Take control of shiny, oily, skin and create an instant matte finish with Exuviance Matte Perfection. This super light, oil-free gel quickly absorbs excess oil and minimizes the appearance of pores, transforming oily skin into a smooth matte complexion. Exuviance Matte Perfection glides easily over or under moisturizer, can be worn under makeup as a primer, or over makeup to impart a fresh, shine-free finish anytime of the day.

Mandelic Acid, a naturally occurring Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) found in almonds, helps provide long-lasting control over oiliness and shine while smoothing the skin. Gluconolactone, a Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) helps improve uneven pigmentation, enlarged pores and roughness, while adding anti-oxidant properties and anti-aging benefits to help decrease fine lines and wrinkles.
Gently smooth over face. Can be worn alone, or over or under other cosmetics. Daily use of a sunscreen or sun avoidance is recommended with use of this AHA product and for one week after to minimize the risk of sun sensitivity/sunburn.

    Comments about Exuviance Matte Perfection:

    I use this in place of a moisturizer in the morning. It says it's a primer but with my ultra oily skin I can get away with using it as a moisturizer. I don't like the way it primes on it's own tho so I add another mattifying primer on top. And with that combo I am shine free for about 6 hrs and even then it's not too bad. But I'll blot and add a little bye bye pores powder and I'm good to go for the rest of the day. It's really been a game changer.

      Comments about Exuviance Matte Perfection:

      This product was recommended to me by an employee. She said it was one of the only few primers that didn't have a silicone feel. Tested it on my hand and I had to buy it. It's lightweight, it doesn't smell, and I can see my pores disappear as soon as I apply it. I would definitely recommend this product!

            I just purchased this primer and I love it. I just use 2 pumps and apply it under my foundation. It makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. I compared it to the Smashbox primer, and there was a huge difference. And when I got this one on sale, the price was the same!!
            I think it makes a difference diminishing those fine lines around my eyes, but that also may just be wishful thinking. What I love is that it's good for my skin, and it feels great.

              I have tried several high end primers and have hated everyone one of them. The sales rep at Ulta used this on me and I instantly feel in love. A little goes a long way and my skin feels soft even after I remove my makeup. Everyone has noticed how different my face looks with and without makeup since using this product. I will never use anything else!!♡♡

                  This is the best primer. I have tried smashbox and this is so much better. It keeps me from getting oily all day. And it drys with in seconds.
