Most Helpful Positive Review More than a primer!
I've been using this primer for about a month now and LOVE it. I'm a huge fan of luminescent type products (shimmer powder, laura mercier illuminated tinted moisturizer, etc.) and this product is a great new addition. It's not your typical primer in that it is a primer AND moisturizer AND brightener. My skin has been noticeably more hydrated, especially with make up (which has been something I've struggled with this winter), and I love using it as a standalone around the house when I don't feel like wearing make up. It makes my skin appear more evenly toned and also gives me that refreshed glow I love. Love it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Can't handle the smell
I like the feel of this, it is smooth but a bit heavy. I would not recommend using this and I thick moisturizer. I stopped using this because of the smell, it is so over the top cucumber. The smell will go away, but the initial smell is too much.

this is my favorite primer at the moment. the only thing i would change is that sometimes it appears greasy, but it does a great job at moisturizing
Best primer ever!
Kfeci from Plymouth, MA
I use this product after using the ultra hydrating oats toner. I've never felt anything so hydrating and makes my face feel so soft even after putting my coverup on! I use to use bare minerals hydrating primer and it was ok but nothing like this. Everyone should try this it's amazing!
Angie from CT
I just didn't think it was as good as "IT" product I like to use.

I wash my face then prep it for this amazing primer. Then put on my powder foundation.
Ordered online and the product EXPLODED in transit
Sadly No from FL
I was excited for this product but sadly it's all over my box and not in the tube anymore, it was such a mess.
LiNi from Here
Leaves my skin moisturized and not greasy. Not the BEST pore filler out there, but it works for my sensitive skin.
My makeup stays put !
Rahaom Israel from California
This primer right here though ! Literally my favourite. I've tried out many primers that would work well with my foundation and concealer and this is a winner ! I have other brands of primers I wear without makeup, but this one goes both ways. I'm only giving 4 stars because of the price, they could make the tube a little bigger. Or make the product for a nice size jar.
Amazing smooth base for makeup or to wear alone!
Dee from PA
I use this product when I want a smooth and even look before doing my makeup. It's also a great fresh start to the day for your face !
Hydration!!! Great for under the eyes.
Mary from York, PA
I use this as an under eye cream before I apply concealer. My skincare usually keeps the rest of my skin prepped and hydrated enough for makeup application. However I found my concealer looks much better when I apply this under my eyes and let it sink into the skin for a few minutes. Definitely will repurchase when I run out!
Skin Happy foundation not
SJ from Memphis,TN
This made my dry skin very happy, but it made my foundation look a little weird. When I wear this with a tinted moisturizer, it looks great.
Sen from Maine
I love this primer! It is much thicker, like a moisturizer, but it is amazing. It is not greasy, and provides great coverage. I have oily/acne prone skin and hasn't made me break out, and it lasts all day
Jasmine from Vancouver, WA
I liked the way the primer made my foundation look, but the only issue I had was application...this primer leaves flakes all over my skin when I'm rubbing it in...almost looks like dry skin flakes.
Would only use without foundation
Christa from NJ
This is nice enough when I use it on its own but, ironically, when I put my foundation over it, it doesn't sit right and the foundation sort of cakes up and causes dry looking patches. Not a fan
My new go-to primer
Smartladyinct from Wethersfield, CT
I've had a lot of issues using primers in the past 6 months. I have used Estee Lauder Double Wear with no issues, and then suddenly by mid day my skin looked cakey and dry. Using this primer adds a beautiful layer of moisture which allows the foundation to blend easily and look even without much effort. And no more drying!
Michelle from San antonio
This product is extremely moisturizing and leaves your skin with a beautiful light glow! Can be worn alone or under makeup.
This is a fantastic find!
Smartladyinct from Wethersfield, CT
I have used the same foundation and primer for years. In the last few months, my foundation started to look dry and flakey in certain areas by mid day. Something that never happened before. I tried several foundations that were more dewy, but the same thing was happening. I went to the store frustrated and GiGi was ready to hook me up. She immediately took me to this primer. It's dewy, moisturizing, provide a wonderful blanket of goodness to put my foundation over. The first time I tried it, I was amazed at how fantastic my face looked. By midday, and even end of day, no dry patches or flakey foundation. Made a huge difference in my self esteem. Best part - it comes chocked full of hyaluronic acid.
Broke me out
Adel from Johnson City, TN.
I bought several products in a special value package. It contained the face cleanser, ultra repair cream, lip hydration balm, face moisturizer, and this primer. I love ALL the products except the primer. First off i love the cucumber smell but every time i wear it my eyes itch and i get red bumps around them 😢 can not use
Best Primer EVER
Ultaaddict13 from Overland Park, KS
Love this primer, and you can't beat the price! I have spent much more on other primers and never noticed a difference in my makeup by the end of the day- this makes my face look as good as it does when I first apply makeup. Smells amazing, looks amazing! I am sold.
It is not bad
Sue from Portland, ME
I would purchase this again.
Made my makeup feel caked on
Laura from Alexandria, Va
I've liked many other products from this brand, but didn't care for this primer. I felt extremely aware of my makeup starting about an hour after I left the house and couldn't wait to get it off later. It just felt caked on even though I wasn't wearing much.
Made my dry skin matte
Lee from NC
I wanted to try this primer for a long time. I have very dry skin so I expected this to make my skin feel so juicy. I put it on after I had already moisturized and prepped my skin. As soon as I applied it, my skin looked matte. When I applied my luminous foundation it was very cakey and was sticking to dry patches I didn't even have before. I returned it very quickly.
Makes me shiny
Autumn from Tulsa, OK
Did not like! Made my skin super shiny and oily, my Dermablend foundation just slides right off. No thank you!
Stella from Houston
gives skin a nice dewy luminescence even without any makeup on top it looks beautiful
Moisturizing and gentle!
Shannon from Oxford, IN
I sampled this from my ipsy bag and have been so happy with the results! I've made the tiny sample bottle last at least 3 months, so a little does go a long way! I also have dry, sensitive skin that's very prone to breakouts and this primer has not caused me any problems. Yes it's thicker than other primers but it's also a moisturizer and it leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth! Some have mentioned the smell but honestly I don't even notice it. I'm buying a full size bottle since my sample finally ran out!
