The Bau Del Aire oil absorbing primer + mask combo was an interesting idea that my skin enjoyed for the most part. Had it been summer when I received it, I could have used it more as my skin tends to flip flop with the seasons (dry in fall/winter, oily in summer) but I did use it enough to form an opinion.
The watery thin texture threw me off as I was expecting something either creamy or gel like to come from the bottle, but I did shake it up so I figure that the thin texture is how it is supposed to be unless my bottle is broken. The main ingredients are purified water and magnesium hydroxide from sea water so I suppose I should have figured that it would be like that.
It says to not use it as a primer that often, so I only did that twice. My t-zone can get super shiny so I only applied it to those areas, especially my nose. It was invisible under my makeup and didn't irritate my skin, so I was happy with the application and will use it like that once my skin becomes more oily in warmer temps. The makeup didnt cake up or anything, so that is a major plus.
As for using it as a mask, I've done that as well and pores appear smaller because they aren't shiny and oil filled; I did that as a treatment like once a week also but on different days than when I used it as a primer so basically twice a week in total.
It's originally from Australia and now ships to the US :D Oily girls, rejoice! You can purchase it here:
