This stuff is expensive, but it works amazingly well. I use this on days when I know I won't have time to touch up my make-up (i.e. blot oil) throughout the day. When I use this under my foundation I don't have to worry about whether or not my face looks oily and shiny. It's pretty thick but you only need a thin layer over your face. I have never found any primer that works better.

Let me start with saying that I have very oily skin, it's in my genes ugh! I live in southeast TX and it's always hot and humid down here, and that only makes my oily skin worse. So I found this about a month ago and have been using this every morning, as primer, before my foundation. For being an oil control product, I give this a 3 bc it does work for about 3 to 4 hrs and then it stops working. I don't think I got as oily as I would without this, but that's not the point. This product is specifically designed for me and ppl like me with oily skin, to control oil for at least 8 hrs, and it doesn't work. And on top of that, the price for this stuff is around $44, which isn't bad, but it is for a product that only works for about half as long as it's supposed to! The reason why I say that I would buy this again: I haven't found another makeup primer-type product that helps, whatsoever, to keep my oil at bay for even an hr, so I'll keep buying this until something new comes out that works better :(
***EDIT*** I will not be rebuying this ever. My foundation, even using a oil control foundation, will start breaking down about 2 hrs in. And I get so oily, you can see your reflection in my face. I have found a better product, Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Stay Matte Hydrator, and I suggest that you try this 1st, since it has less of an impact on your wallet, and I have found thru test trials with both of these products, that the Clinique product works much better!!

This shit seriously works. I always kinda forget how freaking GOOD it actually stops the oilyness untill i'm somewhere without this cream.
Like today, I was at my sisters house and had a date with this guy tonight. She didnt have this cream, so I tried hers.
After the date I came home, looked at mirror, and freaked out by how shiny i was, Hence this review, I heavily feel the need to share the heavenliness of this daycream.
It just really controls the shinyness. No mather what kind of other products you use, this will work. I know its expensive but its one of the few creams for oily skin that really works. I tried Nivea, Garnier, Olay, even Paula's choice, but none of them could control the oiliness.
Seriously, you will not be disappointed.

I seldom splurge on items but this one I will do it in a heartbeat. I have combination skin and I get very oily around my cheeks. I place half a pea-sized drop of this on my cheeks before applying any makeup and smooth it out well. This stuff certainly does what it says it'll do. It controls the oils and smooths out my skin. I ended up getting a small sample size tube and it lasted me nearly a year, so I just bought the full sized one and I fully expect it to last me years. Great stuff.

This product is great, it shrinks my pores, controls my oilly skin and has even left me receiving compliments about whether I am wearing make-up or not! Which I don't :)
Would recommend this is if you have oily skin, will always buy!

This is a very weird product. Yes, it controls my shine. My face looks matte for 6-8 hours after applying this. However, when I use my fingers to touch my nose, I can see oil on my fingers but I can't see oil on my nose at all. Will not repurchase, I feel that when I use powder it give me a more matte look than this one.

Love this for my combination skin. I get dry patches but my t-zone is very oily, especially in the summer. I was using this just in the warmer months but I've decided to use it year round. I keep trying other primers but I always come back to this. Some days I don't have to blot at all, where with other primers or none at all I'd have to blot at least once or twice. Helps my foundation last longer and look better just because there's less oil to help it slide off and get patchy. I just use a small amount on my nose and spread it out from the center of my face. As another reviewer said, it doesn't work if you use it with another primer. It must be some chemical reaction. I find it works best on top of a very light moisturizer (I use the clinique gel usually) and then sometimes I put clarins balm on top around both sides of my nose where my biggest pores are. Definitely give this a shot.

Worked wonders at first. Kept my makeup on longer and kept the oilies at bay. But man did it my oily skin out something awful. My skin peeled and was left ashy. I think it would be great for normal skin. Won't pay again.

I love this primer! It is the best primer I have tried!
I have a really oily t-zone and nose. I put this on after moisturizer and it keep me looking fresh and my foudation is perfect all day. I don't even have to use blotting sheets at all anymore and I will powder around supper time if I have further plans. It does not 'ball up' like other primers I have tried. This is great stuff!
It is a bit pricey, but totally worth your money and a little bit goes a long way. My only other complaint would be the smell. It isn't great but I perfer it over a nasty perfume smell.
