Rated 2 out of 5 by from Like others, it separated and is ususeable I wanted this to work. I'm a big Kiehl's user. Bought this at an airport. When I tried the sample, it was also separated, and the sales clerk said that you just have to shake it a little to mix. Did that, liked the way it looked on my skin, and bought it. My tube was also separated and lots of fluid seeped out. What is left is in chunks and unuseable. Shouldn't have bought it. Will try another product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I don’t think this did anything Added this to my daily regime- didn’t notice a difference. I love the way my skin felt velvety immediately after use, but it didn’t last and I didn’t actually see any skin improvements.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from watery formula I enjoyed the texture on my face but not the messy separation. It seems like too much work is involved to get this product to get to the consistency that it should have. I bought it at Nordstrom, so I dont know if they got a bad batch. I wish I could return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SEPARATING PRODUCT I love this product, and the effect it has on my skin, so even with the fact that after you open the product for the first time, in roughly 1-2 week, it separates in the container and is very difficult to massage back together, I will continue to use it. I do find that once it separates, it does not go on as smooth.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product bad packaging Th product works great, skin instantly aprears more mat, satiny and less porous. The packing however is awful. Once it’s less than full it is really hard to squeeze the content out. I believe it’s a design flaw, the opening is very small but the cap very wide which traps the large amount of the product, and the tube itself is hard so it fills back up with air. Once you get to push the content up the tube it shoots out on to the sink, or the mirror, or anywhere but where you want it to. Please offer a different size in another package and I’ll happily buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite ever I bought it &used it till finish. I don't have problems like the other. It is fine with me...and last week I went to south coast plaza to reorder again but they are out of stock...now I have to wait....I think the other lady said, maybe she is right...if u put some where too hot and not in the cool place...I say maybe....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from unusable My first experience with this was fantastic. It gave me a nice even skin tone with a matte finish. So I ordered a couple of additional bottles but the mixture separated and is completely unusable...no matter how much I shake the bottle. I recommend you use immediately and don’t buy extra. Those will end up in the trash.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Is this being reformulated? I received two samples at a store. I opened the first sample and water poured out. I thought maybe that was the product and was disappointed I had wasted it by not knowing it was a clear liquid. Then I realized there was something more in the little package. So, I grabbed the second sample and squeezed and rolled it and mixed it around for a number of minutes before opening. Water poured out again, but i was ready for it. I managed to mix the cream and water together a bit between my hands and use it. Feels great. Goes on smooth. Would love to buy this, if they can fix the separation issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Separation of product contents I would give this product 4 stars after initial purchase. It smooths my skin and evened out my tones so I needed no further makeup. However, the product separated after a few weeks and is a bit of a mess. I have tried to vigorously shake it to recombine its contents, but this was ineffective. I ended up wasting quite a bit of the small bottle. I liked this product very much but wish it was less of a mess.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bummer! I absolutely love how this product feels when i put it on. My skin is instantly so smooth without feeling greasy. Unfortunately, i hardly ever use it anymore because of the mess it makes coming out of the bottle. The formulation is great besides this separation that occurs. I thought it was maybe just a bad bottle but im seeing orher reviews with the same issue. Ill keep using it and cleaning up the mess till its gone, but sadly i wont be purchasing again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product if you get a good one that doesn't separate I had the same separating problem as so many other reviewers have noted. I brought it back to the store and they replaced it (they tested it in the store first). The replacement has been fine. I really like this product - it creates a silky base for makeup and seems to "blur" lines. I do shake it before using, but that was not enough for the first bottle, it was terrible. So if you get it in store, try it first. It's a shame they can't figure this out and fix it. Obviously it's a problem that so many are having.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never been so disappointed with Kiehl's! Bought the product and loved using it at the beginning. It really makes putting on make up so much easier. However, not after long, the texture of the product changed. No matter how hard I shook it before opening it, water just kept coming out when I opened it. After a couple times, I just gave up. Totally not worth the money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Water and cream separates What happened to this product? Very disappointing. At first a clear liquid comes out then a cream. I dont thinks that's how it should work. Would my skin get irritated?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't live without this product. I received a sample of this product awhile back and I've been hooked ever since. The selling point for me is when I put it on, and my husband thought I already put foundation on. It immediately smoothes and evens out your complexion and makes your face feels soft. I have pretty blotchy and uneven skin tone, so this is a win for me. In the summer when a bit of a tan evens out my color, I just use this and skip foundation completely. Here are my tips: Apply it OVER moisturizer after letting it dry for few minutes. Apply it BEFORE your foundation. Don't keep it anywhere warm/hot- I think that is where people are having it separate. I have NEVER that issue and I am on my 5th or 6th bottle. It is kept in my makeup bag, which is next to a window in my bathroom, which stays rather cool. As someone with sensitive, uneven, acne-prone skin, this product has been fantastic for me. I will continue to buy it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissapointed Hi. I used this on my you tube channel and instagram and the product was dry and coming put in like pieces. Dry clumps if u will. Twice. :( I wanted it to work 100%! I love your brand and I'm so sad this happened ! It's too expensive to purchase again when I've had 2 fails with it. I'd love to try again one day. I'm so sorry. Maybe when I have the extra money I'll do another you tube review about your products. Or maybe if i find a bundle cheap somewhere. I wish u well. :) thank u!