I have very oily skin and I hated the idea of using pressed powder over my oily skin since I felt like I was just clogging my pores and just rubbing in my oil. I used it in my senior year, in only areas where I needed it, so between my eyebrows and on my cheeks, where I tend to get oily the most. I can definitely say for a fact that it helped me look my best. My complexion looks so much better after using this (mine was matte). It never broke me out and it became a staple in my everyday makeup. It was very acne friendly for me, especially for my superficial acne. However, when I did have a massive pimple and I needed to cover it up, it would provide good coverage for the beginning of the day, but then at the end of the day, my pimple would be three times the size compared to in the morning, so I don't recommend putting it on broken pimples, and whiteheads that will inevitably get popped.
