            It worked well, but didn't store well at all
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought a 2 gallon Kilz 2 All purpose primer. It worked well on my walls and ceiling before I painted. I put it in my garage in the original container for storage. I just got it out 5 months later and it's separated and half solid. It will not mix together. I'm not happy at all.

              Smells Be Gone
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Oh my goodness a beautiful coat of this under the paint and it weird smell that’s been going on in my sons room for years is gone. The smell was there when we bought the place and now it’s actually gone! I also put it on the c the floor before we leave the carpet. I feel secure that it will go on for years of beautiful smells, even in a boy room.

                  This is the best primer to use to cover stains. Recently had a basement fixed for leaks and wanted to cover up the water stains. Two coats later and most of the stains are gone. What a difference!

                  Wish I would have looked at the reviews better
                  Most of the reviews for this are “paid” so of course they would recommend it. I didn’t notice that until AFTER I bought this primer unfortunately. I put 3 coats on my wall, and it’s not covering at all. I’m still going to have to do 2-3 paints of my paint so I’m not sure what the point of this primer was? Unfortunately I wouldn’t recommend this, unless you want to do 5-6 coats while painting, but I’m not sure who would want to do that.

                  Response from BehrMar 12, 2024
                  Hi NCpaint, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the primer did not cover as expected. I can understand your disappointment. Typically, the primer only requires one coat, and it is not designed to cover completely, but it is sealing the surface. Once your topcoat is applied, it will help achieve an even finish is fewer coats. We appreciate your feedback, and if you need further assistance, please reach out to us directly. Our Customer Care team is happy to help! -Giovanna Behr

                    This primer did the impossible!
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought a house with the worst interior paint job ever! Most of the walls were dark purple, and all kinds of crazy graffiti "art". We thought it would take 10 coats to fix, but it only took one good coat and one light coat of Kilz primer to do the job! Very, very impressed with this product!!!
