Not for me
FantasticI tried many primers from drug store to luxury brand, this primer is amazing, it helps minimise my large pores but also the lines on my face. My makeup stay on longer, I just love it, most importantly it didn’t break me out.
Silky and BrightProduct is really silky and fluid. Easy to apply but be careful when squeezing the product as a lot can come out. Not too much of a smell which I like and it made my skin look brighter but it is very pricey.
Not for meI received this as a sample and It’s a really nice product. It goes on smoothly and gives your face a dewy glow and it is lightly moisturising. However, this leads me into being an oily mess by the end of the day. I also think it’s overpriced.
SmootheningSad to say, I've never used primer before receiving a sample of this. It definitely smooths out the skin tone under make up, and make up glides on easily over the top. I noticed my make up held for longer as well.
BeautifulI received this as a gift with purchase. This gives a lovely glow and is a great base for my makeup.
smoothit is a little flowy but good for my dry skin. it spreads on the face very smoothly and quickly and makeup did stayed on for long hours after its use.
love itAmazing feel to the primer, goes on like moisturizer so you feel like you have coverage under your foundation :)
Really good PrimerI got a small tube of this as part of a kit. A little goes a long way and it feels nice on the skin. I think it definitely primes and hydrate the skin and you don't need to put too much foundation/powder on top. The cream itself fells light and it spreads well. You don't need much of it but because it feels good on the skin, you'd be tempted to put more on!
CreamyI liked this most on my day off when I mix it equal parts with my foundation, it created a really natural, dewy effect for me. And being a primer stayed that way all day!
Does the jobIt does what It says. Great primer to minmise fine lines and even out makeup application.
ExcellentI love this primer. With this my makeup lasts all day and reduces any signs of oily build up.
Very good primer!!!I have purchased this one a couple of times. It's extremely helpful for making my foundation smooth. Love it!!!
Okay on its ownReceived a sample tube. Firstly not a fan of how fragranced this is. Does a great job on bare skin to illuminate. Didn’t work for me as a makeup base though - too glowy. Definitely a good option for no makeup days though.
Great PrimerReceived this as a sample when I placed order last month. I tried it today, it’s a pleasure. It is light with a nice soft citrus scent. It is friendly to combination skin.
Love it!I don’t use this primer everyday but do use mostly on weekends or times when I am wearing more makeup. I definitely notice a difference when I do use this. I find my skin looks more hydrated, makeup goes on really well and lasts longer. I use this underneath the Jane iredale bb cream and pure pressed powder.
Long lasting make upSuch a great primer. Makes foundation go on very smoothly and makes it stay on for longer
Great!Helps to create a dewy glow in my complexion, its the perfect combination with my foundation. Lasts all day!
Nice primerI can't say I've tried a lot of primers, so don't have a lot to compare to, however this one does smell and feel lovely. I like!
Wow Primer!Great for combination skin doesn’t leave a heavy or tight feeling and makeup stays in place all day! Wow!!
Pretty goodI must admit, primers have never really been my thing so I don't really feel qualified to compare them. I did like the texture and scent of this one though - it felt really nice to apply. Some other primers I've used I felt like my foundation looked streaky over the top but this one didn't, so that's good. I'll probably keep using it. Didn't notice any real brightness/radiance effects. Did feel g...Read More
Pretty goodIt does brighten and fill in the fine lines and pores and helps foundation go on smoothly and feels hydrating.
light & smoothingReceived this as a sample and tried it with the my go to Jane Iredale glowtime mineral BB cream. It is light with a nice soft citrus scent. I didn't notice it made much difference in brightening my complexion but definately made my skin appear smoother and the didn't break me out or clog any pores.
Makeup applies like a dreamMakeup always applies flawlessly after using this. Also let’s my skin breathe and never lets my pores get clogged
I like itThis is a pretty good primer, I really like using it under my BB cream but wouldn't use it for under my foundation. I have dry skin and this did the job.
Smooth primerVery pleased with this primer! Glides on really well and works very effectively as a primer to achieve a nice even, consistent base before applying foundation or BB cream over the top. Helps make-up to last longer during the day.
Also has a lovely citrus scent which is a nice uplifting to start the day!
