If you have read my blog for a while, you know that I struggle with overbuying especially skincare. I know a lot of bloggers buy, review & then give away products either for free or through blog sales. I'm a little iffy on giving away used products & the whole point of doing empties was to use up what I had. While that is helping somewhat with the skincare, my makeup is not reducing at all. In the interest of finishing more makeup products, I'm starting this new series- One New Thing. I will be digging up one old makeup product (bought at least a year ago & still unused) & use it continuously for a week to gauge how best to use it. And then incorporate it into my routine. Let's see how things go.
The first thing I dug out was Fair & Lovely BB Cream. I bought it when it was first launched, tried, didn't like & then threw it at the back of my closet. I found this too pale & extremely drying even on my oily skin. It does require more work but I've finally found a way in which this will work on my skin. I first apply a generous quantity of Patanjali Kesar Chandan Aloe Vera Gel & when it is still moist, apply a teeny bit of Fair & Lovely BB Cream & blend. Then I set it with powder & this gives me the most matte looking skin ever. Since I apply very less it doesn't give a white cast. I have oily skin & it's perpetually shiny especially in summer. I'm so glad I've found a way to use this dud of a product. Hope to include this in my empties soon.
