I want to love this product because I really feel like it’s hydrating but I have a really hard time with it. Sometimes I feel like no matter how much I wait when I put my foundation it just can’t settle properly. I feel like all my make up is just going to slide off lol I just feel like it’s too “silicony” for me...if you guys know what I mean
This is the best store bought brand hydrating face primer. It works great for my normal to combination skin. I use it after moisturizing and it preps my skin for the day. Keeping me from getting flaky and dry. Great value and price point. I will continue to buy this for as long as they make it. I would cry if they quit carrying it.
My opinion of this product is that it is very oily and has a siliconey feel to it. I was looking for a kind of lotiony primer but i just found this elf one and decided to stick with it. So if you do not like oily or silicone primer then i would not recommend this primer. But it was a fairly sized product and for size wise i like it.

I really only use this product when I run out of my benefit primer. I have combination skin so it was my mistake using a hydrating primer, however, I’ve used this whole my skin was dry because I need hydration, and literally all of my foundation was melting off after a few hours. This did not help makeup stick for me, whatsoever.
Let me just start by saying I'm new to makeup. So when I was looking for face primers I didn't know what to look for. This primer feels very oily and the smell isn't that pleasing. The application feels like it doesn't take and when I apply my makeup it looks very caked on as if it's not blending properly
This primer is my favorite hydrating drug store primer. It leaves my skin looking all natural and feels very light. It makes my makeup last longer throughout the day and blends right into my skin. I would buy this product over and over again. You should definitely try it and see how it works for you
This claims to be hydrating but it is not. It has a silicone base and it just makes your make up slip around I would not recommend this to anyone and less you have oily skin. Not worth it when you can get a better primer from a different drug store company that works better than the stars this claims to be hydrating but it is not. It has a silicone base and it just makes your make up slip around I would not recommend this to anyone unless you have oily skin. Not worth it when you can get a better primer from a different drug store company that works better than this does.
I love elf and am never usually disappointed by anything they put out but I've been using it for a month now and honestly cannot tell if this primer actually does anything for me or not. It has a pump, which I like for easy dispensing but I feel like you should shake it around some first becausee its supposed to be hydrating but it just feels really oily/greasy. Also, it stinks like some sort of plastic-y smell. It was pretty affordable and it seems to be lasting me but it's not tacky like I'm looking for. Will continue to use and see if I notice any real difference or not.

I love this product! For someone who has combination skin that can change daily with the weather this is great! It keeps me hydrated in the winter when my skin gets flaky dry but also doesn’t leave me shiny in the summer time when I don’t need too much extra moisture
