Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How it Works

Wearing this base is like traveling around with your own professional lighting crew: Light-diffusing microspheres create a soft-focus effect, diminishing imperfections. Nylon-12 fills in fine lines and wrinkles, vitamin E reduces the formation of free radicals, and SPF 30 shields skin from UVA and UVB rays. Finally, moisturizing squalane delivers antioxidants and protects against additional environmental damage.

How to Use

After moisturizing, gently apply to your face with your fingers. The lightweight formula goes on white, but is translucent once it settles.

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: OCTINOXATE 7.0 % OCTISALATE 5.0 % ZINC OXIDE 8.7 %

INACTIVE INGREDIENTS: WATER (AQUA) BUTYLENE GLYCOL OCTYLDODECYL NEOPENTANOATE DIMETHICONE STEARETH-20 STEARETH-2 STEARYL ALCOHOL GLYCERYL STEARATE PEG-100 STEARATE CETEARETH-6 SQUALANE NYLON-12 MICROCRYSTALLINE CELLULOSE CELLULOSE GUM XANTHAN GUM SODIUM POLYACRYLATE TOCOPHERYL ACETATE TRIETHOXYCAPRYLYLSILANE ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN PHENOXYETHANOL o-CYMEN-5-ol

Good primer
SampledPurchased

Light, holds make-up, allows me to keep my light foundation in place for a few hours longer. A little heavy in the summer, but I prefer to wear nothing then anyway.

May Work Well on the Face...
Sampled

I have been using this on my eyelids as a primer for them and it works okay but I have not been able to use it on my face as the sample I received was too tiny to allow that.

Never have heard of this before.
Sampled

I received this as a sample and I didn't know such a thing even existed! It does not make my face feel heavy after putting it on which is always a concern. My make up stayed on all day which is a plus for me. I would buy this product.

Love It Under Makeup!
SampledPurchased

This is a great primer for foundation. It goes on like a lotion. Let your face dry completely before applying foundation, and your look will stay fresh all day. I also loved that this product has SPF 30 in it.

A little goes a long way!
Sampled

I have been using this sample in my travel bag. It goes on smooth and I love that is has SPF 30 (my regular primer does not). A little goes a long way. I would consider purchasing this primer when my regular primer is gone.

Great primer
Purchased

I received this as a sample in my Birchbox and ended up buying it. I didn't realize what a difference using a primer makes! MAKE really kept my skin oil free throughout the day, and it helped my makeup stay put. I ran out a few months ago and would love to buy it again, but it's been out of stock! I ended up switching to Pur Minerals primer (also Birchbox) and love it almost more-it's also paraben-free if you like that sort of thing, which I do. I would, however, buy MAKE primer again.

Nice primer
Purchased

A great every day primer and sunscreen to wear. Works better as a primer for powdery concealer. Would recommend to anyone looking for an on the go primer.

Eye makeup stays put
Purchased

I always seem to have trouble with my eye makeup not wanting to stay put....I started using this when I got a sample in my box and it fixed the issue! No more creasing, fading, or feathering. Yay!

LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
Purchased

I have seriously tried 20 different primers since I've been old enough to know what primer is. MAKE really keeps your face matted so that you don't have any oil, it has SPF to protect your skin, and it makes your makeup stay fresh all day long. I definitely recommend you use this product

nice spf

Skin protection is a big thing, and this helps with that. I love that it protects my skin from UV damage. I have used it alone and under foundation.
