Good makeup primer - 11-12-2018 by

This is a good makeup primer that's affordable and doesn't make my skin breakout!

Not fantastic like their other products - 10-12-2018 by

I don’t care for this primer - it applies fine but seems to do nothing to increase foundation wear time and also it can pill when layered over other serums.

Nice - 29-11-2018 by

It is a nice primer and a great price. Skin feels good and looks good too. For the price I would recommend.

Lovely product - 29-11-2018 by

This product goes on easily and feels great. I purchased the foundation as well and am very very pleased with the result. Excellent products. Great prices

Best primer! - 27-11-2018 by

Accidentally added this to my order and so glad I did! Very light primer that doesn’t have the greasiness or thickness of other primers. Perfect to use with The Ordinary foundation.

Beautifully light and silky - 27-11-2018 by

Like other reviewers I have tried a few primers but this is the best so far.
The reason I like this is because it is lightweight yet delivers a silky canvas to apply my foundation.
I have dry 50+ skin and need to ensure my foundation does not get stuck in the dry spots.
Have used it with:
The Ordinary Serum
Designer Brands Luminous Hydrating Foundation - excellent for older skin
Revlon Photoready.

First time using Primer - 26-11-2018 by

Having combination skin I wasn’t so sure what a good primer were to be for me however I did stumble across this primer a) because it was affordable and b) because it said it would leave your skin still looking and feeling dewy after foundation application. I wouldn’t say it did still leave my skin looking dewy but it did make some areas of my face look much more smooth.

Best so far - 22-11-2018 by

I've tried many different primer in my life. I thought I had found my favourite, but I was wrong. I took the plunge to try this product and it works 100% in making my skin smooth so that my foundation looks perfect. I'm going to stay using this primer as the price and the result really impressed me.

So affordable and easy to use - 19-11-2018 by

Loved this product - never used the brand before but after reading and hearing about I thought I'd buy some stuff to try out as it's so affordable and the primer was one of my buys - absolutely love it! Not only is the price point wonderful and affordable but the quality of the product is great - so easy to use and a little goes a long way! I usually use it directly on my face before foundation etc but I had one particular foundation that is so hard to spread so I mixed the primer directly with the foundation and then applied on my face and it spread like a dream! Makeup definitely lasts longer. Highly recommend! I've used lots of primers much more expensive and I'll never waste my money again!

Great product - 19-11-2018 by

Goes on smooth and is a great base for make up

So smooth - 12-11-2018 by

This primer allows foundation to glide on smoothly and evenly. Improves longevity and gives a dewy glow.

Fabulous - 26-10-2018 by

I was surprised by this, but I really love it, my foundation definitely glides on better, and my skin glows with this!

decent worth the try - 24-10-2018 by

i have combination skin and this actually wasn't as bad as the other the ordinary primer. The smell of this primer is a fit funky" like earthy " but it works great i love the softness of this product and i feel this would be great on dry skin. i love the packaging too im a sucker for packaging. A little goes a long way with this product. If you after a primer from a great brand and have dry to combo skin i highly reccomend!

⭐️⭐️⭐️PRIMER⭐️⭐️⭐️ - 23-10-2018 by

After having been using primers for many years, I will never use another!! This is the best, smoothest and easily applied I’ve found. Love it!! Thank you The Ordinary and Adore Beauty

Holy Grail of Primers. - 23-10-2018 by

I will never use another Primer again, nor will I ever be without this product. No longer does my make up cling to dry patches or crease around my eyes. My foundation glides on effortlessly and my skin feels soft all day - this stuff basically erases pores and there is next to no wait time for it to set. A pea sized amount is more than enough too. For me, this is the HG of primers.

Helps foundation not cling to dry patches - 11-10-2018 by

I found this primer helps my foundation glide on without clinging to my dry patches. Previously my skin was so dry my foundation would just sink into my face but this product ensures it stays put. A little goes a long way.

Good - 10-10-2018 by

One of the best primers I have used. Doesn't make skin oily, which is perfect! Also leaves no skin feeling very soft.

Smooth and silky primer - 09-10-2018 by

A lovely product that gives you a great smooth base for makeup. It goes quite far so you dont need a huge amount!

