ERNEST SUPPLIES Protective Matte Moisturizer

Your skin doesn’t ask for much: basic cleansing, a little moisture, and perhaps some protection from the elements. This formula is powered by natural ingredients like açai berry and green tea extracts, which spur skin’ regeneration, and cupuacu fruit extract, which heals and hydrates. Vitamins A and E help preserve elasticity, ensuring a youthful payoff that will last for decades. But the best part? This minty hydrator absorbs so clean and quick, you'll forget that you're wearing it.

This is a good quality product. If I didn't use The art of shaving shaving cream, this would have been rated higher. It gives a good feel and if you don't like to go through a 4 step process that The art of shaving recommends then this might be better. You definitely can feel it on your face as it cools your skin. It does have a good rich lather, although the smell wasn't pleasant to ME. Smells are definitely a personal preference and this one wasn't for me. It did leave my face feeling calm after the shave with no after shave balm, which is a plus for me. So to stop rambling on, I recommend it especially if you are not wanting to get in to a whole process of shaving.

You Need This!
Sampled

I don't know what I was doing with my life before I purchased this. I would struggle with getting a greasy face in the afternoon everyday. I thought I had to wash more. However, once I started using this, I now have a face that feels wonderful and doesn't get greasy all day!

Great product!
Sampled

I have never liked moisturizing or using lotion because of the greasy feeling afterwards but after trying this out twice I am a believer! You get what you pay for. No greasiness afterwards and no over bearing scent.

It Seems Okay To Me
Sampled

I thought the container was a bit strange, not that it was bad or anything, it is just different.

I have used this sample only a couple of times and it seems to be fairly okay so far. I don’t notice a scent to speak of and it massages into the skin with a non-greasy feel to it. At this time, I am not sure how I feel about it. I have never really used a facial moisturizer before outside of the shaving products I use. So far, I have not noticed much except maybe my face is not quite as dry as it used to be.

The directions say to apply twice a day so perhaps after using this for a week or so, I will start to notice the effects better. Actually, I am not sure the sample size is enough to last that long. I guess we will see how things are when I run out. Until then, I will rate it at 4 stars. Who knows? Maybe this stuff will blow me away!

wish it had sunscreen
Sampled

I am new to Birchbox and pretty much new to using products other than shampoo and basic body wash. I want to take better care of my skin which is one of the reasons I got BB. I do wish this had sunscreen though I did like that it isn't greasy on my face and mattes well.

Great but not a fan of the fragrance.
Sampled

Applying the moisturizer kept my skin clean and not oily. The only problem I had was the fragrance, it really strong and did not fit well.

Great, light lotion
Sampled

I've got sensitive and reactive skin and I have to be pretty careful with what I put on my face to avoid skin issues. I use this sample at the end of my regular skincare routine and it will be replacing my current go-to. It's light on the skin and dries to a completely matte and non-greasy finish. The smell is light and pleasant at first and then unnoticeable after a few minutes, which I appreciate. All in all, this is a fantastic lotion!

Great Product

My favorite moisturizer this far. Not oily and gives the face a nice feel the whole day! I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great all around product with semi oily skin.

Smelled pretty nice and decreased the amount of razor burn. A bit oily though.
