this product lied to me it promised me oil control which it didnt do it also didnt make my makeup last long liar ... waste of my money the only good thing is that if your almost empty with it you can always cut the end of the tube to get your moneys worth and lick the tube clean but other than that woulnt buy this again
I spend most of my time on the east coast of the US, where this primer works perfectly; it smoothes out my skin surface, helps my foundation stay on longer and mattifies my skin well. However I travel frequently to Southeast Asia and Australia, and it doesn't help much with my oily skin in the heat. I also wish they had a version with SPF, but this is good for when I go out at night (because I've heard that makeup with SPF is bad for flash photography).
I like this product pretty well, but I have little to compare it with since it's the only lip primer I've tried. It does a great job of smoothing and softening your lips, however it provides no moisture so you'll want to make sure to use Chapstick or a moisture-rich lipstick. It definitely helps my lipstick apply better. I actually like the way it makes my lips look by itself-very smooth and natural. It helps fill in fine lines and makes lips look a little bit plumper/healthier.
I love this product! It's effects doesn't last as long as I'd like, but it shrinks my pores and calms my oily skin for about 4 to 6 hours.
I go this for a birthday present, and I loved it. It blurs my pores and smooths out my skin. It doens't have a very good staying power but it doesn't make me look very oily. I actually don't think it mattifies, but I like the finish it gives so I don't really mind. The packaging isn't amazing but I can live with it. I have problems with allergic reactions to most primers (I get little bumps, and i think its from silicon) but this one doesn't break me out. and the ingrediants are so pure! Not a gazillion chemicals like most products. Overall, I reccomend this primer and I love The Body Shop :)
My skin is not super oily, just have some shine on the t-zone area. This product works well for me. I love the feel of it, and the instant shine control. The cons include: it's a bit pricey for s 25mL bottle, it doesn't last the entire day (but you can always re-apply a bit over your foundation). I think there are better quality products out there but I do enjoy using this product.
I don't love this product, but I don't hate this product either. I don't really have any feeling for it because it doesn't do much for me. Putting it on gives me the same results as if I didn't put it on.
It's supposed to help control oil on your skin and leave a silky finish. It does make my skin feel very smooth, but I don't notice it making a huge difference under my mineral foundation application. For oil control, it doesn't do much for my t-zone. I look and feel the same. I still get oily - no more, yet no less.
Waste of money for me because I don't need this product. I'm using it anyway because I can't bring myself to throw away $14. Maybe this would work better on less oily skin types, but for me, I can live without this product.
