Naturally, we are all cautious about using any makeup or even wearing the makeup we do love too much, for the fear of breakouts or at least a giant pimple. But it was to my surprise that these products which in my opinion are categorised in the makeup department, happen t be great skincare treatments. Well, to be fair the second product was dubbed by me as a makeup product. However, it can be used as a makeup product since it is a multi-purpose natural product.
As you know, I have problematic skin, highly sensitive, extremely oily and acne prone. It is through trial and error that I noticed these two products actually help bridge the way for me to be able to wear makeup on a daily basis. I first took note that when I used the Bioderma Sensibio Make-up Removing Water to remove my makeup, I seldom got a breakouts, which was a normal occurrence every time I wore makeup in the past. Not that I didn’t use makeup removers before, I’ve tried a lot of them and used great acne products like Clinique 3 Step line, still yet wearing makeup used to be such a risk for me. I was battling acne and being the inducer of my own breakouts was just a turn off for me, thus discouraging me from makeup. After making this great discovery, I took time to experiment my theory with different foundations, underneath different primers etc, just to come to a solid conclusion.
The second product took me entirely by surprise, firstly, this product is actually a skin care and an all natural product, I’m talking about Lush Tea Tree Water. I started using it as finishing spray to set my makeup, which, was unexpectedly a fantastic product to set your makeup with. Because of my oily skin, I sometimes use powder foundations, and this multi-purpose toner helps to set even my powder foundations to perfection. Little did I know this magic toner was also performing miracles behind the scenes. Before I confirmed my suspicions about the miracles of the product, I also tried it in a multitude of ways and with different products as well. Delightfully, there was no doubt this product aided in keeping my acne breakouts (that are due to makeup) at bay.
Conclusion: I think due to the fact that the Bioderma Sensibio contains ingredients like Rhamnose and Xylitol that are naturally occurring sugars, which are primarily used for anti-ageing. Rhamanose has natural anti-inflammatory properties that soothe your skin and delay ageing, ultimately anti-inflammatory agents are great for attacking or suppressing pimples. While in the case of the Lush Tea Tree Water it is a no-brainer since tea tree has great anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. Making the toner a great product to prevent acne forming during the time you have your makeup on, I even use it to freshen up my makeup during the day for more effective results.
