My skin isn't as young &amp; hydrated as it used to be, so this is perfect under any foundation (I've tried it under liquid, cream, and powder). Nothing settles or cakes, but you have to rub it in! I think anyone having a problem with caking or stickiness is leaving that step out. If you use the product as intended/instructed, it's wonderful. I also use it sometimes after cleansing instead of moisturizer.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2017-07-18</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2017-07-18" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="153991369"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Prep & Hydrate Balm" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">3</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Jaie</span> from <span itemprop="name">Nice Product, High End Price</span> <span itemprop="description">0.51 ounces for $8?

Feels good on the skin and also, fills some of my pores. I have combo skin, so it does make me a little oily but I still love it!! Would be great for dry skin. Gave only 4 stars just because it's not the best for combo or oily skin.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2017-07-03</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2017-07-03" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="150858598"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Prep & Hydrate Balm" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">grahamrobin</span> from <span itemprop="name">One of the best primers I have tried</span> <span itemprop="description">I've tried a lot of different primers, high end and drugstore but none of them really seemed to make any difference. I have combo/oily skin but I do get dry patches, this helps &quot;balance&quot; my skin and makes my makeup last longer than usual. Doesn't need time to &quot;sink&quot; in and really seems to make your foundation adhere perfectly to the skin. I'll purchase it again when I run out for sure.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2017-06-22</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2017-06-22" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="150423523"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Prep & Hydrate Balm" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Lalaland</span> from <span itemprop="name">Ride or die item</span> <span itemprop="description">This is my go to primer....it isnt heavy like the silicone based primers and is quite soothing. I have oily with some parts dry skin and gotta say makeup stays matte with no build up in my face creases, like near my nostrils or smile lines. e.l.f is stepping up their game and i like it. Once this stick is done im definitely repurchasing this stick. Keeping this e.l.f item in my makeup rotaion for sure.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2017-06-19</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2017-06-19" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="150269996"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Prep & Hydrate Balm" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">3</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">boldxasxlove</span> from <span itemprop="name">Needs makeup over it - definitely a primer</span> <span itemprop="description">This is definitely designed as a primer - it's a little too sticky/takes too long to dry for it to be as a standalone balm or moisture stick. I find that on my dry skin, the ELF cream blushes aren't quite creamy enough for me and they're a bit hard to blend. I swipe this over my cheek bones, then use my fingers to blend a cream blush over it, and it blends very nicely. It stays all day as well. I haven't tried it with some of the baked powders/highlighters, but that's my next step - I think this could work well.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2017-06-17</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2017-06-17" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="150206171"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Prep & Hydrate Balm" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">2</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">anesha</span> from <span itemprop="name">Hated It</span> <span itemprop="description">Its like putting any silicone primer on your face, except that the foundation doesnt like to mix with this product. It started to break up about 5 minutes after application, I tried to fix it with powder but it just looked so cakey at the end. I'd rather just moisturize my skin with a moisturizer before I use this again.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2017-06-17</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2017-06-17" /> </div></div><script type="text/javascript"> if (document.getElementById('bvseo-reviewsSection')) { document.getElementById('bvseo-reviewsSection').style.display = 'none'; }</script><!--end-reviews--><!--begin-pagination--><ul id="bvseo-paginationSection"> <li class="bvseo-paginationItem"><a class="bvseo-paginationLink" href="https://www.elfcosmetics.com:443/p/prep-hydrate-balm?coupon=35REWARD&utm_source=transactional&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=10375093_Friday%20Favorite:%20Prep%20and%20Hydrate%20Balm%20%2835REWARD%29%20%28NBM60D%29&c3ch=Email&c3nid=Friday%20Favorite:%20Prep%20and%20Hydrate%20Balm%20%2835REWARD%29%20%28NBM60D%29&bvrrp=Main_Site-en_US/reviews/product/2/9294.htm">Prep & Hydrate Balm Reviews - page 2</a></li></ul><!--end-pagination--><ul id="BVSEO_meta" style="display:none!important"> <li data-bvseo="bvDateModified">y_2017, m_8, d_18, h_24</li> <li data-bvseo="ps">bvseo_bulk, prod_bvrr, vn_bulk_1.0.0-hotfix-1</li> <li data-bvseo="cp">cp_1, bvpage1</li> <li data-bvseo="co">co_hasreviews, tv_0, tr_35</li> <li data-bvseo="cf">loc_en_US, sid_9294, prod, sort_[SortEntry(order=SUBMISSION_TIME, direction=DESCENDING)]</li> <li data-bvseo="diagnostics">clientName_elfcosmetics</li></ul><!--end-bvseo-reviews--><!--BVSEO|dz:Main_Site-en_US|sdk:v1.0.6.0-n|msg:timer 0ms -->
