Stop the presses – I’ve discovered a French range I never knew existed. Now you guys are probably already up to speed on Matis but this is a never-seen-it-or-heard-of-it-before-in-my-life skincare moment for me.
So when the ladies behind the French brand reached out and asked would I like to try a couple of products, it was a resounding ‘Oui!’ from me.
The professional salon brand is, in fact, 80 years old and specialises in active, anti-ageing ingredients. In other words, it’s a brand that is right up my street. I was sent three products to try and here’s how I’ve been getting on.
Matis Hyaluronic Performance Moisturiser, €79.95
I do love a bit of hyaluronic in my life (and on my cheeks). This super hydrating and plumping moisturiser does exactly want it says on the tin. I’ve been using this as my night cream as it’s a bit too rich under my foundation. If you are super dry, however, your skin will drink this stuff up.
Matis Flash Gum Skin Perfector, €35.95
I can safely say I’ve never used a ‘flash gum’ before. Basically, it’s a primer and a good one at that. The melt-in formula leaves a powdery finish and skin looks even and smooth. I’m totally digging this at the moment.
Matis Response Purete Clay Mask, €27.55
If you suffer with oily skin like moi, then this clay mask is for you. The yellow clay purifies and absorbs sebum without actually drying into a hard mask. Formulated with extracts of enantia chlorantha (an African tree), my skin felt super soft after using this. It also smells gorge which is always a bonus in my book. Lovely.
So ladies, have you heard of Matis?
