If you’re after a primer that gives you a great canvas to work with then this is it. I use several primers as I find they all seem to sit differently on the skin. This is probably my favourite more affordable brand. I paid about $12 for this at Kmart and have not been disappointed. It’s comes in a lovely frosted heavy plastic pump that dispenses just the right amount of product. It glides on easily and preps the skin nicely. There is a Pore Filling one available but this tends to blur a little anyway. The only reason I’m not giving this 5 stars is because it doesn’t really extend the wear of my foundation by that much but I will definitely keep purchasing this product as for $12 it is great value for money.

I bought this as my first primer purchase, because I'm not entirely sure what the product was meant to do, and also not convinced I needed it.
It goes on lovely and smooth and your skin feels quite silky with it on. Makeup went on quite well over top too. Didn't feel any different than without primer, but assumed it would help the makeup hold a little longer. I can't say I noticed my skin looking any better, or lines looking less noticeable. It was just okay.
For the money spent it was hard to be disappointed but it didn't sell me on the whole primer idea.
I paid $8.99 for this product, my first whirl at primer. I could spare the $9for that and wasn’t expecting to be wowed. Admittedly my first use I used far too much and it was quite greasy and I wasn’t thrilled, next time I got a much smaller amount and applied, the more you work it in the better the finish I feel, my foundation looked great. I use a revlon liquid and the base this helps create is great.
Tips: Preserve and don’t use a lot
I was expecting great things from this primer but it really let me down. I have quite dry skin, and very crepey under my eyes, so I was hoping this primer would allow my concealer (I don't wear foundation) to glide on smoothly and help fill some of the lines so I'd get better coverage out of my concealer. Unfortunately it did none of those things. The silicone base was very off-putting too - it FELT smoothing, but didn't LOOK smoothing (if that makes any sense?). In any case, I moved onto another primer after only using it for a few days. I gave this one to my teenage daughter (combination skin, prone to break-outs) and she loves it! At least one of us is happy :-)
This just glides on after I moisturise and then I find it helps my foundation to go on my face more evenly. I got it online and I think it’s a must have for under $10! It does what it says it can do as it really does help to achieve a more flawless appearance in combination with your moisturiser and foundation.
Tips: You don’t need to use a lot of it - a little goes a long way.
I had been wanting to try this primer for years, I finally got around to ordering one from Iherb.com for $8.24 New Zealand dollars and was very impressed with the results.
It comes in a plastic bottle with an air pump dispenser. At first glance I mistook the plastic bottle for a glass one, very chic and sleek packaging. There is 14 grams which is approximately half the amount of an average primer, but for the price it is still a great find.
After moisturizing my face, I like to use 2 pumps of primer to cover my face and neck. The formula is a clear thick gel form, it has a slight silicone scent, and glides on to the skin in a matter of seconds. It leaves a velvet smooth finish, settles into my fine lines and acts like a filler, the small pores are unnoticeable, which is fantastic for the next step which is applying my foundation. This primer works well with liquid and powder foundation, it makes a great base that lasts 8-10 hours depending on the weather and what I am doing.
I am shocked with the results, for the cheap price and how well it performs, I will be repurchasing this when I do my next Iherb order.
When I first brought this i was a little bit skeptical due to the price. I found it made my skin feel instantly smooth when appplied. Helped my makeup glide on smoother. I felt it helped me by providing a smooth base for my foundation.
I really like this primer considering the price I paid for it (about $5 off iHerb). I love the silicone/gel feeling and it went on my skin really smoothly. Make sure you don't use too much though as it can leave you a bit oily.
I found it left a good base for my foundation and lasted all day.
I can't really comment in comparison to high-end primers as I haven't used many, but this is a great cheap primer.
Tips: Don't use too much
This is the first primer I ever bought and I liked the silicone feel of this product. It made my foundation go on super smoothly. The only downside to this product is there is not much primer in the bottle
