I use this Finishing Balm as a finishing balm. I cannot really use powder any more, but the tiniest dab of this balm on my T-zone or under my eyes will take away shine and perfect my skin without...

I don't understand what this product is for. It doesn't make you glowy at all, it doesn't moisturize, it doesn't work as a primer - the product balls up and is tacky on the face and causes makeup...

Received a sample foil of this in a little bag at Sephora for spending over $40, and I'm glad I got to try a sample. I have dry skin with enlarged pores on my nose and chin, as well as some fine...

I find this balm works very well as a primer under liquid makeup, but as a finishing balm. Leaves skin "glowy" without a "wet dewy" finish. It's almost a satin finish. Fills in pores nicely. A...

I got a deluxe sample of this balm with a Sephora order. I love Josie Maran's products; I already use the Argan oil and milk. For the most part I use this to "set" the argan oil at night....

Love, love, love. Josie has created a new category: moisturizer, primer then sealer and highlighter. Go girl. Application: Pat lightly little dabs on skin. It is skicky, tacky, but it settles...

Great iridescent primer! Priced relatively correctly like the other products in the line ($44CAD) and applies smoothly over the argan oil (which I love). This cream gives your skin a matte finish...
