          I have a tendency to have oily skin. As the day goes on my face gets shiny :( So this product is perfect. It is smooth (and makes my skin feel silky) and keeps my makeup fresh for hours! The only con I noticed is there is no protection case for the sponge unless you keep it in the box.

                I have no idea what this product is used for. The directions doesn't really tell much but I do like it on my face but confused what it does? The sponge is too big. Idk where to put it after. It should have a bottom spot for it.

                        This definitely does mattify. Just remember a little goes a long way. If you apply too much it can accentuate wrinkles. I carry this in my purse for touch ups if I need it, instead of powder.

                            This did not come with any directions for use. After paying this price why doesn't it come with directions. Do I blot do I blend. I think it takes my makeup off.

                            If anyone can help me with this I would appreciate it. I'm sure that no one from Mally will contact me.

                              Will this work well with powder foundation? I have bad acne and have to use a color correcting primer, a concealer, and then dermablend powder foundation to get good coverage of it. Will it work in place of the setting powder for dermablend?

                                Absolutely, you can use Face Defender with powder and liquid/cream formulas of foundation, and yes, Face Defender can replace your setting powder, as it provides the same mattifying and makeup-setting benefits.

                              I have large pores and most of these types of products settle in them instead of erasing them which in turn make my pores appear larger. Does this product truly do what it says and erase or will there be some setteling in the pores?

                                This product diffuses the look of large pores and won't settle into them. To extend this product's wear and further smooth your skin and minimize the appearance of large pores, we recommend using in conjunction with Mally Perfect Prep Poreless Primer:

                                Apply Perfect Prep first to bare or moisturized skin, followed by your foundation, and finish with Face Defender for a flawless complexion all day long!

                                Face Defender should be patted onto the face over your makeup to set it. Please feel free to watch Mally's demo video on our product page to view her technique!

                                No, when applying the Face Defender softly pat this innovative, sheer formula all over your face. Never swipe or rub as this can move your makeup.

                                Certainly! It is formulated for all skin types, and those with dry skin love it for its pore- and fine line-minimizing benefits.
