Prep & Hydrate Balm is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 166.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from smells horrible I'm so disappointed in this product. I feel like maybe I got a bad one? The product itself works like a dream, but the smell is entirely off-putting. It smells like I'm rubbing dirty underwear on my face. I can smell a faint fragrance of what it's probably supposed to smell like, but it's heavily overpowered by something rank. Really upset, want to try another one to see if I got a bad one but don't want to spend ANOTHER $8...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What so many are smelling is castor oil. I think the smell everyone is referring to is the castor oil that is in this product. Yes it’s a distinct smell for sure but castor oil is awesome for the skin! I was checking out the ingredients looking for the bad smell culprit and bam there it was. Luckily that smell does fade quickly. I use to use straight castor oil on my face so the smell is not as bad with this balm bc it has aloe, and many other ingredients to help with the smell lol. Doesn’t bother me!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Break Outs :( I bought this product because it had good reviews and most elf products work for my skin. I have dry, textured skin and like to use products that give me a dewy finish. While this is fairly hydrating and cooling, it breaks me out like crazy. White heads in the weirdest places (under my eyes??) I don't recommend it if you're prone to breakouts because there definitely is an ingredient in this that is comedogenic

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped my dry skin! I've been using this twice a day for 3 weeks and it has helped my dry skin a ton! It also feels cool on your skin after you apply it. I apply it to my face, hands, elbows and knees. As for the smell, it doesn't smell bad at all. I've already stocked up!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Horrible Fishy Smell I bought this because of all of the hype about it. It absolutely stinks like dead fish. Horrible! Makes me gag to get it near my nose. Maybe mine is bad but it is a disappointment for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done! I’ve been using this as a primer for about two weeks now and I havnt had a single patch of dry skin on my face yet! It is very easy to apply and feels very nice and cooling on my skin. It also creates a very smooth texture to the skin that helps my foundation go on very nicely and is gentle on my sensitive skin. The only downside is that it has a very odd/unpleasant odor right after it is applied.

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!
