It's hard to see in the comparison picture, but you can tell the side with the Conditioning Cream is a lot smoother and brighter. I noticed the pores on my hands were slightly less noticeable and overall my skin looked smoother.
I would say this helps smooth your face before you apply your base makeup so if you have slight dry patches this will help cover those. This product leaves my face with a soft, natural finish. It's not dewy, but it's not matte either. I wouldn't say this really prolongs the staying power of my base makeup though. As a primer it mainly smooths, and slightly helps with pores and skin tone.
Also, because this has SPF 25 you may not need to apply any sunscreen depending on how much sun protection you prefer. Beware of flash photography though because SPF products usually leave a white cast in photos.
- no scent
- smooths skin
- contains SPF
- makes foundation look better
- leaves natural finish
- pills on my skin
- doesn't cover pores very well
- very thick texture
- doesn't really prolong the wear of base makeup
If you have drier skin and need to smooth slight dry patches I would give this a shot. If you have really dry skin though this may not be enough because it's not super moisturizing. Even if you have oily skin like me I think this will work well. It didn't leave me looking super shiny throughout the day which is good.
I would compare the coverage of this to a CC cream. It gives slightly less coverage than my TonyMoly Pure Aura CC Cream which doesn't have very high coverage. This product isn't meant to replace base makeup though it's only supposed to slightly brighten the skin. When paired with base makeup I really enjoy this product.
Overall this gets a thumbs up from me!
