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.

This primer does a good job of mattifying my oil areas on my combo skin and holding the makeup in place on my nose, forehead, and chin. By the end of the day my face looks glowy but not overly oily so I am happy!

I have found this product to be great for spot treating blemishes or dry spots. I have combination skin and found that when I used it all over my face my liquid foundation would break

I recently received this in my boxycharm box and I really liked it. I would have not bought this so I am really glad I got to try it out. I really like the coverage it provides and how smooth it makes my skin.

I ended up getting this in my BOXYCHARM and was really excited to get it. It’s really easy to apply and wait about 2-3 minutes before applying foundation. It has a really good matte to it, i would buy again!

I don’t know I think I’ve been breaking out while using this actually and the formula is similar to smashbox only dryer and more difficult to apply. I do like how it covers all my pores though!

I did not like this. It felt too tacky and didn’t keep my makeup on all day. I did like the anti-acne treatment however and felt it was effective around my chin area. I would not recommend this to others!

Overall I really like this primer. It reminds me a little bit like the smashbox photo finish primer. It goes on smoothly and is definitely mattefying. My makeup looked great on top of this primer all day.
