Fragrance free
Stops shine but not drying
Doesn't cause breakouts or irritate rosacea.
Any recs?

What's your budget? A purse friendly option you could look at is the Rimmel primer in the blue and white tube.

Haven't really thought of a budget tbh I just want something that works and my skin likes. Rimmel products usually all contain fragrance?

Just checked and the Rimmel one does indeed contain fragrance.

The Laura Mercier primers are (synthetic) fragrance free. I've only ever tried the 'foundation primer' and it didn't break me out but that is no guarantee it'll be the same for you. Some do contain plant extracts if that's a trigger, beautypedia has a good overview here. Can't help on the rosacea front either but LM counter staff is always helpful and give out samples when asked.

Thank you, only problem is I don't have a Laura mercier counter near me sad

La Roche posay cicaplast accelerator. Lisa Eldridge uses it on reactive, sensitive, spot prone skins as a primer. Get it from they often have a third off too. I have used it for years. Love it.

The smash box 'light' one is great. Much better texture than the original version. The 'light' one is fragrance free and great at keeping on top of shine. It is priced though but does last forever. I would be be without it now.

Wouldn't be without it

Is the la Roche posay one only available from there? Boots do one called Cicaplast baume b5 is this different?
Will check out Smashbox one too thank you.

I have Rosacea & I can tell you the Rimmel one on me destroyed my skin! I have a few of he bare minerals ones for everyday use that I alternate between. I have an inflow one aswell that i use in night out with their foundation. Love these.

secretgirl Thu 17-Mar-16 16:22:48

That should be inglot not inflow!!

MUA do a water based one that's fragrance free.

Nivea for men sensitive post shave balm (the one with the green writing)

It's amazing.

I like the this works mask, moisturiser and primer in one. I can't see fragrance in the ingredients?

Not sure onbudget but you have to try Givenchy mr Matt primer. Amazing and does exactly what you are looking for. I don't have a counter near me but I get off Escentual

I have rosacea and use Dermologica Skin Perfect Primer. I'm not sure it's fragrance free though - it is brilliant on my skin though.

Jane Irdele (sp?) is a mineral based make up company. I use their primer and have not had any bad reactions from it.

Indecisivejo Fri 18-Mar-16 07:03:50

Thanks everyone smile
Nivea and givenchy not fragrance free.
I would love to use the dermalogica one as I get on with their cleanser and moist but I can't afford that aswell sad used samples n loved it tho.
