Medi-Matte Oil Control Lotion by Cosmedicine Review | Moisturizing Facial Tint with SPF 20

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

Cosmedicine Medi-Matte Face TintCosmedicine have devised a matte facial tint that also controls excess oil production. It should mattify and eliminate shine for up to 8 hours, according to Cosmedicine.

This does sound like a very appealing product as it has an SPF 20, which I know is a very important factor for a lot of people. In turn the sun protection will help reduce skin moisture loss.

The face tint is also formulated to hydrate the skin, therefor leaving it smoother and more even. All these factors including the tint, will give the face a natural hint of color for a flawless complexion, says Cosmedicine.

Medi-Matte Face Tint and Oil Control Lotion is suitable for all skin types, even the more sensitive ones. The lotion is recommended by Cosmedicine for people with excess oil and enlarged pores.

To Sum Up

While most users with oily skin found the lotion worked well for mattifying their skin, some said it only worked for a couple of hours before their skin became shiny again.

There are a couple of patrons that said it seemed to block their pores coursing a acne out break.

As every ones skin is different there will never be a product that is perfect for all of us. Fortunately this oil control lotion seems to work for most though.

At $42 for a 1.35oz bottle it is a little extravagant but if you can fit it into your budget it might be worth a try.

It also contains a SPF 20 which is a sweet bonus. This will help prevent the signs of aging as unprotected sun exposure can cause photo-aging and dry skin. In result can lead to: wrinkles, liver spots, dilation of capillaries.

Good Points

Reviews on Amazon are mostly positive about this tinted moisturizer. Most users have said it is:

  • Light and sheer
  • Hydrating
  • Long lasting
  • Very natural looking

However, some users have found it to be a bit watery and so not effective at covering red spots or other blemishes.

Laura Mercier has priced this tinted moisturizer quite high at $42.00 a tube, but the majority of users think that it "deserves it's price tag". They consistently say that good things don't come cheap and that this tinted moisturizer/foundation definitely isn't cheap.