Great product for the price point - 03-10-2018 by

I use this every day and it is a fantastic primer for the price. It goes on well and creates a smooth base for my foundation.

Great Price, Great Product - 27-09-2018 by

I have dry and sensitive skin, using this primer before a foundation or CC cream results in a smooth, even application; make-up doesn’t crease in my frown lines. Looove it.

Average - 27-09-2018 by

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 my foundation is long lasting.

On the fence - 25-09-2018 by

Not sure how I feel about this one, but it gets 4 stars based on the price. If you get the amount right, it can feel nice and smooth on your skin. But if you use too much of this, or perhaps used too many other products in the same routine, the product pills/balls on your face. When that happens, you have to cleanse and start over as foundation won't go on very nicely.

On The Fence - 24-09-2018 by

I am of MEDIUM-TAN skin tone.
I have DRY skin which sometimes feels quite tight.
I sometimes have DRY patches and definitely have REDNESS on my face.

I bought this primer along with my serum foundation as I thought they would work well together considering they are from the same company.

Unfortunately I didn't love this primer but nor did I hate it.

Upon application, the product has a silicone feel. It feels very nice and velvety whilst applying on my face and I guess it was nice to put the foundation on top but I didn't see noticeable difference with pores or dry patches.

I do have moisturisers that can do the same thing as this primer so I would prefer to use those.

I don't think I would repurchase this product but would only recommend to someone who is looking for a cheaper alternative who wants to try something different but I feel like it would be most beneficial for those who have minimal to no pores with dry-normal skin with no dry patches.

Fantastic product - 19-09-2018 by

This product is great. It leaves a silky smooth finish and works with my foundation fantastically. The price is also really affordable. Can not fault this product at all.

Love - 14-09-2018 by

I love this primer. It's silky smooth and provides a really great base for foundation. I haven't yet decided if i like this one more than the adhesive primer by The Ordinary, but I'm loving interchanging between the two!

Perfect Primer - 13-09-2018 by

This primer is definitely a life saver! I have dry, acne prone skin so this primer has been a miracle for smoothing out my complexion and ensuring product doesn't cling anywhere it shouldn't. This primer has given me the smoothest application yet and is perfect for hiding pesky pores. Not to mention the price point!
Please note: a little goes a long way. My sister once used this unsupervised and couldn't understand why the product had balled up into a gloopy mess. She wasn't very impressed by my endless amusement at her clumped face. Moderation is key!

amazing primer - 12-09-2018 by

Lightly glides on! Super smooth & feels good for your skin. Doesn't clog! I always wonder if a primer even makes a difference but this one I love applying because it has skincare benefits...

Amazing - 11-09-2018 by

This product has cut my use of foundation in half. Now a little goes a very long way. I will be buying this again

The name says it all - 03-09-2018 by

This primer's runny formula makes it easy to use, and following make up easy to apply. It doesn't hide pores as well as a mousse primer, but I still love it. It makes blending foundation an absolute dream!

Re-ordered several already! - 29-08-2018 by

This primer feels EXTREMELY smooth on the skin and didn't seem to make my breakout worse. It also does seem to help improve the staying power of my foundation (I use Clinique anti blemish solutions), along with my MAC finishing spray - really important for me as I often have to wear a surgical mask, which rubs off a lot of makeup!

Ok but not amazing - 27-08-2018 by

Good for the price, but my face feels quite greasy and clogged after applying.
Didn't notice a huge difference to my makeup longevity since wearing it.

So smooth! - 24-08-2018 by

I love this primer. Would definitely recommend buying it.

Makes Makeup Application A Breeze - 22-08-2018 by

I’m happy with how this product blends prior to foundation. I’m happy that this product helps smooth out foundation easier. Though the reason I like to buy primer is to provide longevity throughout the day for my makeup which I didn’t find that this product is better at doing. For price, the product is however value for money.

Simple Primer - 21-08-2018 by

This is a good, simple, silicon primer. Other primers often dry out my skin, but this one is very hydrating and really improves the appearance of the texture of my skin. It doesn't help my make up stay on longer, but it is very smooth and light to apply and certainly makes my skin look more flawless and soft. I worry with primers that they will cause a breakout since I'm prone to that, but this one hasn't. I use it under a foundation or even on it's own and just put a bit of powder over the top. It makes my skin look well hydrated and 'dewy'. A good, simple primer.

