A good friend of mine has super oily skin and is always looking for a product to control it throughout the day so I gave her EXUVIANCE’s Sheer Refining Fluid SPF 15 ($32/1.75oz @ neostrata.com) to try out. I didn’t even have to bug her for her feedback as she came back to me after about 1 week of using it to give praise! Love that! This contains the ingredient Phytotal, which is a botanical blend that not only controls the oil production throughout the day but claims to reduce excess oil over time. Hmmmm. I told her to get back to me on that one. It also contains a NeoGlucosamine, which works on discolorations on the skin and improves the tone and texture.

We simply loved PHILOSOPHY’s The Supernatural Mineral Blush Duo back in January and we were able to try out some of the other products in the collection. This line has proven to me that they are not just body and skin care. Their color collection is a force to be reckoned with! All @ sephora.com
