Why: Readers call this a "must have" and the "holy grail of primers," because it makes skin "smooth as a baby's bottom!" People love that "it fills in lines and pores and allows foundation to be applied more smoothly." And one says, "Some primers are too slimy, some primers are too gunky, this one is just right! The consistency is thick enough to work with but it melts right onto you face erasing the appearance of pores and wrinkles -- and on top of that it FEELS great!" And as a bonus, many were "shocked that the price was so reasonable, being a Clarins product."
