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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pore-fessional Primer Dupe... Only Better!! I recieved the pore-fessional in a Boxy and wasn't impressed. This I bought this and was blown away. It feels and applies like the pore-fessional, but how the pore-fessional SHOULD be. And oil control? Yes, please! This stuff will keep my oil under control all day! Really, my holy grail on oily days. Hands down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer staple I wear mineral sunscreen in the summer, and even though my skin isn't particularly oily, I have a big problem with the sunscreen bunching up in the folds of my eyelids and sometimes around my nose. Powdering it didn't help, no prep beforehand or setting afterwards helped. This helps. I apply a tiny dab (not much in the bottle and don't want to freak out my combination, sensitive skin) and apply it around my nose and VERY CAREFULLY on the centre of my eyelids. If I have any oily blemishes, I'll use a tiny dab around that area. No creasing, no sliding, no clumping, and my eyeshadow has never looked better - it's an amazing eye primer, I just hope it's safe! Smells strong but fairly pleasant and not too overwhelming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from holy grail face primer- Never Discontinue !! I do not know why it has taken me so long to write this review lol. I actually stumbled across this a year or two ago in a local Walmart around the time the whole oil control collection dropped. I had a party I was going to that night and I was out of my usual, which was the original elf poreless primer. I was about to get that but then I saw the stand for this collection and thus this primer. I have combo skin and my t-zone gets super oily. While I do like the poreless primer, it doesn't do much for oil control. So I got this instead. BEST choice ever!!! It is clear (so no weird cast or flashback like I get from a lot of other matte primers), goes on easily, and leaves my skin so smooth and a little can go a long way. It even helped minimize my pores. I saw in the reviews that some people think it smells gross?? IDK why. It does have tea tree oil so thus it smells of that. I don't mind that at all.. actually I think the tea tree oil in this primer has helped my breakouts! This stuff truly helped keep my oils at bay! Even after sweating at that party my t zone still looked good! And even on normal days it has definitely helped prolong the wear time. Sometimes I even wear it without makeup. Such a great primer! Pleaseeee E.L.F NEVER discontinue this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oil Control All Day I bought this product hoping that it would help keep my oil under control, and it did, with this on the bottom of my makeup, then adding foundation and setting it with powder. It lasts all day, including sweating through a 5 hour shift at work. I love the formula, and it is so soothing on skin and it has a little bit of a pore filling aspect to it, and lets the foundation or concealer glide on perfectly!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smells Terrible! I was buying this product to make my skin look matte and smooth but it smells terrible. I does not even do it’s job. Very dissatisfied. Wish for a free refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Skin feels gross with it on I have very oily skin so I was excited to try this. It felt oily going on which I thought was odd considering it’s supposed to be oil controlling primer. It felt heavy and greasy on my face to the point I couldn’t even put my foundation over it that’s how gross it felt. Might work for less oily skin, but for very oily skin it’s best to skip this one.

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?
