With the change in weather, the skincare and makeup routine has to be changed. Every year, I spend a lot of money on foundations and primers, just in the search of one product that will save my skin from breaking out this winter. Winter always makes my skin dull and dry, on applying a makeup my skin breaks out and the visible patches show up that looks really unpleasant. I have tried using different moisturisers and primers but nothing worked with the foundations I purchased. Then, I started to search for foundations and every year I had to face the disappointment.
After a long time, that feels like a lifetime I finally found a foundation that worked for me. I recently bought the Smart Hydrating Foundation by Kiko Milano. I have been using other products by Kiko Milano and I found the lip products really moisturising and after using them I decided to give this foundation a try. I searched online for the reviews on this foundation but I found none, that got me worried but I decided to give it a try anyway and I am glad I bought it.
