Product Review:

After reading the instructions, on the outside of the nice matte black box, I was excited to try this new to me primer. Applying a pea sized amount with my fingers all over my face I noticed the texture was similar to the Dr. Brandt’s Pores No More. Also to my surprise, due to the color, there was no distinct odor. This product claims that it diminishes the look of pores but for me it did not. It did however give me a porcelain like feel to my skin before applying my foundation. The distinct green color aids in masking the overall redness of the skin by countering it. I don’t know if this would be better suited to someone using a “BB cream” or a tinted moisturizer, and those who do not suffer from mild to moderate Rosacea.

There are three different colors to choose from that aid in color balancing specific to your skin tone and needs. Unfortunately it did not eliminate enough of my redness and I did not benefit using it or did it help in the longevity of my foundation considering the price. I would recommend this for the purpose of general photos, but if you do suffer from any of the above mentioned reconsider.
