Skin type: oily/combination  I love this primer-I apply it directly to my skin in a patting motion only to my t zone area where I know I suffer from oily ness. I use this often under my B.B. cream and my makeup stays put for at least 8 hours, which is impressive! It has a fragrance which is fresh and lovely, it smooths out the skin and sits perfectly under foundation. It’s my go to drug store primer! 
This product has a pink colour which I think was supposed to help with redness. The pump is very handy for not pumping too much product. It spreads quite well but in no way is it mattifying, if anything I think it made my skin shinier. It does have a nice fragrance.
I was disappointed with this primer as I felt it didn't do what you would want a good primer to do.   First the positives! I did feel that it brightened my skin which was great and made it look healthier. It is also quite easy to blend into your skin and doesn't feel like a film sitting on your face. It also does give a more matte appearance and is also not silicone based so because of that it would definitely suit oily complexions more.   I was disappointed with this primer though because it did not last long at all before it would start flaking and peeling off my skin. It also did not work well with my foundations(Bourjois foundations as well!), my foundation had lasted less time than when I didn't wear it. It also was not moisturising at all and would cling to the dry patches around my nose so I would not recommend this to people with normal or dry skin. This also might not be great for people with sensitive skin as there is a very strong fragrance which doesn't fade.   Overall I feel that there are better primers available at the moment in drugstores and would recommend looking at those rather than this.
