Elemis Freshskin Mattifying Moisturiser (BEST MOISTURISER EVER)

I have always been one of those people that 'suffers' from oily skin, and I am also one of those people who are incredibly spot prone. I am constantly washing and mosturising my face, and I always find it important to have something that works for me. I always worry that trying a new product may effect my senstive skin, and cause a breakout, so I do get very cautious when chaging my routine.

I was very kindly sent the Elemis Mattifying Moisturiser from the freshskin range which is aimed at teenagers and young adults, when I was asked which product I would like to try, I immedietly chose the mattifying moisturiser. I am always very concious of my oily skin, and have tried many products in the past to try and tone down the natural oils. This moisturiser is AMAZING, usually when it comes to reviewing a product I like to leave it several weeks, so that I can try it and really witness the results, but it only took me two days to realise that this is the best moisturiser I have ever used. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated without feeling overly moisturised. It also does exactly what it says, and mattifys my skin, I apply foundation over the top and go all day without feeling conciously oily. It also smells delicious, very citrusy and fresh (be warned, it really stings if it goes in your eyes, as I discovered!) 

I highly reccomend this to anyone that has very oily skin, and to anyone that wants a healthy, fresh moisturiser! You can buy it here or here. Its not the cheapest of products, but it is well worth the money, I will definetly be re-purchasing this!!

Do you use any of Elemis's products? What do you think of the Freshskin range?
Would you like to try this moisturiser?


  1. This sounds like a great winter moisturiser. Its quite hard to find one that doesnt make the skin oily. I Like Elemis they have such a great range of products

    1. This is perfect! I love it so far, makes me feel much more confident! :)

  2. i have never tried this before xx


  3. 20 pounds wow its pricey lol. I might try it though cuz there hasn't been a good moisturizer for me. I would wash my face then it would get all dry and the moisturizers I have used so far either makes my skin too oily later in the day or it doesnt moisturize it enough. Thanks for the review!
