Review: Aubrey Organics Clarifying Therapy Moisturizer

Consistency?– Loose; a little goes a long way, though not necessarily in a good way.  Takes some effort to rub in and sets to a nice finish once you rub it in.  Absorbs OK, but starts to get slick with some wear.

Aubrey ClarifyingMoisturizer

How much does this product retail for?– $16.95, available though, Amazon, and retailers like Whole Foods.

What can you expect from this product? – While it is supposed to be a lightweight formula suitable for oily/acne prone skin, this moisturizer felt slick both on my bare face and under makeup after not much wear, and I was shiny and disgruntled.

Bunk or Buy? Meh, kinda bunk. I was hopeful for the Aubrey reformulations and about the Oily/Acne Prone Skin line in particular and I like other products in the line, but this moisturizer is frankly not that great.  Maybe it would be a better option as the season wears on and my skin gets a little drier, but I don’t love it enough to try.  Also, it’s for oily skin, so waiting for my skin to be a little drier kind of defeats the purpose for me.  I much prefer the EveryDay Basics Moisturizer for Normal/Oily Skin, which retails for $9.99 and in my opinion provides moisture without the greasy/slick feeling and felt way better on my bare face and under makeup.
