Most Helpful Positive Review Great Primer
For the longest time I used to buy primers that were matte and poreless. However, later on after actually getting to know my skin type I cane to an understanding that yes I needed something that would hide my pore but at the same time was pretty hydrating. I was a bit skeptical at first about trying because I didn't believe that it would really work with my skin. It's been a week now of using this primer and it actually works! It wears nice on my skin and hides my pores nicely while also keeping my under eye area pretty hydrated and not dry-looking. The consistency of the primer is also non-greasy and very lightweight. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone out there that has the same problem as me. Only down side about this primer is that the application process was a bit tricky since it dries down quick, where I have to hurry and spread all over my face. Other than that the packaging is very cute and great for on the go! Absolutely love the mirror too!!
Most Helpful Critical Review I love Glamglow as
I love Glamglow as a company and I was very excited to use this primer. That being said, because I have combination skin, I do not think this product worked well for me. I will start with what I liked. This primer did work really well to minimize pores and give the look of smooth skin. I also LOVE that it has 6 types of acid, including glycolic acid which is fantastic for your skin. I like that this primer has a spatula scraper included to get out the product with, and the packaging is just beautiful. Now here is what didn't work for me. Being combo/dry (especially in the winter when I tested this) this matte primer did not work well for me. It accentuated any dry patches that I had on my skin. The matte look did last all day, and I think that if you have oily skin, this primer would be absolutely AMAZING for you, but if you have dry skin, I would probably try something else.

I love Glamglow so I decided to try this out when I found it on sale, and I am so happy I did! It give a slight blurring effect on pores, feels amazing almost like a skin care cream. It kept makeup in place and honestly just felt amazing on my face. I will definitely be buying again!

This product has alot of top claims to fill. The gray color worried me but it dissipates into your skin. Initially it feels like a oily consistency but as you apply it and spread it out it does end up drying into a matte finish. It does blur out some of the lines and pores. Not as pore filling as the Tarte or the benefit versions. But definitely worth a try. This is just a first impressions review. I have yet to see any long term effects.
sabrinaf1641 from Morgantown, WV
it's an ok product I guess. the label says best if wiped off with a tissue and rub remaining in. but it has a brownish color so I recommend washing it off. I'm not really sure if it does anything or not
Come thrrrruu Glamglow!!!
danielalxander from Wilton Manors, FL
This was actually better than I thought it was going to be. It totally filled and blurred my pores, kept my face feeling matte through a night out! 10/10 recommend!
not worth it
francescal9 from Commack
If I could give this zero stars I would. First off this didn't even last me a month.. usually primers can last me about 5 or 6 months. For the price a lot more product should be given. The smell isn't great and I don't see a noticeable difference with using this under my makeup. Don't waste your time or money!
angelicaf9 from Barrie , ON
AMAZING , I love the colour of this product too - it doesn't burn tingle or sting on my face , it does an intense job as brightening and just filtering my skin , I would recommend to you as all glamglow products are amazing !
This mask works. You
moniqued24 from Toronto
This mask works. You will see results in 3 weeks. My results were less acne and no breakouts. Within use of the first week I felt a strong tingling sensation upon application. However, once the mask begins to dry the tingling fades. I have sensitive skin and it does not burn my skin. I also use this as a spot treatment for stubborn pimples. I apply it overnight when I use it as a spot treatment.

Love this! I had low expectations for some reason and i was so pleasantly surprised!
Love applying this directly
cynbsn from Aurora, IL
Love applying this directly with my moisturizer and my sunscreen. This primer doesn't have a scent and if it does I probably just have never noticed it (which is a good thing a#in my opinion at least). Definitely clarifying and also it helped control my oily spots throughout the day. I feel like it is a bit more on the expensive side and it's a minimal amount of product. I bought it once and liked it but because I can't use it everyday (due to limited product) I probably won't be buying again. There are other primers that can do the same thing on the market for a lower price.
Omg! My Favorite Mattifying Product!
mistyc36 from Irving, TX
I love this! I actually wear it everyday, over my skincare, to keep my combo skin under control. It doesn't dry out my skin at all. I even use it when I don't wear makeup that day. I feel good about it because it works to clarify my skin and keep blemishes away. It works wonders at mattifying my skin and I'll definitely be repurchasing. Keep in mind you only need a pea size amount so it lasts a long time too.

