Most Helpful Positive Review Perfect Primer
I bought all three of the new primers and I prefer The Smoother by far. It makes my aging skin appear very smooth with almost no texture! My skin looks much smoother with The Smoother than it does with The Mattifier and The Illuminator. It feels soft, natural, and not greasy. I literally use a pea size amount for my entire face and part of my neck. It's very silky and easy to distribute. It's a clear gel that really smooths texture and eliminates lines for the entire day. It does not get greasy later in the day on me... some products do, this does not. It might be because I'm using the proper amount of product.
Most Helpful Critical Review The smoother
I recently purchased this primer although it goes on smooth and makes for an easy foundation application, within minutes of completing my makeup I look like an oil slick. Ahhh! Literally blotting my face all day and it don't even stop the shine. Not happy and would not recommend this product to friends.

I was heartbroken when UD discontinued Optical Illusion primer and never thought I'd find a product as good, I couldn't have been more wrong! If I'd have know how perfect this works alongside ELDW foundation I would've made the switch long ago. My foundation goes on very smoothly and this lasts and lasts with a beautiful finish. Don't hesitate, buy this!

I had never used a primer before yesterday. I will never use double wear without out it again!
As I squeezed a little dab onto my finger and applied it to my cheek it disappeared, like it wasn't even there. After applying to the rest of my face I though ok, well let's see how the makeup goes on. Wow, that's the 2nd thing I noticed. The makeup went on more evenly. That was at 5:45am. Off to work, super busy day, dash to the grocery store, home to make supper, went to the bathroom at 11:30pm to get ready for bed. That's when I realized I hadn't looked in the mirror all day. What I saw was the face I had applied 18 hours before. The makeup hadn't creased under my eyes or around my nose or above my lip. It hadn't slid off my cheek or wiped off when I blew my nose. It was still perfect, and I'm not kidding. It was almost creepy how perfect it was. I used the pomegranate cleanser (free sample, love it) and it all came off, no makeupy residue. This is an amazing product. Next test....the workout!

Something very wrong here. It was like jelly. It looked like Clear jelly. Customer service is sending me out a replacement. That's it, sorry we will send you another one. Kinda picky about primer and was looking forward to trying it. Now I have to wait even longer. I would think they could have offered me something other than sorry.
I will buy again!!

As I've gotten older I'm starting to notice that my pores are larger. The sales rep recommended this and I love it.

I am 43. Combination skin. I use this under my foundation and concealer and I love it! It doesn't flake or peel my make up at all. It made my makeup stay all
Day in place! It's amazing! I won't use anything else!
CM from SA, TX
This primer works great for my oily skin to keep my Double wear foundation in tact all day. I start with this primer, add foundation, and set with Double wear powder. Perfect combo for all day wear without the need to touch up all day.
Leaves skin soft

Leaves skin super soft and hydrated not like other primers that leave your skin feeling soft yet dry and tight

Not sure that I can tell a difference with this product 🤔

I recently bought a very luminizing foundation. and love the effect but it was showing pores on my nose and also some lines in the middle of my forehead. I tried finishing powder but after a few hours the pores and lines would appear again. I was ready to look for another foundation but then remembered this sample of the universal primer I had when ordering my moisturizer from EL. I have never worn primer before but tried this. It's so lightweight like nothing at all, but blurred the pores on my nose and the lines! Incredible!!

I've tried a lot of different primers. This one works very well!
Smooth as butter

This is another great product by EL! Pair it with your fav foundation and it will last all day. I appreciate the even/finished sharp look it provided.

Leaves your skin feeling light and airy not weighed down like most primers
Janet from Seattle, WA
I received this product as a sample with an order. I love it. It's amazingly effective. I'm now ordering the full size.
lance from Hollywood, Florida
I love this product. I use it alone because i don't need to use make up. Makes my skin tone even, minimizes my pores, gives me a matte look, and yes, makes me look young(lol). I'm 41 and the 20 kiddies always compliment me on how my skin looks. I always give them handy advice to take care of their skin.
This absolutely makes your skin feel so soft

I recommend this product to every person I know. It's amazing. It really has made me feel better about myself. I can't brag enough on this primer. It works!!!
The Smoother works!
Viviana from Aurora , IL
I use The Smoother before the foundation and it works really good, my finished makeup looks very natural and smooth, it works well diminishing the pores.
waste of money
*lills from ca
does not rub on well on skin and did not make my make up last like other way cheaper primers I have used before. also does not make pores any less visible
I recommend this product!
