I like this product but not mymfsvorite. I feel like to good for the price. But I have found better. I rather pay an extra dollar or two. To get the best product possible. It's very affordable will do the job when on a budget. I would buy it again on a budget

This is the first primer I have ever used and I purchased it because many people recommend it for oily skin. It keeps my skin from being oily about five hours in, but after that I start to see oil, but I may not be putting enough on so I'm not sure if it's my fault or it is actually the primer's quality

I tried this product about a month ago. I like the lightweight feel is has when applied to the skin. It doesn't feel very silicon-like as I know some primers do. It does help keep your makeup on but I personally prefer my smashbox photofinish primer. Although if you're looking for a more affordable option, I would say this is one of the best at the drugstore.

I use this product alongside the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder and the Stay Matte Foundation. I have been so pleased with how these three products work together to control shine throughout the day. My ridiculously oily skin often leaves me feeling like I look unprofessional, but since I found these products, I haven't had to worry that my shiny face is a distraction!

My face can get quite oily in the summer and I thought that I would give this matte primer a chance since I loved Rimmel's stay matte powder so much. It goes on very tacky and uneven which was disappointing. I would rather use a NYX primer over this any day.

I couldn't live without this primer. It keeps my face completely matte all day until I take off my makeup. It keeps my foundation and other makeup in place, and I have repurchased several times. There is not a lot of product in a package, but it does go a long way. I would definitely recommend this product.

I have very oily skin yet it can be dry at times. This stuff has been a life saver and a budget saver! My favorite matte primer from the drugstore for sure! Of course through out the day you are bound to get oily again so I always use a powder to set my face and a setting spray. Definitely worth the money!

This is the inexpensive primer I tend to go with for everyday wear. I am naturally fair so I don't have the problem of it making me look washed out that some people might have. It works great under my foundation and hides any flaws and makes my foundation stay longer.

I think this primer is really great. It definitely makes my foundation stay on much much longer than if I hadn't used it. It also smells kinda nice. A little goes a long way, just remember that ! I have super oily skin and I wouldn't trade this primer for any of the high end versions.

It has great texture and honestly does work. Its wonderful worn with or without makeup. I have oily skin so it helps. The only problem I had with it was that it made me break out terribly. I broke out everywhere and even places I don't usually get acne in. I don't have very sensitive skin but I don't think this is good for anyone with acne prone or sensitive skin.

Is this a good primer for oily combo skin?

I have really oily skin and it always looks shiny does the matte primer help reduce that shine and does it keep my make up from running? How much? And where can I find it

Did this break anyone else out? And does anyone know what is in it that might cause breakouts?
