Alison Raffaele - Acne Response Face Primer

Review on Alison Raffaele - Acne Response Face Primer

I've had this face primer for awhile now so I decided to start using it again. And with that I decided to do a review. I'm kind of a fan and I'm kind of not. The product claims to be a face primer and acne treatment. I can't say that I have noticed a difference with my awful blemishes that have appeared suddenly. I can definitely say that it doesn't leave my face feeling dry. It actually has a very smooth texture and allows your foundation to apply nicely. When I applied it, I put it on my favorite palette (my hand) and applied it with a sponge. After, I put my foundation on my hand to be applied with a MAC 168. So when I went to wash my hands, it seemed that once the water hit that spot where the products were it acted like a sealant. I tell you this stuff would not budge as I scrubbed my hand with soap and water. I would imagine that if you spritz your finished makeup with some MAC Fix+ or a similar product, it would probably increase the staying power. I haven't tried this yet, but I'll let you know. So I guess I'll continue with the pros on this one.

Not tested on animals.

The packaging is made from recycled material AND the bottle itself can be recycled with your plastic.

Free of parabens, oils, talc, and other yucky stuff.

Contains SPF15!

And now for the cons:

Even though a little goes a long way, this 1 Fl. Oz. bottle retails for $44. Yikes!

One of the biggest cons (and why I would probably not recommend this product to everyone); when applied the primer leaves an ashy sheen. Even on my pale skin. This is not cool. I have started using this only on blemishes, under my eyes, and other spots where I tend to apply layers of makeup to achieve maximum coverage.

When I noticed the paleness that this leaves, I used a foundation that was a shade darker than my skin tone. This helped. All in all, the product is definitely a good primer. It does the job. I'm not a touch up kinda gal and when I used this, even with layers of concealer, foundation, and powder, I did not have to reapply my makeup at all. There are certainly more affordable primers out there that will give the same results. So I guess, I'm neutral. If you want a product that is paraben free and environmentally friendly, then Alison Raffaele is the one for you.
