    Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

    After using Benefit's Porefessional for year, I felt like I needed a change. The clerk recommended a few other primers, but after testing them, I didn't like the way they felt. I sampled Lorac's on my own. It's great. I have larger pores and it does a great job of filling those in. I would recommend it for daily use, as well as going out.

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

      I have very oily skin and huge pores, this primer doesn't help that. The only thing it helps is it makes my make up last. I sometimes put setting stray down before this product just so it doesnt blend/mix with my oils. Looks great for my pores until about 30 mins after I apply it, then it makes them look normal. But it makes my makeup slide right off (when I want it to). I'd only recommend for my pore-less dry-skinned friends.

                    • 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.

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.
