SkinPerfect Primer SPF30 by Dermalogica

"I was sent this product and fell in love. I have very oily skin and I have a difficult time using makeup primers because of it. I am also sensitive to silicone based products and have tried other primers with silicone and had no success with them. At first I was hesitant to use this primer because it contained silicone but this is not your run of the mill silicone primer. The texture is smooth and easy to apply. It's tinted but the color fades to almost clear. It has just enough color to even out slight skintone discoloration without altering your skin color or undertones so you can still use your regular shade of makeup. A little goes a very long way and you only need a little to spread on your face. I have used it two different ways. One as a spot primer to help even out texture and flaws and then another as a full face primer. Both worked splendidly. My skin felt great, and my makeup lasted all day!!! What makes this product special is that it's a skin treatment, a primer and it helps to protect your skin from the dangerous rays from the sun. I love that this has an SPF 30 but you don't smell the SPF or feel the burn some products with SPF can cause on skin. I'm in my early 30s and I let my mom borrow it. She's nearly 60 and fell in LOVE with this product and took it from me and is using it now. I went and bought a new tube from a local Dermalogica dealer because I couldn't go a day without it. I highly recommend this. You will love this product. Oily skin, aging skin, it doesn't matter. It glides on smooth and helps your skin look luminous and fresh, protects it from the sun and prolongs makeup wear. Win win!!! Works especially well with the Active Moist moisturizer before applying." - ulta user

The Liquid Silk Canvas Featherweight Protective Primer by Tatcha

"The original formula didn't quite work for me, so I had super high hopes on this liquid version and I had to snatch one as soon as it became available at my local Sephora. I have super dry skin (& maturing) so usually any mattifying products can be problematic. I stopped wearing foundation all over my face. If I do, it'd be partial or lightly concealing certain areas then translucent powder. So I needed something to somehow fill out pores and hiding imperfection of my skin surface. This is perfect product for that! This liquid formula glides on my skin literally silky and it's so smooth. It gives me nice satin finish and for dry skin person like me, I almost won't need setting powder after this. Or I can only lightly powder on my T-zone so it keeps powder usage to minimum. I use to love Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm, which I think is very similar except Josie's formula is balm and heavier. I found Tacha's last longer and feels more polished. Formula-wise, it feels almost identical to TOUCH IN SOL No Poreblem Primer. It's way more affordable and works so I liked it too, but I couldn't live with the strong smell. Tatcha, on the other hand, the smell is so gentle and soothing I found. Anyways, my point is, If you have dry skin you're gonna love this. All of Tatcha's products have skin loving ingredients as well, which is a big plus. This is the only product I can wear to look nicer worry-free. Thank you for creating this, Tatcha!!" - sephora user

"i started off with studio fix compact w/t fondation I found a new love that day. love that stuff too, it started the ball rolling to trying mac's full line. i cant believe the quality of everything ive tried. no wonder its used by make up artists and worn by models and on red carpets all the time. I totally love this stuff. i have the pickiest skin ever. its sensitive and dry and oily and gets breakouts..I get it all.. this stuff doesn't give me any problems. it makes my skin smooth.. my skin gets patches. this stuff evens it out and helps ALOT with the redness if not takes it away. (depending on how bad it is that day) i don't wear make up all the time so i thought this stuff would feel heavy but NOPE! it goes on rubs in smooths everything out and makes my mac makeup.(which i only started using on my honeymoon last June of 2010and ill never change. I'm trying everything over time and so far soooo good! mac stays on really well)this stuff makes it even better. love it. it really makes a difference. i always thought primer was just a gimmick Have to say i was totally wrong there. no matter your skin type u should definitely try this stuff its very worth the money. and I've still got my first bottle. i bought this stiff at least 9 months ago. u only need about 3/4 of the size of a pea. IF THAT. seriously don't use more or you'll be simply waisting it. and this is not something u want to waste. its practically worth its weight in gold or more!!!!!. GIVE IT A GO. I BET YOULL LOVE IT. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - M·A·C user

Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer by Fenty Beauty

A shine-stopping, pore-diffusing primer that smooths the way for better foundation application and longer wear with an instant retouch effect.