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from First time I've been seriously disappointed in a Kiehl's product I tried a sample of micro-blur and liked it so I ordered it. Not long after I started using it the product separated. I've tried shaking it, storing it upside down, shaking it again. Nothing works. I got it out of the vanity cabinet again today, shook it up a lot and tried again. I hate to throw away skincare products I've paid good money for, but this one is going in the trash. I have liked or loved all the other Kiehl's products I've had over the years so I guess they're entitled to one failure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Product!!! I had received a sample of this stuff in one of my last orders. The second I put it on, I raced to my phone to buy a bottle. It’s amazing! It made my skin feel so soft and smooth! I read the reviews and some people were saying that the lotion separates, I did not and have not had that problem! It’s an orangey color and at first I thought- what the heck, but I have never been more happy with a facial product! I wish it came in a larger bottle, and this brand is a little expensive for my teacher wallet, but this is my favorite skin care line and the prices haven’t stopped me for buying many items! Enjoy, again I highly, highly recommend this product if you are looking for something to smooth out your skin, minimize pores and have a smooth finishing feeling!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Watery & Separating I purchased this item and was excited to use it but it comes out watery and separated. I even tried shaking it. Very dissapointed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So disappointed! I like many others, it seems, have had the problem with this product separating. I am big Kiehl's fan and was sad that I could really not even try this product. I tried to shake it and use it but it really isn't viable. I guess I should have taken it back to where I purchased it but we were in the middle of relocating to the UK.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was eager to use this product because of it's claim to be a treatment product as well as a cosmetic product. I liked the texture of this product when I tried it initially. However I, too, had trouble with the product separating. After unexpectedly losing a good quantity of clear liquid from the product, I tried shaking the product well. The liquids and solids of the product were separated, and it was not usable. I took it back to my local store, and it was gladly exchanged, I had the same problem again. Disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT WHAT I EXPECT I BOUTH THIS PRODUCT, AND ITS WEAR BECAUSE IT COMES OUT WATER FIRST AND THEN THE PRODUCT, I USE IT ANYWAY ONCE AND NOT MORE BECAUSE ALL THE WATER SEEMS LIKE THE PRODUCT WAS EXPIRED AND I DIDNT FEEL CONFURTABLE USING IT

Rated 1 out of 5 by from watery I bought this Micro-Blur Skin perfector and was excited to use it, I have had the same problem as some others. It comes out all watery and separated. I have tried shaking it up, but still comes out all watery. I have not tried it on my face yet, because of the consistency. I love Kiel's products, but not sure about this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Read the reviews and shook it forever I read the reviews and thought if I shuck the container long enough I wouldn't have the issues that everyone else was having. I was so disappointed that after shaking for a good minute, I still had water come out And when I finally got the product to come out, it was very separated. Very disappointed in this purchase. I don't even know how it works because I couldn't put it on my face.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Separated mess I had the same messy separation problem better described by another reviewer. A great deal of clear liquid comes from the bottle even after shaking and trying to hold the bottle right side up or upside down. I really loved this product as a sample and still find it superior to similar pore-refining primers. I would love 30 packets of sample in lieu of this bottle! I lost half the net weight down the drain as gobs of liquid poured out before the product in the few times I have gone to use it. I'm afraid the product might dry out once all of this component has run out and it will become less effective; I'm going to keep using it and see.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from OLD LADY SMELL This Micro Blur product works fabulously! Terrific product....gentle, lightweight, does not cause breakouts, or leave skin too dry or oily at the end of the day. The only problem is: The horrid OLD LADY SMELL!! I nor my husband, can stomach the fragrance of this product, and therefore, I will not be purchasing a full size. So disappointed because I adore the feel and efficacy of this product... :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product ever invented I started using Kiehl´s products two years ago and I do follow full regiment as recommended for my skin type which is very oily skin with large pores and problematic skin. Today, my skin is close to but not necessarily dry skin and my pores have diminished dramatically. I started using micro blur when it was first came out and I am totally independent on this product, I use a thin layer after my daily skin care routine every morning and it was as if it as meant to make for me. I have never used foundation but with micro blur, it's like using a healthy foundation. My skin feel smooth and fresh all day long, my pores are hardly noticeable. Using Kiehl´s products makes my skin hydrated and I now have a healthy glow. Thank you very much Kiehl´s for making me feel beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy grail! but needs better packaging This primer is great for evening about complexion, minimizing pores, and seamlessly blurring all your products/make up together. It has a way of really blending into the skin instead of just sitting on top of the skin as a filmy pore filler like many other primers do. I haven't noticed any major difference in texture improvements since I started using this product 6 months ago, but I think it has made subtle long term differences in evening my skin out. Overall, the value is good; other primers tend to be either at a higher price point for 1oz. or slightly cheaper for much less product (without having the same skincare benefits). I think it will absolutely always be the go-to primer I will reach for. The only thing I will critique is that it needs better packaging. It becomes very difficult to use once I get to the last quarter of product. The plastic is too thick to easily be able to push out and I end of having to cut off the top to get the rest out (which doesn't keep the product fresh). Kiehl's please make plastic thinner, with a less bulky cap, and with maybe a way to see how much product you've used on the side. All and all it's a must have!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's okay There is nothing wrong with the product but after reading all the amazing reviews, I was expecting more. It's a great primer -- definitely helps smooth out skin texture and blur pores -- but that's all it is. Didn't notice any change over time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product I use from this company Let me start by saying, I have MANY products by Kiehls and I really do love the products. THIS Micro-Blur Skin Perfector though, is my favorite. It does not make my face oily, it smoothes it out (texture and appearance), and I can use it under my powder and not really need foundation/BB cream. I don't usually wear a lot of makeup anyway so this does exactly what I want it to do, even out skin tone. I love the feel of my skin the rest of the day, like silk! I will be re-purchasing probably every 2 months. I just wish it came in a bigger bootle! Long term effects - unsure since I use so many of their products together Im not sure which is doing which, but I love my skin because of it all.
