    Comments about BareMinerals Blemish Remedy Mattifying Prep Gel:

    I had tried several silicone-based primers and they didn't seem to help control the oiliness of my skin, so this primer was recommended to me. I still get shiny in the afternoon, but it does seem to work better than previous primers I've tried. Since it is not silicone-based, it doesn't have the typical silky feel or "filling in" effect of primers like Photo Finish, Pore-fessional, Spackle, etc.- but it does help my makeup (both powder and BB cream) last longer, and a little goes a long way.

        This product was suggested to me when my local Ulta ran out of the Smashbox blemish control primer. I loved this product from the first use. I don't plan on going back to the Smashbox primer. The Bare Minerals primer is my go to product from now on.

                  Both myself (over 45) and my teenage daughter use this. She has teenage acne prone skin and mine is just the "menopausal breakout" skin. Both of us love it. I have sensitive skin and it does not dry either one of our skin out. It works as a great primer for what ever type of makeup you use - liquid or powder. Dries extremely quick and does not require a large amount to cover a normal size face.

                      I used to buy Prime Time Oil Control Primer, which they no longer make anymore. Regular primer made my skin greasy and shiny all day. This product, while not as good as the Prime Time, does a pretty good job of controlling oil for most of the day and goes on smoothly.

                            Hello Angie,

                            The BareMinerals Blemish Remedy Mattifying Prep Gel does not claim to minimize large pores. This product would work best as it dries, and also would be considered a great priming base for foundations and powders.

                          I use the bareminerals original powder foundation would this primer work? Or should I keep using prime time. I'm prone to break outs.

                          I have oily/acne prone skin. I stay far away from products that have silicon in them due to a silicon-based primer breaking me out like crazy in the past. This product claims to help blemishes and keep oily skin matte. Will this product break me out and why/why not?
