Rated 4.55 out of 5 stars
I first bought this in December and picked up a backup when they were having a sale after only a few weeks of using it. I NEVER use up all of a makeup product before it expires or I get bored of it, but I used every last drop of my first tube and just last week started my second. It's so smooth, so glowy, so hydrating. It smells fantastic. It's fun to use. I mix it with foundation, with other primers, bb cream, anything. I wear it alone or under makeup. When I'm traveling, I use it as my sole face moisturizer. The only thing I would ask for is for SPF to be included. I show this to everyone I know, and they have all loved it and purchased it. YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS PURCHASE!
I really thought I was going to like this from all the recommendations and reviews I saw but I don't really care for this primer. I haven't had very good luck with first aid beauty products. They just dont tend to work well with my combo skin type. They seem to be more targeted toward drier skin types from what I have used. The first thing I noticed about this is the shimmer. It's a thin lightly tinted cream and it has tiny bits of mica in it. Not anything glittery or sparkly but it makes my whole face look very glowy. I'm dont like my skin having a super glowy or dewy look/feel. It just feels uncomfortable on my skin and tends to make me super oily in my t-zone through out the day. I was also under the impression that this had some sort of blurring effect to the skin. I can confirm it does not blur the skin at all. It actually emphasizes texture and pores because of the glowy nature of the product. It does say it's a priming moisturizer. But this is not the type of product I could use without putting some sort of foundation over. Even just some powder to dull down the highlighted look. It does wear well under foundation and powder. It keeps my makeup in place all day and I stayed relatively matte without any touch ups. It is really easy to use too much and if you do it will start to clump up and looks like chunks of a cream highlight randomly all over your face. I'm glad I tried the sample size before I opened the full size because this product is just not for me. It doesn't work well with my skin and is the opposite of what I look for in a primer or moisturizer. If you like the glowy skin look and have a drier skin type this would probably be beautiful on you! But combo/oily skin with texture doesn't play well with this product.

I have used this product for years. It gives a very glowy, moisturized finish. I use it after washing my face and prior to applying makeup. perfect balance of moisturizing/priming.

I've been using this primer for 2 years now. I have repurchased it and I find that it leaves my skin so supple and healthy. It gives the perfect base for full face of makeup. *see photo* After a funeral in the hot sun, my makeup stayed in place. I love wearing it after i do my skincare routine, for everyday. I feel more put together when im wearing my coconut primer. I Have combo leaning dry skin

I really like this product however, i have acne scars and huge pores so i need a little more blurring effect. Smells great and really moisturizing

I like this primer on days that I feel my skin is more dry than usual and could use a little extra love. It's slightly smoothing and keeps my makeup on for hours

I received this product as a sample years ago and I haven't stopped using it since! I am very oily and live in a hot climate so I actually just use this instead of foundation in the summer. I can definitely tell when I don't have it on. My skin looks dewy and glowing when I wear it!

I received this primer as a sample in my Ipsy bag. I fell in love instantly. I've tried quite a few luminizing primers, and they can never get it quite right, until now. This primer gives me a dewy glow under my makeup and it stays in place all day long. It's not heavy and gives just the right amount of moisture. 10 out of 10 in my book!

Love the smell and how easy it is too apply. Great product!

I continue to come back for this product since I first ever started using it. I was looking for a good under make-up moisturizer, and face primer, that would not interfere with my MAC make-up application. This hit the nail on the head, and once I received it, and smelled, it, I knew no other moisturizer primer would do after that. There is a plus in it not clogging the pores of my face as well. I wish it was in a larger amount, so that I did not have to always use it sparingly, and could be more generous daily. I love the glow that it gives my face, and it makes you have a glow on pictures. Enables my concealer to adhere flawlessly, and does not gunk up the make-up brushes. Winner!

I got a sample in a beauty box. Takes very little to cover my face. Keeps skin soft and makes makeup last ... truly forever. I love it and I'm buying full size. I know this is a great product.

i absolutely love this moisturizer and have been using it since 7th grade. im a sophomore in high school this year and i still love it. i have very sensitive, acne-prone, and combination skin and this works amazing. sometimes it does absorb too quickly so by the end of the fay my skinncan feel pretty dry but i started mixing this with the ordinary hyluaronic acid and the mario badescu hydro moisturizer and my skin has never looked and felt better. i always repurchase everytime and i would definitely recommendto anyone whi has dry or combination skin!!

Ive never had a skin reaction or acne in my life. I used this and a day later my skin was burning and then broke out in acne everywhere. Im 34 and only have had an ocassional zit every once and a while until i used this product. It was also piling and rubbing off all day when i was wearing it.

Eli S from Brooklyn
This is my favorite primer for everyday! I love how hydrating and glowy it makes my skin look, and it has the perfect light texture and consistency. I will consistently be repurchasing!
Kathor from Richmond, Virginia
I apply a thin base of this fabulous product, then I mix it 50-50 with a full coverage liquid foundation. I apply the mixture with a sponge for a light, yet buildable coverage. This is a great product alone or mixed with your favorite foundation!
Michelle from Chicago Ill
This primer makes your foundation peel off. It's like you are applying glue before foundation. I tried it with different foundations and alone but ended up throwing it away. Terrible primer. Don't waste your money.
Jugi from NJ
I purchased this on a whim, from a beauty blog and am so glad that I did. It prepares my skin for makeup application without leaving my face greasy or shiny. The moisturizing properties keep my face silky smooth and hydrated all day.

I rarely wear makeup because my dry skin makes it look cakey, but when I use this under my foundation it really helps improve the appearance. Sometimes I even wear it alone. Creates a slightly more even tone to my skin.
Milly from Los Angeles
My foundation looks so nice now that i finally got the right primer/moisturizer
Krista Maria from Texas
This is the best primer on market. I've used so many and they always feel greasy or cause breakouts. I never go without, keeps makeup perfect for my entire 12 hr shift. It even looks great alone! It appears dewy on my skin has really nice light coconut scent, feels soft like like velvet going on my skin!
Pam from Madison MS
This moisturizer is light and perfect under foundation. The slight tint of color makes it great for days that foundation is not wanted.

i've had this for so so long and it still hasn't run out. i use a little every day and it doesn't feel greasy or sweaty at all plus it smells really nice.
CMS from Michigan
I have used this primer for such a long time and today as I came to reorder I realized I had never reviewed. I have older, dry skin. I love this primer for several reasons: it smells amazing; it dries quickly and isn't greasy; and it gives the perfect surface on which to apply foundation. It creates a smooth surface that works with just about all my foundations. I highly recommend it and hope it works for you like it works for me.
kim from Chicago, IL
I like how this worked with my foundations, felt smooth and applied nicely. But I felt like this kinda irritated my skin a bit and if applied too much, would make it oily. Also sat on the skin a bit heavy, but again, it did make all my foundations look great and stay on. Mixed feelings.

its okay not the best but does its job. doesnt irritate my skin , but it does make me look patchy
