    MAC Mineralized Charged Water Moisture Gel – Review

    21 april 2015
    MAC Mineralized Charged Water Moisture Gel

    Every morning you can find me in the bathroom, cleansing my face and applying a moisturiser and an eye-cream. They are essential to my skincare routine and I never go a day without them. I’m perfectly fine going outside with no make-up, but I’ll never skip on moisturiser. Why? Because it’s important to keep your face hydrated so it stays smooth and soft. It makes you look radiant and healthy and it helps applying your make-up better! And that’s something we all want, right?

    Today I’ll be reviewing a product that helps you hydrate your face and is suitable for all skin types:

    MAC Mineralized Charged Water Moisture Gel

    I tried this moisturiser for a good 3 weeks and brought it with me on my week at the Belgian coast. This product already made a short appearance herebut I wanted to write a review on it because I love it so much :-)

    The MAC Cosmetics website about MAC Mineralized Charged Water Moisture Gel:

    “An ultra-light, gel-like cream that absorbs instantly to give the skin intense hydration.
    Infused with our exclusive Super-Charged Water technology, this formula leaves skin softer, more luminous. Use day or night.”

    Let me start off by saying the texture is grrreat! I was a bit nervous on using a gel-like moisturiser on a daily basis. But it turns out I like this kind of moisturiser more than a cream! It’s just so light and applies like a dream. Also, you don’t have to apply a ton of it on your face. The gel spreads out really well, so a little goes a long way!

    The moisturiser looks like a white gel, but immediately becomes completely transparent once you put it on your skin.

    The MAC Mineralized Charged Water Moisture Gel was quickly absorbed into my skin, as promised. So as soon as you’ve applied it, you’re ready to apply make-up or go out the door.

    As I said above, I brought this moisturiser with me to the sea where the weather was changing back and forth between windy and sunny. I thought that such a light moisturiser wouldn’t cut it to protect and hydrate my face enough to combat the changing weather. But it couldn’t be further from the truth! The whole week my skin was left soft and smooth, and my face didn’t seem to mind the elements. It also didn’t get super oily in combination with a sunscreen, so that’s also a plus!

    This product is suitable for all skin types.
    For oily or acne prone skin, the gel feels very light and isn’t greasy at all. The gel does moisturise really well, without being too heavy so it definitely gives a helping hand for dry skin. It’s versatile enough for a combination skin and normal skin. And even with sensitive skin, which I have, you can’t go wrong.

    Their website suggests that you can use the MAC Mineralized Charged Water Moisture Gel at night. Of course this totally depends on you, I just like to save it for the daytime and use another night cream instead.

    I really like the MAC Mineralized Charged Water Moisture Gel and would definitely pick it again. I find that if there would be an SPF in it, it would be perfect. It’s a detail that can be perfectly solved by applying sunscreen afterwards, but it just would make this product more perfect for me. In general, I’m undeniably in love with this moisturiser!

    Here’s a quick round-up for this astonishing product:

    Texture: light, gel-like, non-sticky
    Hydration: intense, without being too heavy
    Suitable for: all skin types

    So hooray for another possible holy grail! :-)

    If you’re a twenty-something like me, it’s important to start a skincare routine. Although it may seem a bit early to think about wrinkles and dark spots, your skin – and future you – will thank…
