                    I had been using Bare Minerals primer, which I really like but again pricey. So I purchased this one. Why I didn't read the ingredients at the store I don't know but it has parabens. I am health conscious to an extent. There is no reason to have these ingredients in any product now a days. So I immediately returned. Sticking with Bare Minerals for now.

                    • Q:

                      My face gets both dry and oily. Will this product make my skin even more oily? Should I try the matte version? Also, is the matte primer prone to drying skin out due to the salicylic acid?

                        This primer is formulated for all skin types including oily skin.

                        However, if you are seeking an oil-free formula, you may prefer ULTA Matte Prime (Item #: 2220410), which features an oil-free formula with salicylic acid and mattifying powders to combat excess oil and blemishes and to control shine:

                        This product is un-tinted and provides no coverage. It is designed to be used under your foundation to reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles. You may prefer Flawless Prime, which features a neutralizing green tint to minimize skin redness and even skin tone:

                        It could be that you are applying too much. Try applying just a pea size amount to the entire face - this should help correct the issue! :-)

                    • Q:

                      I am 55 yrs old and have been using Bare Minerals for 3 years now. I need to find a less expensive primer, I was using Bareminerals Prime time foundation primer, but it is costly now with my senior budget. This worked well for me, I have combination skin and redness and no wrinkles yet, oh and I have very very sensitive skin. I tried a new night time moisturizer and my skin broke out terribly to it. My question: what do you suggest for primer and moisturizer too?

                        This product is well-suited for those with sensitive skin. It features a fragrance-free formula and contains soothing green tea extract. If you are seeking a moisturizer to pair with this primer, the Radiant Skin Daily Face Moisturizer is an excellent choice (formulated for all skin types):
