Do you use talcum powder or compact powder?

Usually people use talcum powder for the face and body and ladies use compact (small box with pan cake) powder. I use talcum powder generally and while going out I use compact as it stays longer. What about you? Which powder do you use?

I have seen some people not using powder. But I am wheatish colour and little powder is needed for my face.

I normally use face powder and compact while attending a party at night.

I think compact is used for outings as it stays longer on the face.

Hi Buchi, I don't use any powder at home. I just apply a thin skin care lotion on my face after the face cleaning twice a day. Before going out or to working place I usually would coat a thin layer of powder on my face. I use pinkish loose powder earlier. I shift to other brand of loose powder at the moment. The type of powder I use currently is a type loose powder in white color. I bought it after the promoter told me that it contained vitamins which is good for our complexion. There are flying dust everywhere outside. I prefer to apply powder. I hope this could protect my skin from the accumulated of fallen dust on it straight away Happy posting

You are right. Powder protects from dust and also we will feel fresh by it's good fragrance.

I use mineral makeup, so I am not really into compact powder. My powder usually comes in jars. On extremely warm days however, I love using talcum powder on my chest area, and back to keep me dry and avoid sweat.

My daughter uses it. She says it is good. I think I will try that.

I hardly ever use any kind of powder anymore. I never wear things like these days. I like to use baby powder every now and then though. I usually use a liquid form instead of powder now.
