What Is It:

A daily protective primer for anti-redness and sebum control that uses expensive, silicone-free flexible texturing ingredients to help diminish the appearance of fine lines for smooth makeup application.

  • Description

    • A primer unlike any primer you've tried before - other primers are usually made of silicones to "fill in pores" which can clog pores and cause makeup to slip - so we wanted to create a primer that out innovates other primers you've grown up with
    • Instead, we use plant based elastomers for the texture (which cost 5-10x more than silicones) which are stretchy micro molecules that flex and bend to your face - think of it like shapewear for your face to create a smooth canvas. When used underneath foundation, this can act as a "texture adjuster" to help reduce the appearance of foundation cakiness or creasing in your fine lines.
    • This emollient formula helps seal in your skincare as a form of daytime slugging - like providing insurance for your expensive skincare regime
    • A featherweight silky formula that quickly absorbs into skin, because we hated the heavy and slippery feeling of other silicone based primers
    • Oil in water formula means that it plays nicely with both water based and oil based products - this is perfect to use between sunscreen and makeup so that sunscreen doesn't dissolve makeup
    • Smells like green beauty. This 100% natural, plant based ingredient smells like the herbal plants, roots, stems and essence of every natural ingredient in the formula. Upon applying, it should dissipate after a few seconds.
    • Fun fact: This product was inspired by our founder's time training as a makeup artist in Asia where she learned that girls in Asia wear primers everyday (even on no makeup days) as a form of daytime slugging to protect their skin from irritating ingredients in makeup and pollution. An everyday part of your routine that's just as important as SPF.

    Made in Korea. 30 ML / 1 FL OZ

  • Consumer Study

    In an independent consumer study with 37 participants, after following instructions of sleeping in Pregame Primer for 28 days:

    • 100% of subjects agree that after sleeping in Pregame Primer, skin did not feel dry or dehydrated
    • 97% of subjects agree that after sleeping in Pregame Primer, skin did not appear red
    • 97% of subjects agree that after sleeping in Pregame Primer, skin did not feel irritated
    • 90% of subjects agree that after sleeping in Pregame Primer, they did not experience an acne breakout
  • How to use

    Think of Pregame Primer as the bridge between your skincare and makeup. Applied as very the last step of your skincare for daytime slugging or the first spot in your makeup routine.

    On makeup days: after sunscreen, massage three pumps of Pregame Primer across your face and neck, focusing on lymphatic drainage points to promote blood circulation and to create a smooth canvas to then apply your normal makeup routine. This helps makeup longevity by creating a barrier to prevent sunscreen and sebum from dissolving makeup.

    On no makeup days, Pregame Primer can be used as a form of daytime slugging to seal in your skincare. Because it has a radiant golden finish and a patented ingredient that stops redness at the skin's histamine level, it's a great skin tint replacement for busy days on the go!

Can't go without it

I just started my second tube of this primer, and it's the only primer I ever want to use now. I only use one pump and it works wonderfully with my foundation, it's a lovely last step to my skincare, and it has never made me breakout. In fact, I think it's actually helped my breakouts. I'm moving overseas in a month so I don't know what I'll do when I run out!

Probably the best

This is probably the best primer I have used and one that doesn’t clog your pores… You can find great primers but after a while they’re going to make you break out at least my experience… I can’t believe more people aren’t talking about the smell

Haha I was shocked but at the same time the smell goes away as soon as you put it on

but it is a thing 🤓

The only primer that has worked for me

This is the absolute best primer I have ever used. My skin is so sensitive and breaks out with most primers due to the silicones and other ingredients. This product actually makes my skin look and even feel nicer after!

Wonderful primer!

I am a makeup/skincare junkie and love to try out new products. The Pregame Primer kept popping up on my social media accounts so I had to try it. Now I have very dry skin and it can be pretty finicky when I try new products. I have been using the Pregame Primer for about 1 week now and no issues whatsoever (it usually only takes a day or so for my skin to let me know if it doesn't like something). I also love the consistency. It is a bit thicker than most primers I have tried which I love for my drier skin. It also sinks in rather quickly and I do feel my foundation has gone on much smoother than before. Great product at a great price point!
