As summer is coming soon I am starting to get my summer wardrobe back out adding some more pieces as I go along in preparation for the season. There are so many different styles this summer from 50s inspired midi skirts, to high waisted distressed shorts, to boho, to 70s inspired looks, etc. and here is some images of where I get my inspiration from.
While cleaning my make up storage I came across a product I was was so excited to use but very disappointed about when I finally did get it.
The product I'm talking about is Benefits You Rebel Lite, I heard such good things about this around last summer and since I had been going through a tinted moisturizer stage I decided to try it out at a counter. I wasn't sure about this product so I did test it out a couple of times before I brought it and had no problems with it, so I decided to buy it. As soon as I got home thats where it started to all go wrong.
I opened the product and the smell was the first thing that hit me and not even in a nice way. As soon as i put it on my face all I could smell was dead flowers (I know weird) which really was putting me off. Then the colour was next, I went with the lite colour due to my very light skin, but as soon as I looked at the product it was this light yellow colour strangely but I kept an open mind and blended it in. The finish is not what I expected too, as I have oily skin I avoid oily products at any cost and this product left a matte finish but if the skin was touched it was a sticky wet feeling which finally pushed me over. I've tested this product out a number of times but get the same finish each time even when powdered underneith. As a result this product is pushed to the back of my make up storage just to be ignored and wasted.
I am not saying this is a bad product and not to buy it but just it didn't work for me at all and I could have spend my time with another product which work well for me and my oily skin.
