Best Face Primers for Oily Skin!
With oily skin, you really can’t skimp on prepping your skin! From moisturizers to setting sprays, there are a lot of things that you can do to keep the shine to a minimum. And this includes choosing the right face primer.
Here’s a list of the top 3 face primers to help you deal with an oily complexion!
1. FENTY BEAUTY Pro Filt’r – Instant Retouch Primer
Fenty Beauty’s Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer ($32) is at the top of the list of face primers you need to get your hands on ASAP. The consistency of this oil-free primer is incredibly lightweight, so it feels just like you’re applying a moisturizer (we love this). The ultra-hydrating formula instantly absorbs into your skin, and it gives off a subtle scent that smells soo good.
The best part about this primer? Just like its name suggests, this primer has a filter-like blurring effect on your face!
What’s the verdict? This is actually one of the best face primers out there! It’s relatively inexpensive considering the fact that a bottle will last you forever. And the ultra-smooth formula does a phenomenal job at controlling oil.
2. HOURGLASS Veil Mineral Primer
Hourglass’ Veil Mineral Primer ($20-$75) is a cult-favorite and for good reason. It’s the BEST face primers for oily skin! You only need a tiny amount of product to coat your entire face, so a little really does go a long way with this product.
This oil-free primer is super lightweight, with a thin consistency that leaves a silky, barely-there feeling. It also delivers broad spectrum SPF 15 sun protection!
What’s the verdict? Hands down, the best face primer out there for oily skin.
Cons? It’s on the pricier side! You really do get what you pay for, but there are cheaper alternatives out there.
3. DR. BRANDT SKINCARE pores no more pore refiner primer
Dr. Brandt’s pores no more pore refiner primer ($45) is a great face primer for oily skin types. The velvety formula instantly mattifies your face and it does a great job when it comes to controlling oil. It also makes applying makeup a breeze, because it reduces the appearance of fine lines and pores.
What’s the verdict? This is the right primer for you if you’re trying to diminish the appearance of fine lines and pores while controlling oil production!
- There’s a slight scent (similar to tea tree oil) that might throw you off
- Packaging makes it hard for you to see how much product is left
