MAC Studio Moisture Cream- Review & Swatch
Hello lovely ladies 🙂
I have had super oily-combi skin throughout my life- like you could literally fry an egg with the oil on my face after a long day in Kolkata :-/ Hence my moisturisers are gel based, masks are charcoal/multani mitti based and cleansers are purifying oil zapping ones. Surprise surprise! Pune has zapped all oil from my face in a whoosh leaving me feeling fuzzy and stupid and dry, on the look out for a rich face cream! Enter MAC Studio Moisture Cream 😀
What MAC Says-
A super-rich creamy moisturizer boosted with skin-nourishing extracts including passion fruit, spinach leaf, green tea, algae, wheat germ and coconut. Moistens, feeds, firms and protects the skin. Promotes a healthy radiance. Diminishes the appearance of fine lines. Good for day and night.
Price- 33$ for 50ml in USA and 2500/- INR (when I bought) here for 50ml :-/
My take on the MAC Studio Moisture Cream-
The Studio Moisture Cream comes in an unhygienic sturdy white plastic tub with a plastic protective cover and a matte black screw-on lid. Apart from the yucky factor of dipping your fingers in every time to scoop out the cream and in turn, disintegrating its antioxidant ingredients faster, the tub is travel-friendly and sleek!
The cream is medium thick in texture, off-white in color, very lovely, soft and creamy and feels so lovely on application 🙂 My skin drinks it up in a jiffy and I am left behind with hydrated, supple skin without any greasy/tacky feel 🙂 I have tried out the cream during both day and night and I love it both ways! It’s quite rich for a nightcap and I wake up to nice, soft skin in the morning 🙂 It does not have SPF which would have prevented me from using it before in hot,humid climate, but in dry weather it’s hardly an issue to layer a sunscreen over this!
I use it as my primer for makeup as well since umm..well I never had a primer before ‘coz my overactive oil glands used to do the job but now this cream hydrates and smoothens my skin for a hassle-free makeup application 🙂
The fragrance is amazing, subtle, identical to the fresh fix+ spray and I adore it <3

Do I recommend MAC Studio Moisture Cream?
Despite being so expensive, I am totally in love with this MAC Studio Moisture Cream for its hydration, rich creamy feel, fresh scent and how little I need every time for my entire face and neck 🙂 Skin & hair should definitely be invested in IMO and this cream is a good option to treat your parched thirsty skin 🙂