Hydra Veil Primer by Illamasqua

"I purchase quite a lot of new items from beauty bay and I kept on seeing this item, but I ignored it as this primer was about to take some serious coin off me!!!! BUT I have acne prone, open pores and dry/combination skin and this primer smoother all my acne scarring and made my makeup sit on my face like no other primer has!!!!! My face looked fresh and natural. BUT kept the coverage of my Estée Lauder double wear foundation (which is my go to foundation). I used quite a lot of different base products to test this out and it continued to hide my pores and make my skin feel soft and smooth!!! Also, with other primers such as the laura geller under makeup primer and the benefit porefessional. This continues to keep your makeup on for your every working day (8-10 hours) I've never been so impressed with a product and I've continued to tell everyone about this!!! I also have done my sisters makeup and her base is acne prone and oily skin and it worked on her face flawlessly!!!! If you want a long wearing FLAWLESS base where products to sit beautifully on top of it, then this primer is for you. It is expensive, but I buy a lot of makeup and it still is pricey for me. BUT it is so worth it and I have used it for 2 months now and there is still some of it left! So £17 a month on a primer is cheaper then the other primers I mentioned previously!! PLEASE BUY THIS!!!❤️" - beautybay user

Glowy Makeup Serum by Laneige

"I’m a big Laneige Fan. So when I saw that they are releasing this Glowy serum on Sephora i knew I had to get it. Was lucky enough to get this product as a gift from the brand via octoly. This beautiful dropper serum is comprised of Ceramide Hydration Gel that works well in keeping the skin hydrated and plump, Diamond Mineral Powder serves as a smooth base that blurs pores leaving the skin silky and ready for foundation or sunscreen. It also has various fruit extract & oil to keep the skin looks fresh and calm. This can be used as a serum follow by a moisturizer or at the last step of skincare routine follow by your base make up and/or wear it alone for that natural, healthy glow. Im so glad this didnt irritate me and i love the concept of makeup & skincare in one! I wear it daily & honestly this makes me look radiant, plump and my dry patches on nose and chin area arent prominent. I also like that this goes well on top of sunscreen for extra boost of glow. Glad to report that my skin didnt feel oily at all through out the day. It doesnt pile to and you can really see it on top of your skin without any stickiness or heaviness. Laneige never fail to surprise me with their products may it be skincare or make up." - sephora user

Touche Eclat Blur Primer by YSL Beauty

"This months i was lucky to try Touch Eclat Blur Primer. I tried many primer in the past who do very well in smoothing the skin and preparing it for make up. The YSL Primer certainly does that too, but has a unique selling point: it contains what’s needed to illuminate my skin without making it shiny. You will love it!My pros:-A little goes a long way! Just a small amount works in the whole face, leaving your skin smooth, matte and illuminated!-It leaves the skin so smooth and perfected that you can also wear it on his own on your “no make up day” ;-)And as it is Touch Eclat, it won’t dull your skin tone but on the contrary lift it for the whole day, giving it this healthy look we all want!-It makes the foundation stay longer: for those long days, I use YSL All Hours Fondation so I must admit that I have no issues with make up fading through the day. But in those days where I use a BB cream or a lighter foundation, i noticed the difference when i use the primer. My skin stay smooth, prepared and fresh all day.-The illuminating effect: that is probably the biggest difference you will see with other primer out there. They don’t have this Touch Eclat effect! We all want to look naturally healthy with a glowing skin however not shiny. I cannot go back to previous primer! I just love this boosted effect on my skin! Addiction Alert!Cons: Well not much. It is quite pricey but as you only need a tiny bit, you can view this as an investment. You won’t regret the purchase! Less" - yslbeauty.co.uk user

No Poreblem Primer by Touch In Sol

"Omg love love love. I tried this product in my ipsy bags of course the sample size and I order the full size online. I love trying samples but I have to be like wow about a product for to purchase a full size of anything which most things I'm like it's okay so I never buy full size products and idk if its in my head but I feel like samples are always perform better than the full size. I feel like if your dry or oily you would love this product. My skin isnt really texturze so I dont know if it would cover texture. By far the best primer I have tired and I tried a lot including high end and drugstore. This primer fills in your pores I dont know it's a formula I never felt before. Its a really thin light smooth formula like velvety feeling. I even like it better than my smashbox photo finish primerizer. Which are not even the same type of product at all but since I'm a very dry I love that primer and is my go to. I am a dry skin gal I mean extremely dry but then I tend to be a hit oily on my tzone as the day goes on. so typically I dislike pore filling primers. This does not add extra dryness to ur skin at all. I fell like it fills in your pores like really really good and, smoothens your skin. I dont have huge huge pores. Has a hit of smell but not too strong the scent is plesent. I even apply this on my undereyes of course the tinest amount and I loved it. I have major undereye creasing and dry undereyes and I feel like no matter what I use my little wrinkles dont go away and I mean I dont have a lot of wrinkles but it worked to smooth it out. Just believe me when I tell you need this primer in your life and its worth every single penny. I dont even know how to explain this product but I just know its beyond good buy it and try it try it lol you can always try it and return it if you dislike as long as half of the product is left. But I knew the first time I tried this product I loved it." - ulta user

