Its my first time trying this Za blot powder. And it works well for me. I am a happy user for sure..
Usually after I came back from my breakfast about an hour back, I can see oil shine on my forehead and cheeks. Now I don see the same oil shine anymore, it's bcos I used my blusher brush to brush all over before I head out to work. Now my face feels mattifying and fresh, just like I just freshly put on my makeup at home. Plus, I also applied the Za pore minimizer too.. Maybe this do works a little too...
I also realised after by end of the day, only little oil shine appeared on my face. How good that was! And I noticed my face looks more radient and fairer too...
For the price : Its affordable. (definitely getting it again after I finish using)
Bad points: No mirror attached.

I use this oil blotting powder as foundation when I first got it. Of late though, I have been using it as what it is and say I'm liking it. After lunch, I normally touch up by blotting my face with a tissue to absorb oil, and use this when I am going out in the evenings after work. I blot my face with a tissue as per the instructions, and then apply the powder on. It looks pretty nice actually, no caking at all, absorbs oil and makeup looks refreshed, even suited for undereye area without highlighting any fine lines. I have re-purchased recently.

I break out after using this. But quite oil controlling.

This is by far the BEST oil-blotting powder I've used. better than the urban decay de-slick. I also bought it in Asia (Taiwan), and I can't believe how expensive it is on ebay!! 21 dollars?? I remember spending like 10. someone needs to start selling it in the US =(
I think the powder is good because it's made for Asian oily skin and tropical/humid climate. anyway, it's the best I've ever used

I'm so sad this isn't available in the United States. I picked it up while in China and now I'm begging my friends who are making trips over there to buy it for me. It's a white color so it suits my pale skin tone, absorbs oil, and evens out my complexion. I used to wear a mattifying base, blush, and cover up every day but now I just slap this on. It's great! No gaping pores or oil slicks.

I love this blot powder! It doesn't give that caked on feel like some other powders do and its in a cute and small convenient case with a nice full and soft pad. The only downside is there is no mirror. They've discontinued this brand here so I had to opt for Mac Blot. :[ But this powder was a great product for me, no color so it matched my skin tone and made the texture of my skin silky smooth. It was only about $12 here so I would buy this continuously. :[ I really liked ZA New York.

firstly, i wish there was a mirror in the compact.
but overall it's shine absorbing power is good. will probably not repurchase because i think there're cheaper powders which can do a better job.

Love this for helping to keep shine off my face. However, the effect doesn't last long and my face gets shiny after an hour or so. It gets a tad irritating and inconvenient because the compact doesn't come with a mirror. Price is rather reasonable in my opinion.

so far, I bought this twice. I like to use it with a big round brush in the morning. Brushing on looks more natural and feels lighter. my skin has been clearer!! but I agree, I wish there was a mirror and more of the product!

I love this powder :) This retails for SGD$16.90 for a 5g compact :) I hate it when i come home at the end of an outing looking like i had just slapped oil on my face. It comes in a blue cmopact. It controls shine very nice, and keeps your skin matte for the day :) It has an edge over the other powders because you don't feel like you have just applied goo on your face. I couldn't feel it but it was there. The sponge is cute and the packaging is attractive. But the price is a bit expensive as compared to the other powders in the market. Will not repurchase this when there are cheaper face powders in the market since I go through each one so quickly :)

I'm a big fan of this product and I've been purchasing it for over a year. It might not be the best product but it works well for me, I don't use any foundation or base and this oil-blotting powder does take away the shine from daytime lotions, sun block, etc. in my morning ready-to-school routine. It's also the only powder I've used so far that blends naturally well with my skin tone. Doesn't last long on T-zones and wears most off by the time I'm outta school, but it's still keep a partly matte look on you. Also, your skin have to be very moisturized or else it'll show all those flakes. If you're looking for a better oil-control powder this would only work for an hour and you'll start to get shines (still less than without the powder), use oil-blotting paper and that'll do the trick.

i think this stuff works pretty good, but i wouldnt buy it again because its so expensive!! ($9) and i do wish it came with a mirror...

Nothing great. It does blot away shine, but does not keep it away for long. And it has this pinkish color which is very unsuitable for human skin. The compact is deceiving, there is so little product in it! And there's no mirror either :(

i bought this product twice. the compact look kinda big but the powder actually little and not as i tought it will be. it's great to make your make your skin look matte if wear over foundation. blot away shine and stickiness. great for oily face.
pros: make ur makeup look matte.
; not cheap and not expensive
;easy to carry in ur purse

i tried this powder which is supposed to act as an oil absorbent. That is I put on my makeup and then after sometime, my forehead esp. start to feel oily and i'll this power to clear away the oil without having to apply my lose power to prevent my skin from looking too heavy..This was recommended by my friend. I've combination skin and I thought using this compared to using a oil absorbent paper would not clog my skin.. how wrong I am! the inital using was nice after prolonged using, i feel so uncomfy on my skin and i feel too dry and certain parts of my skin peels a bit.. the price is reallly cheap..but unfortunately its does nothing for my skin type! =(

My fav powder to keep the oil at bay! its an oil- blotting powder and if i remember clearly the package did say that this can help cleanse our pores too!!its great for touch up. (its translucent and doesnt cake up)
having a combi. skin i tried many dif shine-free powder etc. for my oily t-zone.this one leave my problem areas matt for quite a long time. it works well on me, i m on to the third one now . HeeE~! its a small blue compact, pretty design. however no mirror. Awww! might be a little troublsome though.
Another reminder..its really impt to keep the sponge applicator clean, so i blott oil off with C&C before applying a layer or two on my face.
