  • "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

I purchased this last winter when my skin was dryer than the Sahara Desert. my skin was really flakey and i couldn’t get anything to stick or help moisturize and this did the trick!! so moisturizing and great for anyone who has dry skin!

Since My skin is on the dryer side I decided to try this. It makes your face feels so moisturized and smooth. The only downfall I have with this is that it doesn’t hide pores. Nonetheless it’s a great primer

An AMAZING 2+1 primer. If you have dry skin THIS is most definitely the primer for you. It’s so hydrating and light. It’s definitely not oily or greasy. It really makes your skin look nice and smooth.

This primer is a dream! I have tried many primers from smashbox and other brands, high end and low end. It moisturizes my dry skin and keeps my foundation on and looking flawless throughout the day!

BEST PRIMER EVER IF YOU HAVE DRY SKIN! Worked amazing to hydrate my skin before foundation and made my skin look hydrated and fresh. Will continue to repurchase and is a fair price for being a moisturizer and primer in one product!

Oh my goodness I love this product. It is perfect for my dry skin and trust me my skin can be terribly dry. I love the packaging and I’m a sucker for that. The glass makes it feel very lux which I love. Also it isn’t too spendy.

This is probably my holy grail of primers. It makes me feel better about my skin care because of the moisturizing aspect. My makeup stays on and my skin feels good. It’s a great product for sure.

This primer is also a moisturizer so it’s a quick step to throw on before foundation. It helps my makeup apply very smoothly and I feel that it helped my makeup last longer. Definitely recommend!

I have really dry skin and I often have trouble making soft matte formulas work for me. This primer is a great step in my process to really hydrate my skin before makeup application. I apply it after my moisturizer and notice my skin is plumper and brighter! I don’t think it really “primes” my skin, though, so I have to use a smoothing primer like the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer to blur my pores and prolong the wear of my makeup.
