—Product—
This primer has no smell. It feels very soft and silky, but is very silicone heavy which is cool if you like silicone type primers like I do. Since this is a silicone-y primer I don’t recommend it for oily skin as it does nothing to combat oil (even though it claims to). However I do recommend this to people with dry skin, because it does smooth over dry patches. It’s not a miracle worker, but it does help. This also claims to fill in pores and fine lines. I see very minimal reduction in the size of my pores if any, and I can’t speak on the reduction of fine lines.

—Packaging—
This primer is in a very sleek white bottle made of frosted plastic. While it looks very pleasing to the eye it is kind of deceiving. The frosted plastic covers an inner, plain white tube that is a little smaller than the outer casing. So you think you are getting more product than you actually get, which is .43oz (13.7g). But really the deceiving packaging is not that bad because a little of this primer goes a long way. Speaking of a little product… the pump on this bottle/tube is actually really good. It is really easy to control how much primer you want to pump out. But while the pump is awesome the clear cap covering it is not. It doesn’t like to stay on and I’ve had a cap crack on me making it fit even more lose than before. So if you want to store this in a makeup bag I would suggest a couple of pieces of tape to keep it on so that the cap doesn’t fall off and pump primer all over the rest of your makeup.

—Overall—
I like this product, I don’t love it, but it’s a good primer. It smooth’s skin and prevents dry patches from being seen. I recommend this to anyone looking for a good, cheap, silicone based primer.
Pros– Smooth’s skin, affordable, attractive packaging.
Cons– Packaging is deceiving, not travel friendly, cap doesn’t stay on.
