For someone with perennially oily skin, I’ve come to accept and live with it up until now. I just blot my face and do touch ups more than the average gifted girls. I’ve tried several brands but none of them can keep up with my overly active oil glands especially around the nose area.
So when our friends from Maybelline invited me to take the #UltimatteFaceOff Challenge where I will try their latest Maybelline White Super Fresh powder foundation against 3 other powder foundations, I said why not? I thought I’ve seen it all and no product can ever change my mind that all powder foundations are the same, that I still need to touch up once in a while to be able to have a matte face.
So what makes Maybelline White Super Fresh stand out?
Maybelline White Super Fresh has a Clean-Touch Powder Technology and enhanced with Mineral Perlite which makes its sweat and oil absorption power five times better than regular talc. You don’t need to touch up for 12 hours and will still give you fresh, fair, matte, and superfesh skin.
12 hours??? Of course, I was skeptic, so I took it out for a test yesterday. It’s a light powder foundation, you still need a concealer if you want to hide blemishes. I like it’s almost non-existent smell, actually, I’m not sure if the smell is just coming from the sponge. Wore it to the office and since I was so busy, I forgot to check come lunch time when I went outside for lunch. I was able to check my face on the mirror after 8 hours, just before I hit the gym. As expected, it’s still got oily but only around my nose. Usually, my T-zone gets oily after a few hours but with Maybelline White Super Fresh, I just have to blot and touch up around the nose area after 8 hours.
Awesome, right? Now, let’s do a fun experiment using the #UltimatteFaceOff kit sent to me. All I have to do is spray water on Brand X, Y, Z, and on Maybelline White Super Fresh Foundation. Watch the video below:
As seen from the video, Maybelline White Super Fresh absorbed the water in an instant! I even sprayed water on it twice and yet, it was absorbed just as fast. Brand X also absorbed the water but it took around 2 to 3 minutes and once the water was absorbed, it turned cakey. Now, imagine that on your face. The water sprayed on Brands Y and Z just stayed on the surface.
This proves that Maybelline White Super Fresh powder is the #Ultimatte in sweat and oil absorption.
I want you to experience it for yourself, hence this giveaway!
