  • "this is a good primer for all types of skin. i have very oily skin and it still is good for under my makeup or on it's own on no makeup days. only down fall is it doesn't do anything for my pores so i have to go in for another primer in my t zone but still good for what it claims although it is a bit pricey." in 54 reviews
  • "very watery texture so it feels light on the skin. absorbs really quickly and makeup application is smooth. i put on a lot of moisturizer before priming so i’m not sure if this is hydrating my skin but it isn’t leaving any dry patches. i got this as a sample and may repurchase when it runs out." in 50 reviews

Can't say enough good things about this. It's so moisturizing and feels nice on my skin. A little goes a long way and it makes makeup feel good on my skin.

I used this with my sunscreen when doing my make up. It primes while adding just enough moisturizer. My make last all day and does not get oily but have a natural glow to my make up.

this product is amazing because it's a 2 in 1. The texture is nice, it has a wet feel. It's easy to use. I find it in Sephora or Ulta or any department stores. You don't need to buy a moisturizer, this product saves you money. It doesn't break me out and I have acne prone skin. I highly recommend this.

I received this for free in a VoxBox and I love using it as my first step in my makeup routine. It’s lightweight and hydrating. The one this is I feel as though I need more than the recommended one to two drops. Therefore, I’ve started to use my other moisturizer with it.

This primer sets a good base for my oily skin yet dry eye areas. I could apply my makeup so smooth is a natural finish. Might be to creamy for those with oily skin but depends the amount you use.

This is my favorite primer that I have ever used. It’s winter most of the year where I live and my skin gets so dry even with moisturizer. This fills my pores hides my cracks and smooths my lines. My skin looks better than it ever has with this product. I’ll be purchasing another one I’m in love. I haven’t found a foundation I didn’t love it with and I use a different one every day.

Love, I use it as a moisturizer most days when I’m wearing makeup. If I’m not wearing makeup I still wear it but as a primer to fill my pores. I notice a difference with my skin, in someone who didn’t believe in moisturizer but you definitely notice a difference!

Great primer! Helped with making my makeup last all day. I have dry skin though, and it didn’t help with my dryness, but otherwise, it’s an amazing primer!