Not for me, unfortunately - 21-08-2018 by

I have classic combination skin, and have struggled to find a combination of primer and foundation that will last all day. This primer does well with my BECCA Ever Matte Shine Proof Foundatio, allowing it to go on more smoothly. But to be fair, that foundation lasts well on its own. Sadly this primer doesn’t last the distance with lighter foundations. So the search goes on!

Ok product, would need to try it with silicone-based foundation - 20-08-2018 by

This primer is silicone based so only use it if you have a silicone based foundation. I didn't realise this when I purchased, so it didn't work for me. Another thing to note is the texture is quite heavy and thick, it definitely feels like you're smearing plastic on your face! I'm sure it would probably work better with silicone based foundations but it very much didn't with my foundation (The Ordinary Serum Foundation)

I guess this review is just a warning for those who, like me, don't own silicone based foundation and are thinking of buying this!

Simple product - 14-08-2018 by

Your standard, silicone primer, does the job at a reasonable cost. I have oily skin and use this with a liquid, water-based foundation. It makes a big difference vs no primer. It hasn't caused breakouts. What's not to like?

Favorite primer - 13-08-2018 by

this product have good liquidity, easily absorb by skin, will help the application of foundation, enhance lasting effect of foundation.

Dupe for HG primer - 13-08-2018 by

This primer is great quality and very similar to the hourglass primer but for a fraction of the price. It's a little thicker but feels so smooth on the skin. A little goes a long way and don't put too much otherwise can feel a little oily. The only downside is the dropper bottle. It would work much better in a squeeszy bottle because the formula is quite thick it's not so easy to use the dropper provided.

Smooth base - 12-08-2018 by

I've never used anything like this. Just one drop of the primer spread across the face makes it feel so smooth and ready for make-up. Really quick and easy, and wont run out of it any time soon!

Love it - 31-07-2018 by

I changed from NP to ordinary and my makeup stays on all day

Love - 30-07-2018 by

Unfortunately because of the price of this product I had low hopes for it but since using it I won't look back the product is a little bit slimy and seems to be heavy but once applied it leaves your face feeling smooth and silky my makeup goes on great and last all day. It may be a small bottle but a little goes a long way!

Primer ideal for liquid foundation - 30-07-2018 by

I am 50 and have been unable to find a primer that works well with liquid foundation until I tried this one. I have tried chemist and high end primers and found this one is the best for my chemist brand and high end liquid foundations. Using a small amount and spread well this makes my skin look flawless and velvety. It is not drying and gives the magic Ying effect I want and prevents the foundation from setting into my wrinkles and fine lines. Making my lines/wrinkles disappear under foundation and makeup is the holy grail for me. My makeup holds up all night. I couldn’t recommend this product high enough. It is great as a base for ageing skin.

Great value for money - 25-07-2018 by

I have drier skin so used to avoid primers as i felt they didn't do much but make my skin feel dried out not long after. But i read the reviews on this and also had great luck with other The Ordinary products so gave it ago and won't be looking back. It's wonderful

Better than the other ordinary primer - 24-07-2018 by

Before I submit a rave review I want to talk about my hatred for the packaging of this primer.
I love the ordinary products and I will continue to purchase this primer. However, this packaging is not right for the product. I assumed this primer would be more of a water based liquidy primer based on the other ordinary primer and the packaging.
The primer is just too thick for the dropper applicator. It doesn't work on the dropper and clings to the outside in a thick glob which is a little messy. It would have worked just fine in the tube packaging that the other primer comes in.

Despite this. I love this primer!
There is no way I will ever buy an expensive primer again. A little goes a long way with this. It doesn't cling to dry patches and it works amazingly over serums and other skincare products. I love it under the ordinary serum foundation for a healthy and glowy base.
Love love love

Perfect for smooth foundation application! - 23-07-2018 by

I really wasn't sure when I opened the bottle for the first time, as the product feels almost greasy compared to other primers I have used but it is actually amazing! It doesn't feel greasy at all once you've applied it, it feels almost velvety and makes your foundation look perfect and smooth. Fantastic price makes it even better!

