Great daily mattifying primer; a slightly flawed staple
from Bay Area, CA
About Me Beauty Expert
Comments about Shine Stopper - 1 oz:
I've struggled with oily skin my whole life, and using PC's products has changed everything for me. I use their cleanser, toner, exfoliator, mattifying sunscreen, and then on top of it all...I use this. It keeps my foundation on, keeps my face matte, and since I put my makeup on around 8am, it lasts until almost exactly 2. Which is its flaw, but one it's aware of. It only claims to stay on for 6 hours, and that's how long it does. So I touch up after work, and if it's going to be a long day then I use a setting spray in the morning and that keeps it going until I get home. I would give it 5 stars since it does everything it says it does except that putting it on is annoying. If you follow the instructions it works great, but patting it on instead of being able to rub it in means it's extra sensitive to timing, and you have to play around a bit to find the right amount of time to wait before putting on powder foundation. Too soon and my foundation (Urban Decay Naked) goes on way too thick and looks awful and I have to start over. Too long and it won't last me until 11, let alone 2. I've used better products for the same purpose, but they were way more expensive and contained loads of unnecessary skin irritants. So I won't be wearing this to a friend's wedding where I'm going to be in picture after picture without a chance to catch my breath and retouch my foundation, but I'll wear it just about every other day.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It Really Works!
By Humidity Queen
from Miami, FL
About Me Beauty Conscious
I have extremely oily skin, and live in a very humid client. Until I used this product, even with a powder foundation and face powder, I often had to blot my face several times a day to remove the oil -- even insider in an air conditioned office. Now with Shine Stopper, I barely have to touch up my makeup once during the day. This product really works to control oily skin, without drying out my skin. Thanks, Paula's Choice!

Does not work
from Buffalo, NY
I have combination skin and read some reviews so this seemed like a great product to help the shine, mainly on my forehead. I used this for a few weeks and I almost think it made it worse! I tried applying with my finger then switched to a sponge thinking that could help. Nothing worked and I stopped using it. I would not recommend this product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Works SO well!
By Happy User
from Portland, OR
I have normal/combination skin and am not super oily, but my nose and forehead get shiny after a few hours after applying powder. Not with this stuff!! I put it only on my nose and forehead, maybe a bit on the cheek bones, and I am shine free all day. Again, I am not super oily and live in a "normal" climate that is not crazy hot.
from Tracy, ca
I have very sensitive, acne prone, oily skin and this primer kept my sensitive skin calm and aggravation free. Acne was controlled and most of all kept my very oily skin in check and very matte. Made my pores seem smaller and made my foundation and powder look better, perform better and skin felt and looked fresh. I have tried many different products over the years that have not worked as well as this. I purchased a sample and I am now purchasing the full size. I recommend this for anyone but especially for people with oily skin.
OMG an oil control product that actually works!

About Me Minimalist
I have tried literally everything that is supposedly "oil control" and nothing works except this. I bought a sample and dabbed a small amount on my T zone after my morning routine. It stayed oil free for about 3 hours, and even at the end of the day when I did my nighttime routine it still wasn't as slick as usual. I'm definitely going to include this in my next order!
Not bad, not great. Does't work for my skin.
from Toronto, ON
I have been using this product over my T-zone for a while now, varying the amount used every time to test its efficacy. Regardless of the amount of product I use, my opinion stays the same. It's not bad, as in it doesn't break me out, but it's not great. It reduces shine in the beginning and makes my skin look marginally better but does nothing for my oil production over the day. I have a very oily T-zone and nothing has worked so far - this product is no exception.
from Hot and Humid, FL
Granted I just used this product for the first time today but it was absolutely amazing. My makeup stayed on the entire time and for once I wasn't a complete greaseball. I think I'm in love
from Atlanta, Ga
I was amazed at this product. It has the texture of a cream. I use it like a primer before my tinted moisturizer. It helps my T zone so much! Highly recommend!

Great over makeup!
Despite trying numerous foundations, primers, powders, and application methods, I'd always had a problem with my makeup breaking down after a few hours. My face looked shiny and it was EXTREMELY obvious I was wearing foundation once it started to break down on me. Not a good look!Shine Stopper is the first product I've had that prevents that deterioration. It's great! I've experimented with applying over and under my makeup, and over seems to work best as suggested in the instructions.
