Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

I don't understand who some people in the comments down below can say it's stcky? I have used this every day and never had that sticky feeling others claim. it goes on smooth, it does have thus cooling feeling when applied. I take a dime size amount and dad it on where I need it the most, I have extremely dry skin in the winter. This primer has helped my foundation go on so smoothly and my foundation looks amazing. I make sure I spread it on evenly, then wait a minute or 2 so it sinks in. I bought this when Ulta had the buy one get 1 , so glad I picked it up. never tried the ulta brand, so I grab it up and loved it.

        I love this primer! I have really dry skin so I am not able to wear many full coverage foundations, with this primer I can wear any foundation I want. I loved the tarte full coverage foundation but it was too matte. I can wear this primer and that foundation and my skin looks great!

              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.

                        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! :-)
