Review: Oily Skin Primers

Hi Guys! So this summer I have really been trying out some products to keep my oil at bay.  I feel like majority of people have dry, normal or combo skin and its so hard to find reviews on products that target towards oily skin.  Now I know that primers really help my make up to stay on a lot longer and not break own so much through out the day.  I've tested a ton this summer and here are my reviews!

REMEMBER WHEN SHOPPING: Use Ebates for cash back and coupons! Honey is a great back up when Ebates doesn't work on the site.

My absolute favorite is the One Heck Of A Blot #3.  This primer has done WONDERS for my skin.  It also has the most amount of product for $15.  It's seriously a steal.  It holds up the best and I love its consistently.  Feels like a gel moisturizer.  Im not a huge fan of silicon primers. 

The Angel Skin primer I heard was good for oily skin and although it is more moisturizing it defiantly leaves me very oily very fast and I wouldn’t recommend it for oily skin,  I feel like it give me more of a luminous feeling if anything!

The Becca stuff is heavy duty.  It for sure works but feels like glue on your pores. I just feel like its getting stuck in my pores but it will keep you matte for a very long time.

I don’t think the makeup forever is worth it for the price now that I have found One Heck Of a Blot and it is so much less expensive.  And this is more of a silicon formula.

Baby Skin is as silicon as it comes, its not recommended for oily skin and it more for large pores.  It gives a smooth surface but does nothing for oily skin!

The Neutrogena is good for areas of your face that don’t really get oily.  But it has some grit in it, I think its the rice protein. Also it

Nivea Post Shave Balm as a Primer

Hi Guys! So Im not sure if you have heard of Nivea Post Shave Balm Sensitive used as a primer for girls, but it's all the rage in the Youtube world. So I decided to give it a whirl.  The reason that this product is being used as a primer is because it uses glycerin and that is like an adhesive for make up to your skin.  I have read some of the reviews and most are positive but ALSO most people didn't have oily skin.  

Here is what I found from my experience:

  1. It smells like man - This is weird and nice all at the same time but it doesn't last
  2. It smoothed out my face - Much better than a lot of other products I have used, because I don't really like silicone feeling primers
  3. It feels like moisturizer
  4. It did not combat my oiliness

Overall, I really like it.  A lot more than I thought I would.  It didn't really help with my oiliness but it didn't hurt either.  A lot of mattifying products dry me out which creates more oil.  I like this product because it is light, feels like moisturizer and is easy to use.  It also only cost about $7 and there is a TON of product!

Tips on how to use it: Get a small amount (I feel like I easily use too much and it comes out of the bottle fast) and to massage it into your face.  Continue to massage it until it no longer feels like lotion and is tacky.  This helps to adhere the make up!
