Review – Jouer Anti-Blemish Matte Primer

4 Nov

 Jouer Anti-Blemish Matte Primer gets great reviews.  Is it weird that I am completely surprised at how much people like this?

What sets this primer apart from the competition, is that it claims to treat and prevent blemishes.

From jourcosmetics.com

Product Description

Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment

This oil free mattifying anti-blemish primer, formulated
with Salicylic Acid, penetrates into skin to help treat existing blemishes, prevent development of new acne, and minimize the appearance of pores. Aloe, Vitamin E, Ginseng & Gingko Biloba Extract help calm redness and reduce inflammation, promoting a shine-free, even complexion.  30 mL / 1.0 fl oz

Oil Free.  Hypoallergenic.  Paraben Free.  Silicone Free.  Fragrance Free.  Dermatologist tested.

My thoughts

This doesn’t prime.  Sort of problem since it’s supposed to be a primer.

It may work as a treatment, but if you are looking for a flawless look, you will need an actual primer.

Jouer Anti-Blemish Matte Primer sank right into my skin.  So the foundation, sort of sank right in too.  I didn’t get the primed effect I have come to expect from Smashbox.

Also, I think this broke me out.   This also surprised me since I already use a salicylic acid toner, so my skin didn’t need to purge anything.

Would I purchase?

No.  There are better primers out there on the market.

Have you used the Jouer Anti-Blemish Matte Primer?

    Thanks for the review. I am currently using the Smashbox blemish control primer and it seems to be a great mix of both a treatment and a primer.
