A Review : Neogence Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Make Up Serum

Make up base and make up primer. Some cosmetics brand the product as a primer, while others call it a base. The two are the same thing essentially. Basically, it is used to prepare the skin for what we are going to put over it next, namely foundation. 
My make up base was almost a week running out and I’m looking for a mineral make up base by Youngblood. Unfortunately, it was sold out! Later I stepped into Sasa and I found Neogence Make Up Serum. The SA said it act like a make up base, so let give it a try. Now, my skin type – My skin is combination-slightly oily skin. On a scale of 1-10 on the oily meter, 10 being the most oily (or should I call it oiliest), I fall somewhere around a 6. I know it's said that oily skin doesn't wrinkle as fast as dry skin but it's still really annoying. My t-zone was seriously oily during noon and I definitely need a good primer.

Take a look of my face without make up serum. This is my face at 830am when I leaving my house for work, I took these photo in a car and I lovee because it give me natural good lighting.
Oh by the way, I had RMK Liquid Foundation in 103 on my face. I will suggest this foundation for those who have dry to normal skin because it has very watery texture and it easy to apply, feel very light on skin. It gives sheer, dewy, luminous and shiny look.
This is me after lunch break. See my T-zone gets oily and continues to throughout the day. My foundation breaks and my skin tone totally uneven and greasy wreck. When I finish work I look like I've just been for a 2km jog.

This is the product, Neogence Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Make Up Serum. 50ml in a bottle. The bottle a bit handy, but the design is good. It's a pump dispenser bottle so it makes getting the product out very easy and more hygienic. It is a semi-clear cream color. I use 1 pump for my face - it's more than enough, but I find it too tempting to push the pump all the way down when I'm using it. 1/2 a pump would surely be sufficient. Anyway, I focus this on my t-zone and then spread the remainder on my cheeks. It leaves my face feeling silky soft, allowing me to apply my foundation effortlessly.

This is me, same time and same place with the make up serum. 

Well certain place my foundation went break, but at least it helps some, but not perfect. My face stays relatively non-oily for most of the day. I do get a tiny bit oily at the end of the day, but it is still way less than if I weren't using this foundation. I mean foundation for oily skin.
I've been using this for a little over 2 weeks and I love it! I definitely recommend this to anyone who has oily issues who can't afford a more expensive product at the moment. It fills in large pores, wrinkles and fine lines to create an even surface so that anything you pile over it, won't flake off or look uneven. The best part was it doesn't cause me an irritation.I think this would be oke for people with more of an acne problem too because it contains Dimethicone which is used in some acne fighting moisturizers that help control shine as well. I'm personally not a good test subject because I don’t have an acne issue. Just the occasional pimple once a month with "that time”. Haha. Till then, oke let’s do the rate just like food review.
