”I’ve used other brands for primer, and for every single primer I’ve purchased, they have made me break out constantly. This primer is a whole other ball game. It keeps my skin looking matte, without breakouts! I have sensitive skin + very dry skin. I will not stop using this product. It works amazing, and for the price, you really can’t go wrong. Highly suggest trying this product out!”

”This primer is sooo affordable and works amazing for it’s price point. Makeup really does adhere to it. Plus it has a slight blurring effect on my skin. I had to dock a star off though because this is the only primer I have tried that has ever pilled up on me. Even after trying to leave it longer before applying foundation and trying different ways to apply it. But for the price and quality, it’s something I can deal with.”
