Every woman with oily skin will nod in agreement that it’s almost impossible to achieve dewy skin. We get oily in the wrong places so our skin looks like an oil slick good enough to fry an egg rather than looking youthful and healthy which is the aim of creating dewy skin.
However, after getting the Murad Hybrids® Skin Perfecting Primer Dewy Finish in my January GlossyBox, I finally got the whole dewy skin look down to a tee. I use Urban Decay’s Pore Perfecting Primer Potion under NARS’ Sheer Glow foundation which isn’t matte nor dewy but just gives the skin a gorgeous glow so I’ll usually go for something in between dewy and matte. But I thought I may as well give the primer a try and what resulted was dewy skin that didn’t resemble my usual oily skin whatsoever. Result!
The primer is free from oil which is great news for you oily skinned ladies and it does help to minimise the appearance of pores (though not as much as my beloved Urban Decay primer) however, I didn’t like its staying power. My foundation stays for around 5 hours whereas with the Murad primer, it didn’t really stay any longer like I expected from a primer.
So, dewy skin is within easy reach for oily skin and acne prone skin. Let’s rejoice in happiness now!
