Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love using this as a primer. My skin gets so dry and patchy in the winter, and this product feels so smooth and silky on my skin before applying my foundation! It doesn't have a greasy or oily feel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Will buy again! I have dry/flaky skin and this is now part of my daily routine. I use this product even without makeup for a natural dewy look, it makes my face feel fresh and moisturized without it feeling heavy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product men a little to quick drying I like this product quite a lot. My skin feels hydrated after applying it and my makeup sticks to it and lasts quite a bit longer than without it. However, I do have one problem witch the product and that is that it is very quick drying. Because of the stick-form, I like to rub the product into my skin with my hands, both to spare product and to make sure I have the product everywhere. The problem is that it is so quick drying, it is a little hard to work with, and I find myself use quite a bit more product than i would like. Wouldn't recommend it to people with sensitive skin either, because you do need to drag it a bit, so a liquid alternative might be a better option. The product in self is, however, quite nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lasting hydration I'm so glad I picked this up. After trying many different primers, this is by far the best. It glides on and spreads easily with a slight cooling effect. The humectant ingredients work overtime and leave my skin feeling SO supple while creating a smooth base for makeup. My makeup stays looking freshly applied. I'll be stocking up - please don't discontinue!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a steal! I bought this product a month ago after watching a beauty guru on YouTube use it and it was worth risking something I hadn't tried before. For just 8$, it's a steal. It hydrates my skin and is the perfect base for my make up. Best part is that it's super easy to apply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works amazing I pretty much never write reviews, but this stuff is AMAZING for my skin. All other creamy/lotion moisturizer's I've used always make me feel like I have a layer on my face and leave me super oily/shiny by the end of the day. This stuff is super light weight and makes my skin feel super hydrated and soft without making me shiny or feeling gross by the end of the day. Also significantly reduced my flakes and redness on my face. I think I went through the whole thing in probably 2-3 months time and I used it generously every day after cleanser. For reference; I have mildly sensitive combination skin

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells fishy, but still a good product This stick is nice and hydrating, but it overwhelming smells like fish. When it’s on your face the smell goes away after a few minutes, but if you have that puppy open, be prepared to smell fish. The smell is bearable, and I will still use the product, but I don’t recommend for those sensitive to scents.

Can you buy this in store? I cant find it at target or walmart. Is this only available online? If you have bought it in a store where?

Asked by: Kassiemae
I have bought this product in store. I have only seen it at an ELF store though because when I saw it I told myself I had to buy it and I still have it. I am about to run out, but I always see it in my local ELF store.

E.L.F., can you please make this & other/more products fragrance-free (& artificial color-free would be great, too)? Fragrances are very irritating to a lot of us, &/or just plain unpleasant & unnecessary. I would buy so many E.L.F. products but for this.

Asked by: Saire
I also like the scent and maybe they should make more without for people that it does break out or don't like the smell. BUT keep the scent for those who do like it.
