Most Helpful Positive

My new go to primer!
I absolutely love this! It works perfectly on my combination/oily skin and I find a little goes a long way. Great value for money!

Most Helpful Criticism

okay
It's a nice and affordable foundation, but the scent is a little uncomfortable.
  1. My new go to primer!

    I absolutely love this! It works perfectly on my combination/oily skin and I find a little goes a long way. Great value for money!
  2. Skin feels so smooth

    I love this primer, it’s so cheap and leaves my skin feeling smooth and makeup goes on perfectly. Only downside is the smell but I can deal with that
  3. Amazing, affordable!

    Makes my skin look smooth and makes my skin feel smooth, glides on easy, doesn’t feel heavy, love this product!
  4. Best value primer

    This primer is great! and for only $8.80!! Goes on really well, only need the smallest amount and it works really well! I order two at a time, I just cannot get enough
  5. okay

    It's a nice and affordable foundation, but the scent is a little uncomfortable.
  6. smooths and controls oils

    Great price point! This primer is good at controlling oil and blurring pores. It creates a nice base for makeup, the silicone really makes my skin seem smooth.
  7. As good as the best, expensive primer's I've used

    I'm beyond pleased with this Primer. The texture is perfect - lightweight - and allows your foundation to glide onto your face a set.

    The best thing about it is the price tag! Primer is one of those products that I've always found overpriced, and I was thrilled to find such a high quality, well-priced Primer.
  8. Good price but not for me

    Really affordable product but two negatives: The scent! Silicone is a really obvious smell. Another was I felt the primer didn't set well and rubbed off when I put my foundation on.
  9. Great Product For The Price

    I am not usually a primer gal but this is close to how the Benefit Pore Primer feels!
    It is super smoothing and makes makeup application a breeze
  10. Great

    Loving this so far. It is just like any normal primer (not like outstanding) but SO SO cheap. I will reorder it.
  11. Affordable and does it's job

    I have oily combination skin and this primer does an amazing job of prepping my skin and helping my makeup stay put all day! The price is another positive so I've stocked up and will continue to use it
  12. The smell

    Okay honestly, this is a nice primer, it’s very affordable and makes my makeup look amazing and feels very smooth on the skin, however, the smell, oh my lord I cannot. I dont mind my products to have a scent but this just straight up smells like silicone, I find it very intense so if you don’t like the smell of plastic then I would not recommend this product xox
  13. Stays all day!

    I have used this product for the first time and I’m so impressed. My make up stayed on all day with hardly any crease lines. I’m excited to use it again!
  14. Great value

    Amazing price for a quality product, my makeup stays on all day and I used to use expensive primer, but why spend big when you can get the same effect with this primer which is great value and extremely affordable.
  15. Fantastic value

    I was pleasantly surprised by this primer. I have enlarged pores and somewhat sensitive skin. I was previously using a higher priced primer which I still do love but I wanted a more cost effective option. First time I used it I wasn’t a fan of the smell.... but now I don’t even notice it. I may use slightly more product then before but when it is a 5th of the price of my much loved primer, it is a winner for me.
  16. Great and cheap!

    Will not use another primer. So cheap and works so well!
  17. Great primer. Protective and long lasting.

    I love this primer. It seems to keep my skin moist and my makeup on all day with minimal touch ups.

    I even use it under another primer if I’m using a mattifying primer as these usually seem to dry my skin and cause it to get oily

    (I have a tendency to have oily skin in general).

  18. Good value for money

    I usually use an expensive primer but thought I'd give this one a go due to the cheap price. I wasn't expecting much to be honest, however, it has a really nice consistency and sits on the skin nicely. My make up applies more evenly and lasts longer. I wont be going back to my old expensive primer
  19. Love Love Love

    Love this primer. It worked as a great base for all my foundations not just The Ordinary ones.
  20. Lovely primer

    This is the only primer I will use now. I use it over sunscreen, allow it to dry a little, then apply my foundation. It allows for a beautiful and smooth application of my foundation. I even use it on days when I'm not wearing makeup as it gives my skin an even tone appearance. And it's great value for money. A little goes a long way.
  21. No frills primer

    This is a basic primer that's very affordable and does the job, but it is a little fussy. It's not the best and you will experience pilling if you don't wait for your moisturiser to absorb first before putting this on. The primer needs to sit on the skin for a while before applying foundation too or again pilling will occur.
  22. Hydrating primer

    I like this primer but I wouldn't recommend using it on top of too many other products or moisturizer. Less is best. It's a beautiful smooth application.
  23. So smooth!

