Sign. Me. Up!
I can’t STAND shine. Summer is that time of year when grateful-for-a-glow turns to slick-skin misery! Sometimes it is only perspiration. But mostly I feel like I have a harder time staying generally mattified in the hot, summer sun and increasingly humid conditions…even when I’m not breaking a sweat, so to speak. Ugh. No thanks!
So…I LOVE the idea of a drop formulation designed to help tackle the slippery slope that is summer skin! Enter Cover FX with a new breed of Custom Drops (they have been rather successful with their liquid pigment Cover Drops, and other items of the ilk, such as skin-loving Infusions, over time so why not expand further?!)
Custom Blot Drops give you an instantly matte complexion by balancing skin (especially the troublesome kind!) with oil-control ingredients AND acne-attacking salicylic acid. Cucumber, papaya and chamomile tea up to hydrate and soothe skin, while the former few keep you clear and shine-free.
The product can be used on its own or paired with any of your liquid makeup or skin care. It is This product is “free of mineral oil, gluten, talc, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, DBP (dibutyl phthlate), and camphor,” just in case you’re wondering! 😉
I kind of feel like it is about time for this kind of item – mattifying moisturizers and shine solutions just haven’t made enough of an impact in the past (for me, at least.) The one thing that has is a good ol’ blotting sheet…but I’d love to eliminate those while I’m at it.
