Rated 5 out of 5 by natalietweeter Love this primer when it's on sale
This primer is great for my slightly dry/combination and acne-prone skin. I've been using it for roughly the last nine months off and on, and started using it every day I would wear makeup about two months ago. It helps smooth my skin, not to the point that you can't tell that I have acne (obviously), but my skin definitely feels prepped and ready for makeup application after using this. I wait about a minute before putting my foundation and concealer on so that this can dry on my skin, because if I put my foundation on while it's still "dewy," I've noticed my makeup doesn't last as long throughout the day. I also live in Southern California, and the past two weeks have been unbearably hot and humid (hottest day I think was about 95 deg. F); but every time I've worn this primer, my face makeup has stayed in place almost perfectly throughout my 8-hour school days. I do reapply my mineral powder throughout the day though since it's a habit of mine and most of the time I need a little reapplication. To address the value of this particular primer: I really wish this was cheaper because on a college student budget, $15 at regular price is a bit expensive. I usually order this when it's on sale for about $9, which is a little more doable. I've purchased this 3 times, so that means a tube lasts roughly ~three months with 5-7 days worth of application. I am about to run out of my third tube within the next week, so I plan on visiting a TBS store or ordering online to pick up another tube and a couple other products. Overall, I recommend this primer for people with slightly dry or combination skin.

I've never been one to use primer as I never really felt the need for it, but this product has completely changed my mind. After moving to the desert and going without any make-up for a while I noticed that when I would put on foundation it would look a bit flakey in my T-zone and really age me worse than without any on. Being as my skin is overly red I really like the coloring after foundation but needed a way to minimize the flaking. I tried scrubs with minimal improvement and applying lotion before my foundation but nothing really seemed to work. This to date has been the ONLY thing that has worked. It does not improve my skin, but you can feel the moisturing when you apply it and it gives me a smooth looking surface even where I normally flake. If there was honestly onlyone product I would make sure I never ran out of this would be it.
