This Week's Answer
e.l.f. Blemish Control Face Primer is infused with tea tree oil, salicylic acid and vitamin E — a blend that according to the company, works over time to combat breakouts, clarify skin and prep the face for a perfect makeup application. The tea tree oil provides antiseptic and anti-inflammatory benefits while the salicylic acid fights blemishes, and vitamin E is incorporated to soften the skin.
The product is described as ideal for oily and irritated skin. It is designed to deliver a sheer matte finish with "weightless wear" in a silky formula that hydrates and clarifies skin, imparting smoothing benefits for a flawless complexion (with or without foundation).
The product is vegan, cruelty-free and made in a Fair Trade factory.
