Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer, 1 fl oz:

This simply didn't work for me. I was shiny within the hour both days I tried it before simply giving up. On the plus side, it did seem to reduce the look of pores, and it didn't cause any problems (acne, irritation).

    Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer, 1 fl oz:

    First of all, I have REALLY sensitive skin but this doesn't irritate me at all! I also have oily skin and this combined with a setting powder makes my makeup last longer and i can go 4-5hrs without shining!

    Works pretty well, slightly irritating.

    Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer, 1 fl oz:

    Summer is here and I'm an oily mess. Plus I only like to wear tinted moisturizers, which I haven't found one yet that doesn't leave me oily after a few hours. I recently bought this and have been happy with the results. Basically what the other reviewer said is true. It matifies but still will help you maintain a healthy glow. Mine lasted me about 4-5 hours before I got overly oily, but I don't feel like that's a fair assessment since the TM also has some shine to it. The product smells nice, but would prefer fragrance free products, especially since the target audience looking for this that are that oily may be acne prone and sensitive to irritants.

    What threw me off a bit was the rice grains. I had just used a Clarisonic dupe which left me as exfoliated as I wanted to be. I put this on and it was very scratchy, almost like very fine sand. I was worried putting it on that I'd be irritating my skin but it didn't cause any reaction. Not sure this can be avoided, but I wish it wasn't so.

      Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer, 1 fl oz:

      I'm older and don't have oily skin, however, my forehead is very shiny which I hate. I've tried several primers and while they removed the shine initially, after less than an hour the shine returned. So, I decided to try this product which promises to keep the shine away for eight hours. Well, I just looked in the mirror and was so excited to see no shine, I came right to the computer to leave a review. No shine plus my skin looks great, even when I put on my magnifying readers and look at myself in the mirror (which I use to read the small print on bottles). Usually when I put those glasses on and look at my reflection, I get scared :-). It hasn't been a full eight hours, only five, but that's good enough for me considering all the other primers I've used that didn't last even one hour. I don't have large pores, so I can't say whether it works to make them appear smaller, but I can say that it does keep the shine away and it gave me a natural, soft matte finish. Also, I found that I didn't need to use as much foundation as I usually do, which is great as I don't like wearing a lot of makeup. I'm very glad I found this product and I recommend it.
