How to get well-hydrated skin with a matte finish

For those who aren’t fans of the dewy look (no thanks to oily skin), achieving a matte complexion is likely your everyday beauty look. But have you ever found yourself treading the fine line between keeping your skin hydrated and perfecting a matte finish, but to find that you can’t reach a middle ground?

While there are other methods to keep your skin in check—such as patting on a layer of finishing powder and the like, why not try skincare that gives you both without compromising on either benefit? Take on La Mer’s latest Moisturizing Matte Lotion that is inspired by the comfortable texture and wealth of benefits of super lotions. What makes it different than your regular lotion is a unique “capsule technology” that allows moisture spheres to penetrate deep into the skin, while retaining a fresh feeling by way of an outer gel layer. For a matte finish, a combination of natural water-born ingredients was incorporated in the formula. This includes clay, sea minerals, and kelp powder that are all processed into a micro-fine powder that coats each capsule. Not forgetting, La Mer’s signature Miracle Broth is infused within the formula alongside Lime Tea Concentrate to soothe irritation and renew your skin’s radiance. Moisturised skin with a shine-control matte finish? Check.


La Mer Moisturizing Matte Lotion (RM1,060) is now available at Robinsons in The Garden, Isetan in Suria KLCC and Bandar Utama, and Parkson in Pavilion.