I have not used this primer however I have used the Glamglow spray primer and I think it's a great product. It keeps my face looking fresh and my makeup intact.
echamp0508 from Omaha, NE
I received this from influenster and I questioned it at first. I thought that it would get into my pores and make me breakout. I was completely WRONG!!! I love this product and would recommend

toreyw from Washington, DC
This primer is the perfect consistency and helps even out your skin tone. It has a natural finish but I do find the packaging to be a bit bulky and awkward. It's easy to blend and a little bit goes a long way!!
francinep1 from Irvine, CA
I received this product complimentary of Influenster and I am in love with it! I have combination skin and this has worked wonders with my BTW foundation. It reduces my pores and maintains my oil appearing after hours of wear. Since it is an oil controlling primer, I like to set my makeup so that my skin doesn't look so dry or cakey. This primer also makes my smooth very silky and smooth! After 6-8 hours of wear, I notice that my nose was not as shiny as before and my makeup was mostly intact with few patches around my cheeks but not noticeable. The package is a little bulky but that's manageable.
Would definitely recommend!!
uniquelymarina from Studio City, CA
This has truly turned into one of my favorite primers as the smallest amount of product goes a long way and truly reduces the oil build up on my face throughout the day! I would definitely recommend buying!
heyverona from Brooklyn park , MN
I liked this primer! Super cute packaging, loved the mirror and the applicator for this type of primer. I do not have super oily skin but it worked very well to keep my face matte and minimize the appearances of my pores as I wore my foundation all day.
I'm in love
annek8996 from W Bloomfield, MI
Guys this primer is literally amazing I tried it out for a couple weeks before reviewing it because I really wanted to see if it would make a nice effect on my skin and it honestly did my pores look amazing with and without the primer on now super happy with it
I love this primer.
grade8guru from Ontario
I love this primer. It feels so nice on my skin, and the packaging is stunning. It makes my makeup last all day
clarify while reducing pores
erikad6 from Burnsville, MN
I was scared that this would be too matte for my skin because it has "mattify" in the title, but I was surprisingly wrong. This helped smooth my pores without feeling too silicone-like (which I don't like). I also didn't feel as guilty wearing makeup through out the day because this priming has clarifying properties! Even though I have dry skin, I do get oily near my T-zone so this primer was perfect for long days. My makeup looked the same from 8 am until 11 pm!! Definitely recommend.
Great product, but not right for my skin
optimusjoss from Sioux City, IA
Exactly what the title says. I received this product from influenster to try right before Christmas, and it has been a fun two months trying it out! This product has a cool design and a super useful mirror built into the compact. However, I experienced significant breakouts from this product, and it left my skin feeling oily, so it's just not for me.
it lives up to the name!
breonnaaiman from Clarksville , TN
This primer really shocked me because I was thinking it was something simple and just basic but I would say it went on smooth but had this cooling effect that I feel really helped by skin calm down when it was irritated. It also left a subtle glow to me so if I wanted I could use this apart of my skin care routine.
stevenl9c50 from San Antonio , TX
I loved this product. It was mattifying but NOT drying, which is my typical downfall of products like this. I loved that it smoothed the appearance of my scarring from acne on my cheeks and paired well with any foundation I put on top.
Hated it at first, LOVE it now!
kaykatd from San Diego, CA
This primer is the type of primer that needs the products on top of it to bend to its needs (if that makes any sense) I made the mistake of using a matte foundation on top of this primer and it led to my skin looking so bad. Pores, dry, flaky, dull, tired; nothing good. That's the picture I've attached here so you can see what it looks like when you use the product wrong! Definitely use this product with a more hydrating, dewy, or velvety formula of coverage product and then set with a powder only if you NEED it. This primer does its job of oil control so well. I go on top of this primer with one that fills in pores to help foundation lay better on top of it. The 2nd photo with me smiling is the primer under better conditions. If you have super oily skin, I say give this a shot. Or, if you love luminous foundations but get oily when you wear them, try this underneath.
