Rated 1 out of 5 by from I hate this. I was so excited for this after reading the reviews but I hate it. The smell is awful and the feel is even worse. I used baby skin before and felt it was ok and I'd try this out, same price and I usually love elf products. No. It just makes me skin feel oily and I see no effect on my pores at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What even is this? I regret buying this because it doesn't add anything useful, it just retracts from what was there. Meaning, after a few uses I didn't see any effect on my pores or any of the things a primer is supposed to do. It did make my skin smoother but only by way of this very silky coating that sits on your skin and doesn't extend the life of your foundation, etc. It's very chemical-y. You can feel it on your skin for the remainder of the day and the next, which I was not comfortable with. I'll probably throw it out and I'd stop anyone from buying it, tbh. Definitely invest in a quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I ordered this online, since i saw the "online only" but I had just seen it at my walmart right after i ordered it haha Oh well! My dear friend recommended this to me when I asked her if she had anything to recommend for pores since I use bareminerals. She suggested this. It works great. I applied it after my moisturizer and I let it sit on about 10 or 15 minutes before I added my powder, but i'm not sure how long you do or dont need to wait, that's just what I did and it worked well for me. I also used the mineral powder brush over it and it did well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the look, hate the smell This primer does indeed make my face smooth and my makeup looks great. However, this stuff STINKS! Like a high grade industrial chemical or something you'd smell in an auto body shop. Plus the bottle gives you the illusion that there's more in it than there actually is. Fix that and the smell, and I'd buy again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FAVORITE! This is my favorite e.l.f. product by far. I wear it even if I am not putting makeup on for the day. If I could buy a vat of this I would.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Smelly I bought this a couple of weeks ago and its moisturizing and fills in pores but the smell is so strong and it's not the best smell either. If you want a pore filler primer that is scentless i recommend Maybelline's baby skin pore eraser. I was highly disappointed when i got this. :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed.. I tried this primer on a whim because I've tried Elf's other primers, the Mineral Infused and the Hydrating primer and they both worked great. This one did not do the job at all. It takes a bit longer to settle in your skin and does not do much for the pores and it definitely did not keep my foundation on all day. I applied my makeup around 6am and by 10am, I had blotchy spots. Don't get me wrong, I love Elf's products, most of them work well and the price is awesome but this primer just didn't work for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gone to quickly! I love your primers but there is way less in the bottle than would appear by looking at the bottle. With the bottle design you can't tell when it is getting near the end either. Buying one more but it could possibly be the last.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Strong smell! I bought this with another primer a couple of months ago and just recently tried it. it had a smell that is so strong it took my breath, it also was stinging my face. VERY DISAPPOINTED!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for the price! I started buying this a couple of months ago, and I love it. I'd take half a star off only for the smell, but since it fades after a while, I won't complain. My makeup goes on a whole lot smoother with this, and I don't have to spend $20 or more. I feel a lot better knowing that I'm not only smoothing my makeup, but treating my skin. I've got a little advice for users out there: DON'T put on a lot when you use it. You'll find it super greasy and your makeup will melt. With this primer, a little goes a long way as its formula is pretty potent. I put several little peaks on my face after using witch hazel then I work it into my skin using gentle, circular movements. The result is a much smoother makeup application. This will be my fourth bottle purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I have combination skin, like my t-zone gets super oily and I get dry patches on my skin so ugh lol. This primer gets rid of my dry patches, I don't even need to apply a face cream or moisturizer beforehand so my foundation applies smooth without the dry patches. I do need to set my foundation with a powder though, but thats it. I love this product since I have to apply a lot of face cream and moisturizer in order to get rid of those dry areas so my when I apply my foundation I don't get those dry patches, but this gets rid of that routine and cuts down the process.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't Do the Job I don't really think the primer is that effective on covering up pores. Not enough coverage. It also has a really strong scent I cannot stand when applying it to my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps my skin smooth! I have a combination of dry and oily skin, which can be hard to shop for. I already had a moisturizing primer, but it didn't work for the more oily areas of my face. This primer keeps my skin perfectly smooth and clear even after layers of makeup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best primer ever! I only wish that elf would not trick us with their packaging because there is only a little bit of product but OMG this primer is my holy grail. it blurs imperfections, pores, and it makes my foundation and powders spread evenly. the smell is a bit medicinal but it fades away. use only a bit because it is silicone based so a little goes a very long way.