    I don't know why elf promotes this as a hydrating primer. If you look at the ingredients, its literally silicone and oil. Thats it. When I purchased this, I pumped some on to my hand and immediately decided to return it. I wanted a hydrating primer, not a silicone primer mislabelled as a hydrating primer.

    Not my favorite...

    Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Hydrating Face Primer:

    I have dry skin, so when e.l.f. came out with these I was excited to try them. However, it was very greasy on my face, my hands... it also made my foundation separate on my nose. It did feel slightly hydrating though.

    I've tired all the elf primers and this is the one worked well for me. Helped with dry spots and hydrate the skin.

    Oily Mess

    By KatyBug

    from Washington, DC, United States

    Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Hydrating Face Primer:

    I bought this after hearing great things about ELF primer. I love some of my other ELF products, especially my daily moisturizer, but this really misses the mark. This felt like rubbing olive oil on my face. It sits on top of my skin and everything just slides right off my face if I don't use a ton of setting powder (which I don't love since I have dry skin). This is just a strange formula and I hate that it doesn't absorb into the skin. I will try another ELF primer though.

      Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Hydrating Face Primer:

      This is by far my favorite hydrating primer that I've tried. A little bit goes a really long way and it provides intense, non-greasy looking moisture that lasts all day long. It helps the longevity of makeup and creates a nice, slightly tacky base that makes it super easy to apply both cream and powder products.

        This is the best primer ever for anyone with dry skin. I go back to this primer time and time again. It pairs so well with all my primers.

        foundation slides off

        Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Hydrating Face Primer:

        This primer does hydrate, but in a slick and not helpful way. I used it under two different foundations for two weeks and both would melt off my face.

            Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Hydrating Face Primer:

            I had never used a face primer before and decided to start off with something cheap to get a feel for what it was supposed to do before I invested into a more expensive product. I bought this primer because I was a fan of the dewy skin look at the time. I have combination skin and this product did NOT work for me. It felt like I was applying grease to my face, it made my skin feel like it was pooling oil in some spots, and it did NOT keep my makeup on. The finish was not dewy, it was oily and gross. The worst part of this product however is how DISGUSTING it smells. Seriously, It smells awful like playdough. Even if the product worked, I still couldn't deal with the smell. I don't know if I got a bad bottle but it made me sick every time I took the cap off. Even my friends and relatives said it smelled disgusting. I will never buy it again and I do not recommend anyone waste their money on this primer.
