elf+ Matte Oil-Control Primer is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Time Primer I wasn't sure about buying a primer since I had never really bought any before. This product feels smooth and easily to put on. The primer helps my foundation and other make-up in place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great primer that delivers This is a great primer for oily skin. It actually does what it says it will do, and foundation glides on beautifully over it. If you have moderately oily skin, this should be perfect for you. If you have extremely oily skin (like me) spray your face generously with the Oil Control Primer Mist, let dry, then use this on top. It's a double whammy that should keep your face matte all day. I give this product alone four stars, but the combination of these two is 5 stars, definitely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant oil control primer I have been using elf tone adjusting primer that I am very satisfied with, I have a very oily face and saw the oil control primer and had to try it. I ordered it about a month ago and fell in love with it. I just ordered. 2 more yesterday. It feels so silky and cool going on. And it still feels silky after I let it dry a few minutes before finishing my make-up. It keeps the oil under control and I don't have to keep dabbing my face with the oil control blotting. papers. My face felt as fresh when I got home from work as it did when I left for work. Great product, keep up the good work elf!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Work I bought this a few weeks ago, since I've been having serious issues with very oily skin. I've loved E.L.F products in the past, and have never had a complaint about them. However, this primer simply doesn't work for very oily skin. I used it on a clean face, free of already existing oils, and once it was on my skin, I could visibly SEE the oil soaking through it within 10 minutes of applying it. It did not mattify my skin and certainly did not act as a barrier between the oil from my skin and my foundation. I wish that this worked as advertised, and maybe it does for people with mild to moderately oily skin, but for those of us that have very oily skin, it's just not effective. Additionally, the feel of this product is very strange and actually felt oily when I applied it, before turning into a very smooth, yet still oily, consistency.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it. I bought this product a few weeks ago for the last stretch of summer and it does nothing it says for me. It dried out sensitive areas, the smell of tea tree oil is strong, and I'm shiny and oily within 4 hours. I'm not impressed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still oily Tried this only on the forehead because I have combination skin and my forehead is the most oily but it didn't work for me. Forehead was still oily after an hour. Could be that I live in a very hot and humid place but not too sure. Will save it for winter and try again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works, the bomb. I would always just use the E.L.F BB cream and I would look so oily, and shiny after a few hours. I got this hoping it would keep me from getting shiny. So far, I've been shine free and it's been 6.5 hours! I'm so psyched. Really glad this worked. The fragrance is not strong, or overly enticing but it's clean and its fresh and I'm so pleased. I will never not order this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! I had minimal expectations for this as I have extremely oily skin and there has never been a "mattifying" or "oil-control" lotion or primer that has really worked on me. But this one ACTUALLY WORKS. I am shook. It's August and I live in Texas, so my makeup is usually sliding off my face by 11am. Well, I put on my makeup today at 6:45 am and it's now almost 2pm and my nose has only just started getting a little shine. Love it, it is now my #1 favorite primer.
