Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

After applying sunblock or moisturizer (if desired), apply a pearl-sized amount of primer to face, avoiding eye area. Lightly rub into skin for a minute or two. Wear as is or follow with foundation.

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

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

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.
