Saw this on a 'Best Of' primer for large pores/oily skin list and got myself a small pot from an ebay seller who decants from the full tube into sample sizes. At first I thought 'what on earth have I been sent!?'. The texture is unlike any primer I've ever used in the past, it's just like a skincare lotion, none of those silicones or anything else and zero fragrance …Read more

Eh.

This seems to perform as well as any of the "mattifier" type products I've tried (most noticeably, Deciem's Matte 12 or Pore Delete). I apply it like folks have recommended, rubbing a little amount between my fingers then patting it on, only on my nose/nosebridge/cheek area where I get the oiliest and have the most pores.

I can see my pores. They …

When I was in my late 30's, I was oilier. I used this all over my face and loved it. After turning 40, I am oily at my t-zone only and drier everywhere else. I also started breaking out w/ a patch of eczema around the corner edge of 1 eye! SOO ANNOYING! So, now, I finally started taking advice from others. Lots of Hylaronic acid moisturizer, two, three times in the am, b4 makeup. Use emu oil …Read more

In my opinion a good primer is a product that with repeated use will not negatively affect my skin or allow foundation to affect my skin. In order to do this it must be silicone free and oil free (with repeated use silicones strap moisture, sebum, bacteria in the skins pores and create breakouts. They also enhance fine lines and wrinkles).

This product has made my makeup FLAWLESS …

It definitely helps with oil control, which I love. But... it also comes through your foundation as white and cakey. Even if I let it dry, even if I continuously rub it all over my face, it’s very hard to get it to go smoothly over your whole face and leaves a white film and makes your foundation kind of peel off. So I’m not sure I’d recommend it.

This is a must have for you if you have very oily skin, it is a total game changer. I can apply my makeup and be shiny in less than 2 hours on a normal day but since I've discovered this I stay matte for hours. It makes my makeup last forever with a light powder touch up after 6 hours or so, but just a tiny bit on my t-zone. That's a HUGE win for me!

If you have dry patches …

I have tried every primer out there to control my oily skin and believe you me, this one beat the competition hands down. I found this while looking for the ten best recommended makeup primers and found an article that rated this one as being among the best for priming foundation and all-day oil-control. Being a bit skeptical, I went ahead and purchased this online and fell in love. Gone was the …Read more

I was unsure about getting this because of the love/hate reviews on this; it seems to either work great or not at all. I spoke to a Sephora staff, and she told me the reason it doesn't work for everyone is because this isn't your usual mattifying primer that everybody else sells where you slather it on and then dump foundation on it. The focus is not for makeup application, but oil …Read more

There are two absolutely crucial things you need to know about this product:

1. Use it OVER make-up, not under (or use it on bare skin, if you're lucky enough to get away with it). If you use it under, you will get the sticky blotchiness described in other reviews. Patted gently over, and you'll just get a perfectly matte finish.

2. Use it EXTREMELY sparingly. I …

After a LONG time of searching to decide what primer to buy, I bought this one. Terrible choice. I've already used the smashbox primer, the La Base primer from Lancome, and a few primers from brazilian brands...they all did their job well, but I still wanted something to REALLY hold the oil from my skin, because I almost never carry makeup in my bag for touch ups. I saw a lot of reviews …Read more
