Most Helpful Positive Review Long Lasting, easy to apply
I have always been a big user of makeup primer, I feel it just makes the process of applying makeup so much easier and the end product looks that much better. The Dermablned Poresaver Matte Makeup Primer went on nice and smooth similar to other products that I have tried that are out there. Unlike other products I love that Dermablend is dermatologist recommended as it means a lot that they are approving what goes on my face. I loved how long this kept my face looking refreshed and I completely believe they claim"you can wear it for up to 24 hours". I would by this product again as it is for oily and dry skin types so I can use it on my skin as the seasons change. Also as the seasons change so does my skin tone so I am in love with the fact that the product itself is clear. I was not aware of this brand before I received a sample, but I will look into their product line, will definitely buy again and also recommend to my friends.
Most Helpful Critical Review Blurs pores and mattifies, but doesn't work under foundation
This Dermablend Poresaver Matte Makeup Primer feels a bit watery straight out of the tube but it feels very silky, smooth and weightless when applied to the skin, and is easily and evenly blended into the skin. On its own it is really a wonderful primer and instantly mattifies my skin while making my enlarged pores much less noticeable. But I was very disappointed in this product when I tried to layer my liquid foundation on top of this primer as I usually do in order to achieve a smooth and flawless makeup look. This product does not work well with liquid foundations, instead it just smears and smudges as if the primer never dried down first. It also creates awkward flakes all over my face. If you're looking for a primer to wear on its own, this product works well to blur pores and mattify skin. But if you're looking for a primer that helps you achieve a smooth base for a flawless makeup look I do not recommend this product!

I was sent this complimentary of the company and I was surprised at how well it worked! Has a kind of silky texture, almost reminds me of smashbox photo ready but this is def better than that. Keeps my oily skin at bay and makeup looks flawless all day
Wow! Oily skin MUST-HAVE
Anonymous from Greenfield, WI
Finally a product that keeps my makeup on all day!! I've tried so many different primers and none of them have ever worked on my skin. Within a couple of hours my skin gets so oily that any makeup I put on just seems to dissolve right off my face. This product right here literally kept my face oil & shine free all day long!! I've used it under powder foundation and under liquid foundation and it worked wonders with each!! I seriously can't believe it. I highly recommend this primer for oily skin types.

You just can't imagine how smooth this is on your face! I'm sorry I didn't find ths sooner!!!
Best primer ever!
Sara B from Charlotte, NC
I normally don't write reviews but this primer is amazing!! My skin has become more oily in my 40s and I have tried EVERYTHING from high end to low end and never found one that worked for me. Normally the oil is already starting to come through by the time I get to work and today I am already 5 hours into my work day with NO shine and that includes having to wear a mask whenever I am away from my desk. I am so impressed and so in love with this product!!
Great primer for oily skin!
Socalgirl from Corona, CA
This primer does exactly what it is supposed to do! Highly recommend it. I have very oily skin and this really did the job. Usually I have to blot my face a few times through out the day. Not with this primer! I even sweated and this primer kept me matte. Make sure and shake the bottle before using.
This will mattify your skin!!!
AM1990 from Palm springs,CA
I've been looking for a primer that will actually keep my oily skin matte-- and now I have finally found it! Yes, the price is a bit too high but the product it completely worth it since it keeps your face matte for hours long ( I had a full face of makeup for 10 hrs).
Best primer ever!

