e.l.f. Skincare; First Impressions & Review

Finally! I feel like a little kid during Christmastime, in front of the mounds of presents. But first things first, doesn’t the packaging kind of remind you of Dior’s Hydra Life line? The powdery baby blue, transparency and opaqueness.. yes? Or is it just me?

But oh well, let’s get into it!

Daily Hydration Moisturizer (75mL / 2.53 fl.oz) – $8.00

As if I don’t have enough moisturizers already! But this was too hard to pass up. I’m always looking for something that moisturizes my skin without making it feel like it’s overly greasy and slick. I do have extremely oily skin, so I find it hard to pick out one moisturizer out of the many in the market that can keep my skin feeling hydrated, but also keep my oil at bay. Unfortunately, this doesn’t cater to oil control. But I must say, it’s a nice moisturizer! The scent is light and refreshing, and it has a nice, gel-like consistency. It sinks into the skin and does not leave any greasy film on top. For $8.00, you are getting quite a bit of product, and it also has a pump, which makes it a no-brainer when it comes to cleanliness and travel situations. It’s very lightweight, so you can even mix some into your foundation or BB/CC Creams to create your ideal consistency and coverage.

Illuminating Eye Cream (14g / 0.49oz.) – $12.00

There’s no scent with this one! I may have some sight trouble, but my sense of smell is not to be messed with. There really is no scent (if at all, it must be really, reallllly light) to this product. At first glance, you would think that with that size, it’s a moisturizer or a night cream. It’s almost equivalent to one of those Olay moisturizer jars. So that’s a nice amount of eye cream!

When applied around the eye area, I do feel a slight cooling & tingling sensation. It makes the area under my eyes feel a little more plump and less heavy, if that makes sense. It works well enough on its own or under/over a moisturizer, being as it is not sticky or greasy. On my oily eyes and skin, I find that there is just enough moisture. But for drier eyes, I cannot speak for them.

So are these product revolutionary and you NEED them? Absolutely not. But if you are someone that likes trying new things, they are definitely very affordable and do as they promise.