Bronzing Perfector Face Primer by colorescience

"The Calm Primer has a light natural tint to it. I have tried many tinted SPF's but all are too dark for me or leave me looking orange. This one is perfect for pale/fair/medium skin, adding a little color. It will work on darker skin tones but won't give any extra color. It helps even out my skin tone and from all the hyperpigmentation I have from post acne. This one I think will be great for sensitive skin.I have used this one after my chemical peels and it is calming, hydrating, and neutralizes redness. Because it evens out my skin tone perfectly, I am more comfortable going out to work and errands without any makeup on top, even when my skin is peeling.The primer has an SPF 20 and I always use a separate SPF before. The consistency is a thick whipped texture. I have found that trying to blend it in on dry skin does not work, it just pills and pulls at your skin. I either put it on about a minute after my SPF, while my skin is still slightly moist or I'll spray my face and then put it on. One pump is enough for the whole face, again, on moist skin, it blends easily and smoothly.The primer creates a smooth and long-lasting base under makeup. I let it set for at least 2 minutes before putting on any foundation. My skin looks hydrated and smooth and every foundation from liquid matte, semi-matte, and powdered goes on beautifully on top. It has not caused any congestion or breakouts and the ingredients are A+ as well. « less" - colorescience.com user

Your Skin But Better Makeup Primer+ by IT Cosmetics

"This is an amazing primer. I love how it smoothes out my skin and refined my pores. I live in the Lowcountry of South Carolina and we’ve had some pretty extreme heat/humidity these last few weeks, and this primer kept my makeup looking fresh and even kept it in place! The fact that it is oil free is also great; I have dry and oily skin so this primer really helps even out the surface so that my makeup goes on evenly. The packaging is really convenient and pretty; although simple. I like the small tip dispenser because it gives a bit more control on how much you use at a time. It also has a nice texture when you’re putting it on and isn’t sticky. I have super sensitive skin and had no reaction to this at all so I would recommend this for all skin types." - sephora user

Poreless Mattifying Primer by Tarte

"I wrote this review in the wrong place (for the 12-hr skin brightening) this is the one my review is ment for)... I have been a sephora shopper for years and this is my first ever review. I have EXTREAMLY sensitive, oily, acne prone shin. Years ago when I went to an organic/all natural life style I changed my facial care and makeup as well...I had to give up smashbox primers :( as they broke me out and of course are far from all natural. I went to mineral makeup, but my skin is so sensitive and complexion is so hard to match up (I am African American...not dark not light, just brown but VERY Golden/bronze undertones) it took for ever to find a brand that could work for me …and BE was not the one, lol. The mineral make I finally found could work for me I have been using for a while but mineral make up, especially the ones with no kind of fillers, does not last long on very oily skin...I have been in search of a matte, stay put, pore filling primer that is all natural and would not break me out for yeas…good luck, right! I have tried EVERY natural line I know to try...I almost past this stuff by as I have used Tarts other primers and they did not work... Well, my prayers have been answered I bought this with the 12-hr eye lid primer as well, and they are AMAZING products!!!!! They have made my mineral foundation and eyeshadows not just last but the colors POP! It looks like I bought new make up and I have soft satin skin! I only need to apply my natural powders for oil control 2-3x a day (I could not go half an hour with out apply oil control powder)!!! My skin feels so soft, the expression lines and pores are filled in, I’m matte without being dried out....OH, and I have not had any break outs with this stuff!!! I have never been this excited about a primer line since I wore smashbox primers years ago....I love TARTE, and these two primes with their lash primer are may new MUST HAVES!!! I just hope they work for other in my boat just as well!!! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user

