    I have to admit I was skeptical when the Manager at Ulta suggested this because of the texture. I have oily skin and I honestly say this is a great primer.

      I am obsessed! I've used other primers but the result was always the same, my oily skin would cause make up to just fall off, literally would slide off my skin. Not this product! I put it on at 9 am come 4 pm it's still going strong with the exception of still having to use blotters on my nose.

              Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

              I have fallen in love with this primer! It's super easy to use and a little goes a long way, so it is good value for the price. I love that it's free of oil, parabens, and fragrances. It has a little salicylic acid in it, which I love since I'm acne-prone, but it may not be the best choice for sensitive skin (although the package does say its good for all skin types). Goes on and comes off easily, leaves my skin feeling clean and clear, and protects it well from foundation. I don't notice a lot of difference in the appearance of my pores, but it certainly helps the overall smoothness of my complexion.

              NOT AS ADVERTISED IN SAMPLE PRODUCT

              from Kalispell mt

              Verified Buyer

              Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

              I got the sample size from a friend and loved it. Went in to buy a full size when I ran out and the consistency and feel of the two are no where near the same! The sample has a gel like texture and really did a great job of matifying the face and let's makeup wear longer. The full size however looks and feels like straight oil. I've tried it a few times just to give it a decent shot and it dose not do the same thing/it dosnt mattify or extend the life of the make up like the other one... Very disappointing

                        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.
