Great price not great for dry skin
Wow!Starting using The Ordinary routine in the last 2 weeks - and wow! Exceeded my expectations. The primer smooths the skin, and makes putting on your makeup so much easier. Absolutely love the price also - more affordable for purchasing the regime.
Amazing Primer for the Priceverified purchaserI bought this primer along with a high end primer as well and I definitely think this one works so much better in terms of keep my makeup mattified throughout the day. Will definitely continue to use this primer
Good value for moneyReally good value and good price. It’s a very good primer as well. My makeup stays on all day. It’s really ‘light’ also and it is easy to apply.
Amazing for the priceI used to use an expensive primer but have since switched to The Ordinary. It’s just as good! I only had one instance where it pilled under foundation. I avoid this by letting it dry for a minute before adding other layers.
Great primerI love The Ordinary and recently started using their foundation which I am really happy with. I decided to try this primer to compliment the foundation and it works great at keeping my make up in place all day. I receive compliments on how bright my complexion is and how flawless my skin looks when I use these two products together. The primer smooths on very nicely and sits well under foundation....Read More
I like it!Look, I don't wear a lot of makeup, so wasn't really sure where to start with a primer and didn't want to spend much $$. I'm a lover of The Ordinary brand so thought I'd give this one a try. I only use it when I go out or if I know I want my makeup to last a bit longer. The texture is really nice, the scent is fresh and clean and it feels nice on my skin. It's easy to rub in and absorb, and I do g...Read More
Love it !!for how cheap this is it worked amazing! it rubs right into my skin and i love the feeling of it. it made my skin look so natural and glowy with foundation
best primerthis is the only primer i have found that actually stays on my skin all day. I have just repurchased my second tube.
I used to find that if i used a primer my makeup wouldn't last or it would just rub off/not set. Which is strange as isnt that what its meant to help do (aka make the makeup longer lasting?).
I have oily skin, with some large pores and pimples. This make...Read More
Great Value！verified purchaserThis make-up lotion is really cheap, but it's amazing. It's very suitable for my oily skin. It's really a good product.
Great valueNot the best formula I have ever used, doesn't smooth the surface and hydrate as much as other formulas (such as Benefit or Hourglass) however is amazing value for money and does the job.
Great value!!Really good value and good price. It’s a very good primer as well. My makeup stays on all day. It’s really ‘light’ also and it is easy to apply.
Amazing!Such a lovely product! I never used primer before but wanted to try one out and this is amazing! Makes your skin so soft and smooth while taking away shine. Plus you only need to use a small amount because it spreads so easily
Very good and great price!I used to spend too much on primer! I tried this one about six months ago and I have just bought my second tube. Easy to apply. Makeup glides on nicely and for the price it is amazing! Another winner from The Ordinary!
Love this! Cannot recommend it enough!Okay, this primer is just WOW. I've been looking for a nice mattifying primer for YEARS. I've never found something which keeps my skin hydrated but prevents oiliness - till now.
This primer is miraculous. I am way less oily throughout the day and my makeup lasts forever! This product is unreal, would definitely recommend purchasing!
Excellent Product!!This primer is fantastic for it's price - one of the best I've used. Definitely rates compared to more high end/expensive brands.
Lightweight and Effective!!This is the first primer I've ever used and its improved the longevity of my make up. It also gives it a smooth, natural finish and moisturises the dry parts of my skin preventing the dryness and cracks from showing through my make up. A little goes a long way as well :)
Best primer for low priceThis primer performs really well to cover pores etc and it is not too thick as well. Its texture is not too siliconey that it feels suffocating on the skin. but, it doesn't control my oil too well.
Best affordable primer !!!I normally use o skin range, I got this accidentally must have tapped on it at some stage when putting my order through. So glad I did everyone I know will be getting this my skin is so soft for the price I can’t believe what it has done. Smoothed, tightened evened out my skin tone, when I used it at night after my normal routine but have just used it under my makeup its stayed Smooth didn’t crack...Read More
silicone primerCreated a lovely smooth base for my foundation. Would recommend waiting a few minutes to let it sink in otherwise my foundation balled up a bit with the primer. Can't beat the price
Dried my skinIt flaked and gave a dull appearance to my skin even after moisturizing well.
Great ValueBought this as it was so affordable and wasn't expecting much but really loved this product. It's a great base under my makeup and helps cover my dry patches. would recommend.
