I stumbled upon this in my last visit to MUA's Productville. I saw that it had lots of good reviews and had to try for myself. I'd actually been in the MAC store a few times after this product came out, and never really noticed it. After I saw the reviews, I decided to go again to MAC and just purchase it without trying.

I'd used the regular Prep+Prime before and wasn't enamored of it, so I didn't have high hopes for this. I found that the regular one didn't do much for the longevity or the appearance of my foundation, and it was just one extra step in my morning routine, so I swapped it away after only a couple of uses.

Enter the Prep+Prime Face Protect SPF 50 -- this stuff is awesome! For reference, I have combo skin with a very oily T-zone. I was previously alternating between Neutrogena Dry Touch Sheer Sunblock SPF 55 (which would leave me greasy by mid-day), and Olay Total Effects lotion in SPF 30 (which gave me breakouts on my forehead).

This stuff is great! I helped my foundation to go on more smoothly and to last longer, and it also didn't make me more oily. My nose still had break-through shine, but my forehead was normal. If this doesn't break me out, it will be my HG primer/daily sunscreen.
