Additional Information

Hydrating Face Primer- Small is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 309.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible - Smells and feels like cooking oil I usually love ELF products, so I figured I would give this a try. Big mistake. Seriously, the smell of this stuff make me think I had just finished a shift standing next to a large fryer. And it feels like you are just making your face a huge oil spil. The cap does not stay on either, so it ends up getting all over your makeup bag if you are not careful. I legit bought it on the go and threw it away in the parking lot trash can of where I was going.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I have used this primer on and off for years and always come back to it. I like the way it hydrates my dry skin and allows for my foundation to stay fresh and glowing all day. I find that shaking it up before use gives the perfect gel-like consistency rather than a liquid oily texture. Love this primer over my more pricey ones. Little goes a long way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not the best! i LOVE elf, considering most of my products are elf. But this hydrating "primer" did not do it for me. I was looking for a primer and came across this one. I bought it and left the store and without even having it for a whole day I knew I had to return it. First, the texture. It is almost like you are putting straight up oil on your face. I know it says "hydrating", but many other ones like this that i have tried are not oil-like. Secondly, the SMELL! It has an extremely overpowering scent, even with just having it on my face for not even a whole day! I can smell it on my face with all the other makeup products. I kept on wanting to give it a second chance, but every time I put it on my hand it made me gag. But, i do LOVE elf cosmetics, just not this particular product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from God awful smell!! The product overall isn't bad but the smell is HORRIBLE!! Not sure why elf made such a bad smelling product! I'm going to try another primer of theirs and hope it doesn't have the same odor

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Crumbles my makeup Instead of leaving my face soft it leaves it tacky and it crumbles my concealer off as I’m applying it. Should have invested money on a better primer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product but horrid smell that smell though....it has the worst smell ever. it smells like oil or a mechanics shop.very strong when you put it on but it does go away eventually but not quick enough for my liking. it goes on really well, hydrates skin, makeup really does go on nicely but it does make your skin look a bit oily at first. i do love this product BUT the smell is extremely off putting, i bought this because i wanted a hydrating primer but ended up with a very smelly primer. i will keep using it because it does look good under a matte foundation but really do hope Elf does something about the smell

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smells like old grease I can’t get past the smell. It’s not a chemical smell to me. It reminds me of old crayons or old greasy wax. How did this pass inspection?

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

Asked by: McCallMargaret
It has clogged my pores, I personally do not recommend this product for acne prone skin. It did give nice results as far as how it looks though, so for normal skin it should be good.

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.
Answered by: Ames B
Date published: 2018-02-08

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.
