Acne Fighting Putty Primer- 1.8% Salicylic Acid is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 86.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good works well as a primer.. not sure if it helps with acne but it keeps makeup in place and smooths skin. container is thinner than i expected, likewise with most elf products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well! Every monthly cycle I breakout on my face, neck, and chest. Ugh! I have spent decades battling this issue and I’m 43! So as I’m aging, I’m also needing to keep my skin more hydrated. Since I’ve been using this putty daily for a couple of months, I’m not breaking out anymore!!! It also doesn’t dry my skin out! I’ve tried so many things over the years and have more recently been looking for an ani-aging/anti-acne routine and this is definitely helping. I’m combining this Holy Hydration to get this effect. Love the combo and my skin has never been happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I'm on my second container, I love it very much. I have acne prone skin and this helps my skin stay hydrated and looking glowy. I love how it makes my skin look. It also helps me from touching my face (my skin gets dry/itchy and then I touch it) so I will be using this for as long as they sell it (and don't change the formula too much ;)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Primer, not sure if it actually helps skin I have very acne prone skin, and I started using this after discovering the poreless putty primer. I really like how this primer sits on my skin, but I'm not convinced it actually is helping my acne. I was hoping this would be like the Cover FX acne primer, but I would not compare the two.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't really help with acne IMO Have had this for awhile now and I can't say that it does much on the acne side of things, but still a pretty good primer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice I do really like this primer but I don't know if it actually does anything to improve how the makeup sits or how long it stays on. It seems to help with breakouts. I use a powder foundation and the primer seems to transfer to my powder brush.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent for a primer I bought this item because I saw that it was being advertised with salicylic acid. However, it doesn’t blur my pores and my makeup cracks around my T-zone with this primer. It’s not bad but not my favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best primer I have purchased the original putty primer twice and used them til empty. Thought I would try this acne fighting one to protect my skin from clogged pores. I literally just took a nap in a full face of makeup and everything is still in tact lol. Covers pores and wrinkles and it provides such a smooth base. Love this product

Is this product non-comedogenic?

Asked by: GARO
While our goal is to create gentle products, everyone is different and some may experience sensitivity to an ingredient or a combination of an ingredient and outside factors. Because we cannot predict how everyone may react, we do not claim that our cosmetics products are entirely non-comedogenic.

Does this go on before or after sunscreen? What about serums? Thank you

Asked by: TinyFox
We suggest that you apply the serum first, then the primer, and then your sunscreen product.
