uneven skintone

evens out skin

it not only helps diminish redness but evens out my skin tone

- Glossier User

but this product leaves my skin dewy looking and hydrated, and i swear it evens out my skin tone

- Glossier User



it's heavy and light in all of the right ways, the smell is super strong but i actually kind of adore it, and the packaging is so beautiful

- Glossier User

it sinks into my skin and it's very lightweight and boy oh boy, it does a very good job of plumping up my skin and making it look its healthiest

- Glossier User



it makes my skin soft and hydrated without making me feel or look like an oil slick

- Glossier User

the most beautiful moisturizer i've ever used, in terms of the whole sensorial: creamy texture, sophisticated scent - and also makes my skin feel amazing: hydrated, soothed, protected

- Glossier User


causes flare ups

it left me with a red face

- Glossier User

i had to thoroughly wash it all off and even then, the redness did not subside for hours

- Glossier User



oh boy, did it irritate me

- Glossier User

it kept my skin soft and did not irritate it or cause acne

- Glossier User


bad for acne

turns out it made me breakout like crazy

- Glossier User

i don't have much acne either

- Glossier User


non anti-aging

my full size primer isn't here yet, and i'm still debating weather i should return it or attempt to use it 2 nights a week and see if the retinal can clear some of my fine lines

- Glossier User

retinol when in exposure to uv rays can do the opposite of what it should do when not exposed to uv rays, which is anti-aging; so basically if you're in the sun it will age you faster

- Glossier User


non brightening

turns my skin bright red

- Glossier User

i heard tons of hype about glossier and decided to give the priming moisturizer a try, however a few minutes after i applied it to my face, it started burning and turning bright red and puffy

Holy Grail

I have always had very dry skin, especially around my nose where my skin has flaked and gotten red and irritated in the past. I've gone through a lot of mositurizers throughtout my life but have never settled on one until finding this one. My skin has never looked better, and for the first time ever, my nose isn't flaking in harsh New York winters!! This moisturizer has even improved my skin over time, in texture, overall feel and look. It feels light and hydrating all day long and I love the lavender smell, it's so absolutely relaxing. I've rebought this product three times and as soon as it's back in stock I'll buy three just to make sure I don't run out. 100% recommend.

It lit me up immediately. Like I had it on maybe 3 minutes and my face was so red and stayed red even after applying a soothing mask which is my go to for my sensitive skin. It also smelled terrible and the fumes it released actually burned my eyes.

Light of my life, glow of my cheeks

I don't see how people can complain about the smell of a product that is literally fragrance-free. Products that smell of fruit and flowers usually contain fragranced ingredients to hide their true smell and can be extremely irritating to the skin. Most products will smell like this prior to fragrance being added. And all the "chemical" ingredients? The vast majority of them are emollients used to create a nice texture in lieu of heavy and congesting oils and emulsifiers to help the water-based formula absorb into your oil-producing skin. Nothing to be scared of. Anyway, this moisturizer is bangin and works better than a lot of the more pricier stuff on the market. I've got combo/oily skin and live in a climate that can be very hot and humid in the summer, and is extremely cold and dry in the winter. With its lightweight buildability, it is perfect for a year-round moisturizer. And, redness=gone. Breakouts=gone. Scalies=gone. Dullness=gone. It's very thin and can be tricky to dispense, you've just gotta be careful when unscrewing the cap and squeezing the product out. Price point is great imo and a tube lasts me forever. If I had to use one moisturizer for the rest of my life, this would be it.

Loving this!!!

This is one of the first Glossier products I ever purchased. I have been using it now for about 6 months and I am still loving it!!! I have sensitive/acne-prone/oily skin and am very particular about moisturizers. This product is super hydrating but doesn't feel heavy at all, it absorbs really quickly which is a HUGE plus in my book (I hate that greasy feeling some moisturizers leave). Because I have oily skin I don't use this in the mornings before make-up, I've tried a few times but I always end up shiny by the middle of the day. I use this every evening and wake up glowing skin every day. My super sensitive skin hasn't experienced any break outs or irritation. Overall, I will definitely be using this moisturizer for as long as Glossier makes it!!!

Overall, this moisturizer is beautiful; I have found it to be richly moisturizing, while still light and quick to soak in. Moreover, I would consider this product comparable to the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, but much less expensive and less fragranced.In the past, I've had to sleep with my hair in a ponytail so that it wouldn't get greasy because of thick facial moisturizers that wouldn't soak in, but Priming Moisturizer Rich has eliminated that problem. Furthermore, as someone who has struggled with acne, I appreciate the lack of a strong scent which can tend to irritate my sensitive skin. Throughout my skin troubles, I had never found the moisturizers recommended by my dermatologist to be thick and luxurious enough--I'll admit that not only am I paying extra for the high-quality product here, but also the experience of not only using but buying it (if I'm going to spend money might as well mend my bank account with some stickers)--hence why Priming Moisturizer Rich does the job. Even though my skin has calmed down, I am still very cautious to experiment with skin care, so I especially appreciate when I find something truly great. Finally, the only thing I would change is the packaging because while it looks great, repeatedly dipping fingers is not very hygienic.

I highly recommend this product I use it everyday, I use it as a light weight primer for when I’m doing a very natural look and I also use it as a moisturizer by itself. This is my favorite moisturizer by far.

Does anyone know a moisturizing primer before makeup for dry skin this time of year when it gets cold and dry? I normally have oily skin but when winter comes my skin tends to get a little dry. #primer #moisturizer #skincare #skin #dry #oily

I really recommend moisturizing your face before you apply makeup instead of using a primer. I love the glossier moisturizer. It also is supposed to be a primer too which is great. I use it every day. My skin gets dewy after I put it on. 😊😊😊

I have oily skin, and I use Glossiers @Priming Moisturizer and I absolutely love it. It’s especially good if you like to have a priming moisturizer option that’s not too heavy.

Hey friends, as you can see from the pictures, my foundation has started to become...flaky? And weird? When I wear it for longer periods of time. As you can see from the tagged products, it doesn’t matter which foundation I use, it gives me that weird cakey-flaky consistency after some wear. I think my skin has become more oily recently, but that’s the only skin change I’ve had and I’ve worn both of these foundations for forever so I don’t think it’s the formula. Not really sure what to do? Help??

make sure that your face is properly moisturized before primer/foundation! I know it sounds weird bc moisturizing oily skin seems contradictory, but properly hydrated skin will reduce that problem! I recommend either cera ve pm as an every day moisturizer or Glossier’s priming moisturizer!
