Essence Pure Skin Anti-Spot Moisturizer – Review

Sunday, October 20, 2013 Sara Hassan , 10 Comments

Having a combination skin, I always have a hard time picking up a moisturizer that would agree with my skin.

Pure Skin Anti-Spot Moisturizer
The moisturizing cream improves the appearance of your skin: it alleviates visible redness, calms the skin and has a mattifying effect. Its perfectly aligned ingredients battle spots and blackheads and prevent the appearance of new ones at the same time! ideal day and night care for a fresh complexion.

My thoughts
Essence Pure Skin Anti-Spot Moisturizer comes in a 75ml tube; enough to last you a month or two. It has a mild medicinal scent similar to the Toner & Powder from the same range. The consistency of the product is thin, much like a lotion, and absorbs within seconds which is exactly what I look for in a moisturizer. I love that it feels light without feeling sticky/greasy something I cannot stand whatsoever.

The product claims to fight zits and blackheads. It contains witch hazel and Zinc pca which fights acne, reduces inflammation and swelling. From what I have gathered, it does help fight occasional zits but if you’ve got serious acne, I don’t think this would work. Since I do not have blackheads, I am not sure if this would fight those too. Also, I disagree with its claim of keeping skin matte, it doesn't really.

The reason why I like it so much is the fact that it keeps the dry areas on my face hydrated and the oily parts balanced so that my skin is not overflowing with sebum. If your skin requires heavy-duty hydration, this product is going to disappoint you because it’s a light moisturizer most fitting for combination/oily skin. Overall, I like using this in my daily routine.

You might like it if…
  • You have combination/oily skin
  • You are looking for a light everyday moisturizer
  • You expect it to fight zits (mild acne)
  • You absolutely hate that greasy feeling some moisturizers leave behind
  • It absorbs quickly and feels light on the skin
You might not like it if…
  • You expect it to fight serious acne
  • The scent puts you off
  • You have dry/normal skin
  • You expect heavy-duty hydration
  • You expect it to mattify your skin
