Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super product, spot on name ! I love this product because it really works beautifully with just a scant amount. It really keeps the skin matte for many hours. I use it over my tinted moisturizer just in my t-zone to keep my makeup looking natural and fresh.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Same chalky complaint I bought this at target with a few other boots products and it's really awful. It turns to a clumpy, chalky mess as soon as it touches my face and may makeup I've attempted to apply over it looks awful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product! I have oily spot prone skin and this has been great, it keeps oil at bay and my skin hasn't broken out as much since using it, the consistency is strange at 1st but if you put it on small areas at a time it works great, it dries very quickly. Will definitely be buying again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a disappointment... I bought this product as they didn't have Rimmel Long lasting Finish Primer in stock. This product, however, is horrible. It leaves a terrible feel on the skin. It does make the skin matte, but it feels like you've added some dry clue onto your face! After a while, it feels as if the texture of your face is dry and powdery. If you use it as a primer underneath or over your foundation, it will leave streak marks too! Wouldn't recommend to purchase this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect! This is the PERFECT make up base. It keeps your make up matte all day which for me used to be a major problem. If you are reading other reviews and are worried about when it turns crumbly and bits clump together as you apply it, this only happens when you haven't moisturised. So just moisturise before you apply it which I do every morning and have no problems with the product. I was originally put off by the price but I last bought mine 8 months ago, and have used it every day and it's only just now come to the point where I need to buy a new one. definitely worth the price!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing For starters I'm not sure how this product has that many stars, if I could I would give it zero. When I first tried it, I noticed it started flaking off my skin when applying it. I've tried several times thinking maybe it's just me being to hard on application but the results weren't any different. I'm disappointed I've wasted my money! But hey what can you do about it...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Takes practice I have used this primer for a couple of years on and off. Many of the negative comments made about this primer are valid - if you are not careful/are unlucky, the primer does leave a chalky residue, can be un-even and does gather into little balls. However, I do still use this product and have learned how to work with it. First, I only use it when I am particularly oily. If I'm not, I use the Airbrush primer. Second, I don't put it on over a thick moisturiser (eg one that takes a while to sink in). I put it over something light like a Simple moisturiser and make sure it's sunk in before I try to apply the primer (which stops the balls). Thirdly, I only apply a small amount of product in a thin layer to my t-zone and blend out to rest of my face working quickly so it doesn't try and trying not to rub too much. Fourthly, I don't put it near my nostrils - to stop any white residue forming which is not a good look on the way to work!! I then wait for it to dry before putting on my make up. I do find that when it works, it works well at mattifying my skin and the effect lasts a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for my oily skin! This is my favourite no7 product by far. After suffering with oily skin since starting high school I have finally found something that actually works. My T-zone is always the oiliest and with just a teeny pea sized (maybe even less) amount applied to my forehead, nose and chin my skin turns beautifully matte. Its amazing! I have never had a problem with chalkiness or the product rubbing off which I know some people have. This is my 5* product, highly recommend if you have shiny, oily skin, like me!
