Graftobian Oxyderm Moisturizer Review

I currently have been using this moisturizer on myself and my clients for over a few months now! It has passed my standards so I would love to share this with everyone!

VERSATILITY AND EASE OF USE – 4.7/5
Scoop out and apply to area. Too bad it’s not in a pump so you require a spatula if you want to keep it sanitary.

FEELING – 4.7/5
Absorbs instantly into the skin within 15seconds.
Gel-like texture, at the same time there are ‘tiny particles’ that will absorb and melt into the skin. ‘Gritty’ for the first few seconds and once you go over it again with your finger, it melts.
Once everything is absorbed, it feels very hydrated, super smooth and the skin is very evened and NOT shiny – matte finish.

EFFECTIVENESS – 5/5
Skin is soft, hydrated, even-toned, MATTE finish. Looks like skin that is not excessively shiny but rather, healthy skin.

PRICE – 4.7/5
I bought this for $25 at CameraReadyCosmetics.com but they have now increased their price to $33 🙁

AVAILABILITY – 4/5
You have to purchase this online as it’s from the US. Unless you have a makeup store that sells this locally of course!

SHELF LIFE – 5/5
Pretty long, and you’ll love it so much you won’t have to worry about it sitting on the shelf!!

FRAGRANCE – 5/5
No fragrance added and I don’t smell any natural fragrance.

Cons

Nothing I can think of other than the ‘gritty’ texture (it’s not unpleasant because it melts after a second) and it’s not as gritty as sand, more like fine particles.

Overall Score

– 9.45/10

Recommended?

Absolutely!! Good for dry, dehydrated, combination and even oily skin.
Currently I use this moisturizer and without it, my super dry skin wouldn’t be able to keep all the hydration.
I did an experiment where I switched creams to see if I could get the same results, and I couldn’t over a week. My skin started to feel like it would lose the moisture as the days went by.

Makeup artists: Excellent to keep in your kit for the people with flaky, dry skin. Makeup doesn’t sit well and will turn very texturized if the skin is dry. If you’re going for beauty looks, well moisturized skin is a must. My foundations glide on smoothly and beautifully with this moisturizer.
