  • "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 have oily skin and need to moisturize before applying makeup because otherwise I end up overly greasy. This is a great option, especially when my skin is drier (yes, oily skin gets dry!). It cuts down on the layers of skincare I need to do before applying makeup and makes things much easier. It's expensive, but I got it on sale (Ulta has great sales on Smashbox) and it's lasted forever for me!

I have oily skin typically and normal to dry in the winter...i can use this primer all year round. Im usually not a huge smashbox fan but this primer is my holy grail. Its hard for me to use anything else.

I love this primer! I have dry skin so this primer is everything to me! It gives me the moisture I need and also primes my face perfectly! I couldn’t be happier with this primer!

This primer is super nice for dry skin! It's awesome in my areas that could use a little bit of moisture. It goes on smooth and it's very lightweight. Foundation goes on top of it easily and it looks flawless everytime. Doesn't fill in pore very well though so if that is what you're looking for try the pore minimizing primer!

My face is super dry especially after i wash my face, so i’ve been trying a lot of different hydrating products and they don’t work as well as this primer/moisturizer. i use this not only for a primer before makeup, i use it for a moisturizer. It is so soft and creamy feeling and honestly it’s so silky feeling which i love.

LOVE this. I use it as a primer more than a moisturizer- it makes me skin tacky to really grip my foundation. On my nose and around my eyes, I still use a pore/line filling primer. This has been great!

I really enjoy this primer. I do use a moisturizer with this product, however, because I have extremely dry skin. It is very easy to apply and blend and feels very hydrating and refreshing on the skin

Absolutely love this product. It is light and does a great job at improving the appearance of my skin during the winter when I’m prone to dryness. It’s definitely a must try!

Super lightweight primer, which I love. My makeup applied beautifully on top of it and lasted throughout the day. The packing is perfect. I love the little pump and it's a decent priced high end primer. I would buy again for sure!
