Just the idea of adding more layers to your skin care routine can make anyone who is blessed with oily skin cringe. Don't dismiss primers, though, as they can keep your makeup from slipping and smudging through the day—you just have to find the right one. Focus on finding oil-free primers (duh, right?) that tackle shine, and apply before foundation all over your face or just to the trouble areas like your T-zone. And there's a primer perfect for you, no matter your budget.
We've created a list to find the best primer for oily skin across four budget categories: the Splurge-Worthy, that centers on luxury brands $45+; the Treat Yourself zone that hovers around $30; Wallet-Friendly for around $20, and the Super Steals you can snag for less than $10. Now you can look fresh-faced even when the temperatures start scorching in the summer.
You want to give your mom the dream vacation to Paris, but your bank account says you can barely afford a bottle of wine and some cheddar—we get it.

Silk'n Blue is a revolutionary new way to treat acne. The dual energy system not only kills acne-causing bacteria, it dehydrates o...il-producing glands to prevent future breakouts. The result is visibly clearer skin in just 3-7 weeks. The at-home acne treatment system uses dual energy therapy to treat acne completely. First, Blue uses patented light energy to destroy existing bacteria beneath the skin's surface. Next, the dermal heating system targets overactive oil glands and dehydrates them to prevent future breakouts without the uses of harsh topical products and ointments that dry out skin. The fractional blue light and infrared heat offers non-invasive, gentle acne treatment. Blue light penetrates the skin to destroy acne-causing bacteria deep within the follicles. Infrared initiates deep tissue heat and offers a drying effect on the sebaceous glands. A temperature sensor tip ensures that the skin's surface will not rise above 41 degreeC/106 degreeF. System includes:- Silk'n Blue Acne Treatment Device- Wall Charger- Training ManualHow to use: Step 1: Press the power button to turn the device on.

Its compact, high-tech design is perfect for travel, and to make treatments even faster there is a gliding method that allows you to just hold down the trigger and the device will continuously emit pulses. The device, which features 150,000 pulses of hair removal energy, is designed for use on the face from your cheekbones down, your legs, underarms bikini lines and other areas of the body where hair removal is desired. Please note that for those with dark or tanned skin, the light will not detect the difference between skin and hair pigment, therefore it will not flash and treatment will not be effective. Those with blonde, grey or white hair lack pigment in their hair and are not candidates for treatment, either. Research results: With just two-to-four self treatment sessions, most user tested experience visually diminished hair that is comparable to results products by professionally administered laser procedures, and, in addition:- 80% experienced a noticeable reduction in hair after three months- 90% preferred using Flash & Go Freedom to visiting a spa or salonHow to use: Begin with clean-shaven skin (no waxing or plucking).
