Review: I was excited to receive this as a gift in January. After reading the ingredients that are in this tube of hydration, it didn't take me a long time to finally slapping some on my face to try. I love the very soothing look of the packaging. It comes in a baby blue box with white and light blue typography and water drops design. The primer is contained in a frosted tube with the same design as the box. The product can be easily dispensed by the squeeze tube.
This primer has a very lightweight consistency and it feels very nice on the skin during application. It also has a light soothing scent which I appreciate; very spa like. However, this primer made my eyes watery right after applying it. It was the only new face base I used that time so I didn't really have any other items to point a finger to except for this one. My eyes stopped feeling watery eventually; probably after 30 minutes. I also stopped using the primer after this experience (I did resume use after a few days which I will discuss shortly). Besides the watery eyes, this primer provided an all-day hydration without making my face feel oily or greasy. I love that it has tons of skincare ingredients and it also extends makeup wear nicely.
I tried this primer again three days after my first application with no other new products and somehow it worked just fine - no watery eyes. I am so glad that it no longer gave me watery eyes because I love that this primer can be used alone as a moisturizer. It contains just a little bit over 1 oz so its $14 dollar price tag is not so bad. I recommend this primer if you are looking for something to hydrated your skin and also double as a skincare item. Just be forewarned that it did give me watery eyes during the first time I used it. I have sensitive skin so if you do, too, you might experience the same thing.
*This product was a third party gift and it is not a PR Gifted item from the company. All are my honest thoughts and opinions.*
