This is one of the best primers (make up bases) I have ever used. It smooths and softens those little expression lines above the eyes, on the forehead, and even the squinchy laugh lines. My face looks several years younger after simply applying the primer! But what is really great is the way my foundation stays in place and looks good all day, because it attaches to the primer like an anchor instead of vanishing into your skin. Eye makeup stays in place much better. too. It's silly to spend a lot of money on blush, foundation, powder, bronzer, etc. only to have it disappear because you skipped the primer! I first tried this at a Clarins counter during a makeover. I'm so glad I bought this as one of my immediate product buys. It's a product that makes a dramatic impact on your looks for relatively little money. Once you try it you will wonder how you ever got ready in the morning without it!
