    This makes my skin look and feel so smooth. I'm not as oily as I used to be, but this keeps my face from looking so greasy. Where was this when I was in high school?

              I love the smooth way this feels going on my skin, and how it makes applying BB cream or other foundation SO MUCH easier to put on. Also like to use it when I don't necessarily use foundation, because the matte primer lessens my skin's natural shine.

                    I have oily, acne-prone skin, so I needed a primer that would keep my full-coverage foundation in place without causing breakouts. This primer does just that, AND it keeps my face matte all day! I didn't even think that was possible. This is an amazing, silky smooth primer that I highly recommend!

                            Matte Prime is clear, so it is not a replacement for BB cream or foundation. It can certainly be used underneath your BB cream to extend its wear plus provide a lasting, smooth matte finish.

                            This product contains 1.5% Salicylic Acid to help mattify oily skin and eliminate and prevent acne. If you're dry in some areas, we'd recommend applying a lightweight moisturizer underneath this product to further help balance your skin.
