So....I think I've found my staple product facial moisturizer! If you don't know, I have oily skin; very oily skin smh. I've tried several different kinds of drugstore facial moisturizers and even natural oils/products that don't really work well for me. I don't wear make up everyday nor do I even feel like applying makeup everyday so it's important for me to take care of my skin and protect my skin even when I'm out in public.
I have applied some "oil-free" products on my face and have walked out the door and in a matter of 1-2 hours have had to dab my face with my hands (I know thats a NO-NO, lol), or with a tissue. I went to Sephora while on a mini vacay to Houston, TX last week and purchased the new NARS foundation, I'll blog about that a little later by the way. I received a few samples of products in my bag after I checked out. One of the samples was CLINIQUE DRAMATICALLY DIFFERENT MOISTURIZING GEL for combination to oily skin, I decided to try the gel on my last day in Texas; that morning after I washed my face I applied the gel to my face and put my glasses on and packed up and heading back to NC.
I wanted to see if this oil-free gel was actually going to work for me! Girlaaaa! it did!!! I actually was in disbelief and shocked at how well the product worked, I touched my face after a couple hours expecting to wipe off oil spots on my face and there were NONE! I literally said to myself, "As soon as I get back, I'm purchasing the full size version of this!" Sure enough, I headed to Ulta (by the way, I have my own personal thoughts about Ulta as of recently, I'll keep them to myself for now), and purchased the 1.7 oz tube of the oil-free gel and I have been using it for the past 3 days now and I freaking LOVE IT!!!
If you have oily skin like me, I would highly recommend that you try this out for yourself and see if you have the same results if not better!
