Blemish Control Face Primer- Large is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I've been using it for a year or more. I'm really bad at time frames. However, my only complaint is it needs to be a really full size for a daily use. Also don't like the new style bottle liked the silver one but all that matters is the product that goes on my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, but Doesn't Work for Everyone My skin has never reacted negatively to this product and has helped prevent lots of breakouts. However, if you have sensitive or dry skin, do not use this product, or at least don't use it as a moisturizer. It contains a lemon extract which can be damaging to those with sensitive skin. It also contains salicylic acid, a great ingredient for treating acne, but it can be overly stripping if you have dry skin. But, if you're like me and have normal/oily skin that is prone to acne and is not sensitive, this product works incredibly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical stuff I’ve been using this for about 2 months and I have no idea what is in here but it’s working. I used to have breakouts very often and it gets worse around that time of the month. But this primer OMGGGGG it’s amazing. It keeps my skin clear and smooth. I always tell people that this is what I use to keep my skin clear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been LOVING this for Summer! I have been using this every time I wear makeup and I absolutely LOVE it. During the Summer because my pores are more open from sweating, I usually have a breakouts. I bought this and the Putty Primer with salicylic acid and they work great together. I believe this was actually has more salicylic acid than the putty. I think this one is a 2% and the other is around 1.5 or 1.6 something.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Left my make up flaking and peeling off :( I had really high hopes for this product as I thought I could kill two birds with one stone by priming and getting acne treatment in to prevent break outs that might occur from clogged pores. However, this doesn't feel very light on my skin and is quite drying (considering it has salicylic acid, I don't know why I was surprised). I do have oily skin, but in putting this atop my usual moisturizer and under my make-up, it did flake and looked really weird up close (like I was peeling). Unfortunately, I don't recommend it and think I'll just stay clear of using "acne treatment" primers from now on. I really do like E.L.F's skincare products (especially bubble masks and essence), so I'd recommend just sticking to that than trying to do a "2 in 1" like I did.

When I use this stuff, it seems to crack on my face? It starts to peel off my face almost like dry skin. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Please be sure that you are only using one pump per application and blending well for best results.

I have combination and acne prone skin, would this work for me?

Asked by: Sydney224
yes, I have combination skin with dry patches and an oily T-zone and I used to have breakouts alot, this is the only primer I use and I have noticed a huge difference. I cleanse my face, apply moisturiser and then this primer. My foundation looks great and the primer helps keep it all day. so far I have had very few breakouts since I have added this into my skin care routine.

Hi, I was wonder about this product, how much is inside, for example how many mL or what not, cause I saw that this was the larger one and I know there was a smaller one, but I can't find how much is actually in the bottle

Asked by: Miranda4987
This larger bottle has about 1.01 oz in it, where as the smaller bottle has around .47 oz in it. It's in the ingredients tab.

Would you recommend this product to someone with skin on the drier side?

Asked by: leah joe
Its general use is to minimise acne and redness, so I would recommened the hydrating face primer as opposed to the blemish control primer.

Will this disrupt the SPF under the primer? Thank you! Is there a dermatologically supported response to this question?
