{Products of the Day}: LORAC Mattifying Primer & Concealer

Product of the Day: LORAC POREfection Mattifying Face Primer

There are certain products you want to weep at the thought of getting down to the last drop. This is one of those products. I've tried a lot of primers, a lot. I've tried high end from Smashbox and Benefit to drugstore like Rimmel and L'oreal. I've now found my absolute favorite primer and that is LORAC POREfection Mattifying Primer. 
I love primers that have a lightweight consistency that leaves your skin feeling like silk. I think of the consistency of this similar to the Balm's Time Balm, L'oreal Magic Souffle, Rimmel Fix and Perfect and Smashbox Photo finish Oil Free primer. It is kind of a mix between a gel and a cream. This primer above all others makes my skin feel so amazingly soft and smooth. It also retails at $32 for 1.7fl oz. and is oil free, paraben free and fragrance free. The comparable Smashbox oil free primer is $36 for 1 oz and is not as good as this primer. If you have allergies or sensitive skin like I do, you will love that this doesn't have fragrance or alcohol to it. I have normal to dry skin, especially in the winter. My face didn't feel oily with this and it controlled what oil issues I have, which are minimal. I can't attest to how the mattifying aspects of this work on more oil prone skin types. 

Prime, Prep and Perfect with POREfection Mattifying Face Primer. This oil, fragrance and paraben-free primer is infused with Salicylic Acid and antioxidants of Vitamins A, C and E to help skin appear healthy, youthful and radiant. The skin-perfecting formula helps to minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines for a silky-smooth, poreless-looking, matte finish.
