Mac Lightful C Marine Bright Softening Lotion might have a confusing name but it’s actually a toner! It is part of their Lightful C permanent line with other 8 interesting skincare products.
I was particularly interested in buying this product because it really has an impressive formula: antioxidants, soothing and repairing agents to leave skin conditioned and more supple, fight signs of aging and even discoloration. That’s due to a good amount of Vitamin C present in the composition but we don’t know exactly the percentage (I would guess around 5% or higher).
At first, I did not know if I liked it or not, I had the impression it left a slightly sticky feeling on my skin. Maybe I was using too much product. But after a good 2 weeks of daily use I started to like it and incorporated it into my skincare routine.
I love the idea of a single product with multiple benefits, and this one is a great one. It’s best if you have normal to dry skin, but it also claims to work for all skin types. I would just be careful not to overdoing it, I use a small amount on a cotton pad or even my hands. I haven’t seen any drastic improvements in skin’s brightness but I guess my skin is ok, and the fact that it can minimize UV-induced dark spots over time is good. And I can tell my skin is more hydrated. The bottle is quite big – 150ml, so it will definitely last a few months, even longer if you use it only once a day like me. But it’s a bit pricey.
