Recently my friend and I tried this product to see if it was worth buying or not. I will start by telling you that my friend is caucasian. I wanted to see if it would work differently on different skin types. Frist Heather used the base, came to work and no one noticed a difference. She was upset that her skin did not feel any softer nor was it easier to apply her foundation. I tried the base a couple of days later and instead of using a powder foundation I used the press powder foundation to see if tat would make a difference. Unfortunately the base did not make my skin any softer nor was it easier to apply my foundation. I would suggest you try the base for yourself to see if you like it but for Heather and I it was a definite MISS.
