The secret to Cover FX Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment is its ingredients. 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 product really does help cut down on shine. I tend to get oily midday but this product reduced the oil on my skin. It goes on smooth and helps my foundation blend more easily. It's a wonderful product which I will be buying again.

I have very oily and acne prone skin I was hoping it would do something for me. It was about as good as the average primer it reminded me of the smash box one. Overall extremely average it did as well as any regular primer would although expensive.

This is my all-time favorite primer. It’s sort of expensive so I buy the travel size but I love it so much. It makes my skin feel amazing and the anti-acne treatment actually works, sometimes I wear it alone instead of under makeup!

It did help with my pores and keeping my face matte. But my face still ended up really oily. So it wasn't very long lasting for me. I bought it at Sephora and it was a very small size. I would try it again since it worked for awhile.

I love this primer!
It has assisted with clearing up my acne. The color fx primer keeps my t zones matte longer than any other primer. My make up stay looking fresh longer during the day. This is my must have splurge makeup product.

I love this primer. It goes on super smooth and is gentle. My foundation lasts all day. While it hasn't completely rid me of acne, I do think it helps to some extent. It's a little less than what it was before I started using this.

This primer is a must. As I get old, my hormones change. I never had acne as a teen, but I do get a spot here and there now. Now only does it clear it up, but it helps cover it up. I also use this as a spot treatment at night during my skincare routine.

This primer didn't mattify my skin at all. It started looking very oily just a few hours after I applied my makeup. I doubt it has an anti-acne treatment as well because this made me break out like crazy, or I might have just been sensitive to the ingredients. Nonetheless, I wouldn't recommend this at all.
