Mehron SKIN Prep PRO™ Review

Mehron Skin Prep Pro review beautyjudy

Disclaimer: PR sample, see bottom. In recent months, I’ve been reaching for mattifying primers and mists and anything that can help my T-zone from becoming an oil slick by midday. When my face gets oily my makeup breaks down; and with a whole lot of red and rosacea underneath, it’s not a confident or comfortable …

I’m also not comfortable wearing nude shades that contradict my skin tone. I’ve just never thought of myself as able …

I can’t for the life of me remember who recommended it, but someone told me about their mattifying mist and since I’ve been struggling with an …
