I'm a a bit of a fickle fiend when it comes to moisturizers. I don't have sensitive skin, so I will try just about anything. I also don't find that too many have broken me out in the past. I do try to avoid anything with mineral oil and fragrance to high up in the ingredients. I like products with some SPF, and if they have other beneficial ingredients then I'm all for it.
I think it is also worth noting that I have mostly normal to dry skin, with a oily nose.
So, I was given the chance to try out the Witch Skincare Mattifying Mosituriser I jumped at the chance. I figured that something that was meant to mattify and moisturise would be great for my combination skin type, and it also has a nice SPF of 15 which is great for this time of year (or any time of year to be honest).
You get a nice 100ml of product for the low price of £4.99 RRP but you can usually find it on some kind of offer in Superdrug or Boots. The packaging is nice and simple, perfect for traveling or taking on the go because there is no glass or easily breakable plastic.
The lotion is light, and probably best for people with combo/oily skin. It does work for me, but if I'm having a dry day it's not quite enough for me. It doesn't mattify to much, but it is light enough to use on my oily nose. It doesn't make it worse, but I wouldn't say it helps control the oil through the day.
I can't say I saw anything other than a light moisturizing effect in terms of benefits, but sometimes it is nice to just have a basic product that does what it says on the tin. I have just one tip for you guys, don't put this anywhere near your eyes. I do have quite sensitive eyes, but I got this ever so slightly near my undereye and it took me about 10 minutes to get it to stop streaming.
Overall, I would recommend this to anyone with combination or slightly oily skin. It is a nice basic product for a good price and it's easily accessible for people who want to try it out. You can get it online here for £4.99 or instore where they sell Witch products
