  • "I've been looking for a morning moisturizer for months. I tried a few others and while still on the hunt, I was torn between this and the Too Faced Hangover Primer. I decided to go with Glossier because it was cheaper and for more product. I am so happy I did. It is SO moisturizing and I don't even feel like I need to use my tinted moisturizer on top. This might be my HG, ride or die, moisturizer. I love it SO much and it's so affordable. " in 117 reviews

I never really worried about what kind of moisturizer I used as long it left my face feeling moisturized and soft but when I got my hands on the glossier priming moisturizer, I realized I would never be able to purchase another brand again. I got this in the glossier phase because I needed a new cleanser and ended up with a new moisturizer as well, but I don't regret the purchase! It leaves my face feeling so soft afterwards and my makeup just glides on effortlessly without an extra layer of primer on top of my skin. When I first put it on, I thought it wasn't hydrating enough and I would end up with dry patches on my cheeks and nose but I was surprised to find no patches. The only complaint I have is the scent it has. I'm not sure how to describe it but it's not bad to the point where I'm uncomfortable using it.

Love this moisturizer! I have normal to slightly oily skin with some dry patches around my chin, in case anyone is wondering. I've been using this moisturizer every day for the past two months and I don't think I could ever stop. It is very hydrating and soaks into my skin immediately. It has a nice light texture and a little bit goes a long way. I've noticed that if I apply too much, it can look and feel a bit greasy, but when I apply a pea-sized amount, its PERFECT. My skin is instantly calmed from any redness I may have, and my pore appear smaller. It also does live up to the claim that it has a nice velvety finish, and it looks beautiful even on my no-makeup days. It is important to note that this product does contain a form of Retinol (retinyl palmitate), so if your skin is sensitive to retinol, steer clear of this. However, this form of retinol is very safe and highly effective, and is even used in some sunscreens, so you shouldn't worry about applying this in the daytime, as it won't make your skin more susceptible to burn, but you should still wear a daily SPF (I use the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Defense). I am seriously so in love with this moisturizer, and have stopped using moisturizing primers underneath my foundation. This product is the bomb!

I received this as a sample from Glossier. I was not dissatisfied but also not impressed. It goes on smooth and did not leave my skin feeling greasy. Although, my face did not seem super moisturized. I honestly didn’t notice a difference with my skin. Nothing to complain about but nothing to rave about. just meh.

Priming- it goes on smooth before makeup application. However, I also did not notice my makeup lasting longer than a normal day. Did not appear to minimize pores either.

This is a nice basic moisturizer. I have tried it twice now, in separate samples that came with my Glossier order. I like the simple packaging, and the lightweight, silky texture of the moisturizer is lovely. It does ostensibly create a good base for makeup, but I wouldn’t really consider it a primer. It doesn’t do anything for oil on my t zone or minimize pores. As I have to put spf on top of it anyways, the finish of the sunscreen is more important. An actual primer would go on top of the sunscreen, but I rarely ever use one. I definitely will not purchase this, certainly not for $22, unless they add sunscreen to it. With a 3-year-old and a FT job, I have a very limited amount of time to get ready in the morning, I would much prefer to use a sunscreen with moisturizing properties vs adding a nice but one note product to my routine. Also, I have combo skin and it feels like overkill to add a moisturizer on top of my serums that leave my skin pretty dewy. It’s not bad, it just seems superfluous.

I didn't think that I would really like this moisturizer.  But holy cow!  I sure do!  This is a light moisturizer that really packs a punch!  I don't use it as a primer - I use it strictly as my daytime moisturizer under my makeup.  This totally hydrates my very dry skin without making it feel oily, and it's not overly expensive.  I don't think this will do it for me in the NY winter though.

Review for: Priming Moisturizer more...
I’ve been using this priming moisturizer for a few months. I have combo/oily skin, and live in a humid climate. I’ve always had a good experience with Glossier skincare, so I decided to give this a try. It’s texture feels just like a lotion. It doesn’t have much scent, which I like. It also hasn’t made me break out. The only thing I’m not too fond of is that it never seems to dry down? It could be my skin type, but it seems like the moisturizer sits on the skin’s surface, and doesn’t melt into the skin. A little goes a long way, so I try to be very conservative with it (especially since I’m oily); it still leaves that tacky feeling on my skin for at least an hour after application. I use this under matte foundation, and the tacky/sticky feeling doesn’t rly leave. I like it, but maybe it’s just not working for my skin in the summer right now.

This is probably my least favorite Glossier product... It’s just really “meh” to me. Nothing special, a little tacky. It was sort of disappointing because I love the rest of their products I’ve tried so much, but this didn’t do it for me. I prefer the rich version, which is weird for me to say, since I typically prefer lighter moisturizers. I’ll finish the tube, but won’t repurchase!

I love this product though I would personally like to use this as a moisturizing primer on top of a good moisturizer since I have pretty sensitive/dry skin and eczema. I found that it was a bit tacky which again is perfect for priming and it does minimize the appearance of any wrinkles, fine lines or pores on your skin. It is a quite a thin formula with an almost clean, soapy smell.

I was very surprised by this product. I've been using the same moisturizer since high school and got a free sample of this during my last visit at Glossier. It was really moisturizing and very thin, which I really liked. It didn't feel like I had caked anything on my face. I'm definitely considering buying a full size when I run out of my current moisturizer.

I had visited the Glossier store in New York City and completely splurged on almost every single porduct possible.
This priming moisturizer is amazing
It's not oily or sticky or anything
It doesn't have a horrible smell like most primers I have come across
It's like a normal moisturizer lotion
There's an amazing amount as well and the packaging is aestheticly pleasing
