Most Helpful Positive Review Great for my dry skin!
I am so careful with what I use on my face because of medical reasons, my skin is very dry. Foundations seem to draw attention to all my dry areas no matter what moisturizer I use. I was THRILLED when I tried this Butter Believe It! Putty Primer. I was afraid it would be heavy or shiny but it is just the opposite. It feels extremely lightweight and so smooth. I love the scent also. I allow it to sit on my face for just a minute or two while getting my makeup ready to apply. It is perfect for me! I wish I had discovered this a few years ago. Thank you for such a wonderful product!
Most Helpful Critical Review Pills up with any skin care or sunscreen underneath
I can't make this work for me any which way, as it pills up on contact with any skin care or sunscreen underneath, even when I wait 2 hours between applying those and applying this. It's a deal breaker because I always always wear sunscreen. This texture is not like other putty primers I've tried. It seems to melt into an oil as soon as it warms to the skin, which sounds like it would be good - but I can't make it work with the rest of my routine. It is heavily fragranced with the usual coconut scent that PF is known for.

I am new to this line of cosmetics. I started out by trying the 'Rose' All Day' line, specifically the mascara. I now have the mascara, the lip color pencil, a serum, and I started branching out and trying other products. This Primer IS LIFE! I have almost perfect skin (I'm sorry haters) and I rarely have a pimple, dryness, few wrinkles, or redness. I have an issue with makeup looking cakey or spongy after application. This primer has CHANGED THE GAME! I love it! And I even wear it alone!!
I love the Muru Muru butter. Thank you.

I was glad I decided to try this. It's such a rich and moisturizing butter. It's not greasy and is lightly scented. I will keep buying this product.
Best putty primer!!
gymboyincali from Fresno California
Literally I try many Petty primers!! All of them have worked incredible. But this one is incredible the smell is incredible I love the smell when I put it on my face it covers a lot of my imperfections. It stays on all day it keeps my foundation and powder on all day I highly recommend this primer if you don't like using liquid. This is coming from a guy that has a couple scars and it actually minimizes a lot of them. I can't wait to try out the pressed powder I just need to know where to get it.

This butter believe it putty primer is amazing... Its super easy to apply, it is like butter on my face , its smooth and I can apply my foundation easly. It leaves my face flawless and my makeup rocking!!

If you have oily skin stay away from this primer just terrible! My foundation never settled with this primer even after using setting powder and slid around my face, I had to take my entire face off after two hours.
AMAZING FOR DRY SKIN!!
K from Chattanooga, TN
I tried the elf putty primer and it made my makeup separate and look awful! This primer is so much better. I have very bad dry skin and this honestly made it feel so soft. It makes the foundation (butter believe it foundation) last all day and look flawless! 10/10
Smells great but
40andfab from Pasadena, Texas
I've used tons of primers and I love the smell of physician formula products and thought I'd give this primer a try. At first look it reminded me of the elf putty primer but that's where the similarities end. I found this primer to be oily, and greasy and did nothing to make my makeup last. I have combo skin and used my L'Oréal freshwear foundation. I would not recommend this product.

