          Great primer with non chemical sunscreen. It's super lightweight and makes my skin feels super smooth. As advertised, it gives a hint of coverage- so I'm not sure why people are complaining about poor coverage. If you're looking for a bb cream that can double as light coverage foundation, it's not this one- try Bare Complexion Rescue instead.

            Maybe my skin is just to much for this product but it didn't do anything it said it would. I have a lot of red marks and acne scars and this did nothing to help cover it.

                  • Q:

                    Would you recommend this product for oily skin? I wear the matte foundation and have tried the primer and primer for oily skin several times with no luck and the makeup didn't seem to stay on all day with using it. I am really just trying to find something to help with oily skin that will allow my makeup to stay on throughout the day without having my face look like a greasy mess.

                  • Q:

                    I am curious what consistency this product is supposed to be? The samples in the store are very liquidly. The product I bought is extremely think so much so that the pump does not work. I can't tell if I have bought old product that was returned to the store and put back on the shelf or it the samples have something added to them to make them so fluid. The difference between the two is extreme.

                    I wear Matte foundation in fairly light. Will this primer change the color of my makeup or does it smooth out imperfections? I do not like the original primer as it doesn't seem to stay on very long. I tried a little on my forearm and the fair seems to blend in better than the light color.

If that isn't feasible, then we would recommend going with the Fair shade as you can blend it with your Matte foundation.
