I recently bought the "one heck of a blot" foundation by Soap and Glory which is for oily skin but when I tried it out, it clung to every tiny bit of dry skin I have, which isn't a lot since I am quite oily. I don't understand since it git quite a lot of good reviews. I've tried application with a brush, sponge and fingers but all are bad. Should I add coconut oil or moisturizer to it to stop this happening? Any tips would help!!
You may need to exfolliate and better moisturize, which I know can be a bit worrisome if you have oily skin. Perhaps try a lotion with oil control that also keeps you hydrated. I also find that using a primer can help smooth out rough patches on your skin. If that still doesn't work, then the product just isn't right for your skin.
Sometimes foundations that have great ratings aren't great for everyone, however you should try moisturizing those dry spots before you try again! If you're worried about being oily, then you can try using a translucent setting powder after.
If it's for oily skin, it's not going to be compatible with the dry parts of your skin. It doesn't sound like you bought the right make up for you. Products for oily hair and skin are designed to dry up the oily. If there's no oily, your skin and face and hair just looks dryer. You need to return it.
Try using face primer first, let it seep into your skin. If you have the beauty blender, add very little coconut oil on it and then blend the foundation with the oil on your face. I had the same problems with foundation. Ever since I used face primer, it's made it easier to apply. Just don't rub the foundation, do a lot of dabbing.
Hmm. It could just be the formula doesn't agree with your skin. What's your skincare routine like? Do you exfoliate your skin regularly? People with oily skin (such as myself) have to exfoliate more often than other skin types. So 2-3 x per week.
Also, I've heard sometimes the layers of products people use together don't agree and that can cause clumping. What moisturizer do you use? What do you put on your skin before foundation?
The same thing happened to be with nars matte foundation. Also got great reviews. I too have very oily skin especially in the summer and somehow the foundation managed to magnify all my problem areas. I think the best solution is to just return this foundation. Not every one is going to work for your skin. I think you shouldn't have to try so hard to make it work
