This Mattifying Skin Serum from Aromatherapy Associates has totally transformed my summer makeup wearing. Ok, we haven't had much sun to speak of here in Northern Ireland but I have found the weather to be very close a lot of the time. I'm not a big fan of the heat to be honest. It makes me hot and sticky and my make up has been known to slide off. Until now!!
The Aromatherapy Associates Mattifying Skin Serum is made for oiled or acned skin. This is definitely not my skin type as I am dry, so I have been using this in my own way to achieve the results I want. I tend to become very shiny/sweaty on my upper lip and chin during hot and humid weather. I hate the way my skin feels at these times and I hate how my makeup feels like it is sliding off. Not any more!! I apply this after my moisturiser and before my foundation to my upper lip and chin only. I don't want this to dry out my whole face. I have been using this for 2 months now and I am in love with it. So much so that if I forget to put it on in my morning rush (a frequent occurrence) I actually regret it. This stuff keeps my makeup in place for the whole day. It's a great base.
I use it my own way, not in the way it is intended to be used. If you have the correct skin type for this you will be amazed by it. If, like me, you have a small problem area you might also find it to be a revolution for the summer months.
It costs £32 and is available from Aromatherapy Associates Boutique and Treatment Rooms, 5 Montpelier Street, London, SW7 1EX, Tel 020 7838 1117. (Doesn't that place sound divine?)
It is also available from leading hotel and destination spas, worldwide and from Space NK, Liberty and Fortnum and Mason.
This was sent to me for review purposes and I will definitely be repurchasing. I am so happy that this is available from Space NK as I have one not too far away.
This is definitely a new summer essential for me.
