      Good primer

      By Jenni

      Comments about COVER FX Calming Primer:

      Goes on smooth almost like a moisturizer, Makeup stays on all day. I don't feel the skin "calming" ingredients in it so for my skin, it's just a basic primer that does a good job, nothing special.

        Comments about COVER FX Calming Primer:

        I was really excited to try this product, as I suffer from rosacea and my face is always red. I also have very sensitive dry skin. I was disappointed to find that this primer caused an uncomfortable tingling sensation, followed by itchiness. I was especially disappointed because this is the most expensive primer I've ever purchased, and it is marketed towards people with sensitive red skin. After the itchiness faded, I found it didn't really reduce my redness or affect the longevity of my makeup. I do have severe redness on my cheeks from rosacea, not just a tiny bit, so maybe it's too much for it to handle. I tried using it multiple times in different ways but nothing seems to work. I'm sure it's a great product, but unfortunately it just doesn't agree with my skin.

          This stuff is magic, there's no other way to describe it. It feels so refreshing and light and it really helps the foundation go on better and stay on all day. The redness on my face is visibly reduced before I even apply foundation.

            I have extremely sensitive skin and this primer is the best for it! Keeps my make up on all day but also helps with my sensitivity, texture, blurs, and feels like a moisturizer. It's perfect for me.

              I'll say it. I hate primers. Well, my skin does. Wants no part of them. Any ive tried, my skin felt hot all day, itched or broke out. This one my skin enjoys. It feels like lotion!! doesn't feel like primer!! craziness. so I can prime with the best of them, my makeup stay on my face, and I'm not punished for it. Thank you Cover FX

                  I bought this because in-store sales person for the actual product was there pushing it, when she applied it, I felt there was a cooling sensation, but aside from that not much else. It smells really bad. It doesn't mattify. It doesn't seem to do much at all besides cool the face and diminish slight redness.

                    Can I wear my skin care moisturize cream under this primer? Or do I cleanse and then simply apply this calming primer alone, then foundation ColorFx?

                      Hello Connie,
                      Great question! You always want to use your skin care first and then your makeup/beauty products. You can most definitely use your moisturizer with our Calming Primer.
                      Hope this helps!
