I'm dissapointed to note that a serial pest is writing the same review over and over again by falsifying their name. Atleast do a better job at disguising your identity.

That aside I really I really like this product. I layer it over my NIOD Elan or retinol serum and have had no adverse reactions. I would not wear this during the day though because of all the …

Surprisingly I really love this product. I bought it on a whim upon Wayne Goss's recommendation..despite not liking its founder (cookie cutter brown girl Kim Kardashian wannabes just bug me).

I use as a primer...and despite not caring for the smell and colour or the fragrant oils (my pet hare in skincare) I have to admit that my foundation (and I've used it with many ) sits …

My foundation ADHD keeps me from reaching for this as often as I do.

When I do...I kick myself for not putting it on frequent rotation because it is a cinch to apply...with a perfect consistency (a liquidy cream) ...and lasting like-skin can ve rage which lasts a full work day.

The packaging is a tad on the messy side...but I'm ovelooking that. I'm a …

Perfection! !

I love the consistency (very liquid)... coverage....and mostly how it sets to a your skin but better finish that lasts all day (I use my Becca Backlight Primer for added dimension and a slight glow)... and set the Tzpne with LM Translucent Powder.

If you prefer a glowy/dripped in dewiness look ..then this isn't for you. But if you prefer a velvet matte …

Truly awful foundation which never quite sets (despite generous application of translucent powder)... and left my normal/slightly combo skin looking greasy within an hour of application. (I caught a glance of my reflection in the office elevator and almost gasped audibly).

I tried this with a number of mattifying primers ....but nothing stopped it from sliding down my face. Trust …

I llove ve this brush...the bristles are nice and soft which works well with my gentle foaming cleanser.

I'm not a fan off those overrated and expensive cleansing brushes and I'm kicking myself for purchasing the useless Foreo Luna ...instead of 6 of these.

I can see this being a repeat purchase for me.

This literally burned my skin. I love topical vitamin c products (Shout out to Drunk Elephant Firma C)..... but I gave this a try as I applaud The Ordinary 's efforts in bringing effective and budget friendly skincare to the masses.

This ticks the budget friendly box, but what's the use in that if it leaves your skin in worse shape.

This is a do-nothing product which has made no difference to the quality and f my skin.

It's nothing but a glorified moisturiser that dulls my skin when layered... and breaks up my foundation.

I'm using it as an eye cream just to finish the bottle.

Edit: 16/Dec/17. I take back all the negative things I said about this product. It is only after the bottle …

Looked ashy upon application (think Zombie Apocolypse) on my strong yellow toned NC42 skin...but within half an hour had melded beautifully with my skin to create a flawless, yet skin like finish which matched me perfectly.

I purchased this in medium dark...and relegated it to my Halloween makeup pile....only to pull it back out once I got a glimpse of how beautifully it had settled …

I am such a high end makeup snob.......but I'm so glad I took a chance on this coz it's the most perfect foundation I've ever used (sorry Illamasqua Skin Base , Mac Match Master and Nars Sheer Glow... you've been tossed aside for now).

I am a Mac NC42 with golden undertones....and Caramel Beige 108 is literally my skin colour.

I have combo bordering on …
