summer is just around the corner and the weather starting to get warm here in Abu Dhabi. My poor skin is about to suffer.
During the cooler months my make-up stays put and I never need to touch-up during the day but as soon as those warm days make their appearance so does the oiliness. It is the bane of my existence y'll. I hate looking greasy but since it's my lot in life so all I can do is deal with it as best as I can.
I'm always searching for products that will help to curtail the amount of shine build up.
While doing what was only supposed to be window shopping in Sephora, I came across the Dr. Feelgood skin balm from Benefit. I tried it on my hand and it immediately made my skin feel smooth. I also put it on my face which was already made up and I noticed a really nice matte look.
This product can be used under or over your make-up. If you don't feel like wearing make-up, it can be worn alone. It promises to mattify shine and smooth away lines. Yes please and thank you. It comes with a little sponge for easy application.
Of course I had to take it home with me. Hopefully it will not disappoint. I'll have to see how it stands up to the heat once summer rolls around.
I'm such a mascara junkie. I love long glorious lashes and I am on a never ending quest to achieve them without having to add lashes.
So while I was at Sephora I also picked up the new Roller Lash mascara from Benefit, which is the new big hit on the market. It promises to curl your lashes and give you that wide-eyed appearance.
So far I'm not blown away by it. I have naturally curly lashes so I don't think it has done much for me. It doesn't offer much in the volume department but does lengthen. I feel like I need to use it with another mascara. The package says it pairs well with the They're Real mascara. I'll have to experiment and see how I can make it work for me.
There is so much good stuff out there on the market and I want everything but since I don't have extra money to burn, I have to be really selective about what I purchase.
Definitely leave a suggestion or recommendation if you've found something you love. It's always good to hear what others are using.
