I need a primer for my skin since my makeup just wears out in minutes if I don't wear anything. I went for this primer because it seems to have benefits in clearing acne and it makes my skin less shiny. As you can see it is a white liquid moisturizer texture. When I put it on my face, it feels like I am putting on a moisturizer. This really controls my oily t-zone as well and it gives my skin a matte finish. Sometimes I feel I can put this on and I don't even have to put foundation on.

- If you have oily skin, this will make your skin less oily
- This helps the make-up stay on all day
- Very pricey for a primer
- I don't know if this actually banish blemishes

Rating 7/10
I give this primer a 7/10. The reason for this is because of the price. This is so expensive for a primer. I don't think primer needs to be that expensive. I have used other primer that is just as good or even better that does the job as well. I understand this is like a two in one but still. I don't think I will purchase this product again when I finish using it. I am going to try and find other primer instead.
Hi Everyone,

Thank you to those who have still continued to read my blog or visit it. I have not updated it for over 9 months now. The reason is I have been really busy with my personal life. I started this during my Uni years when I didn't have much to do so I blogged during my free time to stress relieve.

My perception of make-up/skincare/beauty has changed as well. I use to watch lots of youtube beauty videos and stuff but I feel I have moved on from that phase and watch it only occasionally. I put on make up but only very little and I get really lazy with skincare and stuff as well. However, I find blogging to be a stress relief so I will try to continue to blog and post something every week. :)
