always apply sunscreen 1st, you want your skin to absorb it. apply all other products over sunscreen

Personally, I like to mix the two. =) I'll take about a 1/2 a pump of sunscreen and a 1/2 a pump of Guerlain's L'or Radiance Concentrate With Pure Gold Make-Up Base and mix them together, on the back of my hand, using the tip of the handle on my foundation brush. As for using this product alone?! I don't recommend it unless you have pretty flawless skin. Although, it tightens pores and illuminates the face... It does a poor job of covering blemishes. It hides redness pretty well, though. If you're a "get - up - and - go" type of girl... I suggest you use a powder foundation with a powder brush after applying this product for better coverage and oil control. Hope this helps!

Yes, that is how I apply it! I just put on my moisturizer and let it absorb a bit and then apply this and foundation. It says to apply foundation immediately following the primer, so I don't really let the primer dry.

Pretty much -- just apply like a normal primer!! L'Or works great without moisturiser underneath, though, so unless you have super-dry skin, I'd try a few days with just this :)

Question
Ingredients please
I've experienced itching and discomfort with this product but don't have the box to check ingredients. I suspect it contains glycerin, glyceryl, PEG or di-glycerides (all of them are made of soap and oil). Or, maybe there is some rosemary?

I have used the Tarina Tarantino primer, and this is nothing like it. It is more of a gel based clear primer. I swear by MUFE HD foundation, and I really disliked this primer. Save yourself the money and skip it. I found it to be too sticky, and really did nothing special.

Always moisturize first. Let dry, and apply the make-up base.

i'm also nineteen years old, and also ( coincidentally ) have oily skin. no need to worry. this product is completely light weight, and in my opinion is good for sensitive skin. if you're looking to evade breaking out, i'd suggest staying away from compact powders. liquids don't tend to cause me personally any problems.

I'd say "yes" because it is does not have that silicone-based feel to it. It is more of a lotion.

this primer might be too moisturizing for oily skin. I have combination skin and while I LOVE to use this with my powder foundation, I would only use it with my liquid foundation during the winter.

Oil and Silicone Free?
I have been using this for about a month and I have been noticing more blackheads on my face than usual. Are there are any ingredients in it that people with oily skin should avoid? Thanks.

Guerlain products are usually highly moisturizing, might just be too much moisture holding your natural facial oils to your skin
