Keeps make up in place and evens/brightens skin tone
Purchased

I have never been one to use primers-I buy them and then quickly stop using them as part of my beauty routine because I never notice a big difference worth the extra step each morning. But this product changed my mind, and my beauty routine! I have very clear skin, but being rather fair I struggle with the evenness of my skin tone. This product is easy to apply (not to mention this bottle is HUGE and will last a LONG time) and evens and brightens my skin tone. It keeps my make-up in place much better than just applying it without a primer. I now use it daily on top of my sunscreen and see a big difference at the end of the day in how 'fresh' my make up looks. I have oily skin and I don't feel this adds any extra oil, and it doesn't make my make up cakey either!

Must have!
Purchased

I love this foundation primer. Oftentimes, I just wear this with a pump of moisturizer and go! It's nice and light but makes your skin look healthy and radiant, as the name implies. If I feel like I need more coverage, I put my BB or CC cream on top of it. Great product for the money!

Great primer for sensitive skin
Purchased

I have skin that needs hypoallergenic EVERYTHING! But this primer is great, gentle and works well. I use it as a moisturizer in the mornings and get a bit of shimmer with it. I don't even use foundation!

Would not repurchase

I really wanted to love this primer because the tint is so pretty but it just made my skin way too oily and greasy looking. This would be good to wear alone without foundation if you like a Dewey/glowing look.

Not for my oily skin type

I do love how easily this product applies to my skin, and the immediate pearlescent, glowing finish it gives, however, I find that only after two hours, my skin looks very oily. I would recommend this to people who have drier skin types.
