best product i have ever found to keep shiny skin looking smooth and velvety

pore minimizing

pore minimizing

it covers everything beautifully, evening out my skin tone and it prevents my pores from clogging so that my skin is actually clearing: blackheads disappearing, pores shrinking

- Dhc User

it smooths the skin and minimizes pores and bumps

- Dhc User

staying power


i love the way it stays on all day and makes my face velvety smooth to the touch and also visibly

- Dhc User

after my shower i put it on my face and just a little went a long way, my make-up went right on top of the velvet skin and stayed put all day, no caking in the creases like it did with my old mosturiser

- Dhc User



this product is so light weight, coverage is easy with a very small amount

- Dhc User

i love the way this products looks and feels, tried another expensive primer and it was like glue and caked on my face while applying this goes on and stays on and gives a wonderful smooth even tone to my otherwise shiny skin

- Dhc User



my skin feels so smooth and soft and i feel it offers protection against the very cold and dry air where i live in the high desert

- Dhc User

it helps discourage shine without drying my skin

liquid gold

I've been using the velvet skin coat primer for about two years now and I am very happy with it. I have very dry skin, with redness. I've never had what you might call good skin. Bad texture with redness. This product prepares the skin to be as good as it can be for your makeup application. My skin never looked so smooth, small-pored and evened out until I discovered this wonderful product (pores -- what pores?). I have tried a couple of other primers -- but always come back to this one. Doesn't make me breakout either. I love this product so much that the four samples that are offered to you when you order -- I always chose more skin coat! I just squeeze them all out into another cleansed small jar and use them up first before I start in on my new skin coat full product. LOVE IT. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

best one out there

I have seriously tried just about every primer out there from the makeup counters to the store shelves and spent a lot of $$$ to do so. I wish I had found velvet skin coat sooner!! I have combination skin and large pores. This product not only makes my makeup go on smoothly and evenly but it totally vanishes the large pores on my nose and leaves the skin there matte and soft all night. My only miniscule compaint is that on my forehead which is the hardest area for me to control oil, it only lasts 3-4 hours but a simple reapplication of velvet skin coat or powder or even just blotting touches it up just fine. I love being able to perfect my skin without a single drop of color. I don't need foundation with velvet skin coat, just that and brightening concealer and I'm good to go. I have demonstrated this product to friends and as I applied it they all said it looked like my skin was being airbrushed in real time. A lot of primers and mattifiers out there can achieve that to a degree, but none as well or as long-lasting as velvet skin coat. I should also note that I have extremely acne-prone and sensitive skin and this does not make me break out. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

Use it everyday.

I have large pores, sesitive, oily skin but, with velvet skin coat it looks like I have normal, smooth, non-shiny skin and the look lasts all day. I use it under a light colored toner for a natural look. It helps cover freckles, age spots and redness. It does not irritate or cause breakouts. Best product I have ever found to keep shiny skin looking smooth and velvety. I use it everyday with or without makeup. Never leave home without it.

pores got clogged

I have combination dry skin so my face is dry on the cheeks and just a bit shiny on the t-zone. This worked but it gave me blackheads, whiteheads and pimples. As soon as i put it on my skin felt like it couldn't breathe. Alas after a few uses i get breakouts on my nose. Not for me. Still have yet to find a makeup base that works and wont clog my pores.

One of my new favorite products

I've been using DHC products for a few years but didn't see why everyone loved the Velvet Skin Coat so much. I have combination skin and tried samples of the Skin Coat I received with my orders. It just felt too heavy underneath my make up. Well, now I have more "mature" skin and I recently noticed (to my horror) that my under eye concealer was caking up during the day because the skin under my eyes has become dry over the past couple of years. The skin under my eyes was cakey and flaky and looking like the skin was peeling. The reason this horrified me is because I work with the public every day and regularly give lectures. I found that using the Velvet Skin Coat underneath my eyes keeps the dryness at bay and I don't get that flaky look anymore. I apply the Skin Coat first and let that set for a couple of minutes and then apply my under eye concealer. I look great all day and now I can't imagine not using it! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>
