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.

Not for Me

This primer left my face oily and greasy even when I intially put it on. As the day went on my face looked greasy and I constantly had to blot my face....so gross! I have combination/oily skin.

More sunscreen than primer
Sampled

I was not a fan of this primer sample. It went on like the goopy white sunscreen of my childhood leaving a white tint over the application area (which is difficult to achieve on my pale, pale skin.) Any flake of skin or hair that gets in its way is left with a bright white ring around it and even after those are smoothed away I was not happy with the way my foundation went on over it. It made my skin feel sticky and nothing went on as smoothly a sit should have post-primer.

Not wild about it
Sampled

I'm probably in the minority, but I haven't ever noticed a big difference when I use primer. At least not enough to justify buying it.

Too much like sunscreen, not enough like primer
Sampled

This primer was SUPER thick. It felt like sunscreen in terms of its consistency and application. Most primers I have tried give you a velvety/smooth skin surface, but this one felt more sticky/rough. I found it too heavy for use and also not moisturizing.

sunscreen???
Sampled

I have many face products that have a high SPF and i thought all companies have found a way to make them feel and smell normal. this product however feels and smells just like a child's super strength sunscreen. it is a little tacky and smells like a bottle of water babies.

Lightweight
Sampled

This primer is ok, lightweight and not greasy. I do like that it has SPF, but the foundation I use already has SPF so this isn't really a product that I need.

Made me breakout

While this product does its job as a primer and helped keep my makeup on, I noticed my face would breakout after each use so I ended up having to throw the product away. If you have acne prone skin I wouldn't recommend this product.

ok

I have been wanting to try this face primer for a while. It seemed a little heavy, and does not work well under foundation at all.

I wanted to like it...

I liked the way the product worked - filled in the lines, had an spf and stayed all day. However, after a couple of uses, my skin did not like it. Stopped using it.

Not the Best for ME.

This product made my face break out terribly. I love the MAKE brand but this primer left my face feeling oily and did not help hold my make up all day long. I won't be purchasing this product.
