    Comments about BareMinerals Blemish Remedy Mattifying Prep Gel:

    I used this product because I thought it would be similar to bare minerals' oil control primer (which is great by the way), with the added effect of decreasing blemishes. This product does not act as a primer, and certainly does not mattify my oily skin as advertised.

        I use stila's all day foundation and this primer applies my foundation smooth and easy. I love it. The reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because it's not completely mattifying and my blemishes haven't really improved (I honestly wasn't expecting them to from a primer) but I was expecting less oil. Other than that, I love it!

                I love Bare Mineral products. However, this was not what I expected. I don't think it controlled oil at all and it didn't seem to make a good foundation to apply Bare Minerals powder. To be honest, I don't think it helped with my acne at all either. This I will not purchase again.

                    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.

                            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.
