I received this primer also for Christmas. It retails for £21.50 and you get 11ml of product. The tube (which to my amusement looks much like a glue stick) is deceptively large as it is only slightly smaller than the POREfessional yet it holds half the amount. Luckily you do not need a lot to make this work.
The primer comes out a pinky colour and has a creamy texture. Like all Benefit products it is fragranced, it smells sweet but lacks the fruity element that the POREfessional has. I apply my moisturiser first, wait a while and apply this to my face. I have to admit, that this does even out skin tone and brighten my face well, probably because of the pinky colour. I could wear this alone with a bit of concealer if I wanted to, as it certainly makes my face look very 'glowy'. It provides a nice base for my foundation, and allows it to glide easily over problem areas, something which I found the POREfessional unable to do.
There's not much to say on this product. It does what it says it will do very well, however I found that it does not do much else. On me, my make up did not stay on for longer than it would usually, and pores are still visable after using this. It just evens out skin tone, gives your face a nice glow and provides a nice base for your make up. Anyone looking for a primer that will hold your make up in place should probably try out other primers.
The price is an issue for me. I can see this product lasting a while because of how little is needed, but the packaging design means that sometimes the product leaks through the holes, for £21.50 I wouldn't have expected this to happen, sort it out Benefit! If they sort out the packaging I may consider repurchasing this product again, because I do like the results and even though it is expensive it means that I can sometimes skip on the foundation! Have any of you tried this product? What did you think of it?
