New Skincare Routine

So I have some seriously nasty oily skin. I mean two hours after I put on my makeup, I need some oil blotters and some powder.

It sucks.

Recently I purchased a few new items to combat my oily skin.

Today I started with the Murad Acne Response Set. An associate at Sephora told me a few weeks ago that the Skin Perfecting Lotion is a good oil control moisturizer.

After I wash my face and moisturize, I use De Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray. I've been using this for about four months and haven't seen much improvement but I'm not giving up!

Next, I'm using Sephora's Tricks of the Trade Anti-Shine Primer. I just got a sample of this a few days ago. I have never used a primer because I rarely have time to coat my face with three or four layers of lotions but I'm so tired of being oily, I gave in.

Finally, I'm using Make Up Forever Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation. I have been using this foundation for about six months and really like it. It's smooth and does not break me out like some other foundations usually do.

I set my foundation with Make Up Forever HD Microfinish Powder which seems to do a really great job of locking my foundation in place.

Overall, I think I'm getting there. It's so expensive to purchase every product that someone recommends. I love the Sephora samples... they are great for trying new products!

If any of you have any advice for oily skin, let me know!!
