        This product is amazing for deep visible pores, pockmarks, and acne scarring. It blurs imperfections and fills lines and holes. I am literally in love with this. Not to mention that it's mattifying. I'm extremely oily, and sensitive, and I have pores that you can see from space. This product HIDES EVERYTHING!

          This product is excellent. It keeps your foundation in place and looking smooth. I'm starting to get those fine lines by my eyes and before this product by the ins of the day my foundation was almost highlighting it instead of hiding it. Not anymore!

                  This primer works so well, that I have forgotten to apply foundation because it looks like I already have it on! You just can't get better than that! I use it daily and buy another tube as soon as I open one, so I won't run out; if I could give it 10 stars, I would!!!

                        This formula has not been tested for use on the eyes. However, you may want to try our Behind The Scenes Eye Primer for your eye area. The eye primer can be purchased separately or a mini size primer comes with all full size LORAC PRO and Unzipped Palettes.

                        A:

                        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.
