I've been using this product for about a week now and am very impressed by how well it keeps my skin matte without drying it out. A pea-sized amount covers most of my face after I've applied my daily SPF. I concentrate it in my oiliest areas, around the nose, front of the cheeks, centre of the forehead and chin. Then I apply my mineral makeup (either Bare Minerals matte or Meow Cosmetics Flawless Feline). The result is a beautiful smooth finish that lasts eight-ten hours with only minor touch-ups. Since I've been fighting oily and acnes prone skin for more years than most of you have probably been on earth (I'm 68), the HA Blur is a welcome addition to my makeup arsenal. Definitely HG status, I've already ordered again, and I'm tempted to try other Deciem products. Not vital, but I love the bright pink/white tube which makes it so easy to find on my vanity ;-)

I just tried this today so I can't say if it will break me out or if it's long lasting. What I will say is that this definitely blurs my pores! I normally use the porefessional which works under all my foundations. Today I used this instead and my first impressions are that it blurs my pores like nothing else. I applied it after sunscreen (just on nose, forehead and cheeks) and it did a really good job at mattefying the skin. The foundation I applied over it I've never worn before, so I can't really say much about what difference it made as a primer. I will however say that if it wears good throughout the day I will use this on my no-makeup days to blur pores and create an illusion of absolutely flawless skin. (I don't have any pimples or dry patches at the moment so by flawless I mean that it blurs my pores, and kills the shine from my sunscreen).

I forget to put it over the fine lines around my mouth and under my eyes so I will be back with a review on that too. I also want to try mixing it in with my foundation, although I don't have any high expectations for that because no blurring product I've tried has looked good mixed in with foundation.

Let me be the first one who hates it.
It's very thick and very silicone. I love silicone feel, but I hate how thick it is.
I apply the thinnest layer I can over my sunscreen, my face becomes extremely dull. When I touch my skin after applying the product peels off. I took another sunscreen, applied it over and tried to follow again with the makeup. Same story. It's so wrong! I never had a product that was peeling so badly (it feels like a peel off mask).
On the bright note, it really seems to be hydrating despite extra flat matte look. And it did not irritate my extra sensitive skin.
Maybe it works only on the bare face... Sending it back!

I'm a guy and don't wear makeup but this thing is great for special occasions where I don't want my skin to look oily. It really leaves my skin matte for hours. Would recommend.

I'm not a huge primer person as I don't like to wear a lot of foundation (just simple a moisturizer and sunscreen girl), but I thought I could use a little bit of blurring to cut some shine and make my skin look a little smoother. I liked the idea that this had HA in it to act as moisturizer a little too, so I took the plunge and I'm so glad I did! I am so happy with how well this works as a primer for my sunscreen, It makes it go on so much better and prevents my skin from looking oily and shiny while wearing this! It also takes away that gross coated feel that you get from sunscreens later in the day after you've had them on for a while. It does have a fairly pungent plasticey smell, but it's gone once it dries. It is also a little pricey, but I stocked up while they have it on sale for $9,

This has become my HG primer for every day makeup. :D This stuff works better than some of my higherish end stuff (Becca Glow, Hourglass) that I now only break out on special occasions (though I still mix it in under my eyes because it fills in the lines so well). I love my Hourglass Primer and I'm not going to be replacing it (I love the dewy glow), but it definitely doesn't have the blurring and staying power like Hylamide.

I use it every day for work. It makes my drugstore everyday liquid foundations (L'oreal colour match) that used to give a cakey look on my dry skin amazing. I wouldn't say it feels moisturising but it does somehow cover up any dry patches pretty well when normally my foundation would highlight it and that's a big bonus for me.

I like that it fills in the lines under my eyes pretty well. It definitely has a blurring effect which is what I wanted from the Benefit primers but didn't really get.

I do feel like I have to use quite a bit of the product - although I like the consistency and it absorbs pretty well I feel like it doesn't spread as much as I'd like it to.

So far it's working miraculously well for me but I'm interested to see it's staying power when the weather gets warmer!

Edit: After liking the blurring effect I get from this and the moisturizing soft results my skin gets - i'm returning this since as a primer for $19, it doesn't do what I need it to do for the price. I figure i can buy the $5 Ordinary primer and use that with The Ordinary moisturizer + HA for $5 and get a similar result (maybe not as much blurring, but the primer does blur). That's $10 for 2 oz (primer + moisturizer) vs. 1 oz of the HA Blur for $19 plus shipping. Not worth it. I'm not impressed by the Hylamide brand, but since The Ordinary products are much cheaper, I'm trying those instead and return all but one of my Hylamide (primer).

My skin: clear of pimples (sensitive, acne-prone/cystic/redness), melasma, scars. Shiny oily skin that makes pores stand out big time from daily use of topical benzoyl peroxide gel after washing face. Top with daily moisturizer. Was looking for a product to help calm the shiny residue I get from BP gel. Do wear light foundation/BB cream M-F.

i have used this product twice and each time i am blown away,
1. it takes away the shine from my "non oily" spf lotion, and creates a pert, clean (not flawless) finish for my bbcream, bbcrean looks better and lasts longer w this product, even in humid weather i don't have to really touch up with tpowder,after14 hours, skin looks as it did when i left the morning in the morning.

primers used to make me break out. nothing of the kind is happening to me now.

Unfortunately, I just don't really get this product. I bought it because of the incredible reviews on this website and Deciem's, but it really isn't doing much for me. I have pretty oily skin with a lot of blackheads and acne spots in general, so pore minimizing products are something that I love and almost always incorporate into my routine.

The issue I have with this is I don't know whether to use it as a primer, moisturizer, or makeup product. As a primer, it performs almost identically to the Ordinary's High Adherence Silicone Primer which is way cheaper ($19 vs. $5) and it doesn't blur pores as well as products like Benefit porefessional. It doesn't have any coverage in it so, unlike other reviewers, I don't see the point in just wearing it on its own to provide a more "blurred" effect. I just really didn't get that from this product and I would rather use a pore blurring primer since those do the job much better. Also, I want to add that as a primer it didn't really contribute to the longevity of my makeup, it just made my skin have a slightly more even texture (which again, could be easily achieved using the $5 product from the company's other line).

As a moisturizer, it just really isn't that....moisturizing? Anyways, I'm confused here as the company just lists it as a "finisher", which in theory I like because it gives consumers more creativity with their product, but in the end it just left me confused.
