We have a winner!

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Moisturizes
  • Non-Greasy
  • Softens Skin
  • Soothes Skin

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Daily Use
    • Enlarged Pores
    • Fine Lines/Wrinkles

    My foundation looks flawless with this under it! Reminds me of the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer which I was about to re-purchase however saw this and decided to give it a try, I won't be going back! The product smooths fine lines and poor, foundation looks like skin over it, the added skin care benefits AND SPF is a clear winner for me. I always find SPF's make my foundation sit funny as they don't fully absorb into my skin, not with this product, it makes my foundation look like skin and gives a nice blurring effect. I always have problems with foundation pilling and I've tried this now with multiple different types of foundation and not once have I had this problem.

    Only additional comment would be that I would still recommend a serum under it if you have somewhat dry skin. I use this as a primer only and the serum ingredients of it I consider a bonus on top.

      I love this primer! I love the feel that it gives my face after putting it on! You don't need a lot of this product when applying. A little goes a long way... I'm talking like pea size.

        I love this product. My once oily skin is now dry around the eyes and drier overall. This product gives me a fabulous moisture boost, is very soothing and gives a wonderful base for make up as it smoothes over fine lines, bumps and imperfections. And it's SPF 30! (For that reason I use it on the back of my hands and occasionally my chest as well. It does have that silicon feel and texture but has not caused any break outs or problems in the oilier areas of my face. Love it!

            Silky, smooth BUT pills!

              I adore how this feels on my skin. Unfortunately, no matter what I put on my skin after (PC moisturizer, PC foundation, PC powder-alone or combinations) this pills for me. I have tried waiting to let it absorb more, but it still pills. So bummed, since when I put it on it feels silky and smooth and my skin sings with joy.

              Excellent as always.

              Vacation Holy Grail!

                • Sensitive Skin

                I bought this but was hesitant to use it daily because my foundation already has a 50 SPF, and this primer is pretty darn expensive. So I save it for special occasions, like a week long trip to Disney World, where I wanted additional protection. This primer under my foundation worked GREAT! No burns, no dark spots. And its blurring effect is great and it helped my foundation stay in place despite perspiring.

                I have other facial sunscreens that are fine for the beach or the pool, but none of those play well with foundations, and they're all zinc-based and that's not so great for someone with large pores (and shows a weird cast in photos sometimes). I also have crazy sensitive skin, and didn't want to slather on tons of foundation as my primary sun protection. So this primer was the perfect solution and the best part? Didn't break me out at all!

                My only complaint is the cost, but I'm fine with my foundation and regular non-SPF primer for every day use. This is for sure my go-to for vacations.

                Pills under other products

                I wanted to use this under foundation or tinted moisturizer, but it has a tendency to pill. I used a small, pea-sized amount as recommended, but it still happened. Very disappointing.

                        I don't understand how this product won best of beauty Allure award. It's so greasy! It feels like you are spreading Vaseline on your face. And I can't stand it. It grosses me out. After some time it sinks into your skin. But the initial impression is so bad. I will never buy it again.
