Oily or combination skin women will want to read this review. After applying my makeup in the AM, my skin stays fairly balanced, but in a few hours, my t-zone (the middle of my forehead and nose) starts to shine through. I don’t mind a bit of shine, but want to avoid an oil slick. I usually use a bit of pressed powder to mattify the area. One big problem that I find with applying powders is that they start out looking good, but if you continue to use them, they build up, emphasizing your pores and looking cakey. Blotting papers work well to eliminate shine through out the day. I heard that you can use disposable toilet seat covers for blotting because they are made of the same material as cosmetic blotting sheets are. Just a tip I heard from Damone on the show “10 Years Younger” on TLC.

I love that so many mattifying tints and primers are available, and they really work. Not only do they instantly mattify those oily spots, they look and feel incredibly natural. When I first applied Cosmedicine’s Medi-Matte Face Tint & Oil Control Lotion SPF 20, its thicker tinted appearance made me question how it would appear on my face. Soon, my fears where abated. Not only did it incorporate into my skin naturally and easily, Whoosh! My shine was gone, and not replaced with a chalky lifeless skin appearance, just perfectly balanced skin.

This shine-free natural looking skin kept up with me the entire day, with no touch ups needed! Cosmedicine even put an SPF 20 in it! I would only recommend using the Medi-Matte Tint on areas that are oily for you. This product really is amazing, 4 big stars, hearts, and whistles! Cosmedicine’s Medi-Matte Face Tint & Oil Control Lotion SPF 20 is a new best friend that I will look forward to using this is the upcoming summer and warmer months. Seriously, pressed powder application is not needed while using this product!

You can purchase this product at Sephora for $42 at, and can learn more about the Cosmedicine line at their website.
