It has SPF which is always a good thing. It helps to smoothed my face with a lightly powdery finish. I do not look so made up with this. It really does help to control the shine. At least for about 7 hours. For its price, it is one good shine free powder.
I have been just using this powder, because I am lazy to put on foundation powder. But, this is enough to give the coverage I need for the day to day basis.
The only thing I do not like is the puff that come with it. The casing however is too thin to be able to put any other puff in.
