i'm more used to a primer leaving my skin silky smooth, but this product doesn't

together, they work amazingly well to make my face smooth as silk throughout the day

- Birchbox User

pore minimizing

pore minimizing

this primer seems like all my pores less visible when when i have my foundation on underneath this primer this primer makes a great base to put your foundation on top

- Birchbox User

i also have large pores and this works a treat

- Birchbox User

mattifying

mattifying

this primer does not have any mattifying qualities, and i still needed to use powder and face blotters to mask the shine

- Birchbox User

i used a mattifying moisturizer following this, as i was like oh my gosh i'm metallic looking, and actually really liked the results

- Birchbox User

finish

natural

applying this primer over my moisturizer and under my foundation solved that problem 100%, while also making my skin look healthier and more radiant and my foundation more blended and natural

- Birchbox User

i used this with a light coverage foundation and got a very matte very flawless but natural look that i loved

Love, love, love and LOVE!!

About my skin - I have extremely dry skin in the winter and oily skin in the summer. I clean my face as usual, apply my own moisturizer and then the product. Since it is winter it is a must that I add moisturizer first (for me), this product goes on smooth and brightens my skin. I often just apply this product w/o make-up. It doesn't take much so I got multiple uses out of it (I am actually still using it and it was Jan's sample). It keeps my skin from absorbing my make-up and I find that the make-up last longer and continues to look great throughout the day or evening! With that being said, I'm not sure how it will work come summer as my face is super oily. I imagine I will use only the product without my moisturizer. Overall- GREAT product!

LOVE this!!!!

This was my sample choice for my box and I was so excited to see it there! I've used this primer before and I LOVE it, so I'm thrilled to have the sample size for my purse. This primer is AWESOME for the following reasons: 1 - it has a subtle luminizing effect, so when you apply this primer before your foundation and then put a light foundation on top (like any powder foundation or BB cream), it's like your highlighting is already done. It makes your skin look the perfect amount of subtle glowy...it really is just so pretty. 2 - the texture of this primer is lightweight yet creamy and moisturizing, great for my dry skin!! 3- it has an SPF in it which is great because even when I use mineral makeup with SPF as well, I like knowing I've layered SPF products which hopefully really protects my skin. When I'm going to be out in the sun a lot just running errands or something, I go ahead and smooth this primer on the back of my hands as well for sun protection. It doesn't smell like sunscreen or feel greasy, which is so nice! 4- Even though it doesn't have as thick and silicone-like texture as many primers do, I still feel like this primer helps minimize my larger pores and any texture issues on my face. It doesn't completely eliminate my pores, but it does minimize their appearance. Most makeup primers have a much thicker silicone texture, they usually have that in common. The texture of this is different, it's more like a very light lotion. But it still functions very well as a primer, and makes my foundation look more flawless! I'm definitely a fan and when I run out, I'll definitely re-purchase! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-1374366137697604219-full" data-show="-1374366137697604219-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

Best primer ever

Before using this product, I was of the opinion that primers were kind of useless; just something you are supposed to use over moisturizer and under makeup and another way for beauty companies to make money by adding yet another "essential" step in the routine. I've tried dozens of them and they were unimpressive. However, this one is special. I don't like using a lot of moisturizer during the day because my combination skin can get oily, but using this primer with a drop of facial oil provides the perfect amount of hydration. The primer is shimmery, but not overpoweringly so, so what happens is your skin looks like it is glowing slightly. I love how this product makes my skin look even toned and seems to minimize my large pores. I am extremely impressed!

Natural looking healthy glow

I love this primer. I have extremely dry skin which tends to give my face a dull complexion no matter how good my moisturizer is. (I use very expensive face creams too.) This primer does a fantastic job of adding that healthy glow back to my skin tone. Previously I have used an illuminating primer from Lancome, but I think this provides much better effect, and it's cheaper. I put this over my bb cream (which has a color correction in it). Sometimes I will wear a foundation powder over it, sometimes I just leave it as is. I would not recommend this for oily skin types because it will add extra shine.

If you want a dewy look

I know in K-beauty, a dewy look is popular but a "radiant primer" sounds like a contradiction. The point of primers is usually to smooth out your skin and give it a matte base for your foundation. However, this primer makes you "glow" if you want to be nice or "shiny" if you want to be real. It's like I put highlighter all over my face and I just do not need to make my face shine this much. It didn't really help my foundation last longer. While I was applying my foundation, my forehead and temple area started flaking so this product dried out my skin. Not for me.
