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.

Most Helpful Criticism

Great price not great for dry skin

Shan

The primer is a great price and size and does fill pores well however having combination skin it made my dry skin rub off as it would if using a chemical exfoliant when I used it with the foundation and a brush. May be better for oilier skin types.

  2. Amazing Primer for the Price

    Alana

    verified purchaser
    I 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
  3. Good value for money

    VIKY

    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.
  4. Amazing for the price

    Sparkle

    I 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.
  5. Great primer

    AVG

    I 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....

  6. I like it!

    Stacey

    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...

    Bhuvana

    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
  8. best primer

    Simone

    this 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...

    This make-up lotion is really cheap, but it's amazing. It's very suitable for my oily skin. It's really a good product.
  10. Great value

    Anna

    Not 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.
  11. Great value!!

    Bhuvi

    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.
  12. Amazing!

    Lottie

    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
  13. Very good and great price!

    Kristy

    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!
  14. Love this! Cannot recommend it enough!

    M

    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!
  15. Excellent Product!!

    Bhuvana

    This primer is fantastic for it's price - one of the best I've used. Definitely rates compared to more high end/expensive brands.
  16. Lightweight and Effective!!

    Tara

    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 :)
  17. Best primer for low price

    Erica

    This 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.
  18. Best affordable primer !!!

    venni

    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...

  19. silicone primer

    sha

    Created 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
  20. Dried my skin

    Nexa

    It flaked and gave a dull appearance to my skin even after moisturizing well.
  21. Great Value

    Emma

    Bought 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.
  22. Not Bad. Ok.

    Jodie

    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.
  23. the best

    lee-lee

    this 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
  24. Perfect Base

    TeegsStar

    I 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!
  25. first time buy

    rachel

    I 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
  26. Affordable and amazing

    ella

    Love 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
  27. Tried so many primers but this is the one

    PJW

    I 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...

  28. Not For Me

    Jennifer

    I 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.
  29. Perfect for oily skin

    Elizabeth

    This 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.
  30. This product has changed the primer game!

    Chantelle

    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.
  31. Lovely texture

    Renchan

    Using this under my makeup. Love the way it feels but not sure if it makes a difference to the longevity of my makeup.
  32. Great value for money

    Kate

    I 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.
  33. Affordable and actually great

    Ivana

    I 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.
  34. Helped my powder foundation stay put.

    Angela

    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 ...

  35. Great for oily skin

    Ally J

    I 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).
  36. Not bad

    Jas

    For 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.
  37. amazing price for great primer

    Lis

    I 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.
  38. Not bad!

    Kimmy144

    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.
  39. a great primer

    ellis

    this is so good, makes your foundation go on super smooth
  40. Nice budget friendly option

    Jacqui

    This 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.
  41. Pretty Good...

    Narude_0

    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.
  42. Pore reducing

    GB

    I 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.
  43. Amazing value

    Leah

    Definitely 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.
  44. Love Love Love

    Kayla

    Absolutely 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
  45. Great if you have oily skin.

    Daisym

    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.
  46. Sunk into my skin like butter.

    jessica

    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.
  47. awful on dry skin

    tracy

    this had the worst texture on my dry skin, it didn't make me look flawless and felt gross and sticky
  48. Not my top primer, but best value by far

    Alicia

    This 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...

    ellis

    I really liked this. It made my foundation go on so smoothly and it is so affordable compared to others on the market
  50. So bad

    Lisa

    I 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.
  51. Great price, great product!

    Rebecca

    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!
  52. The best and most affordable primer I’ve tried!

    Shereace

    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.
  53. Very nice

    Lee

    It'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.
  54. pretty good but basic

    charlotta

    nice as a basic primer fills in pores and creates a pretty smooth, but not flawless complexion. However, the price for the product is excellent.
  55. Omg

    Carly

    I've gone from a $100 primer to this one.. and I definitely do not regret it. I love it!!
  56. Nailed it

    Sarah

    Great product at a good price. Don't see myself changing primers any time soon! Will definitely be a repeat purchase customer.
  57. My Go To

    madi

    Can 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.
  58. Great price

    Cheri

    This 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.
  59. Great

    Sophie

    I 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
  60. Get Primed!

    Nads

    This is a great primer, however a bit fussy with the type of foundation you use so make sure it’s a good match!
  61. Love this brand

    Abi

    This 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.
  62. Cheap but Amazing

    The Best Primer

    I 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!
  63. besttt

    kish

    have 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.
  64. A little goes a long way

    Abi

    Been 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.
  65. Great Finish

    Pammie

    This primer enables my foundation to be applied evenly and leaves my overall makeup flawless.
  66. So glad I finally found this

    Bronte

    This 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
  67. very smoothing

    john

    smoothes out all my pores and is great for before putting on a face of makeup. I really liked this
  68. Wow

    Senz

    This primer is so good! Great great great one of the best with a great price.
  69. Love the ordinary

    Jen

    It 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.
  70. Very smoothing

    Asma

    Makes my skin soft and matte and it blurs our pores. Perfect for oily skin girls
  71. Primer without the hole in your wallet

    shreya

    A 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
  72. great daily primer

    sophie

    have 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
  73. Okay

    Mischi

    The primer can't hide my large pores completely but helps to control shine and my foundation seems to sit better and last longer.
  74. High quality and inexpensive

    Kelly

    This 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.

  76. Awesome

    Rach

    For 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!
  77. Creamy

    TASH

    At 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.
  78. Does the job

    Nikita

    Primer 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.
  79. love it

    rania

    Love this primer. Feels great on my skin and is a 5 star quality for a great budget price!
  80. Great!

    Simone

    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.
  81. Better than I thought

    Bec

    I 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!
  82. Good value for money

    Ava

    I 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.
  83. Easy

    Simone

    I 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.
  84. Smooth moves

    Torza

    I 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.
  85. Ordinary's Best primer

    Lara

    I 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)
  86. Great!

    Lucy

    Love this brand. This is my fav primer and it is such a good price!!
  87. Good primer for price

    Amy

    This 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.
  88. Good

    Mik

    Fills 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.
  89. Nice primer

    Maria

    It 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.
  90. Nice

    Linda

    I was expecting my foundation to last a bit longer than it has but still a nice primer.
  91. Great

    Jag

    This primer went on lovely and smoothly. I will purchase again

  94. Affordable

    Charlie

    This 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
  95. Anything But Ordinary Primer

    Meggs

    I 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...

  96. yes yes yes

    Jess

    Done ✅ 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)
  97. Great price great product

    Rachel.23

    Love 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.
