E.L.F. Studio Daily Moisture Stick is a new clear gel moisture stick that quickly nourishes and hydrates skin with a lightweight soothing balm.
I’ve compared it to DuWop’s Flight Stick, which I love, due to the design and idea behind it. I’m kinda in love with the idea of a moisture stick as it makes for an excellent prep for makeup and travels really well for moisture on to go.
But E.L.F. got something very wrong with this stick….
Great idea, great price point ($6), and just generally a super product E.L.F. Nice work! DuWop charges considerably higher for their Flight Stick so I was quite excited to get my hands on this.
This is a large chubby stick that swivels up for application. It’s a translucent gel which has a lightweight balm-like texture. I’m unsure how many folks are comfortable swiping it on skin and traveling with it as that’s not entirely hygienic. If you can get past the bacteria issues you might think it a nifty tool for having in your makeup bag. If you travel a lot it makes for an excellent source of moisture on the go and acts as a nice prep prior to makeup to smooth drier skin and allow for easier makeup application.
The formula absorbs easily, leaves behind a nice hydrating finish, and feels cooling on skin. I like it overall.
It’s loaded with parabens. Although they are lower on the list of ingredients on the list it still has over three different parabens listed in the ingredients. I’m unsure how many people will feel comfortable applying on their face with parabens in the formula unfortunately.
This $6 stick is quite a friendly budget pick and the formula seems quite lovely but sadly, the parabens are definitely a killjoy.
Anyone try it?
Do you mind the parabens?
