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 love this primer so much. I have found that it tends to last for a while, and I've noticed the over times it seemed to help with my acne scars on the sides of my face! I will continue to repurchase it.

I saw this as deluxe offer on Sephora and used my points to try it out. I was a little worried if it had any silicone cause my skin is oily and acne prone so I decided to try it out for a night out on vacation. It worked beautifully with my bbcream cushion compact and some powder on top. But the next day I used a different bbcream since I was more tan and I was a greaseball. So I think it depends on what you put ontop of it if it helps or not. But great thing is that I still haven't broken out even though it feels like it has some silica in there. 50/50 about buying the full version

A little goes a long way!!
Got this at ulta has a matte finish but only if applied in a small amount! Lasts all day!
Didn’t really help with my break out but didn’t make it worse so I’m not mad about it 💕🤷🏼‍♀️

Not good for sensitive skin ! I got a sample of this and I won't buy the actual thing. I have combination skin and it really made the crease of my nose itch cause it's so drying. Also doesn't work well with a matte foundation.

I’ve tried it works pr try greats. It sits on my foundations well. Cons are that sometimes it makes my skin look oily, and yes it does hide my pores pretty well , very bendable too which is great

Got this as a sample from Sephora but it worked pretty well. I’ll buy it next time! I don’t really have acne only when it’s my time of the month but I do have oily skin so it works for it! I like it

This is supposed to be mattifying, it wasn't at all. My face was shiny after I applied it. My pores were still visible and it didn't last long at all I had to touch us my shiny spots a million times
