Birchbox Breakdown

The secret to the “no makeup” look often involves, well, a lot of makeup. But thanks to this one-and-done multitasking primer, our days of layering product over product are over. Packed with ultranourishing ingredients (think: grapefruit, apple, and antioxidant white tea) as well as soothing royal jelly, this lightweight primer doesn’t just love your skin—it adores it. Beyond smoothing your complexion and minimizing the look of pores and wrinkles, it also provides intense hydration and anti-aging benefits, leaving skin naturally luminous. If you’re going for a more dramatic evening look, it creates a smooth canvas to help makeup apply more evenly and last longer.

How to Use

Apply evenly with fingertips for radiant results. Use on its own or as a primer before makeup.

Good primer but NOT hydrating like it claims

I tend to have dry skin and was excited at the prospect of a primer that "provides intense hydration". While I certainly saw an improvement in how long my make-up stayed on throughout the day, after 3 days of using the product, I noticed my skin was visible much dryer... especially around my eyes. This accentuated my wrinkles- not minimized them. [And yes, I mixed the primer with my moisturizer before application, just as the directions state should be done. But- the product was still very drying to my skin.]

So- this product may be good for those with young skin or skin that tends to be a bit oily... but if you're over 40 or you tend to have dry skin- this product is NOT a good choice.

I love the way it makes my face feel. I love the light, pleasant fragrance. Provides a great primer for my mineral powder foundation. I use it even when not wearing makeup.

In love

Tried a sample of this and it is the best of numerous primers I have tried. It tingled as it dried and post-makeup, my skin feels nice and tight. This is worth every penny!

Just okay

After reading all the positive reviews I thought this would really be the best primer out there. Well it really is just okay. I was hoping it would be more luminous but it is definitely not. I would not repurchase this (pretty pricey) primer.

Absolutley love all Jane products but this is one of my favorites! I mix it with my foundation to give it a more shear look on days I want less makeup, or wear under on heavier makeup days. Even on its own it helps even out my skin tone. It SMELLS FANTASTIC and doesn't make my very sensitive skin break out.
