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

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.

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

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!

Love this product...probably the best I've tried. Will definitely purchase again. Makeup stays on longer and looks great too! It is light and doesn't feel heavy on your skin

Good feeling

I would never use a primer everyday, but this does the job when I need it. The foundation look smoother and my skin has a natural look
