Chamos Acaci Matte Pore Primer is the first primer that I tried. To be exact, I bought the Loreal primer but it’s clumpy and thick, so I have never used it. I will just come right out and say it, this is one of the star products in this line!

[The Missy’s Say]
✔ It’s hard to describe, it’s like cream, but a little ‘powdery’.
✔ Perfumed, well tolerated (for me).
✔ ✔ When spread on face, it feels soooo smooth, silky, velvety smooth. It is so easy to apply on the skin. When used alone, it gives a fresh looking face (minus the shine) with a smoother complexion. It’s really quite amazing!
✔ It doesn’t alter your skin color.
✔ ✔ This is another area that is really amazing! It really helps with the sebum control. The only problem is that my skin felt so smooth when I used the product, I kept touching my face.
I wore this under the BB cream (and my gosh! The BB cream simply glided on more easily and the pores are minimized!), but I didn’t wear it long enough, so I can’t really say if it helps to keep the BB cream stays fresher than usual.
✔ It didn’t break me out after a few uses; but I don’t use it everyday, so I can’t give the most accurate account. It is very light on skin though.
I am one hyper fussy person, it’s quite unusual that I can’t find anything I don’t like about a product. In my strictest scrutiny, I would say that the box (that I don’t keep anyway) was a little dented and crushed.
Oh, ok, there is one thing.
✔✘ Silica (in the ingredients) – some people are allergic to silica, so you may want to do a patch test along your jawline or neck (I don’t know about you, but the skin on my face is definitely more sensitive as compared to my hands) to see if your skin reacts to silica. I am grossly not allergic to it, but the more delicate skin around my lips and eyes burnt a wee bit, but no redness or rash bumps.
✔✘ – means neutral; depending if your skin is allergic to the ingredient or not.
