Review : Krave Mineral Oil Eliminator & Skin Hydrator + Giveaway!

A few days ago I received the Krave Minerale Oil Eliminator & Skin Hydrator from the lovely Miss Ruffa of JAILEX COUTURE. I was ecstatic about the offer since I've been meaning to get my hands on this product ever since it was reviewed by Say! Dear Lord, I thank you for bloggers like her that introduce awesome products to followers (and beauty bloggers) like me! Miss Ruffa of Jailex Couture was also God sent since who doesn't like FREE products, right?

Read on for the full review plus a little surprise!

Old packaging.
New packaging.
Super cute packaging! <3
Shipping / Shop Packaging : 
Shipping was superb. I received this the day after Miss Ruffa sent it to me. It was wrapped up in bubble wrap to insure its safety plus there was a sweet little note attached to it. You guys already know I'm a sucker for details.

Design : 
I really like the fact that they revamped the packaging of the oil eliminator. The original version came with a flip-up top and it could get pretty messy especially if you're the type to chuck your products into your kikay kit that'll eventually be chucked into the bottomless pit that is your bag. *LOL* Now the product is safe from "accidents" because it has a sturdy screw top lid.

Effectiveness : 
I've been using this for only a couple of days but already it's sealed its place in my heart. I've tried it as a primer as well as a finishing veil. As a primer it has provided me with a smoother surface to buff my foundation on. As a finishing veil it has kept the oilies at bay for about 4-5 hours with very minimal touch ups and by touch ups I mean very minimal blotting. I continue to hope that this product works well for me.

Overall : 
I have a huge problem with loose powders but this product works so well on me that I've decided to make this an exception. That's how much I love it! It's powder is finely milled and feels really soft and silky on the skin. It looks like a ghastly white powder in the container but once you pat or buff it onto the skin it turns translucent and gives a very nice matte-but-not-flat finish wish I'm really diggin! It comes with only 3g of product but I tell you, a little goes a long way. I'd definitely repurchase this at P285 from Miss Ruffa of Jailex Couture!

DISCLAIMER : Product was sent to me for review purposes but all opinions stated are unbiased and my own.
Comes with a cute lil "puff" for application.
Comes sealed with Krave M. sticker which you peel off to use the product.
Now for the surprise! One (1) lucky Philippine based reader will get to bring home her/his very own oil eliminator & skin hydrator courtesy of Jailex Couture! Just follow the mechanics below...
