    what about Johnson's baby oil for baby's i put it on sometimes for over night not before makeup but it's jus makes my skin feel plumped when it drys in

  8. sponges are AMAZING for flaky skin but I break out so much using a beauty blender :((

  9. Hi, i use coconut oil as face moisturizer… so i was thinking, can i use a matte foundation to balance of the shine? Or it doesnt work that way? I have dry skin

  10. How Do you feel about clinique foundation the 2 in 1

  11. This acne guide “fito shocking plan” (Google it) truly aids a lot. I`m thankful I downloaded this one – a fast read with simple to apply acne cures. I`ll try some of the suggestions I read from this guide for my son. This might sound easy, but I think that I will be delighted by the results of the small changes.

  12. I've been trying everything from expert makeup tips to get my foundation to stop looking cakey and clinging to dry patches, even if it doesnt look dry before I put makeup on, it does quickly. Your tip on hyralonic acid helps, I used the neutrogena hydroboost gel cream for extra dry skin last night and today before applying makeup and it doesnt look cakey or making my dry more dried out! I'm so excited!

  13. Your snapchat account doesn't pop up 🙁

  14. the thing I hate about having dry skin is that when I moisturize I get acne

  15. Tena Tso says:

    Where does SPF fit in? Thx!

  20. hi ive only just watched u for the first time n I really enjoyed your video ..most people tend to have greasy skin im finding so this was great for me …ive got some matt foundations do u think if I added a few drops of vitamin e into them they'd go on my skin better so they don't get wasted..or if I added a strobe cream to them to give a bit of a shine u think that would work ? …im just gonna subscribe n hope u see my message lol xx lots of love xx

  21. neutragena hydroboost is my crack right now.
