        Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

        great if you have sensitive skin or want more natural ingredient base. i started using this because i had reactions to smashbox and bare minerals primers. it goes on smooth. you can put on as much or little as you want. make up application looks flawless after. the ulta professional matte primer is also great. it is comparable to smashbox and bare minerals but doesnt cause my face to break out. both the ulta primers are a great value.

          Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

          looks like Smashbox primer, thought for 1/2 the price I may as well try it -- not happy -- watery consistency that is difficult to rub in. save your money & buy the Smashbox product. Well worth it!

              • Not on sensitive skin

              Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

              I purchased this product as well as ulta brand of matte primer. I thought this would work well because I do have dry skin but it's also sensitive. I was wrong. The first time I used the product I put a bit on the tips of my fingers and began applying to my face. After I began rubbing it in, my face began to get uncomfortably warm to the touch as well as just a burning sensation . I'm not sure if this is merely because of my sensitive skin or dryness but it was concerning enough to not want to use it on a daily basis. Especially because there's no noticeable hydration either. Your skin just appears to be dewy.

                  A:

                  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.
