I don't love this product but I don't hate it. It is a bit runny but I find it conceals the redness around my mouth and nose area just fine. I have sensitive acne prone skin and so far my skin hasn't reacted negatively to this. My skin tends to be quite oily in my tzone so I use this product sparingly. I avoid my chin area as that is where I tend to break out the most.
After I use it I pat the L'oreal clear primer over top of it (this came in a combo with this primer) and use my concealer. I find if I lightly pat this primer on with my fingertips and barely rub it in, it conceals the redness really well. Once I start to push it into my skin and really rub then it doesn't conceal the redness.
This product has helped reduce the amount of concealer I use and the amount of time trying to conceal redness. The only thing I don't like is that it leaves random glitter on your face. L'oreal could have done without putting a glitter in this.

This product semed ok at first, but the longer i used it, the more i began to hate it. It has a strange shimmer to it, and it is almost like a water texture. That is ok because I have oily skin, but i feel like it just absorbs right into my skin and becomes invisible. It hides SOME MINOR redness, but its not great. I wouldnt repurchase. I will stick to my Dermalogica Anti-redness moisturizer instead.

The primer has almost a clay-like texture; this helped the primer stay more of an opaque green which did help to counteract redness. However I really didn't like how it made my powder foundation look cakey. I've never had this problem with other primers (including Smashbox Photofinish, Cover Fx Skin Prep) It looked like I was wearing a mask.. eww.

I have sensitive skin thats prone to being red and flushed. I always need to use primer before I put make up on in order for it to stay. This is by far the worst one I've ever used. It doesnt blend well and leaves behind stray green smudges on your face. It also has a bizzarre glitter tintt to it. I would not recomend this to anyone.

I'm surprised at the negative comments, but considering we all deal with different skin types, I should not be. I have a pretty severe case of Rosacea and sensitive skin that has resisted multiple prescription products. I have also tried many, many green color corrective products from cheap to expensive that never work with my skin issue, so I was extremely pleased when I picked this up on a whim. I use a brush to apply it to trouble areas and it blends well despite my rough, red skin. It does well under my MAC Studio Sculpt and I always receive compliments about my "pretty" skin. It feels light never "pills" like some products do on me. The inexpensive price makes it even better.

I had finished almost one bottle..back then I didn't have any thing similar to compare.... It did hide little redness but it also leave a sheen film on the face (it has very tiny silver sparkle in it but not very visible) which make pore visible and make the follow-up foundation sit in the pore. Absolutely not recommend for someone with large pores. If you need something to reduce redness I would recommend kryolan "ultra base" in Mint (green). It has matte finish and did a good job prior to foundation. It even make foundation glides on smooth.

I would not buy this product again. It does take care of a little bit of redness, however, I was left with a green tinge to the areas I applied it. Additionally, it made my skin feel oily after a short period of time. As a "primer", I feel that it made my makeup come off faster! Do not waste your money on this one!

I really like this corrector. I am quite red around my nose and I have a few broken caps. I also have a red birthmark between my eyebrows which sometimes is very red and sometimes almost unnoticable. if I wear foundation and concealer on its own the red always shines through, especially when I don`t want to wear many layers in order to look natural. with this that never happens. I would never use it all over but I don`t think it is its purpose either. the texture is a bit watery but if I dot a bit on my red parts and let it sit there for a while it is much easier to blend. I use becca concealer and either mac face and body foundation or EL double wear for nighttime. those products work great for my dry, acneprone skin together. I will repurchase but this lasts for a long time since you only need a tiny bit.

This is pretty rubbish. It leaves a green tinge on the skin rather than covering any redness and somehow makes me look like i have a green hairy moustache which i can assure you, i dont. It doesnt work well as a primer as it is quite runny and doesnt keep makeup in place as it should. I wouldnt buy this again.

Do not waste your money. This product does absolutely nothing to hide the red on my face. I don't have much -- but this seriously does not make a single bit of difference. It will leave a green tinge on your face, but that's about it.
And it's not even a decent primer. Thin and runny and doesn't help makeup go on any better.

Terrible! It didn't help to cover any of my redness or help to conceal it any way. I have to agree with the following points made in another review:
1) it's runny and hard to control, 2) it's too light and doesn't blend into the skin, 3) when you cover it with foundation, you've effectively made yourself look grey. Yep!

I found that this product really took care of slight redness due to acne and the reddish flush that I get as a teenager. This really helped even out my skin tone and I found this worked perfectly with a pressed powder. This most definitely would not work for those with rosacea, unfortunately, because it's just not potent enough. This product, I also found, lightened my skin tone, so be careful with this! Be sure to use a mild bronzer with this product. This product didn't make my foundation or tinted moisturizer last as well as other primers did. Finally, I didn't expect such a watery consistency with this product, but this product OOZES out! So be cautious when you first use this product, I do not recommend a full pump when you first use this!

I love this stuff! i bought some of this after i ran out of Smashbox and i can honestly say this works wayyyy better and its cheaper :)

Garbage. It's so runny that if you press the pump down even the tiniest bit, way too much will come out. On its own, it didn't correct redness near my nostrils or on red spots on my face. Combined with my regular concealer, it made me look like I had strange ashen gray patches on my face. Better to use your concealer alone than use this. Way too expensive for how ineffective the product is, too.

I bought it hoping that this next product would work. I have a rosacea in face but it is mainly on the cheeks. When I applied the corrector with in two (2) to three (3) min I could see the coverage! Wow it worked and my face also feels silky smooth! For once in my life I felt good about my skin!

alright, let me start off by saying acne is not a problem for me, as others that have commented. My 38-yr-old skin is, however, uneven in skin-tone with some patchy redness and sundamage especially on my cheeks and nose. For my issues, this product completely works. I dab it on, then even it out using a cosmetic sponge, then apply foundation. My skin hasn't looked this even in a long time. I love this stuff!

I was excited to pick up this primer, I have tons of redness all over my face and have been searching for a good green concealer for awhile. Then I came across this primer, liked the concept, and gave it a whirl. It does conceal your redness quite well, it doesn't really do much for active breakouts though. The pump is awesome although it can get quite messy. It doesn't leave any hint of green on your face. The only reason I wouldn't buy this again is because when I apply my normal foundation, there is not THAT much of a difference with or without this primer. As far as it's priming abilities, the foundation stays on the same amount of time with or without it. I will continue to use it on lighter days when I use a tinted moisturizer, but will not repurchase because, quite frankly, it's not worth the $11. I am still on the lookout for the perfect green concealer/primer.

The main reason why I wear face makeup is because I have a lot of redness in my cheeks, and I like to cover it up. This product teamed with Clinique's Redness Mineral Powder makes my skin look almost flawless, enough so that I feel confident going out with just these two products on and no foundation or tinted moisturiser. As it is green tinted you do need to makeup sure that it is blended in properly, but other than that, no issues found.

I have really red skin-and with having acne-my skin can be incredibly red. I wanted a green corrector to help out. I bought this on special offer at Superdrug.
I found the best way to apply this product is with a foundation brush, I use it all over. I only need two pumps, the solution is quite runny. And I find that if you do not leave it for a few minutes and you got to put your foundation on the primer will bobble up. I find I cannot wear this product on its own. But it does counteract the red in my skin under my foundation.

I had high hopes for this product as I have a lot of post-acne redness to conceal. Alas, my hopes were not fulfilled. This product is runny, doesn't blend well, and leaves my face with a weird whitish-greenish cast. No matter how muchI blended it, I still couldn't get it to look anything even approaching natural.
