Oily Skin Saviours

Following on from my post about my favourite matte foundations I thought I'd also share some hero products that join the battle in keeping shine at bay.

The seventeen flawless poreless primer is great to use both under and over makeup. It has a light, balm like texture and I simply dab it on my T-Zone using my fingers when using it as a primer or press it on with a beauty blender/brush/powder puff when using over make-up. It's completely invisible and doesn't change the colour of your makeup which is a win for me as mattifying products can often leave a chalky residue or wipe off half your foundation!

I use this more as a mattifier and a primer to help my makeup application and to increase it's longevity as it's not the most effective product for hiding pores. However at under £6 it's a great addition to the fight against oily skin! 

This moisturiser is for 'oily skin prone to imperfections and shine.' which pretty much sums my pesky skin up to a T! It is also suitable for sensitive skin which I love as I can wear it safe in the knowledge it wont irritate or break me out. I find this to be an incredibly lightweight soft and hydrating moisturiser which immediately sinks into the skin leaving a mattified finish - I often wear it on no-makeup-days when I want a slightly more polished look and it's great if (like me) you often don't wear makeup when sunbathing to dab on over your SPF to ensure your face doesn't look like an oil slick.

 It makes a great base for foundation and helps combat shine but doesn't have that awful effect of making make-up flake or cake. It's a pretty good price point too as a little goes a long way. I only use this as a day makeup as I prefer something more heavy duty for night time.

P.S The Vichy Normaderm is discontinued! Shock horror! I am currently looking for a replacement fave so shout if you know any!
