Not Sure...

I am not sure what the big deal is about this product. It is pricey, and all it did for my skin was to make it break out. I have tried several primers and have never had that problem before. I have mature skin, with dry patches, and am not used to having to deal with pimples again.

LaFace Primer
Purchased

Love this product. It goes on smoothly and gives superior coverage. I immediately purchased some from Birchbox after using it few times. You will be very happy with the LaFace Primer. I am 66 and it works well with me.

Soooooooooooo Nice!
Purchased

I received the small sample months ago. Before ordering the full size, I promised myself to use up all the multiple primers I already had in my drawer. You know how that goes, you have a million of them, and you are constantly trying to find the best one for your skin!

This primer hands down is the best I've ever used. Your makeup brushes just glide over your face, and your makeup sits so nicely on top of this primer. It's a game changer in my book. It puts all my other primers to shame!

Pricey, yes, you bet it is. But like everyone else said, it goes a loooooooooooong way. Just a tab will do!
Buy it, you won't be sorry!

Not what I remembered
Purchased

I fell in love when I received a sample but fought buying because of the steep price. I ended up giving in and purchasing but regret it as the product seems totally different in consistency and it's making me break out which I did not do when using the sample. Bummer...

Clear Gel Primer
Purchased

This Primer surprised me when I first opened the tube. It is a very clear soft gel that smoothly softens your skin and immediately soaks in. The tube is so large for the price, unlike other primers you can purchase, it will last a long time. Your foundation, BB, or CC goes on so smoothly and you don't need as much, love this product.

Best primer!

I love this primer! It is pricey but no product has ever made my skin feel as soft as this has. My makeup stayed on all day and it lasted me a long time.

Can I cover my entire body in this?

This is 100% worth the price. Goes on smooth, makes make-up last forever and makes your face feel softer than a baby angel's tush. A little bit goes a long way!

So good!
Purchased

I've never used a primer before but this made my skin so soft and smooth! I got one for my sister at all and she's not into make up but she swears by it too! A little goes a loooooong way. Worth the price.

Prime!

I don't use primer except for the very rare special occasion when I'm, like, in a wedding or doing a huge interview or something. But I finally got around to trying this to do a video shoot and Oh...my...gosh. It's amazing. The teeny tiny sample I got in my Birchbox will probably last me for the 15 or so times I'll use primer in the next couple of years, but when it comes time to buy a full-sized primer of my own, LAFACE is first on my list!!! It's very, very spendy, but (I think) would be a really solid investment.

Worth Every Penny!

This primer is a must have for anyone that has oily to combination skin. I have tried a multitude of primers and none even come close to what this primer achieves. It not only mattifies my oily prone skin for hours but it also evens out fine lines and wrinkles. My makeup goes on flawlessly and stays for hours due to it's superb oil control. I also have extremely sensitive skin due to having eczema and psoriasis and I have had no skin reactions to using it what so ever. Don't let the price scare you. A little bit goes a long way and it will last you for a long time. Not to mention help your makeup last as well because you're not having to reapply it over and over.
