Most Helpful Positive Review miracle in a bottle!!!!
in the summer my skin turns into an oil factory. previous I used a mix of Derma Doctor for my acneic skin, and tartes mattifying primer.
I took a chance when I met the nicest sales associate; who has one if the most amazing flower tatts. anyway; she recommended this primer, the juice CC to mix with my cover fx custom drops since the Tarte primer and Amazonian clay looked like melted cake face and gave me a new skin care routine.
this primer has helped balance out my oily t-zone.& it makes my skin look dewy and fresh versus the matte face I thought I was stuck with becuz of my skin type.
she also recommended the blemish serum, sensitive peel, the oil free SPF and apple cleanser. it's been 3 weeks and my skin looks SO much better. my pores aren't clogged, no new breakouts, even though hormone time is coming. thanks girl at Orland!!!!! and thanks Juice! I'm a convert for life!
Most Helpful Critical Review Better swatched than on face
I'm a new mum & looking for something to brighten my tired looking skin. I have super sensitive dry skin, so natural & gentle hydrating products are a must. I was so excited about Juice Beauty's new makeup line! I swatched the primer on the back of my hand & it felt smooth, soft, moisturized, & looked luminous without being sparkly. I applied it this morning all over my face & then did my usual undereye concealing. My face looked radiant & awake without sparkles (unlike BE Complexion Rescue) & my concealer applied same as it always does. However, within an hour my face started feeling dry & tight, maybe from the anti-aging ingredients? It's been 4.5 hours since application & although my face feels soft to the touch, I can't wait to slather on some moisturizer. The luminosity is gone & my concealed areas look really dry. I think this product probably works great for people with oily, combo, or slightly dry skin. And the new Phtyo-Pigment foundation swatched beautifully over the primer (so sad the foundation is way too matte for my parched skin). It's just not HG for me, which is so sad. I'll try some of the color products of this line (shadow, lip color) but I think the complexion products are unfortunately too dry for me.

This primer is gorgeous; I can't believe I've never heard anyone talk about this. I've been into glowy products lately and picked this up on a whim during a recent sale. Wow, it really does give you that 'lit from within' glow. I wear it alone or underneath makeup and it looks fantastic both ways. It is a thin, lightweight consistency that sinks into the skin beautifully. Now that I've discovered this hidden gem, I won't be with out it.
Love how this works!

I love how this feels on my skin. Absorbs quickly subtle illumination. Third bottle so I obviously love it.
Love this product!
Sophia from WI
I was recommended this product it's a primer and it's got a little shimmer so it can be worn just on its own. I love the shimmer I love how light it is. I do use a foundation but not so much in the summer but the primer everyday
Second bottle I've ordered
Chelsea Lynn from Anza Ca
I use this after moisturizer, before powder and if I need a pick me up in the afternoon for evening outing- I can quickly put more on and refresh my makeup- DOESN'T get cakey or sticky - LOVE this product
Good for Sensitive Skin
Dana from San Diego, CA
I just bought my second bottle of this primer and I am a big fan. I have sensitive skin and break out from different products easily, but this primer leaves my skin feeling super good. I use this as a primer before my foundation or i wear it alone and it gives me a subtle glow. It is not too much illumination but it helps my dull skin look alive!
Ash from California
I received a sample of this when I purchased other products from Ulta. This product comes out liquidy and it smells like a tongue depressor. One thing I did like about it was that it gave a pretty shimmer, however it is meant to be a primer and usually you put makeup over a primer. Personally I would not purchase this product.
Ema from Arizona
Love this foundation! It makes my skin look so nice and isn't oily or drying! It's the perfect combination! Also it has helped the texture and marks on my face go away after a while! Definitely would recommend to a friend!
Not that good
Meh from Maryland
I don't see much difference when I put it on. It doesn't hide pores or any imperfections, and I don't see my foundation blending any better with it.
I haven't looked that much into its skin benefits, so maybe it is okay with that in mind, but there are so many other primers that I've liked better.
Makes your complexion glow
Mrs. LCW from San Jose, CA
I love how this gives my complexion a subtle glow. Not over the top shimmer overly "hi-lighted" which is not for me. Just a slight light catching glow. Love it.
