Tired of constant breakouts ruining your makeup looks? Ready to say goodbye to bumps, blemishes and redness? Experience the power of the e.l.f. Acne Fighting Putty Primer. This revolutionary skin-perfecting primer prevents future breakouts while creating a smooth, even canvas for flawless makeup application.
Infused with 1.8% salicylic acid, the e.l.f. Putty Primer gets to work immediately reducing acne and clearing pores. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid that exfoliates dead skin cells, dissolves blackheads and whiteheads, and prevents new blemishes from forming. The primer also contains zinc to soothe irritation and kaolin clay to absorb excess oil and toxins.
Together, these hardworking ingredients keep pores clean and clear while calming red, inflamed acne. Your skin will look and feel renewed.
How the e.l.f. Putty Primer Transforms Skin
The velvety putty formula offers numerous benefits for acne-prone complexions:
- Prevents future breakouts – Salicylic acid penetrates deep into pores, removing dirt, oil and bacteria that lead to acne.
- Soothes irritation and redness – Zinc and kaolin clay reduce inflammation caused by breakouts.
- Minimizes the look of pores – Kaolin clay mattifies shine and makes pores look smaller.
- Controls excess oil – Kaolin clay soaks up oil while salicylic acid regulates sebum production.
- Exfoliates dead skin cells – Salicylic acid gently removes the dead skin cells and debris that clog pores.
- Evens out skin texture – Creates a smooth canvas by blurring the look of blemishes and red spots.
Your skin will look clearer and feel calmer almost instantly. The putty primer preps skin perfectly for flawless makeup application while continuing to prevent new breakouts beneath the surface.
Velvety Formula Grips Makeup in Place All Day
The e.l.f. Putty Primer has an innovative formula that glides onto skin seamlessly then sets into a velvety finish. The primer feels lightweight yet has a tacky texture that grips makeup in place all day long.
Apply the primer before liquid or powder foundation for smooth application and staying power. The putty acts like magnets under your makeup, preventing slipping, creasing, fading and the dreaded midday meltdown.
The primer itself has a natural flesh-tone color that evens out and color corrects the complexion. On makeup-free days, wear the primer alone to blur imperfections and control shine for a filter-like finish.
