I thought the problem laid with the type of primer or foundation I was using. The MUFE HD Primer would make my face greasy by lunch time, and even MAC Studio Fix Plus Foundation could not keep the shine on my face away.
If oil-control powder foundation does nothing for me, what hope would I find in liquid foundation?
The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream made me realize that sometimes it’s not about buying the best, most expensive, or highly raved makeup – it’s about what goes under before makeup.
The absence of any ‘mattifying’ or ‘oil-control’ claims in my previous moisturizer, Lancome Blanc Expert Ultimate Whitening Hydrating Emulsion Moist, kept my face oily throughout the day. It always felt like it just sat on my skin like a big fat blanket of lard . With all that oiliness you’d think it was doing a good job at moisturizing, but no, it did nothing. No moisturizing, no whitening, only greasiness.
The Body Shop SeaWeed Mattifying Day Cream I really bought in a desperate attempt to find a moisturizer that falls between drugstore and high-end. When I used it the first time, I remember falling in love with the scent and texture, and could feel my skin less oily during the day.
