Can anyone recommend a good anti-shine face product?

My face is always super shiny by the end of the day (and it looks awful in pictures!). My skin is clear but just oily, I guess, and powders and blotters don't really do much. I'd prefer not to wear heavy foundation as I don't wear much makeup. I also have extremely sensitive skin. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

  • I LOVE Prescriptives brand of makeup. It used to be carried by major department stores for years, but now you can only order their products online.

    My skin is super sensitive, and I hate heavy foundation, but their "virtual skin" foundation is so light and sheer it doesn't feel like I have on any make-up. I'm not sure if they have an anti-shine product, but if they do, I'm sure it's worth a try.

  • The best thing I've tried for oily skin is Magix Face Perfecter by Avon. It comes in clear or you can get it tinted. Its on sale for 7.99 right now too if you want to try it Hope that helps!
