Most Helpful Positive Review I LOVE this primer!
So I have never used an Ofra product before, and honestly hadn't really heard of them. I knew the name but that was it. I have extremely dry skin, but make up moves like a salsa dancer on my face and I have a really hard time finding something that keeps my skin feeling hydrated and not showing the dryness but also does a good job of keeping my make up in place. I also HATE the feeling of silicone based primers and so I am left with very few options. All that being said, I am crazy about this stuff! The packaging is not my favorite; I hate square bottles and putting the lid back on. But I do like the pump aspect. The formula itself is nice and creamy, smooth and gives a nice radiance to my skin. It went on like butter over my moisturizer and didn't get tacky feeling. As soon as I put my make up on I saw a difference from my regular primer. My make up looked smooth, blended amazing and creased less. Even my concealer... which gives great coverage but I have a hard time getting a nice texture from. It also pretty much stayed in place and on all day, which is a rarity for me. I have only been using it for a week so I have yet to see if it makes me break out or anything, but usually I will have some kind of sensitivity by that point so I'll say it's probably good for sensitive skin! Will definitely be purchasing!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Prime it up with Northern lights
I tried this primer several times with and without makeup, I have very dry skin so I don't feel it's the best primer for me, but if u have oily or combo skin I think it's a very nice primer. It makes your skin matte but over doing it, also has a tacky texture when u first put it on which is not my fave but again I have dry skin so I like a more dewy situation, I do feel it made my makeup last longer when I used it with makeup but without I didn't love the matte look it made me look dull. Over all I think it's a good primer and would def recommend it more so if you don't have a dryer skin in my opinion. Thanks to bzzagent & ofra for letting me try out the product!

Well I only used it once cause I've literally not wanted to touch anything for a while. But when I did use it it helped my dry forehead, evened the feel of my skin out and I think would be perfect under makeup. I look forward to slaying my fall and winter glam soon as I get my urge to use my makeup again! Thank you Ofra! #sweepstakes
Love this primer

Never thought I would fall in love with a primer that wasn't Smashbox Photo Finish and then along comes Northern Lights! Absolutely poreless and perfect. Keeps makeup looking great all day even in the Texas humidity. Will quickly become a holy grail.
one of the best primers I have ever tried

Ofra Northern Lights Primer
Alicia from Florida
I am not someone who often uses a primer, as I rarely wear a foundation either. The Ofra Northern Lights Primer helps to smooth out my skin to make the foundation apply better. It doesn't feel heavy on my face and it applied very easily. I love the look of the packaging as well, the square shape is very sleek looking.
Kat from Maine
This highlighter has a light consistency and goes on smooth with a nice finish. The shimmer and highlighting effect was very pretty and simple to achieve. I would purchase this product and use it in the future.

It leaves my skin radiant
Smooth and non sticky
Bee from Cincinnati
I love how this goes on so smooth and dries quickly with no overpowering scent or sticky residue. It did make my skin smooth and helped my makeup stay on longer. I loved the way it shimmered in the bottle but I didn't find that it made my skin look any more luminous so that would be my only complaint.
Sha'Nita from elmore al
This primer lotion dries to a satin finish and creates a smooth base for your makeup with shimmer. I wouldn't wear this to work daily but in the summer with a lip gloss .... its perfect.
Not good for oily skin
Lisa from Charlotte,nc
I had a bad breakout after using this product. Also, this did not help control oil.
Glow like the Northern Lights
Hello_Emy from Texas
I've been fairly dry lately and a lot of products have a tendency to look cakey or emphasize my pores, but this primer smoothed my skin and provided a bit of moisture. I found that even without makeup this product created a blurring effect which minimized the appearance of my pores and my dry skin. I was afraid this product would be too shimmery but it actually just provides a nice "lit from within" type glow. I feel like this product helped my makeup go on smoother and kept it from melting off in the Texas heat. I would recommend this product. I received this product in exchange for my review but I would purchase it in the future.
Drea from McAllen, TX
Wow this primer is amazing! It works well to leav your skin dewey and looking fresh even in the harshest heat. I live in a very warm dry atmosphere so this primer helps my skin look and feel good!
Ale from Houston, Texas
I really like this primer. It is affordable and easy to purchase since the brand is found locally at ulta. The formula works really well and is just the right amount of sticky for your foundation and it does not break it up, it lasts all day. The main thing I'm not a huge fan of is the packaging. When I travel this is not the primer I take since the packaging is bulky and large.
Jujucorona from Fresno, CA
Received this and really tried to give it a try. I really didnt like the feel of it or the smell. Also, I didnt really like the glitter effect it gave on the skin. Not sure if it was just me but i didnt really like it.
Jackie from Tennessee
The packaging for this product is really cool, and the color of it is pretty as well. I found it to be a bit watery, but overall I think it's a solid primer.
Lindz from Fontana
Great primer! Works really well on my face. Not oily like most primers. Great for eyeshadows!
A definite WIN!
thedeirdre from Fairview Park, OH
This primer is fantastic! It is super lightweight and moisturizing. It provides a great base for foundation. I have used it with at least three different foundations and have had no issues. I also like to use it alone when running errands as it gives me the slightest glow and evens out my skin tone.
Jc from United States
I didn't like the primer. It didn't act like a good cushion for under my makeup. I do not recommend it.
Very subtle and good quality!
Suzanne from Cincinnati
To be honest, I was expecting the primer to look shimmery on my face like MAC's Strobe Cream, but it looked very natural and subtle! After applying makeup over the primer, it did have a satin feel and my makeup stayed in place throughout the day, very well! I would definitely recommend!
Gee from Las Vegas
I don't usually use a primer in my make up routine but OFRA Northern lights primer changed that. It's awesome and would continue to use it.
Amazing Looking Skin!
Shortyjane from Arkansas
This Ofra Northern Lights Primer made my face feel so soft and also I don't feel like my pores are just like "HELLO". I feel like my skin looks younger, softer and it just feels good and I think I look pretty good now at 43.
Ashdahlgren from Atlanta, GA
I was very excited to try this primer... however, it left very little to be desired. This primer comes in cool packaging, seems like it would be moisturizing when you first pump it out. But no. This primer absorbs directly into the skin and doesn't leave it feeling hydrated, luminous...nothing. Just disappears. I would be okay with this if it helped make my makeup last...however it doesn't. I almost feel like my makeup lasts for a shorter time when I use this product. I've tried three different brands of foundation with it only to keep having the same issue. Unfortunately I would not recommend buying this.
Lisa A from Los Angeles
This primary didn't perform any miracles. It didn't make my skin glow, though I can't see how it could underneath my full coverage foundation. I do like that it goes on matte, however it doesn't prevent my face from becoming oily during the day.
