I love a good primer but didn’t find myself reaching for this one.

This stuff works and makes like a cloud over my skin. Makes my foundation just glide on.

Smooth

I received a sample of this in a box I ordered. Absolutely love it. My skin feels so soft & smooth. I don’t notice any smell (which I love). Already placed an order for this.

Good basic primer
Sampled

I mean, who doesn't know and love this primer? Lol. I usually use moisturizer in place of primer, but if I do use primer, it's this one. I just prefer to use lotion as it doesn't keep my skin hydrated

My Favorite Primer

This gel primer leaves your face feeling so silky and soft. It helps your foundation adhere to your face and doesn't leave you feeling cakey or oily. I absolutely love this primer and have purchased a full-size several times.

No More Fading Make-Up
Sampled

This is the first time I ever used a primer. This primer came out of the tube clear and felt like silk on my face. I wore foundation and make-up on top. When I came home after a 12 hour day, my make- up was not faded one bit and look as great as it did when I left home in the morning. I will definitely be ordering the full size tube.

My first love

This was my first experience in primers. I was spoiled young, and it's TRUE what they say the first one cuts the deepest lol. This primer gives a really soft even finish if you have clear skin and blurs pores. I would not use it if you have dry or patchy skin though it gets clumped or what you want to call it on it.
