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 received a sample of this in a make-up swap. I have slight rosacea and this primer helps to correct it. It is great for concealing dark spots as well. Lastly, it helps me to tame my oily skin!

Little goes a long way! Be careful or else it can do the opposite and make you more shiny! Fills in pores and makes skin feel so so smooth! The anti acne is a bonus, doesn't irritate skin.

This is my go to primer. It's non-irritating and it contains acne medication! With having oily skin, this primer does a great job balancing oil. It goes well with the Lancôme foundation and urban decay color correctors.

I have a deluxe size of the Mattifying primer& honestly it didn't help me at all. It didn't make my skin "matte" like it claims it's supposed too. I wouldn't recommend it.

Love this stuff! it keeps oil at bay!!!! I'm glad it has anti aging properties since I'll be 30 in a couple of weeks! It doesn't feel greasy and actually blurs my pores quite well!

So I have oily skin. And this just makes my face worse. It says matify. But I don't see how it was matt. It just made my face super oily. I'm glad I got a sample I will not buy this

I like anything that has acne medication in it. However I'm not too crazy about the texture of this once applied on the face. Make up seems to slide right off. It's too oily/gel like and doesn't adhere very well to the face. Especially if you're using foundation after you apply this.
