Finally found it!!!
from Las Vegas, NV
Comments about SHINE STOPPER - 1 oz:
best product I've ever used to control my oily t-zone. Even though I use products that usually says mattifying I always end up with oily skin after 3 or 4 hours. I live in Vegas and I just cannot avoid being oily in this hot weather til' I tried this. I don't wear foundation but this keeps my tinted moisturizer all day long.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My miracle product
from Baltimore, MD
About Me Beauty Conscious
I have oily skin that looks shiny as the day goes on. I used to go through so many of those little oil-blotting sheets. But then I tried Shine Stopper. It is a miracle. Not only does it control oil (HOW??), but it also leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. It remains effective for an active 12-hour shift. My favorite Paula's product by far! I don't leave the house without it.

Works as replacement for oil-blotting sheets!
from New York, NY
About Me Beauty Expert
I absolutely love this product, which is why I'm always surprised when I see reviews here or on YouTube of people saying it "did nothing for them." They're using it wrong!!!!I've tried this product as a primer, or on top of my foundation at the beginning of the day, and it's true--it does nothing. However! If I use it about 4-5 hours into the day, when my very oily skin is showing through, this product perfectly absorbs the oil and keeps me matte much, much longer than my good ol' Clean & Clear oil-blotting sheets ever could. Just thought I'd share that little tidbit for anyone who thinks it doesn't work!

Holy grail product
from Starkville, MS
About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
I never write reviews - literally, this is my first review for any product. I have oily, acne prone sensitive skin and I have tried almost every primer on the market to help control oil in my T-Zone. I gave up trying to eliminate oil completely a long time ago, but I just wanted a few hours of slick-free face! This product keeps me oil free the entire work day (~8 hours)! Incredible! It is also very gentle on my skin. I apply the Resist tinted moisturizer (let it dry) and then a mineral foundation. I apply this product over my foundation using a makeup sponge. I just gently dab the product onto my skin, never blend! I have applied under foundation too, but I found that I like applying over my foundation better. If you are thinking about buying, give it a shot!

It does nothing for me
About Me Minimalist
I do not have overly oily skin but I tend to get shiny in my T-zone. The Shine Stopper does absolutely nothing to mattify my skin or prevent shininess. I do not feel it helps my makeup stay put. I pat as directed and have even tried dabbing with a cosmetic sponge. It is not worth the price at all. I'm personally surprised it has so many good reviews. I wanted to love it, but it is really did not work for me at all.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is always in my purse!
from Kitchener, Ontario
About Me Skin Care Professional
My skin is oily in the T-zone and during the day, my glasses will start sliding down my nose. I pat a little of this on and voila! In seconds my skin has a powder dry finish. The lotion is invisible and a little goes a long way. Oh, and yes, it goes on over your make-up. Apply it as often as needed and you have an instant oil-free complexion that lasts a decent amount of time. Love.
Controls shine on my nose
By Paula's Choice Fan
from South Hadley, MA
I use this product in the morning under makeup to control shine throughout the day and I use it at night so I don't wake up in the morning with a slick, shiny nose. I think that less oil on my nose makes for fewer breakouts there. This product is fairly effective. It doesn't hold off the shine all day with one morning application, but it does better than if I hadn't applied anything at all.
Prompt delivery; arrived in good condition.

I really wanted this to work!
from Oxford, OH
About Me Paula's Choice Fan
I have tried this product under makeup, over makeup, with moisturizer and without. I've rubbed it in and patted it on. I've used alot and a little. Nothing works for me! I am still oily and, honestly, I seem to be oily sooner than usual and my foundation slips around and wears off worse than any other primer I've used. It has been an extremely disappointing product (and waste of money).
Holy Grail Product!
from Middletown, CT
This is the best product ever! This product is something I never want to run out of. I panic when I begin to get low - it's that good! My skin is super oily and acne prone, so oily that my skin is a disaster about 1.5hrs after applying makeup (that's when I dont use shine stopper).When I do use it, it stays matte and as close to perfect as possible for over 8 hours. I first apply it over my moisturizer to ensure that my makeup goes on smoothly. Then I apply it over my makeup in order to keep the shine away. I find out that this is what works best for me as if I only apply it before makeup, the oil still comes through. However, if I apply only on top of my makeup, it lasts a good 6 hours.So I recommend that to get the maximum effect, you should apply before and after makeup! I hope Paula's choice never stops making this HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT as I cannot live without it!
I Can't Live Without, Because It Works..!
from Calgary, Alberta, Canada
There are many products out there that 'claim' to mop oil and keep you matte. Shine Stopper actually does the job and does it well, without irritation or having an effect on makeup. I dab on before foundation (with SPF), or just use it directly under my moisturizer and I am good to go for the day. Never stop making this please!!!
