      Comments about The Body Shop Skin Primer Matte It:

      Probably the worst primer I've ever used, I have oily skin so I was obviously interested in this product since it's supposed to help keep skin matte. I don't know how but it did the complete opposite, the texture of it alone is awful, it's very greasy and this primer seems like it should be geared more towards very dry skin types. It made my skin look shiny and gross after putting on my foundation, avoid!

      Comments about The Body Shop Skin Primer Matte It:

      This primer is not good for oily skin. Initially when you apply it, your skin does feel smooth and looks matte. But then I just start to get oily and it doesn't hold at all. I think this would be good for dry or normal skin because it does have a nice finish.

      Comments about The Body Shop Skin Primer Matte It:

      I really like this product, it goes on really nice and a little goes a long way. I wouldn't say that it stays matte on me through out the day thought.

      Comments about The Body Shop Skin Primer Matte It:

      I really, really wanted to love this product. I originally purchased a few years ago and didn't like it. I repurchased it since the Body Shop had reformulated many of their products. If you have really oily skin like mine, it does nothing to help the shine. It does help even out the skin as a primer. I think this would work for normal skin and dry skin though.
