      Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

      Never used a primer before this. I see no difference in when I do use this and when I don't... goes on with a cool feeling, but feels heavy and sticky. Used less and there wasn't much change. Wouldn't recommend.

          Received this in a gift with purchase kit and absolutely love it. Could not be more impressed with it. Have aging and very sensitive skin. (Smashbox gives me eczema!) I'd give it a full five, but because I rarely ever use the stuff, I feel like I have nothing to which to compare the product.

                The product does it's job but I think it gives me a little too much shine that other primers don't and I prefer less shine.

                    Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

                    I sampled the product in the store and it seemed very moisturizing. It went on very smoothly and felt slick; however, when it dried, my face didn't feel soft and moisturized. Normally when using a primer, my face feels very soft; that didn't happen with this primer. It did prepare my face for foundation and my foundation applied very evenly over the product. I'm pleased with this product overall, but I will probably purchase the either the Ulta Matte Prime primer or the regular Ulta primer the next time I purchase.

                            A:

                            Hydro Prime is silicone-free and formulated with a form of hyaluronic acid to provide intense hydration to all skin types. It is especially beneficial to those with dry, dehydrated skin.

                            Matte Prime (Item #: 2220410) is oil-free and formulated with salicylic acid and mattifying powders to keep oily, blemish-prone skin shine-free and to prevent breakouts and pore congestion. Both primers are paraben-free and noncomedogenic (non-pore clogging), and both perform beautifully under your makeup to extend its wear. We hope this extra info helps! :-)
