I’ve seen a ton of rave reviews for this so I thought I’d try it out. When you have really oily skin, anything that says it’s matte and keeps the shine away, you’re willing to try. Plus it was only $10 at Target so I thought why not? When I put it on, it has these grainy things in it. I wasn’t sure if it was from the “rice formula” they use or what, but I didn’t like that. I also didn’t think it lasted very long. I still had to powder my t zone just as much as if i was using a regular primer. My personal opinion, it’s not that great. But there have been others that have used it with great results. Maybe I just got a bad tube, I don’t know, but I’m not willing to buy another one to find out.

I was super excited to try this out - when you have oily skin, anything that promises to keep your makeup matte and not shiney all day is worth a shot! Upon application I found that the consistancy was very grainy (not something I want under my foundation). As the day went on, I felt that my pores were too clogged, I felt very oily, and had to blot more often than usual. I stopped using this primer before it could cause a breakout.

So i suffer from super oily skin , always :/ and i decoded to try this . First time i applied it it seemed like it had done the job . Days after using this the oil control didnt last too long . And if it does its just a little . It wasnt expensive so it was worth the try

I love this primer! Neutrogena always kills it! This primer is grainy and made with rice protein. Great for oily or combination skin! I love this primer so much it also smells tropical or like mangos! Please go get yourself this.

I did not really like the texture when applying. I actually feel like this product made my face break out and had a very oily effect to it. Did not feel as if it hydrated my face at all. I would not recommend this product.

Great primer. It really fills in your pores and creates a nice even and smooth surface to apply your foundation. Helps for my makeup to not look cakey and dry and makes it super easy to apply the foundation.

Neutrogena is usually my go-to brand for makeup products going directly on my skin, below the powder level. I was not thrilled with this primer. I live in a very humid climate, and it gets pilly and uneven with any amount of sweat. It didn’t make my skin feel smooth or look polished beneath my makeup. I gave it two stars because it did diminish shine.

I've used this for years! It works really well and does a great job on the skin! It's good on the skin and is very easy to apply. It's very long lasting! A little goes a long way with this. If you have oily skin and are looking for a primer, this is great!

I have been using this primer to control the oil and shine on my face. If I don't, my makeup melts off by noon. Even with this product, several touch-ups are necessary thought out the day. Has anyone found a better primer for EXTREMELY oily skin?

Does this really control your oily skin? I was looking for a primer that will make my face matte.
Is this primer good to stay mate?