    This product leaves my skin feeling so smooth I just love it. It helps my makeup to go on nicely and stay put for longer. I have oily skin and this helps the shine to stay away. A great primer.
  24. Enjoy

    Feels great when applying although it has a slight smell
  25. Entry level primer

    This primer is comparable to my Stay Matte Rimmel primer. My skin just does not react well with makeup and my foundation often breaks up on my face halfway through the day, this primer definitely helped my makeup look smoother for longer. However, once I start layering creams/liquids over the primer and set with powder, it essentially gives me the same result; breaking up around my mouth and cheeks. It's a good basic primer, but now the magic potion i was looking for to fix my problematic skin
  26. Love this primer

    This is my first purchase from The Ordinary collection as the price point of the brand always left me sceptical. I'm so glad I tried it, for a silicone based primer its quite light and a little bit goes a long way. I've been using it every day, applying a small amount smooths and extends the coverage of my foundation, even on makeup free days it seems to even my complexion. I will definitely be exploring the rage further.
  27. Great primer for the price

    Really good primer for how cheap it is, lasts a few months Ruth daily use. Have tried the other The Ordinary primer but this one is better and I've tried it with a few different foundations and still works great.
  28. Great product

    i have dry skin and this primer is super silky on. I put it under a few different types of foundations, the ordinary brand and also a nars one and makes my makeup last longer. Glides on nicely feels fresh on the skin. I also use it after sunscreen if I'm not wearing makeup as I feel like it offers some protection from the elements.
  29. Great value for money

    Was initially worried that the silicone would break me out... but all good! Primer glides on smoothly and left a good finish for my make up application. Makeup lasted all day even in hot and humid weather.
    Great value for money and would be purchasing again.
  30. Loved it!

    Such a contrast in texture to previous primers I’ve used this definitely feels a lot silkier but worked perfectly and was the perfect base for a full face of makeup. I have oily/ dry skin and will definitely buy again
  31. Affordable but not the best

    This primer is very cheap and it's not bad! If you don't take the time to let your skincare absorb before putting this primer on and don't wait to put your foundation on, then the product will pill. It's also not the best at oil control nor is it moisturising so I would only recommend to those with normal skin. The primer does fill in my pores somewhat and my foundation doesn't look like a hot mess by the end of the day. So for the price, this is a decent investment! Not the greatest primer but definitely the most affordable.
  32. It’s just nice

    It does the job, no complaints.
  33. Dissappointing

    I have fair, sensitive combination skin. Thought this would be great from the rave reviews but found it sticky, tacky, balled on skin, didn't do much. I used it a couple times then it's been gathering dust.
  34. Very good in humid weather.

    I have sensitive skin with large pores. This primer works well under foundation, especially in humid weather. Non irritating, but the thick consistency was off-putting . However, it worked well with the Ordinary serum foundation. In fact , my skin looked smooth and even toned before I applied the foundation. I think i could wear this alone. Very impressive for such a well priced primer. My pores and lines were not at all obvious. The foundation did not settle into the imperfections thanks to this primer.
  35. Best primer I have used

    I have very oily skin, and make up tends to slide off during the day - not with this primer! My makeup will literally stay in place all day. I love it!
  36. Not really a fan

    I find this primer to be quite drying of my skin, I didn't really enjoy the powdery kind of feeling finish to this primer, it didn't allow me to easily blend out my foundation. Personally, this just wasn't a primer for me.
  37. Great for oily skin

    I bought this just for the sake of it, but was pleasantly surprised by its ability to make my skin appear a little less oily and inflamed (acne) during the day, without any makeup.
    I used it as a primer sometimes, but mainly as a skincare last step on no-makeup days, as I've definitely purchased better primers.
  38. So so good!

