I think I may have mentioned it before, but my skin is very oily and I have trouble staying shine-free throughout the day - not even powder helps. I can touch my chin and I always get transferred foundation on my fingers. Eventhough I wear oil-free foundations and ones that are targeted towards oily skin types, I have just been so frustated of looking like a greasy mess. So I thought, maybe it's my base that I really need to evaluate because I don't use a primer - usually I cleanse, tone, moisturise and then apply my foundation. I popped into Boots and I knew I wanted some new skincare (of some sort) from the Botanics range as I had heard some awesome things about it. I noticed this day cream/moisturiser and the words 'Shine Away' immediately caught my eye.
I feel as though it gives my skin enough moisture to last throughout the day, but leaves me with a matte finish. I've been using it for the last couple of days and I cannot believe the difference. I feel as if I don't need to be constantly checking in the mirror the state of my face and reaching for my powder - I also don't get foundation on my fingers. For £4.99, you really can't go wrong and with an added SPF15 you are well protected against the Winter sun! My face doesn't feel oily and when I run my fingers along it, it feels smooth and matte. Perfect.
