    It's ok, blends well and non-greasy, but it doesn't cover pores much. Didn't make me break out, but not really worth the money.

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

      I had high hopes for this product cause of the price but I was let down.The only plus side was that it filled in my pores and was a soft silicone base but I am a REALLY oily girl and this did nothing to stop my oils to coming to the surface, I actually felt like it made me more shiny.

          This primer is amazing ! I decided to try something new because nothing has been working and by the end of the day my makeup is sliding everywhere and it begins to separate on my nose. I use a dime sized amount and I feel like it's sinks into my skin and doesn't few greasy and my makeup goes on smooth and lasts all day. I tried this primer with two different foundations and it still pulled through! Worth the money.

                    • Q:

                      I am 64 years old. My chin area has black heads and pores. I have been using Lorac POREfection foundation for a year now. Still notice pores/black heads through this foundation. Have tried many options to rid these pores but nothing helps. When I was in store in Texas, they said to use charcoal mask? bought but haven't tried yet. Any suggestions? Will this face primer help?

                        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.

                        POREfection® Mattifying Face Primer is intended help achieve a poreless-looking, smooth, matte finish and long-lasting makeup wear. 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.
