Deodorant as a Primer for Oily Skin. Why You Should Know and Why You Shouldn’t Know this Beauty Hack.

There exist people who sweat a lot, and probably one of them who also have oily skin created this hack. We have to admit that having oily skin makes the long-lasting makeup looks like a challenge that is never ending, especially on the summer humidity days… I am one of them… I sweat a lot and I have oily skin too, in the morning I have a flawless makeup and around the mid of the day, I want to cry with what I am seeing in the mirror.

This hack is blowing up the internet (Youtube, Instagram etc). I saw a beauty Youtuber a few months ago using this hack, instead of a primer she used deodorant on her T-Zone in order to mattify her skin for a flawless skin-canvas for her makeup. She was happy with the results, so I thought to give it a try.

Dermatologists say that this beauty hack has side effects, it leads to irritation and may be to breakouts and allergic reactions.


First Impressions:
It makes the foundation application less blendable and harder to apply nicely all over the face, but it makes my makeup to last longer…

Overall Review:
I had positive and negative thoughts from the first impression so I thought to give it few chances more in order to give you a full review. I was using it, every morning, for a week. I was applying it like a silicon based primer, which means 5-10 minutes before I was applying the foundation. I could blend easily the foundation but so hard as the first time, BUT it caused me breakouts.

If I ever forgot my to leave my home without my primer I may use my deodorant but for a healthier skin, please always have with you a primer, not a deodorant! I advise you to not use this hack as the reactions may change from people to people and we never know how bad those reactions will be.

P.S. If you are sweating a lot, try the deodorant on the picture, you will be surprised that it can keep your armpits soft and clean all day long.
