I'm a guy. I use it just to control shine. It last about 5-6 hours while at work. Only a quick touch is necessary.

It lasted about an hour for me and then I looked in the mirror and my skin was ridiculously shiny. I feel like I had the reverse effect with this product. It did not control my oil and instead made it worse than other products I've used.

answer 4
For me it lasted a few hours, maybe 3 or 4? I oily skin and large pores and use this in place of powder touch ups.

*It will go on much better and last longer though if you use your fingers to apply it versus applying it with the puff applicator that comes in the packaging. Using the puff doesn't distribute it evenly and takes a lot of your makeup off in the process unfortunately.

Does anyone get breakouts from this product?
I do not know if this product is the cause, but recently I have experienced some whiteheads and blackheads. I started using a Clarisonic a few weeks ago to clear up my acne, and my white/blackheads were finally going away. I began regular use of this balm and a mineral powder for acne-prone skin, and they have started to appear by the end of the day. I'm not sure it's my powder's fault as it is for acne, but does the balm break anyone else out? It could be something else for me.
