Get your eager little fingers away from that zit—attacking your skin isn’t going to make unsightly acne go away (in fact, it’ll make it worse). Give your stressed complexion a break with Jouer’s powerful yet lightweight primer. Its mattifying formula soothes and treats irritated breakouts with a unique blend of salicylic acid and antioxidant-rich ingredients. Just a thin layer will help heal blemishes, calm redness, and refine pores, providing a smooth, even canvas for foundation and concealer.

Works, but doesn't seem especially special. Not sure about the anti-blemish bit.

Not that mattifying
Sampled

I found this product didn't keep me as matte as other products (lancome pore minimizing base)

Nothing to get too excited over
Sampled

I have been using this since it came. It's ok, not the best I've tried but not the worst. I'm glad I got a chance to try it but I don't think I'll purchase it.

Didn't last all-day

My combo skin seemed to be too much for this product by the end of the day. The mattifying didn't meet expectation.

Jouer Anti-Blemish Matte Primer
Sampled

I felt that Jouer Anti-Blemish Matte Primer left my face a bit on the dry side, and that's that I had used facial moisturizer before hand. This brand was not for me.

The jury is out

I want to like this product... It goes on smoothly and makes my skin feel good before applying makeup. I did notice some new breakouts on my forehead, so I'm not sure if it's from this product, or something else.

Seems like a decent product
Sampled

I like this brand a lot! The primer has a matt finish which I like. However, I'm not too sure how I feel about wearing a salicylic acid based product as part of my make up routine only because in the past salicylic acid had made my sensitive skin break out.

Didn't love it
Sampled

I'm not a regular primer user, so maybe that swayed my opinion of this, but I didn't love it. I was excited to receive this sample as I'm almost 30 but still have acne... So I'm constantly looking for good coverage that won't lead to more acne. I didn't notice any change in my skin. It felt a little... greasy, I want to say? My foundation didn't go on top of this as well as it does on just my cleaned skin.

Disappointing
Sampled

Until fairly recently, I've suffered from on and off acne. For whatever reason, my skin has been pretty clear the last few months... Until I used this primer. I was originally excited to see that it was anti-blemish (I still had an occasional spot), but it completely made me break out. I was really sad because it's an otherwise great primer.
