    Works great at controlling shine. Did not like how it felt when applying, feels like a liquid powder. Not the right product if looking for a smooth, velvety texture.

    Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

    I use this everyday! I have very oily and sensitive skin, I've been spending big bucks for years trying to find something to help, decided to give this a try and I love it!
    Moisturize well before you apply to help with smooth application other than that I've found no problems!

      Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

      I was a bit cautious purchasing this product after reading some of the reviews but after using it for about a week I'm glad I got it. I didn't break out which has been a problem for me as of late, hid the pores on my nose pretty well, and I like the scent. Yes there was a slight grittiness but not really that big a deal. I pat all over my face and use a beauty blender, let it set, then use my liquid foundation over it.

        Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

        Only reason it gets 4 stars and not 5 is because the cream it's self is a bit "rough and grainy" can take time to get use to but other wise I love it. Use it every day. It's the only thing I've found that controls my t zone oil shine for the entire day with only 1/2 powder touch ups

            I am very oily, like 3-4 hours tops before I look like I was in a sauna there's so much shine. But this stuff pulls me thru a full work day, less shine. Less smudge. Matte look and fixed in place (no melting)

              Not going to lie, I still look kinda oily at the end of the day, but it's done the best job of any primer and helps keep the foundation from melting away.

                I've used this product for a little over a week now and it's pretty good. I have oily skin and it seems to help my makeup stay on longer which is a big plus for me. It also helps me achieve more of a matte finish when applying it to my face.

                        Did not like the product at all. As many reviews have mentioned, it does clump and make tiny white balls on your skin. Do not buy. Not worth $13-$14.
