I'm afraid I did not like this at all. Couldn't apply it well enough to my skin. Made me look quite ghosty and greasy. Didn't 'get' this product at all. Disappointed as JI products are...

It does its job as oil control primer. Also good for sensitive, acne-prone skin. The only primer, I believe, that doesn't break me out. The problem I have on this is that the primer CAN look...

I apply Absense with a foundation brush on my t-zone before I apply the JI Pure Pressed foundation. It really helps to mattify any shine and creates a smooth canvas for me to apply my foundation. I...
