The Best Oil Absorbing Products

You spend the morning preparing for the day, including applying flawless makeup.  But by noon, your face looks like you slathered oil all over it.  If this sounds familiar, here are some of the best oil control products available so your look stays flawless all day.  I have an oil problem in my T-zone only, so I use some of these products only on my problem areas. In the summer, oil is definitely more of a concern, so I use oil control products all over.  In the winter, I usually just use them on my T-zone.
