Contains NO silicones! With over 30% micro-silica spheres, this thin gel primer creates a smooth finish, slightly blurring fine lines and pores. It not only can help stop excess oil, but allows any type of foundation to be applied more evenly (may not work as well with foundations containing silicone/dimethicone). The aloe-based gel prevents this product from being overly drying, since silica alone can pull moisture out of your skin. Tested on dry/sensitive and acne-prone skin with no adverse effects.
To apply, smooth on a very, very small (less than pea-size) amount with fingertips after applying moisturizer (& sunscreen). If it feels tight or looks flaky/streaky when dry, too much was applied or it was not rubbed in well enough over a good moisturizer. Or, mix in a drop of water while applying. Can also be mixed with moisturizer, or worn alone to reduce oily skin throughout the day.
Our Silica Gel Primer comes in a plastic bottle with flip-top cap, which contains 1 fl oz.
