This primer is amazing, it has the perfect cross between silicone feel and an oily feel - if that makes sense? It feels amazing on the skin, quickly absorbs and doesn’t sit on the skin like I find a lot of primers do.
I find that my makeup stays a lot longer with this underneath, especially in the places that I had a problem with (my rosy cheeks, nose, etc) and it makes my foundation last a lot longer, even without using a setting spray over top!
On that note I alway believed that primers are supposed to keep the chemicals from makeup off of your skin. Sence using Bare Minerals, my acne has decreased severely!
I don't think I'd necessarily buy it again because I've found other primers that work better for me and I don't like the consistency of this one. Other than that It's not terrible
