                  This was not the first primer I've tried. It's a pretty decent primer but for the price I have found better. I have combination skin so it helped hydrate the dry areas but only for about 15mins after application

                              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.
