Final Thoughts
I LOVED this when I had oily skin, but I haven’t used it in years because I figured my skin was too dry. It was part of the Nordstrom Sale so I grabbed it to try again and I’m glad I did. It’s just as good as I remember. It’s so smooth and finely milled. I apply it with a damp sponge and I think that helps it work on my drier skin. Laura Mercier’s cruelty free status is unclear. Their site says cruelty free, but they have no cruelty free certification. I enjoy and recommend this, but I still think the Fenty Butter is slightly better.
