Recently I purchased Fyrinnae’s Velvet-Gel Silica primer for the second time. It contains NO silicones.
The Website Claims:
With about 50-60% micro-silica spheres, this primer creates a smooth finish, blurring fine lines and pores
Stops excess oil
Allows any type of foundation to be applied more easily
The Ingredients are:
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Silica (silicon dioxide), Purified Water, Acrylates/C-10 Alkyl Acrylates(this makes it into a gel – very,very small amount), Polyaminopropyl Biguanide, Sodium Benzoate
$7 for 1 fl.oz
Does it live up to its claims?
This primer has a tall list of claims, and in my eyes, it lives up to every single one of them. It doesn’t break me out. It’s colorless. You only need the tiniest amount to cover your entire face. It helps my skin look flawless. You can use it without foundation or with foundation. It keeps the oilies at bay.

Would I purchase again?
Yes, this is my second time purchasing this primer. It’s been reformulated slightly since the first time, and I think it’s better than ever. Before it came in a jar, and these days I detest jars. Now it comes in an awesome squeeze tube. It’s an AMAZING buy for the price. Seriously, $7 for 1 oz? It’s a steal. My other two favorite primers are $30 for 1 oz and $11 for 1 oz. So this is less expensive, fewer ingredients (fewer things to be allergic to), good quality product and a good container. I whole heartedly recommend this primer. It’s another winner from Fyrinnae.
