The Matriskin RL/3 cream comes in a white pharmaceutical-like cardboard box on which all of the product information are inscribed on. Inside the box, you can find an enclosed leaflet that contains a full skin-care programme using different Matriskin products. The cream itself comes in a sleek, transparent container with a white lid that closes securely to prevent any leakage. It also has an inner liner that you can preserve after each use.
This cream has a very light smell that does not cause any irritation when applied.
RL/3 has a slightly creamy composition that glides easily over the skin and is instantly absorbed by it.
Cleanse your face well and dry it. Then, smooth out a small amount of cream onto your face and massage it in gently. You can apply this cream in the morning and in the evening on a daily basis.
This Matriskin cream gives an instant effect directly upon application. It will make you feel as though you’ve applied a revitalizing dose of moisturizer onto your dry skin.
It became much easier to smooth out makeup products onto the skin right after the first use, while we used to struggle with that previously due to dehydration.
After five days of use, the skin became remarkably soft and the cracks less apparent. This was due to the important ingredients it contains such as Hyaluronic acid, one of the most essential components for hydration, as well as Collagen that tightens the skin, and polysaccharides that protect it from external irritants. It was also noticeable that the flushing redness and irritation of the skin were reduced.
We continued using this cream for over fifteen days, and the results kept getting better. This product can replace many of those you use to moisturize your skin, since it acts as an integrated treatment. We noticed that it helped reduce the impact of external factors on the skin greatly as it became more resistant to them, after having started to become red when exposed to even a small amount of dust or sunlight.
However, keep in mind that this cream’s effect is quite strong, so it is preferable that you only use it if you have extremely sensitive, dehydrated skin. In case you have normal skin that doesn’t get affected by external factors, you can rely on a day cream that is lighter in terms of active ingredients. Also it is not recommended for combination or oily skin.
This cream retails at 111 USD per 50 ml in Lebanon, which makes it pricier than other dry skin creams such as Avene Skin Recovery Cream at 36 USD for the same capacity, and La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Rich at 37 USD.
