  • "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

This is my holy grail primer! It saves me so much time and works flawlessly. I have oily skin so I’m always nervous about primers but so far I’ve had zero complaints!

I love the way this works as a moisturizer and a primer at the same time. I can use less products and get the same even base and hydration. It pumps out really nicely too, you don’t accidentally squirt out too much product, which means you don’t waste anything. It’s overall a good product.

Really love this product it's great for my dry skin. It's very light and only requires a pea size amount to cover my whole face dries quickly and holds make up well.

Because of the wintry weather and a shift to dry/dehydrated skin, I recently noticed my HG foundation was not performing well, especially while building it up to full coverage; I was seeing the cakey, aged, tired, look. I thought needed a winter foundation with more hydration. I did not consider switching primers at first since mine had plenty of slip and I thought enough moisture. Looking though reviews and talking to others in my online makeup groups, a few options came up, this was one of them. I had a sample at home and tried it on a work morning. I put the primer on directly following my skincare, it applied beautifully and absorbed well. I applied a small amount of foundation to see how it would perform, and then I mixed a little of both on the back of my hand and started to build it up. My face looked flawless! This stuff went on so well, smoothed fine lines under my eyes and on other areas of my face, helped me build my foundation with less product and blended out perfectly. The Primerizer gave me the extra bump in moisture I needed without breaking me out or causing me to look greasy. My skin had a nice natural glow. One of the best Primer *

I love love love this primer! It’s a 2in 1 because it also moisturizes! It’s a little expensive but the bottle lasts me several months I think about three month! So yea a little goes a long way! It doesn’t make your face sticky and it just feels nice! Also has hyaluronic acid in it which is great! My makeup doesn’t set into my smile line :)

I love this! I was unsure, but the texture just blends into my skin. It makes my foundation apply seamlessly and makes my winter-dry skin feel plump. Plus it smells great!

It’s a great product. My skin get a but dry in the Winter só it works fine but I do have to be careful not to use in my t zone when my skin is well moisturized because It will be too greasy after a few hours.

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.
