Appears to be silicone based so if your skin is sensitive to those products then you will get acne. Potentially the worst kind of acne which is cystic bumps deep under the skin that take forever to go away. I think it's not intended for use on the face and the point was to use it on arms/legs/feet. The skin on those tends to never break out. The best thing I see this as is an anti shine product because of the "powder gel" but not a primer for those with oily skin. Most people have more oily skin in the Summer, but if it doesn't work for your face you can always just use it for the intended purpose for anti chafing.

This didn't work at all for me. It was easy to smooth on, but that was about it. I didn't notice any difference when I layered on my foundation. It didn't break me out, though.

After reading great reviews about this being an alternative to expensive primers I wanted to get it a try.I've been using this product everyday for 2 weeks now. I have no break outs, and no irritation. I am very happy with the product as a primer. I love it better then Lorac (which makes me break out), Smashbox (doesn't last) and Sephora's (doesn't last) primer. This last longer, my make-up looks better. (I use Laura Mercier liquid foundation or Laura Mercier oil-free tinted lotion, and Benefit blush in Coral). Wish I had known about this before wasting my money on the other brands. ** highly recommend **

It does make my skin feel much smoother, but for some reason it makes my sunscreen "ball" up. It doesn't seem to make my foundation stay on any longer either.

I got this to use as a primer after seeing reviews. It does make your skin feel smooth and look a bit smoother but I did not see much help in making makeup last longer. It also broke me out so it sits on the shelf now. Maybe if I start exercising I can use it for its original use:)

PROS- makeup goes on smoother/looks better- little goes a long way- prevents eye shadow from creasingCONS- will not fill in pores- no oil controlCOMMENTS: Now, this isn't marketed as a primer...so I can't really dock off points for it not being able to fill or blur pores/control oil. This will help foundation apply and look much better, though. If your concealer has a tendency to look cakey under the eye, this will resolve that issue. You don't need much product, either. A little goes a very long way. I also noticed that when applied on the eyelids, it keeps my eye shadow from creasing. Not a bad product at all.Will repurchase.

I really enjoyed how this stuff felt on my skin. It made my skin feel like satin! It really kept my makeup looking decent too. I tried this out on a day where I went to work and then to the beach afterwards. I had worn my makeup for about 16 hours. It looked okay still but I did notice some cystic bumps that weren't there before. I got about 3 of these and small zits on my chin. This had to be the culprit because I never break out with so many zits and cystic acne at once. So with that said, I can't use this. Not recommended for the acne prone.

As soon as I read the reviews on here I could not wait to try this product as a primer. I currently use ELF Mineral infused Its okay I don't really know if it makes a diff. When I put this on it felt the same as most primers I have tried, However at night while washing my face it was coming off in little balls which was weird. I had to keep washing until nothing else peeled off. Since I am in the middle of a breakout - and trying everything ( I see the derm next week) I can' say it caused any harm that way, I have no idea what is doing this. Anyhoodles my son loves it after a particulary rashy bathing suit day, so I will use it.

This stuff is amazing! Does the exact same job of any of the higher end primers or even drugstore primers for much less! You get SO much more product with this as well. Most primers don't give you more than 1.0 oz yet you get 1.5oz with this. Not to mention the fact that unlike some primers that have a pump (e.g. Smashbox) this comes in a tube so you can really squeeze out every last drop! Sometimes I even cut it open and get a couple more days of usage from this as well!I use this EVERYDAY and have been using it for about 4 years now and it has never broken me out, never irritated my skin, never clogged my pores...nothing! And this is coming from someone who has very oily skin and used to be plagued by acne. There are very few things in my makeup case that I would tell someone I really cannot live without but this is definitely one of them. It keeps my makeup in place and keeps a barrier between my face and makeup so that my oils don't come through as much.Anyone who wants to venture into face primers but doesn't want to shell out all the money for an expensive primer should head over to Wal-Mart and pick this up--it's only $6 at Wal-Mart!

I have skin that is oily and have large pores. I'm so oily that my face shines like a christmas decoration! For year I've always wanted to wear foundation especially on special occasions, but every single brand is always defeated by my oil slick. But not anymore! I tried this product and oh my gosh, my make up is actually staying put! Those unused foundations that are lurking in my drawer can finally all come out. This gel keeps my make up where it should be, and wonderfully filled in my pores. Best of all, no more scandalous oil slicks!Before buying those expensive name brand primers, please give this a try! This might be your HG primer waiting for you :)
