Goodbye Oily Skin!

Being a sufferer of oily skin myself, you could say that I’ve gone through my fair share of grease banishing products, you know the ones, they claim to give you that matte finish when all they really do is clog up your pores and curse you with breakouts right before an important date, meeting etc. Well, I’m fairly sure that I’ve found a few products that are true to their words and do exactly what they say on the tin… tube, bottle.

June Favourites

I decided that ten just wasn’t enough different categories for this blog so I figured I’d add just one more, this is my first post for favourites.

I’ve found a lot of things this month that I really like and I’d love for you all to try them (listen, watch, etc.) So here are my June favourites.

Let’s start with my favourite food this month, my friends and my boyfriend in particular have grown quite tired of my raw fish ramblings about cravings for sushi so this is without a doubt at the top of my loving list when it comes to snacking, I just love sushi so much, the Shapers Sushi platters from Boots are the best ones I have tried so far.

Next on my list is favourite drink. The one reason I hate summer is that it doesn’t rain as much and because of this, it feels kind of wrong to drink hot drinks however, it has rained quite a lot where I live this month which means I managed to get round to ordering my favourite hot drink from Costa, steamed milk with a shot of vanilla. Now, I know it sounds plain and I don’t think it’s on their menu but it’s affordable and it is absolutely heavenly, I advise you all to try it at least once.

Seeing as this started out as a beauty blog, I feel that this favourites list wouldn’t be a favourites blog without a spot for my favourite beauty buy of the month which is Katy Perry Cool Kitty lashes hands down. These lashes have no competition in my eyes, I just think they’re fab.

The next favourite is a draw. I’ve been seeing little bits of Michael Posner every now and then since I first found out about him a few years back but he’s risen in my mind again and I just haven’t been able to stop listening to Cooler Than Me (I know it’s old) and The Way It Used To Be. They’re so catchy and the beat manages to worm its way into my head daily so if you haven’t listened to either of them, I feel like you should.

My YouTuber of the month has been MissJessicaHarlow and her Iggy Azalea tutorial. The transformation from MissJessica naturally to her finished look is astounding! I will totally follow this tutorial when I get the chance. Also, the products she uses are great quality.

Unfortunately, because this category was a last minute thought, I haven’t managed to collect a lot of favourites for June but I promise to get more for July. Chow!

There’s a Difference Between Greasy and Glowing

Being a sufferer of oily skin myself, Summer isn’t exactly my favourite time of year.
Summer is a time for beach days, barbeques and birthday parties, but you don’t want to attend any of these looking like you’ve been washing your face with “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter”. Along with this, oily skin is prone to breaking out in spots and we all know how stressful that can be when we need to look our best the next day!

Alas, ladies, I have found a few simple and affordable solutions. For those of you who struggle with the daily greasiness of oily skin then read on because no longer will your face be seeping oils ten minutes after you shower once you’ve purchased “Simple Oil Balancing Exfoliating Wash”. This product alone will change your facial texture from dewy shine to cleansed natural glow. “Simple” is definitely my go-to brand when I need to stock up on my face wash.

Now that we’ve sorted the scrub situation, it’s time to go from the girl at the party who’s “sticky as sweets” to the Cinderella who’s make up lasts well after midnight. Every girl deserves to look good whilst they dance the night away at house parties, birthdays or even weddings, therefore, it is a necessity to have a good 24 hour foundation. Once again, this means the girls with oily skin as well.

The answer to all of your problems is “FashionistA Secret Mattifying Matte Primer”. Okay, so £10 just for a primer may be a little steep for some but it is well worth it for more than one reason. Suitable for oily to combination skin types, this primer helps your foundation cling to your face and last longer than most as well as giving it that smooth, natural matte finish.

Now, to top off the dilemma of having unfortunately oily skin, I suggest you get your hands on “Revlon Colourstay Foundation”, I’ve tried a lot of foundations over the years to try and hide my dewy facial texture and out of all the products i’ve colllected throughout my teenage years, Revlon’s formula comes out on top every time.

If none of these work on your skin then browse for differnet products, always keep your eyes open for products that state they’re for “Oily to Combination skin types” as these are the products you’ll make the most progress with.

Good luck cuties,

Courtney.
