”I’ve used other brands for primer, and for every single primer I’ve purchased, they have made me break out constantly. This primer is a whole other ball game. It keeps my skin looking matte, without breakouts! I have sensitive skin + very dry skin. I will not stop using this product. It works amazing, and for the price, you really can’t go wrong. Highly suggest trying this product out!”

”This primer is sooo affordable and works amazing for it’s price point. Makeup really does adhere to it. Plus it has a slight blurring effect on my skin. I had to dock a star off though because this is the only primer I have tried that has ever pilled up on me. Even after trying to leave it longer before applying foundation and trying different ways to apply it. But for the price and quality, it’s something I can deal with.”

Make Up Applies So Smoothly

I’ve had this primer for a long time but I only got to use it now. I usually apply mg concealer on top of my moisturizer on a day-to-day basis. I decided to try this primer before applying my concealer, and I was so surprised at how smoothly it was to apply! I have large pores, and it was covered up without looking cake-y. A little also goes a long way, so one tube will last a long time. 😊

Average primer

This is not a very good primer if your acne prone. I used this product for 2 weeks but I had breakouts so I stopped using it. I guess it's not the right primer for me. But in terms of coverage, it's true to its promise. It occludes the pores and is easy to remove.

Makeup stays on longer

I love that it doesn’t feel heavy when applied and my skin aborbs it really well. As soon as the product is applied, i felt what prepped skin should feel, smooth yet unclogged. As to performance, my makeup lasted longer and i didnt feel the need to retouch concealer throughout the day so like all products from The Ordinary, the performance is true to the no-nonsense label: it’s a high adherence silicone primer. Will definitely repurchase

Very disappointed

Ive read and watched a lot of good reviews for this product. I expect that its like the maybelline baby skin primer though since it claims that its a silicone primer. But unfortunately its not. Its sticky and sadly i got a little bumps on my skin after using this.

Great for mineral makeup!

Been using this primer for months now and it's a bit oily, at first I didn't like how I needed to wait for it to sink in before applying my foundation but found it absolutely PERFECT for mineral foundations. I switch between The Ordinary Serum Foundation & Ellana's Loose Powder Foundation and this primer was great for keeping the Ellana foundation on my face and preventing transfer. Didn't really do anything for my liquid foundation, I'm sad to say. Not for anyone oily-skinned either as it really increases shine, though a mineral foundation solves that problem. Won't be repurchasing as I prefer products that work universally but this would be perfect for mineral make-up users.

No Difference

I have been quite hesistant in using primers because I just really see it as moisturizers. This product feels smooth on my skin but I get extra oily when I use it. I think my skin is not suitable for it. It is quite expensive for its size quite frankly. I'm not going to repurchase it and never going to buy primers.
