Have you guys checked out the two giveaways I've got going right now? You can check out my collab giveaway with another blogger here, and you can take part in my End It Movement awareness giveaway here.
Ugh. I've got such combination skin. My T-zone gets dry while my cheeks are oily. It's so annoying! Your face is always a delicate balance :) I've had my makeup end up just wrecked by the end of the day without some sort of intervention. I've used primers before and they work, but I've been testing a product that really stops it at the source - Bioelements Oil Control Mattifier!
I've been applying it before my makeup as a primer. It smoothes my skin and leaves it nice and mattified - giving the makeup a great base to hold onto. I tend to use an oil blotting pad in the afternoon. Or I did. Using this mattifier has completely negated my need to do so :) Tho, keep in mind my cheeks weren't terribly oily before - just enough to tell I've got some oily action going on.
Very simple - it's just like any other creme I've ever used. I found out that a light coat over my face works best (maybe because my oiliness wasn't horrible to begin with). I suggest, when you try this, to vary your application until you find the one that's right for you!
The Bioelements line is not currently available in brick-and-mortar stores, but is available in selects spas and online. You can purchase it here.
