How can I use this primer?
We recommend applying generously and evenly across your entire face as the last step in your skincare routine! It can be worn with or without makeup. Apply at least 15 minutes before sun exposure.
Will I need to reapply this primer like other sunscreens? / How much of this product should I be using for it to be effective?
For maximum SPF protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays, we recommend reapplying every two hours.
If I’m supposed to re-apply this every few hours, how would I retouch my makeup?
If wearing with makeup: For re-application of your Filtered Effects Protecting Primer SPF 37 over makeup, you can press it into the skin with the Blend + Blur Sponge. Once your Sunproof Primer has set, you can use the sponge to smooth and perfect the look of your makeup underneath.
If wearing alone with no makeup: If you are re-applying your Filtered Effects Protecting Primer SPF 37 over a skincare only/makeup-free face, you can simply re-apply with clean fingertips, a brush, or blending sponge. Whatever works best for you!
