Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is amazing! I have extremely dry skin and have tried every moisturizing product under my foundation and nothing has prepped my skin like this has. Please, please keep making this! It's been out of stock for two weeks now and I'm about to lose it because your website is the only place I've ever been able to find it sold!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where has this been all my life? Perfection in a stick! I have dry and mature skin, so foundation application (even after taking care of my skin) is an issue; especially around my mouth and chin area. After using this product on the problem areas on my face, my foundation was flawless...absolutely perfect and lasted without any transference at all. LOVE THIS PRODUCT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO MOISTURIZING! I absolutely love this product! It works great as a base for under your concealer. Makes everything go on so smoothly & smooths out fine lines. Don't ever stop making this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product First time I bought it was skeptical as most items for hydrating my skin leave me oily. Not this. It is perfect for my combination skin. Bought two more so I wouldn’t run out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feels so refreshing I purchased this when I did a recent video on my youtube channel “full face elf” (link: ) I purchased this to prime my face and I love the way it feels. Aside from that I’m not sure it extends the wear of my makeup but it certainly helps my foundation apply smoothly. Great base! Awesome quality, elf, you rock!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OBSESSED!!! I bought for the first time about a month or two ago -- and have since purchased fro my mother and friends. I love this formula, it is light and moisturizing and an awesome primer! When it is back in stock I will buy myself a few more, although you KNOW I already have a backup. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feeling Bought this a month ago and love how it feels, the only thing is that just rubbing it on your face doesn’t rub it in, so I have to with my hands.
