Some of us like silicones, some of us don’t…if you do, then I have a great primer for you, especially if you also have oily skin. The Dermaquest Perfecting Primer is a terrific primer that not only preps your skin for makeup, it also absorbs excess oil throughout the day so makeup looks fresh and stays put all day long.
I really like silicone-based primers. They help make a barrier to water and air, protecting skin from the environment. The Dermaquest Perfecting Primer gives my skin a truly lovely smooth, satiny finish that is great for makeup application. I know that some find silicones to be too protective of skin, trapping dirt and oil and then causing breakouts. Dermaquest does a good job of counteracting this issue with ingredients that actually absorb oil so it is less likely to irritate sensitive skin.
The primer is in an airless pump bottle and is on the dry side. No need to wait after application because it immediately smooths over fine lines and wrinkles and creates a perfect canvas. There’s no fragrance either so if you have slightly sensitive skin that has had reactions to silicones before you might want to give this one a spin to see if it works. You can also mix some of the primer with your foundation or your moisturizer to create a smooth finish.

It seems like an oxymoron, doesn’t it? Cleansing oil. My face is already…September 17, 2019
