Josie Maran's first-ever antiaging skin-care finisher and makeup primer in one, this creamy, whipped, lightweight argan oil-based formula finishes both your skin-care and makeup routine for a smooth, radiant glow. Makeup glides on seamlessly while providing a subtle glow and softly sculpting the face with luminous light.

How do I use it: Using a gentle patting motion, delicately press a thin layer of balm onto moisturized skin as a skin-care finisher and makeup primer. For the ultimate finishing touch, apply after your complete makeup routine for a velvety smooth look. Can be used throughout the day to revitalize and refresh the look of your complexion and makeup.

From Josie Maran.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Identity Challenge OK -- so it is balm plus it is a makeup primer. I have tried my fair share of primers and this does not feel like a primer at all. I have tried to use it as a light moisturizer and a primer and I guess it works well. Not sure if the identity of the product. Makes the skin feel good though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from smooth, nutritious balm that's the bomb I have tried all the QVC brand primer---this surpasses them all ---targeted treated primer that provides a nice canvas before your makeup. LOVE this...nice patted on top as a finisher too. Fab!! Josie's stuff is thee best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! My only issue is that not enough comes in a jar. But I learned to glide my finger slightly over it and get just enough. This isn't like other Josie products. Although I use them all, for me, it's my favorite. I have oily skin, prone to breakouts with discoloration from years of managing acne and now just from aging. With the help of Josie products, such as the face butter and milk devotion for my eyes, I'm winning the battle. With Surreal skin, I'm taking my skincare to new levels. I strive for makeup optional skin. This product is sophistication. It mattefies without drying, smooths my overall tone and controls oil. All day. I love it. If you're looking for a more emollient product. This isn't it. If you already have oily skin but want to control it with a smooth finish, this is it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS! I have always liked Josie's body products, but most of the face products are just WAY too greasy for me. I have been searching for a lightweight moisturizer, and although this is billed as a primer, it works beautifully as a light moisturizer on my oily skin. I use it everywhere (yes, including all around my eyes) and my skin feels hydrated but matte. I love it. I mix it with the transformer fluid when I want to wear 'makeup' and it works great. I can see a very, very subtle glow on my cheekbones, and appreciate that the glow is not glittery like some of the body products.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I purchased this as I enjoy many of Josie's products. I am very disappointed with this product. It does not leave a "lit from within glow" at all. I was unable to see any light reflecting pigments. I do not think I will keep this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't do anything I don't believe this product is worth the money. It really doesnt do anything. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It's to expensive not to benefit the make up process at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A pleasant surprise This came as a sample in a set, and I thought the idea of finishing balm was strange. I couldn't fathom putting a cream on my face AFTER my make-up was set. But I did one day, and it was amazing! It took the dry, powdery look off my skin, and gave me a matte, luminous finish. I have also used it on my bare face to matte out any shine. It helps me wear my bare skin in confidence! I do think it's a unique product, so purchasing as s gift would be a gamble.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but with a problem. This product is really good, it does what it says, and is perfect on my skin. The problem is that I could go through this in less than two weeks if used on a daily basis. It's a small amount in a small container, so really quite expensive for what you get. Love it, but doubt I will be ordering it again.
