Balance Me Instant Lift Primer

We have our fair share of things we wouldn't mind getting rid of (pesky neighbors, traffic delays—to name a few), but helping our pores disappear would be at the top of our skincare wish list. This formula uses hard-working ingredients like hyaluronic acid and acacia gum to tighten and blur enlarged pores and smooth and refine your skin's surface for a glowy complexion.

Good primer for drier skin types
Sampled

I wouldn't say this product is pore minimizing, but I did really enjoy this product. After testing out the primer, I found myself reaching for this over my current Armani one. I thought it was light weight and gave me me a subtle glow. My makeup stayed on nicely and I had no skin issues with the product

I would note that the product does have a lot of oils in it, so if you have oily skin, this might not be for you.

Makes my face burn!
Sampled

Writing this review after using this primer this morning and it has been irritating my face all day. My face actually feels like it's burning while using this. It also does not cover up pores either, if anything, I feel like my pores are more noticeable today! Awful.

Good product

Overall, this is a valuable product that gives quick results. However, I don’t feel it’s better than any product I could pick up at the drug store, but it is much more expensive than any of those. I won’t be purchasing it.

I have been using this sample and I am honestly not sure what it is actually doing. It goes on easily, but I really don’t see any coverage.

Thicker

I felt like I had more layers of makeup that somewhat sealed my pores rather than the preferred lightweight feeling. I am on the fence about whether it caused any breakouts.

Nice Primer

A primer is very important. This was is really nice. It feels smooth and helps keep makeup on longer.

I didn't feel any lifting but the primer works great and doesn't make my sensitive skin react

BEST PRIMER
Sampled

This stuff is amazing thinking about buying the full sized even though I don't even wear makeup everyday. It looks awesome just as a bare-skin pick me up, and the next day your skin looks clearer and brighter.
