Amazing glow

I absolutely love this primer. I have always struggled to find one I like that sits well under my foundation. They’re either too drying or my foundation always starts to separate when they mix together. But I have had no problems with this product! It gives such a lovely glow but without looking too shiny though the day and when I’m not wearing makeup I put it on to give my face a bit of brightness which looks amazing. Love this product

Really lovely primer

This is a great primer that makes my makeup look great and gives a really nice dewy, illuminated look. I also occasionally pop this on when I'm heading out but not wearing a full face of makeup for a little extra glow. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for the perfect primer for dry skin.

Gave me a rash and couldn't tell I was wearing this

Beware sensitive skin people! Unfortunately this product gave me a rash - I have eczema but haven't had a flare-up in years until applying this product to my face. It made my eye lids dry and scaly. I also could not tell a difference in "glow" when wearing this. It felt nice on but that was it. I returned it.
