I have used a lot of primers in my life, none of them did what they actually claimed to do but having said that it definitely made for easier foundation application! This primer minimizes the appearance of pores (the pores on my nose appeared much smaller) and it left a very smooth canvas to apply my foundation on and the application of foundation felt like a breeze. It is expensive at nearly R400 but if you want to invest in a good primer I suggest this one :)
