This is a fantastic primer for several reasons. It is very affordable. I think i paid £4 for my jar at Christmas and there's still over half of it left. It out performs many high end primers I've tried such as Smashbox and Benefit. This keeps my make up looking fresh for a good 8 - 10 hours which is great. It almost feels like it has cooling properties that awaken the skin and freshens it up in the morning.However, there is quite a strong fragrance that I would prefer it not to have - but that's not a huge issue. If you dislike fragranced face products though you might want to give this one a miss. Also the packaging is slightly annoying - it's a large (but oh so pretty) glass jar that is hard to carry with you when travelling and is extremely unhygienic as you're dipping your finger into the pot each morning and loads of air is getting in to the product. But for £4 can we really complain?Definitely reccommend this primer - I use the one for dry skin with the pink lid. I noticed I was getting dry patches on my face around lunchtime before I started using this but since discovering this primer these horrid dry patches are no more. Thanks Nivea!

I love this product! I have the sensitive version (the pink one), i bought it for around 4-5 pounds on sale (40-50 kr.) and I live in Denmark so that's cheap for 50 ml. I does what it says, I get a better finish and my makeup lasts longer. The only con is the packing, it's a glass bottle which makes i heavy to carry around... I much prefer tubs :) But other than that I am absolutely loving this product and will properly repurchase it once I run out.

This product is so under rated! I have dry skin and have tried everything to stop my foundation from going cakey or flaking after a few hours.I have the dry and sensitive version of this primer and it's much better then the Bobby brown and smash box moisturising primers that I have tried before which give out after 4 hours.You just let it sink into your skin after applying it on your face and then applying your foundation as normal.Honestly this is now a must have product for me and my skin looks flawless when I use this as a base. The price is amazing too! It's defo worth trying for anyone with dry skin

I absolutely love this product. It feels very cool and refreshing when you first apply it and it really does help to keep my makeup in place all day.I use the type for dry skin and find that I can use this without a moisturiser if I'm in a rush or feeling lazy.Great product, great price - I don't think I would ever use any other primer again!

Firstly, just want to say I don't think there's much difference between the version of this primer for sensitive/dry skin and the version for normal skin. They've both worked exactly the same for me.I've had a lot of issues with makeup flaking off as I sometimes get very dry skin, but this primer helps a lot. My tip for people who are having trouble with it is to leave it to set on the skin for a little while. Once I've left it to "soak in" for a bit then I can basically apply makeup as if I don't have dry skin! My makeup stays on all day when I wear it, so I have no complaints, and have repurchased it a few times!

I honestly think this product sucks. I usually like NIVEA because it's good quality for a reasonable price and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin, but this primer is simply rubbish. First of all, it wasn't very hydrating - I even felt like it mattified my skin. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing - I bet this works great for people with combination or oily skin, especially in the summer.BUT the worst thing about this is that it rubs of when you put makeup on - I've tried this with BB cream on top, liquid foundation on top or powder foundation on top - there's always those little clumps coming of and it just doesn't look great. Not at all suitable as a primer. Would not repurchase.

This was one of the worst products I have tried in a while. I usually like Nivea products, which is why I have tried this one. I bought the one with a pink lid - for dry skin. However, this primer did everything but hydrate my skin. After an hour or so after applying the cream - even if not applying any make up - my skin was even drier than before I applied it. Not to mention that the primer starts peeling off when you put on foundation which makes it very difficult to evenly apply your make up.During the three weeks while I was using this product (before I finally threw it away) my face pores got really clogged and my skin was in much worse state and drier than usual (I usually have pretty clean skin). As I didn't change any other face products during this time I blame it on this hydration primer.

Really good primer, made my foundation look so much better and last longer, also made me skin really soft. Only bad thing was that it stings a little on my skin and makes it go slightly red, but that might be just me.

I bought this product a while ago as I had never used a primer before and trusting Nivea I decided to give it a go (also it had just been released over here making it cheaper ;) ) so anyways I bought it and I have to say it smells FANTASTIC! I applied it to my face the next day before putting on my foundation and it went on really well, made my skin feel soft and ready for the day ahead and i have to say it works wonders! Not only did my makeup glide on swiftly but it helped my makeup stay put all day which was exactly what i had hoped it would do, the best thing the packaging and product comes in twp ranges, blue packaging for normal skin and pink packaging for dry skin ( I opted for the dry skin as this is my skin type) and it can also be used as a daily moisturiser as a quick pick me up in the mornings. I would definatly recommend getting this product.Love,Emma x
