I'm in my mid 50's and have sensitive skin. I use this primer to hide my large pores. It does a good job. It doesn't irritate my skin or make my wrinkles more noticeable. I've actually gotten complements on my skin since I started using it under my makeup ... that's a first for me!

It also makes my skin very soft. It has a light weight feel and nice scent no matter how much I use. I am blemish prone, but haven't had any breakouts from this product.

If I'm using it alone I'm careful not to put on too much. I just use it in the middle of my face (nose area, chin, forehead and cheeks near nose). The reason is I'm very skinned. If I apply too much, the weird shade is noticeable where it meets my bare face. The shade out of the tube is hideous. Luckily it doesn't appear that way on my face unless I use too much.

If I plan to wear it under makeup I put it on heavier. It makes my makeup look very nice. It washes off easily. I've tried several other primers (expensive ones) This one beats them all and costs less.

My one and only complaint is the shade. I've never seen a human being who's skin was the color of this shade. How and Why Rimmel came up with such an awful shade is mind boggling. If the shade was more of a natural shade I'd probably use it alone and give up makeup.

When I first applied it it was realy smooth, but quickly became greasy. It has a horrible orange tone to it! I am very fair and even when I put my foundation on over it, you can see the orange tones. Looks terrible, made me breakout - total waste of money. Never again.

    Comments about Rimmel Foundation Primer 001, 1 fl oz:

    A girlfriend of mine recommended this to me and I'm glad she did. I really like this product. I know others have complained about the orange color, but for me it blends right in to my skin tone - and I have a fairly light complexion. My face doesn't look orange AT ALL when I use this. Just to finish the look off, most of the time I dab a little face powder on over top of it and I'm good to go!

      IF YOU ARE ON THE FENCE DO NOT BUY THIS! please listen i bought this despite the reviews and i absolutely HATE it.
      does not make your skin smooth and does not even out your complexion.does not prolong the wear of your foundation. the only thing this does is make your skin ORANGE! and not just a little A WHOLE LOT! please please be smart and listen to the reviews!

            It's orangey which seems to tint the skin unfavorably.
            It doesn't "prime." I still need to apply a heavy moisturizer or the makeup fades away.
            I am not actually sure what this product does except for tinting the skin orange.

                    Comments about Rimmel Foundation Primer 001, 1 fl oz:

                    This is the best foundation primer I have found and I have tried many higher end brands. It is non-greasy and won't clog pores like the silicone type primers and it brightens my skin tone. Coverage is light to medium, and I finish it with a loose mineral powder. If I need more coverage, I blend in a little bit of mineral tinted moisturizer with the primer; this also works for cold weather when extra protection is called for. The look is very natural and it lasts all day. Save your money and try this one instead of those expensive department store primers!

                        I was looking for a less expensive alternative to ColorScience's Wild to Mild Primer, which I adore. I gave this one several chances. It evens the skin tone, but does not seem to smooth my skin as I'd hoped. The color is not a problem. The last few times I used it my face has been itchy and dry. Wish I could recommend it!
