I purchased the value pack of the "travel size" items, and this was included. I'd put off trying it until I wouldn't be embarrassed in case my hypersensitive skin had an allergic reaction. It is very much like the Perfekt Skin Gel that I use (in Transparent)!! It FULLY CONTROLS my freakishly-oily shine, smooths out lines and pores, both moisturizes AND exfoliates, and lasts all day. It has a thick silky texture (just like Perfekt--which also has Vit.C), and it spreads like any thick gel primer. I keep waiting for the hives to come, but it hasn't happened yet. I apply this after I wash my face in the morning, it replaces a primer. Because of the nice "smoothing" effect it has on my poors/fine lines, I don't even put foundation over it--just strategic concealer. My concealer doesn't slip/move, and my skin is really soft and has GREAT texture after I was my face at night! It has been only 14 days, so I'll wait to see how it goes, and will update. This is a little easier to use that my Perfekt Skin Perfecting Gel (which I LOVE--but is SO expensive); however, This is pricey for me too! I don't know how long the product will last. Am thinking that this could replace my Perfekt Gel and foundation, completely. Only time will tell. GREAT container!
Edit: It's been 5 weeks, and I'm ecstatic!! It STILL controls my freakish-oil-production!!! ALL DAY!! My skin feels soft and smooth--but no irritation. How weird that I'm sensitive/allergic to EVERYTHING, but NOTHING bad from this--especially since other people had sensitivity to it!!
This is now my daily primer!! I still use my Perfekt gel around my eyes and lips, and this everywhere else. I'm so pleasantly surprised!!! This is a new HG!!
Update 12/ 09/10): This is HG for me! I don't even wear/need foundation anymore. because this "airbrushes" my face/pores so beautifully, and allows NO oil breakthrough. I alternate this with the Hydra-Pure Anti-Oxidant Serum...which is equally awesome!! I HATE to say it, but this product line (the C-Serum, Anti-Oxidant Serum, and the AlphaBeta Peel Pads) has TOTALLY changed my skin--from a freakishly oily mess, to normal, glowing, beautiful skin!!! Can't praise it enough!!!
