Cover FX Mattifying Primer

Just so we are all on the same page, this product was formerly known as ClearPrep FX. This lightweight, water-resistant gel-primer gives an instant matte finish as well as minimizes the appearance of fine lines and pores.  It blends well with any foundation and also helps the healing of acne blemishes due to the active ingredient, 1% salicylic acid. Regardless of my makeup routine, I also noticed that it kept my skin texture looking flawless and matte throughout the day - with a bonus anti-acne treatment as well. 

The secret ingredients are:
Willowbark extract, naturally containing salicylic acid (for gentle exfoliation to clarify the skin and reduce sebum buildup)
- Ancient African tree bark extract (derived from chamomile plants, assists with minimizing pore size, shine, sebum, and acne inflammation)
- Natural fruit  acid complex of bilberry, sugar maple, lemon, sugar cane, and orange alpha-hydroxy acids (gently exfoliates and natural cell renewal process to unclog pores and allow drainage)
- Vitamins F, C, and E (to protect the skin, soothe inflammation, and reduce redness

This clinically tested primer is vegan and free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, fragrance, gluten, mineral oil, and talc. It's great for normal skin types and definitely oily skin types!  

I love how this also blended so well with my Cover FX Custom Cover Drops, you can find this review here. 

Available at your local pharmacy, Sephora or online at CoverFX in 2 formats: 15ml for $16 or 30ml for $38
