”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.”

worth it!

I was just randonly browsing then I came across this. I really like how it moisturizes my skin, I doubted it at first but when I tried it, it did its purpose, I was satisfied by the results. It is really a must try, one bottle goes a long way 😊

Slipping and sliding no more

I've had problems with my foundation breaking apart in the middle of the day and my face looking very cakey when I try to fix it. I've experimented with many primers and this is one of best that I have tried. It extended wear of my foundation and I did not have to worry anymore of my make up slipping and sliding from the oil slick on my face.

This is a keeper!

This is a keeper!!! It’s great for full face priming before makeup. I do have a few small places on my cheeks, either side of my nose, where the pores are larger and this doesn’t quite do the trick there. (Thus the 4 stars rating) But overall this is the best primer for keeping makeup where it’s supposed to be, not drying out my skin, but still lets the glow shine through.

It's okay

It took some time to get used to this primer, I had a lot of errors in base combination and found out that they don't go well with any forms of serum or toner. What I do is I just begin with my sunscreen and then apply this, ever since I've been happy with my make up coverage, its not as effective in minimizing my pores in my nose, they become visible once I set it.

It’s my to go primer, honestly love it and it’s super affordable. My makeup stays flawless, you can use it everyday even if you don’t wear makeup it leaves the skin soft to the touch and slightly covers imperfections. Would buy a thousand times, I’m a super fan of the ordinary and all their products

For smooth foundation application

I’be used this for maybe more than 4 months now, it’s small but a little goes a long way. It makes my skin smooth and really preps it for easier and seamless foundation application. I’m not sure if it helps make my pores look smaller though. But still a good primer since it smoothens some texture on my face.
