The oil controlling face powder in this Australian beauty line is pale and white enough to scare off any person with tanned to brown skin. But – surprise! – the powder is translucent if used with a light hand. It keeps the face shine free amazingly well.
According to cosmetic lore, the rose version is best for dry skins and the lavender one works best on combo to oily skins. Be careful, though, corn starch and silica can clog pores on some skins. This caused blackheads to develop on my face when I used it. Try before you buy.
Ingredients: Corn Starch, Rice Starch, Silica, Lavender Oil; Herbal Extract Mixture from Calendula, Arnica, Witch Hazel, Daisy, Sage, Rosemary; Orris; Lauroyl Lysine, Rose oil.
I have combination skin and this is one of my favourite products; it’s a powder that controls the oily sheen on your face giving it a matt finish. The powder is very fine with a beautiful light lavender scent and goes on translucent.
The packaged in a white glass jar with a plastic lid; the container is pretty heavy. Not the most convenient to take out. You do need to reapply once if you’ve been out all day and especially in summer.
It really does control the oil, I’ve noticed my face stays matt longer without needing to blot or touch up even in summer. I love how light it is and absolutely feel like you have nothing on. I usually use this over sunscreen/BB Cream/anything that leaves my skin looking shiny or foundation before blush. I apply slightly more to the T-zone area where it usually gets really shiny. I have not experienced it clogging my pores, break outs or more blackheads from using this. (Although according to the site where I got the ingredients from. I may clog pores etc ~see above~ So yes do try it out first if you're concerned.) I don’t suggest your sniffing the powder though =P or any type of loose powders... lol
This is definitely one of my HG. It also comes in a Rose Silk Dust for dry skin. I have not tried Jurlique’s range of silk finishing powders yet so can’t make a comparison between the two. The Silk Finishing Powders comes in: Citrus, Rose and Lavender.
editted: fixed the spelling and grammar errors I noticed. lol =P
