Lightful is a new skincare line from MAC that focuses on brightening the skin. Originally aimed at the Asian market, it is now available on the MAC website for anyone who wants to benefit from the lightening and brightening qualities of these products.
The Lightful Ultramoisture Creme is a lightweight moisturizer that is almost like a gel. It is very hydrating without being greasy. It can be used at night or during the day under makeup. In fact, it is perfect for priming your face before applying foundation because it helps eliminate dry patches.
Lightful Foaming Cream Cleanser
The Lightful Cleanser is a very gentle face wash that somehow manages to wash off all your makeup without being harsh or drying. It actually leaves skin feeling soft and smooth and looking a little glowy. MAC really got it right with this cleanser. Although it’s very expensive compared to drugstore face washes, you really only need a tiny amount so it should last for a long time.
Lightful Charged Essence
Lightful Essence is a very light liquid that helps plump your skin. It doesn’t really seem to do too much in the way of brightening or lightening, but it does help seal in moisture and make your skin tone more even. I think this is one to skip because it really doesn’t do much.
Lightful Softening Lotion
Lightful Softening Lotion is like a toner in the sense that it leaves skin feeling fresh and helps to even out your skin. It contains Vitamin C, which helps to lighten dark spots over time and give the skin a little glow. It also has a very fresh scent.
This is a small collection that is perfect for anyone looking for a brighter complexion. There are a few duds here, but the cleanser in particular does a great job and is definitely worth a try.
