i am always on the look out for a good primer for my skin, this is the best primer i have used so far, it keeps my skin hydrated and my make up lasts all day, with minimal blotting

pore minimizing

pore minimizing

no, my skin isn't perfectly matte and my large pores are still there, but the oiliness is dramatically reduced and my foundation hasn't separated or moved

- Nyxcosmetics User

i have incorporated this into my everyday skincare routine - love how this leaves a radiant glowing finish on my skin without clogging my pores or causing irritation

- Chickadvisor User



it doesn't feel too heavy on my face and it helps me feel confident wearing my makeup knowing it's going to last through the night

- Chickadvisor User

this is my new primer i use and it is so lightweight

- Ulta User



what i like: the gel creates a smooth layer on my skin that keeps my makeup looking fresh for 8 to 10 hours

- Ulta User

once applied to the skin, it is radiant, smooth and luminous, and makes the skin looks soft and flawless, with a little bit of highlight

My go to

My 50 year old skin loves this primer! I have high end primers but this is definitely my go to on a daily basis. It works well with my It illuminating CC cream. My foundation lasts all day. No more patchy nose by the end of the day. I have normal to dry skin and this helps keep it hydrated. Also, it smooths the appearance of my pores and helps my foundation to not settle into the fine lines I am starting to get. userSeptember 27, 2019

This primer is infused with cannabis sativa seed oil, smells incredible and leaves my skin looking so luminous and even-toned! It scared me at first that it would be too dark or too shimmery but it blends into the skin beautifully. Definitely very hydrating and I wouldn’t recommend this to people with very oily skin. I have combination skin and for me it works great on my minimal makeup days or when I want an extra glow. I’ve worn this on its own and under makeup! Foundation sits amazingly ontop of it. I would 100% repurchase this and recommend this to my family and friends with dry/combination/normal skin! I love NYX primers and this definitely didn’t let me down. The glow it gives is absolutely stunning. userOctober 19, 2019

I recieved this complimentary of Chick Advisor. I used this under my makeup when using face products. This doesn't really have a scent which I think is great for sensitive skin. It went on very smooth and it left a small glow which was perfect. It didn't really make my pores appear smaller but that's okay. It did hydrate my face though! It made my face feel great and non cakey at the end of the day. I would so recommend this product if you're in need of a new primer. userNovember 17, 2019

Love it for combo skin!

I've used this primer with several foundations now (Colourpop liquid and stick foundations, Estee Lauder Double Wear, Wet n' Wild Photofocus, etc.), and it doesn't disappoint! I often have my makeup on for 12+ hours in a day due to my work and school schedules, and this primer has helped my makeup last all day. It's hydrating without being greasy and gives my skin a healthy glow. It doesn't fill in pores (I use another primer for that just around my nose), but it does give my skin an overall smoother appearance. The only downside is the odd consistency, but I don't mind it since the product works so well. userJuly 29, 2019

Major breakouts on combination skin

I REALLY wanted to like this primer. The reviews seemed positive and I'd tested it in store. But every time I use it, I get acne all over my face. Even in places I don't normally break out. As soon as I quit using it for a couple days (while maintaining my other products), the acne subsides. I wash my hands and face before using it, and don't have this issue with other jar products, so I think this just doesn't work with my skin.I agree with others that the primer stays tacky for a long time, but also provides a long wear for a full face. I'll be sticking with No Poreblem because it fills my pores, provides a matte finish, and doesn't break me out.

Does anybody know if this is this a good primer? Does it make you still look a little glowy? Does it have a heavy fragrance or does it just have a slight natural scent to it? My skin is really sensitive and does not like scented or perfumed products.

Recommendations on a medium to full coverage foundation for dry skin? Anything hydrating but not too expensive please :) I have cystic acne and scarring so my face is sensitive.

Try the @Born To Glow Naturally Radiant Foundation . It’s super hydrating, and works great for sensitive skin. It starts off medium coverage, can easily be built to full (more coverage with a dense brush). If you still feel like you need extra hydrating/cooling abilities for your skin you could also try @Bare With Me Hydrating Jelly Primer . It’s a water based gripping primer, so it holds Makeup on longer. It’s also infused with aloe and cucumber so it’s AMAZING for sensitive skin! :)
