Alpyn Beauty has been on my radar since they dropped at Sephora. Their Creamy Bubbling Cleanser actually caught my attention first, followed by their PlantGenius Eye Filling Balm. Although I haven’t tried any of those, I did get my hands on a sample of their PlantGenuis Melt Moisturizer with one of my most recent Sephora online purchases.
This moisturizer has some amazing ingredients like bakuchiol, squalane and vitamin C. The texture feels slightly whipped, and it has a soft velvet matte finish when dried down. It also seems to absorb very quickly into the skin, so I tend to use more of this moisturizer vs my other moisturizers because of that. As far as fragrance goes, it does have a natural floral scent to it that lingers for a bit after application. Unfortunately, it’s not for me and my combo to dry winter skin. Even when worn under makeup, it makes my skin feel even drier ! What gives ? I don’t know. It just seems like the moisturizing properties of the Melt Moisturizer disappear quickly throughout the day on my skin. And I won’t be buying the full size.
I could give this a go in the summer when my skin tends to lean more combo to oily, but I doubt I’ll reach for it then. This could be a great option for someone with oilier skin all year round, or someone who wants that velvet matte finish. Have you tried it yet ? Would you try ?
I still want to try some other products from Alpyn Beauty even though this one was a bust. I’ll probably pick up their eye balm, they cleaner or even their new polishing peel, but who knows ! What should I try from them next ?
