Hey, Babe Skin Pre-Makeup Oil Full Review + Breakdown

So for today's topic, we are going to be talking about a new skincare brand called Hey, Babe Skin. Now this is a homegrown brand and over the course of last month, they had recently launched their pre-makeup facial oil that you see above, which reduces oil production with makeup and combats oily complexion as well. It can be used as a primer before the application of makeup and it also can be incorporated as part of your skincare routine.

Now from what we gather, this is a pretty versatile product and upon using it before makeup and within our skincare regime for the past 3 weeks, we have to say that we agree that it can be utilised both ways. So with that, let's do a breakdown of its packaging, ingredients list and the overall experience.

Packaging & Price Point

So first up, let's discuss on the product's packaging and price point. Now we enjoy simple concepts and for a facial oil, this one is nicely minimalistic. As for the consistency within, the formulation is contained within a small glass bottle and holds up to 10ml of product which can last you for up to 1-2 months upon daily use. It also has a dropper to dispense the product which is hygienic as it avoids direct contact on the skin; and is great to utilise in order to distribute the preferred amount that you would want as well.

In terms to its price point, a bottle retails at RM49.00 which we find extremely affordable, plus they are also having a promotion for Raya where you can get their bundle of 2 x 10ml bottles and 2 free travel size pre-makeup oil for only RM88. Now this set is only available to the first 50 in line, so its purchasing limit is going to be while stocks last.

What Does It Do & Ingredients List

Now as you go to their website, you can see that their full ingredients list is pretty much on display which is greatly appreciated for transparency purposes; but for easier reference, we are going to be compiling it and putting them down below for you guys to view as well. However the main ingredients that you should take away from it is its jojoba oil for controlling sebum and moisturising purposes as well as Vitamin E which fights off free radicals and is for skin repair.

The Overall Experience

As mentioned earlier, there are 2 ways to use this product and the first is utilising it within your skincare regime. Now for this personally, we found that the pre-makeup oil provided slightly more benefits - just because it gives the skin such a nice moisturising aspect. Plus it absorbs really quick and gives a nice healthy glow after which is great. A good recommended combination is if you mix 1 drop of it with your daily moisturiser, for it gives the moisturiser of choice a good hydrating boost and provides a natural dewy look after.

In terms to makeup application, you can mix 1-2 drops of the oil with your preferred foundation. Now this one personally is a little tricky because the type of foundation you choose would make a difference for the full effect. Now for those who have dry skin, you might want to go with the 1 drop route for medium to full coverage foundations, because this oil will mattify the finish. Nonetheless with dewy or hydrating foundations that provide light coverage, you can mix up to 2 drops and it will give a very nice, slightly matte and natural look.

Now on overall, we have to say this is a very nice pre-makeup oil to have, and for the price point, it is definitely worth a try. In terms to its results and effect, it does work in terms of controlling oil while giving the skin a nice hydrating effect, but if there is one downside, it would be on the scent. The fragrance is not really overpowering per-se but if you were to smell it too close or too much, your throat would get a little dried out. However this wouldn't put us off, but it is good to take note of just in case you are sensitive to fragrances of sorts.

Available in 2 sizes which is in 10ml for RM49 and 30ml for RM99, Hey, Babe Skin Pre-Makeup Oil definitely lives up to its claims. Plus for the price point, ingredients and its effective results, the product is most definitely worth a go. So if you would like to know more, do head on over to their Official Website to have a look, but for more updates, you can follow them on their Official Instagram Handle as well.