Refining Makeup Primer by Shiseido

"Awesome and Amazing! I'm a 54 year old woman with very challenging complexion due to acne scars, rosacea, broken capillaries, large pores and oily T-Zone....and fine wrinkles...UGH! This primer does more than just prep your skin for foundation. It evens out my ruddy completion and diminishes the look of my rosacea. I have very large pores and pitted skin. It minimizes this and in some cases smoothes them out completely. It even helps smooth and fill smile lines near my eyes! It smoothes the surface of my skin so well! Even the slight tint of this product leaves my complexion glowing! I don't even need much foundation after this primer. And when I apply my Dual Balancing Foundation, I only need just a touch because the primer has already made my skin look 100 % improved, younger looking and HEALTHY! It keeps the foundation looking and lasting well over 8 hours.....no need for touch-ups! PLUS has a 20 SPF! I am so grateful to my Shiseido Rep, Kathryn, at Mall of America. She popped a sample in my bag, suggested I give it a try. I only use Shiseido for all aspects of my skincare regimen and only Shiseido for Make-up. This Primer is by far my most valuable product from Shiseido! I've tried skin primers from Smash Box, Lorac, Benefit and they felt strange on my skin, plus did nothing to make my foundation last through the day. Shiseido Refining Primer makes me Look Good! Best of all, it makes me Feel Good and Confident! THANK YOU, KATHRYN for allows knowing the best products for my needs! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Nordstrom user

Pore Filler by NYX Professional Makeup

"I was looking for a moisturizing primer when I went in to my local ULTA, and I was going to purchase Smashbox Primerizer, but my location was sold out. A sales associate (actually, I found out later she was a manager) recommended this to me instead. I was skeptical, because an oil primer sounded greasy and messy. But I went ahead and took it home. The first thing I loved about it was the packaging. Glass bottle, nice locking lid with retractable dropper. The second thing was the smell. The oil is lightly fragranced (slightly floral smell) which is nice, because I can't stand the smell of most oils. The third thing I liked was how it acted with my dry skin. I'm flaky all year round, but even more so in the winter. I've tried a lot of primers, but my foundation always seems to cling to my dry patches no matter what. With this oil, it smooths my skin and makes the makeup go over very smoothly. No caking, no flaking. I look airbrushed for once in my life. A small amount of oil goes a long way. This would NOT be a good primer for anyone with oily skin. The primer also required time to set down. Your skin needs to absorb it before you can apply makeup over it, or else your foundation will slide around. This primer does not make my makeup last any longer, but no primers ever seem to do that for me anyway. A good setting spray in combination with this is the best skin solution I've found. I'm very impressed this is a NYX product. I certainly saved my money. (Don't let any of the primer drip down the side of the bottle though, be careful with the dropper. Oils are very hard to clean up and will stain your clothes) « less" - ulta.com user

La Base Pro Hydra Glow Primer by Lancôme

"I have relatively dry skin which would become worse when I lived in a colder climate. However, even during hotter climates, my skin demands to be hydrated and moisturized. My mom religiously uses Lancome products and she received a couple samples of the Hydra Glow. During the summer, she tried it out herself and gave me one for keeping as well. I finally tried it one day, prior to applying any foundation and I instantly fell in love. With just a few dabs, I worked it into my skin, and immediately, my skin appeared and FELT refreshed, rejuvenated, healthy, and soft- not to mention the unmistakable glow it gave my face. It really helps to avoid looking cakey when applying make up. I use light coverage, illuminating foundations, and even still, after a few hours, the foundation would build up in and around dry patches of skin. This product greatly diminishes that from happening. I asked my mom What she thought and she said she had fallen in love with it as well. My mom has more combination skin, with oiliness in her t-zone. The glow lasts almost all day, if not for a very long time. This is an outstanding product. I've never tried a better primer for my dry skin and I must say, I've tried many. I also noticed, that my skin started feeling more perpetually refreshed as I used this product- so not only when I had it on, but when I wasn't wearing it as well. My only critique is that it is a bit pricey for the content it contains, as it is a very small amount. However, a little does go a long way with this product, and the results are absolutely worth it." - ulta user

TimeBalm Face Primer by theBalm

"My skin is dry on most days and this primer is great. My make up stays on all day. I have sensitive skin so I am little scared of certain primers. I used to use the smashbox primer which I think works great but would something make me break out, this one doesn't!i have been using this primer for about 2 weeks now and definitely my go to primer now.

