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.

This primer really mattifies and keeps my face shine free for a good part of the day and I have seen some reduction in the redness of my acne spots when I use it.

I love this. I tried not using this primer once and it really shows that it helps me stay matte throughout the day. I say it is worth the splurge if you are looking for a good primer. Cover fx is a good brand :D

For me, this is a decent primer. I haven't seen a huge difference in using it, but the protection layer it provides is ok. It's very soft and smooth on the skin.

Bought this beacuse I have really oily skin and I was looking for something that matted me out. It did make my foundation last longer then usually but it didnt really look so matte.

Great primer that does not clog pores and keeps skin oil free. I love that it has salicylic acid that helps prevent blemishes. A little bit goes a long way so I definitely recommend getting this product!

I get shiny in the T-zone. I bought this to fight that battle, and so far I'm winning. Has great staying power, and prevents me from getting too shiny at the end of the day.

I have repurchased this about 5 times now and can't use anything else. Since using this any time I try any sample of any other primer I break out. This does a great job of not breaking me out. Goes on smooth and doesn't clog my pores.

This studs works amazing and even though the price is a little more on the expensive side it really does keep me from being oily all day and I have extremely oily skin. I'm not sure if this helped much with my acne but it keeps my skin matte
