I used this with my Dove moisturizer and my L'Oreal Bare Natural mineral foundation. I love this primer. I feel like it helped smooth out and hydrate my skin some more than just my moisturizer. I also noticed a difference in the staying power of my makeup all day. It also didn't come off my face as easy if I rubbed my face during the day. The best part was that my dry patches did not look as flaky when I wear this.
