    Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

    I have oily and acne prone skin, so I try to be super careful as to what I put on my skin. I was only using a travel/sample size of this stuff and it made me break out SO bad. It left my face inflamed and gross. :(

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

      Not impressed with this. I much prefer Makeup Forevers primers. It does not go on smoothly without some work. I have tried drugstore primers that are better and this was not cheap. I have used about half the bottle and won't be finishing it. Would not recommend. The one plus is that it does not cause breakouts.

                  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.

                  A:

                  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.
