Most Helpful Positive Review Great for sensitive skin
I have very fair and sensitive skin as I am a natural red head and many products irritate my skin. I have a hard time finding things that work with my skin and it takes a lot of trial and error in finding a good product. I started using the FAB coconut skin smoothie primer about two years ago and it is the only primer that doesn't make me break out! I love this stuff because it is moisturizing and leaves a very very fine shimmer that almost resembles a natural dewy look. In the summer I will sometimes only use this primer and a little concealer for a natural look. My only problem with this primer is that if you don't let it dry completely before applying any makeup it will start to peel off and pill up, and it takes quite a while to be completely set and dry on my skin.
Most Helpful Critical Review Super Greasy
I don't hate this as a primer if I know that I'm going to be applying powder on top, but I never use it on it's own... I know it's supposed to be luminous but I look straight up greasy when I use it on its own. It doesn't sink into the skin very well so I end up looking oily the whole day. I also haven't noticed any skincare benefits, so all in all I would rather use a primer that has skincare benefits and won't make me look like I rubbed vegetable oil into my face.

I'll start by saying that I had to stop using this product due to breakouts on my sensitive skin...and I still am giving 5 stars. That's how much I love the formula. My combo skin did so well with this. It allowed for less steps in my morning routine and gave such a beautiful, even glow under makeup. Worth a try if you struggle with moisture balance or love a dewy vibe.
I thought I would like it...
Daisy from Athens, GA
I used a sample size of this product and it made me want to buy the full size. Now that I own it, I regret it a little because my makeup doesn't seem to layer well. My makeup will look very flakey, I am not sure if my combination with my skincare products is off and just doesnt mix well but I'm really sad I don't like it as much as I'd hoped!
Alyssa from NJ
I tried this in addition to my cleansing/makeup routine. The product smells nice and is very smooth and silky feeling. I love the very delicate shimmering glow it gives my skin. I gave this 4 stars because I believe the price is a little steep for what you get.
Love this product
Patty from Placentia Calufornia
Use product before foundation either liquid or powder. It is the best primer that I have used..
kel from Chicago
This primer makes my skin feel soft and look glowy. My sister thought I was wearing highlighter but it was just this primer. I have fair, sensitive, combination skin.
I will buy again
Val from Omaha ne.
Great I will buy again, always aware of ingredients as I have lupus and this product line works for me!
This is so good.
Noomie from USA
I got this a a free little sample and I love it so much. It makes your skin beautifully hydrated and glowy.
Dry and Oily
Elvie from Dallas,Tx
I have older combination skin and using this primer left me extra oily and dry at the same time. I tried rubbing into skin thinking I used to much and it started peeling off my skin. Not for me sadly.
Sydney from North Carolina
This with the VDL Lumilayer Primer is AWESOME for dry skin ladies like myself, highly recommend!!!
Maybe good with a matte
E.J. from Freehold, New Jersey
I can agree with all the reviews. I recommend exfoliate first (the night before) if using as a makeup free day. Best used under a foundation that is matte/dry. More of a fall/ winter product. Not good if tend to become oily later in the day. Use smallest amount maybe pea size. Add more if needed.
Not worth it for me.
Ana from Clovis
Sadly this did not work on me. Especially during the summer time. My makeup would feel super oily during the day. I would use it as a moisturizer on days that I wanted to be makeup free. I will be returning back to the store I'm not really using it.
Good But Not Great
Cheska from USA
I've had this product for a while and I wanted to love it so bad! It smells amazing and feels light on the skin. Not bad as a moisturizer but not a primer. Left my makeup tacky/sticky and patchy.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
Esmi from Las Cruces, NM
I got this product as a gift and i never want to use anything else. I like to wear this with little or no makeup, it makes my skin looks so glowy and healthy✨✨
Karen from Florida
I got this as a freebie in my allure beauty box and absolutely loves it , came to my favorite beauty supply **ULTA** to get some more .
I use this primer with the Clinique spf mixed together for a natural "no make up" look . You will love it !!!
Smells great & smooths into skin with no build up .
Keeps make up on
Jennifer from il
I got this as a sample, decided to use it as a moisturizer, not really caring or thinking about it as a primer. As a healthcare worker, I wear a mask all day, every day. Normally my mask is full of makeup (even though I don't use much). Since I started using this, there is just a slight hint of makeup transfer from my nose onto the mask. It truly keeps your makeup in place. I am impressed. Ordering the full size now.
Rach from Maryland
This stuff is so amazing and keeps the skin looking moisturized and healthy.
Left my skin felling dry.
Nettie1970 from Wyoming
I am a 50 year old woman and this made my skin feel dry.
I LOVVVVE THIS PRODUCT
Dakota from Goffstown
I got this product as a sample in one of Ulta's bags, this product is absolutely amazing. It's very light weight, a lot goes a long way, and it leaves my face feeling smooth and clean. I have brought the full size product, and I'm excited to try other products from first aid beauty!
Absolute must have for summer!
Lindsay M. from Fallston, MD
I got this in a free gift bag from Ulta a month or so ago. I hadn't used it until this morning. I applied a small amount of this over the face must I use every morning, and was instantly in love. I have a very small amount of unevenness in my skin tone and this evened it out perfectly. I only put a small amount of concealer under my eyes and that's it. It's perfect for days like this because it's hit, y'all! I don't want a full face when I'll just sweat it off by lunch time. This is perfect. I'm going to purchase the full size later today because I need it. 5/5 would recommend!
Not for me but may be for you!
MNJ from USA
This is a sweet-smelling product that I really wanted to work for me! It was a little oily for my skin. Under makeup it separated and by itself it just didn't sit well throughout the day. I sometimes still try it at night or when I'm just spending the day at home. I won't repurchase but I'll use up the bottle in time. Hope this helps!
I would buy this product again and again!
AngIe from Richmond, IN
This product keeps my skin hydrated and moisturized. I can wear it under my makeup or alone.
Meg from Detroit
I have sensitive skin and am obsessed with all things coconut, and I can't say enough good things about this product. A little goes a long way to keep my skin hydrated, and this keeps my face feeling fresh without seeming overdone. I've been buying this for years and tend to wear this on its own (no makeup necessary), so it is the holy grail when it comes to glow-y goodness.
My favorite primer
Pete from Wisconsin
I've been using this primer for several years, and it's my favorite primer hands down. I've used several high end and drug store primers, but none of them have hydrated my skin and made my foundation last as long as this primer has.
Mcgoo from New York
It's great! Just leaves streaks if you don't let it sit before applying foundation!
I've tried them all
Barb B from Houston TX
I have at least 20 tubes/bottles primer/cover up for blemishes, included that many samples. This was one of my samples that was a true winner!! I have an acne scar on my skin that's quite pronounced. If you noticed age, I'm getting the old lady hairs on the chin ( I know TMI) anyways this product covers my blemish without caking, flaking!!♥️ I can believe all the products I went through to find this one😒 lady give this a try & stop spending
