MAC skincare!? Pah! It’s strange when companies famous of make up then make skincare because I always wonder if it’s just a pointless add on. Having said that I adore Shu Uemura skincare and NARS (although they are both Japanese made, and Japanese brands in general cross over skincare and cosmetics quite well).
I did buy this Complete Comfort Creme a while ago after the MUA used it on me
after a cosmetic trial. I liked how thick it felt on my dry sensitive skin:
A moisturiser formulated to instantly rehydrate the skin and provide immediate and ongoing relief from redness and irritation. Ultra-creamy, provides high-comfort wear while providing sensitive skin with the soothing benefits associated with its calming plant-and marine-based formula.
MAC Complete Comfort Creme is a super rich thick cream that feels instantly soothing for people with dehydrated skin. It definitely deals with the dryness but the sensitivity – I would say I still had some mild tingling on the sorest parts of my skin.
It comes in a 50ml tub which is a fairly generous amount.
The cream looks white in the photo but I think has a pale pink colour to it. There’s a plastic scent to it – I really can’t think of a better way of describing it then a new tupperware box which I am not fond of but I can certainly live with. I’d prefer this over a super strong perfume in the product, which I can’t stand but it does make the product feel a bit cheap.
I used this for a while to the build up to my wedding. This is one of those simple bland creams that work really well when you are dry all over, but I would’nt say it is the most calming or soothing.
I am going to keep this and move on to another cream for now, because I want to use something that offers a bit more (I am more concerned with pigmentation and skin unevenness at the moment) but whenever my skin feels really dehydrated I will definitely use this again.
This costs £23.50 – it’s on the MAC website. I got it on counter.
Have you ever tried MAC skincare?
