So this afternoon i went shopping with a friend and got this powder - the last one, yay! - because of all the raving reviews here. I was going to buy the mac blot powder, but this one was a little cheaper :) (In my country it costs around 15 euro). When i got home, i looked at myself in the mirror and suprise, suprise: My skin was oily! Which was convinient in this case, because i was dying to try this out. The compact looks pretty fancy I must say, it's very sturdy.. Very good to take with you for touch ups. Although I dont think you need to do so as much, because i have applied the powder (on its own) about 5 hours ago and still no oil! Very natural, matte look. It makes my skin look so much better! So i am veeeery happy with this so far, I just hope this doesn't break me out or anything. I will try to remember to update this review in a few weeks! So far id recommend it to my friends.
I'm dutch so apoligies if my english isnt very good ! :) ----- I have been dealing with bad skin from the age of 13, and i'm almost 21 now. I always have small bumps on my chin and forehead, and I always seem to have at least one or two visible pimples (redness, scabs) on my face. I have tried so much products, natural or chemical, and tea tree oil seems to help a bit but doesnt solve my issue. I dont remember how, but I came on makeupalley and the aspirin mask because of the many raving reviews, so I decided to give it a shot! It costs about 3,60 euro's here for 20 aspirin tablets, at least thats the only ones I could find. I crushed 5 tablets, added some honey and mixed it together. I have just applied it to my face, and I cant wait to see what it does for my skin. I have about 4/5 spots on my face right now and my spots infect very quickly when I touch or mess with them which is another one of my skin issues unfortunatly. :( I need to leave it on for 10 more minutes, cant wait to see what it does for my skin! (PS I dont feel any pain or uncomfort, maybe it'll kick in later? Hope it doesnt haha) ----- Ok so I just washed off the mask, my face is a little red but the spots look exactly the same. No discomfort whatsoever though, when the mask was on. Just put my nightcream on to moisture a bit, I'm curious if tomorrow morning ill see some more result. If not, Im not giving up and trying again in four days or so to give my skin some rest. Ill update if anything changes (or if it doesnt)! Fingers crossed :) ----- I woke up this morning and i was pleasantly suprised!! My spots arent bumps anymore but they have completely shrunk down and the redness is all gone! They have to heal a bit still but they are 80% less noticeable then yesterday. I do think its best to apply at night before you go to bed considering the overall redness on your face after you wash it off. I'm so happy, will defeniitly use this mask again and give this 'recipe' to my friends ^-^ Thanks MUA
