My Summer BFF
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about Shine Stopper - 1 oz:
When used as directed (patting, no rubbing!) this is a miracle product for oily skin! Even with a matte primer I find my DW foundation wearing quicker along my t-zone especially during the summer months. My skin changes in the summer tending to be more just oily all over vs combo, so although my primer works well on other areas outside my t-zone, I need this to keep me matte longer in that zone - and it truly does work for hours! This is a must in my make-up collection!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've only used this once, and was super impressed by it. Controlled my super oily t zone and made my large pores look smaller.
from San Francisco, CA
I use this daily before applying makeup foundation. It looks like lotion however, it goes on and absorbs quickly and feels like a primer of sorts. It's lightweight and there is zero shine on my combo skin. And in the summer, my skin turns to oily - this is helpful in that it calms the oily T-zone down and my foundation is extremely nice when I put it on after the shine stopper!
Holy Grail for Oily Skin
This has been a life-saver for me. In the warmer months, my T zone is like an oil slick. Usually within one hour of applying makeup, my skin is oily.What I love most about this product is that it does not cause my skin to break out with cystic acne. Some products have caused this even after 1 application, so I've avoided anti-shine products. Thank you so much Paula's Choice!

No more gleaming forehead!
About Me Minimalist
This is, quite simply, a miracle product. I've struggled with "shiny forehead" all my life, thanks to a hyperactive T-zone. This really works - and lasts for several hours. I have to admit, my first attempts at applying it were not very successful as the primer kept balling up and looking rather nasty. Then I watched a video in which Bryan Barron suggested putting a small amount on the wrist, tapping with the forefinger, and dabbing (patting) it gently onto the forehead. This not only did the trick, it saved me from burning through the tube too quickly.Here's the measure of how well this works: I attended an all-day tea ceremony event in full kimono during warm weather. I applied the Shine Stopper in the morning, then forgot about it until 7 hours later, when a group photo was taken. Although I was, by this time, uncomfortably warm, my face wasn't shiny and there was NO sign of forehead glare in the photo. I honestly think this is a lifetime first!

You're suppose to apply gel over your makeup which is weird, and hard to get use too, but it works and I'll purchase again.
Only Product that has ever worked for me!
I never leave reviews, but this product has inspired me to finally do it! I have a very oily t-zone, and I usually need to blot my face several times a day to remove oil. I've tried other products, including primers, that were supposed to control oil and shine, but nothing has worked like this! This product left me completely matte for hours longer than usual....about 6 hours. I use a pea-size amount, and tap it into the skin on my chin, forehead, and around my nose, after applying foundation or concealer. You MUST try this!!!
Buy this and you won't regret it

I think my favorite thing about Paula's Choice is that you can order samples before having to buy the full product. I have been looking for a solution to cover up my oily skin for YEARS and have had ZERO luck before I decided to try this product out. I ordered a few samples and honestly had low expectations because nothing had ever worked before. I am so so so glad I was proven wrong. I'm not going to lie it's not as if this product lasts 24 hours but I will say it lasts the majority of the day. The only time I have to reapply it is during the summer but that's because I sweat like a pig and DC humidity is not good for my face. If you don't believe me order a few samples and I promise you'll love this product as much as I do.
the best ever
This has been the only product that has kept me shine free all day. At first I just rubbed it on and then applied my foundation and it worked all right, but when I followed the instructions about patting it into the skin it kept me shine free all day. My face is extremely oily so this is a huge deal. I will definitely be buying the full size.
AH-MAY-ZING… when applied correctly!

About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
I tap a tiny dot on each cheek, tip of my nose, chin, center of forehead OVER makeup or sunscreen if not wearing makeup. TAP each dot into skin around each area, do NOT rub or it will ball up. Tapping until it is invisible works & is the only thing I've ever found that works to keep me shine free all day - and sets my makeup with no melt downs. The only downsides: a tad expensive BUT it lasts literally forever, and if I wear it every day with no breaks for a few weeks, I'll notice clogged pores/blackheads around my nasal folds and around my chin area. I switch it up with some silica powder every few days. I can generally get away with just sunscreen & this product on weekends, and I'm 41!
