Hello Flawless Skin!
Sampled

I recently developed adult acne and have to be careful about what I put on my face. I want to wear makeup to work but worry about clogging my pores and disrupting my existing acne. I used this sample and noticed a difference right away in not only how my skin felt, but looked even before I put the makeup on. The redness in my skin went away and it created a thin layer over my skin making the texture of my skin appear smoother. Taking in to consideration that it also has salicylic acid and antioxidant-rich ingredients, this is a win-win for my skin.

Awesome find!!
Purchased

I've been trying to find a primer forever that would not break me out or clog my pores,especially with the weather and season changing. I actually used this primer during a baseball game and when ever I took pictures with my cousins, my face was not acting like a shiny mess. I also like the fact that it has salicylic acid because it is helping my skin fight my blemishes on my face. I also like the fact that it was light weight on my face and not heavy. Overall I am happy with this product.

No adverse reaction. It creates a great base for makeup. Breakouts are less frequent. Helps with shine.

Great!

I have insanely combination, sensitive, acne prone skin. This has been wonderful making my makeup stay on and stay flawless and it doesn't irritate or cause any pimples. I also loveeee how light it is. One of the best I've tried so far!

Wasn't impressed
Purchased

I was really looking forward to using this product as my skin is constantly an oil field, broken out mess. I was slick again after an hour of use in non-humid temperatures. I didn't notice much of a difference in my break-outs nor did my pores look any different. I will say that it is lightweight and suitable for my sensitive skin. I'm just very disappointed in this product!

Fabulous for oily skin.
Purchased

I don't suffer from acne, but I do have oily skin. The first time I used this I was amazed. After eight hours of wear I didn't have to powder, or blot my face. Normally, I have to touch up 3-4 times a day. If you have oily skin, I highly recommend giving this a go.

Not my personal fave
SampledPurchased

I love Jouer so I bought this one full sized before I tried a mini one. I like how smooth and gel like it feels going on, it's not quite as silicone-y as most primers can be. The thing that deters me is the smell, I expected a citrus or tea tree scent but it's just slightly chemicalized floral-ish. I didn't notice blemishes decreasing or not lasting as long, which is why it's taken a back seat in my makeup regimen. I still pull it out and try it now and then hoping to fall in love with it.
