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 it - 22-10-2017 by

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

Q. Is this the most affordable primer that actually delivers?
A. 3 x Yes
Helps blur lines - anti-aging! Which i need now more than ever!
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.
