This blemish primer is very good on hiding acne and some age marks. You only need a very small amount to cover the area. When you apply the make up it stays in place all day. The primer is not greasy at all and covers very well.
So the blemish control primer by Milani is ok, but I am not sure about the feeling of it on my face. It's not as lightweight as I thought it would be, it's very thick. It also pills ( for me anyway) I do like that it has 2% salicylic acid and tea tree oil. If the consistency changes I'd be more than happy to purchase again!

This has got to be one of the worst products I have ever tried. I got it on sale and because it had good (but also bad) reviews overall. I tried it on my hand and loved the magnifying quality and that it died quickly; I thought I'd really like it on my face. When I put it on my face this morning, it seemed to apply nicely enough and felt dry. But when I put foundation over it, it just pulled right off my face with the foundation stuck to it, leaving a clumpy gross mess on my hands. I had to wipe everything off and start over with my normal products. The reviews I read about it doing this were right. I'm planning on returning it.

I love milani so much but this is so bad. It has a very strong smell which personally i dont mind but other people might not like that. Honestly the biggest problem is it doesnt work. It flakes off as soon as you put it on your face. I've moisturized, not moisturized, exfoliated, used my hands to apply it, used a brush, used a sponge, etc. i tried so hard to make it work but it just doesnt. It also makes your makeup come off faster than with no primer. It made mine so patchy. I really dont think there are any pros. Its really not even that color correcting.

There is a misconception, that if you're older, I am 70 years young, that your skin is dry, and it needs moisture. I'm sure the makers of this product would never envision that it would be my holy Grail. I have been unable to find a primer to prevent oil breakthrough. I have finally found the right combination of products to control the oil all day long. I am following one of two routines. One routine is to use a. SPF with color and then pat Erase Base on top of it with a small amount of concealer. Or, I mix erase base with a drop of foundation. Thank you Milani Cosmetics for developing such an awesome, effective product that I've been searching for years to find! Blessings!

This is the worst primer I have ever used in my LIFE. I tried it with many different foundations, with a brush, with a sponge, with my fingers, and it flaked every single time. It also smells very strongly of tea tree. It stings on acne and isn't even nearly as green tinted as you would expect. Would not reccommend at all.

Easily one of my favorite and one of the best primers out there! I just love this and would be so upset if it ever got discontinued!

Great coverage, feels good on my skin, and I like the scent. Doesn't do a great job covering the red though.

Every time I put my makeup on top of it it'd turn white and crack.

I tried to love it and I tried to work with it but it just keeps peeling off my face!

Smells minty and feels nice on my very sensitive skin.

I have been looking for Primers forever that would keep my makeup on all day and none seem to work. I came across this one as I do have combination and oily skin at the same time and some acne and this primer has been nothing short of amazing. My makeup lasts all day without creasing and it has helped with my acne a little bit to keep it down. The consistency is thick but it goes on very smoothly and a little goes a long way. I hope they don't ever change this because I'm never going back to any other primers.

SO BAD. if you want a good product from milani use the skin quench!! i really wanted to love this because i love milani, but it separates and pills SO badly. i tried to tap in with my fingers, didn't work, tried to wait until it dried down, still pills, tried to do it when it was wet, did not work. i don't recommend this whatsoever

I really wanted to like this. I keep trying to use it differently or with different products but everytime, pulling. it has a pretty strong tea tree smell too.
Dayana from Cabot, AR
This is your holy grail! I have blemishes and scarring and you can't even tell I have them with this primer.

Save your money. Unless you like to smell like tea tree oil and have your foundation pill like crazy.

Katherine from Rowland Heights
I wanted to love this primer so bad because of the soft matte velvety finish and because of the 2% salicylic acid, however, it did pull up on my skin as I was rubbing it in. I tried tapping it in and it still pilled up. Do not recommend.

This minimizes your pores beyond belief and leaves a smooth base

Super thick but goes on smoothly. Perfect for a base layer. Feels very moisturizing.

you struggle with oily skin, especially in the heat and humidity, this primer will be magic for you. It completely eliminates the oily shine that is usually found on my face. It also helps with acne!! Win win! This stuff is amazing

It is so pretty and highly pigmented. My daughter loves this so much. I would recommend it and I would buy it again.

Even though I'm in my 40s, I have had problems with acne my whole life. I still have times when big blemishes appear on my face and neck that I don't want to remain. I have used this on a few of them at night after washing my face, and after a couple of applications, it seems that my blemishes go away faster than they normally would. I wouldn't say it's a miracle remover and they are gone the next day, but blemishes are definitely gone faster than normal when I use this for a couple of days. I have been pleased with the results and would recommend this for small areas. I haven't tried it on a teenager with a breakout or anything to see how it works.

Don't love it, don't hate it. It smells strongly of tea tree. Rubs in well but as a primer I don't think it does a great job. Compared to other primers I use this acts more like a moisturizer. I also didn't notice much help with blemishes.
