        I put it on after the lotion. It prevents make -up from caking in my pores. It is so smooth and skily. Then my make-up goes on even and pretty. I LOVE IT.

          I have been using this product for some time and love how it reduces the pores on my nose and near my nose. It goes on better after having used a scrub on the areas you wish to use it on.

            I use this product everyday. When I don't have breakouts, I don't even use a foundation! It makes my skin soft, it blurs lines and pores, and smells great. It's a bit pricey for a primer, but totally worth it :)
