Hey Ladies xx
So as I mentioned before my skin has changed for the better lately hence the need (not want) for new products. I've always suffered with spots and combination skin with very dry areas and equally as oily areas, however now my skin is much smoother and easier to apply makeup on to. My spots went away with the help of medication and duac once daily cream courtesy of my housemate who swears by it. Yet I still suffered with uneven skin, large pores and could never get my makeup to sit right or last. I don’t know it’s just me but I found that my makeup would cake around my nose and chin , and yet it would be sliding of my checks revealing my redness on my cheeks in all its Irish glory.
That is until I found these 3 miracle products shown above, they helped keep my skin moist where needed but not leave it greasy, close off my pores and give me a smooth base to apply my makeup. The No7 Airbrush Away Primer was my first purchase its €25 in boots I have to say, I fell in love with it immediately. Don't let the boring packaging put you off this little miracle bottle does exactly what it says on the tin. You need the tiniest amount to cover your face or just certain areas and it really does give you that perfect airbrushed base. I have used many primers and found they left my face greasy which led to my makeup sliding off just as easy as I had put it on. Yet with this primer my makeup doesn’t move it blends effortlessly with no lines or pores to sink into, and on a side note a little goes a long long way.
The second one I bought was the mac mineralize charged water moisture gel which has completely changed how my skin feels. I have used some of the most highly praised moisturisers with no luck such as Clinique dramatically different. Yet this little pot of gold makes my skin feel smooth and soft without leaving it greasy and shiny giving it a smooth silk like feel. It itself almost feels like a primer when it’s dried in if you didn’t have time to apply both. It’s a little pricey at €38 in Brown Thomas but in my opinion it’s worth it for the difference it has made to my skin and how I feel about my skin without makeup which is much more important.
Lastly in this very long review, my most recent skin care purchase was the Clinique "take the day off cleansing milk". I wanted a cleanser that wouldn't be too heavy on my newly softened skin but still be strong enough to remove my crazy amounts of eyeliner and contouring creams. Let me tell you ladies I got what I asked for this bad boy priced at only €24.50 for a 200ml bottle leaves no trace ...let me say it again no trace of makeup , eyeliner , mascara or red lipstick on your face. Say goodbye to your chemically and drying face wipes and welcome this purple god into your skin regime.
