Exuviance Matte Perfection Review

SignitureI had the amazing opportunity to review Exuviance Matte Perfection primer. I am a big believer in primer! It makes a huge difference in how my makeup goes on and stays on. What I like about Exuviance Matte Perfection primer is it not only works as a primer but improves your skin at the same time.

Gently smooth over face. Can be worn alone, or over or under other cosmetics. Daily use of a sunscreen or sun avoidance is recommended with use of this AHA product and for one week after to minimize the risk of sun sensitivity/sunburn.

Exuviance Matte Perfection is clinically proven to improve overall skin texture, tone and pore size. After four weeks: 100% of users experienced softer skin97% of users enjoyed the lightweight texture

Take control of shiny, oily, skin and create an instant matte finish with Exuviance Matte Perfection. This super light, oil-free gel quickly absorbs excess oil and minimizes the appearance of pores, transforming oily skin into a smooth matte complexion. Mandelic Acid, a naturally occurring Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) found in almonds, helps provide long-lasting control over oiliness and shine while smoothing the skin. Gluconolactone, a Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) helps improve uneven pigmentation, enlarged pores and roughness, while adding anti-oxidant properties and anti-aging benefits to help decrease fine lines and wrinkles. Exuviance Matte Perfection glides easily over or under moisturizer, can be worn under makeup as a primer, or over makeup to impart a fresh, shine-free finish anytime of the day. Non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic. Dermatologist and allergy tested.


I love the way my skin looks when I wear this primer. It's been the best primer I have used hands down!

I received the primer for free to review. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.

For Robert, I’m All In is more than the name of his third studio album, due July 26 from thinkaboutit records. It has become Robert’s life motto as he responds to God’s calling to live fully committed to Him. In addition to writing and recording I’m All In and playing on a summer tour, Robert also leads regular Sunday morning worship at his 800-member Orlando, FL church. And he’s done it all as a high school senior.

“All of the songs have something to do with things I was going through my senior year,” Robert said of I’m All In, “preparing to say goodbye to friends and not really knowing what would come next, but finding comfort and peace in the Lord’s plan for my life. The Bible talks about how the eyes of the Lord are searching to and fro throughout the earth, searching for someone whose heart is wholly His, someone He can strongly support. This CD is me saying, ‘I’m all in.’”

Creating I’m All In was a powerfully personal experience for Robert, who teamed with veteran songwriter Jason Ingram (Tenth Avenue North, Sanctus Real, Bebo Norman) and legendary producer Matt Bronleewe (Jars of Clay, Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman) on the album. The result is a collection of songs that enthusiastically and energetically worship God while wrestling with what it means to be a Christian in a world full of difficulty and joy, anxiety and excitement.
I have the CD in my computer now as I'm writing up some blog posts. It's really enjoyable CD and I can see young adults really liking this CD as well. It's amazing how wonderful praise music can really lift your spirits. I really enjoy listening to the Robert Pierre, and I know you will too ;)
