Thalgo Ultra Matte Moisturizng Fluid promises a matte skin that is at the same time moisturized.
I have a total of 4ml of this fluid and during the week I’ve been using this, I have spent only half.
I was hoping that this might be a much more affordable (and more moisturizing) version of Sisley Tropical Resins Lotion, but alas, it is not.
The fluid has a very light consistency and a light scent. It spreads easily and a little goes a long way. It is mattifying, but only upon the application. The effect unfortunately doesn’t last for a very long time – the maximum is an hour and a half.
It delivers more on the moisturizing part. My skin is oily, but dehydrated and it starts to flake as soon as I use a product which is not very moisturizing. After a week of using Thalgo fluid, my skin is still as normal as it can get. I haven’t noticed any dehydration.
During this period, the fluid didn’t break me out. (If the product is bad for me, I’ll usually break out in the first two days of using it).
I would not recommend this product for oily skin as there are much better products (afore-mentioned Sisley or L’Occitane Rice Fluid) out there. However, this might be a nice choice for someone with normal to combination skin.
