Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - Hydrating - 1.7oz

We chug water before and after our daily jog (okay, three times a week, but who’s counting?). And since our skin is essentially racing through an endless obstacle course—dealing with pollution, UV rays, and other hazards—we give it plenty of hydration, too, with this primer from Laura Mercier. This nourishing formula gives the skin the moisture it needs, plus a daily dose of vitamins to help protect against environmental damage. What’s more, it helps our makeup stay put and color true—so we can look great while keeping our skin happy.

Great primer

It works great, but as I get slightly! older, it fails to fill in those fine lines. Great as a base, can be worn with or without makeup.

Feels like lotion
Purchased

I bought a full-size and wish I'd tried a sample first. I've recently tried two other popular primers that I liked more. It feels like another moisturizer on my face, and while it doesn't feel like it is a negative thing for my skin, I'm not really sure I see the benefit of it as a primer. It could be that it doesn't work well with my foundation formula, but I recommend you try a sample with yours before you go full-size.

too dark and oily for me

looks like bad foundation too orangey because I'm cool and fair. Prefer many other bargain and luxe products over this one. Too oily kind of latexy, and rolled on the skin.

Great for everyday
Sampled

This moisturizer felt great on my skin. It didn't make my skin feel sticky and didn't make it feel like it was clogging them up. Felt like it was great for day or night time use.

really like

I have oily skin and I feel this adds a moisturizing, smooth look without an oily shiny look or feel.

Great Everyday Primer

I believe in the power of primer... When I want a natural, "no makeup" look, I always reach for this primer.

I was skeptical at first because it feels like a lotion but it works like a dream and I love how it makes my skin feel.

To be fair though, if you want something to fill in fine lines and pores then you should reach for something heavier.

Still, I use this when I'm going for a glam look on the areas where I don't need the extra coverage because I think it makes my skin look and feel so healthy!

Good but looking to find a better one

I bought this recently and really love Laura Mercier products to begin with. I have moderate rosacea so I have to be careful with what I buy. This primer does not make my skin redder but it does make my skin break out more. Maybe because it's not oil free? I think I could find a primer that does not cause papule flare ups.

great product

I have this in a regular size and travel size because I love it so much. I feel like it gives my skin a clean canvas when I am applying my make up and it doesn't make me feel weighted down. With some primers you can feel it under your make up but this one is very light weight and effective.
