MAC Lightful Marine-Bright Formula SPF30PA++ Moisturizer Hydratant

Heliocare gel was proven as a a perfect fit for my sensitive-combination skin. Honestly. I have no complaints whatsoever. I so sincerely love it. Having squeezed out every bit, I could have mind you, got the same sun-blocking me gel, but being someone who always like to keep my sun story lively and interesting as well, tell me, why should I deprive myself from reaching out to another brand and product? After all, its my money and I didn't mind paying some extras. So, back to landing myself in Sunway Pyramid, for some reason or rather, or maybe I just didn't want to do the rounds, I walked into MAC store (MAC Formula Cleanser). But, it wasn't like I instantly picked up a sunblock. I made sure I heard it loud and clear on their range of sun defense products.

MAC Lightful Marine-Bright Formula SPF30PA++ Moisturizer Hydratant sounded great. A 4 in 1 hydratant (RM160.00 for 50ml) that supposedly works in quadruple ways as a moisturizer, UV protector, foundation primer and skin brightener. Why not? Will save a whole lot of my time. I don't have to use three or four products at one go? One in all or all that is needed as one on my face? I, actually, to tell you the truth, love this convenient way of caring for my skin. 

MAC Lightful Marine-Bright Formula SPF30PA++ Moisturizer Hydratant
This lightweight, soothing emulsion conditions skin while providing long-lasting UVA/UVB protection without affecting the wear of makeup. A potent addition of vitamin C gives skin its brightening effects to help look clearer and brighter immediately or over time. Skin tone is improved with continued use, MAC Lightful Marine-Bright Formula SPF30PA++ Moisturizer Hydratant is suited for all skin types.
Packaged in a plastic white hardy opaque bottle, with a lock-on dispenser for preventing spillage and for potentially, if you say so, keeping this thick cream save longer. To use, press the pump. Just press the pump. Logically, you should pump it on your palm, unless you prefer the tip of any of your fingers, thereafter, dot and gently spread on your face for full coverage. After pumping, like, maybe 10 times, for day use and within the following week, something didn't seem right with the pump. Hack. Pump seemingly didn't work as expected. Still the same pumping troubling story till this day, sometimes its pump perfection, one and two pumps for dispensing the amount I need, other times, pump is rubbish nonsense. You keep pumping and pumping, and either so little is dispensed or none is out. God! My patience testing till every limit, I guess we don't have a choice but keep pumping or ditch it aside. Which means we are also in return ditching the money we have paid for MAC Lightful Marine-Bright Formula SPF30PA++ Moisturizer Hydratant? Any other choice but keep pumping for getting our money's worth invested? You tell me.    
Having said that, I quite like its pleasant soapy scent, non-irritating, non greasy formula and smooth texture gliding easily and smoothly, without having to forcefully rubbing for penetrating on my skin. Absorbing quickly, its white cast initially bothersome, but disappearing within minutes and once you apply powder to set it in, you will notice your soft and velvety skin. Great sun defense, didn't break me up throughout the whole time MAC Lightful Marine-Bright Formula SPF30PA++ Moisturizer Hydratant sat on my face, prior applying a moisturiser is still needed, I still need, in all fairness, I must say that I didn't regret buying MAC Lightful Marine-Bright Formula SPF30PA++ Moisturizer Hydratant. Yet, I gotta to remind you that imported brands are marketed at a higher price for covering the exchange rate against our RM.
