Rated 4 out of 5 by from Felt oily half the time I have to figure out which products I use that make this feel super oily and slippery on me. Sometimes it instantly takes away any shine and other times it makes me shinier. I don't think it's totally this primer, but I have combo skin, and silicone primers tend to be gross-feeling on my face. I have a different skincare routine almost every day because I use what I feel my face needs that day, so it's hard to pinpoint what this primer is not working with. When it does work, it works quick and is the definition of mattifying haha. It has a faint tea tree smell too, but not like tea tree most people are used to smelling-this is what actual tea tree smells like so that makes me think these products actually have higher concentrations of the beneficial ingredients!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PLEASE don’t discontinue this!!! After years of try primer after primer that say they control oil, I finally found one that actually does it. My makeup is on for 10-12 hours a day and even after exercising my foundation is still PERFECT!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked but not as well as I hoped. I have used this products twice and it does a great job of keeping my oils down on my cheeks and forehead but my nose is still very oily. Didn’t blur my pores but for $10 I am not really mad about it. I’ll stick to the matte putty primer, just wanted to try this one out. Will use until bottle is done but most likely won’t buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Primer This primer is great for oily skin! This worked better for me than the pore less putty primer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I have been one to only want to put on makeup with as little steps as possible. However, when I googled how to stop creasing primer was the answer in every post and video. I knew about pore-fessional but then I saw a review on this, and as a person with acne prone skin the product with the clay and tea tree oil was a no-brainer. It does not smell strong at all. I don't even feel it really has a smell. This is coming from a person who has a sensitive nose and has used pure tea tree oil before. Also, believe me and reviews when we say a little goes a long way. I thought it was trash the first time I used it, but I had used far too much. The next time I only used two little dots and it was MAGIC. I have combo skin and my forehead, temples, and high cheek are get SUPER oily. Not with this on. I even use it when I don't wear makeup. The change to your skin is very visible, I love it. It's also not drying. I especially use it on my smile lines which are on the dry part of my face, and I was afraid it would cause dry spots or feel tight but it doesn't.

How does this compare to the Poreless Putty Primer- is it thinner, more mattifying and oil absorbing, and perform better on oily skin?

The consistency is thinner and it is specifically formulated to help control oil and mattify.

Does this product contain retinol in any form? I'm looking for a mattifying primer that will be safe during pregnancy. I have to avoid salicylic acid (which this does not have - yay!) and any kind of retinol. This looks safe but I want to be sure! Thanks!

Can I use this on the eye area?
