Most Helpful Positive Review Love it! Would purchase AGAIN!
So I've always had issues with primers not sticking to my skin & making my foundation look patchy on my nose. Before trying this primer, my go-to primer was Bobbi Brown's Primer + Mattifier, which is 10/10 but I wanted to venture out on primer (again lol).
So I live in South TX where the weather is humid hot. With this primer, my makeup looked so smooth and fresh and my makeup didn't look patchy!!! I got so many compliments. I have super oily skin/not acne prone. Even if I don't have blemish-prone skin, this has willowherb which helps in reducing acne/flare ups.
This was a good purchase, honestly. I normally don't rate or comment on purchases but this one was def worth.
The scent is pleasant and the product feels great on my skin! Feels somewhat cool and refreshing! I love that it is cruelty free and made WITHOUT silicon, parabens, and sulfates. I am a big lover of skin care and knowing what's in the products I am introducing to my skincare/makeup routines, so knowing this product has great ingredients makes me happy I purchased it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for me
For me this did not work. I used for a week and immediately after one use my face broke out so bad. I kept using hoping my face would adjust to it but it did not. My face got huge cyst like bumps on it. My face is still in recovery form it. Also for the times that I used it my makeup at the end of the day looked nasty.. My $5 primer from walmart works better than this did for me. One good thing it does have a cool sensation when you apply it to your face. This is my honest review. I gave it to my sister in law to try so maybe she will have better luck.

Really like this product! Use it everyday as primer after putting on moisturizer. Goes on smoothly and brightens. Keeps makeup on. I love every product I have tried from TULA. This one is right up there too. Bought one for my mom too. She also really likes it.
Not blurring enough for sensitive, blemish-prone skin
Kat from USA
So there's little oil control with this product, and it made me break out horribly when I used this to "blur" before applying foundation. This product would probably work if you just struggle with large pores and use no foundation, maybe just for a light blurring effect. I can't say I saw any brightening and it really made liquid foundation application look streaky.
Worth the money $$
Annabananarn from Minneapolis, MN
I've been trying to find a primer that didn't contain silicones for quite some time. I've tried some that seem too "slippery" and don't hold on to foundation well. I had given up on using one until I saw this Tula primer on a Beauty Steal promotion. This one is lightweight, absorbs into your skin and actually feels and looks like it's doing what it claims to do. Would definitely purchase again.
I would by this product again and again!!!!!
TB2008 from Newark, Ohio
This product is simply amazing! I have tried many primers and this is hands down the best one yet. It goes on smoothly and leaves a satin feeling base. It is perfect to use only or as a primer for makeup.
L.T. from Phoenix, AZ
I've tried so many primers that didn't work in minimizing pores or fine lines. Most of the gel based ones tend to ball up when applied after moisturizer and they tend to make my foundation melt by mid-day and they make me shiny. This has a nice cooling effect when I applied and really does well to minimize pores and lines. I love it!

I can go workout and my make up stays looking great! Absolutely love this product!!
Wish I would have gotten more when it was on sale

Strange texture, but WOW
HannahBanana from Columbia, SC
Bought this on 21 days of beauty sale and said , "what the heck, I'll try it". Saw rave reviews and some poor reviews. Let me tell you. This is new holy grail! The texture is strange, feels like silicone and goes on a little tacky - but feels weightless! After letting it dry down, I applied my maybelline matte + poreless foundation. My skin like beautiful. Made my foundation look like second skin. And the best part of all - my makeup stayed matte for hours in the southern September heat!! Pricey, but will repurchase.
Firstie Teacher from SC
I never leave reviews. Never. But this is by far the best primer I've used! This definitely keeps my makeup in place and gives it amazing stay power! Even through mask wearing and the southern heat! My makeup lasts for hours. Definitely worth a try.
Smoothed our my textured skin

If you use too much it will flake. Let it dry fully before adding concealer or foundation.
BEST PRIMER EVER
DawnaMarie from Baltimore
I love the way this feels on my skin.
brenSF from New Mexico
This is a great primer that has a fresh lemony scent. It really does help my foundation go on smoother and last longer. The only reason for not giving it 5 stars is the price. I bought this during a special promotion but not sure if I would pay the full price for it.
I wasn't impressed with this item.
Lucy from Oxnard
I did not like the product. I did not see a difference in the application of my foundation or in the durability. The product feels like your slathering silicone on your skin and does not brighten your complexion. Very disappointed.
I would buy this product, my foundation looked really good
Lis💗 from Omaha Ne
I use this as a primer and my foundation lasts longer than usually.
Not for me
Cocodog from Sunny South Carolina
I read the reviews before purchasing. Several of them mentioned it working well for oily skin. It didn't work for me AT ALL. Made my skin oilier! I'll still with my tried and true Ulta faces by Beccs and Murad. I'm going to return this Rula in a few minutes.
Little too thick for me
Jakecharm from Michigan
Prefer to use under powder rather than liquid makeup
My skin and makeup are thanking me for buying this
Catbird from Wilmington, NC
This makes my makeup blend easier and therefore I'm using less makeup and application is seamless. I require less touch ups during the day and it makes my skin soft. I have sensitive skin and Rosacea and it hasn't caused any skin issues. I'm so glad I discovered this product.
Really enjoy this primer!
Great from Boston
Great primer, I have used it with BB creams and the Charlotte Tilbury airbrush foundation and it really helps it stay and look fresh!
Primers from Rolling hills
I have dry skin during fall but this product has helped with any makeup product I use. this is such a good product if you are sensitive to primers with any silicone ingredient. this primer looks like vasaline but once you apply it to your face, you literally can see how it blurs any fine lines and brightens the skin. Most importantly to me it doesn't not mess with my baking powders.
Before I forget it also have great ingredient to help settle makeup
Mile from Winter Haven , Florida
I've tried many primers and definitely none of them was near as good as this one. It's so soft when applied and the make up stays in place, the skin looks so healthy and bright .
I have oily skin and it didn't cause any issues!
Stepha from Louisiana
This is the best best primer ever!!!
I have tried it with multiple foundations and it's amazing everytime !!
Huda foundation- works awesome
NARS foundation- works awesome
Tarte foundation- work awesome
Just buy it!!!!!
Good Primer But Caused Breakouts
HayleyH from Chicago, IL
I have never disliked a Tula product until this one. Was super excited to try this and as a primer, it does what it's supposed to do; however, it definitely caused my skin to breakout in painful pimples. So although it was minimizing pores, it also was clogging. Not for me.
OCD80 from Lincolnton NC
I can't believe I have never heard of this primer before now. Bought it on a whim when it was on sale and now I am hooked! I have acne prone skin and lots of texture. This primer blurs and makes my makeup look smooth. Makeup grips to it and lasts longer. Love the refreshing sensation upon application. Does not break my face out.
Love this tiktok made me buy it
