I went to Sephora last week to find a new face wash to combat my shiny summer face. I was blown away by how knowledgeable the sales people are there. The guy I talked to knew everything there was to know about oily, sweaty, and sensitive skin. He recommended Boscia's Oil-Free Daily Hydration SPF 15 and Boscia's Clear Complexion Cleanser. I love both. I am particularly impressed with the moisturizer. It dries completely matte. I think I'm going to have to go back to get the night moisturizer too.
He also figured out that part of my shiny problem was that I had run out of the Bare Minerals veil and was using the powder without it. Apparently the powder is very shiny without the veil. I think he said it was because of the mica. But I could be wrong. I am annoyed about this because the last time I went to Bare Minerals to buy more powder the sales woman said the veil wasn't necessary and don't bother spending the $$. What? Anyway, I bought some more veil and was pleasantly surprised to find out it now comes in a travel compact. Hooray!
So the next time you see me make sure to notice how cool and matte I look in the hot summer heat!
