Goes on smooth and silky, helps makeup apply very smoothly. But really doesn't stand out from any other silicone based powdery finish primer that I have tried, maybe requires using less product than othets so thats a value. Not at all convinced it does anything to minimize look of pores. Feels like my normally rather dry skin gets oily an hour after my makeup is finished and acutally makes my foundation last less long. But that could just be me and my foundation, and tends to be my usual experience with this type of primer.
