Most Helpful Positive Review Comparable to High End Primers!
This primer is a work horse! It comes in a green bottle, pump dispenser and plastic top. You get a good amount of product for the price. The product dispenses easily and, to me, has a faint smell of cucumber. Nothing overwhelming so if you are sensitive to scents I think you will be okay. I also feel it is suitable for all skin types. The product applies with a slight blurring effect, feels fresh on the skin and just a bit tacky, which is a good thing. It does not have a silicone slip. My makeup applied beautifully and lasted through my 11 hour day. No settling in lines, no problems with pores, just a smooth fresh face. I have been using this product for two weeks now and have found that I reach for it over my high end primer consistently. It just works so good. The only drawback is that the product does tend to settle in the pump dispenser and form a small dry ball of primer. So you might want to wipe the dispenser clean after each use to avoid this. It is just a small annoyance that I just overlook and it does not affect the performance of the product. I will be repurchasing and have replaced my other primer with this one. Highly recommend!!
Most Helpful Critical Review DECEPTIVE MARKETING!
Ok so I bought this from target and ran out after using it 3 times. Thinking this was odd I opened it up to scrape what was left. The bottle purposely doesnt say the amount of product. The amount you buy for six bucks is about the size of a qtip head. Not to mentiom the silver cap is weighted to make the bottle feel heavy. You might as well buy high end makeup. Because if its six bucks for a drizzle imagine if the bottle was full. Dont buy!

Terrible smell on recent purchashes
Judy from CA
I have used this product for a long time. I discovered it when I was looking for a less expensive primer. There was an odd smell on one I attributed to old product but the smell on the new one is much stronger now and I can't even bare to put it on my face. IT STINKS SO MUCH. I will not buy this anymore, I can't even imagine what awful ingredient is causing the smell, it's almost like a fuel product.
This product really make my skin feel nice!
Luuuuuuu from PA
I bought this and was really nervous, because I have V E R Y sensitive skin. I was shocked to find how much use, and work it did for my skin. Thanks e.l.f < 3 (it just takes a few pumps before you can get it out luvs)

There?s actually not a lot of product inside and feels kind of heavy on skin but it does keep your skin nice and refreshed. good for dry skin
MandiInOkc from OKC
I got this because I have very dry and sensitive skin. I can't wear matte foundation due to the dry skin I only use dewy. long story short when I apply the primer and then my foundation it looks like I have greasy skin. maybe with matte foundation it could decent. but the smells is super disgusting but it will go away
Wmma from Ontario Canada
I bought this and I do love the primer, but the clear plastic comes off, and you can see up the middle of the blue container, revealing you actually only get a very minimal amount of the primer. The container makes it look like you get so much more.

My foundation looks flawless with it!
Goid primer. Only 25% of bottle filled. Open

Elf Soothing Primer - New Fan
Joifull from Richmond, VA
Brought A Week Ago I originally brought this primer as a base for my makeup but have found it to be wonderful as a nighttime cream. After cleansing my face, I put some Elf Soothing Primer on my face and it feels wonderful. I wake up the next morning with my face feeling silky smooth and with smaller pores. Going to try the Elf Poreless Primer for my makeup. For now, I love this Elf Soothing Primer.?

Khali from Boston, MA
I usually wear a little concealer every day to cover up dark circles but I noticed when I dont wear primer it creases. This primer made the concealer go on way smoother and it hasnt creased since.
Ariana from Colorado
Kinda smells bad but that doesnt last. I tested it out on my hand in store before i bought, but i would use this as a lotion. very moisturizing and softening
Love love love.
Gabby from San Diego
I apply two pumps of this before my foundation. I put my makeup up on at 6am and by the time I'm home at 5pm it still looks amazing. Love this stuff!

Mbabe from Rialto ca
I honestly did not like this primer at all it does nothing for me i got this one in accident i usually wear the Elf poreless primer
I like it but it has its ups and downs
CskawElfsBabe1 from North Carolina
I like it but it has its ups and downs overall I give it 5 stars but depending on your skin texture you can't wear it under a lot of different makeup foundations with some foundations it'll have you looking beat and some it'll have you looking a little shinny as the day goes on so it all depends on your skin + the foundation you decide to wear that day.
Great for everyday use
Lamea from New York
I wear a full face of makeup everyday at work. It's difficult to find face makeup that works because of my combo skin. My T-zone is extremely oily, while the rest of my face is dry and flakey. So I wanted something light yet effective under my foundation and on top of my serums and spf moisturizers. This works great. Helps my foundation go on super smooth and keeps it on my face through the hot summer days.
Nebs from Tracy CA
It's ok for a primer but how is no one else talking about the smell of it. It smells like straight up plastic. I can't stand putting it on my face just because of the smell.
not for me
Meyers 42018 from spring tx
I used this for a week and all I got really out of using it was hydration and good feelings. other than that, it didn't really hide my acne pores and it was to oily. im already very oily skinned. lesson learned.
Bought this on a whim and so happy I did.
Flareon29 from Ohio
My foundation looks beautiful on top of this. Blended out so easily and reduced the look of my pores on my cheeks. Spread and set evenly when I applied it to my skin. Really can't beat this for the price.
Not a fan!
Chloe from Washington
I do not like this primer! Although it might be a little soothing, it doesn't do enough! I do not like the pump because sometimes the product comes out lumpy... Also, this doesn't work well with some of my foundations by making it stick to certain places.
heather432019 from Texas
I really like this primer. Makes my makeup last all day. I see some people are saying that it has a smell but mine doesn't smell at all. Overall, this is a really nice primer. Would definitely purchase again.
pretty good primer
chloe from oregon
helps blend makeup really well and feels good on my skin, only the smell is sort of unbearable. i've gotten used to it at this point, but it is definitely annoying at first.
