I am lov'n it. My face stays all day even in humidity. I might add I am late 50's which means it is a whole new ball game compared to those in 20's. I have my share of lines and wrinkles and this does not hang up in the wrinkles and make your make up look worse like some. I can tell if for some reason I forget to put t on. Used it over a month now and I am so glad I found it! I have not found it to dry or make my skin oily with the heat. I am also pron to break outs and I have had 1 pimple sinceUpdate: Had to stop using, skin became so clogged it would cause huge deep cysts.

This primer is pretty good overall. It makes my foundation go on smoother. My face doesn't get as oily as it would normally. I've tried primers from MAC, Sephora, Laura Mercier and I have to say this drugstore one was the best of them all! I got it at CVS for $17 and it's been great so far. I haven't used it long enough to see if it really is an anti-aging product but as far as foundation application...it's good! I will defintely buy this again.

I think I would buy this again....I always wish there was a 'maybe' category in some of my reviews. Anyway, I've been using this for about 2 weeks now. This product boasts that it will:Instantly:- Perfect Complexion- Smooth Fine Lines- Minimize Pores- Provide Smooth, Evenly Toned Skin- Brighten SkinWell, as any good primer should, it definitely smooths your skin and minimizes pores. I don't have huge pores, but using this does provide a good canvas for foundation. And I don't use their mineral foundation....I use a liquid foundation. I don't think it matters what you use. When you apply this, it literally makes your skin feel like silk and it sinks in immediately...there is absolutely no waiting time. Please note that if your skin is allergic or prone to acne using products with silicone in them, you will want to avoid this! There is definitely silicone's in this and I'll list the ingredients at the end of this review. This is NOT an oil reducing primer, nor does it say it is anywhere on the package, so do not buy this if you're looking for something to soak up oil. I blot my face around lunchtime but have no more oil than usual, so it's not like it causes more oil. The ONLY reason I gave this 4 lippies is because I got a big pimple on my forehead last week. Now, I don't break out often and very, very rarely get those "under the skin" pimples like this one was. I suspect this product may have clogged a pore, but it could also be coincidence. As far as its 'Anti-Aging' properties go....bah! I never believe that hype. It does give my skin good texture, but you won't turn back the clock using this. Very few topical products do. I would give this a try if you want to....I got this for about $16.50 at CVS. And most stores these days will take back products if you hate them, so you're really not out the money if you can't stand it. I think I will buy again, but this will last quite awhile, so we'll see.Ingredients:Cyclopentasiloxane, Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone, Silica, Dimethicone CrossPolymer, Dimethiconol, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone CrossPolymer, Glycine Soja (soybean) extract, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Gamma Aminobutyric Acid, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol. May contain (+/-) Mica, Iron Oxides, Titanium DioxideHa! The only words I recognized in there were "soybean and Vitamin E". :)EDIT: I had to stop using this after giving it a good month of use. My face would get about a zit a day. I'm 48 years old...I don't want to revisit that part of my youth. Anyway, maybe this will work for some people, but I'm deducting a lippie because it didn't work for me and it's rather pricey for drugstore stuff.

I am a new user but I have been wearing this under my mineral makeup (which I use during the week at work so I am not wasting my precious Diorskin Icone) and it hold the mineral foundation on beautifully and has a great texture...I use smashbox primer w my fancy foundations and I think this works just as well in terms of keeping your skin matte and the foundation fresh. I guess I will give it a try with my liquid foundations, although I have a feeling this is best with minerals...I will update after using for another week or so and let you know if I feel it is making me breakout...

I never thought I'd say this, but I like this more that I liked Bare Escentuals Prime Time. One of the things I like most about it, is that it's "anti-aging", which I definately need. Not to mention, that I've loved all of the 24.7 Skincare products, including the 24.7 Mineral makeup. I truly believe that they take away at least 5 years. This primer seems to be less greasy that Prime Time, definately allows for a smooth application of mineral makeup, and keeps my makeup from turning colors or textures by the end of the day. And the price of this is $4 less for the exact same amount of product, so this is a keeper!