Not Bad. Ok.It wasn't a bad primer but I've used better. It's great at the start of the day but I found my makeup became cakey after a few hours. I've switched primers and no longer have this issue.
the bestthis is great, I have large pores, oily skin & this primer takes care of that. I keep this in the fridge so it goes on nice & cold, wait about 5 mins before I do my make up. I would buy this again
Perfect BaseI have very normal to dry skin and I always worried about makeup flaking or looking clumpy. This primer is very easy to spread and absorbed well (but not too much) and was the perfect base for my Ordinary Serum foundation. Will buy again!
first time buyI have never used primer before due to my sensitive skin. However this primer is amazing. Makes my face feel amazing and my make up looks so good. definitely recommend it
Affordable and amazingLove this primer! Completely blurs your pores and smooths over your entire face, great for my oily skin. It does have a very silicone feel to it, but for the price point and the results, it's a great product
Tried so many primers but this is the oneI am frankly amazed that this primer is so good and sells at such a low price point. It gives excellent coverage - some primers are so thick you can feel them sitting on your skin, I hate that. This one goes on with a matte finish that's so good it can take powder or liquid foundation (I use both interchangeably depending on what I'm doing that day). Doesn't slide off on my oily areas, though if I...Read More
Not For MeI have been searching for a primer thats not super expensive but will help my make makeup last well. My friend recommended this primer however I was disappointed with the results. It made my skin really oily and therefore my makeup didn't stay on well. It also make my makeup sit more noticeably in my pores. I really like other Ordinary products so I guess this one isn't for me.
Perfect for oily skinThis primer goes on so smooth and keeps my foundation lasting all day without caking or turning into an oil slick. Will definitely be purchasing again.
This product has changed the primer game!This product is amazing! I didn’t expect it to be that good as the price was low but it is the best primer I have bought especially for its price! I have very oily skin and my makeup renders to slide off. This really made my makeup set and hide my skins redness. It’s not to heavy and a little bit goes a long way. Would highly recommend.
Lovely textureUsing this under my makeup. Love the way it feels but not sure if it makes a difference to the longevity of my makeup.
Great value for moneyI always used the benefit primer and the fenty beauty primer, both of which I loved! But this is pretty much on the same level and a whole lot cheaper! Perfect for my oily combination skin.
Affordable and actually greatI have tried expensive and chemist primers and haven't been satisfied due to texture, feel and smell. This one feels nice and soft like a butter, no awful scent and locks everything right in.
Helped my powder foundation stay put.I have used few primers before but this has been the best. Definitely holds my powder foundation better than any other, despite regular nose blowing due to allergies. I have slightly oily middle aged skin. My 23 year old daughter found it balled up under her liquid foundation so it might depend on what products you use with it or how vigorously you apply over the top. Perfect for m skin though ...Read More
Great for oily skinI have oily skin and this smooths over my face really nicely. It makes anything look amazing on top! I do think this primer does hold up with sweat or humidity but it nice to wear at inside events (doesn't cause any flashback with photos).
Not badFor the price point I'm actually impressed with the results, I have quite oily skin so I rely on primer to keep my base flawless. I feel like this primer really helped to matte- ify my face. However it did seperate around my nose which I rarely ever get.
amazing price for great primerI use this before applying makeup. i've definitely noticed that my makeup goes on easier, and has a smooth texture. does a good job of covering up pores too.
Not bad!The value for money is amazing! It’s a great primer that feels really smooth and luxurious.
I do feel that it takes a bit longer to absorb than other primers. But I just start on my hair it do other chores I need to for about 10 mins.
a great primerthis is so good, makes your foundation go on super smooth
Nice budget friendly optionThis was a nice budget friendly option. Can't complain because the price is amazing at it feels nice and smooth. Wasn't the best for my super oily skin.
Pretty Good...This primer worked so well with my oily skin!
The cheap price-point also adds a massive plus. Will be repurchasing again, might even make it a staple in my routine.
Pore reducingI don't really wear make up, so I bought this for the benefits of being my last layer on my face during the day. It spreads onto the face really easily and definitely reduces the appearance of wrinkles while also giving a sort of air brushed look. Highly recommend.
Amazing valueDefinitely extends longevity of foundation - it’s a good grippy staple, scentless and so inexpensive. I have 44 year old combo dry skin and it works well under every foundation and tinted moisturiser I own.