Radiance Primer SPF 35 by NARS

Radiance Veil Primer by Illamasqua

"I'd longed after this product for a while but with a high price tag I was a little put off to start but when being given a voucher jumped at the chance! I read a lot of reviews saying the packaging would benefit from being a squeezy tube although I have to whole heartedly disagree, there'll be no product wastage in the way it's packaged now and when using a tube I always manage to squeeze out too much. I've got super oily skin and struggle to keep it at bay but I have to say this product is amazing it glides on to your skin like silk and really helps disguise those pores. Typically I'll wear my make up for 12+ hours and as a hairdresser can find my make up sliding throughout the day but this has kept it in place very well. You really need to use the smallest amount or it can tend to dry the skin (not a problem i've had before!) A little spreads a long way! I would recommend this product for those with oily skin but stay away if not. X « less" - www.illamasqua.com user

Prep + Prime Essential Oils Stick by MAC

"Prep + Prime Essential Oils stick has become a favorite moisturizer ! I have mature dry skin and love what this balm does for me. After applying, I lightly pat the balm into my skin, letting it sink right in for a minute or two. I even dab it onto my lids ! Foundation glides on nicely, as does my concealer stick. My eye shadows look great too ! I'll even dab abit onto the inner corners of my eyes, for added moisture after my makeup is complete. I even apply this balm as a night moisturizer. My skin really loves this stuff ! " - M·A·C user

Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer by bareMinerals

"I received this primer along with a new kit I bought (and the primer alone was worth paying the $$ for the whole kit). I used to use the original Prime Time Foundation Primer and it worked well for me, but this Brightening primer works significantly better for me. First of all, I have combination/oily skin and use the Bare Minerals Matte Foundation. When using the Matte Foundation, you don't get the same luminous glow that you do with the original foundation. But with this primer, you can achieve the glow of the original foundation, but with the matte formula. So this primer allows me to get that subtle luminosity, but without a shine that looks oily. I also like the consistency of this primer much better than the original formula (after a good shake to the bottle as many of the other reviewers have noted). It is light, airy, and leaves my skin very silky. The formula is slightly tinted, but I like that attribute because it adds slight coverage to any imperfections (like redness). The only thing I noticed so far that would worry me, is that this formula will be hard to pump out when it is almost gone. The consistency is a bit thinner, so I can see it becoming a bit of a mess as it sprays out upon pumping. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-6703630513785622477-full" data-show="-6703630513785622477-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Sephora user

Blurring Primer by Cover FX

"I've got crazy combination skin... Large pores on my nose that produce oil all day long. Yet at times, the skin on my nose can be dry and flaky AT THE SAME TIME. My forehead gets a bit oily and my chin is prone to clogged pores. My cheeks are always soft and not oily or dry- so I fight the good fight daily. I've tried SO many primers. Most do nothing to keep my makeup from sliding off my nose by mid day. I've currently got multiple primers in my makeup cabinet: Bare Minerals, Becca, Younique (Ive even tried the eye primer on my nose which is ok, but not quite "there") Dr Brandt, Milani (this is actually my second fave) elf... I think that's it currently but I've tried SO MANY more. I got the Cover FX in my Boxycharm and I'm so glad I did... My search is finally over. I'm ordering a tube from Ulta today because I've almost used mine up and I CANNOT be out. I wear this stuff daily. Esp on my no makeup days (which are rare but like on pool days this summer) because it covers and blurs my giant pores that I'm extremely self conscious about. A freaking primer hides my pores enough for ME to go sans makeup. This is huge!! Recommend 100%!!" - ulta user

High-Spreadability Fluid Primer by the ordinary

"I've been using this primer for almost 1 month and I must say, it really delivers. Everything they claim it will do is true. "Creating a smooth, natural base, High-Spreadability Fluid Primer preps the skin for makeup application. Thanks to a lightweight, serum-like formula, you can smooth it over the face for even coverage that skims over dry patches and prevents product build up around the nose and eyes." At first I was sceptical as I've tried many high end primers and none were able to smooth my skin out and make sure that my foundation wouldn't build up around my nose and make my dry patches visible. When using this primer, my foundation glides on so easily and blends even better. It gives my makeup a natural finish. I don't get that oily during the day as before. It makes my skin feel so soft. I often use this without any makeup." - beautybay user

Even Up Clinical Pigment Perfector Primer by colorescience

"I absolutely love this product! It goes on smooth, makes my face feel so good, and the combined look after using a primer and applying this next is flawless. The SPF is a must for me! I'm a cyclist and am in the sun or wind or fog for atleast 2 to 4 hours each day I ride, and the product lasts and protects against the elements. I also love how my skin looks at work, never needing a touch up for the 8 hr work day, except maybe an occasional touch of powder if I have areas that glisten. But the base coverage, which feels light and natural, remains. I highly recommend this product!" - colorescience.com user

