I used to use this all the time but for some reason, I stopped using it. However, I went back to it a few days ago and I love it so much. I love how it was witch hazel in it. Also, you don`t need a huge amount because a little goes a long way. I`d say that this is probably my favourite drugstore primer which is quite good because I don`t really tend to get on with drugstore primers that well. Not to mention, it doesn`t cost a lot so you`ll get your money worth.

A good primer I have bought it a few times, can purchase it in wilkos for a cheap price. Has witch hazel in it which is used in most acne treating products and helps treat acne so it has two purposes really and multitasks. It is a good drugstore primer definetly try it!x

I disagree with a lot of the reviews on here. Ive tried so many drugstore primers and I feel like this is really underated, especially for the price. I usually prefer a primer that gives luminosity, but wanted to try this for the pore minimising...and if that is what you need from your primer this one works like magic! Its really mattifying as well and makes foundation glide on effortlessly. So many primers out there at the moment don't do anything more than a simple moisturiser does and it's nice to use one that makes a visible difference to your face instantly.

I am in my late 20's/early 30's with normal, light tone skin and grey eyes. My hair is medium brown, dry with fine texture.
I was after an affordable primer as funds have been low since I decided to go back to college and I had ran out. I am definitely happy with how this primer performs, my makeup lasts longer than it would without a primer (there are still others out there that are much better for this) but it does seem to minamize the appearence of pores quite well. I think for it's price, I would definitely recommend it if you are in need of a primer on those days where you're on a low budget, it's not bad!

I am in my mid 20's with combination, light tone skin and green eyes. My hair is medium brown, combination with normal texture.
My make up lasted for longer and the witch in it actually does it's job. As it was cheap i thought it would have a silicon texture to it but it doesn't, i use it everyday.It doesn't give you a matte feel but i personally don't need that so it's good for it's price in my opinion.

I am in my late teens/early 20's with dry, light tone skin and green eyes. My hair is medium brown, normal with coarse texture.
I didn't even know primer was a thing until about six months ago. I bought this one for a ridiculously low price (don't ask because I can't remember, it was on sale) and I fell in LOVE. It does have a very silicon-like texture and consistency to it, but if that doesn't bother you it's brilliant. It seems to add a barrier between my skin and my makeup, and I break out a lot less when I'm using this, which probably has something to do with the "witch" technology. Please note I always use Tesco's PRO formula for men sensitive moisturiser before apply my lrimer and makeup.

I like this primer. It feels light weight and never blocks up my pores. It's a bargain for the price i think. The witch hazel in it doesn't do anything though so that is slightly misleading. It does not minimise pores either. I don't know if this review is trustworthy because I have only ever used this primer, I've never tried another so I have no means to compare it to anything else.

Feels quite greasy on the skin and takes a while to rub in, makes skin soft when first applied but I feel as though it doesn't last all day. doesn't reduce the appearance of blemishes either like it claims. quite disappointed.

I had mixed views on this one it went on really nicely and smoothly I really liked how my make up applied on it but it didn't last between my eyebrows is melted and sat in a big smear and under my eyes too I was in a hot club so that may have a part to play in it and I only had it on for 5 hours
