I'm not sure how I ever lived without it!
from California, KY
Comments about Laura Mercier Foundation Primer- Protect Broad Spectrum SPF 30/PA+++:
When I wear make-up I like a simple, clean look. I really like this primer. I learned about it 8 months ago. It goes on lightly and adds just that extra bit of moisture my skin needs before applying the tinted moisturizer. I also love the fact it has SPF protection. I wear this twice a week on average, so I estimate a tube would last me 3-4 months if I applied it daily. I just ordered my second tube and I still have a bit left from my initial order.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

YAY! High SPF and no heavy feeling!
from Freehold, NJ
It it VERY difficult to find a high SPF product without Octisalate, which I seem to have a sensitivity to. I've tried a number of mineral moisturizing sunscreens, but they either feel heavy or aren't moisturizing enough in the winter. This primer is perfect - it leaves skin with a soft glow, has a high SPF and is very lightweight. So far I haven't felt like I needed to add any other moisturizers. And of course it works beautifully under my Tinted Moisturizer. Great product!

just what I was looking for
from Rome, Italy
I am half british living in Rome, from spring on going around town I need protection, but still want to wear makeup. This primer gives great base to makeup (I've tried many..), keeps makeup in place, does not itch.It works with Italy's strong sun. I would wear it also in the winter as it doesn't feel you're wearing high spf.
Makes skin feel great!
I always use this product first thing every morning. Somehow it makes my skin look nice even before I apply foundation. I highly recommend it!

Two Steps and Two Products in One
I don't leave my home without SPF on! So when LM released a primer with a high SPF and full coverage I was absolutely giddy. I hunted it down and used it immediately! I am relieved that the product does not irritate my skin or cause any redness, unlike my previous non-LM SPF product. It's pretty emollient for my t-zone and reminds me of the moisturizing primer formula. I use the oil-free version of my foundation over it. My makeup wears beautifully and since the primer is SPF 30 I also use it on my neck. Great for travel and convenience to combine these steps! For the New England winter I may add just a little moisturizer.

In all fairness I need to admit to loving lm sunblock, so when the primer with sunblock came out I was very excited. I took my foundation primer on a test drive to Disney Hong Kong in 100 degrees. It worked beautifully. I went the whole day with no sunburn, no greasy feeling, and no running off my face or into my eyes to sting. It stayed! It worked!The primer continues to work as the wonderful primer we all know and love, but the added sunblock saves me a step and cash.

Feels Totally Weightless
from MS Gulf Coast
This primer goes on so easily and the antioxidant indegredients instantly wake my skin and make my complection look more vibrant even on the earliest of mornings. I've noticed that both liquid and powder foundations last much longer when this product is applied first. Even my tinted moisturizer looks better and lasts longer when used with this primer! I would definitely recommend this product because regular use makes my skin look much healthier along with keeping my foundation of choice true to shade and maintaining a healthy finish even in the most humid weather.

This is an outstanding product that smooths the way for any foundation and gives you non-greasy, broad spectrum protection. Perfect anytime, but really great for the hot, humid summer months when you don't want to layer a bunch of stuff on your face. Love it!
