Review: MAC Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Gel



Product Info from MAC website:
An ultra-light, gel-like cream that absorbs instantly to give the skin intense hydration. Infused with our exclusive Super-Charged Water technology, this formula leaves skin softer, more luminous. Use day or night.
CLAIMS:
* skin appears smoother and more luminous over time.
* absorbs into skin and providing immediate (68%) and long term hydration (25%) and helps skin's radiance immediately (32%) and over time (24%).
* provides 77 bio-available minerals to help nourish the skin.

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS:
* Aloe leaf extract
* Gemstones (Rhodochrosite and Diamond powder)
* Potassium, Magnesium, Sodium and Zinc for skin nutrition


RETAIL PRICE: Php 2,100 (about $50)
WEIGHT: 50 ml

PROS:
* non-greasy and fast absorbing
* instantly my skin feels moisturised without the greasy after feel
* makes a nice base under makeup
* unscented
* my skin felt hydrated the whole day 
* no breakouts
* the tub contains a lot of product. I think this will last me a year even with daily use.


CONS:
* no spf if you use this during daytime
* tub packaging is not hygenic
* some may find the price expensive


TIPS: 
* to avoid contaminating the product, use a spatula or a cotton bud to transfer a small amount of moisturiser into a small container. Bought mine at Watsons for less than Php 50 with a spatula. 

I RECOMMEND THIS TO:
Those who are looking for a non-greasy and oil-free moisturiser. For all skintypes.


OVERALL:
I've been using this for more than a month already and I love it! I use this during daytime after toning my face with NU Skin's Napca Moisture mist and before applying my Dr. Jart Silver Label Spf 35++ BB cream. My skin now is sensitive and so far I didn't experience breaking out with it. I'm also using the Mineralized Charge Water Eye cream and will share my thoughts about it soon.

Thanks for this review!

I've started using one of TONY MOLY's new-ish bb creams and since I've got combination skin, I need something to hydrate my drier areas so they're not emphasized once I apply the bb itself. And since it's oil-free, it's a plus for my oilier areas (aka my t-zone)!

I just opened up my own blog at http://dolcellita.blogspot.com/ and posted my first review. Hope you can check it out too! :)
