Interesting product


I am on the fence about this one. I really like all of the other products I have tried from this brand but I am still trying this one out. It takes a lot to cover the face or it is not smooth, however when it is on my face feels fantastic. I have noticed that when I use certain lotions beforehand they do not mix and my entire face gets crumbly all over. It is definitely a use only the same brand product. Not a bad thing, just something to know going in.





This product makes your skin feel like velvet.

Worst product and customer servcie


I have recently purchased this product and it unfortunately it clogged up all my pores and caused breakouts all over my face. Had a terrible customer service experience when I complained about the product and tried to get it exchanged. Do not recommend !



I consistently buy this product.


I think this helps minimize my pores and it offers some decent shine control. I especially love that it has SPF.





I love, love this primer under my makeup or just by itself! It smooths out my skin, smells great and makes my makeup look amazing.

Dried out my skin


I loved this product at first. It was exactly what I was looking for- light coverage with spf 30. Unfortunately, it made my chin and jaw area flake. When I put it on it looked great, but then a few hours later my skin was dry and flaky. I am disappointed because when I first put it on it really made my skin look great. I eventually took it off and had to moisturize and used my powder instead. So sad this didn't work out for me.

Good primer


I've used a lot of primers. At first, I did not like this primer because of the smell. I got used to it and finished the tube. Then I moved on to another primer. While using this other primer, I started missing the skinperfect primer. I realized that it did a good job. Since then I've ordered another. :)



Very expensive for a small amount of good product


I like this product. It covers lightly but nicely and adds some good light cover. But it is rediculously expensive.

it's like applying oil+sand on your skin


I rarely write reviews, but I can't help it now. this product has been Recommended by a skin therapist, after I had the bio peel. it does nothing to the skin. actually my skin looks dull and greyish. when I apply it, it doesn't blend ( no matter how much moisturiser I apply before ), it's thick and have the consistency of oil mixed with sand. I can't return in, I trusted the lady and I have started the recipient. I am deeply disappointed, especially because it does cost a lot of money.

Hi, I am 31 years old and live in Victoria, Australia. I love this product and would like to know if this can be used instead of a face sunscreen due its SPF Broad Spectrum 30+. I like wearing it on its own as sometimes that is all I need for my skin but I worry about the sun protection element. I reapply again in the afternoon, and spend a lot of time outside in the sun where i wear a hat. I want to keep my routine as minimal as possible and am not looking to add another product. If it is not sufficient I would like to replace the product or add on a foundation/tinted moisturiser to support its spectrum. Kind Regards, Carla Beslagic


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can specifically use Skin Perfect Primer SPF 30 as your UV protection.


Hi! I am 24, and have combination skin, with large pores and uneven tone - will this product be suitable for me and is it ok to use the age smart? I would like a primer that has spf, which is why I am leaning towards this one Thanks


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You may prefer Hydrablur Primer. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Hello, I'm 28 years old and I have oily and sensitive skin. Is this product/ primer suitable for my age and my skin type? Many thanks, Tatiana


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You may prefer Hydrablur primer. Kind Regards, Bernadette


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 Holly, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Sheer Tint SPF 20 as a final step on top of Hydrablur. It will offer more coverage. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Can/should this be used on the eye area prior to using concealer?


Hi Karen, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Multivitamin Power Firm OR Total Eye Care SPF 15 under concealer. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I have very fair skin. I read that this has a tint would it be too dark for very fair skin? Usually in makeup I use the shade alabaster so I wanted to make sure the tint in this would not be too dark. Thanks


Hi Kitty, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This is a neutral tone for light to medium skin tones. Perhaps you would prefer Sheer Tint Light. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hi. Is this product safe for use during pregnancy?


Hello Katherine, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This product does not contain Salicylic Acid or Retinol. Therefore, it is safe to use during pregnancy. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hello! Can Skinperfect primer be used on a very oily skin?


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. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hi there. I would like to know the ingredients as far as zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide that are in this product?


Hi Silvana, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Skin Perfect Primer SPF 30 contains Titanium Dioxide (4%), Zinc Oxide (14%). Kind Regards, Bernadette

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


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, Bernadette
