For me, the only thing appealing is the packaging. I bought it because the soft focus primer is discontinued. So, here is the deal. It is super "silicony", distribution has to be super even so...

It's a pretty average silicone-y primer. Has that velvet feel and makes foundation go on smoothly. Cruelty-free. Not irritating. I do think it (and others like it) clings to dry skin, so it's...

This is the best primer that I have used so far. It worked better than pore professional at blurring pores. Recommended.
