Yeah, I do have rather oily/combination skin so it suits me, but I have dry cheeks so I keep it to a minimum on my cheeks and really just use the foundation on my t zone to even out my skin tone a bit.
My skin has been really getting me down lately so I've bought all new skin products and have gone all natural without any parabens/sls etc in the hope that it will help. I nearly spent £££ online but then luckily found a new range in Boots that was much less and smells of lovely essential oils, the mineral foundation is the next step
CB, do you do any skin massage? You can buy essential oils (rose oil is very good for the skin, it's worth going to a Neals yard or similar for some advice) and you add a few drops to a base oil and then massage a clean face for a few mins with your finger tips. I swear it makes skin glow like a glowy thing. Works wonders!
Yes I've used oil on my skin for a while, used to do a massage/deep cleanse once a week or so but then I started to try to do the oil cleansing method and use oil everyday and that's where it all started to go wrong. I persevered for 4 months but have now given up because it made my skin so bad-really flakey, lots of big under the skin spots and blackheads all over my forehead and chin. I thought I'd be ok with it seeing as I used oil anyway but will go back to just using it every now and then.
I've finally got round to using my testers and am very impressed! It's funny stuff isn't it? I mean it looks like loose powder and you can't feel it on your face so you kind of think meh, that's a waste of time but actually when you look in the mirror it's given a really good coverage. Have used sponge so far but got a (cheap) brush today to try.
