Does using primer ruin the effect of "beneficial make-up"

I use BB creams and and foundation with anti-aginf properties.  But it seems to be that if I use a primer before putting these on that the primer would block the good stuff from getting to my skin?  Should I put the primer on afterword?  That seems weird. . .

GOOD QUESTION!!!

I can't wait to see the definitive answer to your question!  I wondered about primer blocking my pores, etc. also.

Technically yes, it will interfere, especially if your primer is silicone based. That being said you could always do a thin base layer of product then the primer then another layer. Alternatively, BB Creams should stay pretty well on their own and most come with a "built in" primer.
