I was scared that this would be a miss but I'm quite happy with it. It's affordable compared to others. The plastic container does not bother me at all. It is unscented and does not irritate my skin (no breakouts, too). It does not leave a heavy feeling on my face after application despite looking like gel.
The product does slightly blurs my pores and blemishes; slightly helping my skin to be a smoother canvas. Can't say if it really helps prolong and enhance the color of makeup but I like it since it is a good makeup base. A little bit goes a long way. I have oily skin but this primer does not cause oiliness (because I use Milk of Magnesia first then apply this so I know).
This is a pretty good primer for 6 bucks, but I'm not in love with it. It mattifies your face when applied, but I didn't notice any oil control throughout the day. It does minimize pores and smooth skin. I think it extends the wear of foundation a bit but not massively so. It goes on clear so you get no color benefits. It feels pretty good on the skin. Honestly it's just kind of an average product.
Absolutely in love with this primer! It's a cheap price and it works really Great! Leaves my make-up on all day! Goes on really smooth too! At first the product won't go through the pump but after pumping it a while it comes out. That's my only concern but other than that, fantastic product!
Awesome, but breaks me out.
I've been using this for about a week now and love it so much! This primer disappears as I put it on and smooths out my skin. A coworker even complimented my skin and asked what had changed ahaha. It keeps my face makeup looking fresh all day, and even kept my powder and blush on through one of those horizontal rains. But... BUT~ This primer gave me acne. It's the only part of my skincare routine that's changed for a month or so, and my face has broke out quite a bit since I started using it. It's such a shame. :/ I highly recommend this primer... if you don't have acne-prone skin.
I have oily skin and I totally recommend it
I bought this product because it was the cheaper one (it was this or smashbox). First the pump only gave my air so I opened it and the product looks like Vaseline, so I give it a few more tries and now it come out just nicely. It's a very dense product and it's a little harder to make it go thought the tube of the pump the first time. It feels really incredible in my skin when I put it with my fingers. It's like velvet! not oily texture at all. Not a single spot of shine! I use half a pump because its super effective, smooth and it spreads out a lot to apply on the entire face.
The packaging it's not the best for this kind of silicone cream texture product. I know that when the pump don't throw more product I will have to open it and get the remains out with a bush o something like that. But for the price I totally will buy it again. It help me a lot with my daily make up and I totally recommend it.
Does the job.
This primer is a very good value. I apply it with a foundation brush only on my T-Zone and apples of my cheeks. It really does make my foundation or powder applications look much smoother.
The packaging however is a major disappointment. I was only able to use the pump one time before I had to un-screw the lid and scoop out the product. Due to the opaque container, you can't tell how much product is in the bottle.
As much as I do like the primer, I will not re-purchase unless the packaging is changed.
