Physician's Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Correcting Primer, $10.95 Physician's Formula's was a trailblazer in formulating color-correcting products for sensitive skin, but our testers were not crazy about this trio of primers. Problem #1. The packaging and application. Twist the pen, and product oozes into the rainbow-colored brush. Simple enough, right? It takes a few twists initially to get any product to come out (the directions recommend 10-15 turns), but then, lookout ... ooze city. Every time we used the primer, after one or two twists (as directed) one of two things happened: 1) nothing or 2) too much product gushed out ... and continued gushing. A lot of waste, a lot of mess and the brush doesn't "sweep" across your skin because the primer is very thick and sticky (think: runny toothpaste).
The peach primer did a noteworthy job brightening another tester's skin. She also noted that the paraben-free, non-comedogenic, and oil free formula didn't make her break out (bonus!), but overall gave it a thumbs-down because "it felt sticky and turned my face into an oil slick."
