As a person who has long battled oily, acne-prone skin, oil control has been one of my biggest concerns in skin care. Whether its oil-free face primers, blotting sheets, setting powders, matte (powder and liquid) foundation, or even oil-controlling setting sprays, I have literally tried it all. But as you may imagine, the more I try to control oil, the more my body creates and overcompensates for it once the oil is finally gone with super dry flaky skin. So it’s a balancing act, to moisturize so that my skin healthy and glow-y, but also control the oil without over-drying.
This is where Linda at Star Brows came in with a great suggestion for me (as well as all those who suffer from oily skin) from Tu’el, called Absorb. This amazing facial serum, when applied before moisturizer and sunscreen, finally answers the call! Thanks to the amazing science of Sodium Hyaluronate, which is able to hold 1000 times its weight in water, the skin is kept moisturized without having to produce more oil! It also contains cinnamon extract, which helps clear any breakouts, and green tea extract, which reduces the appearance of redness.
Since I began using Absorb about two weeks ago, I have not once had to use a blotting sheet on my face, or even touch up with powder. Before, my makeup almost always seemed to slide right off my face by the end of the day, but thanks to Absorb I haven’t even had to think about it! This amazing serum works better than any facial primer I’ve ever used, beating out big department store brands, and that’s just one of its perks!
I use Absorb morning and night before my moisturizer (as I usually go to bed with a night cream but wake up super oily) and just let it soak in for a minute. It always leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and of course, oil free! So if you’re looking for a spa-like experience every day, with fewer touch-ups and no more oily shine, Absorb from Tu’el is a no-brainier!
