My Prime™ Multi-Purpose Mattifying Moisturizer

We may like lip-synching to Grease, but when it becomes a mantra for the finish of our moisturizer, we feel like a beauty school dropout. Finding the right dry-touch formula is challenging, but this cream offers the right amount of moisture without any heaviness or residue. After just two weeks of use, a whopping 90 percent of study participants noticed an improvement in their skin. Looks like this is one relationship that’ll last longer than a summer.

Not a Fan

I thought this had a very strange texture and it made my skin break out terribly. This moisturizer is not for me.

sample better than full product
Purchased

I was so excited to order this. After I received it in the mail I instantly noticed the cream was different . It wasn't as thick and creamy like the sample was. I was so disappointed. For the price I paid I expected to get exactly what was in the sample. Its not even close.

Again with mattifying products?

This was in my box this december and I finally opened it up. If you live in a dry climate OR are a day over 35, this is not the product for you. Does birchbox not read profiles or understand aging skin? Skin becomes drier as you age, so anyone over 35 (who does not live in super humid climate) does not want matte skin. It only accentuates skin that is no longer dewy and that is starting to develop fine lines and loss of volume.

10% fail

I guess that's the category I fell in. I did not notice a difference in using this product. I also missed the soft nurture of a good moisturizer as it soaks in my skin. Not for me.

Wanted to like...

I did not like this product. It was too heavy for my combination skin. I felt like it made my skin oily and coated. Too bad...

Not for sensative or rosacia skin

This stung when I put it on my face and it made me have a break out of rosacia bumps all over. I have dry/combination skin that is extremely sensative and this was not for me.

Did not mattify, BURNED my face

I have normal combination skin, and this burned my face terribly. I only applied it in my oily areas (cheeks) and it somehow made my skin feel more oily, but also tight. When I looked in the mirror a few minutes later, it looked like I had a bad sunburn exactly in the places where I had applied this moisturizer. It literally looked like I had been wearing sunglasses where I had avoided the area under my eyes. I don't even have sensitive skin!

Nothing Special/ Irritated My Skin

I used this product while traveling as it was a great size and I was interested in using it. That was a big mistake. It did mattify as promised (and left a nice finish on my skin) but I didn't feel like it moisturized at all and on the third day of wear I actually started flaking and getting slightly red. I had to purchase a travel size of a different moisturizer and discontinued use of this one. Once I did this my skin returned to normal in a couple of days. I gave the remainder of the product to a friend who hasn't had the irritation problems I did.

My Prime products

I love this product! The trial size (0.3 fl oz) has lasted me 2, maybe 3 months. I only have to use a pea size amount and my face is radiant all day! Next payday, full size purchase for sure!!
