Saw on another thread that this stuff is a better primer than most of the expensive actual primers and is great for disguising large pores?? Before I skip off to Superdrug going 'baaaaa' has anyone else tried it with good results?

It works but it feels quite heavy.

I ordered some last night. I get the impression it won't be something for everyday use...

Someone else mentioned Lacura (sp) serum used alongside the dermaflannel and said their pores are disappearing - quite temped to get that too.

And someone else mentioned Avon skin perfector. There were just too many to choose from! Will prob try them all.

What we need is something that hides pores AND contains SPF.

Avon Skin Perfector definitely helps to disguise pores and it keeps my nose shine free, however for me it dries out my skin. So I have a choice between flaky nose/no pores OR shiny nose/huge pores.
Interested to hear more about the Lanacane.

Bought it, but not used it, the smell has put me off.

Loads of primer reviews here both cheap and expensive. I'm currently using a Superdrug own brand but as I am new to this primer malarkey I would hesistate to recommend to anyone just yet.

Just seen that you said 'gel' I've only been and bought the wrong thing (the cream). So even less helpful.

I think all of these 'silicone' primers (for that is what they are) are only good for certain skin types - if you have oily skin (thank you nature!) they just help everything slide right off again after an hour... very disappointing!!

YY knitknack. The don't really work with oily skin. I saw it in poundland last week just a heads up.
