A Smart Product to Tame Oily Skin

Are you one of those women who carries a powder around for touching up oiliness? Well, ditch that compact for this one-ounce tube of balm that will make your skin look better in seconds.

Recently I was listening to Gilbert Soliz, one of Sephora’s makeup artists, give his best tips and tricks for smooth, flawless skin. He raved about Benefit’s POREfessional ($29, benefitcosmetics.com), with its velvety balm texture and multiple uses. Not only can you apply it before your concealer or foundation to achieve longer lasting makeup, but, Gilbert says, it’s perfect to dab on at midday to reduce oiliness–instead of caking on more powder.

Powder will only sit in your pores, sometimes adding more creases. The POREfessional, on the other hand, will leave your skin matte, as if you just did your makeup.
