    Comments about ULTA Professional Matte Prime:

    I'm fairly new to the primer scene (why did I wait so long??) and this is by far my favorite. I have large pores that I struggle to hide and get shiny throughout the day, especially in my t-zone. This product gives me a nice smooth completion and keeps the shine at bay. Awesome!

                            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.
