What else you need to know:
The secret to Cover FX Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment is its ingredients. 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 isn’t tacky like most primers but I will say it takes a while to dry unless you want oily primer but overall it’s a great product it’s a 5/5 for me

This product is perfect to blur your pores and it has a tint to it that you can get away with just using this for those days when you want a more natural look!

I use this almost everyday and after a few weeks my acne has gotten so much better. It helps keep my skin from getting oily and keeps it smooth breakout free.

I love this primer. It is gentle on my skin and doesn't make my foundation slide off of my oily skin. I had sample from Sephora, but will definitely purchase.

Had to fight sweat, oil, and the rain when we were in DC and this held up VERY WELL, better than any product I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with before

Ah, if only the matte effect lasted. After about 2 hours max, I look like I've been dipped in chicken grease. I did finish the tube, but did not repurchase.

I got a sample of this from Sephora and I'm not really noticing any changes. I don't know if I'm using too little or what but I saw no mattifying happening.

So I’m looking for a new primer to try. I’m currently using cover fx mattifying primer, but I would like something new to try to mix it up a bit. Any recommendations for a good primer? 🤗💁
