Product Review | E.L.F. + Coco Glow Moisturizer With SPF ($10, ELF website and in-stores)

Review: This item was sent to me and no monetary compensation was involved. All thoughts and opinions regarding this product are my own and not sponsored.
I am loving E.L.F.'s pink and gray packaging on this product. Do you remember E.L.F. back in the day where almost everything was in a clear plastic packaging except for their Studio Line which was in black that mimicked the Nars packaging except theirs was a smooth black plastic versus Nars' rubbery texture. As we have all seen, that is no longer the case. They have also ventured into skincare. This is one of those Coconut scented skincare items. You all know I love the scent of Coconut (and Cucumber, too).
This product is easily dispensed with a pump. It claims that it hydrates the skin and HA, Shea Butter and Coconut oil provides a healthy and youthful texture to the skin. The consistency of this moisturizer is thick and tacky for my liking. I watched Natalie on YouTube (Hashtag Fab Life) and she mentioned that this has a similar consistency to the Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Primer. I do not own that primer nor have I tried it before so I am only going by what she had disclosed on her video. Given the consistency of this product, I do not like using it as a moisturizer but paired with the Wet N' Wild Water Drop Primer (which I use as a hydrating moisturizer), it is amazing. It applies a lot easier and it becomes less tacky on my skin. Also, based on Natalie's thoughts about its similarities to the Too Faced Hangover Primer, I have used this as a primer. It's consistency and tackiness provides a good grip on makeup application. If you prefer a thick moisturizer, you will love this. Will I repurchase it? While I can make it work as a primer, I have other primers that does the same exact thing. Now that I have found a good product to pair it with, it works really well. The only thing that I am hesitant repurchasing it is because for $10, you only get 1.2 fl oz. So if you intend to use this daily, maybe at least once or twice a day, you will end up repurchasing this product almost every other week.