    This stuff is great!! Makes make up sit beautifully over dry, patchy uneven skin tone and smooths out lumps and bumps. Love it!
  39. Love it

    Great product, I put on after sunscreen and it creates a great base for my foundation, I use Nars day to day and I find that it makes it sit really nicely on the skin. I haven't noticed that it makes it last longer but I am using less product because its not soaking in. I have combination/dry skin and will defs purchase this again.
  40. Not bad

    I find this product decent if you have enough time to slowly layer your products - if you don't wait long enough the primer pills really easily. Having said that, on the days where I have time, it's a great primer. It stops my naturally oily skin creating an oil slick by midday and creates a really smooth base for other products

  42. Cheaper alternative

    Wanted to check out the hype with The Ordinary, and at less than $9 couldn't resist trying out their primer. For $9! I'm quite impressed!!!!!
    Very similar to Benefits Porefessional - with smoothing out pores/skin.

    However noticed my skin is a bit slippery towards the end of the day, doesn't control oil very well.
  43. Good smoothing primer

    I feel this primer does a pretty good job of smoothing my pores, it's not the greatest primer but considering the price it is worth trying. I think it does all it needs to do for me. I have fairly normal skin with a little bit of texture and larger pores around my nose.
  44. Wanted to like it......

    I did not love this product unfortunately, I didn't really find it to be a good primer for me (my skin is oily/combination with occasional breakouts; my age is 29). I found it felt too heavy and thick on my skin and it didn't make my makeup last as long as other primers I've used.

    It's a great price (as are most Ordinary products). But sadly I would not repurchase.
  45. Piles as soon as I apply my foundation or concealer

    A bit disappointed in this product! As soon as I apply my foundation or concealer it starts to pile !!!!! I’ve tried a few times now but even if i just apply a light concealer it still piles. It could be that it doesn’t work well with the ordinary moisturiser underneath! I try the other ordinary primer without the silicone
  46. You get what you pay for

    Pretty disappointed with this product! Feels really greasy on application and doesn't correct my skin or maintain my makeup well at all.
  47. Best primer ever

    Will definitely re purchase. The best primer I've ever used and such a fabulous price. absorbs really fast, leaves a matte finish, and makeup just glides on and stays in place all day! Holy grail of Primers!
  48. Blurs

    I love the blurring effect but don’t think it helps my makeup stay in place much
  49. It’s great

    This primer is silky smooth and makes my foundation go a hell of a lot longer would definitely recommend
  50. Fabulous!

    Great, cheap, lightweight primer that works a treat :) I love it!
  51. Great value for money

    This is a great everyday primer. Feels great under makeup. Great value for money.
  52. MATTE perfection!

    Yay!! Can’t believe I finally found a primer that actually does what it says and primes and instantly dries on your face. Love it
  53. It's ok

    Feels nice and moisturizing on skin but I can't say my foundation lasted any longer with this primer. I have primers I prefer so I would not repurchase but with saying that for the price it was worth trying.
  54. Not for me

    I love most of the ordinary products, but I didn't really notice an improvement in the durability of my foundations with this primer. I tried it with a few foundations and I felt like it made my skin too slippery and the foundations were not sticking as much. Maybe it doesn't work for me because I have pretty oily skin, if you have drier skin this might work better for you.
  55. New go-to

    I bought this because of Wayne Goss' recommendation, and I don't regret it at all. It's a silky smooth, lightweight primer that reminds me of the Hourglass Mineral Veil. It smooths out my pores and makes makeup application easier, and keeps my oily T-zone at bay for sure. Would recommend this to everyone with combo or oily skin like me!
  56. not for me

    i love this brand in general but this serum not so much. The ordinary is a great price point and great quality.Not so much for me. I have combination skin and i felt this primer made my skin so much oily it was just kinda gross i couldn't wear my bb or foundation over the top it just slid down it was just a no for me i had to throw it out. if you have oily skin or combination skin i wouldn't recommend it.
  57. Great product.

    Love the product. Excellent service only comment the amount in the tube could be double and I would love it even more.
  58. Great!

    Great primer for the price! Makes foundation go on smooth! I’m using so much less foundation!
  59. Thumbs up!

    For the price and quality, definitely worth it! Really did aid in the application of the foundation and didn’t clog the pores as I didn’t have an oily t-zone like I always do after a few hours of the make up being on.
  60. Such an amazing primer!!

    Absolutely love this primer! compliments so well with the ordinary foundation. So good for the price, affordable and gets me coming back for more everytime!!
  61. Hydrating primer!

    I can already see this product being one of my HG's!!
    I used this for the first time a couple of days ago and my make-up has lasted a good 20+ hours with it hardly budging.

