      Great coverage for a primer, and I love the level of SPF. Only complaint is that my skin feels oily after use. However, after using this product I use less foundation since the coverage is so good from the primer.

          I love this product. I like to wear it on light makeup days because the coverage is good and it evens out the skin tone. It has more of a matte finish which i like because my skin tends to be more oily and BB creams sometimes have a shiny finish. A little goes a long way so the tube is somewhat small but it lasts a while. It makes the skin look very smooth. I always like to try new cosmetic items but once in a while i come across one that i love so much that it becomes a regular. This is one.

            I've been using this product for a few months and I love it. I have sensitive skin and the natural ingredients don't irritate my skin. The clay based formula absorbs oil which actually helps prevent breakouts I was getting on my forehead. It is very easy to apply with a brush and looks very natural and it doesn't feel heavy on my face.

                    This product is literally amazing. This is the first review I have ever writing in my life. I just think it deserves credit. I have been battling acne and scaring for two years now and this is the ONLY product that has made my skin look amazing. I keep purchasing full color coverage foundations (MAC, Clinque, Urban Decay) and I keep going back to this! One bottle has lasted me over TWO years!! I'm so excited to buy more. It doesn't break me out and it really does laste all day. Best product ever!!

                      Most products I see with an SPF need to be reapplied every 2 hours. Since this is a 12 hour product is the SPF good for 12 hours too, or does it need to be reapplied?
