This is currently the best primer in my collection. Makes my skin look and feel smooth and hydrated. My makeup looks amazing on top of this product and never looks or feel dry. It is one of the...

I wanted to like this product, and I usually have good luck with Smashbox (the Studio Skin 15-hour foundation is a favorite), but it's breaking me out something fierce -- I suspect isopropyl...

Thankfully I bought the travel size version. I don't have anything good to say about this really. I have dry/ combination skin. It's as if you've put no primer on whatsoever. It feels moisturizing...

This is more of a primer than a moisturiser, and not a very good one at that. The thin liquid leaves a dry, slightly tacky feel on the skin. I did not notice any more longevity or oil control when...

It is not hydrating. The smashbox primer oil is way better.

This has such a cult following I felt sure I was missing out on something, so when I found a 30ml bottle in a cosmetics outlet store for $29.50, I knew I had to give it a try! I'm so disappointed...

I have very oily and acne-prone skin, and this is probably the best primer I have ever used. I received this in a Sephora gift box for Christmas, along with other items. It comes out a very thin...

This is one of the few primers I really like. I usually just go in with a regular moisturizer, but I find that this gives my makeup a little more grip to the face. I have very dry/eczema prone and...

I have dry/eczema sensitive skin and this is a really great primer. The product comes in a pump bottle and it's a very thin white liquid, which would let you think that it isn't very moisturizing...

I have dry skin, and found this to do a very poor job at either moisturising or priming. I would not repurchase. Their now discontinued blue Hydrating Primer was excellent, this is a dreadful...

So far so good. I have very dry 54 year old skin and didn't think I would like it because it is so thin and almost more like a serum. I was surprised that it did the job of moisturizing my skin...
