As a mature woman with large pores and wrinkles (looking for the fountain of youth in cosmetics) I cannot recommend this skin primer high enough and believe me when I say I have tried them all! I have received many comments on how smooth my skin looks when I use this primer. It is best applied with a beauty sponge so you don't put it on too thick. I have spent many hours and dollars …Read more

This is an amazing product! Do buy the purple formula, NOT the TINTED! The tinted formula is horrible, and will leave you extremely greasy. I have very oily skin and I found that using a small amount of the orchid gel primer over a moisturizer helps control oil all day. Only use a tiny amount, if you go overboard with this, it will leave you greasy. I have used many primers; Smashbox, Urban …Read more

I got this in the tinted color, Medium Dark. It reminds me of a mix between a mousse tinted moisturizer and Benefit Some Kinda Gorgeous waxy primer formulation. The color matched pretty good on my NC40 skintone. As a product which has the same performance as the colorless orchid gel, It is quite shiny though so I have to tone it down, I couldnt wear this alone. It provides a good base for …Read more

I've used this product for 3 years but devised my own method that works best for me. I mix it well with my liquid foundation (just in the palm of my hand) and apply to the face. Makeup stays on all day, no shine and feels silky smooth. Sometimes I pat a small amount of the gel below the eyes and it diminishes the wrinkles!! I too would prefer if it came in a tube instead of the jar.

Totally agree with "Mimi" below. It's great without makeup, but once you put your make up on top, you can tell that your wearing make up. I'm also concerned about my pores getting clogged with it, cause it feels so thick and silicone based. Thank God i bought the tiny $10 jar to try instead of the full size one for $30, cause I'd really be kicking myself in the butt if I …Read more

I have received Orchid Gel twice in kits from The Shopping Channel (Canada) and I think this is a good product IF you wear it alone or over moisturizer. As soon as you try to put makeup over it, it is absolute garbage. Listening to Dimitri James hawk his products on TSC, you would think this stuff is a miracle in a jar but the fact of the matter is that there are much better primers out there …Read more

Received this as part of a kit from ShopNBC which carries the Skinn line. The kit contained a mineral product, this primer, a highlighter type product and a brush. This was the best part of the kit. I received this in the Medium/Dark line. It is a primer filled with silicones and has wonderful slip. It glides over pores and lines and gives a soft, matte finish. To me, it is comparable to …Read more

I had this when Skinn was named Parthena and the product was called Daisy Gel instead of Orchid Gel, & not for a second I would believe it has anything to do with orchid or daisy. I cannot live without this for about 5 months of the year, during the wintery/cold/snowy climate. Then it will go into storage for the next winter. Smooth this over your moisturizer will take away the tacky feeling …Read more

For my this is my HG primer, I agree with certain foundations it can ball up but not with mine (Maybelline Pure) My pores are VERY significantly smaller when I use this and while it does not control oil throughout the day it does make my makeup look flawless. I can apply this if I don't want to wear makeup and I feel much better than bare skin, it does hide my pores quite well and mattifies …Read more

Makes your skin look amazing and flawless- no pores, lines or imperfections. Unfortunately, the effect lasts about 45 minutes, even in the winter.
this feels very oily on the skin and if you use too much, it balls up and peels-this is pretty much all silicone. The purple tint is supposed to keep makeup from oxidizing and turning orange-I don't wear makeup, so I can't comment …
