Most Helpful Positive Review My Go To Primer
I recently purchase this item and you cannot go wrong ! The price is amazing compare to the high end brands I typically buy (smashBox). I have sensitive skin and dry patches in certain areas of my face. After applying this product before my foundation my makeup throughout the day was flawless. My face didn't look cakey Or felt like I had so much layers of makeup product.
Most Helpful Critical Review Clumpy & not for my dry skin
I wanted this to work so so badly. I saw the reviews from other makeup users with dry skin, and they loved it! So with the price point, and positive reviews I thought I would give it a shot. Well, the application is lovely. It's lightweight, and really does feel moisturizing. The application itself is GREAT. The problem is the wear. After a few hour, it lifts my dewy + smooth foundation off my face, and causes literal clumps of silicone. I can rub my hand on a circle on my face and it will roll off in clumps. I prefer the skincare routine + a fantastic moisturizer as my base. My theory is the peach fuzz on my face doesn't help. That it clings to whatever it can. So if you're a Latina like me or have a lil extra hair in your genetics maybe steer clear. Will be updated once I try it with a freshly shaven face, but as of now it's a no. I don't have acne, I have an even tone, and just dryness so I am sad it didn't work

Not extremely hydrating, but a nice base that sticks makeup well.

I have combination skin, so i use this on my cheeks, whereas on my tzone, i use a mattifying primer. I like this, and I think this keeps my makeup in place, but I dont think its the best of the best. I also set my face with powder and setting spray, so I cant tell if this primer really makes a difference.

Wonderful filling after I apply it.
Wanted to love
Auds from CP
I loved how this felt on my face, and how my foundation looked with it. I could really tell it grabbed on to my makeup, because it was no longer rubbing off on to my glasses like before. It even made my skin less oily. BUT... and a huge but at that... it made my skin break out just after a few days. I'll get acne from time to time, but it was little white heads all over, even on places I don't typically break out. Had to return after that. Three stars because I really loved it at first.
Try something else

Does not prime makeup for long period of times.
It's a must!
MFranken from Iowa
I have combination skin and this my #1 primer I go for when it's been an hour since I have applied my skin care and need something to revitalize my skin before makeup. It keeps my dry areas hydrated and it does not affect my oily areas at all. My skin looks plump and my cream and powder products just melt into the skin wonderfully! I can not rave about this product enough. ❤❤❤❤
NOT FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
GnarlyJane from Fort Bragg NC
I've used this one, the white & clear one and they all irritated my skin.. it made my skin dry and burn while I applied it. Not only did it irritate my skin but it clogged my pores and made me have the WORST break out of my life!! I've never broke out the way I did when I tried these primers. They didn't hold my foundation in place and it made my make up crease and break up on certain areas of my face.. Your experience may be different, I however will never use these again.
It's Good For Oily Skin As Well.
Crazy-for-u from Minnesota
See, I have combination skin, so this was yet another primer I tried, hoping that it would hydrate my skin and also keep my makeup from getting too oily and sliding off halfway through the day. It does just that. Disclaimer: this is my personal opinion on the product. It may not work for everyone.
Happy with this primer
Deb from CA
Initially tried this product thru a freebie with purchase. Worked well enough to continue purchasing. Not irritating or greasy.
Zoe from New Mexico
As a oily skin girl this is a must have! Under drying foundations this is the best primer ever. It doesn't clog pores and isn't silicone either. This moisturizes your skin while smoothing out any pores ❤️
Will never buy again!
Izzie from Texas
This first time I used it I thought my skin and makeup looked great. However, as I looked closer in the mirror I noticed my makeup in certain spots looked as if it was crumbling. I tried going over the spots with a wet sponge and nothing worked. Never again!
I bought it again.

Used under makeup
Aurora from Moses lake Wa
I like it !
Deborah from Ohio
I have very dry, sensitive skin. I have tried numerous primers that have dried me out more or made my face itch, burn and break out. I was pleasantly surprised that I can actually wear this one and it works! Give it a try.
Imgay from Fort Collins
It makes the makeup look good at first but doesn't last at all
Claims to be hydrating, doesn't do enough
Emily from California
It didn't do much to hydrate my skin, even having a Normal skin type, it doesn't make foundation application look any more dewy or smooth. I always had to use another primer underneath this so my skin doesn't look dry.
Made my skin blotchy!
NaturalSkin6 from Connecticut
At my recent bridal makeup trial the makeup artist used this. Having not used primer before, she used this before any other products. My face immediately got super red and blotchy, and started to burn. I don't consider my skin to be sensitive but this was the worst! The redness and hot burning went away shortly after wiping it all off luckily.
I would not buy this primer if it was the last one on earth
Erin from Fredericksburg
The second I put it on my skin it burned it
Yess i 100% recommended to everybody..

lemme delve into a skincare lesson to help people out when it comes to choosing the right products.
there's a common misconception that people with oily or combination skin should stray away from any hydrating/moisturizing skin products. this is very untrue for the most part, as excessive sebum production is usually a sign of severely dehydrated skin. dehydration is caused by many factors; some being climate, genetics, cleansers, toners, etc. when your skin is dehydrated, water-based hydrating products are the most efficient at mediating this issue. the molecules in these types of products are small enough to penetrate beneath the outermost skin layers; hydrating your skin from the inside out, therefore, diminishing the amount of sebum your pores release to "moisturize" your skin. oil-based products are ONLY efficient at moisturizing the skin's surface. oil CANNOT be absorbed deep into the pores. the "oil combats excess oil" remedy is generally untrue unless you're using oil-based products in conjunction with water-based ones, or if your skin is just dry on the surface - not dehydrated. tricky, i know.
without makeup, my skin leans towards being dry on the surface. however, once foundation and concealer is on, my skin becomes an oil cleanser on its own. i find that having lightly moisturized skin prior to makeup application mediates this issue, but the difficult part is that most moisturizers have a tendency to cause makeup to separate on the skin. i use hydrating primers because of this, as they're designed to moisturize the skin while also working in conjunction with makeup.
now onto why this primer didn't work for me.
the consistency is quite thick and greasy; more comparable to a night cream than a light moisturizer or any primer i've used. instead of drying down, it sits on the face, causing streaky foundation along with making my skin even GREASIER than usual. my makeup gets 2 hours of wear time, no joke. pass on this product if you have my skin type.
Sammie Jo from Gaylord mi
First time I used it it was amazing. Doesn't take a lot of product and really works.
Great for the price
BWest from Texas
Works well with my dry skin. It's not a holy grail product but it's really great for the price.
marcie from TN
I purchased this after using up a sample size and I absolutely love it! It feels amazing on my skin - hydrating and smooth. I have normal to dry skin and use this after my morning skin care routine. It always makes my foundation look great- I've used it under high end and drug store brand foundations and have never been disappointed. I highly recommend this product.
tristan from dallas
this primer doesn't really do anything and is pretty much a bad moisturizer. save your money and get the flower beauty primer
Anne from Miami
Absolute love this product I previously had the nyx matte primer and it was rough and hard to apply. This primer is so smooth easy to use and leaves your skin feeling hydrated
