M.A.C Cosmetics is extremely well-known globally for its fast-changing, adaptable and wide range of cosmetics products, leading the makeup trend in major runways seasons after seasons and creating backstage looks around the world that are hugely successful and marveled by many. The new Lightful C range skincare? Now, that is something new to us. When we were presented the chance to give them a try, we happily accepted to see how these two products fair - M.A.C Lightful C Marine-Bright Formula Softening Lotion and M.A.C Lightful C Marine-Bright Formula Moisture Cream.
If you had followed us for a while, you would know that we super love hydrating skincare, and brightening would be something even more intriguing to us! Who wouldn't like to have a more radiant and brightened healthy skin, right? We have been using both products for about a month now. So, first up, the Lighful C Marine-Bright Formula Softening Lotion.
As its name suggests, this is a softening lotion that helps slog away your dead skin cells, removes impurities and it is used right after your daily cleansing step in skincare regime. It is infused with high-power impact of Marine-Bright Formula and Super-Duo Charged Water. Pour onto cotton, we wipe our entire face and neck with this super moist lotion and it feels extremely relaxing and conditioning. This clear watery lotion helps condition and smoothen depleted skin, we noticed it does assists in cleaning out some debris that is left over even with facial cleansing, which is really good. Face is left feeling really hydrated, subtle and soft. Furthermore, a potent addition of Vitamin C gives skin its brightening effect. We really love this product as we feel it does give the hydration that our skin much needed and we feel it does what it is supposed to do.
Packaging wise, it comes in a newly packaged silver holographic pattern bottle with quite a hefty solid cap. We also love a hint of fresh smell that comes with the lotion!
Don't be fooled by the name "cream" as one may think that the texture would be heavy. Just the opposite, this moisture cream is made up of the same component as the softener, with both Marine-Bright Formula and Super-Duo Charged Water. Comes in a tub, the cream, white in colour, is velvety smooth, almost gel-like in texture and glides on the skin smoothly and surprisingly dries off really quickly. It does not feel heavy on the skin, yet making us feel much hydrated, as if locking in the natural moisture that our skin produces.
As for both their brightening effect, we do not notice a significantly huge change, be FEELING on the skin wise, the tactile experience, on the hydrating side, these two skincare products definitely rank high on our list and for that, we enjoyed using them tremendously! If you are still wondering how M.A.C. skincare products fair, perhaps you can give them a try yourself. You may be delightfully surprised, like we do *_^
