I have very oily skin, especially in the summer time when it gets hot and sticky. This means more often than not, my make up will slide off my face and leave me with a shiny mess of a t-zone. I have tried everything to combat my oily skin, from mattifying products to trying to give my skin more moisture in the hope my skin won't keep over producing oil. Sometimes things work but i still often find by the end of the day my make up has slid off. Cue L'oreal's Infallible fixing mist....
I decided to give this a try when i came across it in Boots, it was between this and the Make up Revolution spray and seeing as though i had not yet bought any Make up Revolution products, i went with the brand i knew from previous experience. It's also oil free so a bonus for those who are wanting to help kerb the oil production throughout the day.
The directions are easy; apply make up and then shake bottle well and spray onto face. Simple right?
I tend to apply this after my foundation and eyebrow routine, to set it in place before moving on to mascara, blush and powder. Doing it this way i find the powder doesn't go cakey and my mascara doesn't get too wet but it just fixes my foundation into place. It dries relatively quickly but i'm always rushing to get ready in the mornings so i tend to waft my face with something for a couple of minutes afterwards to dry it that little bit quicker.
It doesn't dry sticky so you can apply powder or cream products to the skin afterwards. It always doesn't crack or go flaky when you move your face which is always a bonus. Using this as part of my daily routine i've found my make up lasts a lot longer and i'm really pleased with how my skin looks by the end of the day. Much less oil coming through on my face during the course of the day! I've also found that it doesn't set into my pores and it's super easy to remove with some simple make up remover at the end of the day! You can also apply this during the day to keep your make up set all day for that extra little bit of hold in case you're planning on wearing your make up well into the evening! Perfect.
Overall, i'm very impressed with this fixing spray. It's currently £7.99 in Boots & Superdrug and a lot of the time they have offers on so you can usually pick it up as part of a 3 for 2 or something along those lines!
