                Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

                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

                      Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

                      I have extremely oily skin and large pores. I put it over moisturizer and under a popular powder foundation and drugstore shine free powder. I feel it is probably best under liquid foundation. I found that my makeup stays on longer around my pores, but it does not fix my pores at all. Apply thick like foundation. It made a huge difference when I used more and let it dry. At 2 hours, my pores are showing and at about 5 hours I start to have melted makeup. It honestly does make it last longer, just not long enough. Need makeup remover to take off.

                        It feels kinda gritty which I was concerned about at first but it goes on well, blends well with makeup and controls shine.

                          I have oily skin and have always had a hard time keeping my skin from getting shiny. This is the best thing I have found for keeping the shine at bay and making my makeup look fresh all day long.

                              This product feels like it has an exfoliant in it, it is very gritty and uncomfortable to apply. It is labeled shine free, but it seemed like a highlighter. the consistency is not thick like other primers I've used, but rather like a sunscreen.
