MAKE Face Primer SPF 30

Forget diamonds—SPF is a girl’s true best friend. Dermatologists agree—applying sunscreen is the number one thing you can do for your skin to keep it healthy and looking young. We were thrilled to discover this corrective primer, which delivers a flawless complexion and protects against UV damage. Use it as a base for foundation, or on its own for all-day-long defense.

I felt meh about this product, I do not feel like it primed my face for make up, nor gave me any sort of benefit. Made my skin feel oily...

This primer made my face feel so oily! Definitely a no-go!

Didn't do much for me
Sampled

I have never used a primer before. I didn't notice any difference using this primer than just using my regular make up. It just felt like I was putting on sunscreen. I think it made me break out a little too.

Too creamy
Sampled

I was expecting this primer to be like others. The other primers I've tried have felt very silicon-esque, allowing the make-up to glide on over top of the silicon film. I was surprised to find the texture of this one to be more like a moisturizer. It felt like it seeped into my skin like a moisturizer would and didn't leave a smooth finish on my skin on which to apply foundation. If you don't like the silicon smoothness of other primers, then maybe this one is for you.

Why?

I mean, this was fine, but I don't see why I need it. I use tinted moisturizer and makeup (concealer, foundation, powder, etc) and my face looks just fine. Just seems like an added step in my daily routine.

I've never used a primer before, but I didn't feel like this did anything, I'm sure it works as a sunscreen but I can get sunscreen for my face that works for a LOT cheaper.

Not for me
Sampled

I have tried many primers and this has been my least favorite. the product is very thick and my face became oily within a few hours. after the workday, I had to wash it off because I feared a breakout. I am not prone to breakouts and have semi oily skin. this was much to thick and heavy for my skin - definitely not for me.

Not what I need in a primer
Sampled

This primer seems more like just suncreen. It is thick and doesn't have any kind of silky feel that I like in a primer. It smells like straight sunscreen as well, which was unpleasant. I already have SPF in my moisturizer and I really don't need extra in my primer as well. I live in the PNW and 8 months out of the year I could be just fine with 0 SPF, so I don't want to load my skin down with extra chemicals I don't need. This is 100% no go for me.

Not the best primer
Sampled

I was disappointed with the primer and felt that it wasn't as effective at smoothing out the texture of my skin and allowing for a more even application of foundation on top of it. I will probably stick with my current favorite from Bare Escentuals.

Pasty film on darker complexions
Sampled

As an African-American woman, I've had better luck with clear matte primers than white ones. I don't like the white film that it leaves to my skin and while it isn't thick I still felt like I could feel it drying. Not for me.
