My oily skin sucks up foundation, which looks bad after about 7 hours' time. I also have enlarged/scarred pores on my nose and indented (rolling) scars on both cheeks, as well as one large box scar on my left cheekbone.
Can anyone recommend a primer that's known to be good--oil-free, non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic--for highly sensitive, acne-prone skin?
PS: I really can't afford high-end products at this time, so something that's good and reasonably priced is what I'm seeking--if it exists.

This stuff is extremely greasy though when you put it on so you have to let it dry a bit before putting on makeup.
This isn't a bad one to try to see if you like the idea of adding a primer into your makeup routine but if you can ever afford a high-end primer there are some that get really good reviews on sephora.com and some that are even non-comedogenic. I'm still using Hard Candy though because it was huge so it'll probably last damn near forever.

I dont' know if there's any non-comedegenic primer out there! but I used this website called Cosdna to check if they might irritate skin ( I have sensitive skin). Here's the ingredient for this primer http://www.cosdna.co..._3c2e47354.html and I would say it's not bad!
Also you can look into BB cream as it's less likely to clog pore. I am trying to stay away from foundation now.. some BB creams have very good coverage! (much much better than tinted moisturizer!) Hope it helps!

I have to ask: what does BB stand for? I confess that the word cream makes me cringe, as I associate it with clogging pores and causing serious acne issues, including cysts/nodules.

I want to clarify that I never wore a tinted moisturizer. I wore a tinted prescription-only medication that was sulfur-based. It was the only form of cover-up I could wear on my face without any problems. It was specifically formulated to help fight acne and, so, wouldn't irritate existing breakouts or contribute to new ones.

The only drawback is the cost; I find it to be relatively pricey. But I'll still use the three sample packs that my derm. asst. gave me to try.
