Multi-tasking oil-free gel controls oil and shine all day. Mattes the T-zone area; reduces the look of pores. Leaves a velvety-soft natural finish, under or over makeup.
I have a super shiny, oily t-zone and I hardly wear foundation - this was made for me!
It is lightly flesh toned but blends in clear. The product goes on like a cream to powder finish. My skin looks so even and smooth and my pores are non-existent. It keeps the shine at bay for hours and is my secret weapon as to why I do not wear foundation. (But you could).
It is a nice sized squeeze tube, easy to use and clean. You do have to squeeze the product out, it is not runny.
I use this after my 3-step, and top with powder blusher and loose powder. I have many visible freckles and this melts in clear and does not look chalky on my skin. It is a staple in my makeup case and I am never without it. This is a top recommendation from me.

I have used this in the past as a mattefier for my oily skin. Clinique is a great line for those who have sensitive skin. Try this product. You'll like it!
I think I've tried every primer on the market. My skin is very oily in the t zone and dry everywhere else; super convenient. This product glides over rough patches, fills in pores and really keeps oils at bay. I wouldn't say you'll be shine free all day but I get a good 6 hours without touch ups. After that, I choose to embrace the shine through.
It is really nice and interestingly stops my forehead and nose from being super oily. Pore-size is hidden.
I have large pores and it does the job to hide them very nicely. Results are not permanent of course, but I really appreciate the effect it gives my skin.
It does minimise the appearance of pores and helps my tone stay matte for a long time! However it is merely a fix product and so does not help minimise pores over time but only covers them up!
