Review: Avene Anti-shine Regulating Lotion

hi gorgeousness! yesterday was part 1 of my Avene oily skincare line review tackling their Anti-Shine Purifying Lotion. today is the next product in line - the Anti-Shine Regulation Lotion.

What Avene says:
Moisturizer absorbs oil and provides long lasting mattification.

40 mL, 1.35 fl. oz.

- Oily, blemish-prone skin
- Visible shine
- Enlarged pores

Skin type:
- Oily, blemish-prone skin

- Light weight, oil-free, fast absorbing facial moisturizer
- Sebum regulating capsules absorb oil while moisturizing the skin
- Provides long lasting mattification
- Avène Thermal spring water to soothe and soften skin
- Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic

How to use:
- Apply AM/PM after thoroughly cleansing with Cleanance Soap-free gel cleanser.

* Avène thermal spring water (75%) - Soothes and softens
* Cucurbita pepo extract - Regulates sebum secretion
* Zinc gluconate - Purifies
* Oil-absorbing powders - Absorbs excess oil, mattifies

my thoughts:
- the feel of this product is not ointmenty although from the swatch it may appear to be so. it glides on smoothly and gets absorbed by the skin fairly quickly and is easy to blend into the skin
- a little goes a long way. a single strand of product the length of third of your index finger is a good amount of product to spread across an area
- same with the toner, it smells like fresh water and it's sorta relaxing
- i can feel this product hydrating my skin in order to balance the oils needed and refrain my face from producing excessive oils
- tube type packaging is both handy and prevents messiness especially during travel
- i bought this together with the toner and i still haven't used it up!

as i've said on the video, at first i thought this was not working until i forgot to put it on one day and that day my face looked like a frying pan! i think i may have overexpected from this product then but now my expectations are realistic and i believe this keeps the disco-ball-shine off of my face! if you've got oily skin, this is a good product to check out!

random sharing: after lunch we'll be on our way back to Singapore. aww.. bye Kuantan, Malaysia! 

have you discovered any oil controlling products lately that worked well for you? care to share with a fellow oil mine faced, i mean oily skinned gal like moi!

hope your Tuesday is just terrific as it should be!
