My Thoughts On Plum Green Tea Mattifying Moisturizer
I have been using Plum Green Tea Mattifying Moisturizer for about two weeks, I use it twice a day after cleansing and applying a toner on my face. My skin is very oily and the most problematic area is around nose, which turns oily just less than a few mins after I cleanse my skin. One pump of it was enough for entire face, and the moisturizer takes just a min to glide into my skin. It leaves a beautiful matte finish to my face after application.
I also used it beneath my makeup to control the excess oil which would otherwise make my make up look cakey. And I was amazed by the result, the make up stayed in place perfectly for about two plus hours. After which I was able to notice oil around my nose and forehead.
The moisturizer is white in color and is not so runny or not too thick, it’s somewhere medium thick which easily gets absorbed in skin. It has a very mild floral fragrance that makes you feel fresh without irritating sensitive nose.
Overall it’s a good product for oily-acne prone skin where excess oil causes breakouts, itching(coz it very well controls the oil). But for me I thought the moisturizer would have provided my skin with more amount of hydration, as it was only engaged in giving the matte finish!
