With school starting soon I knew I had to find a fairy godmother of a product to bippity boppity boo my oily skin away. I often complain that I hate having an oily face. I see my friends with similar skin but never feel like they have it as bad as I do. Although I am probably wrong about that, I still get very self conscious; even if my Mom does tell me that I should be thanking the oil because it prevents getting wrinkles early in life. I guess there is a plus!
However, I still do not wish to have a shiny face so I recently went to Target on a hunt for a new pressed powder. Previously I was using the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder and it did a pretty good job but I wanted to see if there was something even better. That is when I came across the Neutrogena Shine Control Powder. It works wonders and guarantees what it states on the packaging.
It is a translucent, noncomedogenic powder for oily to combination skin types. Built into the powder is a rice protein technology that acts as a sponge to eliminate excess oil. Personally, this is the only type of face makeup I wear because foundations and other pressed powders easily irritate my skin. Therefore, I often play it safe and only use a matte powder but for all you make up wearers, it has an amazing lightweight consistency that is great for layering over makeup.
I have to say I am harsh makeup judger. As soon as I bought this product I wanted to see just how good it was. How did I test it out, you might ask? I went with my friends to a nearby carnival on one of the most humid nights of the summer and did check ups while we ate, after we went on rides, before we watched fireworks, and of course when I got home . On the packaging it said that it worked for up to 8 hours so I took full advantage and put it on at 4pm and was out until 12am. Although my hair may have ended up looking like I got struck by lightening; my face remained matte and it did not feel like it had a layer of oil on it. The Neutrogena Shine Control Powder definitely gets 2 thumbs up from me!
