The Erno Laszlo Regular Normalizer Shake-It is something so different, I could not wait to try this! What is it? Essentially it is 3/4 toner and 1/4 foundation. It has the coverage level of a tinted moisturizer and the application of a toner. It works like a toner, to help control oil, but helps eliminates the extra step of applying foundation and gives the matte finish of a powder. There are so many products on the market (albeit, bad ones!) that contribute to oil and acne, but this does just the opposite. You might discover it helps improve you skin’s appearance because you will need to put fewer products on to cover your imperfections which will better allow your skin to breathe! You will also find yourself needing to apply powder less often to keep shine at bay.
Shake to mix treatment and color, saturate cotton ball. Stroke over face and chin (it will feel wet). Avoid eyes. Allow to dry, smooth out with fingertips. Apply a second coat if additional coverage is desired. Follow with powder or foundation for additional coverage.
Follow the rest of your makeup routine like always, only apply this for foundation instead of your normal liquid/cream/powder. If you need to apply concealer, do it after applying the Normalizer. This Normalizer Shake-It is monumental and for those of us with oily skin, this is what we have been waiting for. Even for those of us without oily skin, it is nice to have a product that offers some coverage and will actually help control the oil through the day. I hope you love it as much as I do!
