Rated 3 out of 5Â by NatashaOSDF Its not the best but it's okay
It works for a few hours so my face doesn't get shiny as quickly as it used to. Some 4 hours into the day it begins to give way and my face starts to feel and look a bit oily. After about 5 hours I need a light dusting of powder.
I will continue to use it because it does not clog up my pores or cause me to break-out (I suffer from acne). On balance, its not bad at all.
If you don't react to make-up and you do not suffer from acne, you have a wider range of make-up available to you and there are definitely more efficient oil control primers out there. MAC does some really good ones.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Laura170 Not as good as I expected
I previously used the illuminating primer and I am a big bare minerals fan, however because the illiminating one wasnt available I decided to try the oil control primer as I do have oily and spot prone skin.
To be honest It works well when you first put it on and drys instantly, but then by midday my skin is oily again. I found my skin to be less oily when using the illuminating primer!
I think I will be sticking to my usual in the future.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by sarat Good for oily skin
I had already tried the BareMinerals standard primer and found this very effective but also wanted something to combat oily skin so this is the best of both worlds.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by jo88 Amazing product
I have tried other primers and always return to this one, it is expensive but so worth the money! After trying a few various primers including Clinique this is defiantly the best one!
Leaves your skin hydrated, I have much less outbreaks and my problem prone skin is kept under control. Plus it ensures that your makeup lasts a lot longer.
Rated 1 out of 5 I would not recommend it to my friend. After applying it my skin felt tight, make up felt "funny" . Too expensive.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by daria Dissapointed!!
All the reviews were so good for this product but it didn't work for me! It's meant to stop excess oil so i though it would create a matte effect but when you put it on it makes your skin look really oily. It also made my skin feel tight. When i put my foundation on it started to crumble off in areas.
Really dissapointed as it's quite pricey and all the reviews were really good. Would not recommend!

I have the oiliest skin ever, and this produvt has stopped my face turning into a grease bowl by midday. A very happy lady now :D.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Nats85 no good
i bought this thinking it would be better than the original primer for my super oily & shiny skin, but it actually left my skin looking dry. it doesnt go on easily and ends up giving you a flaky look.
i'd stick to the reliable original primer in the future which is a good base for mineral and liquid foundations and keeps shine at bay for a lot longer than others i've tried.
