Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! Pore Control & A Flawless Finish! Prep & Matte Primer, best primer I have ever tried. My morning routine is finalized! The final pats of Prep & Matte Primer start every day with a flawless poreless finish that stays matte all day! Its light weight, and in mere seconds its absorbed and my pores and fine lines have disappeared, and no oily shine! Prep & Matte not only hides my pores better than anything I have ever tried, it makes a great base to set the rest of your face on from a day at the office basic or a natural glow day in the park, to a glam look at night that stays put, stays fresh and stays pore free! I couldn't be happier, my search for that just right pore minimizer is Over! Prep & Matte Primer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised I was very skeptical about this product based on some of the negative reviews but so far I like it. It has a very different consistency and finish texture than its predecessor (LA Base pro - pore eraser). My foundation doesn't glide on as easily during application with this product but it is helping control the oil better than I expected it to and the foundation finished look is good. Make sure to let it dry thoroughly before apply your foundation though. I'm giving it 4 stars because I think the pore reduction effect could be better and for me the reduction in visible sebum after a couple hours could be better as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Primed and Ready This primer does the job if your foundation usually oxidizes, comes off, or like me, does both. My foundation stayed on (with the additional help of translucent powder and makeup hold spray). [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite! This primer quickly became my new favorite! I hate heavy silicone based primers, so this was a pleasant surprise! This has a nice lightweight texture, and smooth matte finish. I have oily skin, and I have never had a primer that controlled my oil like this one! The texture of this is different from most primers, and really seems to adhere foundation to the skin better than other primers. I love everything about it, and it smells nice too! I highly recommend this to anyone with oily skin!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a Pore Eraser alternative. I was so disappointed to hear your La Base Pro Pore Eraser was discontinued, but was told this was an excellent alternative. It's definitely not. On it's own merit, this product is fine. It's not oily and applied smoothly. I feel it provides a decent base for my makeup. However, it's nothing close to the Pore Eraser and I won't purchase it again. I strongly urge Lancôme to consider bringing back the Pore Eraser as that was the only reason I purchased my products from this company. I'll move on in hopes of finding something that meets my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and soft and works really well I wasn't sure which primer to buy and decided on this one because I wanted the Matt effect. I used to use the Pure Focus Moisturizer and was looking for something that would also have that mattifying effect. This primer has been great, I wear it every day. It is very light, soft and smooth when it goes on, but you really don't even notice it is there, allows you to layer the primer with your foundation and even powder or concealers without feeling like you have anything on your face at all. Very fresh feel and the mattifying effect is perfect. Makeup stays fresh and natural looking all day. It is a good moisturizer keeps your skin feeling good all day. This was the original purpose that I purchased it. Only note is if you use a highlighter, you may get that dewy look (from the added highlighter) - at first, I thought it was that the matte primer wasn't working, but then I realized my highlighter was countering the effect. Still beautiful, but obviously if you put something on top of it that gives a dewy look, the other non-matte primer is probably a better fit for you.