Ultra HD Skin Booster by Make Up For Ever

"Dry skin? Normal skin? Oily skin? Doesn't matter what skin type you are this product is amazing for anyone! It's a non greasy fast absorbing serum that leaves the skin so soft, plump, and smooth! It's actually overs the skin 400% hydration which means you don't necessarily need to use it everyday. As it is a serum put this on before your moisturizer, as it will penetrate deeper into the skin. It also acts at a PRIMER for foundation. The silky finish of this product allows for a perfect application of your foundation. I have more oily skin but this does not leave my skin greasy, it does not clog my pores, and it helps give me a glowing with appearance!" - sephora user

Starter Kit by Jane Iredale

"I wanted to try the Jane Iredale line after a makeup artist used it on me as part of a bridal party for a friends wedding. The starter kit comes in the perfect travel size and was a great introduction to some key products! I really wanted to test out the tinted moisturizer ( which unfortunately doesn't come in the kit) so I asked the personal shoppers for a sample and they were kind enough to send me two samples in both medium and medium light. I'm glad that they did, because I determined that medium light suites my skin best in winter and I will save medium shades for summertime. I can't tell you how much time and money I've wasted over the years trying to find a brand of makeup that doesn't flake upon application and one that truly lasts and looks great all day on my dry, sensitive skin and I'm SO excited I've finally found my answer in this brand!! Less" - janeiredale.com user

FaceStudio Master Prime Primer - Blur + Redness Control by Maybelline

"Maybelline FaceStudio Master Prime Primer is definitely my new obsession! I am utterly in love with this product. I have tried a primer before but I didn’t care for the results I achieved with it. But this is phenomenal. I was beyond happy with how it worked for me. You can wear this alone or under your makeup. I wear it alone often. It is so light weight and airy. It visibly smoothes and evens your skin instantly and primes it perfectly. It’s hydration heaven! Hydrates and moisturizes is an understatement! It’s insanely amazing! I have super dry skin and get rough patches. So I thought for sure this would be a disaster and make things worse. Total game changer. I applied my foundation after using this and it looked unbelievable. No rough, flaky patches whatsoever and my skin looked so smooth, even and hydrated. It even feels great wearing it alone. It keeps your skin smooth and flawless all day. Very long lasting! I love that this formula is so light weight. You cant even feel it on your face. Which is great when wearing it under a foundation. It had no heaviness to it and I forget that I even apply it some days. I did not experience any sensitivity or irritation to this primer and no pore clogging! I would give this 20 stars if it would allow it! I recommend using your fingers to apply it to be honest! I tried both using my fingers and a blender and I feel like I achieved better results with rubbing it in myself. I feel like it also prolongs the wear of your makeup by hours and hours. My foundation usually wears off within a couple hours but this primer had it going strong all day long! My eyeshadow also stayed on twice as long! This is a fantastic product that 150% visibly smoothes your skin, primes it with hydration and is so super light weight you forget you even have it on! I totally recommend it!

"Just as I imagined this cream would be! When I opened the jar I noticed two different texturee & one was a ivory colored cream, the other, I could tell was a gel like consistency with gold flecks. I did as directed and mixed the two together until they were entirely blended. This gel psrt is actually an oily base substance with Gold flecks. I researched gold, in dkin care and its actually, A THING! I ran my finger, over the word gold, and copied it, so I could use the online skin care dictionary that takes you there, when you use the copy and paste technique over the word "gold" Gold, being a metal, does have positive skin care properties so, its not a gimmick. This cream is luxurious and perfect for Winter if you have dry skin, young or mature. After mixing the two layers in the jar I used the included spatula and applied the size lima bean amount, to my face, neck, decolletage and it absorbed fairly quick but not 100%. It didnt sit on top of my skin. But because it has some, oil in the cream, I could tell all night, I had a layer, of sorts, on my skin. I had the Misa Geum Sol serum already so I didnt need to purchase that too. It also has golf flecks. I used both the Misa Geum Sol serum (it might be an emulsion) and because my skin is dry, the serum or emulsuion, ansorbed quickly then I applied this oil in cream. The two, together are devine but if you want to forgo the emulsion, youd be just fine, not adding it. I took photos so show the steps, before and after, of what the oil in cream looks like. If your skin is dry, or aging, mature, this cream is for you. If you have oily skin, probably not so much. But the Misa Geum Sol Emolusion would be great for oily skin.#misshaus #kbeauty #missha #oilincream #gold #skincare #misageumsullifting Less" - misshaus.com user