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a fan of the smell I bought this a week ago bc I ran out of my smashbox primer and I wanted to replace it with a drug store product. It does leave my face feeling very smooth after application, however, I just can't get over the awful lemon-y smell! It is WAY too strong for a primer and I almost hate using it bc it's just too much for me. If they fixed the smell, I'd repurchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this!! I have been using this along with the acne fighting foundation and have had NO breakouts for almost 2 months!! The silky smooth texture feels so amazing on my skin and it only takes a pea size amount. The smell is pretty neutral to me and doesn't bother me at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wasn't For Me I really wanted to like this product but maybe my skin combination (oily and normal for a combination) wasn't made for this formula. It just sat on top on my face and made my foundation all broken looking. It would not blend into my skin and I saw no reduction to my pores at all. I didn't even want to give it to a friend because it was so awful and I have never had a bad experience with an E.L.F product like this. It made my hands all slick so I had to waste a makeup remover wipe just to get it off my fingers. It was just repulsive to be honest and I have been trying to find a decent primer for under $20 for years now and I was holding out hope for this to be a dupe for the Too Faced primer but alas no. The bottle itself was nice and the pump worked perfectly but I can't wear the bottle. I have not lost hope yet, I do want to try the remaining primers by E.L.F in hopes of finding a good primer that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from smells terrible don't recommend buying :( My mom bought this a couple months ago and gave it to me because she didn't have a use for it. I thought I liked it at first when i put in on my wrist and it felt like silk. It felt so nice! I later tested it on my face before foundation but while I was putting it on it flaked on me. I was so disappointed because I actually thought it was going to work. Not to mention it smells like nasty chemicals. bleh. gross.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing product I picked this up when a 50% off sale was occurring and I'm so glad I did! It makes my foundation look so smooth and really does minimize pores without a silicone-like feel. It smells nice as well! I definitely recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sensitive skin beware!!! This primer caused an allergic reaction where I broke out in hives :( .. I washed the product off and the next day my face was swollen and my throat started to close up . Went to the doctor and sure enough allergic reaction:( not trying to bash the brand (I actually really love elf products ) just warning those with sensitive skin . needless to say I threw this product out and will be sticking to elfs mineral face primer from now on:)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Um.. The Smell i just purchased this product and tried it out as soon as i got home. All i have to say is that the smell is just too much to handle. It smells like death and it honestly makes it so hard to use.. If somehow they fixed the product to have a more pleasant smell, I might consider repurchasing but right now I'm going back to walmart and getting my money back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great on my acne prone skin! I struggle constantly with mild breakouts. I really appreciate makeup and it's hard to find a routing that is going to make my makeup look good while also taking care of my skin. This is not oily, it also helps my makeup look fresher longer! Love the packaging and paired with the acne fighting foundation, this is a daily must for me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So smooth I love its ability to mask skin imperfections. Glides on smoothly. It's smell is not the best, but that does NOT keep me from using it. Simultaneously, I prefer products that lack a scent or fragrance because I've read it's better for skin. Looking forward to trying the Blemish Prone primer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product I bought this 2 months ago and it has officially replaced my other primer which is double the price of this. It goes on smooth and my make up looks great over the top of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! Makes my skin feel so smooth and hydrated. Hides pores which I love! Tea tree oil smell is a little over powering at first but it mellows down once it soaks into your skin! Love it so much. Gonna keep buying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Greasy! Makeup DOES NOT stay on. I bought this product a little over a month ago, but I stopped using it after three or four tries. The formula is just terrible; it feels as though I'm rubbing petroleum jelly all over my face! It feels greasy and makes my skin feel disgusting. Also, the smell is not appealing whatsoever. At first, I thought maybe I wasn't waiting long enough before I applied my concealer and powder, so I tried it out a few more times. It's just not a very good product. My makeup did not stay in place, and I found that after applying my concealer and powder, this primer left my makeup brushes feeling greasy and dirty as well. If you're going to buy a drugstore primer, DO NOT get this one. If you're going to try out one of elf's other primers, I recommend their Mineral Infused Face Primer; it's the same price as this one but ACTUALLY DOES ITS JOB and IS NOT greasy.
