I heard about this being a good primer and bought it, as a primer I actually prefer my Biore UV Perfect Face Milk better, but as a serum-ish product this is wonderful...sadly this has been discontinued in my country.
This has a gel like silicone texture, easily absorbed and leaves the skin smooth and soft. It broke me out in the first week of wearing, I usually break out in the first week of using new skin care, and then the breakouts stopped after my skin adjusted to the new skin care...same goes with this. I have not noticed any pore shrinking, but my skin has become so soft after 3 weeks of using this. I noticed that my skin started getting rough when I stopped using this. Texture of the skin has also improved tremendously.
I feel that this is very lightweight and doesn't make me oily, I feel that this might not be enough for dry skin girls. This is also lightly fragranced. This comes in a tube that is a vacuum pumped, and you can't see the product inside.
I would continue buying this, if it weren't discontinued. Highly recommended for anyone wanting baby soft skin. And for all skin type except dry skin.
This stuff is fabulous, it does exactly what it's name says....minimizes pores and re-smooths the skin.
It dispenses creamy and goes on my skin very easily, not heavy, clumpy or hard to deal with.
Makes my complexion look soft and shine free all day. I am really disappointed that it is not easily found on the drug store shelves.
Unfortunately I think it is discontinued. I am trying to find as much as I can and scoop it up!
If anyone knows where I can find it, please post! Thx.
Bought this on sale. Had a horrible breakout of bumps. Don't know if it was from this or not, but the product other wise didn't seem great anyway so I'm not sad to lose it. I also found out I have a reaction to niacinamide, don't know if this has it in there. But beware!
Overall it's a good moisturiser if you're looking for something more affordable, although I found it quite irritating and I found that throughout the day my skin got dry easily so I reapplied a few times in one day. Perhaps my skin was dehydrated? I did find it to make my pores visibly smaller, which is always a plus! It's alright packaging, a bit futuristic (looks a little like a test tube). Would recommend as a good drugstore/supermarket moisturiser, but if you can save up your pennies there are better moisturisers out there!
I decided to try this product as I saw it on sale for $10AUD, I believe it retails for approx $25.
Unfortunately I have large pores and I've been looking for a miracle product to help minimise the look of them. Skin Genesis was not the product :(
I can't see any difference at all to my pores after using it.
The only redeeming factor is that it makes a good primer, it feels quite light and my makeup goes on well.
Overall, the product doesn't deliver on its promise so I would not repurchase.
This is the one beauty product I use that can't be replaced. It has made a tremendous difference in my skin! Please don't stop making it. Sometimes I can't find it in stores and worry that it's not on the market any longer.
Just a terrific, affordable product. Thank you, L'Oreal!
Overwhelmingly perfumed -- slight greasy feel -- didn't do ANYTHING to reduce appearance of pores -- caused breakouts -- lousy packaging, impractical and deceptive. (Seconding the recommendation to break the top off; quite a bit of what little product you get will be wasted otherwise.)
This didn't even work for me as a primer; it certainly didn't do anything useful to my skin. Not particularly sure how I got to the end of the bottle. The smell is really...I would not buy another L'Oreal skin product again based on the scent alone. Very disappointed with all aspects of this.
I love this stuff! It makes my skin brighter, smoother, and pore free. I am amazed at how soft my skin feels after using this. I use it morning and night underneath my L'oreal skin genesis day and night creams. I have been impressed with the skin genesis line, people can't believe I am turning 40. I will definitely repurchase.
Very good tempo solution for my pores. Pore size is genetic so this is only for temporary. For my oily face, this is much better than Estee Lauder's Idealist, which costs $46.50 vs. $20 for the same 1oz size. I use mostly as primer under mmu and works great! Also more effective in controlling oil and keeping mu longer compared to L'Oreal's Studio Secret primer (0.5oz for $12.99). I used coupon from Sunday's paper and waited for sales :)
A HG worth primer for me..this stuff is like the estee lauder idealist cream to me. goes on smoothly..I wear under bb cream and foundation. I didnt want to take my makeup off at night!
