Moisturizer Review: Merle Norman Matte Oil-Free Moisturizer

I don’t know about the rest of you out there with combination skin, but for me, finding a moisturizer that is suitable for my skin type can be a challenge.  My skin can end up looking too dry or too oily depending on the consistency of the moisturizer.  Before relocating to Miami, Florida I had done much research and was finally happy with my moisturizer, but once arriving in Miami, my beloved moisturizer seemed much too heavy.  Once again I would be on the hunt for a new moisturizer…hello trials and errors.

The first moisturizer I tried as a part of the new research process was Merle Norman Matte Oil-Free Moisturizer.  I loved the clean, fresh fragrance of this moisturizer as well as the really pretty matte finish that it gave my skin but unfortunately that is all I loved about it.  My skin still felt dry after I applied the moisturizer and the pretty, matte finish that I loved was replaced by shiny, oily skin after 1/2 hour.  I really wanted this moisturizer to work for me and am still hoping that the reason it did not work as well as I had hoped is because the temp has dropped quite a bit in Miami so it has been colder than normal and once it’s back to the usual heat and humidity I hope that I will be singing the praises of this moisturizer.  Until then, looks like it’s back to trials and errors.

Have you tried this moisturizer? How did it work for you?
