Appropriate for oily skin?
At 47 years old, I still have moderately oily skin and some post-acne red areas but also now have a few brown "sun" spots. I've tried the green anti-redness Smashbox primer but oil still broke through. The Light, colorless primer works great for me as a primer & mattifier (even over makeup to take down shine later in the day). Should I stick with "Light" or will the Dark Spot correcting variety even my skin tone while still supressing oil break through?

on Photo Finish More Than Primer Dark Spot Correcting
I usually have oily skin too, especially in the summer! My skin hasn't been as oily as it usually is since I started using this product. It's not going to give you an incredibly Matte finish, but I think it helps with oily skin.
I had some previous acne dark spots which I've found this product really helpful with hiding instantly when used as a primer. If you read the directions though, it says to use even when not wearing makeup; so I've been wearing it on dark spots to bed for the past 3 weeks; It REALLY works in fading those dark spots!! I'm totally convinced that this stuff does what it claims to do. I luv it!
Hope this helps! :-)

The dark spot correcting is still the same oil-free formula. I haven't had any skin issues with it compared to the photo-light and I have oily skin that is very acne-prone.
