1 oz. $39 at Sephora
I am always on the hunt for something to keep my oily skin in check. I picked up this primer after hearing good things about it early last month. I was interested in trying it because it’s supposed to help keep the oilyness at bay. This primer also has some salicylic acid in it which I like because I do get random acne here and there especially when its hot.
The directions on the back advise to apply this product to affected areas one to three times daily. I was confused by this. I decided to apply this primer to my t-zone area after I cleansed and moisturized my skin in the morning. My t-zone area is the most prone to get oily after a few hours. I have dry cheeks so I kept the primer off my cheeks but it was everywhere else.
I really was happy with how easily this gel absorbs into the skin. It has a light scent to it that wasn’t too bad or overpowering. It smells like medicine, but it quickly fades away. I noticed that this gel really helped keep my skin matte throughout the day. I noticed that I didn’t get oily in my t-zone after 3 hours like I usually do! I am not a big face powder girl so using this primer and foundation my face stayed normal looking all day. I love this stuff! It’s way to expensive though. I really wish it was cheaper, but thank goodness a little goes a long way. I use a less than dime size amount for my whole face minus my cheek area.
This is going to be a staple in my makeup primer collection, I will be using this during the heat of spring and summer definitely!