Makes my skin bright and hydrated!This primer is one of my favourites! It wears great underneath my foundation and does a great job of making my making my make up last all day long. It brightens and hydrates and also is so lightweight which is a bonus!
Best primer I’ve usedThis primer is thin and makes my skin smooth and brighter. It has a pleasant smell and seriously makes my make up apply better. A real game changer!
SmoothLove how this primer just glides on so smoothly and doesn't clog my pores - the mineral base is perfect for sensitive skin
GreatI applied my foundation and it went on quite nicely, felt smooth and hydrating. I felt the primer was a little thick for my skin, i really like a light texture, not thick creams, they just seem to sit on my skin and don't do as many good things for my skin as light lotions, that absorb in better.
Great productIt's a great makeup primer that makes my foundation go further, and helps to create a dewy glow in my complexion.
GreatI have purchased this before and love it. It makes your face smooth before applying foundation or leave it on naturally. After using it for a few months I have even noticed a difference in my complexion.
Great primerI’ve used a few primers over the years and I decided to try this one because I used the Jane Iredale mineral BB cream. It leaves your skin silky and I’ve definitely noticed my foundation applied much smoother than with other primers I’ve tried. It also smells great!
Great with other JI productsI use Liquid minerals in the winter, and the powdered minerals in the summer and this primer is perfect under either and keeps my foundation on for hours. It’s a permanent fixture in my makeup range
polished lookI have tried other primers that always seemed to leave me feeling that I had about an inch of make-up on my face and made me want to wash it off but this one is different.
You only need a small amount and it glides on and makes your skin feel super soft and smooth. It does what is says it does and minimises your pores so your skin looks polished which I love.
It definitly...Read More
The holy grail primerI received this as a sample and after using it for a few days I was sold and bought the full size. Great for combo skin, doesn’t leave a heavy or tight feeling and makeup stays in place all day!
LoveReceived as a sample and love this product makes my foundation sit nice on my skin. Will purchase full size.
amazingReceived a deluxe sample size, never heard of this brand before but decided to use it and test it out.
I must say wow! my makeup is flawless and does not crease at all. It stayed on all day. I just purchased the full size, I can't wait to receive it lol. It's more expensive compared to other primers I have used. So I think I'll save this for special occasions.
Not for oily/comboAlthough this initially feels lovely on the skin, it is not suited to oily/combo skin, it just slides off too easily. Go for the Jane Iredale oil free primer to prevent this.
Vey SMOOTHE!This primer leaves the skin extremely smooth, I love it! Definitely helps my makeup go on a lot better and last longer and gives it an overall better finish. Would recommend if you don’t like the greasy feel primers
Works best with Make Up in the Jane Iredale rangeGreat primer and accompanies Jane Iredale make up range really well! Didn’t work as well with non mineral cosmetics but I would assume it is not designed to. I would urge you to try it along side Janes foundation range :)
Great texture, smell divineA very uplifting good feeling easily glide on primer!
Love the smell. Skin feels fresh after application. Can use as a primer or on a lazy day just a moisturiser. I have oily/combination skin but prefer this primer to the other one designed for oily skin.
It’s devineI received a small tube of this primer as a gift with purchase and am so impressed with this primer.
It creates a flawless base and I find it helps the foundation stay all day without moving at all.
It makes my skin look youthful and glowy.
Definitely try this product if you are in need of a new primer
Really brightensI received this primer as a sample from Adore and have enjoyed using it. The primer definitely brightens my skin and gives it a nice glow. I'm not convinced on the staying power it gives my makeup, so not sure if I'd spend the money to purchase the full size.
My new HG Primer!I received a small tube of this primer as a gift with purchase and before I’ve even used it all up I’ve already purchased the full size! This primer is beautiful. It smooths out fine lines, plumps up the skin and imparts a lit from within glow. Applied under foundation it really gives your skin a soft focus, airbrush effect. When wearing this I checked my skin in daylight, on camera and in harsh s...Read More
Not the bestI used this for a year due to being non-comedogenic and more natural, although it didn't feel like it made any difference, maybe even made my skin oilier because I live with humid weather. I highly recommend Stila One Step Correct for problem skin or Hourglass White Veil.
