Shine Control: NeoStrata Pore Minimizing Anti-Shine Hydrating Gel

9 Aug

Hi beauties!

It’s been extremely hot and humid in Vancouver, and that means shiny skin.

I don’t like to overdo it with powder, so I’ve been using an anti-shine gel to control oily areas like the T-zone.

NeoStrata Pore Minimizing Anti-Shine Hydrating Gel is an oil-free gel that reduces shine and mattifies for up to 8 hours.

In addition to instant shine control, this gel visibly reduces pore size and refines skin texture over time. The formula is designed for combination and oily skin, but is also suitable for sensitive skin.

To get the best results, you can apply the gel after cleansing once or twice a day:

  • If your skin is oily, apply the gel all over your face.
  • If you have combination skin, apply the gel on the T-zone.

Even though we’re into the dog days of summer, I know this anti‑shine gel will be part of my daily skincare routine well into the fall. πŸ’•

Skindinavia No More Shine Makeup Finish is a makeup setting spray designed specifically for oily skin. The weightless spray contains an oil control system that absorbs excess oil and disperses light particles for a smooth finish that lasts up to 16 hours.
