I was looking for a primer as the primer I was using : Shu Uemura UV mousse together with Laura mercier foundation had my pores looking so obvious and cakey! It was quite horrible. I guess previously I didn't have these issue, but I guess age had changed my skin condition.
My facial beauty therapist recommended this to me, and I tried it, although I thought nothing could help. However, I was soo surprised. After putting this on, my pores literally could not be seen and my skin looks so smooth! I need not put any foundation anymore, just this!!!! Absolutely LOVE IT! My colleagues were wondering whether I had on foundation as my skin looks so good but they could clearly see I didn't have any foundation on. :D
When applying, just a little will do, and it goes a long way! My skin glows and looks so smooth, and natural. Putting it on, it glides on smoothly and easy to put on. Not only this, I used to have my nose oily by lunch time, but now, it doesn't get oily! I don't need to touch up anymore!!! It last the whole day!
On top of this, my face doesn't break out too! I had tried BB creams, CC cream from Skin79, and Clarins, and all had me break out. This didn't at all. It makes my skin more even and also my pores seems much smaller too!
Absolutely LOVE this awesome product. Now I use it everyday - can't go out without putting this on! Just purchased the 2nd tube (even before my 1st finishes)!
I have never used a primer before and now feel that I need one. Again, sensitive skin totally inhibits my choices - enter Dermalogica (again!)
I saw a raving review for this and sent for samples. The colour looks a little dark at first, but as soon as you follow the instructions and use a tiny amount, smoothed over the entire face, the result is amazing. It leaves a very soft and silky feel to the skin, it minimises any pores and adds a lovely healthy glow to the skin. It is very sheer, contains spf and provides a perfect makeup canvass.
Again, the reviews were scarce - probably because it's quite new, so I wanted to add a quick one here. I've had no reactions to it - it looks great throughout the day and all I can add is try it!
Really nice primer that has a touch of color for the days you really don't feel like trying to hard. It really softens the look of your face.
This is by far the most amazing product I have ever bought. It is incredible. It goes over the moisturizer and before makeup. Amazingly u put it on and u don't feel u need to put on anything else. Skin is perfected, flaws disappear, and it stays perfect all day. I'm so satisfied with this product its a must in a beauty kit.
I have this in a large sample size that I have been able to use daily for over a month now (and there's still plenty left!) so I feel I can review this confidently.
I have an oily t-zone and I found this prevented my oils from breaking through sooner but didn't stop it completely, so not perfect for oil-control. However I do love that this product is tinted so it evens out my skin tone and leaves a semi-matte finish. I did notice it has slight shimmer in it but my foundation covers it completely.
With the high SPF I think its a great product to apply in the morning and not be fussing about with a separate moisturiser, primer & sunscreen. I have acne-prone skin and this did clog my pores, especially around my nose where I applied the most product. So not too impressed with that.
I really enjoyed this product but I wouldn't spend so much on a primer that is just so-so in my opinion. I will continue to use the sample up but I wouldn't recommend this for anyone who needs oil control.
I am an Asian with oily skin, living in four seasons country. I LOVE this Dermalogica primer!!
It keeps my face looking so radiant even after 6 hours. Though it doesn't mention about oil control. it keeps my face fresh with only slightly oiled. And the colour of the cream looks more to dark beige side, my face doesn't look dark after applying. It looks really natural.
The only thing which I do not like is the price and it's only 22ml. It's expensive. However, meanwhile I am unable to find a primer / CC cream / BB cream which works as good as this Dermalogica Primer so I will buy again once my tube is finished.
I am so impressed with this product. It has a slight tint which evens out skin tone, it smooths the skin's surface making it a great base for foundation, it has an spf30 and it keeps my make up firmly in place all day and this time of year my face is like an oil slick. Worth every penny.
This is the best primer I have ever used, and even though it is expensive, it's totally worth it. I have the worst skin in the world - it's sensitive, acne-prone, dry and oily at the same time.This primer makes all those things better, and that's amazing for me. Wow :)
It makes my skin look more healthy and even. Even though the primer is colored and my skin is extremely pale, it just gives me a nice glow. I love this and I will never ever change to another product!
Just tried the sample size and am totally in love and addicted to this primer.. this product has greatly help in some of my skin woes such as the mid day shine and does not cause congestion. I tried out this primer when my skin was at its more sensitive (1 week before menses) and just 1-2 zits popped out as compared to my usual few and my redness seem to disappear (Not sure if it is due to this product though). Feeling my skin looking more and more flawless, softer and smoother each day.. I usually just layer this primer on, dot some liquid foundation on the areas that need cover-up, put on some pressed power and my make-up stays true the whole day.. looking forward to purchase the full size as it is one of the best product I ever tried. Though I do agree is slightly pricey but it does takes care of the skin and contains anti-aging properties.
I've been searching for a primer for a while. Something that old keep my make up from sliding off my t-zone by 3pm & something to combat the midday shine. This does just that. I only gave it an overall 3 lippies because I'm still searching for something better. I do like that it has SPF. I'm not a fan of the $48 price tag nor the packaging. I'd prefer a pump vs a squeeze tube. I will purchase this again because I haven't found anything better.
