Most Helpful Positive Review Just. WOW!
First time trying a primer in this form and so glad I did! Added hydration to my skin, pores were a bit more concealed (which is a first for any primer on me!) my skin just felt even more refreshed and with a cooling feeling. My t-zone usually gets oily by like 4 hours into the day and with this primer, oil is barely showing by the end of the day. Can feel a bit 'tacky' once applied but give it a few more seconds to dry and you should be good to go to with further makeup application. I am using this primer with NYX Bare With Me Tinted Skin Veil and again...Just. WOW! I'll provide a review for that product as well. I've also used this primer with previous foundation and it worked just as great.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not my cup of tea.
I bought this because there are not a lot of water based primers out there, and I use a water based foundation, so I'm trying to find an inexpensive one. The price is great, quantity is ample and to it's credit, it's not just a fancy moisturizer, as most water based primers. However, it left my skin feeling tacky, and seemed to mix with my foundation instead of creating a barrier to keep the foundation from settling into my pores and fine lines. I tried applying it a few different ways, and waiting for differing times to see if it would dry/absorb, but no luck. Might be one of my other skin care products interfering. Also, I'm disappointed that this comes in a jar. I really dislike makeup in jars, because they are magnet for dirt and germs.

this is lightweight & tacky-definitely keeps your makeup in place all day. a little goes a long way and it is truly very hydrating. you also get a TON (1.41 oz) for less than $20. 4 stars because i don't like the jar packaging, i would much prefer a pump primer. also, i don't recommend for someone with big pores or lots of texture, as it won't really help with either of those issues. & make sure you use a water based foundation, not oil based. since this is a water based primer it would cause separation with a oil foundation.
Great for Dry Skin
Alexis from Texas
I loved it for my dry/combo skin. Tacky after applying but feels fine after applying foundation or cc cream.
works with Jcat Aquasurance
Laura from Indianapolis
I bought this along with the nyx bare with me setting spray bc I'm trying to make the aqua surance powder work for me, and my skin was drying out using my usual primer and setting spray (smashbox primerizer and UD chill). Really happy with the results! Definitely seeing fewer dry patches and not oily. It feels great going on, no fragrance thank the gods, and while it's a smidge tacky if you let it set in for a mo it's fine. This will definitely be my go-to primer from now on.
Megan from Arizona
Best primer I've used! Keeps my makeup on all day, even in hot temperatures and helps keep it in place while wearing a face mask. Love it!
Best I've used!
Shutdown in NJ from NJ
This primer helps my makeup settle flawlessly on my skin. At one point I bought 7 hydrating primers to find the best one for me. I selected the Milani one with SPF 30-it really is very good, but, though my pores aren't noticeable, my Makeup would still get caught there. Not with this primer!!!!! Flawless!
Makeup looks amazing!!
Evette from El Paso, Texas
I love this primer especially since in some areas in my face I am dry.. this made my makeup look great!!!
Mari Ann from Houston, TX
I put some on after I wash my face and it leaves the moisture on face all day. When I put my make up on.. OMG! it does wonders!
My new fav primer
JackieO13 from Colorado
First time trying a jelly primer and my skin loves it ! It's lightweight and a little goes a long way. I only wish it wasn't in a jar but I can see why it is. I have combination skin and I have tried other primers that just didn't "feel" good on my skin. I love that this is hydrating and doesn't make my foundation look dry and flakey. I have been taking more care of my skin and having a routine so I'm sure that helps a lot! Also, I use a blender with a dabbing motion bc of my combination skin. I don't use foundation often, so if you're like me that just needs it every once in a while or don't expect something hardcore to last 12+ hours, then this is the one for you! If you want it to last a bit longer I suggest using a setting spray ! Especially with combo skin anyway.
Grandma from Fremont, CA
I was looking for a cheap primer to put on over my moisturizer first thing in the morning. I feel like primers protect your skin even if you are not wearing foundation. I didn't care for the consistency and my face tingles as it is drying. Maybe it isn't good for sensitive skin.
My favorite primer!
Marielle from Torrington CT
I have combination skin and I could NEVER find a primer that didn't make me look dry in some spots and oily in others. This primer doesn't clog your pores and has such a cool jello like texture. It lightly hydrates without being oily and covers dry spots! Will definitely be buying again
Love this product!
Dre from Clovis, ca
I use this primer before I apply any foundation to my face. I love out it makes my face feel fresh and cool. It holds my CSWS foundation in place all day long. Even in 100 degree plus weather. Absolutely love it!
I just bought my second and 3rd Jar
Hbj from NC
I love this primer. I have dry skin , it made my foundation stayed beautifully . Use it before I put on my sunscreen, then foundation. My makeup hold on till I'm ready to take them off.
Definitely worth the purchase for dry or combination skin
MzAmber from IL
Works great for both dry and combination skin
Would buy again.
S.z from Whittier, CA
I ended up loving this primer. I have oily skin, but this on my skin felt refreshing and I like the stickiness after which I think grasps my makeup so much better.
Wasnt ready for this Jelly!!!!
Shadow junkie from Lexington
This stuff is amazing. I love that its light weight so it's not greasy and the fact that it's a jelly is totally awesome. I have combination skin and it didnt make me super oily and gave a nice smooth finish to my makeup. A little goes a long way. Will definitely buy again.
Yes I would buy again

Love this weightless primer
Great fast drying primer
Lexi2123 from undisclosed
It is so light weight & cooling. Dries very quickly & leaves my skin feeling amazing! I'm a makeup sob but I love love love this! It's the best. I use a brush to apply.
Catmom from Inland Empire
This is so hydrating and blends out so smooth! It leaves your skin feeling tacky and perfect to apply your foundation over I just wish it came with a lil spatula thing
Persephone from Illinois
This primer is the best. Super hydrating and honestly really fun. It's like a tub of jello for your face. I'd honestly say this is a cheaper dub of the Illamasqua jelly primer.
Love this primer!!
Vi from Texas
I just bought my second jar, it helps with the longevity of my makeup and its so hydrating!! If you have combo skin I recommend you put this primer on the outer perimeter of your face!! Works amazing!!
Devvvv from Olathe, Kansas
Perfectly tacky and hydrating makeup wears like a dream
I would buy this again
Mamacita from Myrtle beach sc
I use this before my makeup and it makes my makeup looks flawless
Dee from Utah
I have extremely dry skin and was sick of my foundation having patches no matter what. I switched to this primer and my god, has it been heaven sent. So hydrating, and no more dry patches for my foundation to cling on. It's worth the hype. Buy it!!
Not what I was looking for
Beeca from Missouri
I seen a comparison review online with this one and a cover fx primer I love. The review said it was very similar. It was not even close to what I was looking for, it dries too fast. And it feels like there isn't a primer even on your face. Other people may love this product but I will stick with my cover FX
Just what I needed
Milianna from Detroit, MI
I needed a gripping primer because my makeup has trouble sticking to my nose. I'm happy to report that this primer works pretty well. It even keeps my foundation from breaking up around my nose. It claims to blur pores. I have extremely textured oily skin. For the most part I noticed no different in my pores, but that's not why I purchased this. I'm glad I don't need an expensive primer and I will repurchase it as long as I can. I do see it lasting me a long time since I'm just focusing on the nose area.
