I got this primer as part of the MUFE Rock For Ever Makeup Kit from last Christmas & didn’t start using it until these last two months, since I had misplaced it somewhere in the depths of my makeup collection. To be honest, this face primer caught me off guard since it is a lightweight, cream-based primer, with a different texture, compared to prior primers that I had been previously using. I love that it absorbs quickly and that you don’t have to wait for it to set into your face, so you can go right along with your foundation routine after applying it. Also, it doesn’t smell weird at all (unlike some primers that smell kind of funky or have an off-putting smell). This MUFE primer has a cucumber extract mixed with Vitamin E lotion scent, that is fresh, pure and clean- which I happen to like very much. The staying power for this primer is pretty exceptional- especially during the winter, when my skin gets a bit out of hand because my t-zone is still oily, but manage to have dry patches on certain parts on my face- so, this primer balances both moisturizing my skin and keeping it oil and shine free. Also, a little goes a long way- you do not need much of it to apply all over your face.
I honestly enjoyed using this primer during the winter time, so we’ll see if I still have some left to use during the spring (when my skin starts getting a bit more on the oily side) to see how it holds up my makeup. I would probably repurchase this primer maybe next fall- the price isn’t that bad for the travel size, since you get about 0.5 oz and it’s lasted me about 2 months (granted, I do use a different primer on occasion). I would give this primer an A! I love it’s performance, packaging (squeeze tube, with a fine-point tip), lasting power and how it makes my skin feel after putting it on (soft and moisturized).
