    Bought this product before going to the coast. Have really oily skin and was afraid my face would break out while on vacation. This product was lightweight and worked well under my makeup.

    Horrible

    By Tara

    from Kinsman, Ohio

    Comments about BareMinerals Blemish Remedy Mattifying Prep Gel:

    I got this primer with high expectations. With it being part of their blemish line, I assumed it would do great with my oily, acne prone skin. Boy was I wrong. Within two days of using this, I was getting big, painful, cyst like acne on my cheeks and forehead, along with regular breakouts all over. I will be returning for a refund. After a week of not using it at all, my face has cleared up and the cysts went away. Don't waste your money.

    Comments about BareMinerals Blemish Remedy Mattifying Prep Gel:

    I was browsing Ulta in person for a concealer when approached by an employee offering help. I let her know what I was looking for, and while she was not entirely certain which products to recommend based on my preferences, she was able to redirect me to a Bare Minerals employee who tested out a few products from their Blemish Remedy line. Before, I only used a simple powder foundation. This prep gel, when matched with their Blemish Remedy concealer and foundation, makes a noticeable difference. My skin tends to be very dry, and I have had issues with break outs since middle school until I found my ideal cleansing routine and makeup this year. While this product is more on the expensive side, it does wonders for coverage when it comes to acne, scars, and redness. If you're still not sure - stop by a nearby Ulta Store and see if you can try out the Blemish Remedy line before purchasing.

    Least favorite primer I have ever used

    By BK

    from Green Bay, WI

    Comments about BareMinerals Blemish Remedy Mattifying Prep Gel:

    I had high hopes for this primer as I have acne-prone oily skin. The woman at Ulta pointed me in this direction after discussing my skin type and concerns.

    Right off the bat I was less than satisfied as it did not really create a smooth canvas. It did not help "fill in the pores" and honestly seemed to make the pores on my nose stand out more once the blemish remedy powder foundation was put on.

    It does not help mattify my skin, at least not after an hour or two. Honestly, my face looks and feels like there is a layer of oil on my face. I don't nearly that oily without any primer. The primer made my skin 5x more oily than normal. You can see this in the attached picture.

    Which leads me to my next issue with it. Because my face became so oily, the foundation did not stay in place. It collected in the creases around my nose and would almost "melt" off my face.

    I am extremely disappointed and will never purchase this primer again.

    It feels so light on the skin. It's not greasy. It almost makes your face feel better than right after you wash it. Love it. I'll be a long time user.

      This product works well at first, but after just a few hours my t-zone is oily again. For how much this costs, I would not recommend it.

            • Q:

              I have oily/acne prone skin. I stay far away from products that have silicon in them due to a silicon-based primer breaking me out like crazy in the past. This product claims to help blemishes and keep oily skin matte. Will this product break me out and why/why not?

              I use the blemish remedy foundation. I am looking into purchasing a primer. Would this one be better or the Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer? I have oily skin/prone to breakouts.
