Kind of clings on to dry skin if your skin is dry. And doesn’t really soak in to me.

Its not the favorite
Sampled

I just got around to using this. Like the title said it’s not my favorite. First off, the tube was too big for the amount they gave me. So big in fact that I when I tried to squeeze it out it would not come. I finally worked it down jus for it all to goop out. I used it and broke out in a rash... Everywhere.

Will not use
Sampled

I do not use primers, I have 12 different brands and I just don’t use them. Maybe if it were anti-aging I’d think about it.

Too wet, no coverage
Sampled

I only use primer & a dusting of bronzer to help minimize my pores, and I noticed absolutely no difference with this. It also goes on super heavy and leaves my face feeling oily and sticky.

Not the best

Unfortunately I have not had luck with any Whish products. For this primer specifically, it broke me out terribly. I applied it to half my face to see how it wore, and I had break outs all on half my face. Definitely do a wear test before applying to the whole face!

Unless a primer has spf it feels like an unnecessary step

Meh

This product smells good and went on with a clean feeling and dried quickly. However, it did absolutely nothing I expect from a primer. It did not moisturize nor did it reduce the appearance of my pores. If anything, it accentuated the appearance of my pores and left my foundation with the most cakey look I've ever had. I had to rewash my face and start over.

Clumps my makeup
Sampled

This keeps the make up on the surface, which I guess would be ok for a photo shoot but in y everyday, if I touch my face, or my shirt touches my face my make up like clumps and comes off on everything.
