I was going to suggest Mac studio fix powder. Not sure if they do a mineral one. I have the Bobbi Brown powder you mention. I assume you’ve been down the Bare Minerals route? Or Lily Lolo (you can order samples online).
I think Clinique also do a powder makeup and it may be ok if you’ve got sensitive skin.
I'll try Mac, Nars and Laura Mercia. I used to love Laura Mercia products but they discontinued something I loved, can't remember what , and I moved to Bobbi Brown.
I'm not a fan of Clinique, I find the counters scary, but I'll use it as a back up.
I had a horrible experience with a Bare Minerals make-up artist so I've avoided them. I left the counter feeling awful about myself. They said you can't just use the powder, it doesn't work on its own, you need a primer them something then a powder, then another powder. I was overwhelmed by the hard sell. Maybe I should try again.
I don't trust my colour judgment enough to order online-even after trying samples. If nothing comes of the mac, Nars and Laura Mercia I'll brave up and try it.
Do you like the Bobbi Brown skin weightless powder Blah? Do you use primer before application, or any other powder on top?
I don’t use other powder over the Skin Weightless one. Sometimes I would use it over a liquid foundation. I must admit I haven’t used it much recently, but it is a very good stand alone powder foundation. If I remember primer I may use one but my skin is quite fussy at the moment and I’m trying to see if I can just get away with moisturiser and spf.
You can get topical Clindamycin. I’m surprised the GP won’t give you a topical version. I had some success with plain Fucidin cream. NOT Fucidin H- that has steroid and it won’t help you at all in the long run! Maybe go back and explain the impact it is having on you. That it makes you feel compelled to wear makeup which only serves to exacerbate the problem etc
