I am one of those women with an extremely oily t-zone. I’ve tried many products, press powders and moistured as much as I can so that my skin didn’t work extra hard to produce oil. My t-zone is even more problematic in the spring and summer. I finally tried a product that works instantly and lasts throughtout the day. I want to give a spotlight to Shine Stopper Instant Matte Finish by Paula’s Choice – it’s like a miracle in a tube. I had dinner with my girlfriends on Friday night and rave about it over cocktails. My best friend can’t wait to try it. It’s awesome.
The 1-ounce tube is $21.00 and it’s clinically proven to keep skin perfectly matte for at least 6 hours and leave my skin with a silky-soft, powder-like finish. It has something in it called MICROSPONGE® Technology that keeps oily shine in check. This proprietary technology works instantly and over time to help absorb and trap excess oil as it reaches your skin’s surface. Much like a sponge absorbs moisture, Microsponge uses special porous polymers that not only absorb excess oil but also leave your skin feeling powdery smooth and fresh. Think of this technology as millions of spherical sponges working to keep your oily skin looking beautifully refined and perfectly matte without dryness or dullness.
I used this product with a moisturizer and without makeup. It works best when applied before makeup like a primer, but can certaintly be used over makeup — after blotting excess oil. I am obsessed.
