    Hello, I have got a slight problem as my skin gets a bit shiny after a few hours. I was wondering whether there would be any kind of product that makes skin look shine free for a long time or even a whole day, be it powder or gel.

    I have been reading about Pure and Matt by L'Oreal, but some people say it doesn't really work.

    Any other ideas?

    Vichy do a mattifying moisturiser which is good. and a quick dust of face powder should do the trick

    Get shine control/blotting paper from superdrug. It absorbs excess oil and stops you going shiny.

    Reading your location , must be nice to be in a warmer country. If you have oily skin like me you are going to be worried about your looks.

    The problem is you don'( want too much oil in the skin or to little to dry out the skin. I would say about getting a oil free cleanser then use your daily skin routine to put a bit of moisture into the skin
