Most Helpful Positive Review Bye Bye Primer, Hello Instant Blur!
I am lucky to have been a part of developing this new product and I can't wait for others to try it! I have used a liquid/gel primer for nearly 10 years and I have to say this beats them ALL! Why? Because it helps diminish all of the things I want to conceal...redness, uneven skin tone and pores on my nose. My skin is super smooth and it is the perfect canvas for my foundation afterward or if I am going completely bare, I feel like I have a nice finish. It's weightless, so perfect for all skin types and transparent, so perfect for all skin tones. I hope you will love too!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Sticky
I thought this product had potential and gave it a try. It was sticky and didn't blur or hide anything. If you touched your face it felt tacky; a friend gave me a hug and kiss and exclaimed " your face is sticking to me!" Lol. I tried it a couple of more times and it didn't get any better. Back it went. Disappointed. I'm sure there's a primer out there somewhere that does what it claims, I'll keep looking.

Got it on boxycharm store. It was just ok. It really doesn't do much and is not worth the sale price and I got it for like $13...
Katie from PA
I have breakouts every now and then as well as some redness to my cheeks and visible pores. This won't completely cover up blemishes however this does an amazing job on my cheeks where my pores are so I really do love this product! I gave it a 4 star rating because you don't get a lot in the case and I feel I'm going to go through this very quickly which could be costly. I would never pay $55 as it retails but on Ulta it was 50% off so I snagged a few!! It feels great on my face and makes it so soft. I don't wear foundation and am going for that no makeup look without any makeup so this is perfect! It's really all I need. I've never used Perricone MD products before so I'll have to try the others.

I'm 38 years old and my skin concerns are an oily T-zone, sunspots on my forehead, under eye shadows, redness, laugh lines, and the worst is my skin texture and pores.
As I'm approaching my 40's, I switched up my primer and foundations from fuller coverage to lighter, with more hydration rich products. But I've spent so much money and time being disappointed with greasy, unflattering foundations that kinda did one thing but not everything I wanted.
My other goal, was to actually move away from makeup and move to more natural looking, skin benefiting products that would improve my skin, versus just masking imperfections. But obviously I still wanna hide the flaws. 😉
I bought this during the Summer sale and was just mind blown!
It's a lightweight, clear translucent balm, that's easy and fast to apply right over my moisturizer (less than a minute to apply!)
Immediately, it mattifies the skin without looking chalky, hides pores, corrected my discoloration, brightened my shadows, absorbs fast and leaves skin feeling hydrated and dewy, and just looks flawless!
I first tried it on, on a 90 degree, humid New York day, walked 3 miles, and even sweating and blotting my face, it looked lovely and didn't feel like a silicone veil the way foundation does.
I received so many compliments from friends who told me I looked "Refreshed and youthful" too.
After a week of use, I noticed an overall improvement to my pores and skin texture. Also the packaging is super cute! The sponge applicator is tucked away in a flip compartment, separate from the balm, which is more hygienic.
I also have to emphasize that this cut my makeup routine time down to a fraction of time with much more satisfying results. And that in itself is just priceless!
I literally ordered another one and am tossing my foundations in the trash!
I ❤️ this product!
New HG primer!!
Summer from MO
I bought this at a pretty steep discount thru BoxyCharm without expectations. I've been on a good primer hunt for months, trying to find something blurring/filling that works with the foundations I use, doesn't accentuate dry spots, & helps makeup last longer. I finally got it all with this product!! My foundations don't pill up, it blurs as promised without clinging to dry spots, & instead of crazy patchy looking makeup at the end of the day it's like the makeup just gradually wears away. I will happily pay full retail price for this product, it's worth every penny to me!
Fun side note, I went to the PMD website to check the ingredients of this & couldn't help but notice most of the reviews here are from the PMD website. Weird.
I would buy this a 3rd time.

This is second time I have ordered. It smooths out your lines and you look much younger

