Beauty Review: Palladio Herbal Foundation Primer

This review is based on my Skin Type: Oily/Acne Prone, Fair/Medium, Age 25-30.

I read a lot of great reviews about this face primer and finally decided to pick it up at Sally Beauty Supply while I was in Seattle. I have always had trouble with keeping my makeup from sliding off my face and I thought I would give this primer a go. 

Thoughts on the first use, it feels like an oily film on my skin, it makes my skin feel smooth but it doesn't stop my skin from flaking on the cheeks where my skin has some dry patches. I use it under my eyes prior to applying concealer and this prevents my concealer from creasing. This primer did minimize the size of my pores around my nose area. I don't think this primer smooths the bumpy acne t-zone, however, I do find it reduces my oiliness with touch-ups through out the day.

Overall I score this product a 3 out of 5 stars for the quality and staying power. I don't believe I will purchase this product again. I don't enjoy the oily film feeling on my skin.
