Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It works! I hardly ever write a review, but I had to for Neutrogena Shine Control Primer. Simply put: it works, exceedingly well for this person who has oily T zone skin. A little goes a long way - you don't have to put a ton on to get amazing results. I got 12 hours of non-oily skin... in 90 degree heat! It literally had me shocked - I was checking in the mirror expecting my foundation to have melted away - nope! Oh yeah, I'll be buying this for life. Thanks so much Neutrogena! ☺ May 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing!!!! Ok before I even say anything, I have to let you (the reader) know about my skin. My skin is extremely dry in the morning and starting noon, it is so shiny and oily you could put me in the sun and make French fries. Using a powder to control the shine just made the brush oily. I litrerally had to dab my face with paper towells at a certain time of day. I had bought all the non oily facial creams I had encountered. But this Is the kind of product you just have to experience to believe. the first week, I would still feel self conscious and try to sneak into the ladies room to dab my face and sure enough I haven't had to. Now I go on about my day with make up on without a care in the world. My make up lasts and my face keeps looking fresh. Thank you neutrogena (gee I sound like an infomercial! Lol but it's true!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product, but made my skin break out. I have been using this product for about 1 month and it has made me break out. I have smoother, less shiny skin, but I cannot go without makeup now, due to the outbreaks on my face. Great product for some, but it did not work for me. Apr 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Product I've Used for Oily Skin! I have extremely oily skin, even though I am older My pores are also very large. This product works great to keep my face oil free the whole day! It shrinks my pores and gives my skin a nice matte finish, something I thought I would never have. I have tried so many products over the years and have finally found one that works at a great price! My search is over! Apr 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No more oily skin! This product is AMAZING! I have extremely oily skin and this product works wonders. I use it under my tinted moisturizer. I also use the neutrogena moisturizer for combination skin and the neutrogena shine control face cleanser. If you have oily skin you have to give this a try! Jan 26, 2015

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by I wanted my foundation to look less shiny I bought this product a while ago maybe like at the middle or end of October and been using it for a while until, I noticed that my face was breaking out to it. I actually never used a primer before and wanted to give one a try but now I will not use one again because of how my skin reacted to it. I just set my foundation with powder and that makes my face less shiny also. I think I am going to skip the primer and just cleanse, moisturize and apply my makeup after those steps from now on.
