My Prime™ Multi-Purpose Mattifying Moisturizer

We may like lip-synching to Grease, but when it becomes a mantra for the finish of our moisturizer, we feel like a beauty school dropout. Finding the right dry-touch formula is challenging, but this cream offers the right amount of moisture without any heaviness or residue. After just two weeks of use, a whopping 90 percent of study participants noticed an improvement in their skin. Looks like this is one relationship that’ll last longer than a summer.

Doesn't absorb
Sampled

I was excited to try this. I don't like to wear a lot of makeup and a mattifying moisturizer seemed like the perfect thing for weekends. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with it as it left a film on my face that never seemed to absorb. After two attempts to work with it, I ended up throwing the sample in the trash.

This was too matte for me. Made my skin look dry and dull.

Great for those who hate shine
Sampled

I have dry skin- so this did not give me the dewey look that I like- BUT I am going to pass it onto my friend Carla who doesn't like a shine at all and she will love it. That's what I enjoy about Birchbox- even if it is not a good match for me- muy friends get a little extra love!

Not for me....
Sampled

Texture was ok, but as others have mentioned it seemed to make my face more oily halfway through the day. I'm sure this product would work for others, but it doesn't seem like the right fit for me.

not so hot
Sampled

I didn't like this product. Texture is important to me and this felt gummy/sticky when applying. The appearance of my skin was ok for a couple of hours but by midday, my face felt oily and gooey and looked shiny.

Matte, but not for me
Sampled

not crazy about the consistency of this moisturizer. It felt a little heavy to me, but it did create a nice primed finish for make up

Ewww...slick face!
Sampled

I did not like the sample of the moisturizer at all. I was super excited to try something that claimed to be mattifying on my very oily-combo face. This product was not for me. My face was shiny before I left the house for work - after putting on mattifying primer and foundation, as well as powder. Bummer.

Caked on
Sampled

This product turned my make up into a caked on layer that just didn't help. I would not buy and I am comparing to the too faced product I have used. I also tried Tart but it wasn't as good as the Too Faced brand I have.

Not Moisturizing
Sampled

This moisturizer was not moisturizing for my winter dry skin.
I found it extremely difficult to apply to my face.
I like products that glide across my face and do not have to be pushed all about just to get it somewhere.
This is probably not the product for me.

Too thick, drags
Sampled

Really didn't like it. I already use a great foundation primer and a good moisturizer, and this was not going to replace either. Thick, like paste, and uncomfortable on my skin.
