This product is hydrating and does not feel greasy. It is great to use for really targeting those dry patches that are still there after moisturizing. It helps add a little extra boost before applying makeup. It is very easy to use and absorbs pretty quickly. I don't know that it is the most essential product to own, but it is cool and does what it says.

I get a beautiful foundation finish with this, and find out equally nice to go more natural with just a buff of translucent powder and spot concealer. It has a pleasant floral smell and interesting cooling feel when rubbed on. Easy to use too much and wind up greasy looking after a couple hours though, but I cut back and it was great. Will repurchase.

This product gives a really fresh look. It cools down your skin and makes your skin feel so clean. Good for any skin type and it really hydrates your skin. Helps to make your foundation look clean and smooth.

OMG !! It’s funny because the packaging looks like deodorant lol but it is amazing! Super easy to use . Helps smooth and blur minimally and makes the makeup go on smoothly. Would suggest it for someone who’s more normal to dry .

This is such a great dupe for the MILK makeup Cooling Water stick! Whenever my skin is feeling extra tight and dry I swipe this all around my face and then pat it in with my fingers. It is very cooling and hydrating and just perfect for prepping the skin for makeup. Highly recommend if your skin is dry!

It was just an ok primer. It wasn’t my favorite and made my greasy and oily. It doesn’t offer any spf. Pros is it is affordable. Come is it didn’t work with my skin type.

I have combination skin and this stuff works great on it! It’s not expensive at all but at the same time you don’t get a lot of product with it. It’s very easy to put on

I like that it's in a stick form so I dont have to waste alot of product putting it on with my hand. You can use your fingers to rub it in or leave it on like that. Its hydrating and smells nice. I have combination skins I use this on certain areas of dryness. It's a good product and affordable

I loved this product. It made my skin very soft and I found that my makeup went on easier and more smooth. Such a small amount of product in the container though.

Is this for all over the face or is it went for dry spots only? Also, can this replace the hydrating primer?
