Oily skin: The worst problem in summer or humid days. It makes me look greasy like a frying pan in less than an hour after leaving home.When ever I look at my face in a mirror I am like: Yo! Shiny Face…(Who needs illuminators Or dewy makeup?)
Yes I do use oil blotting sheets, oil absorbing face powders & mattifying lotions. But my skin is like…Do what ever you want; I will not change
I thought to change my skin care routine this summer. Here is the review of the products I am using:
Amway’s ARTISTRY essentials Skin Care System – Balancing
** Sorry about the pic ( You can have an idea from the pics below)
This collection consists of a Balancing Cleanser, a Balancing Toner, and a Balancing Lotion. For my Combination-Oily skin I also purchased .
Cleanser: It is a gel cleanser. A dime size of it is enough to clean the face.
Toner: Alcohol is an active ingredient, so I doubt how it will react on a sensitive or acne prone skin!
Lotion: Creamy with a bit of greasy feel to it. It leaves a whitish cast on face after applying. It takes about 1-2 minutes to absorb in the skin.
Pore Cleansing Mask: Feels like clay Mask. This is the most effective of all four. Makes my skin soft, clean and oil free for few hours. (Works best for my Combination-oily skin).
All of these three has a mild fragrance to them.
Cleanser and Balancing lotion are kind of OK on my skin. But the Toner is a bit too strong. It made my skin dry and patchy.