Every day stapleThis primer glides on easily and helps my make up sit well all day. I have quite dry, sensitive skin and have never had any issues. Love it.
GreatGreat primer it feels so nice on، not heavy
GreatGreat primer, not heavy. My make up stays put all day. Just try it
Good product, bit expensiveI have been using Jane Iredale for years, and got a free sample of this product from Adore Beauty. I have sensitive skin prone to dryness, and this product helped to sooth and protect my skin under the Jane Iredale BB cream. It also made the BB cream sit better on my skin. Whilst it works for me, I use it sparingly given that it is more expensive than the BB cream.
Super pretty!I love the feel of this product! it's lightweight, and super moisturizing! I absolutely love it under any coverage. Definitely a must buy.
Fantastic PrimerFeels great on your skin and helps keep your make up looking fabulous. Love it!
Uneven skin tone saviorI have quite uneven skin tone with redness on my cheeks this primer tones down the redness and evens out my skin tone allowing my foundation to glide on
Help keep my foundation onFeel lovely to put on and yes it definitely helps set my make up and keep it there all day
Beautiful primerLeaves the skin so smooth and hydrated ready for foundation application. Applies beautifully under the BB cream. I have oily/combination skin
Brightening and correctingReceived this as a sample and had to purchase straight away. Does such a great correcting job and really evens my skin tone so it’s perfect for applying foundation. Subtly illuminates without being too over the top.
The mineral makeup prep you need.Most people learn the difference between wants and needs when they're around 10. You might want a donut, but do you really NEED it? A valuable life lesson if you ask me, and one that will carry you through life right up until you're making makeup and skincare purchases in your thirties.
Well, it took me a while to realise that I actually needed this primer. I'd used the Jane Iredale ...Read More
Has skincare benefitsSometimes I use this primer without skincare prior as I feel this gives me enough moisture and has skincare benefits in it already
SoothingI use Smooth Affair after my face cream.
I find my foundation will stay on all day and into the night, and it leaves a soothing moisturising feeling that helps with fine lines.
I never used a primer before but received this product as a sample, I loved it so much that I never use foundation without it.
It does say you can mix with your cream but I haven't tried that.
Don't ...Read More
Beautiful but expensiveThis product is currently on my wishlist but I have not purchased it because I'm finding it hard to justify the price tag. It is a beautiful primer... I received it in sample size from Adore beauty. Its a light cream/gel texture and there is a slight smell of citrus. I did feel like it was a great shield for my skin and I liked it so much I cut the top off so that I could get every drop out! But i...Read More
Lovely primerGreat primer especially if you're after a mineral primer.
Beautiful productI love this and highly recommend a great primer plus gives your skin a healthy glow under foundation the best iv ever used
GreatVery moisturising and smoothing. Looks great under the Glow Time BB Cream, and doesn't slip and slide around on your face. Smells great too!
minimize the appearance of poresgreat smell, feel like applying serum on skin, only need pea size to cover the whole face, and it does minimize the appearance of pores. however, in term of oil control, i couldn't tell any difference with or without this primer, i still need to reach my blotting paper or setting powder after 3 or 4 hours
Amazing smellThis smells amazing and makes my skins feel soft , smooth and moisturised. My makeup glides and my face looks brighter . A little goes a long way . Shall definitely repurchase .
Does not aggravate my breakoutsFirst primer I've ever used and so far so good. I have oily skin and breakouts but this primer doesn't aggravate my skin at all.
Great product not for my oily skin unfortunately.I have oily skin which is so disappointing because although this product makes my skin feel great at first i would suggest spmething with more oil control for people such as myself.
BrilliantThis smells divine and makes my skins feel soft and moisturised. My makeup goes on beautifully after using this and whilst it is a bit expensive, it lasts a long time. I started using this after I tried it in a sample kit and I was hooked.
Amazing!Beautiful product. I'm sure it has helped clear up my rosacea which was an unexpected but amazing side effect!
Smells great but worth the price?I've been using this primer for a few weeks now and there is not much bad that I can say about it. It is light textured, smells great and does a good job helping my makeup stay put throughout the day. It spreads really well which means that you only need to use a little bit, so the tube should last a while!
It is however, quite pricey and I'm not sure whether I can justify spending th...Read More
