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.

Didn't care for this product. It smells like sunscreen as a previous reviewer mentioned. Goes on heavy and sticky. I washed it off immediately. Also, it's weird that it is 99% natural, but looking at the ingredient list, it looks like it has 99 ingredients.

I can't even tell you how this product looked on my face, because I found the smell so off putting. Tube went in the bin and I washed my face. Probably just me, but was unwilling to give it a second chance.

In my experience you need glycerin or silicone in a primer for it to work. If it was an ingredient I didn't feel it. It's silicone that usually make a primer blurring. I t didn't do anything for my pores and didn't really even keep my makeup on

I've used so many primers and this is on the list as another one I wouldn't use. I love my primer and I'm not willing to switch.

The smell of this product was terrible. Sample size was very small and it didn't go on very nice.

Primers are not something that belong to my beauty routine. I use this amazing foundation that doesn't require me to use a primer and I've found most often that primers leave my skin feeling oily. Please do not send any more primers! Thank you!

This primer wasn't terrible, it just didn't do a great job extending the life of my make up.
