Before I go all out with my review of M.A.C Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Gel, let me give you a piece of advice. Hear, oh hear, oily skin people! Never use a cream-based moisturizer if you want to keep the greasiness at bay. Cream-based products are just not got us, okay?

So now, back to review. I bought this moisturizer only because it’s gel-based and claims to be be formulated with mineralize charged water. I started using it two months back as my daily moisturizer. Since I live in a cold place and mostly stay indoors, I am not really bothered by the absence of SPF in this moisturizer.

Anyway, this product comes in a tub which I am not very fond of because it gets messy. However, its texture is AMAZING! It is feather soft, blends easily, and gets absorbed like it is a part of your skin. As I mentioned, it has been two months of daily use, yet there’s enough left to last me for another two months. Unbelievable, right? I think that’s because just a little amount is needed to cover my entire face and neck.

I tried using it at night but NOPE! It’s too rich for my oily skin. The next morning, I woke up looking like a soaked sponge of oil. So that’s never happening again.

My final verdict is, M.A.C Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Gel is a decent moisturizer that deeply hydrates my skin, and pushes the barriers of oil to make my skin soft and fresh for a long time. It is a must-try product.

PROS

None

CONS

Expensive

Contains silicone

Not moisturizing enough


When I say some friends can be very manipulative, can you relate? Either that, or I’m very gullible. I got talked into buying this moisturizer when all I wanted was a nice shade of lipstick.
I have been using it for two weeks now, and I will boldly say that this moisturizer is nothing but a sugar-coated moisturizer. It does not help my dry skin at all. My skin does not feel hydrated and it contains silicone.

So ladies, don’t be fooled when your fine lines get blurred. I was flattered myself too. But when I researched and found out that it’s because it has silicone, I was very disappointed. For the price it comes at, M.A.C Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Gel is a waste of money. Drowning in my misery!

4.6/5

Water-based

CONS

Expensive


M.A.C has done it once again! Its Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Gel is one of my favorite moisturizers because it is water-based. It is pure and feels super fresh. This is another product that passed my sensitive skin test! I love the way it feels on my face. It hydrates my face without making it extra oily. I've been using it for almost a year and a half, and it's worth every penny.

3.3/5

PROS

Gets absorbed quickly

Suitable for all skin types

Can be used as a primer

Makes makeup last longer

CONS

No SPF

Insufficient amount


This is the best moisturizer out there. I am a makeup artist, and M.A.C is one of my favorites. I always use it on my clients regardless of their skin type as the base for foundation. It sits very smoothly, and gives an even surface for makeup application. I use it myself as a night cream. I don’t want to use it during the day because it does not offer sun protection. A bummer, really. Also, since I use it very often, the tub doesn’t last long for me. I wish it came in a bigger size.
