Where Have You Been All My Life??
-May 28, 2011
I stumbled across this product from a website listing the best sunscreens for 2011 and I decided to try it. I have oily skin with large pores and I'm prone to break out. Normally I use DHC Velvet Skin coat (which is amazing but doesn't have SPF) and Bliss Instant Mattification (which is good for my T-zone and acne but once again no SPF).
So when I found Jane Iredale's primer I was excited to try it because it had SPF and it controlled shine! But I thought it was a powder when I ordered it. It's actually a smooth cream that you sponge on. Its actually very easy to apply with velvety, clear coverage.
I really like this product, it's my second day of using it. The only thing I don't like is the smell. It has an odd fragrance resembling mint gum or something. I usually prefer things fragrance free.
But it does everything it promises! When I put it on, my skin looks 5 years younger and it hides my pores and controls my oily skin. Although it doesn't keep the shine away all day...you have to reapply.

Perfect shine free skin!

I was skeptical until I tried it, this works better at absorbing shine than anything else I've ever tried. It becomes invisible on the skin yet leaves a soft, matte finish that looks completely natural and is very flattering. SPF 15 sunscreen never looked so good. Try this! You won't be disappointed.
