Most Helpful Positive Review Beautiful, Glowing, Hydrated Skin
I was really excited to try this. I love face serums and loved that this could be a primer as well. It also had tons of good ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, goji berry, acai, etc. so it hydrates plus giving your skin all sorts of good antioxidants. It absorbs quickly and leaves behind smooth skin. It isn't sticky or tacky, which I sometimes get with other serums. The serum does have a scent, which is stronger than some other serums I have at home, so those who are sensitive to scents might not like this product. When I received it, I loved that the bottle was plastic because I'm really clumsy and I'm prone to drop (and break) things XD There's a slight shimmer to the serum that blends out to invisible when you apply it. I use this serum daily not just as a face serum to give my skin a boost in hydration, but under my makeup as a primer and also on days where I go 100% makeup-free. This gives my skin a gorgeous glow and a smooth appearance. I absolutely love this and the price is even more amazing. I will definitely be keeping a bottle of this constantly stocked!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Horrible!
I am upset I was fooled by the good reviews. Nothing about this primer was good. The dropper could hardly pick up any product. I had to hold it in & slowly release the button after 30 tries it finally picked up product. It smells like granny perfume so pungent even after time passes. I usually never mind fragrance but the high alcohol content and perfume became a big issue. My face shriveled up so tight and dry when I put makeup over it and I waited a long time in between. I had to wipe off everything and moisturize so much to bring my skin back to comfort. It made my makeup look disgusting, and basically felt like an alcohol solution that dried my skin up. I had a feeling it wasn't going to be nourishing based on the smell and I was right.

Yes and yes

Discovered this product and haven't looked back, so believe this is bottle 4 love love it.
That's a NOPE
Tonya from Roswell, NM
The smell is disgusting, unless you like that fake rose smell. And you can smell it all day. There is no glow either. Waste of money. It's getting tossed. Such a shame.
Middle aged mama from South Florida
It's just ok. The pump doesn't work. Not worth full price but for the great reduced price, I'll use it. Live and learn. Not a repurchase for me.
MrsH_11 from Texas
The packaging is decent, but the pump doesn't work. The product itself is okay. I was using the Elf glow primer which is $10 less and I feel that gave better glow than this product. I'm going to finish it, but this will not be a repurchase.
It's just Okay
Lovely from NC
This is just okay. It's not a bad primer. I don't see the glow at all. It's does it's basic job. The dispenser is AWFUL! I take the lid off and just pour it on my hand at this point. I would not buy this at full price or recommend that anyone else does. I bought it on sale during 21 days of beauty and if you plan to buy this then do the same.
Do not buy this
jenny from San Jose, CA
The smell is overwhelming and it resembles something you would buy for a 5 year old in a fake makeup set. Complete waste of money, I wish I could return it!
I bought 3!
Em from Hayden Idaho
This product is so wonderful for just that dewy fresh look, smells amazing and just overall is the best primer out there, try it! You won't regret it!
nasty smell, regret buying.
jenny from california
thank goodness i bought this on a sale because it's horrible. the smell is a horrible chemical that won't go away. it stays all day and is more watery than an actual serum. not worth the money.
Excellent - great for oily or sensitive skin
Ladyshowbiz from Kentucky
Superior product. A little goes a long way. Light, non-greasy feel. Great on skin before bed, before makeup. The only con is the horrible bottle and dropper design. I empty mine in a small pot with a lid.
Not as great as I expected
RPA from N/A
I was really excited to use this serum. I do feel like it has made my skin glow more and even my skin tone. However the serum is so thick that it is a struggle to get anything out of the tincture. There's so much product stuck in there that I'm losing a significant amount of product. Won't be buying again :(
I may buy again
Pam from Knoxville, TN
For the price, this product is ok. It does not give you that 'dewy glow' but it does make your skin soft. It also broke parts of my face out (it's the only new face product I had tried) it's also kind of difficult to use. I wish the top was bigger for the way it's made and how you have to dispense the product
THIS IS MY RIDE OR DIE!
MakeupQueen from Cincinnati
This is the serum EVER!!!! I have major dry asking issues and this stuff is magic. its smells great, and makes your skin soft and supple! even if you've had makeup on all day and need a refresh I just put a few drops in my hand rub them together and pat it on the areas i want to rehydrate or just refresh. it's also great if you've put too much powder or foundation on and it looks cakey, just pat a little in those areas and BAM! GONE!
Absolutely, would purchase it again!
Liz from texas
After cleansing and vitamin c serum I us this primer. Smell delicious! Goes on smooth and clean.
makeup lover from pascagoula, ms
use this under my primer and makes my makeup look really good. don't think it would work well as the sole primer as the name leads you to believe.
JoLeen from Glendale, AZ
Put on my face with fingers after washing my face at night or before putting makeup on in the morning
Love this product.
Buzzard from Lodi,Ca
Love the smell of this product and love that you can use on its own or use it under your foundation.
Netti from RI
First off the eye dropper didn't work right out of the box. Ok, I can pour it in my hand. Then there's no glow at all and its' a little sticky. If you have oily skin like m, it gets shiny part way thru the day. It's an awful product. Don't waste your money.
made me break out
Jess from New York City
im going to be honest. im not going to tear this product down but im giving it 1 star just cause it didnt work for ME. it made ME break out. i dont really have sensitive skin but it was weird when that started to happen. it did leave my skin soft tho.
Nessa from Whittier
Makes my skin look youthful.
Gives me glowing skin!
Ani from Oceanside
I'm 12 weeks pregnant and my skin is a mess from the hormones. Tried this on a whim and I LOVE it. It brightens my face and I like the smell (don't think it smells like grandma perfume). I still use benefit porefessional on top of it to smooth pores but I definitely feel like my face looks brighter and more youthful. Will buy again when it's all finished! Like others said the dropper is not the best, but I can get it to work ok.
Dispenser is trash
Okay for the Price from Memphis
I bought it a few weeks ago and since it said it could be use as a primer that's what I use it for mainly. It works well with my oily skin,is good it makes the foundation last a little longer.. one down side it's the dispenser it's useless and is basically just trash. I wish they had made it with a pump instead... I will buy it again once I'm done with the one I have... For the price it's okay... It's almost as good as the farsali unicorn essence. If you're looking for something not as expensive this will due , just remember the dispenser is TRASH !!!! If they fix the problem I would give it a 5 star.
KAF from the south
Best thing about it is that ULTA will refund & help me find another
Love it. The smell, the feel. It's a staple.
Le from Grand Rapids, MI
I use it after I put on a face moisturizer.
Decent Serum not a primer.
JustAGirlfromJersey from NJ
It def isn't a primer rather just a serum. It does have a fragrance to it which I don't hate but don't love either (hence the 3 stars).
However it is a decent serum. Makes your face feel smooth and bright without the stickiness.
If you are not looking for over the top try this.
Purchase when it's on sale tho!
