MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion is an interesting innovation of polymer technology, which creates an optical illusion of blurring fine lines and wrinkles while tightening the pores. MAC’s signature charged water technology saturates the skin with both short and long-term hydration. This unique gel-lotion works on your skin to nourish and redensify the complexion. It comes in a unique glass jar with a pump dispenser that locks itself when turned to the other side.

True to its claims
Moisturizes skin well
The nozzle is a hassle.
I got this MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion thinking I made a smart choice. Because I was told that this lotion not only works as a good moisturizer but also as a good makeup base. Having dry skin, this lotion checked off all the requirements. It was like a 2-in-1 benefit for me.
I have been using it for over three weeks now, so let me share my experience of using it.
MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion is the best primer! It shrinks my pores and blurs my fine lines while moisturizing and plumping up my skin.
I use this gel-like lotion every day just like a moisturizer and also under my makeup. If only it had SPF I would have worn it without any sunscreen. And because I use it very often, it is running out so fast. I wish it was a bit cheaper.
I love everything about it but honestly, I am not very happy with the nozzle. Sometimes, it takes a little bit of more effort to get the lotion out. And the tip of the nozzle is usually clogged with dried lotion. If it came with an outer cover, it might be more convenient I guess.
Anyway, despite that, this lotion does a very good job. With the continuous use, my complexion has also lightened, and it looks radiant.

Gives a perfect base for makeup
Conceals fine lines
This is one great emollient primer that blurs, smoothes, and moisturizes skin and also provides a wonderful canvas for a foundation like my MAC Studio Sculpt with SPF. Ever since I got it, I cannot go without this lotion. It also makes the fine lines under my eyes disappear which is the best thing about it. My dry skin gets the nourishment it needs and my face gets the beauty it wants. Simply perfect!

Makes the skin oily
I got this MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion along with Mineralize Foundation. I paid a lot but the results are very disappointing. I have combination skin and this lotion with the foundation makes my skin oily and greasy. I have tried wearing it alone just to see if it was better off, but unfortunately, it was not.
After four months, I finally finished the bottle. There is also another disadvantage of this lotion – and that is the way it is packaged. Once the lotion reaches a low level inside the container, it is almost impossible to get it out. It is very annoying considering the amount I have paid for it.
Other than hydrating my skin, it did nothing for me. I won’t be recommending it to anyone other than, maybe, those with dry skin.

Makes skin smooth
Promotes natural look
Pump dispenser is inconvenient.
I use this MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion both as a moisturizer and a primer. I also use it under my sunscreen. It feels so light and is absorbed like magic. It is the best when I am going for the natural look.
Over one month of continuous use, I find that my pores have tightened and the texture of my skin visibly smoothened. The only thing I found that can be improved is its pump dispenser. It is not as smooth as others I have encountered. Sometimes, it almost feels stuck. So I hope MAC resolves it.
