Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

I bought this primer after getting frustrated with the pump mechanism on a similar product. I use it every day, and it stays on really well, even when it's really hot. My only complaints are that it doesn't control oil very well and it sometimes comes off on my clothes (especially if I change my shirt in the middle of the day).

        I put it on over moisture. Makes the base color go on smoothly and evenly. Makeup doesn't run or feel like it's melting off under the hot Ga. Sun.

            I find Cotz sunscreen to give me much better coverage and priming that this particular primer. I saw no advantage to wearing with my combinatin skin.

                I wish I had known about this product sooner! It really helps my foundation go on much smoother! Tried a more expensive on after the first tube of this was gone but went back to ulta brand! Not necessary to spend extra money for a name, Ulta's works just as good.

                        I couldn't remember which primer I had used previously by Ulta and purchased this one by mistake. However, I would definitely repurchase this one as well! The one that I had previously loved actually came out green, still not sure which one that was BUT this one is completely different. It's clear and a bit wet but dries quickly. It's long lasting, in my opinion. Also, I feel like with this particular primer you need VERY LITTLE. I used what I thought was an appropriate amount but it was way too much so a little goes a long way. That's a good thing!!!

                          How is this different from ULTA's Matte Prime? I'm trying to decide between the two.

                            Great question! 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! :-)

                          Are you suppose to use this with your moisturizer? If so do you put it on before the moisturizer or after.

                            Yes, we do suggest using in conjunction with your moisturizer for best results! The order of application is moisturizer first, then primer. We hope this 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.
