Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does not work for me I was really excited to get this because I read great reviews. However, this formula irritated my skin. I have mature skin that is sensitive and this just didnt work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from obsessed I love this, obsessed. It is sooo smooth. It gives you a smooth canvas to work with Its not heavy and or slippery and and it helps with the texture of my foundation. I have combination skin with very dry areas and found this very hydrating. I have very sensitive skin and break out easily, and it did not make my acne worse like other moisturizer so, and did not irritate the dry parts even parts with eczema. I apply as directed, and then massage in and it requires zero dry time before applying foundation. ELF need to keep this up and continue helping people with problematic skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very surprised! This is a great little product that you will have to find the way it works best for you but it will be worth it! I don't play well with primers, they feel heavy and slippery and change the texture of my foundations. I have tried many from drugstore to lux brands. I have skin on the dry side and found this very hydrating, but if you're not dry you can use less. For me, I apply as directed, and then massage in and let completely dry down before applying foundation. I use high coverage, long wearing foundations and even though I apply a very thin layer for a more natural look, they can be drying and make my skin look dull. This little guy really makes a difference! Doesn't look dewy, but makes a matte look more like natural skin and a bit glowy. I am really surprised! I have very sensitive skin and break out easily, but haven't had any problems so far. I have already been using this daily for a week and have ordered a second one, just in case. Hope ELF keeps this as a staple in the closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply AHHHMAZING moisturizing primer! I bought this a few months back and it is, quite simply, the BEST primer I have ever used! I am a total makeup / skincare junkie and this outperforms products that are far pricier. I use it after my moisturizer and before my foundation. E.L.F. Prep & Hydrate Balm results in the smoothest makeup application. My face looks fresh all day and stays hydrated.

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!

Can this be used as a primer?? I love the e.l.f. green primer that reduces redness, but am wanting to try something new. My skin is uneven and I often suffer from acute rosacea. How will this holdup as a primer???

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.
