La Base Pro is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 908.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Base I resisted adding any primer to my morning routine, but I decided to give it a try with this one. I definitely notice smoother skin and my makeup glides on easier with this as a base. I am 50 and never thought primer was important, but it makes a difference. I am loving this, and figure it only really adds a couple extra seconds to my morning routine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the product However, I feel like I am cheated since I can’t get all the product out of the bottle. The same applies to Lancôme makeup. I have used Lancôme for years but I am very disappointed in not being able to get the products out of their bottles. Has their bottles changed that prevents their products from coming out of the bottle even turning it upside down for days?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase I like the creamy feeling and mate coverage. Skin looks even and feels softer. Very good under make up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silk Feel, Love it! I bought this product for the first time last year and I love the silk feel on my skin. It's so easy to use, and it applies so effortlessly. It is a go to for my skin regimen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lancôme La Base Primer I have tried several different brands of Primers as a base for make-up. Lancôme La Base beats them all hands down. A little dab goes a long way. I am thrilled that Lancôme has made a travel size La Base! I wouldn’t be without it!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from awful base This product was so disappointing. It was like gook on my face. Please bring back Visionnaire 1 minute blur; that was a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! This is one of my favorite Lancôme products. Use it after moisturizer and before foundation and it goes on so smoothly. It really makes a difference!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love!!! This stuff is great! Leaves my skin so soft & smooth. Makes applying my foundation so easy, plus I use less foundation now. I have also noticed my skin looks healthier without any makeup. My only problem is now I have 1/2 full bottles of urban decay, & smashbox primers that I will never use again! For reference I have dry skin, so not sure how this would work with oily skin. But for me this is perfect.

Is the travel size and full size really just 0.3 oz difference?

Is the travel size and full size really just 0.3 oz difference? Buying 2 travel size would be give you more product and be cheaper than getting the full size bottle.
Asked by: Kitty
travel size are .23 oz/7 ml. Full size is .8 oz/25 ml. that makes each travel size 1/3 of a full size. i find that its fresher if you use the smaller travel sized ones. Once you finish one you can open a new fresh container. they last forever as well. you can get the small ones online for $10 each including shipping. why pay more if you don't have to? :)

How many months can the lancome primer last after opening?

Asked by: Aisha
Hello Aisha! Thank you for reaching out to us! La Base Pro can last up to 3 to 4 months, based on how much you use. Half of a pump is enough for your full face. We recommend you also using our Long Time No Shine Loose Setting Powder. A weightless powder that absorbs excess oil and smooths skin, setting your foundation for all day wear (available in two shades). For more information please view the link provided:

Does it help refine pores? If not - what Lancome under make-up product does this best?

I love a primer base, I have not tried this yet. I want something that sets my make-up, controls shine, but mostly need something that refines pores and diffuses fine lines. Will this help with the pores?!
Asked by: JesRed
I have the same issues and yes this product does both those things! I tend to get oily skin on nose and chin and this helps big time with shine control too. I have tried a few different brands, but this is the one i keep on hand at all times. Go to a beauty counter and see if they have any samples, once you try you will be hooked.

Would this product be good to use for very oily skin?

I have tried every makeup primer there is from drugstore brands to elite brands. From not so expensive, to very expensive...and nothing works for my skin. I just wanted to know if my very oily skin, would benefit from using this primer. thank you very much, Catrina
Asked by: Oily Cat
YES!!!! I love it however with it having SPF in it you will have a white face when taking selfies
