        I use this product every day. I normally buy the regular one because it works just fine and then I apply my preferred foundation but this product makes my face look just the same. In fact, my face is smoother now than when I used to apply my preferred foundation

                  great product! I was hesitant in the purchase due to the cost. But I did try it and it is worth the cost. Most primers don't work on me. They make my foundation come off or foundation slides off. So, Kudos to you.

                      • Q:

                        My skin is red on my cheeks, chin and under my chin. Will this reduce the redness? Also, makeup never stays on my skin. Will this help this as well?