High quality - small budget - 20-07-2018 by

This feel like a good pore filling fluid primer similar to a L’Oréal infallible gel primer I used a while ago. I don’t have the bests collection of primers, some I’ve paid more than others for but I always end up going back to this inevitable because it is the most reliable and a little goes a long way.

dried up inside the bottle - 18-07-2018 by

For the price you get a lot of product, however, the product tends to dry up inside the bottle once it is opened. The product also balled up around the edge of the bottle. The product itself is decent, I would use it around my nose or acne area so foundation can go on smoothly. However, I won't repurchase it.

looooveee it! - 12-07-2018 by

For someone with dehydrated skin, this primer is so goooood! it sinks into pores well, it feels velvety smooth and looks amazing under foundation. Its such a cheap but valuable product. I will continue to repurchase forever and always.

bargain buy - 02-07-2018 by

Im not completely sold on this but thought I would give it a try. I agree the application is a bit different - an eye dropper, and it just seams a little oily for me. but it does the job and makeup goes on smoothly.

Great budget primer - 28-06-2018 by

I use this now as my everyday primer and am currently purchasing my third bottle. A little goes a long way so the little bottle lasts a fair while. I find though that even if I do accidentally apply too much, it doesn't affect my make up (Revlon Colorstay) and it still goes on well - I haven't noticed any pilling. It smooths my skin and provides a good base (oily/combo skin). This is my fave of The Ordinary primers and will continue to purchase it!

good primer - 27-06-2018 by

for the cost, you cant beat this primer. it definitely does the job. I've use a ton of primers, and few work better than this. it may feel to heavy for some people, but I like that feeling of an extra layer of moisture. it keeps my skin feeling soft and hydrated throughout the day.

Good smoothing primer - 25-06-2018 by

This primer instantly makes skin feel so smooth and is the perfect base to use under liquid foundations! However the packaging is very messy and the primer is a little too thick to be picked up through the dropper and starts to dry and congeal in the bottle after some time making it very difficult to use. It would be a lot better in a tube or other packaging but the primer itself is great!

Love it - 25-06-2018 by

I actually quite like this primer, it goes on very smooth and I think does a good job.

LOVE IT! - 21-06-2018 by

I usually don't see the fuss with primers as I have insanely sweaty skin and sweat bleeds through all the primers I use no matter what. However this stuff is AMAZING. As soon as you put it on, you can see your skin has a blurred AND mattified effect so you know you're in for a thrill ride.

I have not stopped using it despite all the other primers I own, I love it. Plus I love the ink bottle gimmick for this primer, it works wonders and makes you feel like a chemist LOL.

Surprisingly Great! - 20-06-2018 by

Being in the market for a new primer, I decided to try The Ordinary's High-Spreadability Fluid Primer, for use under Mac foundations that were both thicker and thinner consistency. I have always found choosing the right primer difficult as many work well with only one of your foundations.

This primer is so good and so affordable! A little goes a long way, it is smooth on the skin and does not leave on oily film (it does feel a little oily or feels as though it will leave a layer atop the skin but settles in so well). What I found super impressive is that it helps not show up my dry spots around the corners of my nose, where my nose meets my face.

I'm not sure about if it extends my foundation wear, as I don't really suffer much from an oily T-zone or anything but at this price, it is worth trying for yourself!

Works well, Bad smell - 19-06-2018 by

I bought this because of the cheap price and good reviews. I have dry/ combination skin and I still found the primer very oily on my skin. Would not recommend this primer to anyone with oily skin. The smell is not great, however, after applying foundation it is not too noticeable. The primer tends to hold my foundation well. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a cheap primer, however it is not the best one I have tried.

Good primer, good price - 13-06-2018 by

I really like this primer - it has made a big difference under my Nude by Nature Mineral Cover and making it sit much more nicely on my skin. I haven't used a primer for a while but this one had good reviews and I'm glad I bought it, It's not too expensive and sits nicely on the face. Would recommend.

Messy! - 04-06-2018 by

The primer works well - if you can apply the right amount. The fluid is quite thick and has an eye dropper applicator. Imagine trying to draw up thickened cream in an eye dropper. It ends up down the side of the bottle which I then put on my face and apply too much - resulting in my make up clumping. I am now wiping the bottle and excess and throwing it way - the applicator is messy and wasteful. Not recommended.

