My skin has always been on the oily side, but lately and usually during winter I noticed some dryness around my lip area and below my cheeks, yet still my T-zone remained oily. I’ve been searching for a good moisturizer to deal with my skin issue and I wanted it to be really moisturizing but at a good price point. I happen to have a sample of Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Mega Moisturizer for Normal/Dry Skin and I really really liked it a lot, so I checked the price of its regular jar size of 1.7 oz and at $53 it seems like a very good deal. There was also another kind of this cream, the ones made for Normal/Combination Skin which I have yet to try, but I decided on the first kind because the dry spots on my face are really flaking and have never been relieved by most moisturizers I’ve tried.
The thing that made me love this cream is its intense hydration to my face. It’s extremely hydrating but at the same it didn’t weigh on my skin. It completely moisturized the dry spots around my lips and below my cheek area. I usually it use it at night and my skin stays moisturized the next day.
Apart from the intense hydration that this Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Mega Moisturizer gives, I also notice that it seems to soothe the redness of my face. In fact, I don’t think I’ve seen a lot of moisturizers like this. Probably La Mer? They both have the same silky and lightweight feel on the face while having this luxurious texture.
The smell of this cream is very interesting, something like a blend of spf, lemon and egg. LOL. But it’s not an annoying scent, in fact, the scent of this Laura Mercier Mega Moisturizer is very mild. Speaking of Spf, well, the only drawback I might say with this cream is the low spf, but it doesn’t really bother me since I mostly use it at night. When used in the morning, as what it’s supposed to be, I find that this really works well with my BB or CC Creams or any foundation without an issue. Although you may have to be careful and not use a lot of this moisturizer during the summer because it might make you look too oily.
Verdict. I love this moisturizer and this is definitely one of my holy grail for being one of the best winter facial moisturizer that also works well on oily skin. For sure Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Mega Moisturizer Spf 15 will be repurchased several times.
