I’m Lovin’ It: My Favorite Face Lotion


Mark Matte Chance Lotion

Pin It

For years I have struggled to find the right facial moisturizer.  You know, the kind that would do it’s job but not look greasy. Most of the time I just chose not to moisturize under my make up because it just wasn’t worth having my make up start sliding off by late morning.

Well, I have to tell you, my search is finally over!  I have found my dream lotion.  The people at Mark (division of Avon) have the answer!  The Mark Matte Chance Mattifying Lotion not only moisturizes like a dream….but it’s matte too! That means no shine and no greasy looking skin!! My skin feels smooth and soft, my makeup looks flawless, without making my skin dry or tight.

A shine-reducing face lotion for oily to normal skin types

Smooths the skin and absorbs oil

Pumpkin-seed extract and boron nitride (mattify), sunflower-seed extract (moisturize), polymethyl and acrylate copolymer and silica (absorb oil); sugarcane (smooths skin and helps increase cell turnover)

I love the little jar it come in too!

Just press down on the top and it dispenses the perfect amount of lotion.

    Thanks for the tip on the lotion. I have oily skin and always skip the moisturizing step because it always feels too heavy!

    Thanks for hosting, Cheryl.

    I currently use Arbonne, but am always looking for “the next best thing”. The Mark lotion sounds great – may have to give it a try!

    I normally just use oil of olay – – nothing fancy, but I love the way it smells and makes my face feel so fresh :)

    The face cream…thanks for that suggestion! Love hearing about what folks love!

    I’ll have to try that! I use an over-priced calendula creme from the medspa I go to. I LOVE it because it’s really soothing and not oily, but have been looking for something new.

    It can also be purchased thru your avon rep.

      yes, I state that and link to Avon and Mark in the post! thanks so much

    Good to know! My sister sells Avon/Mark and I haven’t tried this one yet. I’ll have to ask her about it. I am so sick of lotion making my face greasy.

    I love that lotion too! I was a devoted user until we moved to Florida & I needed sunscreen all the time. I wish they made a mattifying sunscreen lotion!

    I just noticed it’s your 100th Party! Congratulations!

    It’s funny, I was just getting ready to post on Facebook asking for a new face lotion. Perfect timing!

    Also, I’ve linked up my St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes, turned green using spinach instead of food dye. No oil, egg, or butter either! A healthy, fun treat that my preschooler loves.

    I just bought some overpriced stuff from a local plastic surgeon, hehe!! When that runs out I’m giving Mark a try! Too soon to tell if my new stuff works as I’m only on day 3!

    Thanks for hosting! Have a great weekend.

    This lotion sounds like an awesome product I’d like to try! I haven’t heard of Mark before – thanks!

    Thanks for hosting, Cheryl!

    That lotion sounds perfect for my oily skin! Any idea how long the little jar lasts?

  16. Kimberly @ The Brown Eyes Have It posted on March 9, 2012 at 9:10 am (#)

    I’m going to have to try that one, I hate a shiny face! Does it have SPF in it?

    I started getting Birchbox shipments (premium beauty product samples) about a year ago. One box included a serum that hydrates and minimizes pores. I don’t usually get excited about something like that, and I don’t like to spend money on it either, but this one was so nice that I couldn’t forget it after the sample was gone. Had to buy some, and I’ve been enjoying it ever since. DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer Moisturizing Serum

    I just love Mary Kay’s Timewise moisturizer. They have a formula for normal to dry skin and one for combination/oily. It’s an age fighting moisturizer with spf 30 and its not greasy either.

    I’ve been using Mark’s spray toner ever since I saw it featured as “one of the best” in a woman’s magazine severa years ago. I love that it is mostly natural ingredients and is low cost!

    prefer Bliss products, especially their moisturizer-have dry, sensitive skin-love Bliss and Sephora

  21. Brenda @ SweetSimpleStuff posted on March 10, 2012 at 9:19 am (#)

    I have not heard of Mark …. I’m going to give it a try.

    Thank you for hosting such a nice party! I linked my Leprechaun Hat Cupcakes.

    I use Clinique products during the day (moisturizer and make up) but my best kept little secret to night time moisturizing? Good ole’ Vaseline Petroleum Jelly! I have very oily skin, large pores and Rosacea and I have used a LOT of different products over the years. Vaseline is the only one I have found that helps with all three and gives my skin a beautiful glow. It takes time to learn just the right amount to put on so that you don’t feel slimy and grease up your pillows – I found that a little bit goes a long way and I don’t even notice it’s on my face. In just ONE NIGHT there was a noticable difference in my skin! The best part?? A jar costs around three bucks and lasts all year!! I use the newer one they have now with the bronze lid, LOVE IT!
