Urban Decay B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray

What it is: A soothing prep spray that features the first stabilized form of vitamin B6, which absorbs oil, minimizes pores, and reduces redness. What it does: Spritz on this soothing spray any time of day to hydrate, prep, and soften skin with vitamins and antioxidants. Use it in the morning to prep and wake up your skin, during the day to for a quick refresh that won’t mess up your makeup, or at night before your treatment. Versatile enough for people of all ages and skin types, this energizing formula is great for your complexion and feels amazing. What it is formulated WITHOUT:- Parabens- Sulfates - Phthalates What else you need to know: This oil- and paraben-free spray comes in a sleek, soft-touch bottle that emits a calibrated, microfine mist. It goes on so light, you’ll hardly feel it. Vitamin B6 normalizes overactive cell-signaling proteins (called cytokines) to help control sebum production, vitamin E provides antioxidants, and willow bark (rich in natural salicylic acid) supports natural cell turnover. In a clinical study, after 8 weeks of use: - 81% of participants had a measurable reduction in oil and surface shine - 78% had more radiant skin with less redness and fewer blemishes - 72% had a measurable improvement in their skin’s overall appearance

Yes and no. If you have oily skin, this spray will help to keep oil production down, and thus increase the wear time of your makeup, but the spray itself isn't intended as a 'setting' spray.

I use it in place of a toner, not as a setting spray or primer. I would stick to the Urban Decay setting spray if your looking just to prolong your makeup wear. But I highly recommend this product to be added to anyones daily beauty routine.

answer 3
I know that you can apply this after your makeup as a spray to perhaps remove the powdery look makeup can sometimes give, but I do not think it is meant to work like the setting sprays are. In may case, because of my oily/combo skin, spraying this BEFORE i moisturize decreases my oil production, while in turn prolongs the wear of my makeup. With that being said, it would depend on your skin type. But generally speaking, no, this product is not meant to be a setting spray to use after your makeup to prolong wear. The most it will do is freshen up your makeup or remove a powdery look, unless you have oily skin and spray it on before any makeup application to try and control any oil which may cause your makeup to wear off faster than normal.

If you spray this before you put on your primer, and then again after your makeup is done, I think it helps a lot with keeping things in place, though that's not officially what its job is. It may not help to the extent that the other sprays, which are expressly for that purpose, help, but it has a lot of other benefits besides just setting makeup, which it does adequately.

I haven't noticed that it adds any staying power to my foundation like a regular "primer." It does seems to shrink my pores and take the redness away, but I wouldn't say that it added any longer wear-time foundation.

Question
Use with moisturizer AND primer?
I have to moisturize before putting on any makeup whatsoever, but I don't always use primer. Would it be too much to use moisturizer, spray this, and then use primer, all before even putting foundation on? Does this product eliminate the need to use primer? I know that primer makes your makeup last longer and go on smoother, but I figure my moisturizer can fill in lines and smooth my skin just as well. With the addition of B6, which would help my makeup last longer and control oil, do you think a primer is even necessary?

answer 7
I spray this on first after cleansing and before any serums (I don't use moisturizer at present). I believe the sugesstion from UD is to use it first before other products but you can also use it to freshen up your make up throughout the day. I just use it in the a.m. and at bedtime, but always first before anything else. It does not replace a primer. What it seems to do for me is to help calm any minor redness and decrease oilness. I've noticed that before bed if I have a small pimple and spray my face with Prep then by the morning it looks much better. I've had this bottle over a month, use twice daily as I said with about 4 sprays each time. If you haven't already tried it, I'd say go for it and if you don't notice any positive changes, then return it. Let's face it, it's another step to add to the routine but it's soo quick. The mist is super fine and absorbs almost instantly. As far as the primer, I swear by them. Right now I'm using Guerlain but also have Hourglass that I use here and there. Smashbox primers are very good. I used their light primer for years and only changed it up because that's how girls are sometimes....always looking to try new things and the next "miracle." I might add that I also use two other UD sprays as needed, the Deslick and All-Nighter. They're great too because I work very long hours and my make up stays freash for 12 hours plus. I swear all these products have helped my post-baby oily, oily skin. Before baby all I used was primer and foundation powder. Oh how things have changed!

Does this overdry mature sin?
I have mature skin which is still oily and acne-prone, but dry on the surface. I usually wear oil-free fdts. and I spray UD's All-Nighter on top to avoid powdery look. However, I live in a very dry climate and sometimes my sin feels overdry. Would this spray help me, or would it further dry my skin? BTW, I intensely dislike the "glowy" (for me, greasy) look.

I have dry,adult-acne prone skin as well. I use the chill setting spray with all-nighter over if I need my makeup to last that long. But,the chill daily. I love it..I just started using the b6 spray and can say I've not noticed more dryness. I've read through much of the reviews. A lot say it's hydrating. I do have a more oily t zone and some larger pores. So that is what attracted me to this product. But,like the other answer said,all u can do is give it a go. Everybody has different skin. And thank goodness that Sephora does have a great return policy! I will update or review soon after I give this a little time.

I wonder if maybe the UD Chill spray would be better for you since your skin is on the drier side. I have oily skin and the B6 spray has seemed to keep it under control but it does not make me dry. Honestly, I can't imagine anything that would cause me to be dry! You may want to try both sprays and you can always return them. But I'd probably suggest trying only one at a time so you can tell if one is working or not. Really the only thing to do is to try them. And it takes more than a one-time use. But Sephora has a great return policy so that gives you plenty of time to decide which, if any, is right for you. For my oily skin I use the B6 on a clean face and after the make up I spray the DeSlick and then the All-Nighter (when I'm working because I work long, sweaty shifts). Good luck! It's taken me awhile to find a new regime after having suffered so many hormonal issues after having a baby, but with trial and error I think I'm finally getting there!

if you used this every morning, I would think this bottle should last a full month, perhaps a little longer depending on how much you spray at one time. It does come out as a very fine mist and I would think one spray should pretty much do your entire face.

B6 is more like a skin prepping spray. It stops the oil from producing on your skin, helps reduce blemishes and redness. They recommend using it before makeup application, so still use a primer. You can sprtiz some more on throughout your day for a refresh-pick me up & if you feel oily.

Personally, I would use this before anything otherwise I don't know if it would work the way it is supposed to.

I like to use this in addition to a primer, but that is mainly because I have oily skin and need to go to extra lengths to ensure oil is kept at bay throughout the day.

Either or. It depends on how long you're wanting your makeup to last. When used in conjunction with Urban Decay's (Skindinavia's) other setting sprays such as De-Slick, you're going to get long wear without much blotting or re-touching. If you need to look fab all day long then use this, then primer, and finish off your makeup with the setting spray. This may sound a little overboard, but if your skin is very oily and you already have problems with oxidation of makeup then by all means, go ahead and use it with the primer and setting spray. If you're needing to look great all day for photos, say a wedding, then yes, do it all. But just on an everyday basis, this product doesn't require primer and setting spray to reap it's skin-loving, redness reducing benefits.