    I usually feel a bit dry after having make-up on all day but this definitely kept my face hydrated with make-up. Would definitely recommend.
  62. Love it

    You can’t go past the quality & price with the ordinary! I have combo skin & found this to be such a smooth, simple base for my foundation. Can’t wait to keep using
  63. Dollar for dollar, the best you can get

    Look, there are a few slightly better primers available at the top end of the market, if you want to pay 2 or 3 times the price. But this is as good - or at least very close to. It's amazing for the price. Does exactly what you want a primer to do. Recommended.
  64. Very good for the price

    I have combination skin that's especially oily around the nose/t-zone. Using this primer, I still get shiny by lunchtime, but it definitely lasts better than anything else I've tried around this price point, and it definitely helps with the longevity of my foundation. Until I finally bite the bullet and dive into the more exxy stuff, this will definitely be my go-to.
  65. Ok...but..

    I was hoping this would be good for my T-zone but found for some reason it didn’t work on the tip of my nose for very long. Felt great to put on and rest of t-zone was fine. I will try it again to see if it was the foundation?
  66. Good affordable primer

    Works well, doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. Doesn't really blur my problem areas but definitely smooths and is a great primer under YoungBlood loose powder foundation (I wait a couple of mins for it to "dry"). Very affordable & don't need to use much. Buying again now.
  67. My fav primer!

    My new fav primer! Foundation goes on so smooth & stays in place all day.
  68. Good

    This is a great primer especially for people with fine lines. I need something a little more heavy duty for the amount of makeup I wear regularly, but for everyday light makeup applications, it’s fantastic and I’ll continue to have it in my collection.
  69. Not a fan at all!

    I’m a big silicon primer user and I found this to be terrible! It is too thin and doesn’t coat like a primer should. I also find that it peaks from your skin, like when you have too much moisturiser on. Love The Ordinary but not this one.
  70. great products at a great price

    I am so glad adore beauty recommended I try the Ordinary products. I have been so impressed with the quality for the price. I have tried both primers (the tube and bottle) and I felt both worked great. they really helped reduced the size of my pores and smooth out my skin before I applied my foundation. They are really light and go on so easily. I recommended this brand to friends and they love it too.
  71. Not a fan

    Feels pretty greasy when applying and doesn’t seem too absorb too well. Don’t think it makes much of a difference in terms of correcting my skin or ensuring the longevity of my foundation.
  72. Love it!!!

    I've used all sorts of crazy expensive primers to fill my pores I have normal to combination skin. This I stumbled accross and I will never look back! I've already told everyone I can do buy it. And to make things even better I received my product in 24 hours! Love love love it!!!
  73. Great value for money

    Price point and quality of the product is well worth it. I've tried many high end primers in the past but ended up disappointed. I've got combination skin and unlike other primers on the market, my skin has never broken out using The Ordinary, 10/10 would recommend.
  74. Didn't work for me

    This primer made my skin look flaky under makeup which doesn't normally happen with my other pore filling primers. I didn't notice a difference with longevity either.
  75. Not a fan

    I prefer a matte look to my makeup so was not a fan of this product, found it a bit slimy and did nothing for my pores. Such a shame as I love The Ordinary products and you can't beat the price!!
  76. Light weight and good spreadable product

    This is amazing and I will be buying it again. It keeps my foundation in place all day and doesn’t make my face feel like a rock
  77. Smooth!

    I love this primer, it’s inexpensive and looks great under foundation. The silicon primer makes the foundation so easy to blend.
    Definitely a favourite
  78. Alright, not bad not good

    Skin type dry, nice base under makeup although I feel like it doesn't do much. Didn't break me out and does make my makeup last a little longer but nothing noticeable. Probably wouldn't repurchase, would try something else.
  79. Fantastic

    Great primer. Moisturises nicely. Fills in pores. Smooths skin. :)
  80. Good for a base

    I have been using this formula for a few months now, and I have combination skin. I use it in accordance with moisturiser, and it makes sure my face has a smooth base before applying foundation. Well priced and a good product, would recommend!
  81. Not so Ordinary!

