Earlier this week I received a deluxe sample of the GlamGlow Volcasmic Matte Glow Moisturizer from Sephora and being a huge fan of the GlamGlow line I was very excited to try out their new moisturizer.
What’s to love?
The GlamGlow Volcasmic Matte Moisturizer is not cheap at $54 for 1.7 oz/ 50 mL however after using it I’m thinking I’d like a full-sized jar.
When I opened the jar the product was completely different from what I expected. When you first put your finger on top it feels spongey, this is not a liquified or wet moisturizer. You need to press you finger in a little to get it out of the jar, it almost feels like a soft lip balm. It actually felt a little greasy on my finger too but when I applied it to my face it blends and absorbs into a matte finish which is really beautiful.
I used the GlamGlow Brightening Treatment (orange jar) first which does leave my face a little red. Then I applied the Volcasmic Matte Moisturizer. As you can see in the photo I don’t look greasy at all, although this pic isn’t the greatest…46 and no make-up is a little scary : )
The good news it that it hydrated my skin, smoothed my wrinkles and left my face feeling amazing. I am super impressed with this product and it smells like an orange Creamsicle which is so nice.
Their claim is that it “hydrates without adding shine” and I have to say that was the case with me and I do have oily skin. I have such a hard time finding a moisturizer that works without being too slick and I think I’ve found one in Volcasmic.
I’m going to use up the rest of the sample and then I might just splurge on this. My birthday is next week so that might be a good excuse to get it!
