Look fabulous all day with our Face Forward Primers.

Fortified with a natural SPF 15 sunscreen and our signature Frutta Di Vita™ antioxidant complex, our primers protect your skin from pollutants while vegetable-derived peptides improve the skin with every application. It's the first step to a beautiful, velvety smooth complexion. Available in Acne Response and Age Response formulas.

Whether you are 15, 30 or 45 troublesome breakouts and acne flare-ups can be a frustrating and chronic skincare issue. Our new Acne Response Peptide primer employs a unique, effective and non-irritating approach to breakout management for men and women of all ages.

This Acne Response Peptide is an anti-microbial peptide derived from plant amino acids that gently works within the skin to stop the production of p. acne bacteria with no irritation or drying side effects. Combined with our exclusive Frutta di Vita™ antioxidant complex this anti-microbial peptide also functions as an anti-inflammatory to speed healing of active breakouts while working within the skin to inhibit future breakouts.

Indications:

Helps prevent sunburn.  Higher SPF gives more sunburn protection.

Warnings:

For external use only.  Keep out of eyes.  Rinse with water to remove.

Stop and ask a doctor if rash or irritation develops and lasts.

Keep out of reach of children.  If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.

      LOVELY PRIMER! Have tried a few... most feel heavy, make me breakout at age 59! Not this one!! Feels very light, leaves a soft, smooth finish... can even use it on my eyelids with no allergic reactions. I don't use foundation, just this, eyes, lips, a little cheek color & go!

        Comments about Alison Raffaele Acne Response Face Forward Primer, SPF 15, 1 fl oz:

        This is without a doubt THE BEST PRIMER FOR OILY SKIN that I have ever used, and I've used a lot of primers. (UD, Too Faced, Korres, Clinique, Laura Mercier, Laura Geller, Smashbox, Benefit, to name a few...)

        I used to think that Smashbox Photo Finish Light was the best, but either my skin changed, or SPFL did, because about 2 years ago I started having nasty, greasy, blotchy problems with it- time to move on!
        That's when I found Alison Raffaele's Acne Response Face Forward Primer. It is this holy grail of primers for me! I cannot EVER be without it. I wear it every day. It really helps to keep my incredibly oily t-zone in check, keeps my makeup on all day, never causes me to break out, and smoothes over my evil large pores; all without being drying or irritating- and it has SPF!!!!! What more could you ask for? There is simply nothing wrong with this product. If you have oily, combination, or acne prone skin, it is totally perfect.

        I will say two things, though- first, I always follow up with Alison Raffaele's Transparent Finish Powder after I apply the rest of my makeup, so I'm sure that also helps keep the oil production down. I do see a little oil breakthrough in the afternoon, but my skin is SO oily, that's not a big deal for me. I blot and move on. (I also carry the portable AR Transparent Finish powder, so I'll dust a little of that on after I blot...) Without this primer and powder combo, I have oil breakthrough about 1/2 an hour after I apply makeup. No lie.

        Secondly, I do not use this primer on my eyes- I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance or Urban Decay Primer Potion for that. Love them.

        In short, I've been using this Alison Raffaele Acne Response Face Forward Primer/Transparent Finish Powder combo for two years, and it's amazing. I absolutely love it!

        (and hopefully this review will make it to the website- I've tried two other times, and they have not made it to "print". I hope the 3rd time's the charm, because I really love this product and want everyone else to know how great it is!) (and no, I don't work for AR- I just have really oily, sensitive skin and appreciate products that actually do what they promise!)

          I love this primer. It goes on so silky leaving my skin soft and smooth. Minimizes my pores and helps my mineral foundation to last. Great to have the added SPF and acne fighting ingredients. Feels lightweight. I use it everyday without any irritation.

            Comments about Alison Raffaele Acne Response Face Forward Primer, SPF 15, 1 fl oz:

            I used this a while back looking for a primer with the least synthetic ingredients and came upon this one. It really worked as it went on smooth and light. It gave a light velvet feel on my face. It did help set my foundation and even kept the worst of eyeliners on by the end of the day. I also felt that it did not irritate my acne-pro skin. The bottle seems small, but it lasted me about 1 1/2 months.

            Though now I substitute this primer with Jane Iredale's Pommist facial spray which is much more natural without the silicones in it. I still recommend this out of the other primers on the market, I just don't use it anymore for personal preference of ingredients.
