This product is good if you aren't going to wear anything other than powder over top. If you use a TM or foundation, it makes your make up look very thick and cakey. Kind of like you plastered your face. Terrible. I returned mine. This has been my first experience with Clarins. So far, not so good.

Excellent product. It makes pores and lines vanish . . . well at least temporarily. It provides a smooth base for foundation and can even be used on your neck and chest to create a smooth even look. I only buy this once in a while, but miss it as soon as I am out.I would highly recommend. It might be a little much for oily skin, which I do have, but I love the effect so much I just tolerate it and blot through out the day.

I love this primer! It really makes my pores look smaller, and is sooo smooth going on. It helps my foundation apply at LOT smoother too. I notice a pretty significant difference when I use it. My foundation stays in place a lot longer, too. I can go waitress an 8 hour shift and come home, and not worry if my foundation looks good!I would definitely buy again. It's a bit pricey but a little goes a long way!

I haven’t had any luck with Smashbox Photofinish, so I assumed this would be the same. Thank God I was wrong. I can’t really compare this to any other product as it is only a second primer I have used. I can say though that it doesn’t burn my face like Photofinish did, and it doesn’t make it red. It agrees with my sensitive and dry skin, and it creates a nice base for my mineral makeup. I would prefer if it didn’t come in a jar, but that on itself will not distract me from buying this again. Nice silky smooth texture and you only need a little bit. This pot should last a long time, even with everyday use.

i think this is similar to clinique pore minimizer instant perfector (texture and all), except instant perfector also works as a shine control, this one doesn't. it is, however, still a very good silicone-based primer and does exactly what it's supposed to do, which is to create a smooth canvas before applying a foundation.

I really like this product. I have never really been picky with primers, I use three others apart from this one and they all work really well for me. This one does indeed smooth the face instantly making foundation application a breeze and my face pretty darn flawless. I am not a huge fan of the packaging as I don't like creamy or liquidy things to be in pots. I still gave it 5 lippies cos the quality of the product easily gets me over my packaging pickyness. I said i'd repurchase this because of how well it does work but I do also like mac's prime & protect and smashbox photo finish that I might not need to get this one in the future.

I love this product - makes my skin smooth/great primer before foundation. Doesn't break me out at all; doesn't feel oily at all :)

I like this stuff, but not every day because of the 'cones. It does a great job filling in my enlarged pores and my fine lines, and it even mattifies my t zone. I use it when I want a little something extra to my look without caking on lots of makeup.However, the silicones are kindy slimy on hot or humid days so this isn't an everyday item for me. Still I am glad to have it in my stash and it does what I want it to do.I wish it came in a tube, say with a large opening like 8 hour cream. I always have to resist the urge to scrape off a layer of this from the pot every time I use it.

I think this does a pretty good job filling in fine lines and enlarge pores. It didn't fill in deep wrinkles (I tried it on a scar!). I also felt! It was too oily for were I wanted to use it-my t-zone. I gave it to my grandmother, and she said it felt like she had on a funeral parlor face, lol. She is definately not oily!
