      From an acne stand point? It's okay.

      By Nicole

      from Oregon

      Comments about BareMinerals Blemish Remedy Mattifying Prep Gel:

      It's an alright primer and doesn't irritate my skin but it doesn't make a good base for makeup, especially the blemish remedy powder foundation or the barePro. It's kind of just an extra skin care step which I guess is why the call it a "prep gel" and not a primer.

        I using this as my primer before applying bare minerals matte powder foundation and mineral veil.

        Note:Prior to applying I use Origins oil free Dr. Weil (sp?) Moistirizer after washing with Cetaphyl normal to oil skin face wash.
        At night time, I wash with Neutrogenas oil free acne scrub with salicylic acid (benzoyl burns my skin), and apply Origins oil free Nightamins as my moisturizer.

        The combo of all of these keeps my skin smooth and acne free. It was early last year I began using all these in this regiment and if i ever run out of one, i will break out.

        All that to say so thankful to have found this primer! It is a must have for me and my oily, cystic acne prone skin!

          Not many primers help with oily skin, but this one impressed me! It's a gel instead of creamy or pasty, and feels light and smooth once applied. I wear my foundation over it and haven't had any blending problems. It keeps oil under control which is all I expected after trying many many primers.

                      Hello Georgette,

                      We recommend using the Prep Step first if you are using the Blemish Remedy Foundation. Please note that Prep Step and BareMinerals Blemish Remedy Mattifying Prep Gel are both primers, and therefore both do not need to be used at the same time unless you would like the added SPF protection from the Prep Step.

                      The BareMinerals Blemish Remedy Mattifying Prep Gel does not claim to minimize large pores. This product would work best as it dries, and also would be considered a great priming base for foundations and powders.
