I have an oily t-zone and have to blot/powder throughout the day to keep the oil in control, since it breaks apart my foundation and I end up looking extremely shiny. Therefore, I’m constantly looking for mattifying primers, foundations, etc.
This bottle contains 118mL of product, which is more than the average setting spray. I like the packaging but am not fond of the nozzle that sprays out the product; it doesn’t always produce a fine mist and can result in droplets sitting on my face. This issue seems to occur when it hasn’t been used in a while so I like to spray the product out a few times until the mist is fine.
The product itself is a bit unusual since I have never seen/tried a silicon-based facial spray. I wasn’t sure if this would give me a matte look since silicon products don’t control oil in my experience. I have tried applying this before and after my makeup application since it states on the bottle that this can be used prior, during, and after makeup application; I definitely prefer using this before. Since it is a silicon-based product it feels hydrating and allows my makeup to glide on. The trick with this product is to let it dry; it can feel quite greasy/shiny when it is still wet but once it dries it has a matte finish. I don’t like this over my makeup because it toke a very long time to dry and I feel that it made my foundation move in some parts due to the silicon and the unpredictable nozzle.
I think this is a decent primer spray for oily skin types because it does mattify my face once it dries down but didn’t find it to completely control my oil throughout the day. Which setting spray do you recommend for oily skin types?
