I took these photos around Easter, so if you're wondering what's up with the candy eggs, that's the reason. I also thought the colors looked pretty with the bright green on the product's packaging!
The Skindinavia Oil Control Makeup Primer Spray acts as a silicone and moisture-free barrier between daily irritants and your foundation. It's been clinically shown to reduce pore size, diminish redness, and balance sebum production over four weeks of use. Users also noticed fewer breakouts. It helps your skin rebound from daily use of talcs and foundation.
I was excited to give this a try because it claims to fix all of the problems I have: acne, redness, and excessively oily skin! My skin started breaking out a month ago and I've had pimples on my forehead ever since. I'm not really sure why it's choosing to act up now (I never really had a problem with acne when I was a teen), but it's here and now I have to deal with it.
I've been using the primer spray every day for about two weeks. I love how easy it is to apply: just shake the bottle and spray across your face in T and X patterns. I needed three solid sprays to feel that it completely covered my face.
Unlike more traditional primers, since this one is a liquid spray it felt so light on my skin! I was worried that because of that it wouldn't keep my makeup in place, but I didn't need to stress about that. My makeup lasted a solid eight hours through my workday with this primer.
I can't say that I've noticed a reduction in my breakouts, but my skin is noticeably less red since I've started using this primer. I also haven't noticed much of a change with the oiliness, but I've all but given up on ever finding a product that will help with that. I also have only been using this for two weeks, so I am going to continue to use it to see if it has more of an effect on my sebum production after a longer period of use.
One last note on Skindinavia's cruelty-free status, from their representative:
SKINDINAVIA sells a small amount of product to a distributor in Hong Kong, which is province not subject to the same regulations as China. SKINDINAVIA can confirm 100% that Hong Kong does no such animal testing. We do not sell directly to China, nor have any plans to. However, many of our competitors products are actually MADE in China.
