I have very oily skin and i constantly have to use oil absorbing sheets. I tried this foundation praying it would be good as i have spent so much £££ on other foundations that have never worked for me. I like to be able to build up the coverage and i have always found foundations for oily skin are too thick for me. I got the oily/combination skin one as i suffer from dry skin on my cheeks. I have to say, i love it! you dont have to use much to get good coverage, it covers red spots and uneven skin tone really well. For during the day you only need a small amount and then at night if you go out you can build it up to suite you. it doesnt keep me totally oil free for the day, id say every 5 hours i use an oil absorb sheet, but thats probably because i am obsessed with not looking greasy! i use matt power over the top and it doesnt look too cakey. i would recommend using a primer however as it helps the foundation to sit on the skin better. the main downside is that a lot of product gets left at the bottom of the glass bottle so it can be quite a waste :( all in all, i am converted and would never use another foundation!
