Beautiful Primer!

Love this primer, it's great for everyday use. I have been using less foundation lately and this is a great base product to start with! It helps my skin feel and look hydrated and blur my pores and imperfections! After using this primer, I just go ahead and spot conceal. Love how easily this blends in and feels like a light moisturizer on my skin.

I was gifted this product to provide unbiased, honest review.

This is everything!

This primer is a product I never knew I needed. I have been using different primers before, but this is my absolute best. My skin feels fresh and hydrated all day long and the make up looks absolutely fantastic! Great for cold winter days!

Literally "Essential"

Are your pores visible? Try this! During the application of this primer, your skin will be smoothed out, the visible pores covered, and your makeup will be flawless. It's vegan friendly as well as provides well-wanted hydration. Wow! It does have an AMAZING scent! It can be applied as much as you'd like. For me, I apply 2 pumps onto my hand and rub them gently into my face. Since I am a man, I do not use too much make-up, so this product already takes care of my skin on a daily basis. Make sure your face is clean before applying the cream. It feels wonderful and glides on smoothly. It doesn't need to sit; you can go right into the next step with the foundation. Covering your pores to create a seamless finish. The primer in my opinion is excellent. The pores on my face and my oily skin are ALWAYS visible to me! Trying to find a solution to those problems! It is my first win, though I haven't tried everything. The oil-free version doesn't runny. I have very large pores, so they are not completely unnoticed, but they are less visible and they have shrunk. The size of your pores can make all the difference.

Great every day primer!

I have dry sensitive skin, so I have to be careful about the products I use. And as much as need moisture on my skin, I hate products that feel too heavy or make my skin look wrinkly. SO this product is wonderful! It is clear in color, thin, lightweight, and goes on smoothly. I put it on after my AM skincare regimen, and it is perfectly light to go under my makeup. Not to mention it truly give my makeup long lasting wear, without looking sad, dull, or showing off the "creases" in my face.
