Clinique Superprimer Face Primer - Universal Face Primer

What it is: A color-correcting primer that preps the face for makeup application and wear. What it does: This lightweight, oil-free primer helps create a smooth, even canvas for foundation. It color corrects for a range of complexion concerns, so makeup glides on evenly and stays true. What else you need to know: Which one to use depends on your skin. There’s a Superprimer for redness, dullness, discoloration, and sallowness. If you have more than one skin concern, we recommend using a Superprimer to address one issue and a foundation to address the other. If you simply want allover smoothing before foundation, try Clinique's Universal Superprimer, which preps skin beautifully for makeup. It is translucent, so wearing it alone is an option if you’re pressed for time, but for best results, team Superprimer with foundation for a flawless look.

This product has algae extract in it which is highly comedogenic. I've never had such bad acne until using this product!

I don't see additional congestion, widening of blackheads, or the development of red bumps or whiteheads after using this in my rotation. It seems okay so far. Will update if anything changes.

answer 5
Yes!!! I have acne prone skin! I would easily break out and with this primer, the even better foundation and the blended face powder and my skin has improved! I used to only wear make up once in awhile to cover my acne because it would just cause me to break out even more, but with Clinique I don't have to worry about that!

Question
How well does it work for oily skin?
I love clinique, but I have SUPER oily skin (think bp oil spill) and pretty much the only primer that works is Smashbox Light. How well does this work with oily skin, and how well does it keep my make up from sliding off my face?

I wouldn't recommend this for oily skin. LM oil free is dryer and oily people claim to have trouble with that one...

I have very oily skin, and this primer did not work well for me at all. I applied it this morning around 9:00 a.m. By 12:30, I already had huge patches of bare skin on my cheeks and nose (where I am the most oily) It didn't do much to keep me matte. I wouldn't recommend this to someone with very oily skin. Hope this helps :)

I would say so...Clinique is known for not using a lot of harmful chemicals and for being clean and pure in its ingredients. I wouldn't slather it all over your body, but I would use it sparingly.

If you're concerned, ask your OB/GYN.

Question
Does this have silicone in it?
I had noticed some skin irritation when I used products with silicone but didn't realize this was the culprit until I had an awful reaction to a scar patch after foot surgery.
