I too was skeptical at first, but this product is outstanding and I'm about to buy my 2nd bottle! It works well for under masks and hydrates well. My skin has gotten more dry recently. They say not to use this alone or under makeup but I do and it's NOT sticky. I've also spritzed it over makeup! Just one or two squirts is all you need and about 6 inches from your face! Feels super refreshing & my skin seems to notice! It feels more hydrated and radiant. I use this year round.

I got a mini sample of this from Sephora. After checking out the ingredients and the smell, feel, etc, I went ahead and sprayed liberally on clean, dry skin and left it on all night. Surprisingly woke up to moist, glowing, happy skin. Finally ended up purchasing full size. Money well spent. Adding moisture to dry skin before using occlusive products such as heavy creams, oil or masks helps to seal the moisture in and achieve best results, this product does just that.

I love how I makes my face feel. I let makes my skin feel soft and smooth like a baby's bottom. 2nd.... I put this before my makeup and it makes my foundation very easy to apply and it looks better. I give this Item a 5 out of 5!:) I hope you try it and find out other reasons why it's the best;)

I normally don't write reviews, but in this case, I had to. The consistency is smooth and does a really good job of priming my face for masks. It keeps my charcoal masks from drying out, which I liked since they tend to dry super unevenly

I got mine at Macy's with my Plenti points, so it wasn't super pricey, but if I was buying it without any promotions, I probably would have been a bit iffy. The packaging was sleek and simple and the bottle was easy to use.

Firstly, I am a tremendous fan of Origins. Ever since I started using products from this brand 7 years ago, my skin has been completely transformed, so when they came out with this mask primer I was excited. I wondered if it would really make a difference in how my masks performed. I found that it performed really well with the Origins Charcoal mask, but I've not seen the same effects with other masks. Sadly, this is not a product I'll be repurchasing.

A skin primer .... yes I thought pointless and a waste of money too. I received a sample of this in my Sephora PLAY monthly box subscription and used it before applying the origins charcoal mask that also came with it and I must say my face has never been as soft after one use. It really did make the mask cling to my skin and work better than when I used it without it. I don't know if I'll purchase the bottle but I'm tempted a little goes along way.

This is a really great product if you have a mask that you don't want to use up too fast. My glamglow treatment was way too expensive so I'm trying to make it last as long as possible. Spraying this on beforehand has made it so much more spreadable, and therefore, i use less of the product. I'm not sure if it really optimizes or boosts the skin, but i will definitely be purchasing this product in the future because it helps me save expensive masks!

This is a fairly new product on the market, and there is not really another quite like it. You just put it before any non peel-off mask, and it helps provide smoother application and is easy to remove. I purchased mine from an Origins store with a coupon. I like to use it before the Clear Improvement mask, because it does not feel as thick and glides on and off smoothly. It is a good price for the size because you only need a little each time.

I was really skeptical about this product, but I really enjoyed it. This basically functions as a mild toner before application of a face mask or other skincare. I Think that its good that this type of product does not have a fragrance. This feels refreshing, gives you a bit of moisture, & nicely preps your skin. My mask went on smoothly & afterwards my skin didn't feel tight or dry. Is this product a necessity? No, but I really enjoyed it!

This is a very interesting concept. I definitely liked the way my skin felt and I suppose I could tell myself it felt "primed" for masking. I certainly don't have a reason to NOT like it. But, overall, I'm just not sure it is actually doing something. I THINK I felt like somehow one of my moisturizing masks worked a little better but that could totally be in my head. Honestly, not a "must have" product. But bonus point for ingenuity.

I got this product in my May Sephora Play! Box and was only able to try it one time because the sample was so small. Has anyone been able to try it out multiple times and seen a difference in their masking experience? I love the Origins brand and would love to know if this product is worth it or not!

I want to try this with the overnight drink up intensive mask, but my skin is really sensitive and I'm scared to add to may products to it and leave it over night. Has anyone else tired it with this mask?

Does this primer work even for masks that are meant to soak up oil and dry out acne?

Does anyone notice a difference while using this? I've only used it once and it was with their charcoal mask.
