Powder Long Lasting for Oily Skin

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

I don't wear makeup and don't want to wear makeup. I only use lip balm and face powder because I have oily skin. I'm in search of a face powder compact that I will last all day instead of having to use the powder constantly. Is there anything that works?


Shine Problem

Dear Shine Problem,

For oily skin, consumers at or gave the following pressed powders overall high average ratings for long lasting natural matte finish.

Folks with oily skin will need to touch up once in awhile, especially around the more oily areas of the face such as the T-zone (forehead, nose, chin). Some powders work better than others and a touch may be needed after a couple of hours depending on your skin's oiliness. In addition, blotting papers help soak up oil throughout the day.
