New Love: FaceShop's Oil Control Pre-makeup (Span)

01 September 2009

I found a product that controls oil, smooths and prep your skin pre-makeup, lightweight, effective and cheap! Yep, Cheap!

My New Love - FaceShop (Span) Oil Control Pre-makeup :)

I only apply this on my T-Zone where I normally get oily midday or end of the day. I've been using this for a week now and I am quite amazed with it. I give it 8 out 10 if I were to rate it.

Longevity wise, it lasts 7-8 hours which is perfect because I work 8 hours a day.

Effectiveness, I find it quite effective. Not the best product but definitely does its job. I wonder how this will hold up in summer or when it's humid so watch this space for more updates in the coming months.

Texture wise, it's a clear gel like consistency that is applied easily on skin and smooths the skin and makes foundation stay longer :) I personally prefer clear bases over white cream bases. It just puts me at ease that I don't look like a clown with white face :P

Price wise, I got this for $16.95AUD which is cheap in my opinion :) (FYI: I was told this is Php375.00 in Philippines which is around $10AUD)

Overall, I like and I think I will repurchase. I am very comfortable with Faceshop's skin care products. I feel that it caters for Asian skin although don't let my opinion stop you from trying this if you're not Asian because I am pretty sure this is marketed for women who love to pamper and take care of their skins.

Have you tried this product? How do you find it?
