      Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

      I've been trying to find a good mattifying primer because I have excessively oily skin. With my new skin care routine and this primer I find my makeup stays on a lot longer, I usually only have to blot or add powder once a day but overall my face doesn't feel oily or look shiny.

          Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

          I was having trouble with blotchy foundation on my nose with other primers. This sets my makeup well without being too drying. My recommendation for other oily-skinned people is to put this one, let it set for 1-2 minutes at least, then put on your foundation. Also, use a damp blending sponge instead of a dry sponge or a brush. Switching to this primer plus using a damp sponge really has helped my foundation last all day (granted, I don't work outdoors, but my makeup usually melts off from my sebum even in an air conditioned office!)

              This is great to put on after your moisturizer and before you foundation. It really helps to eliminate shine caused by excess oil. It doesn't clog pores so it's great for acne prone skin.

                    This is the only primer I have found that controls shine all day long--despite the summer heat. This primer blends perfectly with my foundation and keeps my makeup intact and flawless all day long.
