Thats exactly what I'm gonna do start walking around with baby wipes to wipe my face and get rid of that oily sheen look on my forehead. I only really have a problem when temperatures get over 75. Before it never really bothered me and I don't like using powders because what if my clothes accidently touch my face or something.

I have tried using baby wipes, but it also wipes off my makeup. When my face gets greasy, I use oil control wipes. That way, I am only taking away the oil. I am not sure what you meant when you said using powder because it might touch to your clothes. I am currently using mineral make up, and aside from it's long wearing quality, I never have problem with sticking to what I wear.

taking off make up is exactly what I use for taking make off . so soft and they smell so good. . and I love the ease of the packaging! I have heard great things about mineral make up . is it as good as everyone is raving about? best part of this time of year though is that I dont wear much make up . . my skin tans well and I love the healthy glow it gives me . . and as my skin tans well it is on the oily side. . so the baby wipes are a good skin freshener for me!

I have a medium tone and I usually get away with not alot of makeup but mostly I prefer it I like natural tones and the main things I focus of buying is the liner for my eyes, some suddle blush and nice red lip color

We have a lot of good quality mineral cosmetics here in the Philippines. However, I also use some from abroad. One product that I would suggest, is Everyday Minerals. They give a way samples, so you can choose from their website on what shade or coverage you want. Just check out their website. You can also hear or read reviews of their products to see which shades works best for others...this way, you won't be basing on one person only. I usually check out Youtube for reviews, because I sometimes get bored in reading. There are a lot of make up gurus in youtube who mentioned Everyday Minerals. Another product, that I believe is available internationally, is Monave. Since I have a lot of blemishes, I love how it's coverage really covered unwanted spots. This way, I don't have to use so much products on my skin. Hope this helped :-) Cheers!

What is baby wipes? My skin get little oily when it is really hot too, I hate to see my face shinny!!! Especially the forehead... I just use some tissue to wipe it, I want to know if there are other methods to help too!

I do have oily skin as well, and I have used baby wipes like you. It does help because it makes my face fresher. And after that I dab loose powder to make the shine go away.
