    I wanted this to work so bad!

    I have never in my life had problems with acne or breakouts until I turned 30. My face started breaking out and I FREAKED! So I went to my dermatologist and she told me she believed the breakout was due to hormonal changes. She then had me start using Retin-A daily. (Along with a low dose antibiotic.) Before my breakout I had been using Makeup Forever HD primer for a long time and never had a prob...read morelem. (I use Bare Minerals makeup also by the way.) Long story short.. After I started using the Retin-A slowly my face cleared up. Thank goodness! I never thought to change any of my makeup products or face creams because I had used them for years without incident. Then I noticed every time I used my Makeup Forever Primer I would get another breakout. I'm not sure as to why all of a sudden I couldn't use the same products. I then stared researching other primers. I came across this one. It had TONS of great reviews! A huge portion of them stated they had sensitive skin or acne prone skin and that this product had given them no problems as far as acne and breakouts go. I decided to try it out. I went to Sephora and they gave me some samples. When I used it for the first time I absolutely loved it! It went on so smooth and felt great! Not greasy or sticky at all! It made my skin feel so soft and also had a matte finish which I loved as my face tends to get oily throughout the day. Much to my disappointment I noticed my face broke out after the first time I used it. I know a primer is a must but being I couldn't find one to not break me out I had to use my Bare Minerals makeup a few times with no primer, and my face DID NOT break out. I gave the Hourglass primer one more shot after my face cleared back up. To my dismay my face broke out yet again. That let me know it was in fact the primer and not the makeup that was breaking my face out. I am still looking for the perfect primer. If your face isn't prone to breakouts and you are looking for a great product I would definitely recommend this primer. If It hadn't broken my face out every time I used it, it would be my go to primer hands down! I would have LOVED to be able to use it as my everyday primer! As for those like me who are prone to breakouts honestly I would still recommend AT LEAST trying this primer. (Sephora will give samples of any product you would like to try for the first time.) As I said before, during my research plenty of people who have used this product have acne prone skin and had no problems at all with this primer. With any product you use its a trial and error process. What works for some may not work for others. In my opinion though it is worth trying! — 2 months, 1 week ago

    Primer Perfection!

    I decided to try a new makeup primer because well, that’s what I love to do – shake up my skincare and makeup routine. I was pleasantly surprised by the Hourlgass Makeup Veil Mineral Primer because it is very light. Many other primers can be thick and I worry they just clog my pores. The Hourglass primer makes my skin smooth and soft – the perfect base for my foundation. I highly recomme...read morend this product for a flawless look! It may be a little pricier than most primers but trust me, a little goes a long way so it is well worth the investment. — 1 year, 7 months ago

    So silky and smooth

    When you put this on, it glides over your skin and gives a nice healthy glow. I hate reapplying makeup too and this helps keep my foundation in place all day! Very lightweight and makes your skin feel nice and smooth. — 1 year, 11 months ago

    Best primer I have ever used!

    This primer is completely worth the money it makes you're skin feel like silk and will ensure a long wear for any foundation you use it is good for any skin type and has an SPF in it. Would defiantly recommend this primer! — 2 years, 4 months ago

    This stuff is great!

    I previously was using a Urban Decay primer and really hated it. It made my oily face even oilier. So I went and got a sample of this one and what a difference! Makes your foundation go flawless and does not feel oily at all! Yes, it is expensive but it is worth it and you only need to use a little. — 3 years, 1 month ago

    Hour glass mineral veil primer

    I love this primer. Because of it being pricey, I only use it on special occasions. But it was love at first application. I have very oily skin and it kept it at bay. Would buy again! — 3 years, 6 months ago