This product is amazing! I have combination skin and always struggle to find primers that are not oily or drying. This is moisturizing and make my skin looks amazing! I 100% love it and recommend it. Feels like I have the perfect skin
Ktroeck24 from St Louis, MO
I've found my new favorite primer! This primer is great; it helps my makeup stay on all day with no cake-like feeling on my face. It feels light and smells amazing! Would definitely buy again, although I think this jar may last awhile!!
love this, BUT it's a little slick
vmla from la, ca
i really enjoy using a putty primer, i didn't think i would but it makes my skin feel so soft and smooth and even. the only problem is, that it stays a little slick so my makeup tends to wear off sooner- this is due to my own skin type, but still. i found that setting the primer with setting powder, then going over with foundation and setting with powder and spray worked for me
Easy to use!
meldi from Philadelphia, PA
I didn't expect to like the primer as much as I do! It has a pleasant feel, and applies easily to skin. As someone with uneven skin, the primer does seem to smooth out my skin. I put powder foundation over the primer with no issues. The primer also smells super lovely!
Chelsbk21 from undisclosed
It made my face feel nice after I put this primer on. It was a little difficult to get some out of the container and put it on my fingers. I was surprised by this because I have dry skin and thought it would make my makeup look really cakes and dry but it didn't. My foundation looked smooth and it smells good.
Tiff123 from North Carolina
I normally don't use a primer. I've just never seen much purpose in it. It doesn't have a scent to it, and it does go on smooth. I didn't really see that it made much of a difference for me, but if you are a fan of primers, I think this would be a good buy!
Colec from Orland Park, Illinois
PhysiciansFormula should be considered as a must have as a great make up for your normal day. I admit, I use a higher priced brand for work and tried the product and shade for secondary use. It's light- the shade is consistent and overall coverage is great!
Not for me
Lfol5828 from Memphis MI
I tried to make this work but it's a no go for me. It seems a bit greasy hence the word butter in the name. It doesn't seem to go on smoothly for me even when I wait awhile to put my make up on.. it might work for other people
Kimmm from undisclosed
I am a huge fan of Physician's Formula, specifically their Butter Bronzer, so I was super excited to give the primer a try. First, I LOVE the smell. Every time I use it I am whisked away to a tropical island. Second, this primer is easy to apply; it warms up in your fingers and a little bit goes a long way. Third, I do notice that my makeup glides on easily and stays put when using this product. I also like using the primer on its own to give my skin a bit of a glowy and blurred look on no-makeup days. I will note that it doesn't fill in pores so if that is what you are looking for, this may not be the right product for you. Otherwise, I love this primer!
Butter & Putty
Gardengirl from Tennessee
I have used Physicians Formula Beauty Products for years,so when I saw Butter Believe Putty Primer I knew I had to give it a try. I have combination skin plus I am 67. I thought this primer was way too much butter! When applying my foundation it felt like it was going to slide right off my face. For that reason I am not a fan of this primer. My makeup did stay in place all day .
Britt bratt from Fordyce Ar
I've tried a few different primers and so far this one has been the best. Its been great keeping my makeup in place and not running. Recommend this for sure. I plan on buying some more in the future..
Not a fan
Allyson4632 from Tampa
I am not sure if this was the product or my skin type but it's just not for me. I found that it just made me feel little oily and I really didn't like that period I do have combination skin so that may have had something to do with it but overall just not something compatible with my skin and the preference I wanted to feel like.
msmini14 from Beaufort, SC
Butter Believe It is a great product, easy to apply and smells good. I have been using Physician's Formula BB cream for many years now, so I decided to try this. I used the Butter Believe It multiple times and then I applied my BB cream without it. When using the Butter, I noticed that my BB cream applies evenly and I don't have to use as much. On the other hand, when I am not using the Butter, it takes me longer to apply my BB cream and it doesn't look as smooth. I also read that other people had issues with pilling, but I did not have this experience. Equally important, I use a facial cream before hand, apply the butter and the BB cream with no issues; I do allow dry times between each application. The Butter Believe It smells good and is easy to apply. And yes, it is like butter (oily) once the applicant rubs the product between the fingers, but it isn't overpowering. Overall, I like this product and I plan on continuing using it.
Afshin from Brooklyn NY
I'm not an expert when it comes to makeup. I can't blend in foundation and my skin looks uneven after applying it. This is a wonderful product. It smells great. After applying it on my bare skin it was ready for the foundation. It moisturizes and prepare your skin for a long lasting and fresh looking makeup... I'm in love with it.
Chas16 from Columbus,Oh
I love that this primer applies on my face nice and smoothly . It feels very gentle on my skin as if I have nothing on it at all ! You can wear this under your make up or even alone if you just want to smooth out some fine lines and it moisturizes my skin ! I really love this BUTTER BELIVE IT , PUTTY PRIMER
Love this primer
Meghanl from Washington DC
I love this primer! It makes my face look super smoothe under my foundation. I use it as directed and it makes my pores go away! I had high hopes and this lived up to my expectations. Can't wait to wear again
Kelly007 from San Diego, CA
I have used expensive primer for years but recently started looking for something different. Since I turned 40 my skin has changed and I didn't think my old primer wasn't doing the trick. I've always liked Physicians Formula products so I thought I'd give this putty primer a try. I love it, goes on so smooth and my foundation went on really easy. It gets even better when it 1/2 the price as my old primer.
Tonya5930 from undisclosed
I like this primer. My most favorite thing about it is the scent, it smells amazing and kind of like an old-school sunscreen. This makes your skin so smooth and greatly reducues the look of your pores. It helps your foundation stay on for a lot longer than using no primer.
