love it...It's ok...I wanted to love this as a new primer, considering how much I'd read about this being a holy grail item for oily/combo-oily skin....I like how it goes on easily and doesn't clog my skin up or anything, however, I'm not sure if it's my foundation that is oily or not but I tend to get a little shiny on the chin and nose which I thought a primer is supposed to help reduce...
What it is:
A lightweight, creamy gel that creates an invisible barrier between skin and makeup to prime your face for color.

What it does:
Worn under foundation, this oil-free Primer creates a smooth, flawless canvas for application, allowing foundation to glide on easily and stay fresh and color-true for hours. Ideal for oily, sensitive, and acne-prone skin types, it helps mattify and control oil. It’s the first step to Laura’s “Flawless Face.” This dermatologist-tested, non-comedogenic product contains the antioxidant green tea extract; vitamins A, C, and E; and cucumber that helps sooth and refresh the skin.

What else you need to know:
Just as a painter primes a canvas, Foundation Primer—the original—was created by Laura Mercier in 1995 to prime the skin. After creating the industry’s first primer, she “reinvented” it and made another version perfect for oilier, overactive skins and customers who prefer a less emollient texture. She added oil-controlling ingredients for a semi-matte, long-wear finish. The colorless gel acts as a buffer to outside elements, while vitamins A, C, and E act as antioxidants and protect the skin from the harmful, aging effects of the environment. It also contains high water-content and addresses surface dehydration around active blemishes.

nice !...my fav...Then I get a oil slick breakthrough........the problems is the next morning my face was irritated :( and it has broken-out, I though well maybe it is due to something else, and I tried this primer again a few days later after my skin recovered a little bit... the next morning same thing :( If you do not have sensitive skin, I recommend this product because it really does wonders to the way make-up looks and lasts... I am still in search of a primer that won't break me out or irritate my sensitive skin!!!
What it is:
An amazing preservative-free foundation primer that's great for all skin types.

What it does:
Developed to combat flaky dryness, rough patches, fine lines, excess oil, enlarged pores, and uneven texture, this mineral-infused, satin-finish formula glides on seamlessly with no tacky feel to provide a skin-smoothing complexion before you apply foundation. For added age-defying power, it is infused with soothing plant extracts, antioxidants, and nourishing vitamins C and E.