Instant Blur helps soften the look of my upper lip lines. I put it on over my foundation. Also, it can be used thicker on those ugly neck crevice lines—i never want to run out! P.S—terrific on large pores too
The product is great but expensive
Nikki from Ohio
After I apply my moisturizers and sunscreen I blot the product around my nose and forehead, blot my chin and upper lip area and I'm ready to apply makeup! It isn't perfect but helps with smoothing out those areas! I like the product but it's rather expensive and there isn't much product in the compact.
This is magic
Tish from Eau claire, wi
I have combination oily and dry skin, I have used hourglass as well as other high end and low end "primers" and none compare to this. I love the packaging although getting fuzz in the product is an annoyance it's not a deal breaker. Often I'll use this just to give a filter finish when i can't wear makeup. I keep one in my purse at all times.
Great for my sensitive skin!
Miss M from Ventura, CA
Love to use the product - its a great primer! Use it on the sensitive spots on my face that my other primer can't tolerate. If I had to describe it- its not as thick as spf creams. I can't stand the weight of those because they're too greasy. So I would say that the product creates a nice smooth layer to apply makeup.
Product does what it claims!
Perricone Devotee from Seattle, WA
Minimizes pores, fine lines, evens skin tones. Looks totally natural. Makeup applied over Instant Blur goes on much smoother and more evenly.
My Favorite Primer
Cynthiua from Jacksonville, FL
Instant Blur is my favorite primer. No face shine throughout the day nor at the end of the day. My skin looks smooth and supple. I will definitely purchase it again.
Free in Florida from FL
I have been very happy with all of the Perricone products I have purchased with the exception of Instant Blur. I have wrinkles and large pores and it just made them more visible and showed right through the No Makeup foundation. I tried it several times, then just tossed it in the trash. Bad investment. It probably works great for someone young who has great skin - but not this old lady!
Was skeptical...but WOW! Definitely works...
CA Jan in FL from Sarasota, FL
Yes, I was skeptical. I mean, how often does a company claim their product does magic and when used, we feel cheated...too often, right?
Not so with the No Makeup Instant Blur. It does what it is intended to do and does it superbly. Pores and fine lines are minimized. And if they are not craters and valleys, they disappear completely. I happen to have a little of both so gauge your expectations realistically.
A small, round applicator is provided, but I use my fingers and lightly apply pressure to the craters and valleys (larger pores and not-so-fine-lines). The rest of the face, I gently massage it in but not with too much pressure.
My method is: After moisturizing and letting that sit for about one-half hour, I apply Instant Blur over my entire face. Again, I don't do the next step immediately allowing the Blur time to set. Sometimes I use foundation, sometimes I don't. Blur gives the look of a (somewhat) flawless appearance so this is the only product I have ever used that doesn't make me feel naked without foundation.
I then dab and gently pat on undereye concealer, add a minuscule amount of "it BYE BYE pores" setting powder over the concealer. Then apply blush and a little cheekbone highlighter. Of course, I always have my lashes and mascara too. The result is an au naturel look with a sunkissed glow. Perfect for daytime and casual outings.
I decided to look into a different cosmetic routine when a dear friend lovingly said I look younger without makeup. She was right and so my quest began. It's overwhelming with so many choices available and their claims of "amazing results." And while different products work differently for different skin types and each person's desired look, I can say that Blur is a result-oriented product for me and the look I sought is achieved by using it correctly and combining it with the Bye Bye pore powder which also must be used sparingly over the concealer to garner the desired results.
Maybe it's just what you want too!

Helps smooth out complexion, foundation is easier to apply.
Kali from Colorado
This is definitely a unique primer that is different from all of the bottle and spray primers out there. You are provided a application sponge for applying the primer. I have noticed that if the primer was sitting in my warm car or somewhere just with a more humid or warm condition the primer does come out of the compact a lot easier but you can go through the primer faster because of that. So it's best to keep this in a cool dark place. Because when you apply it you want to use as minimal as possible and use a dabbing technique to press into the pores as opposed to rubbing or gliding onto the face. I would say use this as a spot treatment for concern areas as opposed to covering the whole face as a overall primer. It is expensive however it is instant blur absolutely. 100% this is the best blurring primer I have ever used but you do have to be careful when using it not go through it too fast. And bonus tip if you don't use foundation but just want to fill in your large pores dab the primer onto your large poor areas and then top off with a setting powder to seal in the product and it will last throughout the day
I like this one!!
Kira from Mystic, CT
I use a scooper that came with a previous product to apply instant blur. I found the soft applicator soaks too much of the product in. I have spent a fortune on skin care to keep my skin healthy and the instant blur makes my skin look relaxed and very smooth. I just think this is very pricey and will go fast if product is used everyday so minus 1 star because of that.
Smells like BO
Eyeskater from Los Angeles, CA
This reeks of BO. I couldn't keep it on my face long enough to see if it had any effect because it smelled so awful I had to wash it right off. Shame, it went straight into the trash.
I love it and def buying again.
LadyT from Katy, Texas
I absolutely love this product! My skin is flawless when I wear it under my make up . I'm obsessed with this product now.
Nora from Texas
I use it mostly when I don't wear makeup. This product actually hides all my pores and makes my skin look really smooth. I have gotten a lot of compliments on my skin.
Great as a primer under makeup
Sleeping Liv from NY
Forget the applicator. Scrape out a small amount and warm up the product by rubbing your fingers together, press into your skin and then apply your makeup.
this does NOT blur
D C from Pennsylvania
Not sure what it is supposed to be doing since it appears to do nothing. Pores, lines and discolorations all still very visible and this did not provide a smooth base for makeup. Glad I got it on sale. I'll keep using DHC Skincare Pore Minimizer. Now that BLURS!
Beachgirl from FL
It really made my skin look good over the foundation serum or alone. Beautiful product
Yes!!! I would but again!
Tamara from Mount pleasant Iowa
I don't care for the smell of this, personally I think it kind of gives off the stench of BO, But I don't like to wear concealer foundation or anything to work on Somedays just some mascara and lipgloss. After I do my skin care I put the sign and then some translucent powder and I definitely noticed a difference it's not meant to completely cover things up it's not a clear fix all concealer. It's meant to blur. I've read some reviews of people that I think expected more. But for what it says it supposed to do it does that. I will definitely be buying this again.
Love this product
LovePoodles from Florida
This product will reduce the look of your pores when applied with the accompanying sponge. It feels good on the skin.
Mommo from PA
This is the first and only primer I have tried that doesn't cause breakouts! Wish it wasn't so pricey, but worth it.
