Deodorant on your face? Don’t do it! Here’s what to try for oil control instead

For the past few months, I’ve written quite extensively about armpits and antiperspirants.

Reader question: Primer and sweat proof makeup

Hi Liz! I have been an avid reader of your blog since last year and I think you are amazing! Especially because you also use low end cosmetics that are affordable for the average Pinay make up junkie :) I just wanna ask what affordable make up primer you can recommend and tips for sweat proof make up.

This BB cream is specifically designed to be water-resistant, and I rather agree!
