Product Information:

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 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I love this primer! I have seriously oily skin and this actually keeps me from looking like a chip pan for a large chunk of the day. Normally by 2pm without primer my face looks like an oil slick, but by the 5pm there's only slight noticeable oil appearing. To anyone who says it gives them a chalky/white appearance I can only assume you're using to much, I don't find this at all! It makes my skin look nice and matte after I have cleansed and moisturized. Then my foundation just slides on. Well worth the money in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely Matte I love this primer. It is definitely matte and keeps me shine free all day. I have read previous reviews about it crumbling and being hard to apply. This can be true but there is a technique that i find works very well. Apply a reasonable size amont on the tip of your 2 fingers then rub with other 2 fingers on other hand (warm it up like moisturiser). Dot generously around your face and blend in. Do not rub too much as this causes the crumbling. The trick is to cover your face quickly, using gentle circular motions and leave a couple minutes before applying foundation. Once you nail the application the primer works cery well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely dissapointed Was so excited about this product as im really oily around my nose and forehead. Im honestly pretty sure it made it worse? I was noticing the oily parts a lot sooner and a lot more extreme. I was persistant with it as i thought it could be just me but using it every day for a month is enough. It has gone straight in the bin!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money I have used various different primers and this is the worst, I usually use the stay perfect but was reccommended this in store for my oily skin. It was a complete waste of money it forms little lumps as the product is applied and leaves make up looking dry and patchy - truly awful stuff! I have tried using this a few times and in different ways but always has the same result. Extremely dissapointed No 7!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT PURCHASE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES Total waste of money. I am rarely motivated to write a review, but this was so bad that I wanted to warn others off wasting their money. It feels like glue on the skin and it made my foundation clump over the course of the day in my pores. Not attractive I use a mid-range foundation and have never had this problem before using a primer, or with an alternative primer I purchased after the disaster of this product. This was so bad I did not even give it to a friend - it just went in the bin. I purchased a more expensive but much better product to replace it.
