I don’t usually review skincare, not that I don’t try many products but my skin is terribly dry and often, even though they are good, most products just won’t work on my skin. I don’t have much flexibility when it comes to skincare, today I can say that I own 2 skincare products that really work for me, one is the Laura Mercier Repair creme and the other one is this Jelly from Fujifilm.
We all are familiar with Fujifilm and with their place in the electronic industry, 15 years ago they had the brilliant idea to expand their research to the beauty field. I highly recommend you to read the research and development paper related to the technology used in this Astalift Jelly, it will give you a deeper knowledge of how it works.
I have recently purchased the Suqqu Creamy Base, the Foundation and the Nuancing Powder in order to test them together, hoping that these products will be appropriate for my very, very, dry skin.
I need more days in order to say if they will be comfortable enough for me to wear all day, but I thought that it will be good to post something at the start of the tests with my very first impressions, and then I will update this post after approx 10 days to see if my skin really liked it or not. So far, I am not sure it will.
The finish is too matte for my taste, I haven’t found the right balance between not looking overly glowy and setting the foundation with powder. I never used powder before because it tends to dry my skin completely, giving me dry patches on my chin, cheeks and flakes all over the nose area.
The products I am using today are, in the right order, the Astalift Jelly Aquarysta, Laura Mercier Repair creme, Suqqu Makeup Base Creamy, Suqqu Foundation 30, Suqqu Nuancing Pressed Powder Natural.
I was at the YSL counter to check out their new “Vernis à Lèvres” and I noticed this new Forever Youth serum.
They insisted that I should try it, that it was “so” special and “so” innovative and they gave me a tiny sample. I have always been looking for great products for my skin but since my skin is so incredibly dry it has been very difficult to find the perfect combination.
