TEXT PLACEHOLDER : Best for normal to combination skin that isn’t too oily, this rather thick yet silky fragrance-free primer spreads easily over skin, improving its texture and enhancing makeup application, which is the whole point of using primer.
The issue this tube-packaged primer presents is that despite its name and claims, its oil-absorbing abilities are weak. In fact, oily areas won’t see the shine control last for long—expect to see oil showing through this primer (and your makeup) within an hour of applying. The finish, while exceptionally smooth, also tends to feel heavy over oily areas.
It’s not all doom and gloom, though: This primer can be a very good option if your skin isn’t oily; in fact, it provides enough hydration to be suitable for dry skin, especially if you pair it with a moisturizing foundation.
