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.
