Birchbox Breakdown

Oily skin can leave you with a face is full of shine—and not the good, fresh and dewy kind. To keep grease under control, we reach for Cover FX Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment. The vegan formula keeps shine at bay and boosts your foundation’s staying power thanks to its magic ingredient: Ancient African Tree Bark Extract. The natural powerhouse minimizes the appearance of pores, shine and inflammatory acne, while vitamins F, C, and E reduce redness and protect skin against premature aging. This primer works well for normal to oily or acne-prone skin.

How to Use

Using your fingers or a makeup brush, apply a small amount of primer to clean skin alone or under your regular makeup. It can also be used as a spot treatment for occasional breakouts.

Mattifying Primer

I first tried a sample of this at Sephora and I remember that I felt like I could walk through the Sahara Desert without getting oily but since I got the full size I don't feel the same way about it. It is an amazing product but I am sure there are other primers that could keep me more matte.

Airbrushed finish!

This primer is perfect for my oily skin! I like that it's a primer with help for breakouts. I mix it with my tinted moisturizer and it creates the most beautiful matte finish. Like an airbrush look! Stays matte for a long time! I use blotting tissues for quick touch-up but not often.

This probably the worst primer I've used in a long time... Or ever. Yeah worst primer I've ever used in my life.

Pretty good

I get excessively oily skin in gross humid weather so finding something to tame that is a serious hunt. This worked pretty well this summer. I ended up buying 2 of them and am finishing them up. My only complaint is that the it does come out a little thick. Luckily it doesn't feel that way on my face and it kept the shine a tad longer than usual, however nothing remarkable, I got better results from the one made with chamomile.

So-so for combination skin

I have acne-prone, combination skin and was hoping this would help reduce my T-zone shine, which it did, but my skin seemed to break out while using it.
