Do SPF Primers Work?
The short answer - yes! However, not all primers with SPF are created equal. Since the skin on your face is especially delicate, the products you use should contain at least SPF 15. We’re obsessed with safeguarding your skin from sun damage so we recommend facial primers that are SPF 20 or higher. We even offer primer with SPF 50 for protection against 98% of UVB rays.
Introducing a face primer with SPF to your beauty routine is a great way to protect your skin while simultaneously perfecting your complexion by smoothing fine lines, refining pores, and preventing shine. It’s the ultimate win-win!
Not only do they work, but you’ll save money. Instead of buying a special sunscreen for your face that doesn’t break you out as well as a basic primer, you can enjoy the peace of mind that your SPF primer is pulling double duty.
Can Sunscreen Be Used As A Primer?
Some tinted sunscreens can conceal minor blemishes but first and foremost, they’re designed to protect your skin from the sun. The better question is “is sunscreen a good primer?”. Not really... while sunscreen is essential for full-body skincare, it’s lacking in its ability to provide the staying-power your foundation needs, especially on the hottest days.
There’s almost nothing worse than spending the time to put on a full face while on vacation only to feel your makeup sliding off after an hour because your sunscreen prevented your makeup from setting correctly. It’s also inconvenient that you have to reapply every few hours and some sunscreens can even make skin flaky or worsen other issues.
Makeup with SPF is the revolutionary solution to these frustrating problems. To help you in the fight against your skin woes through every season, we’ve even formulated a special face primer for dry skin so you can maintain a fresh and hydrated appearance in the coldest of months.
Simply put, face primer is a powerful tool in any makeup bag because it blurs imperfections and helps your makeup remain intact longer, so you’re photo-ready, even on your most active days.
What Goes First, Primer or Sunscreen?
If you’re using a separate sunscreen and primer, you will want to put on your sunblock first for the best protection. Sounds like kind of a pain though, right? Instead of applying sunscreen, waiting for it to dry, then applying your primer, using makeup primer with SPF makes getting ready for some fun in the sun easier with one simple step.
By finding the right primer for your skin type, you can stop worrying and live your life to the fullest knowing your skin’s protected and thriving. Colorescience SPF facial primers are the perfect solution, whether you want to use it alone for a natural-looking boost to your complexion or as the first step in your makeup routine.
Fantastic PrimerI had a much needed facial for the first time in a while and my skin was pretty irritated. I have used colorescience before and for some reason stopped using the products. But after the facial I pulled out this primer and decided to try it on my newly treated skin. I was amazed at how it calmed and soothed my irritated skin. Then I used my colorescience creme foundation. I don't know why I stopped using these fantastic products. The primer was just what my skin needed and not just in the primer category. It was truly a skin treatment for my red irritated skin. I am still baffled as to why I stopped using these fantastic products. This primer saved the day!!!
The only sunscreen that didn't make me breakoutThis is the best sunscreen ever! I have oily skin and have tried every sunscreen out there (cheap and pricey ones) but did not work well because they all made me breakout until I found Sunforgettable! This is the only sunscreen that works for my skin! I love it!!!
Perfect sunscreen for the face!I use this in place of powder. It gives a little color with the sunscreen and since it is a powder, it never gets greasy or shiny. It lasts forever!
Beautiful glow and SPF 50!I just got my bottle of Even Up, so have only used it a few days, but think it will be great. As others have said, it has a unique aroma. It reminds me of fermenting wine, so I assume it is the VENUCEANE™ listed in the ingredients. It fades quickly so, even to my VERY picky nose, it's fine to me.
The price is high, but if it performs as promised, I'll continue to buy.
I am very pale and the color is just a bit too dark. In the summer months I think it'll give me a nice glow, but for now I mixed it with a little brightening primer to adjust it.
Hi, the odor you're smelling is a light sandalwood oil scent. As you've noted, it doesn't tend to linger for very long.
Primer & Sunscreen in OneI received a sample of this and loved it so much I purchased the product. It is sheer light coverage with a glide on feel, seems to act as a primer along with being a sunscreen. I cannot use most sunscreens on my face as they irritate my eyes even keeping them away from that area. This has no irritation and no smell like most.
