Rated 4.46 out of 5 stars
I LOVE this serum. It feels so good on my skin and my makeup stays all day without getting dry and cakey by the afternoon. I'm almost out and I can't find it anywhere. PLEASE don't discontinue this product!
I have dry skin and I use the Trumatch nude tint serum. This product did not work well with the tent it separate , cakely and patchy.
I've tried working with this product in applying in many different ways Many times. It just did not wanna work with me.

I love that this is light weight and water based.

Found a good TikTok review on this saying it worked and smelled nice I got neither disappointing. Kinda sticky but not in a good way

I like this better than the ELF power grip primer. Has a scent to it but it is pleasant (if you like blueberries) and not over powering. Makes my makeup LAST. Gives a nice glow and you could wear it on its own. Worth it especially for the price point.

Absolutely love it

Love this serum, especially for the price. Combined with a moisturizer makes my face feel so soft and smooth. I have naturally dry skin so this product is a dream. Working on my third bottle now. Highly recommend.

I love using this to hydrate the skin before applying foundation. I have dry/combo skin depending on the weather and this helps with a smooth foundation application. It is even a bit tacky and provides a nice grip for the foundation.
Smell is not over powering, in fact I hardly notice a scent.
Not sure how this would react in a skincare fridge but I can see it feeling great when used cold in the summer months.

I love this. It's a good primer that smells nice and makes my skin feel softer.

no cons to this as far as how it holds up my makeup! it preps my skin before makeup and i use it along with other primers! adds a nice glow and hydration before foundation.

I'm new to makeup and I figured I would give this primer a go. Not a good decision. If you have sensitive skin I would not recommend this product. It made my face/cheeks turn red and I'm hoping it doesn't make me break out :(

I used to use Glow Recipe but they are so overpriced. This stuff is amazingly cheap in comparison and works just as well! It also does smell like blueberries which I love but the scent is very faint and you have to hold it under your nose to even notice. So the people that say it's strong or overwhelming, that is false. I'm sensitive to fragrance and this does not bother me. It also does not cause acne or irritation of any kind, it's the opposite and I find it to be refreshing and soothing! I just hope they don't discontue this!!

After using its made my skin super red and gave me breakouts all over my fave
Nat from Mt Washington, KY
I put this on before I do my makeup so it doesn't feel heavy. It really refreshes your skin and replenishes it.
Vidhi from Sevierville, TN
Do not buy this if you have sensitive skin because the fragrance will bother your skin. Aside from that, it's hydrating and does what it says. If it wasn't for the strong scent, I would've given more stars.
Gabi from Poland
I was sooo excited to get this primer serum cause of the good reviews, once i tried it i was disappointed, it made me breakout most likely because im allergic to one of the ingridients + the primer didnt even work and my makeup got off in like an hour.
Lauren from San Ramon CA
I have really dry skin and have a hard time finding something that keeps my makeup from cracking, creasing, flaking or just looking cakey or dried out. It's hydrating and plumping, yet doesn't leave a oily, sticky feel :)
Ann Marie from Alexandria Va
Love the texture of serum, i luv the way this smells! Its hydrating & renewing.
Kate from Chicago, IL
I love essence so really wanted to like this product. I heard mixed things about it so wanted to try it for myself. I have sensitive combination skin, but mostly oily, and have struggled with acne for a while. I was scared to put this on at first, but warmed up to it when it didn't turn my skin red or burn at all! This serum feels great and I would recommend it.
Karen from Massachusetts
It actually works to plump around the eyes!! It also smells amazing.
Stephanie from NC
Makes my skin feel so soft and smooth!
Roz from Charlton ma
Love this .. it's very thin & absorbs quick.. keeps my skin moisturized.. does not pull up, even layered with the glow serum & make-up
Dee from NM
I really like this primer. It keeps my makeup fresh all day!
Mital from Austin 78717
Love this product
Chloe from West Virginia
oh my god this stuff is actually amazing. I use it every morning to prime my face for my makeup, and every night after cleansing my face. It works extremely well as a makeup primer in my opinion and definitely keeps my makeup on the entire day, from the time I wake up at 8am to the time I take my makeup off around 8pm. It has also been an actual miracle for my skin and I will never be using another expensive face serum again. It keeps my skin so hydrated, prevents acne breakouts, and it honestly makes my skin glow. I feel so pretty without makeup now because of this :,)
Christina from Youngstown ohio
First off, very slight smell.. but it's nice, exactly like fresh blueberries. I use this at night mainly and it is very Spectacular! It does exactly what it says and my skin feels hydrated and plump! There isn't a "glow" like some leave. I have very oily skin and this product works the best!!!! Doesn't make me oilier or funny looking. It really does a Phenomenal job!! Will buy again
