      Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

      This was my first time buying primer so I'm not an expert. I have combination skin with adult acne so I don't take many risks with my skincare routine. However, I love Ulta makeup so my first thought was to try their primer first. So far, I like it. My complaint is that I believe they sold me a product that had been opened and tested. It was not marked as such. Please ask check out ladies to double check products for customers. So far I like it. It has not given me any new breakouts and it doesn't really feel like I'm wearing anything extra on my face.

          Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

          After searching high and low for a perfect primer, ULTA delivered in a major way! A beautiful gel, light and weightless, colorless that applies so evenly to your skin and is never sticky. Just a wee drop will do it and makeup stays true all day no matter the temperature. I love that you get a huge tube and it lasts for so long; feels even better if you keep it in the refrigerator.

          A must have at our glam studio.

            Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

            Hydro Prime is a clear product that you use over your mositurizer. I use a small amount to just smooth and even out my skin's texture. I then either use a light foundation over it or leave it as is as just an extra layer of protection. Sometimes I just use blusher and my eye and lip products for a flawless look.

                        I have extremely dry skin and this product makes it feel so hydrated. Usually, by the end of day my make up settles into my fine lines even with a setting spray. This primer has helped that issue tremendously. The price is very affordable and works better than other name brand primers I've used in the past.

                            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! :-)
