Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommend as a primer Works great as a primer, similar to several other higher-end balm primers I've tried, but it's easier to apply and stays in place just as well. I apply with a foundation sponge. I really like it with the ELF yellow corrective powder on top of this balm (to correct my redness) followed by mineral foundation (ELF, Why can't I get that here any more??) and it looks quite natural. Without the balm my pores are quite visible and the balm also helps the yellow powder stick to freshly washed skin. Sorry, I have not tried this balm on top of my foundation and I can't really comment on the "mattifying" claim - my skin is combo oily and I apply finishing powder periodically with all products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from amount of product in compact I really liked this product. It was much easier to apply, and the results were so much better, than Ulta's brand of a similar matte balm primer. Elf's balm kept me oil free and preserved my foundation all day and into the night. I used it on my very oily T-zone with the enclosed sponge. If/when the sponge became soiled, I just replaced it with similar sponges of the same size, available at the local dollar store. I didn't consider that a problem, just my preference. I'll definitely keep purchasing Elf's mattifying balm. My only complaint is the small amount of balm in the compact, which is definitely an inconvenience. Please come up with a container holding up to 3 times the product. I realize that might make it more expensive, but it would be worth it to me. Thanks very much.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't Work for Me I really wanted to like this, I did. I've been trying to find a product that will keep the oil on my face at bay, cause I have REALLY oily skin. I first got it because the reviews were good, and the ingredients weren't bad. I've used over half of it, and I still don't really like it. It does make you matte and minimize the look of your pores, but the effect only lasts a couple hours on me, tops. After that I'm back to being a greasy mess. The one okay thing is that it didn't break me out, which I'm always cautious of. Also, the packaging isn't the best. I've attached photos so you can see, but before you chalk it up to being too rough with it, I'm very careful with my stuff, and most of the time it was sitting on top of my desk. I've taken it on the go less than 5 times, but it still broke. It could just be the one I got but just a heads up. I do think it could work for someone else, but it just didn't for me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! I have combination skin with a very oily t-zone. This product has a very lightweight formula and keeps me matte for at least 8 hours. It seems very greasy when your feel it, but patting it into the skin makes you instantly matte. Love this product!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Threw it away I was trying to go cheap and find an alternative to another Mattifying balm I like. This product was a softer consistency and did nothing to make my skin Matte. It just added a slimey layer to my face. I threw it away. Don't buy if you have used a higher end product, you get what you pay for. High end products and even Ulta also take returns if your u satisfied so it's less of a risk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The absolute best thing! It was amazing! For someone who has oily skin, this held my make-up in place as well as keep the oiliness to a minimum. Sadly my dogs ate mine but I will be ordering again. It's worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Once I changed the way I applied it I FELL in love I bought this about 2 months ago, and at firstI was just NOT digging it. After I put my serums, and moisterizer on, let them soak in I took the included pad and wiped, dabbed it on, it went on very heavy and crumbly. It DID keep my T zone shine free all day though. A friend suggested that I get the sponge nice and wet, squeeze out excess and then swipe and apply. OH the wonderful change that has made. Now it glides on easily, without being to heavy, or cakey crumbly. I am basically using it as a primer, and it keeps my foundation budge free all day without getting shiny. So, maybe this will help others to try application with a damp sponge. When it runs out, I will be ordering again. As far as using it as a primer, I only use in my T zone, which is the only place I ever used or needed primer, and I like it for this purpose better than the other ELF primers I have tried. (like just about every one) You can't beat the price either. I have fair, sensitive combination skin. This just really works for me. Now that I am applying it differently.
