  • "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

Loved this primer. It absorbed into the skin nicely. This is defiantly more for combo/oily skin. Would still recommend using your normal moisturizer along with this product

I wanted to get this small bottle to give it a try. I am so excited to report that I am very very pleased and will be purchasing a larger bottle after I run out. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The most amazing hydrating primer to just use for everyday. Yes, I have oily skin but I appreciate hydrating primers. This is probably my favorite hydrating primer of all time.

I love using this primer along with the primer water. It feels so nice on my skin especially when it feels dry. It's like another moisturizer but it also makes my makeup last!

I definitely wouldn’t replace my moisturizer with this, but it’s a wonderful primer for dry skin. I use this underneath another silicon primer to keep my skin hydrated all day long.

My new go-to primer! I was scared this would feel greasy or thick, but it is so lightweight and hydrating. It literally feels like water, but with lasting hydration for your skin. I tried this primer because my usual holy grail, Benefit Porefessional, tends to pill a bit with matte foundations. I snagged YSL's All Hours Foundation and not only was it a bit drying, but it doesn't seem to play well with silicone based primers. YSL All Hours foundation + this primer = match made in heaven. My make up goes on smoothly over this primer and lasts all day.
