Most Helpful Positive Review Love it
I use to use the Nyx hydratouch primer but after discovering it has alcohol in it I quit buying it. This one is better than that one! Very hydrating and fast absorbing. Also it has a scent to it like the nyx primer, kind of a manly/earthy scent, it is subtle though and it goes away quickly. (I'm sensitive to smells and I like it.)
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for my skin
Honestly it did nothing for me. My make up looked a little worse in my opinion. I have Normal, a little dry in some areas skin and read it would be helpful but it wasn't. It does smell amazing though. Im sure for dry skin it would work wonderful!

Very hydrating and makeup stayed intact. Works well for those with normal to oily skin types.
Not what I expected
diakpope from Franklin, TN
I tried this out since it was so inexpensive and was really disappointed. I felt like it did the same thing as throwing water on my face... no real reason to buy it. Also, the bottle is really small so you won't get a lot of product from this purchase.
Not really a primer
Very watered down from Virginia
Doesn't really give that Dewy look either. But it is okay to help blend two full coverage foundations together and applied with a brush. Doesn't apply well over moisturizer, especially serums. Make sure it is complete dry before applying any type of powder - but it somewhat defeats the purpose of a dewy base. Just not the best primer out there
LOVE THIS PRIMER
Newly Wed Allen from Manchester Ky
I've never tried any other primer quite like this one!! It's perfect for dry, flaky skin. It feels so smooth and just glides over the skin. GAME CHANGER
Read the label!!
Gin 86 from Maryland
I was super excited to try this product after reading all of the great reviews, then I received it and read the huge CANCER warning on the packaging.....something like that should be stated plain and clear on wwbsite.
Hydrating but not oily
Lex J from Los Angeles, CA
I love that this primer is hydrating but doesn't contribute to my oiliness, I usually stay away from hydrating dewy primers but this one has made me change my mind!
Great Price and Even Better Product
Maddy (Ulta Employee) from CDA
I bought this on a whim when I was looking for hydrating primer. Really glad I bought it, this is my go to hydrating primer. I usually mix it with the Pore-fessional by Benefit, and it works wonders. Wish we carried it in store.
Prince from IN
I usually will layer serums and SPF under this primer and my makeup lasts a smooth 8 hrs. Survey says: YES
Davi from Somewhere
I have super dry skin (flaky asf) and I needed a good cheap primer. This was amazing.
Best primer ever
Brittany from WV
I love high end make up. But this is seriously my go to primer.
Great for dry skin!
Kswin from Alabama
I have extremely dry skin, (I flake even in the middle of a hot, humid Alabama summer) so I've on the hunt for a hydrating primer for a while. This J. Cat hydrating primer is my favorite. It has a cool, gel-like consistency that is easy to smooth out on the skin. The minty fragrance is subtle. This primer works better for my skin than the other holy grail prestige primers I tried and the price cannot be beat.
Maya from New Jersey
I use this stuff almost everyday along with nyx dewy setting spray and together I've got a natural dewy look that lasts all day!
Kayla from Texas
It feels so good on the skin!
Angela from Clovis Ca
I love how hydrating it is...really creamy & feels good on the skin. As far as priming the skin or making it more of a flawless finish, I didn't notice that. It just seems like a hydrating primer/moisturizer. Very wet feeling, not waxy at all. I do like that though.
Wasn't expecting much.
Annie from California
Needed a moisturizing primer. I have dry/combo skin and started using a powder foundation. Usually my cheeks are so dry by the end of the day. This primer helped with hydration more than I thought it was going to. Face was matte all day. Not too much transfer with this primer. Didn't do much to fill pores. I loved the ingredients. The main reason I purchased this product. Great buy for the price if you're looking for a moisturizing primer. Smells really good as well. I really enjoyed this primer. I was excited to try it and I wasn't disappointed.
Great for drier skin!
Itsadewsy. from Shreveport, La.
I don't need mattifying primers as my skin isn't oily. My skin is super dry with patches of peeling skin thanks to RetinA. This is perfect. It feels like cool jelly going on. It dries down to blur imperfections. It's hydrating enough to sooth irritates skin, but dries down enough that your makeup doesn't slide off.
Not hydrating enough
Wynne from Yonkers
I'm very dry/combo. I need a hydrating primer but it helped keep foundation in place and no breakup or pilling on the face. It's nice but not amazing.
Best for DRY SKIN

Very hydrating and great for dry skin!
My favorite primer
natalie from louisiana
i use this under a matte foundation and it's really smooth looking
Sophia from New Jersey
This primer was just okay. It didn't do much for my skin, and my skin still felt dry after applying, especially after the product dries. I wanted this primer to work for me so bad because the price was great. But I won't be purchasing it again.
Sam from PA
This is a good hydrating primer. It's not going to give you a glow or anything like that but it creates a nice base for foundation.
Nikki from Michigan
This is insanely hydrating, I love it! I have extremely dry skin, I cover my face in facial oil, then moisturizer, then a hydrating primer and hydrating spray. a little goes a long way with this! Will be repurchasing!
best primer for dry skin
Ally Sch. from Kenai, AK
i get eczema dry spots and have tried so many primers. spendy to cheap and this one wins by a long shot. My skin looks noticeably healthier as well. No gross smell, feels like a liquid but definitely makes a smooth surface to apply my foundation over. I will buy again and recommend!♡
Dig this lasted all night
Dr from Yucca Valley Ca
Loved it kept me dewy all night without feeling greasy had a natural glow
My dry skin loves this primer
Cass from Houston, Texas
I use this primer almost everyday. I have super dry skin that sometimes gets flakey throughout the day if I don't keep applying moisturizer. The first time that I applied this primer, my skin instantly felt refreshed and hydrated. It feels absolutely amazing on my skin. It does have quite a scent to it but I personally don't mind. All in all, it hydrates my skin, preps it for makeup, and actually makes it last longer. Definitely one of my top favorite primers.
