Since teen years of my life, I've been dealing with a serious case of acne. It would all be fine if I weren't that self-conscious about the way I looked, but unfortunately things aren't always the way we want them to be. I had tried taking skin care routines, full of anti-acne products and retinol serums, but I'd either be lazy and miss or I'd grow tired and impatient leaving half way through the routine. So, naturally I started thinking about a much easier alternative for someone impatient like myself.
You've guessed it; face powder. The perfect product to at least make the skin look smoother and clearer than it really is. I've been using face powders since I was a teen and I had quite a struggle. I had to make sure that the face powder itself wouldn't induce more acne. That's when I found Bobbi Brown's face powders. They're totally suitable for my skin and easily sit on it without any peeling. If I had to pick a favorite it'd be Bobbi Brown's sheer finish pressed face powder due to its texture.
