        Most of the bad reviews are because of misuse of the product a Mac artist gave me tips and showed me how to use it.Spot apply this in tiny dots over the face,use your fingers to gently blend once its evenly distributed gently use tapping motions and wait 2-3 minutes before applying your foundation

        As a primer it works great and gives you a healthy look

        Prep+prime SPF50 - Best ever

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Face Protect Lotion SPF 50:

        This is a wonderful product and I highly recommend it. It is a great sunscreen and it does not leave a white residue. It also replaces my moisturizer.

        WOW! WHAT JUST HAPPENED? AND NOT IN A GOOD WAY!

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Face Protect Lotion SPF 50:

        I'm so bummed! I thought I accidentally bought the wrong product but I see that the Prep and Prime I used to LOVE is no longer made. Old formula was creamy but not at all oily (sank in immediately and created an excellent smoothing base under foundation and lasted all day). The new formula is super greasy (even with very small amount used) and my make-up literally slips down my face. Very sad look! MAC, PLEASE PLEASE -- PRETTY PLEASE -- bring back the old formula soon! :)

        I have been a loyal user of this product for years, and honestly did not realize that they had changed it until I read the reviews of it! I highly recommend it, great to have such a high SPF in a face product and have never had an issue with it.

        I used this for makeup at Magic Kingdom and I am in love. It lasted all day and I didn't break out from it like other SPF I have used. It didn't break apart the foundation and looked great all day. I definitely have found my favourite thing to wear underneath my makeup.

        It's been 2 years, and still no change?

        By 

        from Canada

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Face Protect Lotion SPF 50:

        I wrote a review in 2015 addressing how horrible the new formula is. I used the old one for years and I loved it for oil control and SPF. I recognize the need to update products, but your update is a huge downgrade. It made my skin more oily and did not help makeup stay in place. Now, it's been 2 years. Look at the reviews. Maybe it's time to revisit that old formula? Make a few changes if necessary, but why are you still selling a product that has 2 stars in reviews? Does it actually sell that well? The day you re-formulate this for the better I will be in line to buy it.

        Why did they change the formula?

        By 

        from California

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Face Protect Lotion SPF 50:

        I used to love this product. The ingreadents zinc oxide I didn't realized they changed it. The website doesn't show the ingredients so I purchased it. Instant regreat. If they would change the formula then I would like it and purchase it agin until then I don't like it. It's just like any other sunscreen.

        Bring Back the Old formula!

        from Pittsburgh

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Face Protect Lotion SPF 50:

        This is sunscreen now, I used to purchase this religiously but they just turned it into sunscreen. The old formula I used to buy religiously, I'll be returning this now, please bring back the old formula. I'm using a different brand of primer now unfortunately.

        Best. Ever.

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Face Protect Lotion SPF 50:

        The absolute best and favorite step in my cosmetic and skin care routine! It's has some amazing ingrediants like lavendar and certain seed oils which soak into the skin giving moisture and mattifies. End result is a silky smooth feel and look! A little goes a long way.
