Most Helpful Positive Review A MUST HAVE
I absolutely and completely have fallen in love with this primer. I live in Colorado so my skin gets really dry just in the winter leaving me with a combination skin type. I easily get too oily but also get super dry and flaky. At first I tried the smashbox primer+moisturizer and I personally hated it for my skin type it didn't moisturize very well and it didn't work well as a primer covering my pours. So I felt like it didn't do either. Then I tried all the urban decay primers and they seemed like they were better for oily skin really good coverage but sucked everything out of my skin so it started cracking and the product was soooooo thick. Then I came across this and it has been absolutely perfect not thick like urban decay but not too light like a moisturizer. It covers and hydrates perfectly and its GREAT for combination skin.
Most Helpful Critical Review Bare Minerals Primer
I used the previous primer from last year. It was a much lighter primer and also had SPF in it. This one to me feels heavy, like a night cream, doesn't really help the makeup go on smoothly, nor does it have an SPF in it.
I did not expect this from this company, and was disappointed in the product.

I loved this product from the start. I feel naked without it.
JoJo12 from Oregon
This moisturizes and then feels like your is has nothing on it just perfect. The best primer that bare minerals makes
Does not hydrate
Michelle0210 from MN
I just bought this hoping for added moisture. It was hard to blend and my skin actually feels more dry using it today than my usual primer.
Didn't do much
Grandma from Lee's Summit, Mo.
This Primer has hydration built into it, which a good. That said, it didn't do much as far as fine lines are concerned.
A MUST for dry skin
Tamdarling3 from Nashville
I apply this primer immediately after my serum and moisturizer, then let dry for a few before applying makeup. It helps my dry, flakey areas and helps my makeup stay on all day!
Locks in the Moisture
Colie123 from Richmond, VA
I have exceedingly dry skin. Like crocodile dry. This primer really helps lock in moisture and creates a nice smooth layer before I start building the rest of my makeup.
Dry skin must have
Rogelio from Minnesota
A little goes a long way for this, but the finish is gorgeous. I personally have very sensitive dry skin and this caused no irritation and none of that strange flaky/ball up of product.
Tania from Oxnard
Great product. Highly recommended
Beatriz from California
I absolutely love this primer! It is pretty thick but I love it because it feels like a moisturizer and primer all in one! It applies evenly and a little goes a long way. It is a bit sticky so it helps with the foundation to stay on all day! My skin feels so amazing and smooth!
Tacky and Greasy feel
Kira C. from Philadelphia
What can I say, it does what a primer is supposed to do so I gave it 3 stars, but I don't like how it feels. I'm almost sure it makes me break out. Of course there is a multitude of things that could also be making me break out, but I definitely break out more when I use this product. I have dry skin and some psoriasis on my hairline, which led me to try a hydrating primer, but I won't be buying this one again. The gross, tacky feeling I get from it is too unpleasant, even though my foundation looks good on top of it.
Easy smooth application
71s the number from Berlin CT
I've been using this product for about a month. Hydrating but not oily. Goes on smoothly and I only need a little to apply to my entire face.
Avanti from Ohio
This primer helps my makeup stay all day and also helps to smooth out my skin to allow a beautiful application. The only downside is that it feels thick so I feel like I use more to cover my face.
Crustykent from Louisville, KY
I got a sample a couple of purchases ago, then I bought another. I love this product! I won't apply makeup without this!
Best for dry or combo skin
Nico212 from New York
I've been using this primer for over a year now and it's simply THE BEST. This product has excellent moisturizing properties without being oily! In the past I've had a lot of trouble finding the right primer for my skin type, (I'm dry around the cheeks/forehead and oily around the chin area.) Every primer I've tried previously has given me breakouts in the chin area. This one does not! It is a must have!

I have R.A. and Lupus. I love the moisture and primer all in one. Thank you.
A primer that really works!
kwitt11 from San Diego, CA
I used to use prime time, but then switched to good hydrations. I absolutely love this primer and don't use my complexion rescue foundation without it. It's smooth and a little goes a long way. I would definitely recommend this for someone with combinations skin like mine.
Makes my skin feel smooth and soothed!
Ginger50 from Portland, ME
I received this as a trial sample and gave it a shot. I agree with the reviewers that say it's thick and does not spread well. I do find I have to use a lot to cover my face because it does not spread well. So I think the 1 oz will be gone in less than a month. But, I love how silky smooth my face feels when I wear it! I usually apply the original powder foundation after. But, if I don't, it still soothes the redness in my cheeks and makes my face look healthy. I actually really like it - I am just concerned with the size of the product vs. the price because I do seem to have to use a lot of it to cover my face and neck.
What the heck?
betty1 from WA
I hate to do this but an honest review is best & most helpful. This primer is terrible. It does not go on easily (it's too thick almost like glue), it does not make my skin smoother or keep my make-up from settling into fine lines or wrinkles. The only reason I use it is because it helps with applying the Bare Pro concealer.
Miss B from Orlando FL
Product applies evenly and smoothly which causes foundation to also apply evenly and smoothly.
Kim63 from Elizabethtown, KY.
I've been using Bare Minerals for years & always been thrilled with all their products. THe Good Hydration's primer does not disappoint. So amazing & good for your skin, if you tend to have dry skin.
Liz from FL
This makes my make up look great!
worse thing I ever bought from Bare Minerals
laineeloo from Orange County, California
This hydration lotion is terrible and definitely not worth the money. The tube is 1oz of junk. It is too thick, hard to spread and my skin still feels dry after application. It is a total waste of money and I would like my money back when I get back home in July.....
Not so silky.
Toni45840 from Findlay, OH
I bought this thinking that it would be comparable to the original primer that comes in the pump bottle (which the pump doesn't work so well) and it is nothing like it. It is rather thick and does not spread very easily on your face. It does fill in pores and fine lines under your foundation though so as a primer it does work.
Great light coverage
Kpalmer01 from Saint Augustine, Fl
This really does prime my skin before I use the original powder foundation. My makeup stays put all day.
Great product so light and smooth
Deborah from Decatur, Indiana
This product is amazing it made my makeup feel light and smooth
