Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smells awful and doesn't stop oil I bought this more than a month ago and was so excited to try it out. Turns out it smells to high heaven-- honestly, it reminds me of burning rubber. Just awful. Add to that, I haven't noticed any differences in it keep my skin from getting oily. My cat hates the smell of it on me too and has ceased seeking attention from me if I put it on. To me, it's not worth the love I've lost with my cat by smelling like a dumpster fire.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oily Finish I am 62 but still have combo normal to oily skin. I use Elf's pore filling primer and spray this product over it. After foundation, setting powder and finishing spray, my skin does well for about 3 hours then becomes very oily. Much more so than if I had not used a primer, setting powder or a finishing spray. I will be throwing this product away. I do not recommend it for older, oily people.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good! This spray wears pretty good under foundation, although I don’t know if it really helps keep things matte. I actually like wearing it on my days off when I’m not wearing any makeup, makes me feel fresh & like my skin products are kinda sealed in. Warning: This spray is powerful!! definetely not a mist!!! Would never spray over makeup unless you want to get soaked lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saving Product! I apply this with my hands like a regular primer, and it keeps my oil at bay! Best results with the e.l.f. sheer setting powder!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from eah... I bought this hoping that it would keep my make up from melting off my face. I have very oily skin, unfortunately. I spray it on my face before and after my makeup. It helps a bit but it doesn't last long. I also kinda hate that the spray isn't a mist. It soaks my face. When I spray it on top of my foundation I have to pat it in so it doesn't leave streaks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn’t work for me Ive used this primer for a week straight now, and so far it’s made no difference in the oiliness of my face. I still have to blot almost immediately after i’m done applying my makeup, and many times throughout the day. I have sensitive and very oily skin and all this product did was cause breakouts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I gave four stars because it smells harshly of chemicals, nothing like coconut. But it works so well! Even though I have been wearing make up for 11 years, I'm new to really trying to make sure I look good and use good products. My face is very oily and I never used primers before and my make up was always looking awful half way the day or hot summer days would have my make up melting off. With this spray, my make up looks amazing all day long and doesn't look oily half way through the day anymore. If they can work on the scent then I can give it five stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OILY SKIN PEOPLE THIS WORKS Be mindful this is for people who need heavy duty oil control for their entire face. I have always had extremely oily acne prone skin. Now at 23 I’m oily, acne prone and very sweaty. I put this on after a pore filling primer then over my powdered foundation to set everything and it works like a dream. This is my face 6 hours into wear time in 95 degrees and 40% humidity at a concert sweating PROFUSELY. I got another 3 hours of wear time thanks to this spray and no cystic acne breakouts! Without this spray my foundation would be a broken up greasy mess. 10/10 recommend for sweaty oily makeup enthusiasts everywhere. My only criticism is that the mister really drenches your face, not at all a fine mist but adequately covers everything. Just be careful when spraying.

Can I use this as a setting spray as well, or just as a primer?

Asked by: JuliesaLynn
Just as a primer. If you sprayed this over your makeup it would probably ruin it in the long run. A "setting" spray (a spray to make makeup last longer) would need alcohol in the first 3-4 ingredients.

Could i use this and then on top apply my elf poreless face primer 

Asked by: Anonymous 123456
You could but I think it would be too heavy with both. What I like about this one is you don't feel like you have anything on your face but it works so well!

Is there another way to apply this other than spraying it onto your face? I've heard that the misters on the bottles that look like these are rather strong and do not provide a fine mist.

Asked by: Ri36
I use my hands to spread it out evenly and that works just fine for me. It's a great product and very light!

Does this really work? Because my skin is so oily for no reason and it ruins my makeup everydayyy

Asked by: Renn16
You can only find out if you buy it. Besides, everyone's skin is different. It may work wonders for someone else, but on the other hand it does no justice for you. It's not like you're spending 20+ dollars.