Love Love LoveAbsolutely fell in love the first time i used, i have trouble with primers making my skin really oily and not setting on my face. I have had no trouble with this, it has had made my morning routine so much easier
Great if you have oily skin.My skin changes from season to season. I can only use this product in summer. When my skin is dry in winter it doesn’t absorb and spread. I find you have to warm it up in your hands whenever you use it. However when my skin is more oily it’s fantastic. Hides pores around my nose and chin really well.
Sunk into my skin like butter.I was really impressed with this primer, I have used a few before but found some to be too dry or greasy. The Ordinary's primer was perfect for my skin and you don't need to use much for each application.
Amazing productUse this product everyday - it is amazing!
awful on dry skinthis had the worst texture on my dry skin, it didn't make me look flawless and felt gross and sticky
Not my top primer, but best value by farThis is a really great primer for the price. It is not the silkiest, smoothest one I've ever used but it really does help keep makeup looking great and for the price I feel it really delivers excellent value. It's also not as thick and heavy as some of those ultra silky ones. For me this is an awesome every day primer but I would maybe still buy a mini size of a higher end one for those extra spec...Read More
loved thisI really liked this. It made my foundation go on so smoothly and it is so affordable compared to others on the market
So badI have been using the ordinary products, many of them, and the foundation and I LOVE them. This was garbage and my foundation and this just pool together and slide off. I really wanted to like it. At least it was a cheap mistake. I tried it with 2 foundations too to make sure. Everything else of theres is 5 star. Maybe ok if you have oily skin.
Great price, great product!AMAZING PRICE! I have this primer in my makeup kit and apply the product in the T-Zone area to minimises pores and create a great base, it just melts into the skin - cannot fault!
The best and most affordable primer I’ve tried!Loving this primer - especially for the price! It has a dewy game-like consistency that melts onto the skin, a little goes a long way! Foundations, concealers and powders apply beautifully over the top without affecting their appearance. My sensitive and acne-prone skin did not react at all to this product, it’s amazing barrier between skin and makeup.
Very niceIt's a great primer to use for oily skin and fills in pores very nicely, and allows makeup to last all day. The fact that it's very affordable is just the cherry on top of a great product.
pretty good but basicnice as a basic primer fills in pores and creates a pretty smooth, but not flawless complexion. However, the price for the product is excellent.
OmgI've gone from a $100 primer to this one.. and I definitely do not regret it. I love it!!
Nailed itGreat product at a good price. Don't see myself changing primers any time soon! Will definitely be a repeat purchase customer.
My Go ToCan you believe the price of this primer?
I cannot. For the price, I cannot fault it. My makeup goes on top nicely, it fills my pores and hydrates the skin too. I would not stay it is the best primer out there.
But if you want an every day, reach for, inexpensive primer that does the job, this is it.
Great priceThis primer is an amazing price and does a pretty good job overall.
It keeps my makeup intact all day long but I do find that I can get a bit shiny on my T zone.
GreatI used this primer for the first time about a week ago and it worked really well with the adore beauty foundation. I am yet to try in with another foundation but so far love the product and such a great price
Get Primed!This is a great primer, however a bit fussy with the type of foundation you use so make sure it’s a good match!
Love this brandThis primer feels great, doesn’t have a strong scent and definitely keeps my makeup from running off my face on those 30 degree days! Just another great product for a great price from The ordinary.
Cheap but AmazingI have used every primer under the sun - I'm so excited to have this one that's like a skin care - but cheap and a little goes a long way. It also hides slight imperfections before I even put on foundation!
AwesomeJust so good for the price. Amazing
besttthave mature and yet oily/combination skin. With this being a silicone based primer I was concerned that this would be too oily feeling for my skin. I am glad I tried this because it does not feel oily and is in fact very light and leaves a very soft, Matt finish on the skin.
A little goes a long wayBeen using this primer for a few weeks now and have learnt that less is best. The size of a pea is too much. Really easy to apply and spreads lovely.
Great FinishThis primer enables my foundation to be applied evenly and leaves my overall makeup flawless.
So glad I finally found thisThis has replaced all of the expensive primers I have in my collection and is definitely my favourite. Blurs my skin and makes my foundation apply so smoothly
very smoothingsmoothes out all my pores and is great for before putting on a face of makeup. I really liked this
WowThis primer is so good! Great great great one of the best with a great price.
Love the ordinaryIt applies smoothly as it is silicone base, very happy with this primer. I use a sponge for my foundation and concealer because I noticed that using brush does not go well with this primer.
