    Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

    I am used to a high end primer to use with a prestige foundation. This product is a fair replacement, and seems to blend well to make a nice smooth base for foundation. My makeup stayed on all day with this product. I don't know how I feel about the effectiveness on dry skin, so I am going to try another moisturizer with it to see if it improves. I suggest this product if you are looking for a less expensive alternative to prestige primers.

                          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! :-)
