VERY Special Powder!
I was a little sceptical at first. Thought the description was too good to be true. Boy was I wrong! I have extremely oily skin. 2 hrs after washing I have an oil slick acroos my T-zone. A light dusting of this amazing stuff and I can be confident all day my face looks fresh and not shiny and embarassing. I have also used it to heal existing pimples. I pat a bit on before bed and by morning a raw oozy zit is so much closer to healed than I could ever imagine. I LOVE this stuff! My new best friend!

a powder with many benefits
Not only does this powder control shine, it really does work to heal up open, raw pimples. I took this as a sign and used it successfully to heal a cold sore in 3 days! Worked better than any cold sore treatment out there!

bye bye make up
Gotta say, I really can say "miracle" powder to this. I apply it everyday, it evens out my skin tone, while blocks out shine. I have also noticed a big diffrence in shine control. For the price of it, its a Win Win..

Wow Shine Free
Amazing powder. I have extremely oily skin, acne prone and using this powder has controlled my shine about 90%. I used it over my moisturizer and foundation and this is truely a miracle powder for me. I am 45 and used many products and never found a powder worked for my oily skin, wish I would have known about this years ago. I am loving this product line. If you have extremely oily skin you have to try this, you have nothing to lose, if like me tried it all. I wish you had a spa in San Jose, Ca. Thank you Mario!

I don't even use powder anymore!
I got this product and started using it after foundation and under my powder. I don't even use the powder anymore, I just use this. I pretty fair skin, but I'm not pink - so most powders ended up looking too "pink" on my skin. This is a nice neutral powder that controls oil, and cancels out redness. I dust it on my face after foundation, and I barely have to blot my skin anymore. I can pretty much go all day without looking shiny. Like another reviewer said, it doesn't even smell like sulphur. Try it!

This powder is great! I have normal/oily skin and would always have to blot my face at least every two hours. This product not only controls the excess oil but evens out my skin tone. I apply the powder with my makeup and it looks great! This is a product worth trying.

This powder is fantastic. I have oily skin and I use it every morning after I moisturize. I stopped using my regular concealer because this product completely evens out my skin tone and makes my skin look great. The powder looks very natural and disappears right into your skin. Plus I don't have to blot away oil at lunch time any more!

The best powder I've ever come across for controlling the oil on my nose and concealing that redness from skin irritations. I highly recommend this product and will continue to use.

Oil Be Gone! Forever!
I love love love this powder. I have exceptionally oily skin all over my face. Before using this product, I had to blot my face at least once every two hours despite trying countless supposedly oil-absorbing powders, creams, primers, moisturizers, from other companies. MB's powder is a God-send for those of us who suffer with oily and heavily acne-prone skin. I am in my thirties and have suffered from cystic acne for 10+ years until I discovered MB. All of their products live up to every detail stated on their website. They use quality ingredients and you will not be disappointed with any of their products. A little powder goes a long way and lasts all day under heavy makeup. Buy it - you won't regret it, really.

Honestly-best prouct ever for what it's meant for!
I have a very,very oily t-zone-mainly my forehead. I have tried so many products to try to maintain and control oil in that area. The rest of my skin if is pretty normal, my nose and chin areas tend to get oily as well, but not like my forehead. This is the ONLY product that I have ever used that not only controlled the oil on my forehead-but it kept it at bay-ALL day long! And, on top of that it controlled any redness and, if that isn't enough, it also helps to heal and prevent those little, unsitely whiteheads that tend to appear at times around my forehead. Trust me; this stuff is incredible!!

another great product
This controls shine for me very well and the yellow shade of the powder works well to conceal redness. Even though it contains sulphur it does not have much of an odor. well worth the $$, give it a try!

This powder is great for reducing a shine and is even good for dry skin after you've moisturized. Sometimes moisturizers can give even dry skin a t-zone shine and this takes care of that. Because my skin is getting more and more clear with the MB products, I hsve not been using foundation. Just this powder. Its can substitute for makeup if you have olive skin with just a little redness in the t-zone and around the nose. Also great for drying up pimples and keeping them dry after you apply the acne products.

Less Shine is so Devine!
I tried the special healing powder after 2 friends raved about it & it really does work! Just mix a little in with your loose powder & apply daily...you will be shine free!

I used this product, along with the buffering lotion, under my makeup when I had an extremely severe case of cystic acne. I've also used it alone on individual cystic acne breakouts when I'm in my apartment all day and on weekends when I'm doing errands around the neighborhood (with my baseball cap on).

This powder is great for oily skin. My skin is very oily and I use this every morning over my makeup ( just a little in areas that need it)
and it definetly keeps oil away for hours. I swear it helps with breakouts too, it also conceals a little since its yellowish and it cancels out redness
