skinperfect primer spf30

Smooth away fine lines, brighten and prime for flawless skin and to prep for make-up application. Velvety silicones combine with Soy Protein to even out skin texture, creating an instantly smooth surface. Natural minerals provide a neutral tint to balance skin tone and enhance luminosity and radiance. A potent peptide helps improve skin firmness, as sunscreens shield against sun damage. White Tea polyphenols inhibit collagen damage by destructive MMPs and free radicals. Wear alone over your moisturizer for visible smoothness and luminosity, or after moisturizer application and before foundation to help fill fine lines for a lasting make-up finish.

Skinperfect Primer

By 

from Castro Valley

Verified Buyer

Comments about skinperfect primer spf30:

I have used this product for the past five years. It is a great product to use prior to putting on your foundation. It helps smooth your skin and makes it look flawless prior to putting on your foundation. I switch between both liquid foundation and power foundation. It looks great with both. It also adds the great benefit of sunscreen. Some times on a no make up kind of day I just use the primer and it looks great! Love this product.

Best primer, but can't be used alone on darker skin tones

By 

from Portland, OR

Comments about skinperfect primer spf30:

Let me start by saying that this is hands down the best primer I've ever used. I have true combination skin. My T-zone is an oil slick, but my cheeks and chin area are like the Sahara. This primer makes my oily T-zone nice and matte and I only need to blot excess oil once per day instead of multiple times before I started using this product. I love that the primer glides on my skin and it makes my face feel smooth as whipped butter. I'm taking a star away though because this product cannot be used by itself for darker skin tones (ie, dark skinned black people, darker toned Hispanics, Indians, etc.). I'm a late 30s black woman and the product by itself makes me look incredibly ashy, gray, and like I'm literally dead. That problem is immediately solved though when I put on my foundation. It would be great if Dermalogica could create this same primer in darker shades as opposed to just "neutral" as I would like to be able to just use the primer on days when I want very light coverage and when I don't have time on my hands. There's no way I would go out in public without foundation on over this. The problematic one color shade aside, this is a fantastic primer that makes me matte without looking dull and keeps me from looking shiny throughout the day.

Love this and has SPF in it

By 

from Selden, N.Y.

Verified Buyer

Comments about skinperfect primer spf30:

This is a great smooth primer and the best part is it has SPF in it and it's the good kind of SPF not the kind that can genetically change your jeans which is the most common SPF out there. Do your research on SPF before buying anything with SPF in it

  • Q:

    Hello! How does this product compare to the hydroblur primer? I like the hydroblur but sometimes I want a bit more coverage. I don't wear makeup but want a smooth and even complexion. I currently use all the products... precleanse, cleanse/microfoliant, toner, phyto or serum (am vs pm), dynamic skin moisturizer/super rich (am vs pm), then hydroblur (am only)... (and eye cream).

      Hi Natalia,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Skin Perfect Primer SPF 30 is ideal for mature, oil-dry or sensitive skin. If you are very oily, you may prefer Hydrablur primer.

    How do I know if I should be using the Hydrablur primer - or the Skinperfect primer?

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Skin Perfect Primer SPF 30 is for a mature or oil dry skin. It contains SPF so it offers UV protection. It comes in one neutral tone that is flattering on most skin tones.

      Hydrablur Primer has no tint and no SPF. It is for normal, combination, oily or dehydrated skin. Since it does not contain tint, it is universally flattering.

      Kind Regards,

  • Q:

    Hello - I prefer to use a sun screen every day (even living in the North East.) Can the primer act as my primary sunscreen, even on hot sunny days or must I use another sunscreen product for protection? I am 53 years of age if that makes any difference to the use of products. Thank you!
