Review: Mark For Goodness Face Moisturizer


Why do some products have crazy long names? This is actually Mark For Goodness Face Antioxidant Skin Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 with Blueberries and Dark Chocolate. That's a mouthful and a half. Anyhow, this is a moisturizer that I have been using for a while now, and thought it was time to share with everyone. I have a few posts lagging around that I hadn't gotten around to finishing, and it seems most of them are skin care products, so this week is unofficially skin care week.


I have to start off by saying how much I love the packaging of this moisturizer! Unlike your typical pot type packaging, this moisturizer has a dispensing top. I hate dipping my fingers into pots of things both for bacteria/ germ-y reasons, but also because it gets up under your finger nail and *bleck* Anyway, this pot has a lid, and an inner lid that you push down to dispense the product. Ingenious!

The dispensing top dispenses just the right amount based on how hard you push.

This particular Mark moisturizer is out of their collection of products geared towards dry skin. I fall more into combination skin, normal for the most part, but with major dry areas, so I figured this would be an alright option for me and I like that it has a good dose of SPF. The moisturizers (all varieties) retail for $20 and never seem to go on sale.

"If you're feeling protective about your skin, then try this oil free moisturizer that helps protect skin's natural beauty, and is packed with a powerful antioxidant combo of dark chocolate, blueberry extract, lemon fruit, European herb extract and Canadian willow herb extract, plus the all important SPF 30 to guard against the sun's damaging rays." - Mark.



The moisturizer itself is a tad on the thick side, but it isn't heavy. It absorbs quickly and does not leave an oily feel to your skin. It does not have any sort of "foodie" scent that might be implied by it's delicious sounding name. Overall I am pretty happy with this moisturizer, it does indeed do a great job on hydrating dry skin. My only issue is that if I use it on my entire face before bed, my non-dry spots (particularly my cheeks and forehead) are quite oily the next morning. I don't notice the oiliness so much during the day if I have makeup on though.


The packaging break down.

Of course there is one other downside to this product. The size. Not so much the size, but the tricky way they make you think that you are buying a normal size pot of moisturizer. When you get the pot it looks like the typical size pot facial moisturizers tend to come in. It isn't until you take a peek at how the pot's dispenser system works that you see the truth. There is a shelf about a half an inch into the pot, the other three quarters (more than that actually) is nothing but container. Sure, they tell you you are getting 1.7 fluid oz. of product, but the way that they went about packaging the product is a bit sneaky. For that reason, and the fact that the $20 price tag does not match the amount of product you get, I will most likely not repurchase this product, especially when you can pick up great drugstore brands for far less.

  22. I enjoy what you guys are up too. This type of clever work and reporting! Keep up the wonderful works guys I've incorporated you guys to my own blogroll.I have been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours nowadays, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty price enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the net will likely be a lot more helpful than ever before. 토토사이트