love love love it

it is super smooth, and worked under makeup really well on my skin.
Didn't work for me
Karly from San Antonio, Texas
I have combination and sensitive skin with large pores. I liked this primer, in that fact it's non comedogenic, until I put foundation on over it. It made my skin dry and flakey and also seemed to increase the appearance of my pores after foundation.
blurring, but not mattifying
Jacqui from Philadelphia, PA
When I first apply this primer, it is definitely very blurring and provides a nice base for foundation. However, I have extremely oily skin and it does not make any difference with keeping me matte throughout the day. I think this primer would be great for people with normal skin who want to blur and smooth their pores and skin texture. But, for people who get very oily, it's not super effective.
How is this so good??
Kim from Chicago
I have the oiliest skin out of anyone I know personally. No joke. I always ended up with oil ruining my makeup an hour or so after applying but I used it for the first time today and I only needed to blot once today! Just one sheet! With other products I blot multiple times a day with multiple sheets. I am in love!
Great primer, but cheaper out there!
Laina from Katy, TX
I enjoyed this primer underneath a full face of makeup. My makeup stayed in place all day! The primer feels slippery like silicone and fills my pores so I have a nice base for foundation. I thoroughly enjoyed this primer but there wasn't exactly a wow factor that I can't get in a cheaper primer. There are many other brands out there that have the same product that gives the same end result.
Love this primer for my face
Kristin from Florida
Obsessed with this face primer. It goes on very easily and makes my skin feel very smooth. I let it dry then add my makeup for the day. Being in Florida it's humid and hot so having a good all day makeup primer on base helps the makeup stay a little bit longer. My face doesn't feel greasy when using this.
Uh, not sure...
Kara from IL
I was excited to try this primer bcuz it's probably the most important thong to start with of you want flawless make up applied on your skin. Now, I tried using it alone- - with & without moisturizer & this products clogged my skin real bad. Then I used it underneath foundation & it Made the foundation very patchy. Then I mixed it with the foundation- - with & without moisturizer underneath. The only thing I liked was the texture when applying to the skin, but other than that it's not for me.
No, I wouldn't buy again
Shelli from Reno
Well, the mattifier properties are not the best. Only lasts for a few hours before you start to have a shine. It does work great for making your pores appear smaller. I feel a little robbed because I bought it as a matte primer and reading the box before i bought it, kinda promised it would keep you matte. I dont think I'll buy this again . There are drug store primers that work better then this one and I can find a pore minimize cheaper too.

Dermablend primer glides on smoothl. This blurs most of the pores giving skin a smooth base to put make up on! Very impressed with the results!

Kandace from Scranton
I was a little iffy on this primer due to my skin type & being a bit picky. My skin tends to get flaky & dry in spots making it hard to use just any primers normally, however I was quite surprised with this product. It doesnt have a greasy, nasty feeling or make my face/makeup shiny. I'm able to use my makeup with out having dry patches or flaky makeup either. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone as I have already done so.
Clogged pores and caused breakout
Ali from DFW
Besides the clogged pores and pimples, there was some foundation build up in wrinkles/creases
Amandatay84 from Hazel park, mi
The Dermablend poresaver matte makeup primer is great, it goes on super smooth and doesn't take much product to cover the entire face. I think it is important to point out that you should definitely shake this primer up a bit before use, when I didn't, it was kind of runny.
This primer definitely keeps my skin looking and feeling matte, my makeup up also stays on like a champ!
I would buy this!
lisazhang123 from Virginia
poresaver matte makeup primer is an excellent primer for everyday makeup routines. It's great as a foundation and it keeps my face refreshed and clean. My skin feels hydrated and moisturized. I feel softer and silker skin and I cannot leave without using this primer. I recommend this product.
Amazing primer, one catch
seeJsave from New Orleans, LA
I was so excited to try this primer as I've heard amazing things about the Dermablend brand. Overall I absolutely loved this.
-It only takes a bit to do your entire face so a bottle will last a long time
-It's not too thick and suffocating feeling like some gel primers
-It's super lightweight
-It minimizes pores, uneven skin texture and lines
-It's actually matifying, even in Souther heat and humidity
I've already recommended it to friends so why only four stars? I think it may cause minor breakouts. Each time I've used it, I've ended up with a pimple. Still the pros outweigh the possible con. I'll definitely keep using this primer.
Karen from Denver, CO
I've been searching more a mattifying primer that wouldn't suck the life out of my skin, wouldn't break me out and would maintain my oil at bay. Finally, I found it. A couple of girls recommended it, and I usually break out or my oil ends up showing through regardless. I've tried all kinds of high-end mattifying primers, but this one really did it. If my oils show through, it keeps me really natural. I am really, really, really oily, and I'm shook that this actually did the job. It's makes my skin soft, and upon application, it stays put and makes my skin super smooth.
Love love love this product
Aida from Lancaster, Pennsylvania
I use this daily to help with oil control and shine. It lasts all day. Does not cause me to break out. Will be purchasing more once I run out.
