Love, love, love this product! I'm in my 40's and my sensitive break-out prone skin has changed from oily to combination. I've tried numerous primers, but they're either too drying, cause a rash, terrible smell, or don't last through the day. This product is absolutely amazing! I wash with Soft Clean cleanser in the morning and then apply the illuminating primer. It dries immediately! It's like a lotion/primer all in one. I then apply my Double Wear foundation. My make-up truly lasts 16+ hours with just a minor powder puff mid-day. The primer truly improved my complexion. My skin looks and feels 10 years younger. Very soft skin without the oily look/feel.
Best For: any one who wants a smooth long lasting foundation
I've been using this primer for 3 years and it makes a huge difference in smoothness ease of application,makes Foundation longer wearing I can go all day with no touch ups. Also you don't have to use as much foundation. It's a wonderful product can't go without this!!!!
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!!
Best For: women who are starting to get fine lines
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!
