It's all about the primer
Purchased

My daughter's wedding was in August. The long, HOT dog days of summer. With no time for touch-ups, it was imperative that my make up stay put. This primer was exactly what I needed. I looked as good at the end of the day as I had at the beginning.

We invest so much time and effort and money into finding the best make up for our skin - make sure you give your make up the best possible start with a really really great primer.

The only primer for blemish prone skin
Purchased

This primer I received in one of my boxes, and I had to buy it after it was done. This is one of the only primers that actually doesn't make my blemish-prone skin break out after using. I use it every morning, regardless of if I'm wearing makeup, it has become a staple in my beauty routine.

Good on my sensitive skin!

This did exactly what it was intended on my skin. I enjoyed the silky and smooth feeling of the gel.

absolutely works

This product is amazing. I typically have very oily skin and have used those oil absorbing tissues for years. The OC8 gel keeps my face oil free for at least 6 hours! I also use it on make up free days and my skin color is even and shine free.

Nice Product

I occasionally need something to tone down a shine, and this product seemed to eliminate the blotters I would normally use. I did not have a chance to test it in smoking hot weather, but I was impressed not to have the 5:00 shine at the end of the day.

Good Product, but not necessary for me.

I did enjoy the use of this product. I tend to have dryer skin, so I'm not usually fending off much shine. However, I did notice that the usual shine build-up as the day progressed was cut down quite a bit. I would definitely recommend to my friends with oilier skin!

Love this stuff!

I was lucky enough to get three samples of this product in my Birchbox a few months back! I tried it this past week and I'm AMAZED at how it worked for me. Not only did it help my makeup stay on without "the shine" coming through ... it made a difference in my ruddy complexion! Not sure how or why, but it did. I always wear a heavy foundation to cover the redness of my skin, but after using this product for a week, the redness has toned down A LOT and I felt comfortable enough to wear a lighter foundation! I'll be purchasing the full size today!
