Love this product! Very, very different from other primers I've used (Smashbox Photofinish, Paula Dorf for Normal/Dry Skin) -- much less siliconey, and more hydrating. Feels good on the skin and leaves a nice finish. You only need to use the tiniest bit. It feels a bit tacky when applied; you have to let it dry a couple minutes before applying makeup.

Comes in a slim pump bottle that dispenses a nice, tiny amount. I use one or maybe two pumps for entire face. The bottle is opaque, though, so you can't see how much product is left in it :(

It's also terrific as a mixer for Kevyn Aucoin's Sensual Skin Enhancer, which is way too pigmented to be used on its own. Together, these 2 products make up my HG foundation.

My main complaint (and it's a biggie) -- the price is outrageous: $42 USD for a tiny .33 oz tube.

Also wish it didn't contain polyacrylamide :(
