Additional Information

Prep & Hydrate Balm is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 195.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The smell I bought this a couple months ago but I never use it even when i first got it I never did, because of the smell. It smells horrible, it sort of smells like fish. I know it's called a balm but it sort of feels like you're putting chapstick on your skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from dupe for MILK HYDRATING PRIMER stick? havent received it yet but am hoping since it looks so much like MILKs product at a fraction of the cost, that it works just as well. However sometimes you find a hidden gem and sometimes you get what you paid for. I read mixed reviews so I decided to give it a try but I am not going to give one to my daughter who has very sensitive skin

Rated 1 out of 5 by from MAKES SENSITIVE SKIN ITCHY At first, I really was head over heels for this product. I thought it was clever that E.L.F put out a stick hydration method when moisturizing the skin. I liked the concept of quick, and on-the-go moisture since I am a flight attendant. After about 1 full week of testing the product, I started noticing things were going wrong. 1. After 5 minutes of applying the stick to my face, it would immediately cause my skin to itch LIKE CRAZY 2. The fragrance in the product could be the cause of a) itchy skin b) breakouts on the jawline that were not there before application 3. Ever so often, there is a nasty dirty sock smell that comes from the stick. Not all the time, but after avid use 4. The product ran out in literally 1 week 5. Price should be lowered since the quality and amount of the product is so low. I feel for an $8 product, especially since E.L.F is cost friendly, you would expect GREAT THINGS from this moisturizer in comparison to the $5 Aqua Spray I used to use. Unfortunately, this product did not compare in the slightest. **If you have very sensitive, rosacea, clogged, or acne prone skin DO NOT BUY THIS.** I was fighting for this product to get a good review, because I loved the cute sea-foam/blue packaging, aloe, and light weight feeling of the stick. However, for the reasons I have listed, I simply cannot give this product a good review for a customer with sensitive skin. DISCLAIMER: E.L.F would really benefit from releasing a purely organic and sensitive skin line for those like myself, who can barley tolerate any products. Organic as in LITERALLY no fragrance, no chemical bi-products, and only using all natural active ingredients.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mediocre at best It works well enough as a primer. I wouldn't use it as a moisturizer because I feel that it isn't hydrating enough. Not to mention the smell - why does elf scent all their products?! It smells like day-old laundry. I wouldn't buy it again, but I am going to keep using the one I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product The product is really very good. It absorbs the foundation and powder and makes the makeup even.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope, Never Again I bought this awhile back to bring with me on a trip. I figured it’d be an easy grab and apply for whenever I needed it. Honestly, it was awful. The smell is terrible. It leaves my face SO greasy (and that’s probably why some people say they break out). My skin doesn’t feel anymore hydrated than it was before, so it’s definitely not going in my cart again. I don’t recommend this at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from smelled weird I bought this product in the summer and before i used it, my skin was clear but after i had started using it- it broke my skin out really bad and the product would just sit on my skin, it wouldn't "melt" into my skin and made my makeup look cakey. There was also an awful smell to it, smelled kind of fishy? I love elf and I love a bunch of their products, but this just wasn't for me!

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.

I have very dry skin. I was wondering if this is a good product?

Asked by: ashleyymariee61
Yes, this is a very good product and I use it everyday just to hydrate my skin even if I am not going to be wearing any makeup that day. I bought it a while ago and I am about to run out of it. I will be repurchasing this item as soon as possible. Hope this helps!
