How bloody irritating is it to deal with oily and greasy skin you ask? A LOT.
I look like a lamp and feel like someone threw a bucket of oil on my face by 1 pm, no matter what foundation I use. That's probably one of the worst things about summer. Can I secretly admit that I'm kind of glad it's over now?
Don't get me wrong, I remain oily but at least I don't have to walk around blotting my face every hour! Plus this summer it wasn't as bad because I found a secret weapon. Oh yes, something that did indeed help me control "them oils" whilst I was on safaris in Florida or chillin' on the beach.
I decided to share it with you all now because some girls are still dealing with this issue no matter what time of the year and I really believe this little gem might save your sweet backside when you need it. Obviously I can't guarantee it will work wonders like it did on me since we're all different but it's worth a shot! Anything for our skin ladies, Amright?
So let's begin...
Price : £3.99
What it does : This is a gentle foam that has an awesome cleansing action to wash away excess oils and impurities. It's very gentle on my sensitive skin so I didn't have any problem using it for even a few weeks. With the cleansing properties of natural witch hazel and a concentrated anti-bacterial ingredient, this product will leave your skin feeling really clean, fresh and smooth.
How I suggest you to use it : It works from first ladies and gents and the last thing you want to do is make your own face go from oily to dry and flaky. I would say to use this only in the morning and then apply a good mattifying moisturiser ( I use one from Kiko!). At night use a good nourishing cream and a cleanser that doesn't have this "oil sucking" formula.
How it worked on me/ my thoughts : I was really impressed. You almost think "is this really doing anything to my skin at all..?". I massage it in circles and concentrate on my t-zone. Don't over use this if you're combination skin, remember to keep a track on the way your face reacts to it and see how the oils go. It's vital to moisturise! I did notice my skin being much less greasy and my foundations not disappearing and going weird around my nose area anymore after only a month. I am SO PLEASED! It does exactly what it says: controls and balances oils, banishes shine and leaves me feeling ready to conquer the world no matter what time of the day! Also the oil absorbing sheets can go on more of a break and not be constantly pulled out of the bag whenever I'm around.
Final score: 9/10
I hope you found this helpful.
