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.

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!!

Smooth as butter
Laura0anne from Lee's Summit, MO
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.

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.

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 absolutely love this stuff and will never not be using it w my makeup. Using this primer w my Estee Lauder foundation takes every line out of my face. 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!
TLC from Tucson, AZ

I luv this. My skin feels so smooth and it makes my makeup look amazing. I've even wore it without makeup. I highly recommend it.
LibbyN from Princeton, WV
i love this primer. it is the best primer I've ever tried. i actually received a free sample of it and loved it so much that im ordering some. it really fills in fine lines like nothing else I've used before. i love it..
Holly from Wrightsville, PA
This primer makes a noticeable difference to me with how my foundation looks over it. This is hands down the softest skin product I have come across in years. I use it under makeup and alone. It makes my skin feel so good
Mrsbrown1412 from Philadelphia
I like this primer it provides an even canvas and works great with Double Wear liquid and powder foundation. My only gripe is that they don't give us enough product for the price. I use a dime-sized amount and then sometimes add a little extra on spots that need pore filling. there should be more product for the price or either drop the price down some because it's not going to last very long with daily use.
Just as described!
Virginia from Cumming ga
Love this! Never used a primer before this but so glad I got it. My foundation goes on so much more smooth and naturally.
LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Julie from Rowlett, Texas
Love this primer. I have used about 10 different brands. This one is hands down the best.
Smooth is true
Janiceann from TN
This primer indeed makes my face feel very smooth. Foundation goes over it smoothly as well.
THE BEST PRIMER
No more lumps and bumps! from Indiana
This is, by far, the best primer I have ever had. I bought this with the new moisturizing foundation Estèe Lauder recently released. My skin has never felt so smooth and with the foundation my skin looks glowing and smooth. They were 100% correct in naming it the Universal Perfecting Primer, because that is EXACTLY what it does!
vivij from DE
It makes my makeup look better and it lasts for so long
