Helped Hide Pimples While Treating Them
SampledPurchased

This primer worked great on priming my pimples for foundation, and I also saw a reduction in my acne. I use this product primarily on my chin and my nose as these are my acne-prone areas, and I saw a reduction in acne, and I did not see oil build up, as I've seen with other primers. I would definitely recommend this product to friends and family.

Fabulous Primer
SampledPurchased

I am always hesitant to try new primers but this one was absolutely fantastic! My skin has been breaking out a little since I had my son a few weeks ago and this primer reduces redness and heals the blemishes. It really preps my skin for foundation or a BB cream. I purchased a full size version of this before my sample even ran out!

I am always open to trying out new products for acne treatment so I was excited to try this. It was GREAT, I have already used all of it. It goes on good under my normal makeup, there were a few times when it got a little cakey but that could be do to the moisturizer I was using.

Lightweight, nice finish
Sampled

I used this small sample while traveling, I was very impressed. I used this primer and kept my normal makeup routine .. The first day I applied the primer and makeup at 830 AM took a nap in the afternoon and woke up at 630 PM and looked like I just put my face on. I felt the primer had the same effect the following days I used it. It has a nice matte finish as indicated and hides my flawed red skin without feeling too heavy.

This is a nice primer. It is light and smooth and applies easily on the skin. I wish the sample size was a little bigger so I could try it a few times before buying.

I didn't know primers combined acne treatment and pore treatment! When I found this in my birch box I was so excited and had to purchase! The full size is huge and works great! Love!

Great concept, but I wish it worked more like a BB cream or CC cream. Why has time for this extra step?
Sampled

I received a teeny tiny joke of a sample in my September Birchbox. While I was a bit curious to try a new, super expensive anti-blemish primer, I was expecting a lot more quality for the price of a PRIMER (not even I had high hopes for it. It's a great concept, but I thought it had an off-putting smell, and I don't like the idea of adding another step to my morning routine, when all I need is a good acne cream (like Retin-A) with a full coverage BB or CC cream with a natural finish. It's annoying when Birchbox thinks we will want to pay retail for brands we've barely heard of (like Gilchryst & Soames, ugh, known for being the favorite "faux luxury" brand among wannabe swanky hotels. Although it's nice to swipe a few hotel freebies every now and again, let's be real... G&S is the cheapest so-called "luxury" bath and body and no one in their right mind would actually seek those products out to drop $20-25 on some seriously bland and boring lotion. After all, why buy something at retail when you can find it all over Ebay for like 90% off? Sorry if I sound bitter in my tangential rant, but BB sent me G&S lotions back-to-back for three or four consecutive weeks, so I wanted to jump out a freaking window!
