- The packaging is bland
Summary
I love the feel of this primer on my skin. I don't think it would suit someone with oily skin very much as they may feel that it is greasy but for dry skin, such as mine, it allows my foundation to glide across my skin and for it to feel supple throughout the day. I usually apply it with my fingers as it goes on so easily and it sinks into the skin pretty quickly so that I can place my foundation on fairly soon afterwards.

Not good for oily skin despite being oil free
Summary
This product is packaged well and a little goes a long way. I found that even when using this my make up didn't last any longer than normal. I also felt that it blocked my pores which led to more breakouts. Most of the time I found that my mineral foundation didn't go on the skin evenly when I used this primer after reading great reviews I was left very disappointed with this product.

Only need a tiny amount, so great value for money. In easy pump container, so you never end up with too much product. Provides a great base for make up, closing pores.
Weakest points
I have very oily skin and it doesn't quite work well enough to mattify my skin and stop the shine coming though. Make up still shifts within a matter of hours.

Good Primer, perhaps not best on oily skin though.

I had really high hopes for this particular primer, being a fan of Bare Escentuals and having a large collection of make up from the range I thought this would suit me down to a tee, however this just didn't work for me. I have very oily skin and often find that my make up shifts within half an hour. I had been looking for a primer for a quite sometime when someone told me about this. The application of the primer was easy and pleasant it was silky smooth and seemed to sink in leaving an even base, however within 10 minutes of applying the primer my face had an oily sheen and the make up wouldn't apply evenly. I was so disappointed as I wanted this to work but I would say for excessively oily skin like mine, it just doesn't do the trick.

I'm undecided with this primer. I would definitely use it with my bare minerals foundations and I guess that what bare minerals have tried to do but for me this doesn't work well with other foundations.
