I decided to write this Nurturing Force Blot Out Offensive Shine + Oil Control Cream Review because this is a product that I honestly really love. As a professional makeup artist, this is part of my arsenal of tools and products that can truly make a person look their best.
Nurturing Force Blot Out Offensive ™ works great alone to mattify skin, but also works great as a primer under makeup. Applying it on my skin, I immediately see improvements–my skin becomes matte, my open pores look minimized, and my flaws become less noticeable. In all honesty, I could have probably stopped there and worn it just the way it was. It works so well that I actually feel like I don’t really need much makeup. But since this also doubles as a primer, I also wear it under makeup.
I first discovered this product when I was still going to makeup school. We used it with models who had oily skin, but also those who have normal skin–simply because it really helps with oil absorption and makeup adhesion. In other words, it stops the shine and makes your makeup apply better, blend better, and last longer than how it normally would without it.
The bonus is that this is a high definition product, which means that it improves the appearance on your skin well enough that even if you look through xx megapixel cameras, your skin will still appear smoother and more beautiful than normal. This product is actually so good that they used it on the cast of the Twilight films.
I honestly have no big complaints about this product. All I have to say is that you have to be careful to always cover the product again afterwards because it can dry quickly. I even love that this product has no parabens and no silicones, which means it’s suited even for the most hypersensitive of skin–in fact, it even has soothing aloe vera.. I suppose the only thing I really don’t like is the scent, but that’s probably because I’ve never been one for scents of any sort.
I really recommend the Nurturing Force Blot Out Offensive Shine + Oil Control Cream.
Oh, and here are a few tips: It applies best with a little heat, so I prefer to use my fingers with this product, but you can also use a foundation brush or sponge. Use a spatula when you scoop up product so you can keep the rest of it sanitary–oh and of course, don’t use too much. This product can leave a bit of a white cast if you use too much.
