Part 1: Cosmedicine Roundup

Medi-Matte Oil Control Lotion SPF 20

This product is a  lightweight, mattifying lotion with antioxidants and UVA/UVB, SPF 20 sunscreens. It controls sebum (oil) production creating the perfect environment to normalize oily skin. Reduces shine for up to eight hours. Makes skin look even, smooth and flawless.

And, supposedly, it reduces the potential for breakouts by eliminating excess oil and clogged pores. But I swear to you, the more products I put on my skin, the more I seem to run the risk of clogged pores, especially on my chin and nose. We shall see, since I just started using this product.

Also, I don’t have oily skin all over, just in the T-zone, so I have to switch to a different SPF lotion on those non-oily areas. Not the hugest deal, but worth mentioning. I think Medi-Matte Oil Control Lotion would be ideal for someone who had oily skin and not combination and needed something super mattifying.

Price: $42 / 1.35 oz

Private Nurse Recovery & Repair Cream

This cream is a deeply hydrating nighttime treatment cream that contains potent ingredients including Crosslinked Sodium Hyaluronate, the moisture-binding ingredient found in the newest prescription wrinkle fillers. It adds fullness and freshness to skin by morning to restore youthful contours; plumps up depressions in skin’s infrastructure, adds suppleness and volume; and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It’s great for even the most sensitive skin.

This stuff feels really lovely going on your skin. It’s actually very light for a night cream–I thought it was going to be thick and heavy and feel awful on. But it was quite the opposite. It smells very faint and clean and the texture of the cream is fluffy, kind of like merengue. It absorbs into your skin right away and just leaves it feeling softer and more hydrated.

Price: $75 / 1 oz

Check back in a few days, because I will be reviewing Cosmedicine Medi-morphosis Self Adjusting Exfoliator and Mega Moisture Mask Intensive Treatment.
