Just.. No I can imagine if you have very, very dry skin that this is a great product but if you have sensitive skin just avoid it. After using this my poor skin broke out in spots within around 4 hours, I went out spot free and came back with around 4 spots on my cheeks it feels overly greasy, if used under foundation the foundation doesn't blend well and your skin turns into a slip and slide for the foundation, it's just not worth the money. Revlon photoready primer is so much better and you can get 2 bottles for the price of this and still have change. April 19, 2016
PERFECT for dry skin!!! My skin is normal to dry, with patches of very dry skin with tend to leave my nose peeling, and I always suffer from breakouts! My foundation always has a tendency to never sit right on my face, and tends to flake off on my peely nose. This primer is just amazing, the fact it is an oil and a primer in one makes my morning routine so much easier and quicker. Putting a few drops of this and rubbing it in to my face makes my foundation sit perfectly and my nose stays flake free the whole day, giving me a natural glowing finish! Without looking wet or oily! For the best result I would suggest using one drop at a time, building it up until you get the perfect moisture layer, if you have more combo skin you can use a little and then add another drop concentrating on your dry areas! After rubbing this in I am left looking glowy, I wait around 2-3 mins before applying my No7 perfect stay foundation and am left with a beautifully hydrated face throughout the day! Since I have a tendency to get a LOT of brake outs!! I am always conscious of adding new products in to my routine, but this has not made be break out at all! I am just so glad to have this in my life!!!! The only down side is that this product is very pricy, but you only need to use a little, so would think this would last me at least half a year!

Best Primer I've used to date I bought this primer oil after reading an article on primers that said you should avoid silicone based primers if you suffer with dry skin. I have psoriasis which means very dry and flacky skin, this Primer Oil not only soothes my dry skin but hydrates it, leaving me with the option of a makeup free day or the perfect canvas to put my makeup on. I use 3-4 drops and leave for a minimum of 3 minutes to absorb before I apply my makeup. It feels lovely on the skin and the essential oils smells lovely too without being over powering. So far I'm delighted with this primer, my makeup looks dewy without being shine or oily and I have used different foundation types, liquid, mineral and compact and have found it great with all of them. A small amount goes along way with this product and the dropper lid makes it very easy to use. I also apply a couple of drops of this at night now instead of using my moisturiser or argon oil as it has helped to improve and sooth my dry skin in only a few days. July 2, 2016
