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.

This is a tinted silicon based primer that also contains a broad spectrum protection physical sunblock, some antioxidants and sodium hyaluronate. The addition of lavender oil makes it smell absolutely fantastic while providing antiseptic and healing properties (lavender oil, contrary to recent popular belief, is not an irritant, especially with addition of antioxidants).
I believe it is a product that you can totally adapt to your needs. If your skin is near flawless and just needs a little something, you can use it alone, over or without a moisturizer (adding a moisturizer doesn't change its properties). The tint this has is quite sheer and won't be enough to replace a foundation but it still manages to slightly even out skin tone. I don't find it too dark and my skin is quite fair. If you choose to use foundation over it it will work wonders for it! I use it over Dermalogica's Intensive Moisture Balance and SkinMedica's Vitamin C+E (another silicone based product) and under Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua. It kept my foundation in place for at least 10 hours and my face oil free (and I really mean oil free) for until I took everything off in the evening. It also made my foundation look more evened out. This primer didn't break me out or dry out my skin neither it emphasized dry patches, I'd even say that despite neutralizing oiliness it provided extra hydration.
Unfortunately, what this mostly failed to do is reduce the appearance of pores and, as this was my biggest expectation, I don't think I will repurchase. I still believe this is a fantastic product being both make up and skincare, and might be a true HG for just about anyone with less pore problem than me.
