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.

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.

Nope, didn’t like it, not a great primer for those of us that wear mineral makeup, the consistencies just don’t jibe well and makes you have to redo all your makeup

Makes foundation pull up on face
Sampled

This stuff leaves my face feeling strange and gives it a terrible texture. It makes my foundation pill into weird tiny pieces on my face. Do not recommend.

My sample size didn't really have much prouduct in it. I was really looking forward to try it. So I only could use it not even once.
