Posted by 07.01.14

Despite a growing awareness and availability of face and body oils, brands are facing pressure to produce oil-free versions of best-sellers because women are nervous about slathering anything kitchen-friendly on their face.

Here are some oil-free moisturizers and smoothers to get your summer off to a perfect start:

Peter Thomas Roth Oilless Oil ($38):

In response to a growing need for oils—without the greasy texture—Peter Thomas Roth developed the first “oil-less oil,” a purified squalene product that looks and feels like the real thing but also helps control breakouts. Product Development Director Tamar Kamen says the brand receives many phone calls from customers who want to

CLEAN OUT YOUR MAKEUP BAG!

Posted by 11.08.11

You wouldn’t think of eating food past the expiration date, yet many women apply the same makeup for years. It’s unsanitary and bad for your delicate skin. “Cosmetics are made with organic materials so it’s important to clean out your makeup bag and cabinet regularly,” says Cindy Joseph, a former makeup artist and CEO of the cosmetics company BOOM! By Cindy Joseph. “Once the preservatives are past their potency, bacteria can grow creating possible infection – and natural makeup turns rancid even quicker. As a rule of thumb, if it smells funny or looks strange, toss it. Cleanliness plays a big part in your health which contributes to your beauty. Here’s a rundown on the shelf

OC Eight Professional Mattifying Gel

PRODUCT: OC EIGHT PROFESSIONAL MATTIFYING GEL

My Dermatologist gave me Clinac O.C. Gel made by Ferndale Labs a little while ago and it worked perfectly to keep my breakouts under control. My skin was clear and even in oily prone areas (the usual T-zone) I could get through the day without a hitch. But I tried to renew my prescription when I used it up and to my horror - it had been discontinued!!  I was devastated - after finally finding a product like this that really worked brilliantly, it was taken away. So after an exhaustive search, I tried a few other brands that I was told would do the same thing - but the results were variable or they were too drying for me. I found OC Eight Professional Mattifying Gel online and the reviews were amazing. It claims to work continuously for up to 8 hours to absorb oil, hence the significance of its name I suppose. It contains micro-particles that can permanently trap up to 6X their own volume in oil.  My skin is only mildly oily, more so in the summer and humidity, but this gel isn't drying and acts like a primer under foundation. I fact, my makeup stays in place much longer with O.C. Eight.  It is nothing short of PERFECTION!! The price is about $40 and you can probably get it for little less if you shop around. One tube will last forever because you don't need to use much or reapply during the day. It's a must - believe me.

FINAL VERDICT: RDW

BY WAY OF: PURCHASED
