  • "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 works well to help apply foundation evenly, however it does not keep it from creasing or hide large pores. It is easy to apply, very runny and liquidy. I would not recommend this product to others.

I used to use the blue moisturizing photo finish primer and I believe this is the replacement for that, I tried it and I'm in love! It's feels even better on my face than the previous version. Perfect primer!

This is a great product for people with dry, flaky skin. I do still apply my normal moisturizer underneath but this does add just an extra layer of moisture and helps my foundation apply and blend out beautifully. It is one of my favorites.

I like this lightweight formula. It is a mix of a moisturizer and a primer. My makeup does not stay on quite as good as it does with other primers, but i would think this would be really good for dry skin!

Bought this a about a week and a half ago and I am obsessed!! I have dry/combination skin and this was the holy grail primer that I have been looking for. Long lasting and helps with the application of my foundation. I love this primer.

My favorite new primer and moisturizer! Helps my skin look soft and helps the makeup has a dewy smooth finish. It also helps the makeup last longer. Worth the price and would recommend to my friends.

This is great for dry skin. And I love that it’s 2 products in one. It saves me time in the mornings, which is nice. Don’t recommend for oily skin though because it can be too much and make you oily.

This product is very good for hydration! It doesn’t work as well as other primers I have used but the hydration part works if that’s what you’re looking for (which I was at the time of purchase) it did not last me that long either.

Wasn’t a fan of this product it was alright but not amazing. It was very liquidity and I felt like I had to still use a moisturizer and primer separately. I just didn’t feel like it did much at all.

The primer is nice, it hydrates my skin really well, but I don’t get anything out of it other than that. It doesn’t reduce pores or get rid of redness, it just moisturizes my face. It doesn’t make my makeup last longer or anything.
