Ok this was just not for me. I don’t like that it goes on and I can’t feel it spreading around. Also I broke out from this. It filled my poors. And I also really felt like my makeup didn’t last. It’s not that it felt greasy but it was like my makeup was slippery. (I’m not sure how to describe that.)

It left my skin smooth and velvety. But I have acne prone skin, so it made me break out.

I have normal skin that is dry in the winter. I’m obsessed with skin care and prep. This primer is not for me. It makes it difficult to blend my makeup (which is light coverage) and it pills no matter how long I’ve let my serums and moisturizer rest.

I used this primer and after putting my makeup on you could totally see all the wrinkles on my forehead and it balls up underneath and I have to rub it off worst primer EVER

Greasy.

I couldn't see a difference in the appearance of my skin after application. I wouldn't recommend to anyone. Actually, I wouldn't recommend any type of primer product to anyone.
