Jack Black Double Duty Face Moisturiser SPF20 97ml
An average moisturiser - for normal skin only
I have combination skin (oily t-zone and dry cheeks/beardline) but have often struggled to find a moisturiser that could tackle both problems simultaneously. I decided to pay far more than I normally would on a moisturiser to see if this would deliver better results than my usual low-price choices. Unfortunately, I have not noticed a dramatic improvement in my skin from using this product as opposed to the cheaper brands.
This is a very light moisturiser so would probably not be suited for very dry skin (those with flakiness, psoriasis, eczema, rosacea etc). It also fails to offer any excess oil absorption (a separate product would be needed on top). For the price I was expecting some mattifying ingredients to be included but this does not seem to be the case. As such I would only recommend it to men with normal skin (no noticeable dryness or oiliness) looking for a light SPF cover.
In the products’ favour it is non-irritating (no burning sensation on application) and applies easily. The smell is very pleasant and all natural (as no perfumes are used). The high SPF is an added bonus.
-Nice packaging and handy pump dispenser
-No perfume yet smells fresh
-Lasts a fair time
-Not deep penetrating
-No noticeable improvement to skin tone/appearance as claimed

Great absorption and SPF 20
Bought 2 of these as Christmas presents and at first there were a few remarks such as' what are you trying to tell me' and ' do you think I' m looking old' but once they tried it and found how well it was absorbed, they loved it. To top it off its SPF 20.

I have been using this moisturizer for nearly a year now. It's nice to know it contains natural ingredients, but also does a good job at projecting the skin from environmental damage. The cream sinks in really well, smells great (very calming), and doesn't make my combo skin look oily. The product is also very much non-comedogenic, so it doesn't break me out at all. Perfect moisturizer, which I plan to continue using. It is also twice the size of the average cream, and doesn't need a lot on applications, so it lasts ages too! (Only just started by second bottle).
