Very shocked

I ordered this product about two weeks ago. It arrived in the mail very quickly and when I opened my package, I was actually very surprised by how much product I received. I was honestly expecting a smaller portion, but I am very pleased with the size.I've used it every single day for a little over a week now and I am in love. I have combination skin (mixture of dry patches and oily in my T-Zone) and this actually keeps my skin looking very smooth and matte. I also have sensitive skin. Switching to new products tend to break me out or cause redness on my cheeks, but I have had no negative side effects whatsoever. It is very smooth and silky feeling on my skin and it even helps fill in my pores some, which is a bonus. I find that my foundation stays on longer and looks more natural. I'm very pleased with this purchase and I will be repurchasing! « less

Love this!

I have combination skin and I love a matte finish so I was worried that the matte would make the more dry parts of my skin drier...but it definitely does not! I love this primer. It makes my skin feel super smooth and it's not as expensive as other high-end primers. The pump makes it easy to use the product and it makes your makeup last for a very long time! I love the way that it gives my skin a matte, yet satin-y finish. I use it on my clients as well!

So far so good

So far I really like this primer, at first it can feel heavy but once it dries it feels lightweight and good on my skin. I typically put a tinted moisturizer over the top of it, or foundation over it. It helps either of those to last all day, and at the end of the day my skin isn't oily and doesn't feel gross. I have sensitive skin that is acne prone and I haven't noticed this product to cause any acne or irritations.

Not your miracle matte

This product might be great if you don't *actually* have oily skin. The first time I bought it (during a cold, dry chicago winter) it worked *alright* since my face was super dry from the elements. By the time I repurchased in April it had already ceased to keep me matte (even for a few hours) but I didn't know what else to buy and I hoped that maybe the product had simply expired. Nope. The humidity isn't even close to being in full swing here but this isn't keeping me matte even for short amounts of time. This is a silicone based primer -- so it feels really smooth and silky going on -- but even though I paired it with a silicone based foundation (as is the general rule) it seems to be seperating the foundation and my face is a discoloured oil slick in no time --even with matte foundation, powder, and matte finishing spray. I'm bummed because I really liked the feel of this at first but there's no way it will hold up to the spring and summer months. I'm failing to find anything as good for oily skin as No7's discontinued matte primer.

The best!

I use the product with or without foundation. It's extremely silky and velvety on the skin. I have super oily skin and this is the only product that keeps me matte all day. I can even sweat and it stays on and keeps my make up in place. I will never go without this product again, I'm so happy I found it!

What is the best primer/foundation for oily skin? I need something to stick on and not slide off my t-zone mid day. Looking for medium/buildable coverage with long wear.
