Budget friendly and as per the title, just as good as all the more expensive higher end brands.
The product is around R50 and available at clicks, Dischem and some pharmacies.
It is silicon based and has a gel texture which applies smoothly and minimizes the appearance of pores. – no product will make them disappear. Not forever at least.
It creates a perfect canvas by acting as a makeup primer and smoothes the appearance of your skin so that foundation applied over it will have an even and smooth finish.
It has a bit of a chemically smell due to it being silicon based.
I would recommend this product to others however anyone with really oily skin will not benefit from this product.
