I do like this primer, however I’m not a big fan of spray primers anymore. It preps the skin well and nourishes the skin. It is a bit like a moisturiser rather than a primer it smooths the skin but I don’t think it works to help keep the makeup on longer.
Foundation lays on top of this primer really well but if your skin is oily I’ve found it tends to separate the foundation.
Overall this is a good primer but it is not for me personally.

I am in my late teens with combination, light tone skin and blue eyes. My hair is blonde, normal with normal texture.
Seeing so many reviews on this product with people saying it’s a good dupe for high end primers,I decided to give it a try.For just £6 you really can’t go wrong with this product! At first when I applied this primer I thought that it wouldn’t make a difference however when I applied my favourite revolution foundation on top I found that it did infact make my foundation look smoother and my pores weren’t as visible as they were before! The only down-side though is that for me,it didn’t do it’s job as a primer to keep my foundation on for longer🤷🏼♀️I think that may be because it’s water-based and not a silicone-based primer.Despite this,I still think it’s a good quality product for its price and for the way it makes my foundation go on a lot better! This is a great product and I do recommend but just not really for me.

I was quite taken a back when this product. Usually a MAC prep & prime and illamasqua hydra veil fan, this was a total impulse buy.
It leaves the skin surface quite tacky, which means foundations ticks right to it, super easy to use! Although I prefer hydra veil the most as I love a gel/ cream, this isn't far behind MAC at all. Keeps makeup in place all day & greatnproce tag if your eyes on a budget.

I am in my mid 30's with dry, fair tone skin and blue eyes. My hair is dark brown, dry with coarse texture.
I got this as I wanted to try a spray on primer and this looked like a good one to begin with. I use three to four sprays to cover my entire face and then fan it a bit with my fingers to dry it, I sometimes tap it into my skin and wait 30 seconds to start my makeup. It dries down tacky and gives my skin a dewy base, I have combination, sensitive skin and it does not break me out or make me go oily. It works really well as a primer and my makeup stays put at least for 8 hours plus. I love that it gives a dewy, flawless finish and is so easy to use and carry, can't ask for any more at the price!

I am in my late 20's/early 30's with combination, tanned tone skin and brown eyes. My hair is medium brown, dry with normal texture.
This product works well and is a good primer. It sprays onto the face nice like a most rather than to wet that leaves it too wet to apply anything. I always use a brush to rub my water based or misty primers into the skin and this one worked exactly the same as all the others. Nice packaging too

I am in my mid 20's with combination, fair tone skin and blue eyes. My hair is light brown, dry with fine texture.
For starters, this is very refreshing when sprayed on in the morning. It makes foundation glide on very well and seems to help make up last through the day.
I do have quite visible pores and although this did help stop the foundation from settling in them, they were still visible after a few hours, though not as much as if I’d applied the foundation directly to my skin.
It’s a decent primer for a decent price. I do think that I prefer a gel or cream formula though

I bought this primer a few weeks back and I'm very impressed, As my skin isn't the best and has quite enlarged pores sometimes my base isn't as flawless as I want it to be however with this primer my foundation sits perfectly on top giving me a flawless finish each time! The only negative thing I would say about it is that it sprays everywhere so if you don't want your top or hair getting sprayed cover yourself but then again that's what you expect with a liquid formula. 10/10 Recommend.

This is quick and easy and a wonderful primer. I use this everyday and I will definitely buy again. There isn't really a scent to it which Is great. It is a great base for foundations and adds moisture to the face. Go buy it! Now! You won't regret it.
