This also means I have a bit of a nightmare trying to find products that
a) Don’t make my eczema worse
b) Doesn’t highlight my dry skin
c) Cover angry red spots
d) Doesn’t clog up or look too heavy on my skin
This is no easy task I can tell you! I feel like I have tried every product going.
I now think my prayers have been answered! I went on holiday to New York in January, and whilst browsing in Macys I was chatting to the assistant at the Clinique counter who recommended Clinique’s Age Defence BB Cream.
I’ve now been using it for 2 months and I love it! I only like a natural coverage, so am conscious of colour and only use a small amount, but I needn’t have worried with this product. It’s a great match to my skin tone and a little seems to go a long way. It covers evenly and doesn’t feel heavy. It’s also moisturising so doesn’t highlight and dry patches.
Clinique Age Defence BB Cream Shade 02
To cover up my break outs I use MAC studio finish concealer, this stuff is like industrial wall paint, it’s awesome! It covers up the red and stays put all day. It applies really nicely and doesn’t look like you’re caked in the stuff. After I apply concealer, I then apply the Clinique BB Cream next to my whole face and these products seem to complement each other well.
To sum it up I now get people commenting on what great skin I have which is such a confidence boost! I would love to hear from others with skin problems on what products they would recommend.
