I get shiny in the T-zone. I bought this to fight that battle, and so far I'm winning. Has great staying power, and prevents me from getting too shiny at the end of the day.

This studs works amazing and even though the price is a little more on the expensive side it really does keep me from being oily all day and I have extremely oily skin. I'm not sure if this helped much with my acne but it keeps my skin matte

I like to use primer to help minimize my pores. This goes on smooth and then my foundation will apply so easy overtop. It gives me confidence knowing that it reduces the appearance of my pore.
