I've been using the cornsilk original satin face powder for years but it's obviously been discontinued. I paid £16 a few months ago on amazon (it used to be £6!) and it's ridiculous now. So I'm looking for a replacement. Tried the smash box powder and don't like it. I get really oily skin and cornsilk is the only one I found that worked for me. Tried Chanel/mac/all the high street brands. And don't like the blotting pads.

Does anyone have any recommendations that aren't really expensive. Needs to be a loose powder. Thanks!

I used to love Cornsilk because it was good for mopping up oily breakthrough... I think the best one that's most like it is One Heck of a Blot by Soap & Glory. It's about a tenner and you can get it in larger Boots. I think it's transluscent only so doesn't add any colour.

Though I should add it's not loose ! Only a compact pressed powder as far as I know. I use it and so does my 18 yr old daughter - we both love it.

Innisfree anti sebum mineral powder, from Amazon. It's brilliant.

It's a loose powder - I use that in the morning and it works the best out of any powder I've tried. Every powder works best if I use a mattifying primer as well (I like too faced primed and poreless)
