don’t get me wrong. i’m happy that we had a hot and sunny holiday weekend to say farewell to summer, but blistering heat can pose problems for a weekend that demands outdoor activities (even if those activities are strictly drinking and lawn games). i spent saturday sitting in a gorgeous winery celebrating the birthdays of one of my favorite people and sunday was set aside for a rowdy family barbecue. after getting shiny and slightly sunburnt in a matter of minutes at the winery on saturday, i had to revisit my makeup strategy for sunday.
sephora’s 8 hour mattifying moisturizer sunscreen was the perfect solution. i love this product. it kind of acts as a primer/spf/moisturizer all tied into one. it gives my skin plenty of hydration, soothing the sensitive and sun-kissed areas, and i noticed a difference the second that i applied my tinted moisturizer over top. it glided on and settled into a more flawless finish than usual, giving me what may be my best skin ever. the mattifying effects are real and i was seriously impressed with how this stuff held my oft oily shine at bay for the entire afternoon/evening yesterday. my skin was comfortable, protected, and matte though a very humid situation.
oily skinned gals will definitely rejoice in this little miracle worker. at $22 it’s a big-time multitasker that delivers major results.
