    Purchased this on a whim because I really have trouble with breakouts. It's not as silky as other primers but it definitely helps with the oil and breakouts. I would definitely recommend me for others.

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

    So when I first got this, I thought that it was very light considering the size of it, but I didn't' let it get to me. It wasn't until I ran out of it after 1.5 weeks that I realized that there was a whole lot less inside the container than you think. Maybe a gram or two, which is fine except for the packaging suggests that there is a lot more product in it. This made me very mad, and although I loved the quality of this primer, I refuse to use it because of the false advertisement.

      My daughter has used several primers, from the very expensive to this one. She had sensitive acne prone skin and this primer has made a big difference. She loves it!!!

      I usually love all Elf products but this primer is not the best. It is very silky which causes you to feel it on your face all day. It does however hydrate, but it is too heavy.

        I have acne prone skin & this primer does the job. It's not some miracle worker that's going to zap away your zits, but it doesn't add any irritation or blemishes that I developed after using other primers. Apply with fingertips in tapping motions, it gets some slight stick, & holds my makeup day and night.

        Tea Tree Oil Melts Makeup

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

            I love the effects of tea tree oil on my acne prone skin, so I was really excited to try this out! Oops. As any oil would, tea tree oil dissolves makeup on the skin. Applying makeup with this was mildly disastrous. I was told I looked like the wicked witch of the west because of all the melting going on. (It was December, btw.)

              Great, but not the best for sensitive skin...

              By Nora Elizabeth

              from Alabama

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

              After buying this, I kept everything in my routine the same, but now with this primer. It's a WONDERFUL primer, but it's also how I found that my skin is incredibly sensitive. With it, my makeup lasted all day with no need of touch ups, but after taking my makeup off at the end of the day I would have a few bumps. I was okay with it at first, I assumed it was just my skin acting up because it wasn't used to it yet or because it was around the time for my period. Further on into using however, my acne became worse and worse (coming from mostly clear skin to all around my jaw being littered with large, painful bumps that I couldn't pop). I would fully recommend if you don't have problems with sensitive skin or severe acne, otherwise I would look for something else.
