Today I am writing about a new face cream, which I saw in a TV ad Mixa Sensitive Skin Expert soothing SPF15 care anti-redness CC cream. This CC crème is a triple efficacy anti-redness cream, which aims to soothe, correct and unify your complexion.It’s intended for Sensitive skin, prone to redness. Mixa is actually a sister brand from L’oreal so I wonder if their CC cream is the same thing as Mixa’s? Besides that the product contains arnica blossom flower, which is known to promote micro circulation and helps neutralize redness. Vitamin B3, caffeine and cold cream, which help the skin, stay cool. Besides containing SPF 15, the cream is also a hypoallergenic formula that was tested under medical supervision for sensitive skin so that no irritations occur. The cream is paraben and alcohol free and is non-comedogenic. It promises that the skin will be instantly soothed and moisturized. Mixa also claims that after 8 weeks redness will be reduced 82% (tested on 39 people- kind of a small number).

All right after that long intro of Mixa sensitive skin expert anti-redness CC cream, I have to state how my skin has felt after I have been using it for two weeks now. The cream has a green tint to it what does neutralize redness to some point (mild redness. I mean it won’t cover or make the redness disappear but it will seem a bit less red, but the redness will still be visible. The texture of the cream is a bit thick but yet gel like. The smell of the cream is horrible, it smells like some medicine cream, border line “plastic”. I personally find the scent too strong and repulsive. When I apply the cream it feels “dry” this is the first time a cream that claimed to moisturizer my skin actually felt dry on my skin. I felt my skin lose hydration (normally I use very hydrating creams) and I felt that the skin gave my skin a stinging sensation so yeah no reduce heat sensation feeling but the opposite of that on my skin. My skin absorbed the cream in really fast. The good thing is that my oily skin did feel matte and it did stay that way for a good few hours.

So to conclude this beauty product review of Mixa sensitive skin expert anti-redness CC cream, I wanted to add that the ingredient list isn’t too impressive to start of with. In two weeks I didn’t notice any changes to my skin’s redness. I have sensitive and thin skin and I found that the cream was a bit too “aggressive” for my very sensitive and thin skin. I will not be repurchasing this cream because I cannot stand the strong scent that does not fade. Overall, I found that this cream really didn’t do anything that it promised and does nothing for my skin. I found that it does the opposite as to what it promises, it dries my skin and irritates it. I am sad to give this a less than flying colors review since the TV ad seemed so promising. This cream is just not for my skin.
