      Absolutely amazing primer! it doesn't melt off my face, keeps my makeup long lasting ALL DAY! So easy to apply, I only use a pea sized amount for my entire face. Doesn't cause me to break out and work with different types of foundations so well! Best primer and the only one I've been buying for 2 years!

        Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

        Was in the hunt for a new primer. Came across this one...texture is smooth and easy to apply but...I feel like it doesn't stand up to its name and what it does. It says it's good for mateffying but it does the opposite...it makes my face oily and by the end of the day my foundation in my t-zone is almost non existent since it does nothing to mattefy of keep my t-zone oil free

              I have terrible issues with my face. Everything seems to bother it and it was time I started using a primer. I can't tell you how any I tried. I went to Ultra and I told them exactly what my issue was and she said this is what I needed. It feels so good when you put it on and I have had absolutely no trouble with it. I will never even try another primer!

                I didn't think this product was actually doing anything before I took with and without pictures. My gigantic pores, though still not invisible :(, are much less obvious with this product. Both photos are take just after fresh makeup in the morning - after toner, moisturizer, (primer), foundation and setting powder.

                      I know everyone's skin is different, but this primer made me break out worse than anything I've ever tried. It gave me really bad cystic acne after using it for two weeks. it's been almost a month since I stopped using it and I'm still trying to recover.

                          The primer can be used under any foundation type or alone. We would advise you to please let the primer set onto your skin and dry a little before applying your powder foundation. We hope this helps!

                          LORAC does not test our final products on animals and we are not aware of any animal testing performed by any manufacturer with whom LORAC does business. LORAC does not condone the testing of any cosmetic products on animals and asks all suppliers to support this point of view and all suppliers state that they do so. LORAC cannot warrant or certify that all suppliers who say they do not test on animals in fact do not test on animals. Additionally, notwithstanding the statements of suppliers to LORAC, LORAC has no way of knowing what the "suppliers of the suppliers" are doing. Also, LORAC is only distributed in the United States and does not sell in China or any countries that require animal testing. LORAC does not use a third party to test on animals.

It is suitable for all skin types and should not cause breakouts; however, if you are looking to prevent breakouts, we do suggest using an alternative method in addition to the use of POREfection® Mattifying Face Primer.
