  • "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 primer is great, but the price is what kills me. For the regular bottle is a whopping $42. I dont pay that much for my foundation honestly. I like the fact that it comes in a spray, but i almost wish it came as an aerosol to make the application quick and easy.

I like this primer because it is both smoothing and hydrating! It feels and settles in skin very nicely. It is a natural finish. I haven’t noticed if it makes my makeup last longer. I would recommend this to others.

I got this as a sample in my Sephora Play box.
At first not sure what to expect from it, I had never heard of it before.
I love the idea that it is a Primer + Moisturizer In 1!  it saves time, rather to apply moisturizer and then primer. and instead of buying and having multiple products on the counter. i love that is is Non-greasy, Quick-dry Formula.

I was a little nervous about trying this primer bc I have very oily skin but it gave just the right amount of moisture without over doing it and my makeup looked and felt great over this. I have already repurchased and bought a back up

I love this! My makeup routine is pretty minimal, so having a primer + moisturizer in one is awesome! Not only is it super convenient, it also works really well. It goes on light, but actually works to smooth my skin and minimize pores. With the setting spray, it lasts all day!

This primer is pure magick. I don’t know how I lived so long without it. It can make even the worst foundations, somehow tolerable. This paired with the smashbox 15 HR studio skin foundation is the nost perfect, flattering combination

If I could give this product 6 starts I would! I love love love this primer. I have now repurchased this 6 times. I use it every single day even if I’m not applying make up. It is a primer and moisturizer all in one so it applies beautiful and just looks and feels incredible.

So I got this product in a travel-size probably about a month ago and I'm about halfway through it and so far so good. I think it speaks for itself in the title and I will agree it is very cool that it serves as both a moisturizer and a face primer in one. It really does what it says! At least on my skin personally it worked very well, I was impressed. I really love the idea of the two in one product especially 4 things like traveling because every little thing counts! I know all my products definitely add up! It's not like anything magical I have other primers that are similar to it that don't say moisturizer and primer, but they have the same consistency and for the most part did the same thing which is what they're supposed to do. It could be compared to Too Faced RX hangover primer or even men's Nivea shave balm in sensitive, I don't know if anyone's ever tried any of those but it for the most part feels like a moisturizer when you get it out of the container and once applied to the skin becomes more of a primer or a base for your face to make it as smooth as possible before makeup application. If you have any primers that have a thinner consistency to them almost like lotion kind of on liquidy side, that's what it's comparable to when you first pump it out of the container. It seems to almost have a coconut smell it's a very very fresh smell, nothing overwhelming very light once you apply it to your face it does feel a little bit tacky at first just until it dries and it seems to do a pretty good job holding the makeup on your face, I know for me my makeup lasted all day plus some. I would purchase it again definitely.

I absolutely love this product. I have very dry skin and this hydrates me while it primes. I use it on top of my moisturizer for extra hydration. I would say this isn’t a super heavy duty primer so I don’t recommend for more glam looks, but it’s perfect for everyday use.
