    I was really disappointed with this one. I love all things mineral and love primers too (primordial cell defense and primer--discontinued by Lancome--has been my all time favorite), but this just feels like mineral oil with some powder in it. Waste of money.

            Overall, this is a good primer. The only problem I always seem to have is the pump always breaks. I just unscrew the cap and put it on that way. I switch with another primer every couple of days.

                I like this primer because it's safe to use, it goes on easily and smoothly and makes the rest of my make-up look great. I don't even feel it!

                        This is great under lightweight foundation. It helps cover inconsistent skin color and fills in the "laugh lines", skin-smoothing. I love it.

                          I was really disappointed with this one. I love all things mineral and love primers too (primordial cell defense and primer--discontinued by Lancome--has been my all time favorite), but this just feels like mineral oil with some powder in it. Waste of money.
