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.

Nourishing a Plus but Feel only OK
Sampled

I was really impressed by the amount of product contained in this small container. In addition the thickness of the product made me feel like it really was helping to moisturize my skin.

That said the feel of the product on the hand is more like Aquaphore than an expensive lotion/cream and although it settles into the skin and doesn't leave it greasy the thickness makes it hard to apply and then quickly apply foundation or other products.

I would recommend this for using at night before bed and after longer use I bet would pay off for diminishing wrinkles and puffiness.

Good product, simple concept
Sampled

The sample was too small to use more than twice, so it was difficult to see "results" from this. It did go on great, smoothed my skin but made it so that it was more of a flat look, as opposed to shiny. It absolutely can't be used "as makeup" as it offers no coverage. Good product though, does exactly what it says.

Good for combination skin
Sampled

So far this has held up to the 95+ degree weather we're experiencing and is still going strong. This is a perfect compromise for those of us who have combination skin. It worked really well to moisturize my desert-dry cheeks, but kept my nose from getting oily by the day's end. Success!

Just okay

I received this sample in my June Birchbox. I have notoriously cranky skin that is dry and irritable in patches and oily in others. This moisturizer might work well for someone that does not have sensitive skin. This caused me to get red and flaky in areas, especially around my nose and chin. The scent was mild and unoffensive. I had some mild stinging in my more sensitive facial areas when I put this on. I would recommend this product to a friend who did not have sensitive skin.

Love-- But the Price :-/
Sampled

I love love love this moisturizing primer/ priming moisturizer especially since we're experiencing a massive heatwave at the moment. Truly, Birchbox couldn't have sent a better product in my June box! I would have happily bought the full size of this product if it were not for the price . . . almost $70! I'm afraid there are plenty of other moisturizers and primers that work just as well and are a fraction of the price. Sadly, I'll have to give this one a miss.

I didn't use this on my face because I was a bit concerned about the "matte" aspect actually making me look older. However I did use it on my hands and they have never looked better! They lost ten years in two days! This is a purchase I will make.

Mattifying!!!

For summer when your skin is already shinny at times this is a perfect moisturizer to just put on and walk out the door without any make up. I've used this several times on Saturdays when i go run errands and after being in the heat my dace doesn't feel oily like some moisturizers can do.
