No More Shine!

Hello...How is it going for you all ladies?

Well I am relieved to tell you that I am DONE witn my last 10-page paper...Yayuh!  I only have one more final next week and I am DONE, DONE, DONE!

I will be graduating next Friday Dec 17, I am now beginning to get all happy =D  I will post pics of my Cap n Gown (I hate the colors =/ ) and the announce ments I chose sometime tomorrow.

On to the good stuff:  I recently purchased this moisturizer for oily skin from Avon.  I am not an Avon girl, but like to buy things here and there.  I have tempermental skin, so it tends to be super oily all the time, even with primer (i guess i grow immune to primers....or maybe i have not found my HG primer).  I have tried a lot, and i mean a lot of stuff for acne/oil, and this sounded interesting, plus it was not too expensive ($16), and had great reviews (4.5 out of 5 stars from 137 reviews)

mark Matte Chance Mattifying Lotion

AVON.COM describes it as :

If you want it all—skin that’s moisturized but totally shine-free then try this light, oil-free moisturizer that says bye-bye to shine with a super blend of oil absorbers to help create an up-close-and-perfect finish. Plus, a dose of sugar cane—a natural alpha-hydroxy—keeps skin fresh and glowing.

1.7 fl. oz.   oil-free • non-comedogenic • fragrance-free

My Verdict:

It really works! I works way better than anything i have tried.  I use it in the a.m. as a moisturizer before primer and it does suck up all the oil.  My face has been pretty matte all day.  whenever I blot, I dont see much oil (keep in mind i blot like 5 hourd after i initially put makeup on).  It does make my skin so soft...i even feel like i need a "heavy" moisturizer at nightime, but i dont.  I have used this with mineral foundation, liquid and BB creams and no problem at all.

I am impressed and i will repurchase as i ran out.  I love the dispensing pump.  you press down and the lotion squirts up.  It is mess-free and clean since you can just wipe the pump with alcohol (think the LANEIGe Sno Crystal foundation pump).  One full pump is almost too much, so i so small dots at a time and a little goes a long way.

I am just too happy that my face is not oily as it was before.  So, are you ladies Avon junkies? Any favorite primers for oily skin?

I am just hoping i dont grow "immune" to it bc i love it sooo much!


  1. congrats on finishing schoooool!!!!
    and great review. i dont understand my skin sometimes.. sometimes is super dry or super oily. right now its super oily and i'll look into this product!

  2. Congrats on getting ready to graduate! Such a happy moment :) I'm more of a dry skinned girl but I do really love some Avon products. PS I love your blogger pic, it's hot!

  3. Yay! Congrats on finally finishing school!I always wanted to try that Mark product but I have dry skin idk if it will help keep my dry skin moisturized. Sometimes the lightest creams can still make my feel dry :/. I am an Avon junkie though :X I am obsessed with lipsticks from there. I love Avon! I feel Mark is overpriced and their items are small. I rather go to MAC instead of buying anything from Mark :o.
