Looking for a primer for oily, acne prone skin?

[ Edited ]

What would be a good primer for Lancome Teint Idole Ultra foundation? I've noticed that some primers have given me acne. I think silicone clogs my pores. I'm going to Arizona in a few weeks where it's going to be around 115 or higher so I need something that will help my make up last. SPF would also be a plus, the only thing is my skin is sensitive to chemical sunscreen. I recently tried the Hourglass Veil Mineral primer and I'm not sure if that is what caused me to break out, but I'm holding off on trying it again right now.


Primers I've tried that caused acne:

Smashbox photo finish original

Tarte clean slate poreless


Other primers I've used that didn't help with oil: Nars pro prime pore refining, Laura Mercier oil free, Smashbox bb cream


Any suggestions would be really helpful! Thanks a lot!

Hi nina20, 


Have you looked at CoverFX? They make a great primer that is for shine and anti-acne, as in it helps to treat and prevent acne! 


Cover FX Mattifying Primer and Anti Acne Treatment



If you have a store nearby, ask for a sample!  I also suggest you look at the  Too Faced Primed and Poreless for sensitive skin:
