|I'll have mine in English, thank you very much.|
Now from what I understand, this primer and its counterpart, the Face It Moisture Fitting Primer are supposed to be in gel form. However, the Velvet Skin Primer is a tad runny - to the point that it's almost watery.
|Clear, gel form? Clear, alright.|
It's lightweight, non-sticky, and is easily absorbed by the skin. It has a nice cooling sensation once applied, and as you spread it out, it leaves the skin with a lovely, dewy glow.
It does a fine job of prepping the skin, smoothing fine lines, and keeping your makeup intact for hours. Given my sensitive skin and the primer's silica content, I had no adverse reaction to this product - no itchiness, breakouts, or anything of that sort. Best of all, this product smells really, really nice.

The Face It Velvet Skin Primer retails for 14900 Korean Won - that's around Php570 when converted. I'm not sure how it's priced locally because the last time I went to The Face Shop branch in Festival Mall, they didn't have this in stock.
What I love:
Hygienic, sturdy packaging
Easily absorbed by the skin
Conceals fine lines, smoothens skin
No adverse reactions when used (i.e. breakouts, itchiness)
What you might not like:
It contains silica and silica dimethyl silylate - take caution if you're allergic to silicon.
Now I know you're curious about the Mango Seed thing. It's a new product line released last Autumn, with Seohyun and EXO-K as its endorsers. I haven't opened 'em yet, but expect me to share the experience once I've given that baby a try. :)
