How does foundation apply when using this product?
I have very oily skin and acne prone (even though this seems to be under control for the past few months). I need to know if anyone has used this product and applied foundation over it, is it easy to apply or does it "roll off"? I have very bad luck with finding a base under my foundation, have tried a few others like the Pomegranate Primer from Korres and Zero Oil Moisture lotion from Origins, even though they definitely reduced the oil and shine on my face when worn alone, when applying foundation over it it always rolled off. I did let both of these products sink in on my face for a while, but still didn't have any luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

on Acne & Wrinkle Reducer
I use this product first and follow up with a combination of moisturizer and BB cream. Then I use a mineral powder foundation. Unlike pore perfectors or skin primers, this product does not effect the ability of the other products to do their jobs.
I had the same problem with primers. This tends not to have that problem, but you have to make sure it is very dry.
I only use this product at night, not with makeup. It doesn't dry you out but it's also not moisturizing, it usually just puts my skin back to it's natural texture. I use powder makeup so I like to have a really moisturized base. However, this product REALLY helped with my acne, so I would definitely say get it and use it at night.
I think it makes a good base for applying foundation. It is quite hydrating.

Hi there, I think I can help you!
I wear Estee Lauder double Wear (very full foundation) but I have tried many of the big name brands. I use this every morning and it has never interfered with my foundation. It is VERY light and it is absorbed quickly. A tip I have for you to help with application: Wash your face, pat dry and then immediately apply this product. This will help you get a thin coverage all over (and save product) because your skin is still slightly wet. It makes it easier to spread. I noticed in the morning after using this the night before, that it is completely absorbed when I do this. But when I apply to totally dry skin I sometimes have a tiny bit too much. I hope you like this product, if you have oily skin this is one of the best choices I could imagine. Their moisturizers are also very light weight.
