Our most nourishing primer, for a dewy look and flawless makeup application. Ideal for normal to dry skin.

Works Well With

Moisture-rich primer nourishes, soothes, and conditions skin as it creates a smooth surface for flawless makeup application. The formula provides a soft-focus effect to help minimize the look of pores, fine lines, and imperfections.

Laura created this expert Hydrating primer specifically for dry, dehydrated skin. Lightweight, creamy formula creates a protective moisture buffer, with an enhanced antioxidant vitamin "cocktail" that helps protect skin against harmful, aging effects of the environment.

Prepares for and perfects makeup application

Like all Laura Mercier™ Primers, it creates a perfectly smooth, even surface for applying foundation. It helps makeup glide on easily and last longer, so your look stays fresh and colour-true for hours.

Why Laura's primers are different

Unlike traditional primers that are overloaded with silicone smoothers, Laura Mercier™ Primers are water-based and include a minimal concentration of the lightest silicones. That's why they feel fresh and lightweight, and why they work as well as they do.

Natural/Dewy Finish

Foundation Primer - Hydrating gives skin a natural, dewy finish, with invisible coverage. Ideal for normal to dry skin types.

Formulation Details

Non-comedogenic. Dermatologist tested.

Apply on clean skin, or after your moisturizer or sunscreen. Gently massage primer into skin’s surface with fingertips. Follow with Tinted Moisturizer, Foundation, or Concealer.

PRO TIP

Place in the refrigerator before use. The coolness will refresh your skin and help reduce visible puffiness.

This is by far the best primer I've ever used. My primed face has a silky feel to it. I do love the fact that it contains Vitamins A, C and E. It also contains Sodium Hyaluronate, the more bio-available form of that awesome skin (and wrinkle) plumper hyaluronic acid. What is not to love about this unscented, soothing, non-greasy primer containing antioxidants that are good for aging skin? Absolutely nothing. It is awesome!

I'm a real LM fan, have been for years, so when I received a Primer sample, I tried it, loved it, and immediately bought the Hydrating version for winter and the Radiance version for nights out.
When I try to use the Hydrating formula, a clear white liquid drips out of the tube whenever I squeeze to dispense product. Similar to water, it drips with every tilt of the tube. I do manage to get the product on my face but not without a complete mess.
Nothing seems to help. Have shaken before use, have not shaken, have kept product in a cool room, in a warm room....
For $30, you'd expect a successfully emulsified product.

    Comments about Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - Hydrating:

    I got this as a sample when i redeemed my beauty points. I was excited to try it but it feels like your just putting cool lotion on your face. It doesn't help with the make up staying power at all. You keep on wanting to put more on thinking it will change but it doesn't. I'll keep using it since i have it but i will not purchase it.

      It was reccommended that I choose this primer as I am over 65. It goes on beautifully and make-up glides over it and I don't seem to need as much foundation to get a smooth finished look.

      Comments about Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - Hydrating:

      I have tried to "save money" by foregoing the primer in my routine. This primer does so much more than just hold the foundation or tinted moisturizer in place. It pampers my skin and keeps it from flaking in the cold Minnesota winters. It feels light and non-greasy. My skin drinks it in and feels refreshed! I don't go without primer any more.

      Comments about Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - Hydrating:

      Feels wonderful on the skin and you only need to use a small amount. It did keep my LM tinted moisturizer and concealer on for the day. I wanted a product that would nourish my skin and keep my makeup on and I found it in this primer. I will purchase this product again.

      Comments about Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - Hydrating:

      I was very happy with this product until it started separating. Now every time I go to use it, water pours out of the tube. I'm not about to pay $32.00 for water! It's too bad because it could be so much better. I think this product needs to be re formulated before selling any more of it. It's basically a waste of your money.

      Perfect for winter dryness

      By 

      from Denver, CO

      Site Member

      Comments about Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - Hydrating:

      I switch to this primer each winter as my skin gets drier. I tend to break out easily, and adding oil to my regime can make me break out or make my makeup slide off by the end of the day. This adds the extra moisture I need in the winter without creating an oil slick, breakouts, or sliding makeup.

      Good for Oily Skin - read this review

      Comments about Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - Hydrating:

      Beleive it or not, I have very oly skin, and yet during the winter months I find myself using this primer. As in the winter time, I find my skin may dry out a little bit, and this one helps me stay hydrated, and does not cause my skin to look Oly. Once winter is over, I go back to using the Oil Free. If you have oly skin, I recommed you to try this at least for a few days, ask for a sample and you will love it!

          No, it does not have SPF.  But if you use a good foundation, the foundation or your moisturizer will have the SPF in it.

          GA Lady, Yes, you can use Foundation Primer Hydrating before you apply your Mineral Powder makeup. Always give your primer a few second to dry before you apply your mineral makeup.

          A:

          Susan, Hydrating Foundation Primer is a moisture rich primer that nourishes, soothes, and conditions the skin for flawless makeup application but, it does not offer the same moisturizing benefits as a night time or daily moisturizer.

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          J, The period after opening date can be found on the foundation primer tube or packaging. Please look for a jar icon that has 3m, 6m, or 12m.This indicates how long a product is good for after opening. 3m is good for 3 months, 6m is good for 6 months and 12 m is good for 12 months after opening.

      • Q:

        I am new to Laura Mercier primer and foundation. I'm thinking of trying Candleglow foundation in Shell (very pale skin, cool undertones). I'm 65 and am unsure which LM primer would go best with Candleglow foundation: hydrating or radiance? Since the Candleglow supposedly gives a luminous quality to the skin, would a "radiance" primer still be needed? I have dry skin, and I stay away from "matte" looking results in my makeup! I want a soft-focus (blur those fine lines!), luminous appearance post-foundation and primer. I also see that LM has a primer with SPF protection, but again, I'm confused if the finished result would be more radiant or matte if using THIS primer? What is the difference in appearance between these three primers (hydrating, radiant, and SPF primer)? What do you advise to meet my needs for use with Candleglow foundation? Thank you!

        • A:

          Hello Luv2Smile!
          As I too have skin that has a tendency to be dry I have been using the Hydrating primer all year round, however, during the winter months when I feel I need a little more color I do mix one part Radiance primer in with the Hydrating primer as my foundation base. This adds a subtle glow to my skin before applying the foundation. I use the SPF Tinted moisturizer for everyday use. I haven't tried the Candleglow products yet. As long as you have one of their products with SPF like the foundation of your choice I think you would be happy with the Hydrating primer & mix in some Radiance primer. Also if I am dressing up for an evening I use more Radiance underneath to give me a soft luminous look. I have had people compliment me on my skin for years & have been told it looks like I am not wearing any! Hope this helps!

          I use the hydrating primer to add hydration to the skin. I use to wear radiance intill the hydrating came out. I hope this helps.

        Have used regular LM primer for years, but w/ aging (67 y/o), high-dose IV steroids, chemo, New England winters, etc, my skin is thinning, dry, & very sensitive (easily reddened). Photo-sensitivity also very high due to multiple concomitant medications. Now handicapped, usually unable to shop in dept stores.
