Willowbark extract, naturally containing salicylic acid, provides gentle exfoliation to clarify the skin and reduce sebum buildup and support the body’s natural cell renewal process. Ancient African tree bark extract assists with minimizing pore size, shine, sebum, and inflammatory acne, while a natural fruit acid complex of bilberry, sugar maple, lemon, sugar cane, and orange alpha-hydroxy acids gently exfoliates and supports the body’s natural cell renewal process to unclog pores and allow drainage. Vitamins F, C, and E protect the skin, soothe inflammation, and reduce redness while they support protecting against premature skin aging. Ancient African tree bark extract derived from the chamomile plant reduces redness and inflammation. Vitamin F, esters, squalene, and hyaluronic acid nourish and moisturize the skin.

Hands down the best primer I've ever used. It lasts all day and keeps my face nice and matte. I have combination skin & it works like a dream. Can't say enough good things! Definitely recommend to others who have oily & sensitive skin.

This is the perfect primer for acne-prone areas. Instead of just covering it up, this Cover FX Primer helps treat pimples. Plus, my concealer applies so much more smoothly over this primer! Great value.

Most silicon reeling primers clog my bores and make me break out but this product does the opposite. I swear it actually calms my skin! Makes makeup go on smooth as satin. Can't imagine my life without it. Just be careful you close it after use because it will dry out!

This primer feels nice on the skin and seems to be a pretty good in keeping the shine. I still have to blot my face once in the afternoon as I do have oily combination skin. The anti acne property is a nice plus for this primer.

I like this primer it keeps my skin matte and it helps hide my pores somewhat. It has a spf to protect from sun. It helps with my breakouts and keeps my makeup in place. I would by it again.

Feels really nice on the skin and did make my foundation look matte. However I wouldn't say this product made my makeup last longer. It did make the foundation glide on smoothly, but I probably wouldn't buy this product again

LOVE this primer. Helps prevent breakouts. Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin either. Makes my foundation last all day! It does hide some pores but I have used primers that def help pores. It is a bit pricey but worth it.

I thought I would like this primer, especially because it has an acne treatment in it. However I was very wrong. It is very slimy and doesn’t sink into the skin very well. If you have very oily skin, I would stay away from this product.