I will use up what I have and change to something else.

Going to try again - 21-05-2018 by

I bought this primer because I liked the packaging (less plastic) and the brand doesn't test on animals.

When I first used the primer I was amazed because it felt sooooooo nice on my skin. It was so smooth and mattified my skin but wasn't drying.

Then, I put my foundation on... My foundation DID NOT like this primer. It kept moving around and wasn't smooth at all. I wiped it all off and used some of my old primer instead.

After reading some of the reviews on here, I am going to try it again but not use as much and not wait so long in between. Hopefully I'll have more luck.

Love it! - 20-05-2018 by

Easy to apply. Needs to do it quickly thought as it dries up pretty quickly.

Less is More! - 18-05-2018 by

This product has quite a strong smell, but once you get past that its not a bad primer. Definitely better in small doses. I found if I used too much my foundation was a little greasy. Use sparingly and you will get a good matte look finish.

Unsure - 16-05-2018 by

I find that this primer makes my foundation pill, however it looks amazing on the skin without any makeup over it. It is great at minimising the appearance of pores and combating oiliness.

Great value for money - 15-05-2018 by

I bought this as I thought it was worth a try for such a good price, I was not disappointed ! Just one small drop goes such a long way. I’ve found it balances out my skin and helps my foundation stop settling in fine lines such as smile lines. Definitely recommend!

Essential to have! - 14-05-2018 by

This primer is really nice and smooth, it’s very light and helps blend foundation out. My makeup asts all day when I use this primer.

A little bit goes a long way - 12-05-2018 by

Found it to be better than the primer in the tube (also by the ordinary). Little goes a long way. great base for makeup

AMAZING - 08-05-2018 by

I couldn't rave about a primer enough. I LOVE this. My makeup has never looked better when using this primer. I would get horrid dry under eyes, foundation would always separate. All my foundation worries went away instantly!

Won't be repurchasing - 08-05-2018 by

I'm not a big fan of this primer, and am going back to my old brand. I don't like the way it feels - it's a bit tacky and unpleasant. Plus the packaging is down-right annoying.

One of the best! - 08-05-2018 by

I've used several primers, both high end and drug store and this is MAGIC. It's so easily blended into my skin and you only need a small amount (less than a pea size) to cover your forehead (and I've got a doozy!). I don't even use the dropper and just take some product from the dropper wand itself. It is sort of like a serum/gel like consistency and spreads well.

It has AMAZING staying power for the price and my makeup doesn't separate as it has done with other primers I've used.

Apply it and let it sink into your skin before applying any makeup. I let it sit for around a minute, or until it feels velvet smooth.

100% buy!

Pretty good but the packaging doesn't fit the purpose! - 07-05-2018 by

I actually quite like this primer, it goes on very smooth and I think does a good job.

But the bottle/drip needs to be reassessed! I basically would need to use the drip tube to wipe primer onto my face as the product is too thick to actually be used via the drip.

Aside from that, I quite like it - trying the other TO primer that comes in a squeeze tube (less cute but more effective hopefully!) so fingers crossed I love that one too.

Surprisingly good - 07-05-2018 by

I am a die-hard silicone primer fan, so I did not expect to like this primer as much as I did. It is as the name suggests - a fluid primer that increases spreadability of your makeup. I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't leave my skin feeling oily, and the lightweight formula was perfect for a light daytime look. You can't go past it for the price.

Disappointed - 30-04-2018 by

I got half way through the bottle and it started to smell off. I couldn’t use it anymore as the smell was really bad and had to throw it out. The lid was always put on properly and never contaminated the dropper by putting on the skin. Besides that I found it was an ok primer but certainly used better. Haven’t found any of The Ordinary products I’ve bought any good. Wish they were because of the price point.

Good, but not phenomenal primer - 30-04-2018 by

Good primer for the price. Creates a nice smooth surface for foundation application. Makes your skin feel lovely. Doesn’t do much for longevity.
For the price, it has a great quality feel.

