Strongest points
I bought this ages ago and at first I thought it was okay but the more I used it the worse it got! Nothing good about this product at all.
Weakest points
It seems to go patchy especially if you use too much it can make your skin look worse and in turn can affect the the way your foundation, concealer looks.
Summary
Imagine your face was a canvas painting and you put some paint on and it looked bad well that's exactly the way this primer is. If it doesn't react with your skin properly everything else just doesn't work. Your make-up ends becoming a patchy mess.

Strongest points
A little product goes a long was so good value for money. Does not irritate the skin or block pores. Evens out skin tone and fine lines and does not block the pores. Controls and eliminates excess oil. Easy dispense tube packaging
Weakest points
Strange stale mint fragrance. Product is thick and white and takes some effort to apply. Shine control does not last
Summary
I purchased this product when my skin was suffering from extreme oil production and I wanted a makeup base that controlled the shine. When I first dispensed this cream it was not what I was expecting. The cream is thick and white and I found that it was not easy to apply to the face without work. The scent has a strange sort of stale mint smell. Once applied the results are immediate and it did smooth out my open pores and fin lines. Once on my skin it felt quite cooling and calming and my skin felt soft and looked mattified. After this things went slightly downhill. My makeup did not glide on smoothly and I spent some time using a product free brush to even out the patchy makeup application. Any powder products seemed to cling to the makeup base and cause a patchy effect. Once I had corrected this problem I found that my skin became oily again after a few hours. Whilst this is not a complete disaster product (there are some goods and bads) I rarely use it unless I really have a high shine moment. And then I use it more as a spot treatment for the worst areas
