Lola Refine Shine Anti-Shine Gel is one of those products that works - it eliminates even stubborn glow - and it is practical - it can be used as a make up primer or over make up any time when you might be feeling the heat. The problem is that I don't like it. This is probably entirely personal, but I find it tight, uncomfortable and drying.

I am convinced that this is due to the second most dominant ingredient, sodium magnesium silicate. This is used to make cement and it is present in the most uncomfortable cosmetic I have ever worn, Athena 7 Minute Lift.

The rest of the ingredients aren't that bad. There is grape seed extract, mango and guava, yeast, horse chestnut and biotin.
