I’m always on the hunt for any skin care products that will help battle my oily skin. Neutrogena Shine Control Primer was my latest purchase to help the cause. I put it to the ultimate test on a warm summer day running errands at lunch time. The final verdict – for a drug store primer it held up fairly well. For the most part I wasn’t nearly as shiny as I would’ve have been sans the primer. If I had used a blotting sheet mid day, I probably would’ve been almost completely shine free by days end. One thing I did notice was that the primer tends to hold up best when adding a little loose powder. On the down side, if you put on too much primer, it tends to give your skin a chalky, ashen appearance so don’t go over board. All in all, for $11.99 I would give Neutrogena Shine Control Primer another try.
