Mini Product Review: Cosmedicine Multi-Tasking Moisturizer

Here's a mini review on the: Cosmedicine Primary Care Multi-Tasking Moisturizer SPF 20.. whoa that's a LONG name haha. Well I got this as a deluxe sample from sephora and I think there's enough I have to say to call this a MINI review :D

(Information taken from Sephora.com)

What is it:
A lightweight, rapidly-absorbing daytime moisturizer with antioxidants and UVA/UVB, SPF 20 sunscreens

What it is formulated to do:
-Reverses dryness
-Helps repair the appearance of lines and wrinkles
-Bolsters skin's defenses, enhancing its ability to protect itself from both internal and external assaults to help prevent future damage

What else you need to know:
It absorbs quickly and is so lightweight you'll never know how much its doing. It's great for even the most sensitive skin.


Swatch of the moisturizer with flash.

I was really excited to try this because I've been on the search for a new moisturizer because my aveeno is almost all gone and I'm trying to venture out into other brands than the ones I'm used to. This product really disapointed me. I left it in my car when I got it from sephora as an "emergency moisturizer" and one morning had to use it because I was super late for school but had random dry patches. I busted it open and the texture isn't thick at all and I actually liked it because it WAS fast absorbing and fixed all the dry spots for the entire day! Then when I breathed in... the smell was horrible!

None the less I still used it but I couldn't put my finger on what it smelled like until I had it halfway on. It smelled like Nair which was not a good thought. I still leave it in my car in hopes that I don't forget to put moisturizer on xD. I mean it's not a bad moisturizer but I will never be able to get over the smell of nair and the thought of rubbing a depilatory cream all over my face although it's not lol. I wouldn't know the wrinkle fighting and sun fighting aspects of this moisturizer because I have a deluxe sample and I didn't even use it for more than at least three days total :P

Taken with no flash.

Taken with no flash, rubbed in :)
Looks moisturized now.. LOL! I have try terrible hands :( Still looking for a solution.. ehh

- fast absorbing
- really moisturizes throughout the entire day
- has SPF 20
- lightweight

- smells like SUPER sh*t

Will I buy the full size version? NOPE!


  1. oh hush your chest is fine!
    lol yeah i was thinking the exact same thing! bringing up the e/s a little more.

    we'll see what happens!

    wet seal is great. i dont even know where there is one anymore.
    there used to be one close by years ago but its gone.

  2. hi hun i actually work for cosmedicine and that is not normal for it to smell so bad!! maybe it was an old tube? cosmedicine doesn't add fragrance to the products so it's not supposed to smell like flowers (which fragrant products are bad for your skin)... email me at whitneykrainock@gmail.com, send me your info so I can send you some goodies!!
