I have always had dark circles under my eyes; I use this over my moisturizer & before applying Double Wear Concealer. Works so much better than just concealer. I also use it all over whenever I wear foundation. It smooths out lines and fills in large pores. Let it dry before applying make-up then your foundation will glide on & stay. I use only the illuminating one; what would be the point of getting the matte finish? It seems to work best with Day Wear cream moisturizer. I hope they never stop making this product!!
I ordered this recently after reading the information on it. I find that it smooths on easily and seems to fill in the lines so the makeup rides on top of it, minimizing the appearance of the lines. At my age, all help is appreciated. It does not make me look 25, or even 35, but since I'm 65, I'll be happy with 55! Definitely worth using.
I purchased this product after reading the online reviews. I tried a primer from a competitor, but didn't find it as silky or smooth. I like that it has a slight bit of shimmer. I apply this before my foundation and it helps the Double Wear foundation glide on nice and easy. My skin feels softer than it ever has. I'll continue to buy this product.
Unfortunately this primer is very disappointing. At least for me the performance was very poor. I saw zero benefits as to evening out my skin and minimizing pores which this product claims to do. It didn't do any of those. I appreciate it is fragrance-free, but the smell as it is is truly horrid. It potentially will cause break outs. As skin is very individual it may work very well for others, but it definitely didn't work for me.
I love the primer. It is like putting on a coat f primer paint. It helps smooth out the imperfections in my skin. I let it dry and then apply my make up base. When I did not let it dry, it was hard to blend my make up.
I love how this primer goes onto my face. I am 60 now, so sometimes it seems every line and wrinkle shows. The Illuminating Primer helps to make my skin look more young and with a healthy natural glow. I have been told that I look much younger than my age!
I was very hesitant in trying this product. I've tried many other primers, from book order places and drug store products. I H A T E D them! I didn't want to try this because it is summer and for less is better. This product makes my 50 year skin look so much better. I love it and wear it every day!
At the age of 74 I do not expect miracles ... but this product makes a significant difference in the appearance of my skin. Used after moisturizer I do not need foundation, and it gives a wonderful glow to my complexion. I will be buying more for sure!
