Whoa, it's been a while since I made a post on my blog. It's really hard to keep up with my nursing classes and write up a post every other night on my blog. The week before Valentine's day, I was so busy study for midterm exams. The week of Valentine's, I had midterms, and the week after I was recovering from all of the studying and staying up late that I had to do.

Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch is a make up primer that acts as a barrier for your skin. I also find that it makes foundation look a lot smoother. It is a silicone based primer which may break out a few of you, so be careful. Being so, it goes on smoothly-literally-and evens out uneven skin tone pigmentations, also pores. It also diminishes fine lines, and wrinkles-mature skins will definitely love this.
It's housed in a red small jar, with a small tiny spatula to dip inside. Even though it does come in a little jar, a little goes a very long way! Clarins Instant Smooth lasts a very long time, so I would recommend if you don't like going out to buy make up often to buy this.
For me, it has a lot of oil-control. I do like using it on scars and my t-zone area. For someone who is extremely oily, I am not too sure if it'll help with control their oil. It also helps minimize dry and flakey area's of my face, which is why I think this will work well for dry skins as well. I really love how it locks in moisture and does not make your skin feel dry. This primer is fragrance-free, that has a pink pigmented look in the jar but goes on transparent on your skin.
I would recommend this for almost all skin types expect sensitive and maybe a few acne prone skins. Some people have claimed to receive whiteheads with this and a few spots.
For $34 dollars they offer .50 oz/15 ML of product, which I stated before, doesn't seem like a lot but it does last ages. I have still barely even made a dent in mine. I am really loving this primer and I have notice a big difference to my foundation. The fact that it is comes in a small little jar makes it great for travel; hence, the reason why I always put it in my make-up bag. I have received a few compliments on my face from my girl friends about how nice my face looks, and I already knew it was because of this primer.
Have you tried this?
