”I love the oil free line from Laura Mercier! I used to have extremely bad breakouts until I started using her products and now I will only get one every once in a while. The primer makes my face feel fresh and helps the tinted moisturizer stick for a longer period of time. I love this product!”

This is another best selling product from Laura Mercier. I have this in my kit and I use this on clients with normal skin types. I love how this spreads easily on the skin. It preps the skin by making sure that the skin is hydrated. It also helps lengthen the longevity of the make up.

I had fresh face all day long when I started using this primer. It made the tinted moisturizer adhere on my skin longer, gave me a dewy finish all day and made my skin look so smooth. I love that it's so easy to apply, dries fast and instantly makes your face matte. And best of all, it didn't cause any irritation on my skin!

When my daughter introduced me to the power of using face primers to make my make up stay in put all day long, this Foundation Primer (Oil Free) from Laura Mercier was the very first primer that I purchased. I like that it is very easy to use and it is free from silicone.

I love all the Laura Mercier skin primers but this one is definitely my fave out of all of them. I have oily skin and this primer really mattify my skin in an instant. I like how thin the consistency of this primer is. It goes on super smooth on my skin and it adds longevity to my make up.

Best Primer

This by far is the best primer I have used. Before giving birth, I used to have really oily skin and most makeup would cause break outs. But after using this, I found my perfect match - no pimples after putting on makeup, and I lost that shiny looking nose hours into day.

Great Product

So as you can see under skin type, I have an oily skin. I have been doing a lot of research online and reading a lot of reviews for different brands. I wasn't able to choose and buy because I was able to get one for free (Thanks ma!). I like this product because it feels light and most importantly, I didn't have any breakouts so it's a two-thumbs up for me!!!
