Combo Control Milky Face Primer

1.0 oz Item 2511420

Find in Store-

bareMinerals Combo Control Milky Face Primer provides the perfect balance to those who need it most - anyone with combination skin or areas with excess oil.

With the effect of a soft focus filter, it absorbs oil in the T-zone and other shiny spots, while maintaining all-important moisture balance, so skin looks hydrated and healthy. This feel-good formula begins as an easy-to-apply milky serum, and dries down to a silky, powdery finish.

Formulated with mineral silica and African tree bark extract to soak up excess oil, Combo Control Milky Face Primer reduces the appearance of pores and blurs skin imperfections. Skin becomes equalized: oil breakthrough is reduced throughout the day, and moisture balance is restored so skin doesn't feel tight. Makeup goes on smoother and lasts longer.

In a consumer test:
  • 90% of women felt their T-zone was more manageable throughout the day
  • 90% of women felt their makeup lasted longer throughout the day
  • 94% of women agreed this primer improved their makeup application

*Based on a US independent consumer study of 30 women.

Benefits:
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Non-comedogenic
  • Oil-free

Clinically shown to instantly mattify shine and absorb oil.
After skincare and before foundation, apply a pea size amount all over the face.

    Comments about BareMinerals Combo Control Milky Face Primer:

    I have oily combo skin and this product is perfect for me! My skin is wack, oily forehead and nose, redness on my chin, and dry around mouth and under my eyes and this completely restored my skin. I would even argue that the redness on my chin is less noticeable after application. I typically use this under matte foundations and its made all of then look like a dream. BUT, use sparingly. On a day when my skin was dry, I used a lot because love the soothing feeling this primer provides, but it made my foundation look like it was sitting on top instead of melted in my skin like it normally does.

    TIP. After applying the primer with your fingers, lightly press over with a sponge to make sure its not gathered in one area

    Make sure you wait some time before applying foundation, (2 mins is fine)

    and use a different sponge for the primer and foundation.

        Comments about BareMinerals Combo Control Milky Face Primer:

        I wanted to like this product, but I found that I needed to put on quite a lot in order to cover my small face.
        It did dry quickly, which may have been part of the issue with having to add more in order to get this spread over my whole face. And I did not find that putting on Foundation was any easier or smoother, no matter is it were a Bare Minerals Foundation, or another brand.

        Then, the times that I used the Combo Control, by the end of day my forehead was a mass of bumps. Breakouts galore. Dimethicone is the second ingredient, and I believe that is my problem. I seem to have this happen with any Bare Minerals primer product that I have tried.

            Comments about BareMinerals Combo Control Milky Face Primer:

            I have horribly oily skin, but the Becca matte primer is just a bit too matte for me. The texture of this Bare Minerals primer seems oily, but it goes on smooth and is actually very light. The primer does not allow oil to shine through, and my makeup lasts much longer than with other primers. I am a big fan!

                Comments about BareMinerals Combo Control Milky Face Primer:

                I normally use the bareminerals original primer for my face, but I decided to give this one a try. The main reason I wanted to try it is I have dry skin on my cheeks and around my nose, but a very oily t-zone. The product as a whole works. It does not make my t-zone any better like it says it will. I do like when I put it on, it wipes away all my dry skin. A MAJOR downside to this product is that it does not spread well. You have to use A LOT of product just to evenly cover your face. Whereas with the original primer, you only need one squirt and your done. Since this is a major problem, you'd think the price for it would be cheaper, but it's not.

                This product is ok, definitely should drop the price. You have to put a lot on to cover and dries really fast.

                    Being new to this product; I was a bit skeptical at first. After my first time useing it; the next day, I forgot this step. I immediately noticed the difference. It allows my erase paste & BareMinerals to go on super smooth! Plus it keeps my T-zone in check.
