I was at Ulta the other day and the Formula 10.0.6. beauty products brand had a “buy one, get one half off” special.  I love bargain shopping, so of course, I had to purchase their products (since they were on sale).  I ended up selecting a mud mask and a moisturizer.  It’s not just any moisturizer though; it’s a Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil-Free Moisturizer.  The “mattifying” word is what made me grab this squeeze tube and stick it inside my shopping cart.  Matte means dry, shine-free, zero glare, no twinkle, no gleam, etc (you get the picture).  Matte is one of my favorite words.  You’re probably thinking that I suffer from oily skin and that I am a typical shiny t-zone kind of girl…..well, you are correct!  Oily skin is my enemy and I will try anything to combat it.

Formula 10.0.6. Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil-Free Moisturizer comes inside a white squeeze tube.  I bought a 2.54 fl oz bottle for @ $7 US Dollars.  You can find this beauty product at your favorite beauty store and also online.

Having both the words mattifying and moisturizer in the same sentence sounds a bit of an oxymoron to me, because one word dries, while the other adds moisture.  However, two of the ingredients inside this mattifying moisturizer are aloe vera and bamboo.  Aloe vera is known for its smoothing and healing properties, while bamboo helps to absorb unwanted oil. 

I put this Formula 10.0.6. Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil-Free Moisturizer to the test.  I squeezed some of it onto the palm of my hand, and I noticed that its consistency was not too thick or too thin, it was just right in the middle.  I also noticed a hard to describe scent radiating from it.  It was not a feminine or masculine smell; it was more of a chalky chemical smell.  Why they couldn’t add a bit of a coconut or fruity smell to it, I do not know; that would have been fabulous!

 

                                                        This moisturizer is not too thick or too thin.

       This is how my make-up free face looked before applying on the mattifying moisturizer (scary I know).

After applying the Formula 10.0.6. Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil-Free Moisturizer to my face, I immediately felt like a thin film was left on my skin.  However, that feeling disappeared within a couple of minutes after my face dried up. 

I was pleasantly surprised to see that some of the shine on my face had vanished.  Noticed that I said the word “some”, and not the word “all.”  This product removed about 95% of my shine, but I could still see a little bit of it left on some areas of my face.

So, I would recommend this Formula 10.0.6. Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil-Free Moisturizer to those people (women and men) who suffer from oily faces.  This product is very affordable, so it’s worth a try!
