As I have a nice combination of immensely oily and flakey dry zones at the moment - my skin likes to keep me on my toes - I generally concentrate the majority of my routine in the PM - cleansing exfoliating, using my Konjac Sponge* - a total lifesaver! -, applying liberal amounts of moisturiser and tiny drops of oil from various pipettes.
Meaning that, in the AM, I can wake up with minimal time to get an outfit together, dress correctly, eat whatever carb-filled breakfast I have in and dash out the door with as much of an effort on my face as I can muster at 8am. I need products that work, are quickly absorbed and help keep my dry zones hydrated and don't exacerbate my oily zones. Nightmare.
Bee Good's Hydrate, Smooth & Prime Serum* does exactly what it says on the tin. Two pumps and I can practically feel my skin being quenched. It's glorious. By the time I've reached for my Nivea Post Shave Balm - yes, you did read that correctly - it's practically melted into my skin.
Onto this bizarre second product, it's a causing a bit of a stir in the Youtube beauty community with it's uncanny ability to prime the skin with it's serum-like texture. After watching Kathleen Light's review video, I knew I'd end up purchasing it simply for the fact that Kathleen had recommended it. I can't pinpoint exactly how it does it or exactly what it is, it just works and my base makeup stays in place throughout the day.
