I use after cleansing and before a tinted moisterizer. It helps keep the moisterizer in place AND it closes up my pores.

Question
Is it oil free?
Is this primer oil free? All my foundations are oil free, so to use a primer that's not... wouldn't be a good idea.

Question
Before or After SPF?
Should I use this product before or after SPF? My brain says after SPF, but I'm afraid it might change the efficacy of my SPF if I use it in that order.

use it before a mineral sunscreen. you should contact a sephora representative directly through their "contact us" form for advice on using it with a chemical sunscreen

We recommend applying your primer after your skincare, including SPF. This will not alter the SPF at all!

Yes, I have dry/ normal skin, more dry especially in winter and this is awesome. ESPECIALLY if you have big honking pores you would love to cover up. This is one word: magical.

This is an AMAZING primer for dry skin. Its the Alpha Lauric Acid that makes your moisturizers actually work... and the product is soft and more natural

Question
Mattifying?
I've been using Dr. Brandt Pores no More pore refiner primer but am considering switching to this product for the anti-aging properties. Does this also reduce the appearance of shine/oil, as I like that aspect of the Dr. Brandt product?

Thank you!

I love both. This one is a little better at the instant smoothing look (along with great long term benefits). Dr. Brandt (may he rest in peace) is better if oily skin is your bigger problem.

I'm sure you could use it that way but that is not how i use it. I put it on before i put my makeup on to reduce the size of my pores.

There is no reason you can't but they do make a pore correcting serum better suited to treatment, also a cream if I remember correctly.
