This treatment primer helps minimize blemishes and blot away shine without blocking pores. Designed for oily combination skin, this clever cream absorbs excess oil to leave the skin shine free and looking matte. It also minimizes blemishes and imperfections, without blocking pores.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The trick to this primer After a couple of uses I thought this primer was no good but then started to play around and found out that using a little bit on just the places needed ( for me my nose and cheeks and chin ) use small amounts and pat in to skin not rub as when rubbed it just breaks if off and disappears hope this tip helps

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the only thing that works on my oily skin If you don't like this product then clearly you don't have an oily skin. My skin is oily, and I mean I need to blot and powder every 2 hours oily. That was until I discovered this product. I do still use a powder to set my foundation, because I am super oily, but this helps my skin stay matte or turn dewy rather than full on dipped-in-oil look. Plus I don't need to blot and powder for like 5 hours (!) which is amazing for my skin type. Only bad thing I have to say about it is that the application can be tricky as putting this under your makeup can cause streaks on your face. However, you can work around it by using only a little bit, only where needed, patting it in and lightly sweeping it around rather than rubbing it in, and using your foundation either with a brush, or again lightly patting it in, rather than rubbing it in with your fingers. I don't know if it actually helps blemishes, as I haven't been using it for that long to actually have an effect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use sparingly I bought this just to use on my t-zone to help control oiliness. When I bought it the very nice assistant told me to only use it where it's needed and only a small amount. It isn't suitable for using all over your face just in the oily places. I'd recommend another kind of primer for the rest of your face if you need it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs to be used carefully Like others have noted, this is quite 'chalky' when applied and can create odd flakes or balls if rubbed too hard. I've also found that it depends on your moisturiser, for example if you use a moisturiser with essential oils in it, the primer will emulsify in the oil, creating lumps. I found the primer worked best with oil-free moisturisers and more traditional creams rather than thin moisturising fluids or 'natural' moisturisers with essential oils in them. (Also - let your moisturiser sink in before applying this primer!) It also needs to be carefully smoothed, not rubbed, into the skin, and it can leave white tide marks if you're not careful so those need to be blended carefully. (Don't get it in your hairline or eyebrows either as it promptly sucks up your natural hair oil and sits there like huge dandruff flakes.) Despite all that, though, once you've got used to applying it, it works really well and kept me shine-free all day, which is more than I can say for face powder! A little goes a long way too so the tube will last. I use it very carefully in a stripe across my forehead and down the centre of my nose. It hasn't given me any spots or breakouts either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will not use another primer now I saw some comments about this and decided to try it for myself. I have struggled with oily skin for years but this stuff is amazing . I havent had any problem applying it and my matte foundation stays in place with virtually no powder needed. I love this product and what it has done to help my skin. I will not use a different one now

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing - once you get the hang of applying it! This was very nearly destined for the bin, it made my make up look patchy and awful and I was so disappointed. After several failed attempts at using it, I gave it one final shot, with better, refined application techniques, now I love it! I applied a TINY amount with a foundation brush, on well moisturised skin, to ONLY the areas were I needed it - nose and forehead. RESULT!! No patchiness, no greasiness, absolute perfection. I knew No7 wouldn't let me down! Will buy this again in a heartbeat.
