Most Helpful Positive Review Finally a chemical free moisturizer!!!
Ever since I realized that most of my skin care contained atleast 1 'bad for skin' chemical I went on a hunt for 'good for skin' products. My friend had just given me some skin care from one of her subscription boxes, so this was actually still sitting in the box untouched after I tossed my products that were chalk full of chemicals out! I was stunned to read that all of the ingredients were good!! To the best of my knowledge, this does not contain anything bad for your skin! I was very happy because I am having a very difficult time finding any products that aren't fragrance or Phenoxyethanol. I used to see ingredients like, Phenoxyethanol and would think that they were just fancy names for something natural.. NOPE! Phenoxyethanol is a chemical and it is actually is really bad for you if you ingest or inhale it and if it is ABSORBED INTO YOUR SKIN!!!! I read that if you use it multiple times a day, everyday, it can cumulate and cause blistering on the skin, dry skin (of course) and cause damage to your central nervous system. It is especially dangerous for nursing mothers and infants! This is just 1 toxic ingredient out of (I think it's) 122 that commonly found in our skin care, makeup, hair care, etc.! The FDA has banned products with these ingredients in Europe, inyet the U.S. still thinks that it's okay to sell to their civilians! There are some safe brands though, thankfully!!! After some research, I've learned the brands Shea Moisture, Tata Harper and Cera Ve have a ton of natural products without harmful ingredients. This is the only Touch In Sol product that I have looked up so far,since I already had it. I have also noticed that when I stopped using the products with harmful ingredients that my skin detoxed and it seems like it's an ill side effect from the natural products but it's quite the opposite! Your skin is getting out all of that yucky stuff those chemicals did and once your skin balances out you will be amazed at how good you look and feel!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review I would never buy this product ever!
OK where do I begin so I was extremely excited to receive this product and I have been working with it for weeks and doing lots and lots of research I don't know if it's because I have mature skin but it does not work for me! It overly moisturize my face and makes it to where my product does not want to stay on at all even if I use a thin layer the night before or right before I do my make up routine it just makes everything messy and I feel like I have a bunch of gunk in my face not only that it gave me blackheads in my pores on my face which I never ever get! Like I said it may work for younger women and it may just be my skin I cannot speak for everyone but I will say this it does not work good as a primer it may look great for the first 30 minutes but after that it is all downhill and I would not recommend using a setting spray with it or any other types of moisturizers It overly moisturize my face and makes it to where my product does not want to stay on at all even if I use a thin layer the night before or right before I do my make up routine it just makes everything messy and I feel like I have a bunch of gunk in my face not only that it gave me blackheads in my pores on my face which I never ever get!

I have a YouTube channel where I have talked about this particular item a bunch of times I keep trying to give it a chance and unfortunately it just does not work for me like I said maybe twice a month as a light moisturizer but that's it not as a good face primer I'm sorry I am all about good face primers you're better off buying too faced hangover RX to be honest with you. Just my opinion.

Connie from Kcmo
I started using it on my feet after having put
It away for few months, got in subscription box. I just thought it was another moisturizer
And looked to thick and greasy on my hands
So started putting on my feet overnight. I wouldn't want that glossy look, looks sweaty to me, but to each their own.
Nothing like it.
Mel Bit from St. Louis
The best. I've tried so many primers and I finally found the one. There is nothing like it out there. My make up goes on so much better and more even
Caitlin from New Mexico
I got this in my last BoxyCharm and I love it! It really does melt into your skin and gives you that dewy glow. I've used this as a base for my foundation but I prefer using it alone! Also, I usually stay away from scented products but this has a really nice fragrance.
I love this stuff so much I already bought my second bottle
Shelby from Pelham NH
I use it with or without foundation. I love how my skin looks even without makeup
Didn't even use, when opened there was hair.
Lucas from Nevada
THERE WAS HAIR IN THE PRODUCT WHEN OPENED. What the?!
My New Go-To!
elizabiz405 from Georgia
I absolutely am in love with this product! My sister gave it to me and I think it's going to be my new go-to! It smells like an orange creamsicle bar, and it leaves my skin hydrated without feeling oily. I normally don't like scented skincare, but it just feels so amazing!
Makes you look flawless!
Valpalgal from Phoenix, Arizona
I have never been impressed with a primer until I tried this. My sister gave it to me because she already has a ton of primers and I am so glad she did! This has renewed my faith in primers and now I completely understand the benefit of using them because this primer made me look poreless and flawless! I have oily skin but I didn't experience any issues using this mind you I live in Phoenix, AZ. A little goes a long way and I intend on buying this again. Totally worth the price!
Jess from My
Perfect for Dry skin to make your make up look flawless. Put a light layer on before your foundation and wow!
Pinkypie from al
i really like this for dry spots. i cant use it all over my face because its very greasy and oily. it still works great on dry spots. i have actually been using it more as a makeup remover. it takes all of my makeup off and doesnt sting like other cremes do. i really do like it ..just a tad bit goes a long way
Slaythedaykk from Riverside
I am definitely a full glam person. But I do have my days where I go more natural and love a Glowing look. Make up glided on perfectly. I am super oily but this did not clog my pores
THIS IS THE BEST EVER!!!!
