Additional Information

Hydrating Face Primer- Small is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 277.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not hydrating at all This product is perfect for creasing as it is a more silicone based texture than anything else. Since it has a more silicone feel to it this primer is less likely to hydrate the skin. The reason why is because compared to an actual hyrdating facial primer it should feel smooth, refreshing on the skin, and actaully moisturizing (like most lotions or moistruziers) but this primer is way too thick, has the feel of oil on the skin, and does't hydrate my face at all. Instead, it feels like an oily thick layer of candle wax on my face. I would switch this out with e.l.f's Hydrating Balm stick that one is really good at hydrating the skin and really helps with the lack of moisture. I give this 2 stars because, again, perfect for creasing but not for hydrating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very oily I have tried many drugstore primers and this is the worst of them. It's SO oily and greasy, my foundation literally slides right off of it, making it look very cakey. If you wipe it with your finger, the foundation with come right off. I usually love elf products, but this one is a no go from me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product I have been using this for several months now. It has literally helped the bags under my eyes to shrink. I only like the small bottle.....the large bottle is too oily for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not expensive but not good. i bought this a while ago and haven't used more than three times. I really wanted a good quality primer that would hydrate my face. This was really oily and greasy. I disliked the feeling of this on my face very much

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loving it I really am likin this primer, but with my foundation it tends to get a bit shiny because it is a hydrating foundation. But if you use it with a different foundation it is very nice and does work on hydrating my skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well, smells bad I bought this a couple months ago and have used this several times. It creates a very smooth, silicone-y feeling canvas for makeup. I wouldn’t say it feels hydrating per se, but it does hydrate the skin. It smells bad, like plastic and chemicals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Me I have tried ELF regular primer (smelled like fish), their brightening lavender (which I liked), and their illuminating primer (glitter in a bottle). All of which I had to use a moisturizer with due to the dry patches on my skin. And then I tried this. The consistency and thinner than their other primers which worried me at first. It does have a slight fish smell but it does what it says. It hydrates all my dry patches and gives my skin an overall dewy look. So far, this one is a winner for me.

Will this clog my pores? Is it ok for people with acne prone skin?

Asked by: McCallMargaret
No, it shouldn't clog your pores unless you're sensitive to dimethicone (silicone), but the majority are not. Worth a try. :) It is okay for acne prone skin - again, unless you find you have a specific sensitivity to dimethicone (silicone).

How many ounces? I'm trying to find where the size is, in ounces, and don't see it (on this and other products). Where is this listed? 

Asked by: charisma1312
0.37 FL oz, it says on this page, in the product description /details. However, it isn't listed on the bottle.

Why aren't the size of the bottles for primers and other items listed anywhere? Am I missing this info? I did read one review that showed the size smaller than .37 and at this cost makes it expensive.

Asked by: myroses
Yes, 0.37 FL oz is correct. The volume is indicated in the product description/ details.

Is this primer silicon based? Thanks!

Asked by: Kat2233
Yes, it is. It contains dimethicone, among other things. Most if not all of ELF's primers contain some sort of silicone.

How do i determine a shade for the primer?

Asked by: judy22
It's transparent on the skin. The hydrating primer on comes in one "color" but it goes on clear. They also do have color correcting primer to correct for redness or sallow skin (they look green and lavender, respectively.).

How much is in the bottle? I heard that only the silver part is filled but not the rest of the bottle? How man uses does it last for?

Asked by: nabii23
It has 0.47 FL oz or 14ml. You don't need much per use. With daily use, it probably would last a least 3-4 wks depending on how much you like to apply.
