This is definitely good as a primer. Its gel texture dries almost instantly making it fantastic for mornings before foundation, however I dont find it hydrating at all. My skin feels quite tight after using it and my foundation has been cracking lately. I received this product in a beauty bag and I wouldn't purchase.

This is an absolute must-have for any makeup lover. Even though pricey, a little goes a long way and it makes your face feel so smooth and soft. Makeup applied a million times easier and eye makeup is also easier to remove afterwards. Illamasqua has got me hooked

I absolutely LOVE this product! I am not blessed with oily skin and need to hydrate mine AND it is quite sensitive at the same time! I have been struggling with loads of primers that my skin just rejects and surprises me with some spots on the most inconvenient times.
This Hydra Veil Primer is now a staple in my skincare -and make up collection and will continue buying it till the end of time :)

I love this product. When i first tried it on the back of my hand it was really sticky and took a while to soak in. I used just over half a scoop (it comes with one) and mixed it with 1 pump of my foundation, it turned all light and fluffy and mousse like. It then applied like a dream, took half the time to blend into my face and the finish was just amazing. I dont think i can live without this now & need to try the other version too. Highly recommend this product.

I've used this about 5 times in the course of a week, to try and see if "practice makes perfect". I just can't see how this is could work? It's so sticky, it's like putting hair gel on your face, then it doesn't sink in at all and it makes my foundation go on patchy and horrible. Maybe the regular primer works but the hydra didn't for me- at all! Also broke out on my cheeks, which never happens to me.

The trick with this is to mix a spoon full with your foundation and blend onto the skin using a brush ideally - it gives a Photoshop finish and makes the skin really flawless. it also helps your make up stay put all day.... and night!
I found that if I just wanted a natural make up look to just use the primer alone directly onto my skin and a pop of blush on my cheeks - it really smoothed out and blurred any lines or blemishes.

I wanted to try this one for so long and then I got it in my December beauty box, boy, was I happy. It's a gel type hydrating primer, you only need a small amount of product to cover your whole face, it spreads easily and sinks into my skin beautifully. Keeps my skin hydrated without adding shine to my combination type skin. Would recommend it and will be buying it when I'm done with this one.

This is the best of the best primers I have ever used, absolutely spot on! I received this as a sample after I run out I bought full size, is better than any other branded primers! Holly grail product. Absolutely in love with it.

I got this primer in one of the lookfantastic boxes and I've fallen in love with it ever since. I'm definitely going to repurchase this. It's a little different from other primers as it looks like a jelly and might seem funny at first, but once you put it on it hydrates and smoothens the skin and makes your makeup glide on afterwards. And it makes it last the entire day. I definitely recommend this product!

i have tried lots of primers and this is definitely my favourite, I've tried other brands like benefit, mac, loreal and max factor but none have been as good as this! will definitely purchase again

I have honestly tried almost every "popular" primer out there - Smashbox, Hourglass, Makeup Forever... You name it! This is by far the best, no silicone consistency, just enough hydration to ensure my foundation glides on looks flawless. I have combination skin and this is perfect for me.

Hands down without a doubt the best primer out there. Seriously good stuff. I like dewy liquid foundations, ie ysl touche eclat, but the staying power is not so great on me, 4 hours top until I purchased the hydra veil. Honestly has doubled the wear, has not broken me out and feels cool and calming on my sometimes sensitive skin. I cannot recommend this product enough. Be sure to wait a couple of minutes for the primer to set before applying foundation.

Love this! I bought five months ago and I couldn't be happier with this Hydra veil.
My makeup stays perfect and my skin feels great.

Each time I've used it my make up has stayed on looking fresh all day ... even in the heat. So glad I bought it.

Love Love Love this !!!!!
For anyone still looking for the perfect face base, this is really amazing... you can even see how good it is just by looking at it in the pot as it levels itself out.
It really did smooth out my skin, and felt the benefits all day long.

Amazing primer! Was not disappointed. Will be using it daily :)

This product is, by far, the most miraculous moisturising primer I have ever tried. I have a mature, dehydrated combination skin and I find this product perfect combo between a primer and a moisturiser. You don't need to quench your skin with layers and layers of products. It leaves the skin hydrated and radiant, and creates a perfect canvas for foundation. You can also wear it alone. It is worth every bit of the value. I highly recommend it.
