With antioxidant ingredients such as Green Tea, White Tea, and Apple Extract, the skin is smoothed and elasticity improved. Additionally, Algae Extract and Aloe Vera work together to soothe sensitive skin.

What is the best primer for oily or combination skin?

The best Jane Iredale primer for oily or combination skin is Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener for Oily Skin. This product contains all of the same anti-ageing antioxidants that the original Smooth Affair does plus a few extra key ingredients specifically for oily skin. The formula also features Pore Away Technology, a combination of ingredients that minimises the appearance of pores and controls shine. Additionally, Titanium Dioxide and Iron Oxide colour capsules even out the skin tone and reduce redness. Another key ingredient, Coconut Alkanes, makes this primer go on effortlessly and produces a lovely soft-focus finish. This primer is the perfect choice for anyone who wants a naturally matte appearance and oil control that lasts all day.

What is the best primer for acneic skin?

The best primer for acneic skin is Jane Iredale Absence Primer. This is a great choice when oil and blemishes are of real concern. The product has a creamy consistency that blends easily into the skin and becomes transparent as it sets. One of the main ingredients is Hydrated Silica, which helps to absorb excess oil and maintain a lovely matte finish. Hydrated Silica also helps to minimise the appearance of roughness, pores, and acne scarring, creating a smooth canvas for your makeup application. Absence Primer is also made with Willow Bark Extract, a natural exfoliant that is used frequently in acne treatment because of its ability to shed dead skin cells and clear pores.

Smooth primer

Very pleased with this primer! Glides on really well and works very effectively as a primer to achieve a nice even, consistent base before applying foundation or BB cream over the top. Helps make-up to last longer during the day.

Also has a lovely citrus scent which is a nice uplifting to start the day!
