I recently read that make up artists use pure glycerine to create a flawless and dewy face. Mising a drop of glycerine into your foundation before apllication is said to make your skin look a lot healthier and glow a lot more.
I mentioned in a previous post that I use Aloe Vera gel for the exact same reason. I bought pure glycerine and decided to compare the two products.
Please note that this is my personal opinion and depending on skin type, results may very.
* COST- The pure glycerine is roughly about a quarter of the price of the aloe vera (making glyerine the best budget buy)
*APPLICATION- Both products mixed well with my foundations (I tested it with The Smartshade make up, liquid foundation and mousse foundation). Both these options melted and blended easily into the skin. However I did notice that the glyerine mixed with the foundation provided a lot more coverage than the aloe vera mised with the same foundation
*APPEARANCE: I have oily skin, I noticed that even after applying powder the glycerine left a skin very shiny (this may be appropriate for people with dryer skins).However after a few hours (and 1 powder top up) my skin looked healthy and glowy without looking too shiny.
The Aloe vera gel given my skin a subtle glow and I never experienced it being too shiny or overbearing.
Both these products work well and I think that the Glycerine provides a great looking, considering the affordability.
*PURCHASING: When purchasing the glycerine make sure that its from a well known brand and that it states PURE glycerine on the packaging. The Product should NOT BE A RUNNY LIQUID, it should be a thick sticky liquid. Seeing that you need a very small amount at a time, 1 bottle should last a very very long time.
