Great for Oily skinned Gals

By The Cherokee Gypsy (Youtube)

from Smyrna, Tennessee

Comments about BECCA First Light Priming Filter:

I own the first light, and the back light priming filters. The backlight is more "dewy and heavy" than the first light, so if your dry to normal skin, then you will more than likely enjoy the backlight versus the first light. Ever since I have owned the first light, it's the only primer I use now before makeup. Since I'm oily, I actually "pat" this primer into my skin, instead of rubbing it in. Product seem to seep better into your oily skin if you pat and not rub. This first light is so lightweight, smells amazing, helps even out my skintone and pores, and helps my foundation apply beautifully. I love how it doesn't feel heavy, and gives me such a beautiful glow even before I apply my foundation. It's not heavy at all, and actually has good ingredients. It doesn't make my oily, acne prone skin break out, so this is DEFINATELY worth the purchase.

    Comments about BECCA First Light Priming Filter:

    First I have oily\combination skin so when I received this product I was not sure about it due to my face has about a shin to it already. I do like the purple tint the prime does bring but I have to keep blotting my face to reduce oil. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.

    great for on its own !

    By carol

    from texas

    Comments about BECCA First Light Priming Filter:

    I LOVE this!!! but there is a but to it, it does make your skin glowy and beautiful however this really only works on it's own. In my opinion this product is best when you don't wear foundation on top because once you do the glow is covered. I wear this on its own with a bit of cream contour, a bit of blush and some lipstick. I get a healthy glowy look to my skin without having to wear much makeup. I also did notice when I wore foundation it would get a bit patchy. ive bought about 5 bottles so far and will continue to purchase because I do like how it looks and for days when I don't want to wear make up this works perfect!

      Comments about BECCA First Light Priming Filter:

      I love this product! It really brightens up the skin under foundation. However it might be breaking me out. I now have tiny little pimples all around my chin and forehead. I'm not sure what else would've cause this but I'm gonna let it clear up and see if it happens again. Besides that I love the product and didn't wanna deduct any stars in case it happens to not be the primer that is breaking me out.

      Comments about BECCA First Light Priming Filter:

      I've been looking for this primer for a long time. It matches all of my needs. It's very hydrating, it makes me skin glow, it keeps my makeup on for a longer period of time, and it smells like lemons. I love it. Also, it's purple. Amazing.

          Smells great. Not too thick, but great consistency. Got it as a sample and totally am buying full size.

          Like this because it's not too sparkly - just natural but super-polished and makes your skin look amazing. Recommend!

          Smells citrusy and yummy

          By Sam

          from North Carolina

          Comments about BECCA First Light Priming Filter:

          I loveeeee this primer. Makes my skin feel very soft and smooth. I have very dry skin and this just does wonders for my face. It has a slight citrus smell, so if you are sensitive to that, this might not be for you, but it's not overpowering at all. I will definitely purchase again!

            Comments about BECCA First Light Priming Filter:

            I've used so many different Primers over the past few years and Becca First Light is my absolute favorite!! I bought it about 8 months ago and fell in love with the healthy, illuminating glow that it brings to my skin. I love having a hydrating glow to my face! I always put my moisturizer on first (set for 10 minutes), then put on the Becca First Light Primer (Let that set for a couple minutes), and finally I put on my foundation (usually Este Lauder & Jouer). The Primer makes my foundation go on so smoothly and last for 12+ hours. I also notice that I use less foundation, when using this Primer.

            This is a FANTASTIC PRIMER!!!!!

            Oh, the Primer smells wonderful!!! It smells light and refreshing!!

            Definitely recommend giving this a try.
