Prep & Hydrate Balm


Sale Price £ 9.00

Additional Information

Prep & Hydrate Balm is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Everyday Primer!! I was skeptical when I bought this because I have semi-oily and acne prone skin and because it is so inexpensive but... this is so good!! I never moisture under foundation because it just makes it separate. This is enough to moisture and help makeup stick and set right. My skin looks so smooth and not too oily. I love this! Only thing is it smells interesting but the smell does last so its fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Everyday Use I bought this on sale from and started using it every day. Not only is it so soft and silky, but it's made my skin feel amazing. I apply it after cleansing twice a day (morning and night) and my skin is so thankful! The only con I can think of is that there isn't as much product as you think and run through it fairly quickly. It may seem ridiculous, but for $8 I would expect more product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product Ever This is literally one of the BEST purchases I have ever made. Not only does it keep my skin moisturized for the whole day, but my skin has never been better. It’s not flaky or dry anymore!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW!!!! I recently bought this and wow!!! It is sooo smooth to apply and didn't leave my skin feeling greasy or tacky or waxy or sticky! My face is super smooth and even. It smells a little bit fishy, but that is the only negative thing I have to say about this. And it doesn't smell super strongly. It smells like roses and fish cologne, but very subtly and I couldn't even notice when I put it in my face. This was the only thing I put on my face today and my skin was and still is glowing!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New staple I absolutely love this. It is a great primer and it moisturizes my face as well. No oily feeling at all. It actually feels like its cleaning my face when I put it on due to the cooling effect it has. This now will always be found in my make up bag.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Be careful if you have sensitive skin I was really excited to try this product. But when I put it on for the fittest time, it gave me a really bad rash. I used this maybe a week ago and I still have the rash. However, it did have a nice cooling effect at the beginning.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Remains tacky I purchased a pretty big elf haul and I gotta say I was pretty disappointed with a few of them— this being one. The aqua lip tint was the gem even though it was $2 if you can believe that! I wanted this as a moisturizer as I never wear foundation. I tried the hard candy coconut water primer but it was too strong of a cooling sensation and burned my face.. ironically that wasn’t the problem with this one! It never sets in. It remained tacky forever or at least it seemed like. I’ve also noticed a few white heads popping up but since I tried two of their face products I’ll have to narrow it down. I am disappointed with this because it wasn’t advertised as a primer which is the only reason I could think it would remain tacky as to hold makeup.

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!

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.
