These are some of the beauty products that I used and love the most; I'm in my forties right now, is hard to find a beauty product that good enough to accommodate my mature and sensitive skin. It was easier before, on my twenties-thirties, most of the beauty product feels just right and I didn't have to worried about coverage, too cakey or it will settle into a fine line. Before the forties, my skin was just perfect. But now, my skin has evolved and gets easily dried, I started to develop a fine line, wrinkle, and the sun damages are more visible. So I am continuously searching for the right products because it is just hard now to find beauty products that won't accentuate my fine lines or won't irritate my skin and has full coverage without feeling overwhelm. And as you know, such a product it's just hard to find, but it exists. So here are the proud finding products that I swear by!
1. Maybelline Fit me! Powder & Maybelline Dewy + Smooth Foundacution.
Now that I am over 40 I'm trying to avoid using a powder for my face because most of the powder out there makes my skin look older. It settles on my fine lines and accentuates the wrinkle on my face.
But this one is not like most of the powder; I am crazy in love
with this setting powder and foundation.
What an excellent product for keeping your makeup looking just applied all day.
Some of the setting powders that I tried makes my face look dull and dried, ruining the finish of my foundation but this one keeps my foundation in place and blends well making it look natural. It provides a real skin finish that looks fresh and polished perfection.
Maybelline come up with a real winner this time!
The foundation is very light, goes on smoothly and sets the makeup. It doesn't irritate or dry out my sensitive skin. It has not scented, and I find it works better with my fluffy brush. It gives me the 'dewy' and natural glowy look. Just use a tin layer after your foundation, it'll cover the imperfection on your face.
2. Physicians Formula Super CC+ Cream.
This CC cream provides light-medium coverage that looks natural and has creamy texture going on, smooth blend texture that can go on with light coverage and can be built up to a medium coverage foundation. It's effortless to apply and provides natural-looking coverage; enough to hide all the imperfection and pigmentation on my face. Fragrance-free; paraben free; 30 SPF and the high SPF is a bonus! The soft matte finish works well with my skin and does not settle into lines and pores throughout the day. My only complaints are limited shades, but overall, this is a fantastic CC cream.
3. Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil.
I got this as part of my Ipsy bag subscription, and I must say I am pleasantly surprised because knowing this oil is at a higher range price with such a small bottle. And I got this for low price it's just wonderful.
It can be used on face, body, and hair. It's genuinely the best multitasking oil. This one didn't cause a breakout, and it makes my skin radiant without looking greasy. The packaging is incredible, and I highly recommend this product!
It smells like an oil but is not overwhelming. It sinks into the skin easily. This oil improves skin texture and softness, BUT is not a miracle oil; it won't reduce scars or acne.
This oil works very well on tangle, dull hair that needs a little bit of smoothing. And also, works amazingly on dry lips.
A drop of this oil mixed into the foundation ensure it'll apply wonderfully and not cling onto dry patches.
4. Hydroxatone Anti - Aging BB Cream
My sister bought this from Costco and introduced it to me. At first, I didn't pay attention until I read the 40 SPF, that is only thing that got my attention. I wouldn't say much about this product because pretty much whatever the Physicians Formula CC Cream has it this cream have it too, and EVEN BETTER! Why did I say this cream is better than Physicians Formula CC+ Cream? Because this cream has SPF 40 while Physician Formula CC+ Cream only has 30 SPF. This cream is incredible. I had a fair amount of sun damage and committed to wearing sunblock every day.
This BB cream is very light and smooths/evens skin tone as well, doesn't clog my pores either. It evens skin tone, lessens blotches and blends in nicely. It hydrates and covers very well without looking cakey.
I think this cream is suitable for MATURE SKIN like mine, it does not settle on fine lines or wrinkles, and it provides a nice dewy fresh look. THIS PRODUCT WITHOUT ANY DOUBT IS MY FAVORITE! Although, like any other product, I suggest you try patches first before you use it entirely on your face.
