              i don't get the hype of this product. might be fine for oily skin but it looked scaly and gross when i applied it to my skin. i have dry skin but i always moisturize and/or use a face oil before applying my makeup. returned.

                    I was introduced to this product years ago. It's amazing. Then I tried other brands...with disasterous results (clumping/ light coverage/streaking). THIS product is the way to go. It IS worth it even if a bit pricey.

                            Hi gorgeous! Our POREfessional face primer is an oil-free lightweight balm. It contains a Vitamin E derivative, known to protect skin from free radicals. I cannot say how you will react to this product, so the best thing would be for you to go in-store to test the product. xoxo B
