Love!

By far, my favorite item I've received in a Birchbox. I love just using it by itself. Nice even coverage.

Flawless - No Make Up Look

Love, love, love this product.

I use it everyday. It is so light and keeps my skin looking flawless with little effort. It looks like I'm not wearing makeup which is my preference. If you want to look like a natural beauty then this product needs to be in your makeup bag. I use the color Meil , it looks orangey/yellow in the bottle, but don't let that deter you. It doesn't look like this after you have applied it. It blends in nicely with your natural skin tones :)

Ok Primer

I don't get the fuss about this product. It's ok, but nothing special. Doesn't really make the foundation last any longer or look any better. So why would I pay for something that does absolutely nothing? Bonus points for not breaking me out and having SPF 15. Oh and cute packaging.

I like this foundation primer a lot. I don't feel that it really moisturizes, but it does a great job of keeping my foundation/tinted moisturizer on my face throughout the day. I love that it has SPF in it. It also smells nice.

Good light foundation
Purchased

I needed a light foundation that had SPF in it, and this is great. I do still need to layer on concealer in places, and I wish that this came in a bronzer too since it is so sheer, but over all it is a great product!

My fav BirchBox goodie
Purchased

This product is amazing and totally my favorite BirchBox goodie to-date! I was originally concerned since it was rather light in consistency/texture, but it went on evenly and flawlessly. It covered my skin so well and minimized my pores! It did such a good job covering my skin and giving me a hint of makeup that I sometimes just wear it without foundation. It's a great primer for when I do put on foundation and lasts a very long time!

I received this product in my birchbox. I use this primer every single day. I apply foundation but I hate feeling something so thick on my face. This is so light and gives me a perfect tint of color. I use this product alone with now foundation. My sample is running out soooo... time to buy the full bottle!

Life changing

I am absolutely shocked this product has such mixed reviews. This is hands-down the best primer/foundation I have ever used. It makes my skin look flawless. I have always used Chanel primer before this and will never go back now. Love love love it.

Took a While to Appreciate
Purchased

When I first applied this to my face I was disappointed. I couldn't even tell that I'd used it. For some reason, I kept with it. I apply this and then a compact foundation and a setting powder.

Yesterday, I was in a hurry. I left off the primer and went straight to foundation and powder. As I looked in the mirror, I realized why I like this product. Without it, the pores on my nose really stood out! I went back to using all three items today, and my pores are back to being almost invisible. The blemish by my eyebrow had faded into the background as well.

I'm never going to have perfect skin. My forehead sweats even when the rest of me is dry. I don't expect miracles when I apply my make-up. I'm happy just to see an improvement or minimize the appearance of those blemishes. That's what this product does well for me, and that's why I like it.
