Erno Laszlo Antioxidant Mattifying Complex SPF 15
I've been trying many mattifying moisturizers for oily skin lately. Most are quite good. The most recent has been Erno Laszlo's Antioxidant Mattifying Complex.
What stood out about this one was how quickly it sinks in. You can't even feel it on your face and you have to blend fast. There's no tacky feel which even some oil free ones can have. It has SPF which is definitely a bonus. It also has aloe, cucumber and lemongrass and witch hazel to heal, calm and refresh skin.
It does help mattify the cheek area. Even in the intense humid heat we've been having I noticed the cheek area having much less "glisten" than normal . I don't use it in the T- Zone so can't say about that, although I might give it a try there. It's not super light yet it is. The consistency is thick enough but not on your face. A good thing.
This was my first foray into Erno Laszlo skincare along with their Special Skin soap which has been working well. Cleans and softens but no dryness. I've eyed Erno Lazlo a long time, ever since I read Garbo used it and saw that they have an oily skin arsenal.
You do know it was Greta Garbo's skincare choice, right? She had the most amazing skin I've ever seen. ( If you don't know Garbo, go rent Ninotchka right now.)
Antioxidant Mattifying Complex SPF 15 is $ 75.00 for 3 oz
