Are you worried about breakouts and signs of aging? Many people are. So many of my friends use anti-aging products and acne products. Unfortunately, excessive oily skin isn’t just for teenagers. It’s a cruel world! Juara Skincare Black Tea & Ginger Mattefying Moisturizer is an oil-free moisturizer that helps with signs of aging. This is a moisturizer for those that have oily/troubled skin but have concerns about aging/fine lines. Key ingredients include: cinnamon, ginger, hyluronic acid, and sweet black tea.
My experience: I have normal skin and few concerns (at this stage in my life). However, in the summer my skin gets oily. My skin has really been acting out! Recently, I have been getting blackheads around and on my nose. I’ve never had those before! I have sampled Juara Sweet Tea & Ginger Mattefying Moisturizer on my usually well-behaved skin. The formula is a gel-creme. I can barely feel it on my skin because it is light-weight and absorbs rapidly. My skin is left moisturized and cool to the touch. I have been using this moisturizer at night becuase it does not have a sunscreen. However, for this review I started using it during the day. Mineral foundation and “mousse” foundations apply so evenly and nicely over this Sweet Tea & Ginger Moisturizer. In the past, I have used oil-free moisturizers, Clinique Dramatically Different Gel, and powder foundation would apply so unevenly. I would have splotches of foundation and of course, not notice it until I was far from home. This did not happen with the Juara Mattefying Moisturizer. The finish I get with foundation over this moisturizer is almost like using a foundation primer. I feel my pores are less noticeable and the foundation applies evenly. I really do feel this moisturizer kept my skin shine-free. I used way less oil-blotting papers during the day. I went from 4 sheets a day to 1! Oh, and those pesky blackheads are gone. I didn’t see them after 3 days of using this (granted, they weren’t a huge problem to begin with but they drove me crazy). As far as the anti-aging properties, I couldn’t tell because prevention is my concern at this time. I did feel that my skin felt smoother. The ingredients in this moisturizer seem to exfoliate the skin while being gentle.
Scent: This moisturizer has a very faint “spicy” like ginger/cinnamon scent that I believe is naturally occurring. It isn’t abrasive and it fades very quickly. Being a fragrance person, I’m always on the look out for scents in products. I like the gingery essence of this moisturizer.
Who’s this for? Individuals with normal-to-oily or oily skin who are concerned with signs of aging. Juara Sweet Tea & Ginger Mattefying Moisturzier is for people that want a light-weight, barely there feeling moisturizer. I also think this is a nice moisturizer for those with larger and congested pores. (Seriously, something in this formula “purges” impurities from pores). This is also a great moisturizer for oily and sensitive skins. This isn’t really the best moisturizer for me most of the year, but I can see it working for so many people I know.
Who’s this not for? Individuals with normal-to-dry or dry skin. There is not enough moisture in this product for you. I know that this formula is not something I can use most of the year. This is something that I can only use in the summer when my skin is normal to oily. This moisturizer does not contain a sunscreen.
Juara Sweet Black Tea & Ginger Mattefying Moisturizer retails for $48 for 2 oz. It is available at Juara. Check out my Beauty Deals & Promo pages for Juara’s specials.
