Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by First primer that has ever worked for me Face/makeup stay fresh all day. LOVE this product! Other shine control products actually made my skin more oily. I use this every morning. Let the product dry/set a bit and then use makeup. I actually just went and bought a "back up" even though I haven't gone through the first bottle. PLEASE....keep making this product - It's changed my life. Oct 6, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not great I have very oily skin, and this primer does nothing to control that. Using this primer my makeup typically lasts 1 to 2 hours. This primer does little to nothing to prevent my makeup from literally removing itself. I do live in a very humid climate, which is also a contributing factor, however, I still would not recommend this product Oct 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by awsome for oily skin! My face does nothing but spew oil all day long like every pore is its own little oil rig. This is the only thing I have found that actually makes a difference. Like WOW I couldn’t believe how controlled the oil was. And for those who complained about it being gritty- you have to put a dime or nickel size amount on your fingertips, and lightly slap it on all over your face (DONT SMEAR IT LIKE LOTION). There will be little grits, but let it dry a min and then gently brush any of the grits that are still on your face, what you’re left with is total oil control, perfect matte face to work with. I just apply a lil concealer and powder and I'm good to go all day. I can’t believe it, this stuff has changed my life. I literally gasped when I looked in the mirror hrs after first applying it, matte!!!!! That word isn't in my vocabulary, but it is now!! May 23, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great, but will cause breakouts This primer works well and will help your makeup last all day. It works great on oily skin and lasted for a good 10 hours before shine started to show up on my forehead. But every time I use it I always break out the next day. I have super sensitive skin and this always seems to clog my pores. Without fail the next day I will have a breakout somewhere on my face. Mar 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful face primer for oily areas I have tried numerous mattifiers and primers over the years. I have a very oily t-zone and nothing seems to work. This product does a great job keeping my skin from looking shiny. By mid day, I usually dab with an oil blotting sheet and my makeup still looks fresh. A little goes a long way so definitely a great value for the price. Feb 7, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent I normally do not write reviews but this product is EXCELLENT. I have purchased expensive primers from the major beauty lines and NONE have worked as good as this. This is the BEST primer I have ever used. I have an oily T zone and it controls this all day. ALL DAY!!!! Nov 2, 2015
