        Due to the harsh winter weather my skin has been very dry lately. On top on my moisturizer, this prime works well for my dry, sensitive skin without any irritation.

          It doesn't irritate my skin. Does not matify my foundation when I want to have a dewy look and my foundation stays in place even if I don't wear a powder. My skin doesn't feel dry and I wear it over moisturizer.

                This is my favorite primer right now because it is unscented, paraben free, and silicone free. It goes on clear and is gentle on my sensitive skin.

                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.

                        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! :-)
