perfection for my BB Cream/foundation products. The one down fall side is it does come in a rather large tub which means the product won’t remain stable for long but try getting a small plastic scoop of some kind to avoid dipping into it with fingers.
Likey this one!
I think all skin types can easily benefit from this one!
