    How/when do I use Strawberry Blur Drops in my routine?

    Strawberry Blur Drops is a treatment-primer hybrid that can be used multiple ways: before moisturizer to help refine pores and control oil production, and as a silicone-free makeup primer after moisturizer to prep the skin with a satin blur finish!

    Is Strawberry Blur Drops a mattifying primer?

    Strawberry Blur Drops absorbs excess oil for a mattifying blur effect and soft, satin-pillow skin finish, without the use of silicone! It can be used as both the oil-controlling treatment step of your routine before moisturizer, and after moisturizer to prep for makeup!

    Do I need both Strawberry Blur Drops and Strawberry Smooth Serum in my routine?

    Strawberry Blur Drops is a great option if your main skin concerns are noticeable pores and excess oil, and Strawberry Smooth Serum is a great option if your main skin concerns are breakouts and uneven texture. Both Strawberry products can be used in your routine for complementary benefits! Strawberry Blur Drops can be used both before moisturizer as an oil-control treatment alongside Strawberry Serum’s potent breakout-busting formula, and after moisturizer as a blurring primer with a satin finish. You can always mix and match products in your daily routine based on what your skin needs each day.

    What is the difference between Strawberry Blur Drops and Dew Drops?

    Strawberry Blur Drops is a silicone-free treatment-primer hybrid that instantly blurs, refines pores over time, and balances oil production for soft satin-pillow skin. Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops is a hydrating skincare-makeup hybrid serum that brightens the skin over time with niacinamide while prepping the skin for makeup with an instant dewy glow!

    Can I use both Strawberry Blur Drops and Dew Drops together?

    Yes, you can! For makeup prep, Strawberry Blur Drops can be applied in specific oily areas such as the T-zone where oil control is needed most, while Dew Drops can be used to highlight the cheekbones or brow bone for a cosmetic dewy glow. For your skincare routine, Dew Drops can be applied as your hydrating niacinamide serum for long-term brightening, and Strawberry Blur Drops can be applied after for long-term pore-refining and oil control.

    Can I use this product with Strawberry Smooth Serum even if both contain BHA?

    Yes, you can! Strawberry Blur Drops are formulated with gentle encapsulated BHA that is safe to use with other exfoliants in your routine, including Strawberry Smooth Serum.

    Strawberry Blur Drops give the skin a satin-pillow finish with a mattifying blur!

    Examples of different skin needs and routines, using Blur Drops in multiple ways:

    Dry skin with visible pores: For dry skin, Strawberry Blur Drops can be applied after hydrating serums or moisturizer in target areas where pores are more visible to help blur and refine pores over time.
    Combination skin: For combination skin, Strawberry Blur Drops can be used in specific oily areas, such as the T-zone, where oil control is needed most.
    Oily skin but already uses BHA/many exfoliants: If your oily-skin routine already contains many exfoliants or actives, Strawberry Blur Drops can be used on top of moisturizer or SPF for instant oil-control!
    Oily skin but not breakout-prone: For oily, yet not breakout-prone skin, Strawberry Blur Drops can be used during the treatment step of your routine for instant and long-term oil-control!

    What is the proper way to store my Strawberry Blur Drops?

    Keep in a cool, dry place. Do not keep in direct light.

    Can you use it day and night?

    Yes! If this is your first time using an acid treatment we recommend patch testing first and gradually introducing the treatment into your routine. It can be used either daytime as a makeup primer to help blur pores, or nighttime as a pore blurring treatment. The encapsulation of the Salicylic Acid is designed to be more gentle on skin and overall less sensitizing.. If used during the day, make sure to wear sunscreen at the end of your skincare routine, after Blur Drops and your moisturizer.

    Can I wear this under and over makeup?

    Yes! Apply a pea-sized amount of Strawberry Blur Drops before moisturizer to help refine pores and absorb excess oil, and apply a pea-sized amount before makeup or foundation to achieve a satin-skin base! Be sure to let Strawberry Blur Drops fully absorb before continuing on to the next step of your skincare or makeup routine.

    Love it, will always re-buy

    I didn't replace this immediately when my first bottle was empty and after a couple of weeks I noticed the difference in my pores. I won't make that mistake again! It's not the most mattifying on my T zone, but the other benefits make it worthwhile.

    absolutely PUTRID

    I received a sample size of this from emi jay for their limited time partnership with glow recipe & was so excited to try it as I love strawberries. but y’all … this smells so horrendous I quite literally went around smelling other products just to make sure I still had my sense of smell & didn’t have covid lmao. I can’t even describe how foul this smells. it smells almost… moldy ?? & it kinda burns my nose. that being said, I’m giving it 2 stars because I was unable to give this product a fair shot considering it never made it to my face after testing in on my hand

    i do love certain aspects of this product. i’m not sure it’s blurring my disgusting pores but i DO know that the whole bottle only lasted less than a month. $32 for a “full-size” bottle. i feel a bit cheated. i bought a spare before i realized how soon i’d actually have to use it. way too pricey to keep up with this skin care routine, and that is really disappointing.
