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.

great product


Great primer and if you want to not wear makeup or have a light look this is perfect. I do find the shade can be a bit red or pink but could be my skin as that's my undertone. I do love the hydroblur primer better but this one is great too!

Nice, perfect to use instead of make up actually


The color blends in the skin so well I would say I didn't put on anything until I clean up and then I see the tint in the cotton. However the skin tone is clearly nicer, minor imperfections are subtly wiped away. It's perfect to use instead of make up if you want a very natural look, in summer when it's hot (and this has spf so...) or also if you always have the feeling that make up dries up your skin and you can pass without it some times. It won't cover of course major imperfections, but I think it's not its purpose anyhow. Like it!

Skinperfect Primer


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.

This primer is just amazing! I use after my skincare routine and before the sheer tint. Gives a lovely glowing skin look!

The best primer on the market


This product is an absolute game changer. I find I no longer have to use foundation or if i do very little. This product makes my skin look radiant and I can leave the house with no makeup on, the spf is an added bonus too. Highly recommend this product!



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


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.

Nice product


I like be this primer and finally splurged on it after using up a sample. It's very pricey but a great product.



Best Foundation


I love this product! It's like silk on your skin. Smooth and like, I no longer wear foundation. I simply re-apply whenever I need a touch-up.



Best primer ever


Best primer I've ever used.

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

Is it good foe oily t Zone to control that oil excess?


Hi Inna, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. If you have oily skin, you might prefer Hydrablur Primer. Kind Regards, Bernadette

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!


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. We recommend Protection 50 Sport SPF 50 for out door activities. However, the primer can be your daily SPF for UV protection. Kindly, Bernadette

I'm looking to purchase this primer as well as a moisturizer. Which Dermalogica moisturizer would go best w/ this primer?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. A little goes a long way. I personally really enjoy using Skin Smoothing Cream under this primer. Kind Regards, Bernadette