In love with this primer - 29-04-2018 by

Reviews are accurate - this is a great primer! Love it's consistency. Spreads effortlessly over the skin and leaves a clean weightless base for makeup. Very impressed. I've just ordered more products from this brand based on how much I like this primer.

Good budget friendly primer! - 29-04-2018 by

Soaks well into the skin and helps blend the foundation well. Doesn’t last as long as my other primers but if your having a dry skin problem this would definitely suit your skin well.

Really smooth primer - 19-04-2018 by

This primer is really nice and smooth, it’s very light and helps blend foundation out very well. My foundation lasts all day when I use this primer. My go to primer every day!

Good price primer - 18-04-2018 by

Agree with some other reviews - this product is a similar consistency as the Hourglass primer, but with a much more reasonable price! It has a slight matte effect to it, and a little goes a long way. I still love my hourglass primer and keep that for special occasions, but The Ordinary primer is a good substitute for everyday/light makeup wear.

Amazing price, quality product - 12-04-2018 by

I have had such excellent results using this primer. I've tried a lot of primers over the years, this one is good for my dry t-zone & for the price is totally worth it. It lasts a long time as a little bit goes a long way. Perfect for week day work use & I save my expensive primer for weekend use.

Great primer, bad packaging! - 12-04-2018 by

I bought this primer after their High Afherence primer didn’t work well for me. I really like the consistentcy of the fluid primer it keeps my makeup in place, and you only need a very small amount. The price and how long a bottle lasts is really appealing as well. The only downfall of this product is the packaging. The bottle/dropper do not work well with a fluid primer! It’d be much better with a pump. But overall, great product!

Can't live without it! - 11-04-2018 by

I've been using The Ordinary products for just over a month now and recently added this to my everyday skin routine. My face gets quite oily and its tricky to find a primer that doesn't add to this oiliness BUT behold the The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer!

It is easy to apply and not a lot of product is required to cover your face. I've found that i don't have to use as much make up as before this primer. It doesnt make your skin oily and allows my make up to last for an entire day with little to no touch ups.

If you haven't tried it, and LOVE The Ordinary products already get onto this. You wont regret it!

Feels great on the skin and easy on the purse... - 25-02-2018 by

I tried this primer because I had seen reviews where people compared this to the Hourglass Veil Mineral primer. I love that primer, but don't love the price, so gave this one a 17% of the cost of the Hourglass primer there was little to lose.

I'm happy to say that my money was not wasted. This one is a little thinner and is clear, not white - so I wouldn't say it gives exactly the same result, but it comes pretty darn close. For day to day wear I will definitely be using this one - Wow. It's a great product and offers fantastic value. I agree with comments about the packaging, it can be a little messy and unnecessarily difficult to get the product out of the bottle, but it's not a big enough issue to stop me using it.

great primer - not for oily skin - 25-02-2018 by

This primer has great spreadability and smooths everything out but if you use it with oily skin, you might have to set with powder and setting spray otherwide it will slide off your face within a few hours.

Great! - 19-02-2018 by

I also have the other primer from this brand and while I prefer that one over this one, this one is also just as good, I just find that I tend to have to use more of this one. That being said it is an amazing primer and goes on so smoothly and works well with any foundation. The price is great value for what the product does. Highly recommend

Best primer I've tried - 25-01-2018 by

I LOVE this primer. So similar to the hourglass and so much cheaper. Makeup goes on so smoothly. I have dry-normal skin and it works just great for me. Not too matte like many other primers I've tried.

First time user and loving it - 14-12-2017 by

A tiny bit goes a long way. You only need a tiny bit for it to cover your face. I recommend letting it dry before applying foundation.

Amazing primer for the money - 13-12-2017 by

I used this primer for the first time today and I was not disappointed, the smallest amount goes a long way and my face felt silky smooth after application. My foundation (the ordinary coverage foundation) was so easy to apply over the top and my makeup did not budge all day. For the price of this product you definitely cannot go wrong. It’s going straight to the top of my make-up drawer

Wanted to love this, but didn't - 13-11-2017 by

I have dry skin and need a primer to help moisturise and smooth out my skin before makeup. Something about the texture of this did not work for me. Didn't hate it but did not do anything for me either, I wouldn't repurchase for my skin type.

