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.

I got this as a sample to start with and really liked it so I bought the full size! It has a matte finish which really helped when my skin is looking oily (mainly in the summertime!). I liked this product so much that I bought their illuminating primer as well

Pretty good primer if you aren't using a full coverage foundation. It made my skin look patchy and my foundation like split apart. It does have a matte finish. I would recommend getting s sample and asking what types of foundations work best with it before purchasing the full thing.

So far, this is the only primer that's kept me matte. And I don't mean 12 hours, but it keeps me fully matte for a good 8-9 hours. Would highly recommend to anyone with oily skin. It hasn't given me dry skin or made me break out.

This stuff is awesome! It feels so smoothr when you apply it, and I like that it helps keep acne in check. The price point is a bit of a turn off for me though.

Nice primer a bit pricey for me though as think there are other primers that do the same for less money. A matte finish that stops acne however I don’t have that problem so I cannot comment on that part.

this product helps keep your makeup on all day without budging.the anti-acne treatment helps to stop you from breaking out if you're prone to breakouts (which I am). this is definitely a lifesaver and a go-to product of mine. would recommend this to anyone, especially if you have acne.

Really good for problematic skin and breakouts. I don't use this every day as it can dry my skin out but really treats breakouts well when I have them. It gives a really nice matte finish
