It works
July 31, 2017

During the summer, my mature skin is so oily, so I thought I would give this a try. I love the package, keeping the foam applicator and product separate. It took some practice to apply an even thin layer of the primer on my skin. If I had thicker areas of application, it didn't seem to matter appearance wise, only to me. The primer kept my make up looking fresh several hours longer than I expected. This is a summertime keeper for me.

Not controlling my shine...
July 21, 2017

I was really hoping this primer would help control my shine, but it's not really doing the job as well as I would like. I don't plan on returning this product since the discounted price was one of the things that attracted me to purchase, plus the Jane Iredale name. I think next time I will purchase Smooth Affair For Oily Skin Facial Primer & Brightener.

Perfect for combination skin
August 21, 2015

I love this product! I have combination skin and find this primer to really help control the oily part of my skin. When I use it under my make up I no longer have a shiny looking face. I would highly recommend this product!!

Great for oily skin
September 21, 2014

I am a 54 yr old with very oily skin. I decided to give this a try. Unfortunately, I do not have a foundation brush, so I use my fingers. I have tried with several different BB creams to see which will give me the least oiliest face. I have tried other primers, buth Jane Iredales is the best so far. I dont have to blot very much through out the day as I did with other primers. I really like the way it takes up the oil. I am very please with and will definitely be ordering more.

Does what it says

I do not use this everyday. It really does help with oil control and keeps your makeup looking fresh looking.

Jane Iredale Absence Oil Control Primer
May 31, 2012

I've only used this product a few times after purchasing it. I didn't like how the primer made my skin feel upon the original application and I felt like my skin looked more oily at the end of the day when I used it. I love Jane Iredale products, but this is not a favorite of mine.

Doesn't seem to make a difference
March 12, 2012

My face doesn't look any different with or without the product. Same amount of shine, same duration of wear from my make-up. I don't understand the purpose of using this.

not for those with super oily skin
October 24, 2011

I was excited to read others reviews that said this was a highly recommended product, but I was disappointed. Not only did it not help with oiliness but I actually felt like it made my skin feel greasier by mid-day. I used product as directed, but I also tried using more and then using less, but still my skin felt more oily/greasy than usual.

i actually received this item as a free sample with a purchase awhile back, and i love you!! i am not a fan of oil control lotions because they always feel so heavy. this light powdery oil control works well and feels light as a feather!!! love it!

Trying this for the first time, i have used the clear & like very much, wondering if this will cover redness

No More Shine!
September 15, 2008

I love this product! Sometimes I use it alone without foundation if I don't want much coverage. It works great as long as you follow the application instructions which are included with your purchase.
