I just bought my first. I think it's going to be too oily for my skin type though. I didn't see any real difference when I used it under foundation. Thoughts?

I love Arbonne's foundation primer. It makes your skin feel like silk. I only use it under mineral powder makeup though. It might be too oily under liquid foundation.

I have to confess, I don't even know what a foundation primer is.

I am also not sure what a foundation primer is. What is the purpose of it? Is it colorless?

It's colorless and "primes" the skin surface for foundation. It helps foundation go on more evenly and smoothly. I never knew what primer was til I read Charla Krupp's book.

I use two different ones - one is a free sample given to me at Sephora made by Smashbox called Photo Finish Light and the one I bought from Clinique is called Turnaround Concentrate Visible Skin Renewer. I swear, it makes my face look luminous.

Just another facial skin product to get addicted to, but to me, man, it works!

Whew, glad I wasn't the only one who'd never heard of such a thing.

Yeah, it was that book which got me to order it. And yeah, I ordered the one by Smashbox. I am only using it now where I kinda have some wrinkles and need some moisture. Seems to be nice for that. It does make your skin feel like silk.
