    This is my favorite primer. It makes one's makeup last noticeably longer. A little goes a long way. It also never makes me breakout.

          I use this product instead of a foundation. I apply some concealer where needed, add some blush and set with a finishing powder.

            Good primer for oily skin; doesn't work as well as some of the heavier ones but they are the ones that make me break out.

              I use product on my T zone where I tend to have oil after wearing my make up all day. With this primer, I don't have to touch up at all during the day. Worth the price, you only use a small amount.

                  I usually buy a different version of this product. I just opened it and really don't like it. I am going to try to exchange it.

                      A:

                      This product is a lighter version of the Classic Formula ideal to refresh oily, acne-prone or sensitive skin; it features a 60% water-based formula and is formulated with oil absorbers for a smooth matte finish. Both this product and the Classic Formula are oil-free and help visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores and keep makeup looking fresh.
