I received a 15ml sample size of this product in Birchbox and thought it was just another primer to add to my stash. I was wrong. The sample came in a cute plastic bottle which is an exact replica of the full size 30ml bottle, although the full size bottle is glass. The bottle is study and sleek looking - it has a high end feel to it which is confirmed by the £28 price tag! Luckily I had some Birchbox points to use so I only had to pay £18 towards it.
The makeup base is a very lightweight formula that smooths and hydrates the skin. It comes out as a very pale peach but doesn't colour the skin in any way once it's rubbed in. I was a convert from the first use - it made my skin feel silky without any stickiness or greasiness whatsoever. It doesn't mattify the skin nor does it make it dewy, it just sinks in and provides a beautiful base for foundation.
You don't need a lot; I only use a pea sized amount and I'm just coming to the end of my sample size after using it for about 8 weeks! This means I should get a good 3-4 months out of the full size version if I continue to use it everyday.
