Hello Flawless Skin!

I recently developed adult acne and have to be careful about what I put on my face. I want to wear makeup to work but worry about clogging my pores and disrupting my existing acne. I used this sample and noticed a difference right away in not only how my skin felt, but looked even before I put the makeup on. The redness in my skin went away and it created a thin layer over my skin making the texture of my skin appear smoother. Taking in to consideration that it also has salicylic acid and antioxidant-rich ingredients, this is a win-win for my skin.

Awesome find!!

I've been trying to find a primer forever that would not break me out or clog my pores,especially with the weather and season changing. I actually used this primer during a baseball game and when ever I took pictures with my cousins, my face was not acting like a shiny mess. I also like the fact that it has salicylic acid because it is helping my skin fight my blemishes on my face. I also like the fact that it was light weight on my face and not heavy. Overall I am happy with this product.

Wow! It's amazing how much I dislike this! I love the Jouer brand and was really excited about this product, but I have now tried it in so many different ways (different amounts, different timing, 5 different foundations over the top, different application tools) and it's just awful on my skin (combination dry)! Almost every time I've used it, I've had to give up and take all the makeup off at the end because it ended up so splotchy! It would slip off of my oily areas, and it caked up on my dry spots! I'd use the exact same foundation with dr. brandt pores no more, and it looks flawless. So weird. I'll look into exchanging. . . .

This product is a great find for me! I struggle with that oily combo skin complexion. One minute dry, the next minute oily. I have used other matte primers, and they end up breaking my skin out.
This product when I use consistently, helps to keep my skin clearer, smoother, and it helps control the oil.

Love Jouer, but this was underwhelming
Purchased

I am a huge Jouer fan, which is why I purchased this primer when looking for a new primer. It has more of a serum-like texture than what I expected. And there is definitely a sort of chemical scent that I'm not a huge fan of. But I will say that the light texture and low salicylic percentage makes it usable for your whole face without worry. I will use the whole tube for sure, but definitely not planning on buying it again.

I have tried many primers and this one beats it all! I have sensitive and acne-prone skin, so the salicylic acid is an awesome bonus. It does not irritate my skin and makes it feel smooth beneath my make-up!

Calming....no , drying..yes

Let's just say, if you need to totally dry out your face, this will do the trick. My skin is acne prone and oily in T-zone, I tried this based on the description of mattifying and treating redness. So, I used small amount only on T-zone one day, and small amount all over my face the next. I am still recovering. I've never had super dry skin, but I now sympathize with those who do. I am on day 4 of trying to heal my angry, red, dry flakiness this caused my skin. It feels like a really bad sunburn and any lotion I try to use burns like fire on my cheeks and sides of nose.
So - yes, the product dries the skin, possibly it will dry up acne as well, but using as a primer, no I won't do that again. I was going to toss it, but may use as a spot treatment for acne. After looking at the back, it does say if redness or dryness occurs to discontinue use...so I don't see how this can "calm redness" in any way whatsoever.
