Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brightening Face Primer It pumps out the right amount and glides onto the skin, my skin has quite dry areas and it balances out great, a perfect primer. 21 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product, easy delivery! This is just what I needed, I also found it great that in my panic of nearly running out I could order this and collect the next day from the store round the corner! Convenience at it's best! 25 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little product Light & easy to apply, this primer is one of my favourite things - it makes applying foundation much easier and does seem to reduce the lines especially around the eyes ans mouth. Works for me! 07 December 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by this is a nice product When I first used this product and the instructions did not specify well whether or not it should go with, under or over my daily moisturiser, I had to experiment. I found that one drop was not really enough, so I eventually used a little more...over a thin film of moisturiser. It left my face 'makeup ready', but how long would the effect last? Well I 'did my face' at 6.30am...and at 3pm, my face still looked fresh...and the slightly overpowdered look had softened ( I was still working on the bare minerals powder I had also bought) leaving a slightly 'dewy' appearance , but not at all oily on my combination skin. I needed to 'touch up' by about 5pm, but only a quick 'blot' and a little blusher re-applied worked fine. I found that I needed less foundation, less blusher and a lot less powder to keep me looking OK for most of the day....and carrying the product over my neck and lips held my lipstick for longer, and helped 'blend out' my foundation to leave a pleasant, natural finish with no tide-mark. Yes, this is a good basic product which , on my older skin, is a great help to avoid the 'mask' of an older, made up face...I like it! 23 June 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Primer Read any review or top ten list and this is always on there, it is a really good product. I think that there are better primers on the market in this price range and that is the only reason why this primer doesn't get 5 stars however I'm not going to knock it. It's a good primer, easy to apply, gives a really nice, even, sort of luminous but not too shiny finish and keeps your foundation in place all day. The only reason I would say that it isn't the best is because I personally prefer primers which have more of a moisturiser-type consistency but that's really just my preference. 10 June 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is very good. Only a little drop is required for coverage and it glides on so smoothly. It is an excellent base for foundation and I have no hesitation in recommending it to others. 26 June 2011
