Post in Oily Skin

Which is the best mattifier for extremely oily skin?

I have extremely oily skin and have tried many mattifiers including: Dr. Brandt's Pores No More, Bliss Steep Clean, Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Shine Mattifying Gel, Smashbox Photofinish Light, Cover FX Clearprep, Bare Essentials Prime Time, Philosophy's The Present, Benefit's Dr. Feel Good, Peter Thomas Roth's Clini-Matte and none have worked. Any suggestions on a strong mattifier that will work? Thanks.

Try Urban Decay de-slick mattifying gel. I LOVE IT!  My sink is normal but I sweat a lot on my forehead area (embarrassing, I know) and de-slick has stopped that problem.    I would recommend using a primer over it before applying makeup or your skin will have that chalky, flaky problem that no one likes.  Moisturizer, de-slick, & prime... makeup time, can't go wrong!  Smiley Happy

Thank you, I will give UD's De-Slick a try after applying my Hope in a Bottle moisturizer with Illamasqua's Matt Primer on top, hopefully that will do the trick! =)

My skin is beyond oily and UD's De-Stick In A Tube works GREAT for me as well! You should try the UD All Nighter make up setting spray too, it helps with the oil as well.

Illamasqua Matt Primer has worked great for me.

Hello! You said you had tried Smashbox Photofinish Light, but have you tried the Anti-Shine? http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P9890&shouldPaginate=true&categoryId=3990

 

This is amazingly mattifying under makeup or alone...it has worked very well for me. It's not greasy or heavy at all.

 

For touch-ups during the day, I can't live without my Clinique Stay Matte Sheer Pressed Powder compact -- if you don't want a powder with pigment, it even comes in a translucent shade. I *love* this powder -- it instantly mattifies, but leaves a flawless finish, softening imperfections. And, for $19, it's a bargain compared to other products.


I hope this helps! Smiley Happy

 

Vichy Pro Mat with SPF 15 is a GREAT mattifyer! I love this stuff! So far it is my absolute favourite of all the ones I have tried. However, I still get a bit shiny by around 5pm or so but so far this is the best stuff I have stumble upon. Give it a try! And I know that it can go on sale for pretty cheap, around 19.99 Canadian!
