Sephora Acne-Fighting Mattifying Moisturizer Review

Image Courtesy of

I'm not going to lie.  I love it.  It's everything I've ever wanted in a moisturizer for my oily skin.  It keeps me matte, it's not expensive, and I haven't had a pimple since I started using it.  I don't really have acne issues, but I just want to take note of that.  I got this mainly for the mattifying properties.  

The product itself is lightweight with a light scent that is clean and pleasant.  It only takes about a two or three pumps for my entire face.  Being the consistency of a serum, it absorbs quickly and spreads smoothly.  The packaging makes it easy for carrying as i can be applied (or is recommended that it be applied) three times daily.

I can't say enough about it.  I'm so satisfied with the amount of time it lasts.  Sure, 18 dollars is a little steep for moisturizer, but it's well worth it.  So if you're oily like me, Definitely use this.  It is also safe to use in conjunction with a primer for added oil control.

Length Check 2013/Sephora Haul

I promised this ages ago, but my life is crazy busy.  I'm pleasantly surprised with the length of my hair.  It's difficult to tell from the photo, but it's below BSL at this point.  I won't bore anyone.  Here's the pic.  And btw, I'm needing about a one inch trim.

I also wanted to share a small haul of items I picked up at Sephora.

Here is the list of items from left to right:
  • Sephora Acne-Fighting Mattifying Moisturizer
  • Sephora Supreme Cleansing Foam
  • Make Up Forever HD Foundation (N177)
