There is literally nothing worse than spending time doing your makeup and achieving a beautiful look…only to have it melt off four hours later. I’ve recently started using a primer and I’ve been quite impressed with it-I’m not usually one to use a primer because I thought they were only for oily skins, and that was a big mistake!

My current favorite is elf Blemish Control Primer which you can grab for just $6 at the store – if you’re not familiar with elf, or “eyes, lips, face”, they’re easily one of my favorite drugstore brands because their products are reasonably priced and I genuinely enjoy the quality of a lot of their products (and no, this is not a sponsored post!).

What does the elf Blemish Control Primer do?

  • A primer is a protective layer in between your daily moisturizer and your foundation
  • It fills in any gaps in your skin (i.e. pores, acne scars) to create an even layer foundation to sit on
  • All skin types can use primers, no matter if you’re oily, dry or a combination

There’s a wide range of primers available, I just happen to like the elf Blemish Control Primer which has ingredients like Salicylic Acid, Vitamin E, and Tea Tree Oil to help fight breakouts.

How often do I use a blemish control primer?

  • I recommend applying once per day – elf claims this product can be used up to three times per day, but Salicylic Acid is known to dry out skin so I would use sparingly
  • Anytime you use any beauty product with Salicylic Acid, be sure to use a highly-moisturizing night cream at night to keep your skin healthy.

All in all, this is a staple in my beauty bag. I love that it’s budget-friendly, helps to control my little breakouts here and there, and that it has a pump for packaging!

    I’m currently on the hunt for a face primer that is aimed at blemish controlling and this sounds like a must-try! As well as it being super affordable, great review.
