I haven't tried a great amount of foundations primers but I don't feel a need to because I how well this primer works! This product is translucent, thin, and fine. It feels amazing on due to the texture and the slight coolness of it to soothe. A little goes a long way with this stuff. It will keep foundation in place all day along with making skin feel balanced (at least mine). This should be great for all skin-types and should be given a try. The sun protection is also a plus.
