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.

            Comments about SheaMoisture Face Primer:

            I've tried several primers that were either too oily by the end of the day or caused breakouts. This is the first one that not only holds my makeup but seems to have improved the condition of my skin. All I have changed in the last week is my makeup to SheaMoisture and my acne has cleared up substantially.

            I have oily T zone, acne prone skin. Love this stuff and the mineral foundation as well.

            Best of All Primers Out There

            By Karen

            from Michigan

            Comments about SheaMoisture Face Primer:

            Don't tell me about the wonderful attributes of the luxury brand primers, I've already owned them. Save yourself a huge pile of money, time and frustration and give Shea Moisture primer a try. The products it DOESN'T contain are all the culprits that make your current primers disappointing. This provides you with a smooth surface that your foundation will marry with and stay looking amazing.

              I bought this during the summer but because of the Shea butter its too oily for my skin. Probably better in the winter months

                  Comments about SheaMoisture Face Primer:

                  Until now, all primers prevented the best possible application of face makeup. From excessive pilling, dry patches, matteness, clumping, to greasiness, all too often I had to cleanse everything off and begin again without a primer -- but not this one! Offering no pigmentation, it is more like skincare than makeup, but helps to smooth any textural flaws like creases, crepiness, dry patches, and large pores. Even without makeup, it helps to improve the appearance my skin and at a small fraction of the typical cost. If you are looking for an extreme matte finish, this is not your primer. Well done, SheaMoisture!

                    I saw this primer on the Ulta website and decided to try it. Other primers I have used contained silicone and this one does not and the price is excellent for the 1.7 oz size. It goes on smoothly and doesn't have any parabens, it is fragrance free, no gluten, no mineral oil, no talc, no sulfates, no silicone, no phthalates. I appreciate their care for our skin so this will be my primer from now on. I would highly recommend giving it a try!

                    Honestly this primer is amazing! I had yet to find a primer I was totally in love with. This stuff makes my makeup stay on and makes my face feel great. I have oily skin so this works for me. The smell is a plus for me. I'm going to keep buying this!
