I ordered Refining Makeup Primer thinking this is a foundation primer... but when I received the package, it looks like a sunscreen lotion for day time. Not sure if this can be used under the foundation during night time.

Asked by: Tanu
Hi Tanu, thank you for your question. Refining Makeup Primer is a foundation primer that contains SPF. You can use it under your foundation day or night, just be sure to remove your makeup before going to sleep.

Does this control oil a lot? This is good for dry skin?

Asked by: Emma
Hi Emma, this primer does not claim to control oil or be specifically made for dry skin. It is more for evening out your skin tone and filling in fine lines. We recommend trying our Ibuki Quick Fix Mist. You can set your makeup with it and use it to correct shine or dehydration throughout the day!

Refining Makeup Primer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The primer I used in the past 20 years I love this primer for several reasons: 1. Give you coverage as a primer (some primer only gives you a glow and greasy look but no coverage at all) 2. Makes your makeup looks more natural and last longer. 3. Somewhat fills your pore. The old formula actually works better, but this new formula is ok too. 4. You can wear this alone if you don't want to wear foundation, it will give your skin a little boost without the heavy make up look. With the combination of all these reasons, so far I have not seen any primer works better than this even some top sellers of other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for hands! Years ago I worked for Sephora and flight attendants would come in and they turned me on to the secret of great looking hands. If you're of a certain age and you want your hands to look as fabulous as your face, use this instead, of moisturizer. If you wash your hands you'll have to 're-apply but it's worth it! Flight attendants know all sorts of great makeup tips and hacks and this in my opinion, is one of the heart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I use this product daily before moisturizer. I like to use it under eyes, either side of mouth, between brows and down center of nose; then moisturizer, then make-up, if using make-up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have purchased this product for years. I have used this product for years under my foundation. It keeps my makeup fresher all day. It is creamy but not thick or heavy and it is great for sensitive skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pore filler I have been using this primer with all of my liquid foundations and I LOVE it. I have never found a primer that I like until now. My skin is combination oily and tends to break out. I also have enlarged pores. This really helps to fill them in and keep my skin mattified.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Will buy again...even tho I like the older formula better... I liked the previous formula better. I could even use it as quick coverup/foundation for Sat AM errands. Had better coverage.
