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?

on B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray
I use this BEFORE my oil and cream and primer. That way the B6 part gets to my skin first.

Doesn't eliminate need for primer but creates a pore less look allowing for an airbrushed finish.

I use this with a clean face after I use toner. Then I use moisturizer, then primer. It's great! Although I don't think there is any correlation with using it as a primer.

I use in this order with fantastic results: B6 spray, gel moisturizer, Naked BB cream (or primer- the BB cream works as a primer), foundation, All Nighter setting spray (probably not necessary unless you have a long day ahead of you like I typically do).
I layer many serums, potions, lotions, sunblocks, primers, and firming agents together at times with a good result. The secret is to pat, not rub, when you are layering emollients.

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!
What I do is spray let dry a little bit , then moisturizer , primer then foundation
