Best skincare products for oily and acne-prone skin! 💖
Best skincare products for oily and acne-prone skin! 💖
I have combination and acne-prone skin, where my T-zone is dry in winter and oily in summer. I'll have acne and bumps flare up when I stay up late and during my period. Aesop Lightweight Facial Hydrating SerumAesop - Lightweight Facial Hydrating Serum: My impression of serums is that they're always sticky and greasy, but this Aesop serum is unexpectedly refreshing, easily absorbed, makes my skin smooth and won't clog pores or cause acne breakouts.😉 Aesop Mandarin Facial Hydrating CreamAesop - Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream: It's light orange with a nice scent and refreshing texture.😍 It's also very moisturizing and is suitable for oily skin. Aesop Control GelAesop - Control Anti Blemish Gel: Just apply it on your acne or blemishes. It feels cool when applied. I used it for more than a week and couldn't see any obvious results, but my acne has actually lightened.😊 Conclusion: I really like this brand but this set is more suitable for oily skin with less severe breakouts.

laura mercier - Blush Colour Infusion Laura Mercier has an amazing blush formula called Laura Mercier Blush Colour Infusion, which is described as a sheer, buildable and silky-smooth cheek color that blends seamlessly with the skin for the most natural, fresh look. The shades range from soft neutrals to vivid pops of color, with finishes ranging from matte to a subtle sheen with hidden pearl, to suit a variety of skin tones and skin types: Matte Shades: Rosé (matte rose pink), Chai (matte dirty rose), Ginger (matte pale nude), Strawberry(matte bright pink),  Kir Royale (matte berry wine) Sheen Shades: Sangria (sheer plum berry), Pomegranate (sheer fuschia pink), Fresco (sheer brown nude), Peach (sheer light coral), Grapefruit (sheer red coral) These three palettes I got are all pure matte but its delicate, soft and light powder really gives a youthful glow. It blends well, doesn't look powdery on the face and delivers color well. 💓Ginger is a pale nude with a matte finish, which can create cute everyday looks. 💓Chai is a cold-toned, dirty rose with a matte finish. I haven't found any other blushes with similar shades to this one. 💓Rosé is also a bit darker with a matte finish, but has more pink compared to Chai, and gives a more radiant look. All three shades are gorgeous and I highly recommend them!

Hey gals! Which lighlighter do you like the most?  If you don't have any product in mind, or if you have never used Dior's highlighter, check this out!!💞💞 I first bought thisDIOR - Glow Vibes Diorskin Nude Luminizer Powder Highlighter shade 002 and liked it so much that I've almost used it up. I bought two additional shades later on, shades 007 and 008. I have to say that I also like both of them, so I decided to write a review about them. 002 Dior Pink Glow is a champagne white with a purple undertone and is more for daily use. It gives you a beautiful and natural look when you apply it to your under-eye area and it doesn't clump. 007 Dior Peach Delight is a peachy coral with gold shimmer. It's not as shimmery on the face as it is in arm swatches. It looks best when applied to the bridge of the nose. 008 Dior Pink Delight is a light pink highlighter which looks great when applied on top of pink blushes. The 002 powder is of a nicer texture and clings to the skin better. It does not have large shimmers, and so is more suitable for large area application, creating a more natural look. 007 and 008 have larger shimmers in them, which is very suitable for parties. They create a beautiful look when applied on small areas of the face. If you only want to buy one, I would recommend 002 because it's the most practical shade.❣

I just tried 2 masks from Kielh's and here is my review of the 2 babes. Kiehl's - Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask I used it as a cleaning mask.  I really LOVE the scent of the natural ingredients. Great for folks who don’t have sensitive skin and are looking for radiance as the cranberry seed exfoliant was just a little too much for sensitive skin and will cause quite a bit of redness. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Mask  It is very hydrating and I love that I could wear it to bed. This mask kept my skin hydrated through the night and didn't seem to clog my pores.  It really helps hydrate and soothe my skin, and unexpectedly helps to dry out my small breakouts before they completely form. Smell not the best but it does wonders! As for Kielh's Ultra products, some folks may have a burning or stinging feeling at first. Maybe the skin needs some time to get used to the products. If that happens many times, you should stop using it and turn to your dermatologist.

My skin type is combination-oily laura mercier - Foundation Primer Oil Free This one is my favorite. It is both colorless and oil-free, perfect for people with oily skin. Shake it well before use to mix the product well. smashbox - Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light This product is transparent and mattifies the face when applied. It blends very well but feels a bit heavy on my face and it doesn't smell nice. However, my makeup did last a long time after applying this beforehand. HOURGLASS - Veil Mineral Primer It feels like a silicone-based product, leaving a filmy skin texture when used. However, it really brightens up my complexion. Don't try if you mind that one of the ingredients is silicone.
