"I bout this about a year ago and it brilliant keeps my makeup on all day without me having to touch it up!"

"This is the best setting spray ever, you can pay £6 and it does exactly the same as the urban decay setting spray, its amazing. I apply it every Saturday morning before work and it doesn"t come off at all, its that good. I have oily skin so throughout the day my face gets oily and wrecks my makeup, however with this my makeup stays perfect, I love it! 10/10 one of my favourite products!"

"Great value for money helps makeup smooth onto face and reduces the look of imperfections great base don"t know why anyone would use anything else "

"Okay primer... stays matte for a few hours but you get what you pay for. Don"t really like the texture of the primer, but the packaging is nice and the primer smells nice."

"I use this product daily alongside my Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, they"re a perfect match together. Very moisturising, which is great as I have very dry skin. A little goes a long way, so it"s definitely worth the £24. It"s the only primer that has ever worked for me!"

"I love this product because it promises that your make-up will stay on all day with it. The application is nice but as its SPF 50 it does go all sticky and hard to absorb."

It always works perfectly without my make up coming off in all weather and in my work as I work in heat everything stays perfectly in place. I think everyone needs this product as it also smells lovely and goes on like a light mist "

"this really sets my makeup and keeps it on all long, no matter how hot i get. i would recommend this to anyone."

"I absolutely love this primer although it feels like it dries my skin so I feel like I have to apply a moisturiser beforehand. You only really need a pea size for your whole face so it takes a while to use up the whole bottle so that makes it worth it"s money. After I"ve applied it my skin is smooth and disguises all my pores/lines. Basically ticks all the boxes "

"I did like this product, however if i used one of my foundations it would made my skin look greasy. But apart from that this product made my face feel very soft"

"This is a really amazing product. I never use foundation as I am from an era where these were not very natural looking. I have dry, mature skin with fine lines. This primer is like velvet. It feels comforting and people at work asked me what I had done to my skin! I can`t recommend it enough; I don`t lavish praise lightly but try it because it makes a huge difference to the appearance of your skin"

"Ive used this for 3 weeks and I am pleased with the results. My pores appear smaller after my foundation is applied and it gives a really smooth base. I also used it under my eyes and my foundation and concealer sit better in fine lines too. Ive an oily T zone & dry face and it works well with both. Been using a sample for 3 weeks and a little goes a long way, £38 for 30ml will be worth it!"

"This is my daily primer and it works perfectly! My makeup stays on all day without wearing off and This is perfect as I have very sensitive skin and can be quite oily. I don"t need to use a lot either which is perfect for me! It also moisturises my skin leaving it smooth. "

"I have very, very sensitive skin and not many products agree with me. This is my HG primer, it keeps my foundation in place much longer than normal and doesnt give me spots - brilliant"

"Excellent primer. Gives my skin a real velvety feeling, and prepares it perfectly for my foundation. Dont use too much product though or can leave a residue. The price is an added bonus! "

"It made skin feel papery. Didn't help foundation to go on smoothly. Had to cleanse it all off and start again without it. It was really horrible."

"This is a beautiful highlighter - I"ve got the rose shade, which isn"t really all that pink (it"s quite natural actually). After foundation I apply some to my palms and press over my cheekbones and cheeks and it makes me look very fresh and awake. It"s not glittery or overly shimmery - so perfect for daytime! Try some - you won"t be disappointed!"

"I have combination skin and I feel this primer doesn"t necessarily work on me! Although it"s a great highlighter if you dab it on the desired areas as it says on the back of the packaging. I wouldn"t buy again simply for I feel it doesn"t prime great and it costs around £10 which I find is quite a bit and I"d rather get the mini benefit poreless."

"I feel this is too thin to be a primer, but is a great illuminator for under makeup, makes your skin have an amazing natural glow. "

"I love this product it makes my skin feel so soft. It helps to reduce my pores and keeps my make up on all day. You don"t need to use a lot so it lasts for ages ."

"Wow! Have been looking around for a while for something to reduce the look of the pores either side of my nose. This is perfect. Yes, it is expensive at £23 but so so worth it. It even helps disguise the stubborn number eleven lines between my eyebrows. Lovely texture and lasts all day."

"This is a lovely primer, I use it daily together with the infallible foundation and they work really nicely together. It blends very nicely and feels lovely and smooth on the skin. It definitely helps my foundation to stay longer on my combination skin."

"This foundation does really work but I wouldn"t say it"s anything special. I don"t really like the slippy texture of the silicone- even though i do usually favour these primers. Also I feel as though it could do better to "blur" and fill in my pores but it is great value and does the trick to keep my face matte all day"

"I was bloody delighted with this little tube of miracles! I don"t know how but as well as making me look smoothy smooth it helped clear my spots? I don"t know how, but it did it as I wasn"t using anything else. Will repurchase after I"ve done trying different primers. "

"My problem being is the dark circles under my eyes...Very dark circles. As impossible as it might seem, this primer actually makes them less visible. My skin also looks flawless after the application, and applying foundation over it is much easier than without it and stays for longer. Definitely worth the price! "

"I love this product is used it every day for £4 it"s really good for money and it fills in my pores and it"s a great product "

"Inexpensive but really great product! I find that you only need a tiny amount, but it keeps make up in place all day and stops it sinking into the pores, as it is designed. However, it is quite a thick product and does need to be well washed off to avoid acne or blemishes forming. "
