Awesome primer for getting a super smooth foundation finish. It doesn't take much. I don't use it daily but it help on those days where it feels like your skin looks dull and your make up just isn't going on right.

Love this primer!
Sampled

This primer is amazing. Lightweight and keeps my makeup on all day. Works great. I usually purchase this on a regular basis (the full size) So I was happy to get the sample size to take when I travel. Also, the sample size was great!

Not for me
Purchased

I did not like this primer. I found it to be too greasy for my skin. I gave it to a friend who loved it. Did have a good aroma.

Smooth primer
Purchased

I use this on a daily basis. It goes on very smooth, enabling my makeup to be applied much easier; only need to use a very small amount, which is good - it will last me a long time.

love, love, love this

I had never used primer before this. My face felt silky smooth, my foundation looked even and smooth. My makeup lasted all day. I will for sure purchase the full size of this product

Made my skin look flaky
Sampled

Left white flakes all over my skin like I had severely chapped cheeks. Couldn't even put makeup on over it, had to wash it off and start over with my usual primer.

Awesome surprise
Purchased

Lightweight primer that glides on. Can't believe I never used a primer before but just a small amount makes my foundation easier to apply, it looks better and lasts a full day.

Favorite Primer.

I have tried a lot of primers and I find this one to be the best. Whenever I use it my makeup stays on and doesn't move one bit. I also have combination skin and this primer works the best with it. Any makeup lover would love this primer.

Picture perfect

Love using this before photos. It takes away shine & provides a nice matte finish. I plan on buying this when my sample runs out.

Can't live without
Purchased

I thought all I ever needed was a good moisturizer, but I tried a sample of this and the difference is night and day. I love it! I ran out and my makeup didn't even look the same, my skin didn't feel soft anymore. Love this primer!