The only primer that works for me!! - 03-11-2017 by

This primer is soooo soft and smooth it's amazing. I had a really hard time being able to find a primer that actually worked to make make up look smooth, but this is absolutely perfect. It's definitely worth the purchase!!

Terrific primer - 01-11-2017 by

For the price and wearability, this primer is the bomb. I usually get flecks of skin lifted and enhanced around my chin whenever I wear foundation, no matter how much I moisturise, exfoliate and prime, or how high end the foundation is. I gave this primer a go because for the price; why not? Best choice I ever made. Made my foundation go on easily and didn't raise the dry patches around my mouth and chin. Love it.

Love the ordinary, and love this primer, makeup goes on smoothly and stays on all night, and especially love how affordable it is.

If you've never used a primer, this is where to start! - 22-10-2017 by

I've never used a primer before now and I wish that I had discovered this gem earlier! I used this for the first time last night and it was AMAZING! I applied by foundation over the top and did not have to use a sponge to blend it in for the first time ever. It kept my makeup in place, did not smudge or make my face feel too oily. Highly recommend!

Brilliant Primer - 16-10-2017 by

This primer is as good as the Hourglass I've been using for years, and at a fraction of the price! There is no scent and the formula dries to matte very fast. It serves as a great base to hold my makeup.

Amazing! - 02-10-2017 by

Found another awesome primer without breaking my bank.
It went on so smoothly, my foundation glided on so carefree and subtle.
I helped keep my makeup lasting all day

Love love LOVE - 31-08-2017 by

Hands down this is the best primer ive used by far!
Ive mostly used high end primers and thought they were nice but this one takes the cake.
The price is also fantastic but I would happily spend $100 on this primer if I had to.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone searching for the perfect primer.

GREAT AND AFFORDABLE! - 22-08-2017 by

As soon as you apply this primer it instantly makes your skin feel smooth and moisturised while also being very light weight. It also makes makeup apply and blend efficiently!!

Love! - 16-08-2017 by

Really loving this primer! I read the Adore Beauty Ultimate Guide to The Ordinary as I wasn't sure which of the primers would suit me best and the article was spot on! I love how this primer makes my skin feel and look, so silky and dewy (but not too dewy). I can tell it is definitely helping my makeup last longer and also helps to stop my foundation settling into smile lines. A great product for such a great price.

Soft smooth finish - 25-07-2017 by

Super soft finish - perfect partner to my becca foundation.
Super cheap but high quality product....almost too good to be true. Highly recommended to all my friends and family!

Winner Winner - 25-07-2017 by

The best primer I've used in forever. I'm a convert and I'll be using it for a long time to come...literally...high-spreadability is an understatement and the bottle will last me for a year, I'm sure. It creates a lovely smooth base and foundation glides on.

I'm recommending to anyone who listens to me - you won't be disappointed in this primer.

Great product - needs to revise packaging - 17-07-2017 by

This is the best primer I've ever used! I use it in conjunction with a silicone beauty blender and Too Faced Born This Way foundation and this primer really helps set my foundation, hold it all day and I find I use about half as much liquid foundation as I would have without it.

It goes on smooth, only needs a small amount and is non-greasy and long lasting. My skin feels hydrated and featherweight <3

The only but (and it's a pretty big but) is that the bottle it comes in means you can't actually get all of the product out. The eye-dropper can barely pick up the primer as it's too thick, and the bottom 15% of the product can only be reached by using a cotton tip or in my case, the end of a brush. It would definitely pay to change it's packaging into a squeezy tube so we can make the most of the wonderful product!!! I will absolutely continue to purchase it, but I'd really like to see a functional change to the packaging.

Best primer yet! - 22-05-2017 by

I've never been a huge fan of primers, but I thought I'd give this one a go when it popped up when shopping for makeup. I hate the feeling of silicone primers but this is not like that. It's definitely silky and feels similar to a silicone primer but doesn't leave the film over your skin that can disrupt some foundations. It does enough to smooth the skin and any texture without feeling heavy. On days where I don't wear makeup I often wear this alone to even out the look and texture of my skin. Would recommend this to anyone starting out with primers, and The Ordinary make such high quality products that are extremely budget friendly. Such an awesome brand.
