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 used this for a long time and I loved it. You can get it at sephora, which may be pricey but worth it. My acne not only stopped growing. But started to go away little by little. You still will need to wash your face but it will work if you use it when you wear makeup

I got this at the Sephora check-out in that ever dangerous wrap-around for a trip I was taking. I'm impressed by the product, a little goes a long way and it does help smooth out the application of my foundation. Not sure I'd by again but might try the anti-aging one next time.

I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS! I have oily and acne prone skin in my T-zone, which gives me a whole plethora of problems. Without a primer, my makeup slides off my face and I get so greasy, but this product totally does the trick, and it helps to calm my breakouts!!! It's a little pricey, but I totally recommend!

Y'all I just tried this yesterday and I'm in love. It's so easy to apply and blend and feels so silky and smooth on skin. I don't think this has any sun protection but it's so mattifying and doesn't dry skin out at all!

This primer is honestly worth buying, it surprisingly cleared up some troubled spots I had and it leaves a beautiful finish although I did notice my face oily after a couple hours so that's the downside but that's nothing some setting powder or spray won't fix

I found this primer to be completely useless. It didn't help my foundation apply smoothly, nor did it benefit me in the oil control department. I definitely do not feel that it lives up to it's claim. Luckily, I only purchased a travel size tube from Sephora.
