My Facialist Recommended This Breathable Powder Foundation, and Now I'll Never Go Back to Liquid

As with all good things in life, this choice set in motion a positive chain reaction, and months later, I have clearer skin, a pared-down regimen that works for me, and even a skin-friendly foundation I love so much, I'll never go back to a liquid one. And I did zero percent of the heavy lifting for all of this.

During my most recent visit to Austin's Golden Hour Skincare, I was complaining to my facialist, Val, about how even my most beloved liquid foundations were turning my face into a greasy mess in summer's sweltering heat. She was quick to recommend Glo Skin Beauty's Pressed Base Mineral Pressed Powder Foundation and sent me the Amazon link like the angel of all things skincare she is.

Since the pressed mineral powder offers a semi-matte finish, I've found it to be perfect for when I need coverage that can stand up to Texas heat without my face turning into an oil slick. And because it's both non-comedogenic and made with antioxidants, it's safe for acne-prone skin types and can even help to improve skin's natural complexion while you're wearing it.

More than 1,500 Amazon shoppers — many of whom discovered the pressed powder foundation through their own dermatologists and skincare professionals — feel the same way as me. "I've been using this product for about 10 years now and it is the only foundation I wear on my face," one customer said. "I originally bought it from my dermatologist's office but since I moved I ordered off Amazon and it's the same quality and product. I have one in my car, purse, and home for any touch ups that I need. I will buy it over and over! Could not recommend more."

To make the switch, head to Amazon and snag the pressed powder hundreds of shoppers and I have already fallen for.
