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.

Keeps makeup on all day. I wore this on a 90 degree day and my make up stayed in place, no streaks. The mattifying property keeps oily skin at bay.

I used this primer because it had salicylic acid to fight my acne but I don't think it necessarily did a good job in regards to setting my make up.

I didn't use this primer frequent enough to fall in love but I do think if I would have used it everyday I would have seen a difference in my skin.

This will last you a while because you only need a small amount for the whole face. I do mean small. If you use too much it will start clumping.
