”This primer I use daily without applying anything else to my face. It works great for sensitive and combination skin. I finally found a product that I am truly satisfied with. I even recommended it to a friend .I live in the Caribbean and this product is pretty expensive, that’s my only problem but I do THANK YOU Milani for making such a great product.”

Purged the 1st week

I'm always on a hunt for primers so whenever I empty my old one, I always look for new ones to try out. This is next on the list since it claims to minimize my pores. After 1 month of everyday usage, here's what I noticed: ✅ A little goes a long way, I only apply it on my cheeks, nose, chin and forehead and I think it can last another month. ✅ I noticed that it slightly hid my pores which is a plus, but other than that I don't see any more pros to using this. ❌ It takes a while for it to set, so if you're the on-the-go or wants quick make-up routine in the mornings, you have to wait for a while before applying your base. ❌ It's not hydrating as it claims to be. ❌ It didn't help in prolonging my make-up. ❌ Primers are naturally pricey and I'm willing to spend so my base could be perfect, but this one's just too expensive for its performance. There's a lot of air in the tube and it's hard to squeeze out the product. ❌ At first I thought I'll break out from this but my skin purged the 1st week, I got 3 pimples but after that, no more. ❗This has a cool feeling on application and smells like toothpaste or paint. So if you don't like scented products, this one's not for you. Needless to say, it's a nice try but you can go without it. Won't be repurchasing.

I have never used or tried out any primer before so it was my first time using one and I got really confused if is it really how primers are? It’s just like a moisturizer and didn’t really minimize my pores. And it’s a bit pricey for the amount of product it has because when you squeeze the bottle, the product doesn’t come out immediately but just some air at first...

Not bad but not wow either!

It’s really hard to find a good hydrating primer here because most of the drugstore formulas are for pore blurring or matte for oily skin types so when I saw that BeautyMNL sells it here I was excited to try it, although it’s always sold out. It’s a decent primer for a drugstore brand but it’s not very hydrating as it claims because the effects don’t last so long and my pores are still visible. Not sure why the scent smells minty too like I’m applying toothpaste on my face. I’m 50/50 about repurchasing this product once I’m done with it but if I can’t find any hydrating primer alternatives then I’ll stick to this one for now.

It really blurs your pores!

It works! You can see the difference right away upon application! My pores look smaller, and it does feel like a moisturiser, not like how some primers feel tacky or just sits on your skin. I also like the minty feel when I put on this primer! There's a peppermint-feeling that some might not like, but it's one of the reasons why I like it! :) I wish it was bigger though, because I feel like I already need to buy a new one and it's only been a month! Then again, maybe I just used too much at once because i like applying it on my face! :D I have dry skin so when something feels moisturising, I tend to use too much! Hehe, in any case, I didn't break-out!

So so

This primer is OK. Its not great its not bad either. It provides a smooth base for the foundation to go on however i just don't see anything special about it. The consistency is a bit confusing its like a moisturizer that has this tug that i cant explain. You have to let it set for quite a long time before you can apply your foundation. Reason why its so so for me is cause i can use just my go to moisturizer and my foundation would apply the same, regardless if it were stock or liquid foundation. Literally no difference if i use this or not. The wear time as well of my make up didn't change so.... yeah... a bit disappointing. Won't be purchasing this again...

Works as well as the NYX Angel Veil Primer

The only thing I don't like about this product is the scent of it but it goes away after you apply it to your face. This primer keeps my skin hydrated underneath all the makeup. It provides a flawless base and my foundation goes seemlessly on top of this. It doesn't make my makeup cake nor does it make it greasy.
