Okay.. So I have always been a fan of benefit make up. The cute retro packaging and catalogues drew me in and I have been really lucky to find a lovely concealer called bo-ing. So since I use there concealer regularly, I tried out there big brown eyes make up kit which was also amazing. My only problem so far with benefit make up is the ‘you rebel’ light moisturiser. I was in Myer and talking to the benefit girls that swore by ‘you rebel’ so I decided to try it. They were like “Oh my god! It is soooo amazing!” They were scarily in a benefit ‘you rebel’ cult or something and if Australia had a proper sorority like in the movies, these girls would be in it.
My skin turned greasy I had to use a powdered foundation after applying and then by the middle of the day my skin turned so oily i had to continuously wipe of the excess build up! But worst of all, I started getting pimples. I’m 23 and probably could could the amount of pimples I’ve had in my life time in one hand. However, it has probably doubled due to the use of this moisturiser. Honestly I feel for girls that have pimples anyway, how on earth can this use this product?! Oh and the package is shit, with the metal tubing getting pierced so easily and moisturiser slowly leaking in my make up bag.
If anyone has a different opinion on this product, do let me know… also let me know your skin type and age etc..
Anyway, I have bought an el cheapo Nivea Daily Essentials Oily and Combination Skin moisturiser and some Nivea eye cream and I am going to give that a go. Will review it later on.
I honestly don’t know if moisturiser is any good for your skin or if it just is really excellence marketing, since I never used it before until February this year and I have always had lovely skin that may bit a bit oily around the t zone.
However, I am sure when I am old and start to wrinkle up I will be cursing myself for not moisturiser, hence giving it a go now. Does anyone else have a different opinion on this or agree?
Anyway let me know, I would love to hear from people. This is a brand new blog for me and would love to have people read this. Possibly.
P dot S… Princess Petal is my roller derby name and if anyone also has good suggestions for the blog’s name, please let me know.
