In oil: Do not be fooled, because despite having an oil texture, this type of primer can be used by all skin types, as it does not leave the skin looking oily. It helps in the hydration and protection of the skin, leaving a fresh and radiant aspect.

Siliconized: The siliconized primer creates a thin film on the skin, leaving a velvety finish with a soft and smooth touch, as well as helping makeup adhere better to the skin. And more: it is indicated for all skin types.
