I was skeptical at first...thinking the last thing I need for oil/shine control is another tinted moisturizer on top of my make up. But I was proven wrong!
This little tube is magic. I used it a couple of hours after applying my make up to "freshen up" and it did just that. It took away any shine and actually made my skin seem brighter.
I only applied it on the shiny spots ("t" zone) and a little goes a long way.
This is a must have for any make up bag!
I have always been skeptical about products like this but it worked so well on my skin. I tried using it before and after my foundation and it worked well both times! I wasn't crazy about the scent but I would recommend for people with oily skin.
I've tried other pore minimizers but this one really does wonders! Works well as a primer too. Will definitely be purchasing after the sample is done
This was my first time using this fabulous product... I'm obsessed!!! It does exactly what it says it's going to do and has extreme, long lasting mattifying power!
chalky with chemical smell
This does cover up pores, but has a chalky texture that was difficult to hide and there was a strong chemical smell
I loved the texture and feel of this product on my face. It really did mattify my face, instantly make my pores look less noticeable. Obviously, my pores didn't disappear, so don't expect it to do that, but expect your pores to be less noticeable and your skin to be smoother feeling.
Makes my skin look and feel super smooth! Wear it under my foundation for a flawless look. Definitely ordering the full size.
I found that it did not help with my oil control and made my face feel like my skin could not breathe. I did not use all of the sample. I have oily, acne prone skin.
Feel good, Look Good
I felt that when I first used this product on my face it did not feel sticky and I felt my skin just evened out and felt good. It lasted me through out the whole day and my skin looked great through out the whole day. A definite investment for those long days filled meetings!
Awesome product...but a little spendy
I received a full-sized sample of this primer in my Birchbox, and I really love it.
It's very, very lightly tinted and applies very smoothly. It makes skin matte, conceals pores, and keeps my skin from getting oily throughout the day. I've tried all kinds of primers--Makeup Forever, Mac, Benefit, Tarte--and this is easily a favorite.
It does have a strong tea-tree oil smell initially because, uh, it contains tea-tree oil. And it's a tad (okay, more than a tad) expensive for a tube. Ouch.
