Quick Fx No Shine Mattifier Review: Holy Grail for Oily Skin

I have oily skin and I've been battling with oily skin almost my whole life! Here's the good news to women with oily skin at 45+. Oily skins tends to age much better than dry skins. But the downside is, oily skins are prone to breakouts and make up slides off easily especially in warm weathers.

That's what riles me with having oily skin, even at my age at 50+, I would have acne breakout, usually along the triangle part of my face. In my experience, I think pimple breakout affected me more as I reached 40 than when I was in my teens or in my 20s. So I make sure to stick to my skincare routine daily especially in the evenings which consist of cleaning, toning and moisturizing.

I came across with the product Quick Fx No Shine Mattifier, a few years back but I was not interested to use it prolly because I'm using another product  as primer for my skin. These past few months, I've been reading and seeing a lot about it in the internet so when I was shopping at Watsons for my facial needs and saw this item in one of the racks, I just took one piece and dump it in my basket with the rest of my finds! I didn't even bother to look at the exact price, what I know is, it is cheap based from what I read.

So here goes my review for this popular product.

Product Name:   Quick Fx No Shine                                      Mattifier
Net wt:                   10g
Price:                      Php 99.00

Benefits: Absorbs oil to control shine for a smooth, matte finish, conceals fine lines and pores for visibly radiant skin instantly.

How to use:

To use under make up: Apply to freshly -cleaned skin. Pat on problem areas and use your finger tips to blend the cream on skin.

To use over make up: Pat on lightly over makeup and blend for smoother complexion and more radiant looking skin.

To reapply: If pores or lines appear, apply delicately on problem areas over makeup and blend. The light weight formula refines complexion.

Before use: The packaging looks very neat, it is travel friendly because of its compact size plus it has a resealable cap to make it spill proof.

During use: What I did was, I use the product under my make up and used it as a primer. I squeeze a pea size at the top of my hand and it looks firm not watery. As I applied it on my face, it feels powdery and as I pat it gently all over my face my skin feels satin smooth and has a matte look.

During my lunch break, I retouch my make up a bit by applying just a small amount of the product by dotting it along my nose, forehead and cheeks. But I noticed my skin was not oily as it used to be before using this product. My skin is really very oily and in between I would reapply baby powder over my face because the latter has a lighter feel on my face compared if I will touch up with facial powder.

Final Verdict: I arrived home and it is 6 hours after my last touch up with Quick FX. There's a bit of shine along my nose, forehead and cheeks (these are the oiliest part of my face) but I love Quick Fx, it really lived to its promise that it will control shine for a smooth, matte finish and your skin will visibly radiate instantly.

Recommendations In a scale of 1 to 5 stars, with 5 being the highest, I highly recommend it and rate it  5 stars. At the price of Php 99.00, this product is really very cheap compared to other primers with heavy price tags but with the same benefits as Quick Fx No Shine Mattifier.

Quick Fx No Shine Mattifier is a product made in Korea so it is no wonder it delivers what it promises because Korea is presently worldwide known as the land of oppas and unnies with perfectly smooth and glowing skin!

Product Review: Maxi Peel Zero

Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty. - Coco Chanel There are so many ads shown in media about skin care products for pimple & acne removal and at the same time for smoothening and lightening of facial skin. Usually these are skin care products that exfoliates the skin to remove the skin impurities brought by exposure to nature, pollution and even the cosmetics you apply on your face. Exfoliating the skin would mean darkening of the skin first, then peeling, last is the reddening of the skin.

I have tried facial exfoliant before but after a few days of using it  I have to stop using it completely because, it was so painful. My face felt raw, even the touch of the wind or water on my face was so painful. I have to cover my face with my hanky because even a whiff of wind hurts my face. My face became reddish, it looks I've been extremely sun burned.

I received sample products from SampleRoom and one of the items  I ord…

Singapore:Day 2 Kampong Glam, Sentosa, Universal Studios Singapore

I was supposed to start the 2nd part of my Singapore trip last night but because of a lot of work at the office (making up for the days I was away from work), I was so tired when I arrived home. I'm missing Singapore already so I'd better start my blog right now!

Anyway, day 2 started earlier today. While Charmi was still sleeping, I sneaked out of bed and took a bath. The bathrooms at Meadows Hostel where we stayed were very clean but you have to bring along your own toiletries because they are not provided. No need to bring towels, they will provide it, and before I forget when we checked in, the receptionist gave us 2 free adapters. By the way, I booked our hostel via No credit card  or prepayment was required, I paid in cash at the hostel.
Before taking a bath, I took my breakfast and I have the pantry by myself. The pantry has an overview of the sky rise buildings in Singapore and I was enjoying the sprinkling of rain. It was a beautiful morning, no hurries,…

How can Midlife Women Live Longer?

How long do you want to live? 80, 90, 100? But the real question is," how can we live longer?". To live longer entails keeping our bodies in good health, in good shape, nurturing our spiritual growth, and caring for our family. According to data, a woman turning 65 today can expect to live on average until 86.6 years of age. I stumbled upon on internet a life expectancy calculator, this calculator computes the additional life expectancy of a person. This is how it works: I input my date of birth then it calculated that I will have an additional life expectancy of 33.6 years! Wow!

The truth is there are several factors that contribute to the increase or decrease in life expectancy. These are:

1.  Current health- are you in good health? suffering from an ailment?
2.  Lifestyle - are you a smoker? drinks excessively? does not exercise? parties too much?
3.  Family history - is there a member of your family who has cancer, diabetes, hypertension?

Smoking, drinking too much alcoho…
