Great loose powder for oily skin and scalp
I don't remember how I heard that some people use Fuller's Earth as dry shampoo. I gave it a try a couple of weeks ago and loved the result. Then I wondered if I could also use at as setting powder and that worked wonderfully. No other loose powder keeps my oily skin shine free for hours and hours like this does. However, while the skin looks great with the powder on, it actually feels a bit dry to the touch. If you have Fuller's Earth and use if for face masks, try it as a setting powder over your foundation and you will see what I mean. I will continue using it as it is the best thing I have found for oily skin. I know some people use corn starch. I have personally tried potato starch. It worked really well, but I worry that the starch and the heat from my skin may lead to the growth of bacteria. So I no longer use potato starch as setting powder. I also know that some people put loose powder of any kind and then dip their face in very cold water or spray their face with ice called water. I was interested in trying it at first, but the whole idea of starch and water makes me think of glue....People who have tried the powder +ice water claim that their skin is oil free for hours. I'm thinking, "Well, you have glue on your face, the oil can't get out..." Personally, I don't want any product that blocks the pores and does not allow for the oil to come out. I would like it if once the oil is out, to have something that absorbs it so that my face is not super shiny. So far, Fuller's Earth is my favourite product, even though it is not ideal. I give it 5 stars, because it works better than anything else for me.
