Review : The Face Shop Span Oil Control Primer

PRODUCT INFO from tube:
Formulated with sebum absorbing powder and pore smoothing elastic polymer, this makeup primer minimizes shine while enhancing the staying power of your foundation.

DIRECTIONS: Smooth on a fine layer before applying foundation.

RETAIL PRICE: Around Php 400+ in stores.

Bought this from a fellow girltalker coz its always OOS here in Cebu.

NET WEIGHT : 30 ml / 1.01 fl oz.


* product is easily absorbed
* the gel texture is similar to the famous Smashbox Photofinish Primer
* color is transparent green but turns clear once applied
* feels lightweight
* non-sticky and easy to blend
* inexpensive
* controls oil during the day (take note that I don't have super oily skin)

* i read this is already discontinued?! Boo!
* the scent kinda strong for my liking but it disappears after a few minutes

I use this after my Hype Gluta-C moisturiser. You only need a small amount for the entire face. I only use this during special occasions coz I'm afraid that the silicon content might break me out.

I love this primer! Hopefully they will have new stocks soon...

I'm looking for a new primer... this might be the one.


Nice review! I guess this is better than their professional line :) I don't like that primer so much, hard to blend!

discontinued?!? arg i hope not! I like using this primer as well, but I only use it on my forehead/nose area and only use it once in a while, since the silicone seems to make me break out if I use it too often.

I actually have a body shop primer than I never use. I should really get around to using it before it expires, but it's so hard to spread. This one seems much easier to apply though. Too bad it's discontinued! :(
