Best Primers For Oily/Acne Prone Skin

Hi Everyone,
So Far in the Makeup for Acne-Prone Skin series,I have compiled Best FoundationsBest Compact Powders & Best Concealers For Oily/Acne Prone Skin. So today I will be compiling Best Primers For Oily-Acne Prone skin.
Primers are base make up product which improves the longevity of makeup, provides oil control and gives a smooth and matte finish. Primers are essentially silicone-based products which fills up pores, skin imperfections and give a flawless base for foundations, concealers, etc.Silicones/Dimethicones are mildly comedogenic and unless you have severe acne,you can get by these primers. So if you have high acne-prone tendency or sensitive skin,I would advise you to go for a patch test. So today I will be listing oil-free and non-comedogenic primers for oily-acne prone skin.If you don’t see the obvious primers like Benefit Porefessional and others in the list that would be because they are comedogenic.
