e.l.f. Cosmetics Daily Hydration Moisturizer SPF 15 REVIEW

It is not conventional of me to do any sort of review, but I was so compelled to reviewing this particular item.  So here it goes…

First of, I absolutely love e.l.f. make-up brushes and have been a fan of them since their earlier years before they were sold in stores.  This item is my first face item I have tried from their line.

I visited the e.l.f. store and thought $8 for 2.53 oz of face product is a great deal.  It was winter time and I wanted my face to feel soft and hydrated and because it was my first e.l.f. face item I was really excited to try it out the following day.

I tried it out for a little over a week and it was good product to use to get me through the day.  After a few days of use I would notice my face get flakey and dry!  A complete opposite of what the packaging says!!  I stopped using the moisturizer for a couple of days and low and be hold, my skin was not dry or flaking.  After a few days of rest from the product I wanted to give it a go again and after a two consecutive uses my face began to dry again!

So again, I stopped using the product.  A few months have passed since winter and I thought, “Let’s try using the moisturizer again since it’s warmer now.”  A single day of use and the same results, dry and flaking skin.  Its details are..

This lightweight, broad-spectrum SPF 15 moisturizer helps hydrate and nourish for glowing, healthy looking skin.  Infused with Purified Water and skin-nourishing antioxidants from Vitamin E and Grape.” 

I have normal skin and take good care of my face, but it’s odd to not have this product work for me despite its description.  I do not usually explore outside of their make-up brushes, but this for me is a no-go.

e.l.f. haul at e.l.f. Studio New York

I went to New York last week and heading to the e.l.f. store was on my list.  Here’s what I came out with.

I’m not too crazy on e.l.f. make-up, but I do love the studio brushes.  I have enough nail polish, but what the heck..I added two more to my collection.  I love how you’re able to sample the make-up at the store.  Down side, they don’t have all the products they offer online and the customer service could use some work.
