Oily skin Rescue : Lancome PURE EMPREINTE MASQUE

I must say Im obsessed with finding good skin care products and maybe I tried too many that I can't tell difference or just I don't see it at all. but this mask has been in and out of skin care routine for 2 years  at some point .
This mask comes out as white cream it blend in the skin really easy however it dries really fast , it transforms in to hard rock clay mask . I really love that feel of the hard clay cause some how makes me believe that it is working. it should be left on the face from 5 to 10 minutes  . this mask purifying for deep cleansing and it really does what it says but I used it in many different ways First as a spot treatment ; when I have huge red spot I apply a tinny bit on it at night and in the morning the redness with disappear 
Moreover, I love to use it as face wash when i feel my skin is extra sensitive because it is purifying and b the clay factor in it makes my skin matt and has fresh feel .
But still the best way to use it as mask , if you have oily skin this is magical .In days when my skin is extra oily or has too many break outs I put it and I can see the difference as soon as I wash my face .Not only it washes away all the oils the affect of it stay on it keeps me clean and matt for at least another 12 hours for oily skinned people this might be magic .
But sometimes I cheat a little to get the most of the product. what I do is I apply it all over my face and neck and i sleep in it the morning my face feels like i just had a facial  no oil no red and it definitely   minimizes pores .

Stila illuminating tinted moisturizer SPF

After my good skin care challenge. Now I’m acne free, less oily and 70 % less scaring on my face. Naturally I'm enjoying my healthy skin . So, I'm trying not use foundation and embrace my natural skin but I also  love a little coverage so I’m trying out few tinted moisturizers or light foundations
The stila illuminating tint moisturizer is very sheer ( it is sheerer even than most tinted moisturizers) but it is full of light elective particles it makes the skin  glows (at least on my skin) .It is almost like apply golden highlighter all over but it look lovely . 

Pros : very natural on the skin ,
very glowy it will brighten up the face
your skin never dull when you are wearing it
it has SPF of 15
it stays on really well

Cons: it is too hot, it might come across as oily
It defiantly needs powder to set especially in the tee zone
( bare in mind I have oily skin ) .
it is very sheer , it hardly evens out the skin

I will keep using  this product only when I have really good skin day , when I don't feel like wearing 
too much make up .
