Garnier Pure Active Matte Control Moisturiser

So confession, this product was suppossed to be my Beauty Buy of the Month in April, but me being me I’m a tad late as usual! It is something for all my fellow oily skin girls! It’s the Garnier Pure Active Matte Control Moisturiser and I’m really excited about this!


I’ve mentioned so many times on the blog that I have really really oily skin and I really struggle when it comes to finding something that will help. I wash my face twice a day and try to use oil free formulas and makeup as much as I can. No matter what powder I put over the top of my makeup throughout the day the oil creeps through, so I apply more powder and end up looking a complete oily mess and to be honest I was really at my wits end with it.

When this happens, it can be so frustrating because it’s hard to find the perfect balance, to get rid of the dry and flaky without adding to the problem of the oil! I was researching intensive moisture treatments to help me and came across the Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask!
