An Oily Girls Best Friend

I really debated whether I wanted to dedicate an entire post to this product or not. It’s only recently that I have found skin care that truly works for me and it is so exciting. My skin has always been an area for me to improve because in my youth, I really didn’t take care of it as well as I should have. That continued on into my teenage years where I was starting to get oilier and acne-prone. After much neglect, I began using different products, trying to create a skin care routine for myself and it’s only very recently at 23 that I have found products that work. And of course, this one is discontinued.

 I went into a bit of detail in my latest favourites about this little $1.25 bottle of Oxy Natural Action Oil Absorbing lotion. My very thoughtful fiance saw it while shopping at a local Dollar store by our house and recalled how often I complain about my oily skin. I was ecstatic when I saw the product and it’s claims, though a little skeptical. After using it the first time, I was totally sold.

I put it on before bed one night when I was without the Vichy Normaderm Night Detox lotion, and woke up with no excess oil on my skin. That has never happened after hitting puberity. I was floored. Then, throughout the day, I saw that my skin was looking really good, mattified, the make up I was wearing was staying put. Another miracle. I do have products that do something similar but absolutely not to this extent. I was very impressed.


 Since then, I have been using this product pretty much daily. It is a creamy moisturizer with a thin consistancy. It doesn’t work very well when mixed with make up so you do have to let it totally soak in before applying anything or use it at night. Once it dries, it does feel a little stiff which is so weird but not bad. The smell reminds me of clay which doesn’t bother me. I also absolutely have to apply this product with a brush because it completely dries out my hands/cuticles. Other than those avoidable cons, it’s perfect.

I have tried looking up where to buy more and quickly discovered that it isn’t being made anymore (or at least, it doesn’t appear to be). Because of that, I ran out to the Dollar store and bought them out. I also hope and pray that I can find something comparable to this before I run out!

Til next time, ttfn x
