I am 52 years old and my face always looks like an oil slick. It seems to get worse the older I get. I have tried several other brands. They seemed to work for about an hour - then the oil slick returns. I decided to try this primer. When I first got home I squeezed a bit onto my finger, 'uh, oh" it felt greasy, I tried a bit on my face, instantly noticed a change on my nose. Looked matte. Used it over weekend, seemed to work well. The true test would be Monday morning at work. Usually by 10 am the oil slick is back. Not this time - at lunch time I still looked matte. At four, still looked matte. What I like is I lost the oil but my face has a healthy glow. This stuff is AMAZING!!!
I’m glad this primer worked for others but it just did not work for me. After walking to the store from the parking lot my face looked like an oil slick when I looked in the bathroom mirror. It did nothing to blur or minimize my pores.

This is fabulous! I bought it on sale hoping I would like it, and I love it! It doesn’t reduce redness as much as I would like, but it is very light, not sticky, and keeps my makeup in place for hours! I will keep buying!
I'm new to makeup and a friend recommended this brand / product to me. It works so well for me! It doesn't dry my face out or cause my foundation to look funny after a while of wearing. It goes on smooth and feels nice on my skin, not too oily or drying like some others. It also hasn't made me break out, so that's a win.
I really like this primer. It’s the first and only one that I reach for. My face is a little dry sometimes so i purchased the blur + illuminate. My skin was glowing. I looked amazing. My family also noticed how different my skin looked with/without the primer. I’ll be trying the primer+ base next!
