Please excuse my incredibly uncreative title but due to impending finals and papers, I want to be succinct as possible. I recently purchased the
The DDF sample comes with .05 oz of product which is a little less than what a full sized tube contains. Ironically, this product is not available on
This is what the cream looks like out of the tube and it is about how much I use to cover my entire face in the morning. The moisturizer is light and easy to blend into the skin. I can not detect a scent when I try to smell the product on my finger but as I apply it to my face I get the faintest whiff of sunscreen. This is not bad at all because the smell dissipates quickly. After applying, my normally combination oily skin feels moisturized but not heavy. After a few minutes my face feels like I have nothing on it at all which is good because I do not like heavy moisturizers or sunscreens. Although this claims to be mattifying, my skin does show spots of shine throughout the day but nothing too bad. I would not say that this helps keep my oil at bay but at the same time it does not contribute to the oiliness that some sunscreens may. After using this for about a week, I have not had any negative reactions to this so I would recommend this to people with acne prone skin. Of course, everyone is different so keep in mind that what works for me, may not work for you and vice versa.
I am pleased with this sample and glad that it was in the kit. I don't know if I would want to shell out $42 for a tube of this because it is a bit much. I have several more samples to try and I'm guessing they will last me until the end of the year so I don't have to make a decision anytime soon.
