Combo Control Milky Face Primer

1.0 oz Item 2511420

Find in Store-

bareMinerals Combo Control Milky Face Primer provides the perfect balance to those who need it most - anyone with combination skin or areas with excess oil.

With the effect of a soft focus filter, it absorbs oil in the T-zone and other shiny spots, while maintaining all-important moisture balance, so skin looks hydrated and healthy. This feel-good formula begins as an easy-to-apply milky serum, and dries down to a silky, powdery finish.

Formulated with mineral silica and African tree bark extract to soak up excess oil, Combo Control Milky Face Primer reduces the appearance of pores and blurs skin imperfections. Skin becomes equalized: oil breakthrough is reduced throughout the day, and moisture balance is restored so skin doesn't feel tight. Makeup goes on smoother and lasts longer.

In a consumer test:
  • 90% of women felt their T-zone was more manageable throughout the day
  • 90% of women felt their makeup lasted longer throughout the day
  • 94% of women agreed this primer improved their makeup application

*Based on a US independent consumer study of 30 women.

Benefits:
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Non-comedogenic
  • Oil-free

Clinically shown to instantly mattify shine and absorb oil.
After skincare and before foundation, apply a pea size amount all over the face.

    Comments about BareMinerals Combo Control Milky Face Primer:

    I have horribly oily skin, but the Becca matte primer is just a bit too matte for me. The texture of this Bare Minerals primer seems oily, but it goes on smooth and is actually very light. The primer does not allow oil to shine through, and my makeup lasts much longer than with other primers. I am a big fan!

        Comments about BareMinerals Combo Control Milky Face Primer:

        I normally use the bareminerals original primer for my face, but I decided to give this one a try. The main reason I wanted to try it is I have dry skin on my cheeks and around my nose, but a very oily t-zone. The product as a whole works. It does not make my t-zone any better like it says it will. I do like when I put it on, it wipes away all my dry skin. A MAJOR downside to this product is that it does not spread well. You have to use A LOT of product just to evenly cover your face. Whereas with the original primer, you only need one squirt and your done. Since this is a major problem, you'd think the price for it would be cheaper, but it's not.

        This product is ok, definitely should drop the price. You have to put a lot on to cover and dries really fast.

            Being new to this product; I was a bit skeptical at first. After my first time useing it; the next day, I forgot this step. I immediately noticed the difference. It allows my erase paste & BareMinerals to go on super smooth! Plus it keeps my T-zone in check.

                    I don't wear makeup everyday, so I haven't collected a lot of data on this primer. But so far, it seems to lessen the amount of oil that comes to the surface. I can go longer before I have to blot, which is good. It doesn't seem to cause breakouts for me, which is great because my skin tends to be sensitive to new products. I'd stayed away from primers before this one because I didn't want to have an adverse reaction. In addition, the dry areas of my skin have not appeared any drier after using this product.

                      Comments about BareMinerals Combo Control Milky Face Primer:

                      This gave me less oil control than my Glossier Priming Moisturizer (which is a moisturizer). That should tell you how ineffective this was. I applied my moisturizer on one side, this primer on the other side, and the side with this primer ended up being wayyyy oilier than my moisturizer side. Needless to say, I am not going to use this again seeing as it literally did nothing to control oil. This primer feels like a regular/heavy silicone primer, which I am also kind of confused on, since other primers made for oily skin are typically formulated to feel less waxy and silicone-y, and to sink into the skin more. I had high hopes for this, but was really disappointed.
