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.

Very nice primer. It is not sticky and blends well. I do not have large pores so I did not notice. I do however need the Matte finish that would aid in acene control. I don't think it had sun protection. Yes, I would buy it again.

Can’t live without it sometimes I accidentally forget to put primer on when doing my face and my face just melts right off but with this my oil skin is matte for most of the day and by the end of the day I have a tad bit of shine but nothing compared to without it my skin is extremely oily and I can’t live without it

A really good primer! This helped keep my oil at bay and definitely kept me more matte throughout the day. I would recommend this for those with acne prone, oily skin, and this will be great it keeping you skin in good condition!

Favorite primer when I was suffering with cystic acne. It helps control oil which is something I really look for in a primer. It does a good job at holding foundation in place but there's still a bit movement throughout the day.

I give this primer a 4 because it did what it says it is going to do. It’s not good for dry skin. I didn’t see any reduction in acne but I usually don’t expect to. I would recommend this to people wanting to matte their look.

i didn’t notice anything particularly special about this when i first used it - it didn’t do any more or less than the average mattifying primer. my issue became the fact that it would sometimes pill up and cause my foundation to look AWFUL.

This primer helps hide the pores and makes the sling look like perfection. It does protect’s you from the sun since sometimes I use it without wearing any make up. I would love to recommend this products to others.
