Justine Mattifying Skin Care Range for Oily Skin

I received the Justine Mattifying Skin Care Range for Oily Skin to review. The products I got were a clay cleanser, toning lotion and day cream. There is also a night cream in the range, but I have not tested that out.

Justine has five different ranges for skin care, covering all skin types. There is Mattifying for oily skin, Hydrating for dry skin, Balancing for combination skin, Soothing for sensitive skin, and Perfecting for those of you who suffer from dark spots.

I have tried this product out twice a day for just over two weeks now, and for the most part I must say that I am impressed.

The packaging is a lovely mint green colour, and each product shows which number step it is via little highlighted green blocks IE the cleanser is block one, the toner block two and the day cream block three.

The cleanser is a clay cleanser, and has a thick consistency. A little goes a long way with this, and I find that it does quite a good job in removing oil from my face, and giving it a good deep cleanse.

The toner is alcohol-free, which I love. As someone who suffers from oily skin, I find that an alcohol-based toner works well at first by stripping the skin of oil, but the skin tends to then get too dried out and produces even more oil, leaving me in a worse position than I was before! This toner is different, and although I do feel tightness on my face after using it, I don't feel like it has dried my skin out.

The day cream has SPF 15 which is an absolute must for me. It is sort of gel-like in consistency, which I also like. The only thing that I am not 100% sold on is that it does leave my skin a bit shiny, but it's more of a "healthy glow" look rather than an "oil slick" look! I would, however, prefer if it left my skin completely matt.

All in all I think it is a good skin range for oily skin. I have found that the redness in my skin has also been reduced.

Good quality products for oily skin

I was sent the range as part of a review program. I was very excited to try it as the Justine range is usually of high quality and I am always searching for the perfect product to rebalance my very oily, shiny skin.
The products are easy to apply and it literally takes 3 minutes to do the full routine. Any busy lady can fit this into her morning and evening.

The packaging is very attractive and is a lovely mint green colour. The cleanser is clay based and absorbs oil well and rinses off easily. However, despite being very oily, my skin did feel quite tight after cleansing, so I would not advise anyone with anything other than very oily skin from using it.
The toner is my favourite product out of the range. I never really see the point of toners before, but this one really did a great job of restoring the PH of my skin and easing the tightness I felt after cleansing. I would definitely recommend this product and would go so far as to say that it is essential if you are using this particular cleanser.

The moisturiser has a very light, gel-like texture. It absorbs quickly and easily and left my skin feeling wonderfully soft and nourished. However, it did leave a distinct shine on my skin and since it is marketed as a mattifying product, I have to deduct points for this. It does a great job as a moisturiser but is NOT mattifying, so if shine is your main concern as it is mine, then you will need to follow up with some face powder afterwards to blot your skin.

Overall summary:
Good quality products, a little goes a long way so they are cost-effective. Themoisturiser nourishes and moisturises your skin well but is not mattifying and leaves your face looking shiny. after use.

Justine Mattifying Daily Skin Care Range

I have been using the Cleanser, Toner and Day cream for a week and I am not yet completely sold. The Cleanser is perfect, as it contains clay which absorbs excess oil and leaves my face squeaky clean. The toner is refreshing on the skin and dries quickly. The day cream is my concern, it feels oily when applied and although it is easily absorbed still feels a bit icky and looks shiny. On the plus side, it has an SPF15. All the products smell fantastic. Will continue using and determine if my face needs some getting used to the day cream.
