    Comments about Essence Fresh & Fit Awake Primer:

    The only thing this product could stand to improve upon is the amount of time I felt I needed to let it set on my skin before adding foundation and concealer. I tried a few different ways of applying since it was new for me. For heavier coverage I would mix in with my foundation and it set beautifully. I have small pores and am not sure this would be an idea product if they were any larger.

        Comments about Essence Fresh & Fit Awake Primer:

        I like Essence mascara and thought I would try this primer due to the good reviews. Huge mistake. At least it isn't expensive but this is basically body glitter. I used a tiny amount of product for a spot test and my hands are covered in glitter. I have washed them several times and soaked them in makeup remover to no avail. I can't imagine what the effect on my face would be. The idea of a natural glow is a complete joke as this is basically a bronzer with a chunky glitter infusion. I am a huge skincare junkie having lived in Asia for a number of years and this does not pass for a primer in any sense. Save your skin and do not put this gross product on it

        Ugh

        By RTP

        from Richmond, Virginia

        Comments about Essence Fresh & Fit Awake Primer:

        I really wanted to like this primer because of its amazing claims of dewy, fresh skin. Sadly, this primer did not perform well. This left a white cast on my skin and is not good for people of color.

        Comments about Essence Fresh & Fit Awake Primer:

        I've been using this everyday for about a week now. It really does wake up your skin and gives you a smooth and luminous base. Not greasy or sparkly at all and gives my face such a nice sheen before starting my makeup!

        Love it

        Comments about Essence Fresh & Fit Awake Primer:

        I'm very oily so I typically wear matte foundations, however I don't like to look cakey or dry so I always use this and it gives me a beautiful glow without making me oily! Weirdly, it does minimize pore appearance too.

        This primer really hydrates my skin and shrinks pores! my makeup stayed fresh all day long even though I walked in the rain! The scent is very subtle and texture is like moisterizer! definitely recommend

        DUPE FOR BECCA BACKLIGHT PRIMING FILTER

        By Dani N

        from Virginia

        Comments about Essence Fresh & Fit Awake Primer:

        This is 100% a dupe for the becca backlight priming filter at a fraction of the cost. They both do the same exact thing: prime and give a fresh glowy finish. This product is also very similar to the Wet n Wild dewy primer. As a dry skin girl im always looking for dewy/glowy primers and this one is great! 4 stars for the fact that this states "pore minimizing" on the front and it does not do this for me at all (neither does the becca or wnw one). At the price how could you not give it a try?

          Comments about Essence Fresh & Fit Awake Primer:

          This is probably the cheapest primer I've used and it works amazingly! I've spent so much money on high end primers because I felt it was necessary in order for my make up to last and to still look great. I love the light shimmer it adds to my face while it moisturizes, it does leave my skin a bit dewy at the end of the day, but in a good way plus I spray my Mario Badescu right before I leave my house in the morning too so I'm sure that attributes to the dewiness as well. I feel like this brand is very underrated and I don't understand why with such great products such as these. This will forever be my go to primer and less than $7 you can't beat that!
