About Me Minimalist
Comments about Shine Stopper - 30 ml:
Have been using Paulas Choice Shine Stopper for just over a month now, and so far I'm impressed with the results. I have oily and acne-prone skin, but since using this product, my skin is definitely less oily than perusal. The products I use in my skincare and makeup routine is the same everyday, and since incorporating this product in my routine, I believe that in conjunction with the Resist BHA 2% Liquid, my blackheads on my forehead have massively been minimised and the pores on my jawline have reduced in size. Cheers to improvements!

About Me Beauty Conscious
The only thing that I've found so far that comes close to controlling the oil slick that is my nose and eyelids! (I've used 3 other primers and a bunch of matte foundations, but none have been as effective as this.)I apply a layer on my nose and eyelids after moisturiser, wait for it to dry (important) then apply foundation and the rest of my makeup, then apply another very light layer gently on top of everything. I don't bother with powder anymore because I don't need to. Definitely give two layers a go! Thanks Paula! Please, please don't discontinue this ever.
Where has this product been all my life
I usually get oily around my nose and t-zone area within half an hour of washing my face. I am forever powdering my nose to reduce the shine throughout the day. After using this, my makeup stays matte for most of the day. I have used a lot of powders before to get the matte look to stay but this product is the best to date. I either mix it with my foundation or apply it on top of my bb cream. I only wish I had found this product sooner.
Holy grail to combat oiliness

Absolutely brilliant. Can be used as a primer under foundation and make up holds beautifully. No shine no oiliness at all even in the warmer months. An absolute gem of a product and I highly recommend it!
Best oil/shine control I've ever used!!!
from Brisbane, AU
For years I'vee been searching for an oil control product that actually works and doesn't just claim to. My skin is oilier than most people who say they have oily skin. So many 'top ten best oil control products' lists that I've tried over the years and this is the ONLY thing that has kept the shine at bay for more than half a day. It's fabulous! I came across it by accident when I ordered another product and chose it as a free sample. Can't go without it now!
Great To control oil
Really great to control oil, it keeps skin matteCan go a little funny when used over makeup, I use a makeup sponge to dab and apply After I've put foundation and powder on Make sure skin is moisturised or it will dry out
This has changed the way I feel about my skin.
from Sydney, AU
I use this primer daily under my foundation for work. My foundation used to slide off my face within a few hours as my skin became oily, I would constantly powder my face and worry about looking shiny. Now I don't give my face a thought all day, and when I touch it in the afternoon, it feels silky and dry. It is particularly fantastic the days after I have used the 2% gel the evening before. I can't believe what a difference it makes.. I won't be without it now.

Best investment ever!!
from Wellington, NZ
Love the smoothness on my skin and it actually works on my combination skin for a good 8-10 hours under makeup (ie. I mix it with my foundation). It glides on very smoothly and with other Resist products, my skin looks a lot better (no blotchiness) with make up. Also it evens my skin tone...no more Benefit Pore-fessional minimiser..i threw mine away and swear this is the best product ever for those who want powder like finish and minimises pores.

Best shine control product I've used to date
I use this in the mornings over my makeup. I find it works best over rather than under. It sets to a light powder finish as indicated and needs to be dabbed on, not rubbed in which is fine to do. Keeps the shine at bay for a good number of hours (although not all day which is fine as I wasn't expecting it to!)

Best primer, leaves an amazing silky finish. I have extremely oily skin, and wear full coverage makeup to cover up acne scars and redness, uneven skin tone and freckles, this product really does help makeup stay put longer than others I've tried. And my makeup feels so much better on my skin, I don't get that heavy greasy feeling while wearing this. Very impressed. Very happy.
