I have great skin, ivory, no major problems. I was so excited about this product. However, when applied it's it feels like a mask. Offers no type of coverage, so when I apply the smallest amount of foundation. The product clumps together. I have never been more disappointed. I'm hoping the dry winter months to come will help the product work better. Otherwise it's a waste of money.

Sadly Disappointed

I read all the reviews and was super excited about this primer. I used it as how everyone has recommended but after a couple of hours I feel that I have more oil on my face than before! Is this normal???? This product says for all types of skin but maybe not right for my oily skin.
I have also noticed an increased amount of pimples now on my forehead that I used to not have and a couple on my cheeks so I'm thinking my face just does not like this product!

Too waxy
Purchased

I wish I liked this product more, but I prefer primers that are more moisturizing and fill in your pores. This formula was kind of waxy and my makeup seemed to just stick to the primer...it made it hard to blend and my face looked streaky where the primer was applied. It could be because I use tinted moisturizer instead of foundation. The stick formula is a good idea in theory, but in my opinion it doesn't make a great primer.

Best Primer Ever
Purchased

This primer is amazing, but is nothing like a normal primer lotion. The consistency is hard and waxy - kind of like a giant tube of lip balm. It goes on very sheer but provides a fantastic base for foundation. When using this primer before applying foundation, I get better coverage and only need half the amount.

Love the cute packaging!
Purchased

I've been using the primer for about a week now. I purchased it to go along with the Hello Flawless Oxygen foundation, and am really happy with the pairing.

And it's fun to have a new cute item for my make-up too.

Benefit has done it again

I got a card telling me about this in my July box, along with a sample of the Benefit foundation, I loved the foundation and went out to buy it, while I was out getting the foundation they had a tester for the 15-hour primer. I ended up buying it, and I use it everyday.

Far from flawless

I was surprised to only read of one other person having the same disappointing experience I did with this primer. While the product itself applies nicely, trying to apply foundation on top of this primer is disastrous! Problems included smearing, clumping, pilling- and this was WITH using the recommended Hello Flawless Foundation. I have a few Benefit products that I adore, but this primer left my foundation a far cry from flawless, let alone for 15 hours.
