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.

Instant Life Primer

I didn't care for this primer. It left my skin feeling really tacky and almost slimey. I have oily skin and it didn't do my foundation any favors throughout the day with longevity.

No product!

Can't really review this item because when I went to use it there was only one drop of product in the tube! What a let down.

The smell
Sampled

Oh my the smell of so strong and perfume like that I can't wear it on my face. It's too overwhelming. It feels nice going on but the smell can not be overlooked. It's a very strong rose scent.

The tube was empty so I wasn't able to use it. I wish I was able to try the product considering I love primers.

Not impressed
Sampled

There was no "instant lift" on me, while it was 'just okay' as a primer for my make up, it did not live up to it's claims.

I did NOT like this product at all. It was sticky and tacky like and it did not have a present smell. Even if I did like the product I still would have been disappointed because it was such a nice size sample bottle ... with nothing in it. I had to squeeze the entire tube super hard just to get a few small dots of product.
