There's a Difference Between Greasy and Glowing

Being a sufferer of oily skin myself, Summer isn’t exactly my favourite time of year.
Summer is a time for beach days, barbeques and birthday parties, but you don’t want to attend any of these looking like you’ve been washing your face with “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter”. Along with this, oily skin is prone to breaking out in spots and we all know how stressful that can be when we need to look our best the next day!

Alas, ladies, I have found a few simple and affordable solutions. For those of you who struggle with the daily greasiness of oily skin then read on because no longer will your face be seeping oils ten minutes after you shower once you’ve purchased “Simple Oil Balancing Exfoliating Wash”. This product alone will change your facial texture from dewy shine to cleansed natural glow. “Simple” is definitely my go-to brand when I need to stock up on my face wash.

Now that we’ve sorted the scrub situation, it’s time to go from the girl at the party who’s “sticky as sweets” to the Cinderella who’s make up lasts well after midnight. Every girl deserves to look good whilst they dance the night away at house parties, birthdays or even weddings, therefore, it is a necessity to have a good 24 hour foundation. Once again, this means the girls with oily skin as well.

The answer to all of your problems is “FashionistA Secret Mattifying Matte Primer”. Okay, so £10 just for a primer may be a little steep for some but it is well worth it for more than one reason. Suitable for oily to combination skin types, this primer helps your foundation cling to your face and last longer than most as well as giving it that smooth, natural matte finish.

Now, to top off the dilemma of having unfortunately oily skin, I suggest you get your hands on “Revlon Colourstay Foundation”, I’ve tried a lot of foundations over the years to try and hide my dewy facial texture and out of all the products i’ve colllected throughout my teenage years, Revlon’s formula comes out on top every time.

If none of these work on your skin then browse for differnet products, always keep your eyes open for products that state they’re for “Oily to Combination skin types” as these are the products you’ll make the most progress with.

Good luck cuties,
