Okay, I hate that this has fragrance. But other than that, it works well for me. My skin is a major grease fest daily, even with so-called mattifying makeup and powders. But if I take a pea-sized...

Terrible. I'm throwing it away; it's that bad. Doesn't block shine at all. However, it Does not make dark skin look gray.

Still, can't for the life of me find a decent facial primer since Dior decided to d/c their Pore Minimizer primer. I'm what you would call extremely oily. Everything gets oily and shiny in just 10...

This is the only primer that is actually effective in controlling the shine on my face throughout an 8-hour work day, and this includes high-end primers too. I have super oily skin that shows tiny...

Yes I is a bit grainy but it is the best drugstore primer I have used. My skin is very oily and with this primer I'm mostly shine free for the whole day. I recommend this product.
