      This product had a terrible gritty texture and did not go on my skin well at all. Do not waste your money on it!

        Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

        Very good product. Saw this on sale so I bought it. My face would get oily for using foundation and powder. After using this product, I saw a huge difference. No traces of oil! Thank goodness for this primer.

          Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

          I had tried a few matte foundations for my oily to combination skin, but didn't find anything that was actually mattifying and reduced the appearance of my pores. I decided to try a matte primer, and I'm glad I did! This works great under a cc cream and/or loose powder without drying my skin out too much.

                          Don't buy this. When you apply it on your face, it feels like a scrub with microbeads, VERY irritating to skin. It's IMPOSSIBLE to put any makeup on with this "primer."
                          Normally, if I buy a product and kinda don't like it, I finish the bottle up anyways and never buy it again. This time, I threw it away after two applications. I can't believe how bad it is.

                          I wanted so bad to love this product and the overall application and wear are great, I just couldn't get past the overall floral smell that lasted even after application. It did burn my sensitive skin a little bit which is why I decided not to keep it.

                                I bought this along with the foundation and under eye concealer, my skin is super oily with most makeups by lunch time and this didn't help me at all :( I was hoping after all of the reviews that it helps with oily skin, I don't know what I am doing wrong, I will not buy again