Juice Beauty Illuminate primer
Lee from CA
I normally love this line. However, this product did not work for me this time. You have to spread on face quick. Dries very fast and makes my skin look dry, even though I moisturized. Did nothing for pores. I would not call this a primer just an illuminating/glow.
Wanted to love, unimpressive for price
Andie from Pennsylvania
I've been doing A TON of research to swap out my products for non-toxic/cruelty free options so I gave this primer a try. Right off the bad I didn't love that there was shimmer in it because I usually try to mattify as my skin is naturally oily. When I put it on it just doesn't feel like anything it feel like it does anything at all. Actually makes my face feel a little dried out a tight. I can see that my face has a sheen to it from the shimmer but that's it. Doesn't blur pores, or have that texture that tells me it's going to hold my makeup in place. Unfortunately I can't justify the price with the results so I will be returning. The search continues.
A necessary product
Mamacita from Pittsburgh, PA
It's a tad pricey, but it lasts months! A small amount goes a long way! My skin soaks it up and I love the Light and Luminous way it makes my skin look!
Best. Primer. Ever.
Holly from Phoenix, Arizona
Best primer I've ever used, hands down. Has a great shimmer to it which makes for a phenomenal foundation to start with on your face. If foundation, cream or concealer are a little too thick or difficult to move around? No problem.... just add a drop of this primer. Slides on smooth, feels soft after it dries quickly, nice and thin and doesn't feel like my face is dirty or clogged like many other primers. Never cared for primer until I found this one. Love, love, LOVE!!!!!
Be careful if you have sensitive skin
CATL from Atlsnta
Had an in-store makeover with a number of Juice Beauty products. Two hours later my skin began to itch and breakout. It's days later and I'm still suffering from dry patches & irritated skin. Organic and plant based products may not always be good on all skin types - be careful if you have sensitive skin!
This Is Okay
Dark Squirrel from Midwest
This does have a bit of a luminizing effect on bare skin, but does not show through my foundation (I usually wear light to medium coverage foundations). However, it does seem to make my foundation wear longer, which is nice. So I like it well enough to use it up, but not sure I would repurchase.
Finally found a silicone free primer!
DomesticGoddess73 from Washington DC
I purchased this elsewhere but I have to say after a year of searching for a silicone free primer this one works amazingly well on my light toned, oily, acne prone, sensitive skin. Make up stays put all day (even in mid-Atlantic heat and humidity) and the illumination shows through foundation for a nice glowy, not greasy look.
ACMitchell from Savannah, GA
I love the matte effect without making my skin too dry or too oily. It is lightweight and does not have a strong odor. It applies smoothly and gives my skin a lovely glow!
Amazing primer for daily use
Bellabean from Tampa
Love this primer! Was skeptical that it would be too shiny or gold looking, but it's not at all!. Just enough illumination to give a dewy glow under foundation or even on its own. Really evens out my skin tone and hides imperfections. Doesn't flake or cake throughout the day, even during Florida summers!
Buy over and over again
Luv2shop from Phoenix
I buy this primer over and over again.
Wanted to love it
Organic makeup lover from Corvallis, Oregon
This swatched beautifully in store. It has the prettiest light reflecting properties but no matter how I applied my foundation, it slid right off with this primer. Maybe it'll work with drier skin types.
Stacey from FL
Ulta consultant recommended it and it is great, very light and non greasy
Sussieq172 from Texas
This dispenses the perfect amount each time and the product definitely makes a difference in how my skin looks. Now I glow!
Lynnae from Salt lake city utah
Will not use anything else.
Looks great at first.. afternoons not so much..
NurePaula from Spokane, WA
I was introduced to this product line after Ulta discontinued Japonese. I was matched perfectly to the correct color. The sales person sold me on the serum as well. I have been using for over a month and I notice in the afternoons, the product is flaky and cakey. I use with primer and setting sprays with a fine dusting of translucent powder. I have tried without the powder, but the foundation feels sticky. I just recently moved and this is the only foundation that isn't packed. I will be returning it.
My favorite primer
Joy from Ohio
I've learned I can't have a good makeup day without this primer. It is by far the only thing that dries down well and doesn't leave my skin greasy but also gives me a glow. Love it.
