Yes I am still using my faithful safflower oil!

happily after


My skin currently is still pretty stable. I haven't been obsessed too much with my skin, meaning I don't have whole lot of bad acne going on that depressed me. Just want to make a note that I am searching for good sunscreen.  Now I am testing out Heliocare XF gel cream spf 50. It's the most transparent sunscreen I have ever used. There is no white cast at all that would make my eyebrows look white. And this one doesn't sting my eyes. Even though it's very sticky after application but it's light feeling, not oily and filmy. I definitely need a good powder after foundation or otherwise my eyeliner will transfer due to hooded lids. I was using Mac blotting powder but I found out it's not helping me at all. At beginning I thought it's the sunscreen being too sticky. Then I used bare minerals mineral veil, it completely changed my life. It really helped keeping my face matte. My eyeliner lasted whole day and did not budge. Then I looked for pressed powder to touch up on the go, I found Rimmel stay matte powder. It performed really well on my oily skin with sticky sunscreen as well.
