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 absolutely cannot do without this primer. I'd figured I'd never find a primer that doesn't make me break out or give my skin some texture. This primer changed the game and keeps my makeup on all day.

I'm giving this product a 4 because I don't have acne so I can't attest to how it works as an anti-acne treatment. Otherwise, it's very light, spreads well, allows me to start my day with a nice matte look.

I suffer from acne so I try products that may help. I got s sample of this and used it a week or so. I didn't see a big difference there maybe I needed to use it longer to see results. It did mattify my face as most matte primers do but I used it based on the acne treatment. I may purchase and try longer.

Great primer! I like the formula of this product because it makes my makeup last a long time and treats my blemishes while I'm using it. It's a decent price considering the acne treatment properties in this. I definitely recommend this product to others!

I use this primer almost everyday. I don't really see a difference with it helping my acne but I don't think it really makes it worse. The primer is a clear gel like product and it feels a little weird when you first put it on your face but after it dries the feeling goes away. I think it definitely helps keep my foundation in place.

This is one of the best mattifying primers! It's a lightweight gel that absorbs quickly. It's not the thick, balmy oil control primer that acts like a liquid blotting paper but it did help tame my breakouts.

This is a great primer for teens who have acne and are new to makeup. I wish it had a bit more silicon to make your skin look a bit softer but other then that it's a great primer for people with problem skin

I use this product as a "spot treatment primer" when I have open acne sores. I smooth it over the spots and it's really helps to keep the foundation from getting in to the area throughout the day and causing it to come to a head again, instead of healing. It makes my make up so smooth and matte like I prefer! I will buy again.

This is a the best primer ever! I tired so many primers I am so glad I found my match. It can be 80 degrees outside and I am not oily at all ! I don't have to pat my face with a tissue like I usually do during the day! I would recommend this product to anyone who needs oil control.
