      Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

      I was having a hard time finding a product that keeps my skin from drying as the day progresses. This does the trick. I use it after moisturizing and before applying foundation and my skin stays dewy all day instead of drying and crumbling my makeup.

              Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

              I bought this primer because they were out of my normal primer. It felt like I was just putting water on my face. It made the foundation very difficult to apply (almost sticky) and I had to use a lot more foundation than I normally use. I will NOT purchase this product again.

                I could probably spend more on a primer but I'm not ready to commit yet. I think this primer works moderately well. I have combination skin. If your skin is more oily and you are using matte I would consider more of a high end product.

                      Not in love with it. I've had Smashbox samples and I really like it. Cheaped out and bought this one. Maybe it will be good for someone else, but my makeup looks no better and stays on no longer than without it.

                          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! :-)

                          Hydro Prime is ideal for all skin types including dry skin! It is formulated with a form of hyaluronic acid to provide intense hydration. For best results on dry skin, exfoliate (twice to three times weekly) and moisturize prior to primer application.
