      Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

      I am a couple months into using this primer and I am in love! I have an oily T-zone as well as some larger pores around my nose. This keeps me oil free all day and it does a good job of filling in those pores without over drying my face. Great for under makeup.

      I rub it in between my fingers and put it on my nose and under eyes to minimize the look of my pores. It is so smooth and easy to apply. It lasts a long time because you don't need very much.

      simply the best

      By Nora

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

      Best primer ever. POREFessional from Benefit is too overrated. I've noticed that LORAC doesn't come up with cute packaging but the quality is always there. Maybe other brands should focus on that. Best primer ever and God knows I've tried them all!

      Best primer

      By Alexandra

      Comments about Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer:

      I love this primer. It helps set well my makeup and dries immediately after I apply, which i can apply my makeup immediately. Helps my foundation dry quickly. I like it because I can apply my powder sooner. By the end of the day, my makeup is not funny however my nose is oily. But it has nothing to do with the primer, I have combination skin and this happens with or without makeup.

            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.
