    Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

    I use this for applying makeup if I intend to go out and it keeps my makeup on just as good as any other primer I've used. It works really well alone even with getting rid of the shine and it makes me skin feel silky. The only thing I don't like is when I'm applying it, it can get weird on my fingers and I have to rinse my hands a few times.

      Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

      After 1st facial washing in morning, apply light layer of shine control. Lasts all day while at work. Works as well, if not better than 5 other brands I have tried and some of which I can no longer get.

            Item does not hide shine and it does not prime very well. Would not buy again.

                Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

                First off, I was really excited to try this because I read and watched a bunch of videos recommending this product for those of us who have oily skin. But i used a tiny amount on my chin and nose area first and let it sit for awhile to see how well it would work alone and my skin looked like i had rubbed chalk on it. & i did my normal skin prep, oil free moisturizer, let it set for a few mins and then applied the primer in a dabbing motion.

                Not only that, my skin was burning. I dont have sensitive skin so im not sure what happened with this primer. But i gave it to my sister who also has oily skin and her skin looked the same. Left white residue all over. Leaves skin patchy and uneven. My hunt for a primer continues.

                  I was hoping to love this as I try to avoid wearing makeup but wanted something to help with oil control and reduce my pores. Unfortunately after several tries, I broke out EVERY time I used this. I have been using Proactiv and my skin looks pretty good, but every time I have worn this, my face breaks out in white heads and bumps.

                    Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

                    I think this product is a great primer for oily skin. It is an affordable primer one can use everyday. I think, in order for it to work best, you need to pair this primer with other products that help with oil control (I use Revlon ColorStay foundation for Oily Skin and I also use Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray). For me, this is an unbeatable combination. But, on quick days where I don't use the Revlon ColorStay or the UD De-Slick spray, the primer still helps with oil control. You'll still have to blot with this stuff, but not as much as you would without this primer.

                      I've been plagued with oily skin my whole life. I've been using this for a month now and I am in love with the results. Keeps my skin from getting shiny throughout my work day. Highly recommended.

                          Purchased this looking for an cost-effective alternative to Benefit's primer. I have combo skin with an oily t-zone. This primer went on very white and had a rough or chalky texture. It was difficult to blend in to the skin enough to loose the white-cast. Finally, it irritated my skin with a slight burn on application.
