I can’t say enough about this product; goes on sooooo smoothly and gives me flawless coverage. And has suncreen - added bonus!!
This was a huge win for me! I loved this from the beginning. It makes for such a great and easy to blend with base for your foundation. I highly recommend this as it definitely made my makeup last longer! I feel like it would be good for all skin types!
The only primer I’ve found that doesn’t break me out and leaves me looking poreless! No fragrance, oily residue or anything. My only wish is that it would last longer. My foundation seems to break down after 8-10 hours when wearing this primer. Still works wonders though!
This is my current go to primer as I've slowly started using makeup again. It is easy to use. I prefer it on a dry face, post cleansing and Hydrating. Seems to soften the look of imperfections and cause powders to lock into place.
So worth the money!! This was actually my go to on my wedding day which was a country side 113 degree day and it was gorgeous,had staying power,and look great in photos even hours later!!

Love this product makes my face feel super soft. This allows me to apply foundation and my eyeshadows smoothly. I’m still getting to know the product as I just got it as a free gift with another bare minerals product I ordered.
Q & A
It is worth the price? I have the elf primer and would like to upgrade. Thanks!
Does this primer actually work? I have only had one primer actually work on my skin.
I've been using a lotion as a primer with my bare minerals powder but just found that they have this primer. Does it actually work? And does it make your face oily?
I usually only use primer during the drier winter months. Do you use this product under your makeup all the time?
I just started using this product and am worried about breakouts- has anyone experienced bad breakouts using this?
