I have extremely dry sensitive skin. This product is a life saver. It is the most moisturizing, smoothing, amazing thing I have ever put on my face. It feels a tiny bit thick, maybe slightly sticky at first. Do not let that scare you away. A small amount of this product is all I need. It is easily absorbed into the skin, moisturizing and smoothing as it goes. My skin feels better than it has in years. It immediately takes care of dry patchy areas of skin. I use it all the time: at night, before I put on makeup, even after I put on makeup. If I have a dry problem area, and apply a small amount of this product, it does not rub away my foundation or concealer at all. I am very gentle when applying it on top of makeup, definitely do not rub it too hard into your skin or it may affect your makeup. If you have dry skin, I cannot recommend this product enough - GET IT. Cannot vouch for how it will affect oily or combination skin types.
I don't think it does much to make your makeup last longer, so I would classify this more as a moisturizing serum than a primer. I use another primer afterwards to ensure long lasting makeup. This is completely clear when absorbed into the skin, no shine or pigment from the gold flakes. The bottle is small enough to be taken on the go, which is great for any bits of dry skin that may pop up throughout my day.
Some reviews say that it feels sticky, I agree there is a small amount of stickiness right out of the bottle (to be expected as one of the main ingredients is honey), however it is liquidy enough to be easily used and spread across the face, and fully absorbs into the skin within seconds leaving no sticky residue or film type feeling on the skin. My skin feels clean and smooth and healthy after applying. This is my new go to product and I am absolutely in love. Worth every penny, and I will be buying this for a long time to come.
PS - I also love NYX because they are cruelty free!
