Not for my dry skin

I have dry, sensitive skin. This product is so drying! It left my skin so dry that my foundation that normally looks great ended up looking dry, flaky, and patchy. It leaves your skin super matte and dull. I absolutely hated it. It may work for some very oily skin types.

My Precious Perfecting Primer

This is the most amazing Primer you will ever use I have used most high end makeup Primers but have only repurchased this one again and again! This product is so versatile as you can apply this on its own to even out redness, uneven skin tone and hide pores. This brightens the skin and gives a lovely luminous glow. Now for the Amazing part! When used under foundation this primer really takes 1st prize! Foundation looks effortless and skin smooth and refined! From 8am to 8pm foundation is still fresh. It has oil absorbing powder so great for combination skin and for a semi matte finish. I only use a small amount and it smooths onto the skin.My Skin is left looking flawless and smooth Definatly a Winner for me!

Amazinng Primer

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! « less
