    I use this under foundation. I find I don't have to use as much foundation because it spreads better.

      Comments about SheaMoisture Face Primer:

      It's my favorite that I found so far. My tzone tends to be dry and every other primer has made it worse. This one moistures those difficult spots for more even coverage.

        love this primer!

        By Beauty Fiend

        Comments about SheaMoisture Face Primer:

        This primer is a amazing. I have used it since early summer and fell on love with it. I have dry skin and this works wonders for my skin. I have the Smashbox photo finish primer and absolutely hate it! This product doesn't contain all the silicone based ingredients as the Smashbox primer and it feels like a luxurious beauty cream. Those with oily skin may not like the feel of this because it's quite moisturizing but not overly oily feeling. I love that you can use it with or without makeup to make your skin feel soft and dewy. For a drug store product this is amazing!

          Comments about SheaMoisture Face Primer:

          I am 45 years old and I am battling the fine line and wrinkle war. I have tried many primers, but find that some are not hydrating enough or they cause break outs. I also find that by the end of the day, some face primers make my face look dry and I find that my lines and wrinkles are calling out and drawing attention! When I use this primer, there are no breakouts and my face does not dry out. My makeup looks great until I take it off in the evening! I notice that my makeup does not crease and I can easily "bake" my concealer for a flawless and crease-free look. If you battle dry skin and want to successfully fight the fine line and wrinkle war, give this a try. It is even cheaper than the high end primers I have purchased. If you have oily skin, I am not sure how this would work for you since this stuff is pretty hydrating. I will have my daughter try this under her makeup and see how it performs. I will keep you posted! Happy New Year, everyone!

          Comments about SheaMoisture Face Primer:

          I truly love this face primer! I honestly did not have high hopes, I was just looking for something more natural for my skin and this exceeded my expectations! I pat it on my face after moisturizing and my foundation has been staying put all day! I love the way it makes my face feel and especially love that it is not full of chemicals. This is my new favorite primer, I have completely stopped using my high end one. Will definitely repurchase!

                I use a primer everyday, I live in the midwest, so in the winter months I switch to a moisturizing primer to keep my face from drying out...this was a horrible product it caused my whole face to breakout and as a professional meeting a with clients daily, this was extremely embarrassing

                  Comments about SheaMoisture Face Primer:

                  I needed a new primer, and liked the idea of a moisturizing one, as I typically use full makeup (primer, concealer, foundation, etc) when I travel. Travelling skin for me is dry skin! I did like the extra hydration layer, but found that this product did not dry to a smooth base like other primers I've used. It takes a few minutes to absorb, and helps provide a dewy base, more sticky. It will be nice for the coming winter, but I will probably not repurchase.
