I'm currently using L'Oréal infallible matifying base but it's no good under my mineral foundation which I've recently changed back to... I have spot prone skin.

The Ordinary Primer is brilliant - they do 2, I use this one

Second The Ordinary primer - fantastic stuff.

I have oily skin and found The ordinary one did absolutely nothing for my skin- in fact I gifted to another mumsnetter on another thread! As always with skincare/ makeup it's really individual. Is it worth looking on Boots website for reviews and see if anyone mentions using mineral foundation under the various primers?

I love Givenchy Mister Mat. It's the only primer I've found that keeps my make-up fixed all day. It lasts for ages too. And doesn't give me spots.

You could try smashbox. They do about 8 different primers. Laura Mercier also does an acne prone oily skin one. M

I'm making my way thru about 12 primer sample pots at the moment!

The no 7 one is good and I have just got the new Estée Lauder one and I love it
