The quality of this product is really great in terms of ingredients and moisturization. I like how there is a slight sheen to this product, which gives off a more glowy effect. In terms of priming for makeup, this would not be my first pick, as it it is oil heavy and would not really help makeup to stick down on the skin. I do not like the cheap plastic packaging- it could have more elegant packaging like the other Vapour Organic Beauty products. I actually prefer the Status Soft Focus Skin Perfector better than this because it blends a little nicer. I am on the fence about repurchasing.

I have only been using this product for 3 days, I purchased it as it was recommended for rosacea, which I have developed over the last year. I recently had a breakout that included red scales patches, red spots, orange peel looking skin and a few pustules. When the ocular rosacea kicked in I went to the dermatologist. He put me on a low dose doxycycline and finacea once a day. I saw immediate improvement. But I wanted a gentle makeup coverage to even out the red skin tone and dryness. I don't like to wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis but I prefer the clean skin look. So I ordered this from Amazon at a discount. I use the finacea at night with a slim coat of rose hip seed oil over it. Sometimes I add a little Cerave Moisturizing lotion. I wake up with clear hydrated skin. In the morning I wash with Cerave Hydrating cleanser which is great for the whole body, especially hands if you are dry. Then comes my new day face. One pump of Eucerin Redness Relief Daily perfecting lotion which has a 15 SPF. Once that is absorbed I take my gorgeous Vapour Stratus Instant Skin Perfector in 902, warm it up on my hand then stroke the product all over my face. I tap it in, then use a little cover girl concealer 730 neutralizer under my eyes and any remaining red zones. A little mascara and lip gloss and I'm good to go. The Vapour product lasts all day, concealing imperfections and leaves my skin soft and dewy looking. All day! It's not cheap, and I usually go cheap but I'm glad I added this step into my routine. I haven't tried it under foundation yet but perhaps I will this weekend. If you have naturally gorgeous skin you may not need this product but my troubled sensitive skin is loving the natural ingredients and soft moisture barrier. My skin looks luminous and clear and feels wonderful. No itchy dryness! Combining this product with the recommendations from my Derm dr saved my skin in one week! I will def be purchasing again. I might add I've never had succes with bb creams or primers so I'm thrilled this one fits the bill. Moisturizing, nourishing and no noticible pores.

Doesn't offer a great deal of coverage unless you use more, but it makes my skin feel and look wonderful. I love it, and the luminous foundation. Yay, Vapour!

I have been using this primer now for about 3 months and unfortunately I am not very impressed.

The formula is tacky and difficult to spread across the face. I haven’t noticed any skin improvement and I can’t say I notice any major difference in how the skin looks when wearing it. Maybe it has a bit more glow and maybe the makeup stays on a bit longer, but not so much that I would re-buy it when I run out. The ingredients list looks good and it’s certainly not bad for your skin, but I don’t find it worth its (high) price.

I love this stuff. This is a great product. I is a great primer no matter what foundation I wear that day. I also love that Vapour is natural and organic. Can't get much better than that.

This is an organic mineral based primer with several skin softening and healing ingredients in it. I'm not sure whether to call this a primer or the amazing do it all skincare stick. Here's what the company says about the Stratus stick

Here's what I say... Where the hell have you been all my life???!!! I even used this as "stage makeup" for my boyfriend. I didn't have to put any foundation on him i just put stratus right on his skin and it smoothed all his imperfections under the stage lights with no problems. As an added bonus it made his skin suddenly turn to silk. I adore this stuff! Even after i remove it my skin is soft like a newborn baby's skin and my uneven areas seem more even. This is also one of the vapour products that feels like nothing on. The more your skin warms it, the softer your face feels. I'm now so addicted to this stuff i put it on under my makeup and at night on it's own. I also used it on my nieces dry cheeks. It's kid friendly and it worked. By the end of the day her chapped cheeks were soft and smooth again. If you try nothing else from this line, try this. I've had no acne or oil production problems with this, and it appears to be water resistant and an amazing product for skin tone and texture. It is supposed to add a little glow to the skin which it does but it's so natural it really does just look like healthy naturally luminous skin. I'm not sure if it does anything as far as acting as a primer other than make your skin soft so your makeup sits nicer but the skincare benefits make it worth the money. I can't say i'd use this to prime someone's face who has a lot of lines or acne and expect it to help the makeup glide over those imperfections, i'd still go with Makeup forever high def primer for that. Because this one sinks into the skin to improve the actual skin rather than just the "temporary appearance" it doesn't act like a normal primer but i'd rather improve my skin than have to cover it.
