If you're allergic to benzoyl peroxide DO NOT USE THIS

      Originally bought this thinking it was a color correcting primer but figured I could use it after not finding benzoyl peroxide on the ingredients list (allergic to BP). I applied it to my arms after a couple random breakouts during the month. It made it even WORSE and a nearly identical reaction I had when I used proactiv and a couple other brands.

      Bought this product to try as I always broke out after putting makeup on. It works amazingly and I can even say it has controlled my acne. I love this product!

        I have sensitive skin and because of that I didn't really use many products for acne. I break out a lot on my forehead and using this for only about a week made a huge difference! It didn't dry out my face or have any burning sensation! I wouldn't recommend using this for a face primer under foundation but more as a moisturizer for acne after you wash your face. It does wonders!

        Helped my skin!

        Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Blemish Control Primer:

        I have oily/combination skin and this was great. It wasn't the best primer, but I incorporated it into my skincare routine and it did wonders for long term clearing up places I sometimes get acne. There are expensive serums that do the same this did for me. However, as I primer, I wouldn't choose any of the elf ones, honestly. Otherwise, its a good product if you have oily skin and you want something light but moisturizing on your skin before you go in with primer and makeup

          I loved the price of this so I really wanted it to be great; however, it broke me out. I wouldn't recommend this if you have less than great skin or sensitive skin.

          Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Blemish Control Primer:

          Bought this product a few months ago as I have reasonably red cheeks that other primers and bb/cc creams (I'm not a massive fan of foundation) don't cover. This product however has been excellent, applies very well (although when first applied has a slight oily sheen that goes away after a few minutes) and hides my cheeks. Lasts a long time as well so worth the money!

          Is this different now?

          Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Blemish Control Primer:

          I bought this product a couple of months ago and felt the texture was comparable to Smashboxs photo finish. I just bought it again and it's now like a cream. Was the formula changed? Or did I pick up a different primer? I'm pretty sure I purchased this one as it was highly recommended to me and I really did like it the 1st time I picked it up.

          Not a Great Primer

          By sassyshelby

          from SC

          Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Blemish Control Primer:

          However it is a good moisturizer. That's exactly what it feels like and goes on like. The directions actually call it a medication a suggest using it one to three times a day after cleansing your skin. I like it as a moisturizer, but not a primer. That's why I'm giving it only two stars; it's not the product it says it is. There's not a lot of product, but it's an inexpensive product.

          My queens, read through and you will 100% understand!
          Straight up- the product is excellent. I love it. I would have given elf and this primer my loyalty for life, bought 398 cases of it, and put a ring on it, but the entire product turned out to be no better than a tinder date lying about his size. The bottle is the familiar size we're used to getting glorious primer in, HOWEVER, when I was surprised to discover I was running low, I opened her up and low and behold, the entire green part you see in the picture was empty plastic. I took it apart and found out the product itself is in a small portion of the cap. I'd been paying $17 for primer before this and thought that was expensive, but I've come to find YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR again! *cries*
          So, I'm sorry elf, but you have lost me on this one entirely! If you'd been honest from the beginning, I'd have accepted you, but a girl needs solid trust. I expect this kind of behavior from a man- NOT FROM MY MAKEUP!
          Bye, elfelicia!