Katherine Mae from Melbourne, Fl
OH MY GOSH! This is the BEST primer I have ever used in my life! Let me just say, it is small but MIGHTY. A little goes a long way for sure! I put this on about 10 minutes before I start applying my makeup and it sets in perfectly to my skin leaving a great canvas for my foundation. I have dry/combination skin, I get oily from time to time and this stuff gives me the perfect amount of hydration and doesn't make me oily at all. So happy I have this a try!
Motherof2boysandlovinit from Spanish Fork, Utah
I was skeptical of this product but it had good reviews and my friend recommended it so I decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did. My skin is so dry. I can still feel that it is smooth in the morning.
Amazing for dry skin
Colarina from New York
I saw a review on this by liorasmakeuploves on YouTube. Took a chance. And I'll never use anything else. I ALWAYS have dry patches. ALWAYS. they are completely gone and my skin is perfectly hydrated. A tiny bit goes a long way. I will absolutely repurchase
Pretty Filter Glassy Skin Balm
Glassy Skin Balm from Decatur, AL
I love the smell of this product, it's not too strong of a scent yet very pleasant smelling. I also like the feel of the product on my face.
New faveorite primer.
Tori from Seattle WA
I have dry skin but I use lots of products to prevent dryness. All the more popular primers I've tried are meant to smooth pores and makes my skin to slippery/buttery. THIS one though Oo la la it's amazing. So glad I got it on sale.
Wouldn't buy this
Baby from TX
I got this product in boxycharm and it just leaves my skin so oily but it does make my make-up stay on a long time...
Chanty from tulsa, ok
Absolutely love this product! I got this in a boxy charm and now i have ordered it 2 times since. It makes my face nice and smooth.
Works amazingly on my dry skin as both primer/moisturizer
K. u w u from California
Explicitly matte foundations/primers don't work for me, they make my skin look dried out and flaky, but after receiving a sample of this in a Birchbox - I had to get the full-size. Works for me (and my mom, she keeps wanting to dip into it). Keeps my skin very moisturized but doesn't feel greasy. Works excellently as a primer for me (honestly works so well that on extra clear days I really don't need foundation) , my foundation sits very well when I use this. For reference I use benefit's soft blurr foundation or sometimes Maybelline's fit me.
Only downside is the size of the tub, was expecting a little bit bigger. Still very worth it for me though, a little goes a long way with this product.
LuluB6979 from Virginia
I would use this on days that I did not use face makeup. Its a great moisturizer for my skin. Goes on so smooth and not greasy. Gives my skin a fresh dewy look.
anna from New Jersey, USA
this product is pretty good for using under makeup or just by itself, but it just makes my face feel greasy and doesn't completely soak into my skin. it smells really nice though! i will still continue to use it but i just won't buy it again.
Awesome for my dry/combo acne-prone skin
C Cooper from Michigan
I LOVE this stuff! I got it in a boxycharm and was hesitant to use it at first, but I'm SO glad I did. My skin is acne prone, sorta dry, and sensitive. My biggest problem with other primers is that they all cling to my dry patches eventually. This product is moisturizing and dewy, though it has more of a "natural" finish by the time I'm done with foundation and powders. My makeup stays on much longer when I wear this and never looks crumbly, flaky, or patchy. It's great!
fresh and smooth
jessica from Santa Rosa, CA
this left my skin feeling fresh and smooth. has a very light and clean scent.
amazing for dry skin
Lori from Kansas
Got this in boxycharm. I wish they would take primer out of name because people think they can only use as a primer, which is unfortunate. This is the most AMAZING repairative skin balm I've ever tried. I had these dry patches around my chin that nothing was helping. Out of despair I tried this and the next day the dry itchy areas were GONE. I will definitely repurchase.
Pkid from Cranston RI
I got this in a Boxycharm and had it sitting in a bin of products for months that I'm passing on. I LIKE Touch n Sol primers but none I love so I rather not even open it. I don't know WHAT made me finally try it and I'm SO glad I did!! Something about this makes your skin look like plumper and hydrated. It is thick, feels it on the skin but not in an uncomfortable way. I can totally see why they use the word glassy and balm in the name. I have Dry skin , dehydrated skin. It almost makes my dry skin look oily ish and I'm kind of loving it. If you don't message this into your skin evenly it could cause your foundation to look patchy. It does have a scent. I like it but it's perfumeish. Doesn't seem like you get a lot quantity wise. I've been also mixing it with liquid illuminations and so far so good. The packaging is cute to look at. I use a flat Luxy foundation brush to apply. . Color of the packaging is a Pretty pink. It almost looks upside down. I'll definitely purchase this when I run out.
Tahreem900" from LA
I hate products that claim to be dewy but don't not help with that at all and this is one of them after a dewy foundation, little bit of powder , or none and concealer the dew ha gone only good thing about this is it will last a long time I also like how it's hydrating I have dry sensitive skin they have so many hydrating/ dewy primers save yourself the money and buy those instead
