Weightless Primer

This primer is amazing. If you have oily skin it might not be your favorite but I have dry skin and it worked amazing. It feels super light on your skin but hides your pores like no other primer. I highly recommend it.

Recommend! But!

First off, I didn't love it at first. I have very dry skin and general texture, which this was emphasizing, so that's all I was noticing. I would put a very small amount on after general skin care and before foundation, like most people...HOWEVER, I saw a random person using it on Instagram and they did something interesting, first off, they loaded it on, then put moisturizer on top! Which is typically a little backward, but I though I'd give it a try. I DID find that this worked great! I noticed my pores looked smaller, skin looked really smooth and makeup stayed well, without drying me out. I used a very glowy moisturizer/SPF on top. I found it smoothed the primer out and kept me better moisturized.SO, here comes the "BUT"... I love it, BUT it did break me out. I am a religious face washer and I make sure I unclog my pores, but I think this just makes it's way TOO deep into the pores. I am still giving this a five star, because I feel like it does its job perfectly, I would just watch what your face does, and stop using too often if you find it clogs your pores too much. I am going to be using once in a while! « less

Works on my dry, over 40 skin and increases wear time.

Makes the makeup last, smooths texture and makes my skin look and feel like a satin/ velvet finish. Love it! I’m glad I got it as a little goes a long way and I couldn’t find it anywhere else. Good dupe for more expensive high-end brands for reducing the look of pores. I have very dry, over 40 skin and it works for me without drying my skin. It reduces the look of my lines and texture which is why I wear a primer (along with adding staying power to my foundation). I’m very glad I got it. It’s not a matte finish for me but more natural and satin. I do use moisturizing products under this primer also so I’m sure that helps too. It seems like it would work for several skin types which is awesome! Two thumbs up for me.

NOT FOR OILY SKIN

I do not normally write reviews, but maybe I'll save a life here. First, I'll start with positives. Didn't really smell like much until I had some in my hand, then it had a bit of an odor. Went on really smooth and the texture of it was pretty nice. And now, where it all went wrong. My face felt IMMEDIATELY greasy. Now, I have super oily skin and this primer's claim to fame is being able to lock in moister. In hindsight, probably should have known this was going to end extremely bad. Before I did anything else, I slapped on some blotting powder because OMG. My face was like a slip and slide. After about another thirty seconds I knew this was a no-go for me, so I took it off. BUT IT GETS WORSE! I used an exfoliating wipe to get off the make up I did have on my face but my skin was STILL oily. Waaaaaaaay more oily than it was before I put on the primer. I have a very mattifying skin routine so my skin was pretty stable at the time before I applied anything. I used two deep cleansers and my (admittedly very harsh) toner and my skin finally didn't feel like a grease trap anymore. TLDR: If you have super oily skin like myself DO. NOT. USE! Elf has other primers that work amazing so don't go through this nightmare like I did! But if you have dry skin, girl, this product is for you! « less

Primer recommendations for sensitive, blemished, textured skin? Something that’s pore-filling, skin smoothing, but still hydrating? I have favourite products/holy grails for most of my makeup steps, except for primer. I’ve never really fallen in love with a primer, maybe because of my problematic skin. I stay away from mattifying primers because those tend to cling to my acne dry spots, and then my makeup starts flaking/peeling off in those spots. With hydrating primers tho I don’t get the smoothing effects, and all of my “face craters” can get enhanced. Maybe I’m asking for a miracle, but it be great if someone who has had similar issues can recommend a primer! #primer #problemskin #complexion

If you haven’t tried this yet I definitely recommend it, it’s amazing for filling pores and smoothing everything out and it’s hydrating without being greasy.

Any foundation/primer recommendations out there?! I believe my skin is a combo -dehydrated/dryer on the edges but large pores and super oily on the sides of my nose. Makeup appears to keep caking and like slipping off. I’ve tried tarte Amazonian clay, it cosmetics, IL Makiage, born this way foundations I use a serum every night and moisturizer most nights. I use a gentle cleanser in the morning and moisturize with first aid beauty. Feel like I’ve been testing everything while I’m quarantine 😭

I need HEEELLLPPP. No primers seem to work for me and witch hazel does nothing for my pores. I don’t know if it’s the blush I use or what but my pores are GIGANTIC and I look cakey no matter how little makeup I use bc it all seeps into my pores. I use maybelline Fit Me matte and poreless foundation.

This is really good at filling pores and smoothing everything out without feeling heavy or drying.
