Even though we are approaching the winter months *shivers with fear* it is still important to keep SPF in mind! For oily skinned girls like myself, this stuff is amazing!
It's not tested on animals, and formulated without sulphates, parabens or phlatlates. It also has some great skin benefits in addition to control shine, as listed on the Sephora website:
- Willow Bark Extract: Helps manage breakouts and clears skin of impurities
- Argan Extract: Reveals smoother, softer skin
- Octinoxate 7.5%, Zinc Oxide 3%, Ensulizole 1%: Sunscreen
The consistency is similar to a thick sunscreen, because it essentially is sunscreen, just with more benefits. I prefer to mix it in with my regular moisturizer, so I get the SPF benefits, use less product and then it is also not so thick on my skin. It can be tricky to apply due to it's consistency but you can warm it up in your fingers if you just want to apply it alone .
As for mattifying I definitely notice a difference in my skin's oil production when I don't use it. I wouldn't say it keeps me completely matte all day (nothing does, I am super oily) but it is a great addition to my mattifying skin arsenal!
