  • "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 wasn't expecting to love this as much as I do! I wouldn't use this as a moisturizer on its own but as a moisturizing primer it is fantastic. It feels great going on the skin and leaves a nice tacky feeling for foundation to stick to. My foundations, concealers, powders, apply beautifully on top and stay all day! Love it.

HOLY GRAIL MAKEUP PRODUCT! I have the worst dry skin in the winter and can never wear liquid foundation very well. This primer with moisturizer is the only product I've ever used that cures my dry skin and makes my foundation last!

This product is fantastic. I love how easy it was to blend and how the product kind of covered my pours. I would recommend this to anyone and definitely repurchase again. It looks way to beautiful under my foundation, I am satisfied.

I use this everyday whether I put makeup on or not, it’s great in addition to my moisturer as I have dry skin and adds some extra hydration underneath my makeup. One pump is enough for my whole face and it’s light and rubs in easily. I will most definitely repurchase.

This primer does add extra moisture into my skin and feels great on the skin. It does not hide pores but I use it in combination with a pore filling primer. The con of this is the price tag for the full price. I buy two travel size primers for $15 each and get the same amount of primer in the larger bottle for much cheaper.

Love this spray. It primes my skin wonderfully and sets a nice base for my foundation and concealer. Its a nice setting spray also for after my foundation and powder. I like to spray it and use a damp sponge to pat it in my skin.

This is a very water based primer so if you need moisture this has a lot in it because it is a primer and moisturizer all in one so it is perfect for traveling. I will not be buying this again but it is not a terrible product.

Didn't really like it... It was supposed to be a moisturizer and primer but did NOT do much in either department.. Felt my face super dry and when I was outside (it's sooo hot!) my make up would come off if I would sweat..

I use this daily, with or without makeup. It’s so great for my dry skin and my foundation goes on so smoothly after I apply it. I’m so glad this makeup company is finally recognizing that there are more skin types than oily!