    Absolutely love this primer. I have fairly clear skin anyway, sometimes a little rough when my skin is dry but once I put the primer on, even on its own, it makes my face feel silky smooth, I love it, and it makes application of powders and other makeup a lot easier. 10/10 would recommend.
  82. Pretty good

    Only use this on my T zone when I need extra coverage - seems to do the job!
  83. Good, especially for the price

    I love that the primer works really well, blurs as it says and is inexpensive. My only complaint would be that I wish they offered larger sizes!
  84. Good primer

    Love this primer! Bought it twice now. Makes my face super smooth, and provides a great base for my makeup. Such a good price!


    Only downfall would be the packaging - I find that it gets really difficult to get product out towards the end
  85. Great primer

    Love this product. It makes my skin feel extra soft and refined. Just need a container with larger amount would be super.
  86. Really good

    This primer is amazing, especially for the low cost. Makes my skin appear and feel smoother than without primer and lasts well.
  87. Great quality primer

    This is one of my favourite primers! Goes on easily, spreads well and sits perfectly under my make up. I find I reach for it over many other high-end products.
  88. Not a product for combination skin

    This product goes on the skin really well but doesn't stay fresh for long if you have combination skin. It feels sticky and greasy under light makeup. I also tried wearing it on a day without makeup and was uncomfortable. Its a great product for short term make up.
  89. Excellent primer for the price

    I love this primer. This is a great product and very reasonably priced. I would love to see the Ordinary stock some of their products in bigger bottles as this doesn't last ages. I use this product on week days and find it definitely primes the skin well and ensures make up stays fresh longer.
  90. Stop buying $50+ primers!

    A very good primer and very wallet friendly. It's actually not very silicon-ey feeling, more like a thick moisturiser. I think this works better for drier skin types, but I have oily and it still works for me. It melts into the skin and seamlessly blends with most foundations I have tried with it creating a smooth canvas and blurred appearance to pores. This will never beat my HG Hourglass primer, but for the price this is 100% worth it.

  91. Nice Primer

    This primer is easy to spread and makes my skin look nice and velvety with the appearance of less flaws. Whilst it works well under foundation or powder, I don't find it makes my make up last any longer. However, for the improved appearance of my skin it's worth it. I find this one a little 'shinier' on the skin than The Ordinary High Spreadability Liquid Primer, but it's really hydrating - most primers usually dry my skin out and make my skin look thirsty, but not this one. A good, simple primer at a great price.
  92. Get it

    Seriously, stop buying $40+ primers. It's not necessary. I almost don't want to recommend this because I know once everyone tries it it's going to be hard to get haha. Stays on all day, doesn't cause break outs. Buy it! Just please leave some for me haha
  93. The Holy Grail of Primers!

    I LOVE this product and couldn't live without it! I am 49 and last week I had a group of people telling me how amazing my skin was... I'm so sure it's all my new TO products and this particular primer whenever I wear makeup. I can still layer all my serums and oils and then when I apply this primer, it feels like it kind of seals it all in. In love and have a back up tube in the cupboard just in case it's out of stock!
  94. Favourite primer

    I love this primer - silky smooth, no offensive smell and works really well under the Ordinary Serum Foundation. And for the price I will definitely be stocking up!
  95. Fantastic primer

    Love this primer. Smooths the skin, and makes a great base for foundation. Will be buying again
  96. Favourite Primer

    More like 6/5 stars. This primer is amazing, lightweight and leaves my skin feeling and looking smooth. Great to wear just by itself or with makeup.
  97. Affordable and does the job

    Great price point but pretty standard for a silicone primer. Makes my face nice and smooth before foundation but can break me out if used too often
  98. My favourite primer

    The price tag is amazing with smoothing results.
    Makeup lasts a lot longer.
  99. pore filling and blurring but clogging

    this does make the skin smooth and velvety and because of the silicone layer which blurs pores and fine lines and it is very affordable however i have oily skin and found after a couple weeks this did block my pores probably due to the silicone. i might use it every other day now as it did prolong my foundation but made me breakout

  100. Nice, but changes my makeup application

    This product surprised me a little bit. I expected it to be thicker (like the too faced poreless primer).

    However, it is a thinner and really easy to spread primer (meaning you get a lot of product for your money).

    The first time I used this I applied it all over my face and I saw a difference in how my foundation applied.
    It worked well with my foundation on my cheeks and forehead but made my makeup cake up around my nose and chin area.

    I would recommend this primer, but remember a little goes a long way. Now I only apply it on my cheeks and forehead to fill in my pores.
    I would recommend the high preadability prime (from the ordinary) over this one.