Very smoothingMakes my skin soft and matte and it blurs our pores. Perfect for oily skin girls
So affordableFor the price I can’t complain at all!
Primer without the hole in your walletA primer that isn't more expensive than your full face of makeup?!
The ordinary has provided an amazing primer that goes on super smooth and gets into all those nooks and crannies. I even used it as a moisturizer, as it leaves skin looking smooth, supple and matte.
Great base for makeup to avoid those pesky breakouts the next morning, but without the pricetag
great daily primerhave been using this for a few months now as my daily primer and im loving it! it makes my skin feel so silky & hydrated after use and my foundation lasts so well! great affordable option for daily use
OkayThe primer can't hide my large pores completely but helps to control shine and my foundation seems to sit better and last longer.
High quality and inexpensiveThis price can buy this quality of primer should be very worth it. It's also very friendly to the oily skin. I like this product.
High quality and inexpensiveThis price can buy this quality of primer should be very worth it. It's also very friendly to the oily skin. I like this product.
AwesomeFor the price I really can't complain about anything! It leaves my face smooth and soft, yes it does have a little rubbery texture and smell but I feel that's being picky. Great for when you want beauty on budget!
CreamyAt first I was a little resistant to try this due to some of the reviews. But then I thought, at this price try it- I’m glad I did! It goes on lovely and smooth and doesn’t ball up with other products.
Does the jobPrimer works quite well, but as with any silicone product, there is a rubbery smell and texture to the product. Personally I wouldn't recommend this as there are nicer water-based alternatives, but the product does what it says.
love itLove this primer. Feels great on my skin and is a 5 star quality for a great budget price!
Great!A little goes a long way and helps makeup go on easily and doesn't alter shine.
Love this for an easy affordable go to daily primer.
Better than I thoughtI wasn’t sure what to expect when ordering but I am very happy with this primer. I have an oily t-zone so I apply this less in those areas. The primer sits well, I don’t find it oily and it really does help my foundation site much more nicely on my skin!
Good value for moneyI really like this product. Unless I come across something organic & amazing, this does the job. I like the texture, how it blurs with or without foundation, and its free of fragrance free.
EasyI use a sponge for my foundation and concealer because I noticed that using brush does not go well with this primer. It applies smoothly as it is silicone base, very happy with this primer.
Smooth movesI was a little hesitant to use a silicon primer as I have skin that tends to break out! I have loved The Ordinary range and this one did not disappoint! I love the ease of application and the mousse like feel of how my foundation adheres to the primer. A definite one for the regular buys.
Ordinary's Best primerI have tried both their primers and I find this one has a better consistency and keeps my make up in place (even after a post work F45 session)
Great!Love this brand. This is my fav primer and it is such a good price!!
Good primer for priceThis primer goes on nicely but I don’t notice it making much difference to making my make up last. It’s very cheap so worth a try.
GoodFills pores. A little goes a long way with this product, too much and your foundation may flake off! Only rub in all that's is enough to fill the pores and no more.
Nice primerIt applies smoothly as it is silicone base. I had to use sponge for my foundation and concealer because I notice that using brush does not go well with this primer. I would recommend it.
NiceI was expecting my foundation to last a bit longer than it has but still a nice primer.
GreatThis primer went on lovely and smoothly. I will purchase again
HelpsI have oily, acne prone skin and this really helps controlling oils during the day. So affordable at this price.
Great Primer Great PrimerSo easy to apply and my foundation stays put all day when I use this primer. It's a great price and size and does fill pores.
AffordableThis for me is a go to easy as well as affordable primer for daily use. It does what it needs toand helps makeup adhere better and doesnt change the shine or all day wearibilty or your makeup
Anything But Ordinary PrimerI purchased this brand as i had heard awesome reviews from my MUA friends who suggested a great lightweight feeling primer with staying power, and this defintley beyond delivers.
I tried yesterday as a part of my daily make up routine and my make up lasted 14 hours without budging and was scent free, light weight, and a great price point.
Would defintley recommend for any...Read More
yes yes yesDone ✅ for the price of this bad boy what’s to dislike? A little goes a long way and I’ve used it from winter until summer without an issue. This primer contains no glow or extra beamy situations so your makeup glides on and stays put without a sheer glow from underneath which is perfect for daily use (IMO)
Great price great productLove this for an easy affordable go to daily primer. Does the job, a little goes a long way and helps makeup go on easily and doesn't alter shine or wear all day ability.
