How to use:

$6 /£6

I have had this product awhile, I got it in January , 
This product comes in a small pump container. Though the container gives the appearance that the product is white, when dispensing the product, you will notice that it’s actually a clear gel. I normally use two pumps for the whole face, means you really need a small quantity,It spreads and  blends really well and does create a lovely base for make up. My skin always feel like velvet afterward, this is because it has two types of silicone in it. This primer feels a bit oily when you start applying it to the face but as you blend it in , it becomes almost soft and with  light powder-ish feeling while leaving my skin feeling supple and moist.This primer doesn't make my face dry or flaky and it actually seemed to help with oil control with appearance of pores. I have a dry skin , with oily T zone , so i concentrate on my T zone while applying , as it help oil control.
Over all its a nice affordable primer, i have Lo'real studio secrets primer too, but i reach for it mostly as it spreads easily and needs a small amount.
Ultra smooth, clear, gel.

Con:The only Con  is the packaging. You cannot see how much you have left unless you unscrew the pump. The pump also lets this product down as I cannot pump any out anymore.

For Pakistani Readers: My brother brought it from UK when i won ELF goodies giveaway in winters, you can order it from here
