Works Well With

If you're looking for an oil-free primer, this is it. Creates a smooth, even surface for flawless makeup application. The formula provides a soft-focus effect to help minimize the look of pores, fine lines, and imperfections.

Laura created this expert primer specifically for oily skin. Lightweight, soothing, water-based gel keeps oily skin fresh.

Prepares for and perfects makeup application

Like all Laura Mercier™ Primers, it creates a perfectly smooth, even surface for applying foundation. It helps makeup glide on easily and last longer, so your look stays fresh and colour-true for hours.

Why Laura's primers are different

Unlike traditional primers that are overloaded with silicone smoothers, Laura Mercier Primers™ are water-based and include a minimal concentration of the lightest silicones. That's why they feel fresh and lightweight, and why they work as well as they do. In addition, they create an invisible "buffer" for your skin, with an antioxidant vitamin complex that helps protect skin against harmful, aging effects of the environment.

Demi-Matte Finish

Foundation Primer - Oil-Free gives skin a demi-matte finish, with invisible coverage. Ideal for normal to oily skin types.

Formulation Details

Oil-free. Non-comedogenic. Dermatologist tested.

Apply on clean skin, or after your moisturizer or sunscreen. Gently massage primer into skin’s surface with fingertips. Follow with Tinted Moisturizer, Foundation, or Concealer.

PRO TIP

Place in the refrigerator before use. The coolness will refresh your skin and help reduce visible puffiness.

Wow, I'm impressed!

5

I am so impressed by this product. I was completely shocked to the fact that it kept my makeup intact and my face oil free for a very long time. I live in Florida and the humidity is unbearable, my face is an oily mess no matter what I do, that sometimes I just want to hide in a corner. But this primer is magic, it softens and smoothens the skin, while being a barrier to oil but keeping the makeup intact. This is now my favorite primer!!!!

The only makeup that does not make me breakout

I love the oil free line from Laura Mercier! I used to have extremely bad breakouts until I started using her products and now I will only get one every once in a while. The primer makes my face feel fresh and helps the tinted moisturizer stick for a longer period of time. I love this product!

I love this product! It gives you a very smooth texture of your skin and the most important thing is, it is truly oil free! Apply it before you using foundation, it will give you a matt, oil free look all day! Highly recommend it! You will love it, especially in summer~

This primer is amazing

The oil-free primer does what it's supposed to. It controls the oil on the oily parts of my face, but doesn't dry out the less oily parts. It keeps my make-up looking flawless all day. I'm constantly amazed that I never have to touch up anything!

Foundation Primer --Oil Free

5

This is where perfection (or flawlessness) begins! This products lays down as an easy to apply 1st step in putting your best face on display. Skin is literally smoothed, plumped, and hydrated just enough for those of us with a mixed dry/oily complexion. I've been using this foundation primer over 8 years and would not consider entertaining a substitute!

This is the one of the items that I cannot go without. Not only do I use this when I apply my make-up, I also apply it at night when I apply my skin care, as it still provides that protective barrier

The Perfect Canvas....

I use this everyday right under my Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer. It creates such a smooth and oil-free canvas for your make up. This has never caused me to break-out. That's always a plus!

I am 51 years old, live in a high humid climate and have hormonal cystic acne breakouts. I have very oily skin. My face is very sensitive with products containing Benzoate, silicone, glycerin and sulfur products. Would I be able to use one of your skin primers?

Lori

Lori, because everyone's skin react differently to products we can't guarantee a product will be 100% irritation-free for every person. We do recommend the Oil-Free Primer and recommend you patch test the primer before you apply it to your entire face. For your reference, the Laura Mercier website provides customers with a full list of ingredients used in each product. You can print and review the list of ingredients for the Oil-Free Primer with your physician.

Does this primer really work with oily, shiny skin? I want a primer that will absorb the oil, shine and keep my face clean and non oily.

Vallena Henry

Vallena, The Oil Free Foundation Primer is ideal for normal to oily skin types. The Oil Free Foundation Primer keeps oily skin fresh and colour-true for hours. For a foundation primer that will control shine breakthrough and is also, oil free we recommend using Foundation Primer- Blemish-Less.

DD

I am curious if adding this on top of my daily moisturizer will make my face feel heavy? I have oily skin. This product sounds great but not sure if its too many layers to be adding before makeup. thanks

Laurie

Laurie, because the Oil Free Primer is a lightweight, creamy gel specifically created for oily skin it will not make your face feel heavy. The primer will offer some moisture to your skin but its main purpose is to protect the skin from harmful, aging effects of the environment.

DD

Is Laura Mercier oil fee primer non comedogenic ?

Sarika

Sarika, The Oil Free Primer is dermatologist and allergy tested and is Non-Comedogenic.

DD

What is the difference between the blemishless primer and the oil free primer? I was also advised that the blemishless primer can be used on its own without foundation to help skin. Is this correct.

aninits

Aninits, the Blemish-Less Foundation Primer is an oil-free Primer that improves the appearance of blemishes while controlling breakthrough shine. It also immediately minimizes the look of pores. The Oil Free Foundation Primer primes and nourishes skin with an invisible layer that protects the skin from harmful aging effects of the environment. It also has oil controlling benefits that leave makeup looking fresh. Both primers can be worn alone or with foundation.

DD

Is this one non-comedogenic like the blemish-less primer? I'm trying to decide between the two. I'm 49 and have oily t-zone and get hormonal breakout acne. But face can be dry after using acne product so pores stand out and hard to apply powder foundation.

deborah

This product is oil free and ideal for normal and combination skin (people with T-zone issues).

Community Answer

I own this primer and the LM Tinted Moisturizer - Oil Free...should i apply the primer before or after the tinted moisturizer? I know the primer goes after the moisturizer but i don´t know how it works when it is tinted or when im using it as foundation (during the day).

Isabel

Isabel, always apply your primer prior to using tinted moisturizers or foundations. Primers create an invisible layer that acts as a buffer to outside elements. Massage a liberal amount of primer all over the face.

DD

Is it ok to use this primer with a moisturizing foundation like Silk Crème?

Angelfeet

Angelfeet, if you have dry skin we recommend you use the Hydrating Foundation Primer with your Moisturizing Silk Crème Foundation. We recommend you use the Oil Free Primer if you have oily skin.

DD

Forgive me if this is a silly question, but my skine is dark brown(African) - will this primer go on clear for me, as opposed to leave a whitish mask? Thanks.

Lora

Lora,The Oil Free Primer is a colorless gel that will not leave a whitish mask on your skin. Apply a peas size amount all over you face and then apply your foundation.
