Has made all the difference
When I first started wearing Alima Pure foundation I didn’t use this primer and I almost gave up on it. I have been used to liquid foundation (not natural ones), but when I switched to natural products the liquids were so expensive so I wanted a less expensive foundation for every day (I’m a stay at home mom) – and a liquid for special occasions. My skin is a bit on the oily side and I feel like I’m so dark around the eyes. I didn’t think the Alima Pure foundation helped brighten my eyes, and as I went through my day the oil on my nose and forehead kind of wore my foundation off. I just didn’t feel like I looked nice, and I didn’t feel good about myself. But when I started using this primer, I was sold. You only need a little, and it really does keep your makeup in place. When you put it on, you can’t even see it on your skin. But if you compare your foundation when you wear it to when you don’t, you will know it is doing what it is supposed to. To me, this primer made all the difference and I highly recommend it. A girl needs to feel good about herself, and the price is worth it to me.

Not necessary for me
I’m not a big fan of primers. I think it’s overkill, just an extra step to add to my already extensive skin care/make up routine. I find Alima foundations work just fine without this primer layer. But I guess if you have particularly oily or blotchy skin this might be worthwhile.

Works well for extra areas of redness that the foundation alone can’t cover. I have areas of extreme redness and this helps keep them in check under the rest of Alima’s wonderful makeup!
Put all of your makeup in its place beautifully, for a natural, flawless finish that you can take from day to evening.
