    Comments about Lorac Light Source 3-in-1 Illuminating Primer:

    I received this as a sample with my order. I got Dusk and Dawn. Dusk is gold as it looks, but Dawn was my favorite; it has a unicorn-ish purple sheen as a highlighter. It works as a highlighter alone and a moisturizer under makeup

          Really great and illuminating!

          By Sammy

          from East Brunswick, NJ

          Comments about Lorac Light Source 3-in-1 Illuminating Primer:

          This primer is fantastic. It has a sticky consistency so the foundation you put on really adheres to your skin well, and it also gives a glow from within type of look. The reason I took 1 star off is because I notice that I break out around my chin everytime I use this primer. It's not insanely bad breakouts, but it's still annoying.

            I love the dusk one, it's the only one i tried. It has a golden tone to it and it makes your skin glowy and when i use it i feel that i don't even need to put on any other makeup. It's absolutely beautiful and I LOVE IT!!!!

                Comments about Lorac Light Source 3-in-1 Illuminating Primer:

                I am 69 yrs old, so it is not as easy as when I was young to find beauty products that work with my aging skin. Lorac 3 in 1 primer gives me a beautiful, glowing, radiant look that lasts until the end of the day. I use a creme foundation makeup over it and a light touch of mineral powder and them blush. I have tried every primer there is and always go back to Lorac. I keep upping my supply because I am afraid they might discontinue it, as they all do with so many products.

                      Unfortunately, we do not have a definite answer for you on this one. LORAC is not able to comment on a product's effectivness (the spf product) that we do not manufacture. We would suggest consulting with your dermatologist before sun exposure.
