A men's review: Paul's Choice skin balancing daily mattifying lotion SPF15

About a year ago I finally converted my boyfriend into using skin care and testing it for a few months - I value skin care highly. Now that these months have passed, he has kept his routine and finds it refreshing to take of his skin. Off course his 'skin care' has to be an easy and quick routine, he doesn't like hassling with too many products and doesn't understand why I need that many different things... Initially he wanted to use my products but that could never work as I have dry skin and he has combination skin prone to breakouts - so I got an excuse to shop some more. Using a 1-step cleanser and a different day/night cream is all for now, but I can live with that - hey, as long as he takes care of his skin it's fine by me! This has been his day cream for the last couple of months and I just wanted to share his thoughts/results with you.

Keep your skin smooth, soft and shine-free with this ultra-light, matte finish facial moisturizer. Excellent for normal to oily and combination skin, this silky moisturizer contains potent antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients, and provides excellent daily sun protection. Leaves a weightless, shine-free finish and contains absorbent ingredients to help keep oily areas matte and looking fresh for hours. Contains efficacious, potent antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients to balance and optimize normal to oily and combination skin. Perfect to wear under foundation or powder. Provides excellent daily sun protection. 100% fragrance- and colorant-free

The product is a white and light lotion that spreads easily and doesn't leave a white cast after spreading/sinking in. It has no fragrance and doesn't irritate. The product comes in a tube with a pump which is very convenient. He used about 2-3 pumps to cover his entire face. Afterwards, it leaves a matte finish. During the period of using his skin didn't break out or became irritated in any way. His skin has definitely improved over the last months with a more evened out tone, which is only logical when going from no skincare to a bit of decent skincare. The SPF of 15 is a nice number to cover during a working day, but in summer I prefer to let him use a higher SPF - as do I.

Overall he enjoyed using it, but I probably won't have to repurchase it because there is another day SPF cream that he likes more than this one... You'll read about it soon!
